Architect with designs on parliament falls short

Architect Iain Meek of Bromley-based practice Meek Associates stood for the Holborn and St Pancras seat in last week’s general election

He prophesied a favourable result on his blog: ‘A Scots-born independent MP wins in May 2010… My opponents must be trembling!… Must make more time to get everything done when I stand for re-election. Hopefully I won’t have to split my time between work and lobbying/canvassing/whatever professional politicians get up to next time.’

But his update on 7 May was more philosophical. ‘Lost!’ he reported, ‘By a mere 25,154! Many thanks to all who voted for me. I will do (a lot) better next time.’

A comment on his blog read: ‘As one of the 44 people who voted for you I thought I’d say hello.’
