a man who does live, and make his living, in this part of the world, and who understands this division, and who by no stretch of the imagination could say had come to it simply to get a return ticket to Westminster is the sort of man who would be a very very good representative for Norfolk.
Clip is viewable here. Note the use of the word ‘division’, hardly ever used these days to mean consistency. Local or not, the Liberal candidate came third.
Thorpe, of course, was born in London, and educated in Surrey, Eton and Oxford – but represented a seat in Devon. It would be churlish to point out such inconsistency, though.
