A Conservative Democrat: Simon Burns interview
This article is from the October 2012 issue of Total Politics
Once you’ve had the opportunity to get to know Simon Burns, he strikes you as one of those people you like to have around. Politics can at times be a routine, and dull, and the transport minister always finds a way of lightening proceedings, intentionally or otherwise. He has a good sense of humour, gets himself into often ridiculous but hilarious (to his friends, at least) scrapes, and is utterly loyal to both friends and party.
