Michael is the former Member of Parliament for Lichfield which he represented for over 32 years, winning 9 general elections.  Before being elected to Parliament, he was in business exporting to radio and TV stations in 48 countries and was a Chartered Engineer.  He is a broadcaster and a raconteur. He lives in Lichfield.

After a career in broadcasting following university, I was elected Member of Parliament for the Mid Staffordshire constituency, which included the City of Lichfield, in 1992. In 1997, the constituency was changed and renamed back to ‘Lichfield’ – the original Lichfield Parliamentary Constituency goes back to 1305 and was one of the very first – and I remained the MP for Lichfield until July 2024. In the 2019 General Election, I won 64.5% of the total vote out of a field of 5 candidates.
