Where has he gone?

Returning from a week in Slough '“ my children have always enjoyed exotic locations '“ thanks to the local Conservatives, I found a copy of their Northumberland News waiting for me on the mat.

Ever since that Brexit advert, which suggested millions would be returned to the NHS once we had taken back control of our affairs from Brussels, I quickly moved beyond a headline claiming the NHS will benefit from a budget boost.

Having spent a week travelling the capital’s public transport, I had had enough of works of fiction masquerading as railway timetables to last a lifetime and went straight to the back page, where there was a list of local Conservative councillors.

No matter how closely I looked, one name was missing – that of my local councillor, Roderick Lawrie, who represents Norham and Islandshire.

I knew that he could be difficult to contact, and had even heard rumours that he had relocated to the Isle of Man. Could someone please tell me what has happened to Coun Lawrie?
