That's good to hear, after the Conservative Party member and former youth development worker lost that contentious parliamentary race back in 2010. From Jamaica Observer: "When asked what it's like to be the first-ever, black political appointee to a British PM, he shares, 'It's a great responsibility. It's important to get in right and represent our community well. We simply do not have (in the UK and Europe) enough black people in politics. David Cameron has made a commitment to do his part in turning this around, but the onus is on us as a community to get involved. So for me, it is important to perform at the highest level, to demonstrate that our community has the talent to operate at this level and that we are not just part of a quota; but that we have real value to offer.'"
