Paul was the Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament for Hereford from 1997 to 2010 and served as the Party’s spokesman on both Foreign Affairs and Defence, a post he held during the Iraq War. He served for a year as an Honorary Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy as part of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme and on the NATO Parliamentary Assembly for five years. A close friend and confidante of Charles Kennedy, Paul was integral to the development of the Liberal Democrats during Charles' tenure as Leader of the Party.
Paul sadly died following a short illness in May 2017. He is remembered fondly by Wellington Street Partners for his vision for our company and his contribution during its early years. His jokes were legendary and they, and he, remain part of the DNA of Wellington Street Partners.
