The MP for St Albans is Anne Main (Conservative) who lives in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire. First elected in 2005, she took a 43% share of the vote in 2017, ahead of Daisy Cooper (Liberal Democrat, 32%) and Kerry Pollard (Labour 23%).
In the 2016 EU Referendum, Main campaigned for Britain to leave the European Union. 62.7% of the constituency voted to remain. An unsuccessful petition calling for her resignation followed.
The basic facts about Anne are these:
- born in 1957
- married with four children
- BA in English from Swansea, PGCE from Sheffield
- former councillor, teacher and full-time mum
From a less-than-revealing interview with the BBC we also learn that:
- Anne's hero is Margaret Thatcher
- her favourite song is Lady Midnight by Leonard Cohen
- she's 'not afraid to get dirty' (just when you though it was getting interesting, we should point out that the question related to her fashion sense. Shame.)
- she can't live without…mascara, her dog and her microwave
So there you have it. Anne can be contacted at 104 High Street, London Colney, St Albans, Herts, AL2 1QL or via the House of Commons address below. Visit her website.
