The House will never be the same.



I fully agree with all of the tributes paid to Louise Mensch in response to her decision to retire from politics immediately.

Louise Mensch was such a breath of fresh air to politics when she became a candidate for the Conservatives all those years ago.

I'm absolutely certain that her personal vote won Corby for the Conservatives at the 2010 General Election.

Her laid back style was second to none and the fact that she was so up front about her past only drew in even more admirers and respect.

The House of Commons will be are far worse place without Louise but I for one wish Louise and her family all the very best for the future because she is such a talented writer and professional person in her own right.
