Well. Few people thought Donald Trump would win the Republican nomination. He did. Now he has gone on to confound the pundits and won the White House. Once again the experts called it wrong. No doubt the results will be studied and analysed in the days and weeks ahead but one thing is clear the silent majority who never take to Twitter or sign petitions or make a fuss have had a different view to the political class. I see it all the time in Westminster so many of the political class get caught up with their own interests they forget the views of the majority. This is one reason why I always refuse London engagements outside of Parliament sittings. I think it is important to come back to the constituency. Listen to what voters really think. Not the few people who rush to abuse on Twitter and in emails that is like ‘water off a ducks back’ to me, no the views of the silent majority are what matters. People who spend their time quietly getting on with their lives.
