Many congratulations on your victory in the Parliamentary election yesterday.
Anne Campbell, whose shoes you are (figuratively of course) stepping into, was a member of the Parliamentary choir. Although she had many facets which I shall not particularly miss, I did find it somehow reassuring to know that my MP was throwing herself into the arts on a regular basis – albeit surrounded by a pot-pourri of Lords and Westminster high-flyers. I wondered if you had any plans to continue this fine choral tradition set by your predecessor?
I believe that Mrs Campbell sang in the alto section. I would suggest that you would be unwise to do this yourself unless you have been especially trained for such things.
All the very best of luck,

Many thanks – but I fear that my voice would not be up to standard in any register!
