Tessa Munt on being a newbie MP: “It’s a very serious job, but I’m having a ball.”

As this BBC Somerset report excitedly notes, Tessa Munt is “the first Liberal Democrat MP for Wells since World War II”, having defeated Tory incumbent David Heathcote-Amory in May.

You can read here about how she’s settling into her new office (“The most important thing for me was making sure we were actually accessible from ever single part of the constituency”), furnished with recycled fittings (“I did actually do a raid on some of the outgoing MPs offices. … I don’t frankly mind if my box files are second hand.”).

And as for how she’s taken to the job of MP for Wells:

It’s a very serious job, but I’m having a ball. It’s absolutely fabulous… I learn several new things every day. I’m really enjoying it.”
