I was sorry to hear that Tim Yeo has been deselected after 30 years of good service.
I am not a Conservative but was seriously considering voting for him in 2015 as he is an MP that really understands climate change and has been an effective chair of the Energy and Climate Change Committee.
To me, these issues are more important than whether he has a house in Kent or Suffolk. I have met him a few times and he always seemed aware of local issues.
The problem is that South Suffolk is such a safe Tory seat, so we may well not get such a reasonable, well-informed representative in Parliament next time.
