I don’t know how politicians do it. Putting yourself in front of an electorate is an odd thing to do.
I’ve just written my “campaign” statement for election as a parent governor of my child’s school. It’s something I want to do, I think I can make a difference, I want to add whatever weight I can to the state education system against the scourge of private education, etc. But it’s very odd blowing my own trumpet in public.
We’ll see how it goes.
