At the time I'd told her that I'd never seek to sit on the Council. In my opinion that was not how it was done. I told her that I'd wait to be asked.....and then I was.
Thanks to a combination of professional and personal reasons, I've not been able to attend as often as I would have liked but I am proud to have conceived the idea of the Stoddart Dinner and helped to steer it from conception to delivery (including my faltering speech).
So, in May I shall, as it were, return to the backbenches with some fond memories of my time on the ship's bridge (please excuse the mixed metaphors).
