OUT IN THE FIELD: Politicians upstaged by baby Milo
Well, that was an interesting old election wasn’t it? Mrs May’s pre-election confidence, poorly judged manifesto – particularly for people in Eastbourne – and half of the Eastbourne population voting tactically came back to bite her royally on the backside and as a consequence, Conservative Caroline Ansell lost her seat here in the town and Liberal Democrat Stephen Lloyd is back in. I was at the count at the Town Hall on Thursday night and Friday morning, waiting for the result to come through and as exciting as it was, watching the live results, much of the attention fell on gorgeous little Milo Lambert, the six-month-old baby son of the Labour Party’s candidate Jake Lambert. Little Milo wasn’t fazed by the lights, camera, action of the whole night and smiled sweetly at everyone, regardless of what colour rosettes they were wearing. In fact, little Milo’s behaviour was certainly a lot better than some of the attendees at the count.
