Just to say that Philip Lee got the selection in Bracknell. He will be an absolutely brilliant candidate and I offer him my genuine congratulations. Rory Stewart came second and I came third. It's been quite an experience, which I will blog about properly later.
Obviously I am gutted; who wouldn't be? But it was a fair contest and there can only be one winner. And Philip is a very worthy one.
Thanks to Bracknell Conservatives for handling the whole selection so well and thanks to all those of you who have been texting, emailing and twittering your words of encouragement throughout the day. It means a lot.
I'm now driving to Saffron Walden to celebrate my Dad's eightieth birthday. I'll try and get myself in the mood on the journey by playing some Mango Groove!
