With The New Saints FC’s season coming to an end on the final day of April, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve done an interview.
Following the Welsh Cup final victory at Bangor’s Nantporth Stadium against Bala Town, there were on-pitch chats with MOTM, Danny Redmond, and TNS’ victorious head coach, Craig Harrison.
I do enjoy being involved in interviews and, as well as the football ones, I’ve been thinking for a while that I’d like to extend beyond the work-related conversations.
When I saw on Twitter that Dudley North’s Conservative MP, Marco Longhi, was in the town’s market place holding a pop-up surgery, I thought that would be a great opportunity.
I sent him a message asking if he was up for it, he replied in the affirmative and the scene was set.
You can watch the interview in full below, where we started with Marco’s journey to Parliament which began as a councillor in Walsall.
We touched on his role as trade envoy to Brazil, his ongoing commitment to grassroots involvement, the inspiration for the pop-up surgery and, with a general selection on the horizon, I asked him why he believes that the people of Dudley North should vote Conservative.
