Bob Symes: Liberal candidate
Thanks to Malcolm Baines for telling me that television presenter Bob Symes, who died last month, fought the Mid Sussex constituency for the Liberal Party in the two general elections of 1974.
He finished a respectable second each time though, like most Liberal candidates, he did a little better in February than October.
His Telegraph obituary says that Symes was later a Conservative candidate in an election for the European Parliament.
