I have just finished an interview on the Jeremy Vine show. I was defending Bedfordshire as today we came bottom in the Country Life league of counties.
There was an adjudicator in the studio and I was being given the chance to have Bedfordshire voted up by the programme.
I lost. Luton and our proximity to London being the reason.
Alistair Burt MP agrees with me, he is stood looking over my shoulder as I type this! He has beautiful villages in his patch - Odell, Sharnbrook and Ickwell, to name just a few.
He says "who are Country Life anyway"?
So not fair!
