Leslie vowed to work for everyone in her constituency, not just Conservative voters. She said: “I will serve you all with every inch of who I am and every piece of my heart because I will be your MP. I have a sense of enormous responsibility and I have a lot to live up to. It’s a very strange feeling that 22,000 people not only voted for you but put their trust in you at any one time.”
