Francis Maude has written a MY WEEK diary in the Sunday Times, telling of his week teaching English in Rwanda. He's out there with Andrew Mitchell and his group of 100 Tory activists, candidates and MPs. It brought back a lot of memories for me of my trip there last year. Andrew asked me to go with them again this time, and, believe me, I was tempted. It was one of the most memorable weeks of my life.
If Andrew's political career ended tomorrow he could look back with pride at what he and his entourage have achieved in their time in Rwanda. They have left a lasting legacy in a country which has pulled itself up by its bootstraps after its terrible experiences of the mid 1990s.
Makes you proud to be a Conservative.
UPDATE: Tobias Ellwood tells of his experience in Rwanda on ConHome.
