How to survive having a politician brother

Richard Cooper
 It's not been a good week for Ed with brother David taking his bat and ball home. So I thought I'd share my views of having a political brother.

Mr brother, Richard got elected as a Councillor in Harrogate at the same election as me in 1999. He was also a paid political agent for a while as I was. He was on the Cabinet at Harrogate Council for a number of years as was I in Kirklees. We've pretty much managed successfully to avoid stepping on each others toes and rivalry for key Party positions is highly unlikely.

So long as he remains in the Conservative Party we should be OK!


  1. Gosh. You could hardly tell he is your brother. He looks really handsome and dishy.
