The Liberal councillor who wrote Survivors

Maybe posting the theme from Survivors wasn't in the best taste. But I am glad I did because of an email I received from a reader.

Seven episodes of the show were written by Martin Worth. And the reader pointed me to his Guardian obituary:
In the 80s, while living in Fletching, East Sussex, he became interested in the Liberal party after receiving a call from a Liberal agent asking if he could do something about Conservative popularity in a Liberal desert. 
He turned things around politically, and over the next few years he was elected as an East Sussex county councillor. Hearing the announcement at the election count of his victory, dethroning a long-term Conservative, was one of the great moments of his life.
