Watch your former MP dancing like a loon at the Lib Dem conference
You can’t groove away the pain
Cambridge’s very own ‘DJHupz’ is not shrinking from the limelight after losing the constituency in May by 599 votes.
Our former MP, Julian Huppert, was caught strutting his stuff during the (in)famous Lib Dem Disco last night at the party’s conference.

He’s the one in the shiny yellow shirt
Although clearly keen for the now traditional event which he described as an “excellent night” and “one of the highlights of the conference,” Huppert also has the serious task of chairing a debate to decide party policy on the renewal of Trident, which he opposes.
Away from the ups and downs of party politics, he is now involved in formulating science policy, working full-time at the University. We don’t yet know if he’ll stand for re-election but he told The Guardian: “The desire to be in public service never leaves.
“I’ve been involved my whole adult life – I’ll always have an interest in making things better for people.”
Huppert’s Labour successor, self-described “socialist in a modern context” Daniel Zeichner, takes up a transport position in Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow cabinet where he hopes to make the case for more rules governing bus travel.
