Bob Seely was elected as Isle of Wight councillor for Central Wight in the 2013 and 2017 local elections.
Back in 2005, he stood as the Conservative candidate in Broxtowe, Nottingham, coming very close to winning the race with 37.2% of the votes (18,161) – just 2,296 behind the Labour candidate.
He’s been a spin doctor for the Tories and a member of the PR team at music channel MTV, not to mention serving in Iraq in the Territorial Army. Bob’s currently doing a PhD at King’s College, London, where his area of study is non-conventional warfare.
As he first disclosed on OnTheWight, Bob had an ambition to become a candidate for the Isle of Wight MP, when Andrew Turner was no longer in the role.
When in April 2017 Andrew Turner stepped down after his views on homosexuality became widely-reported and criticised, Bob became one of three candidates for selection. After a messy round of people dropping out and others popping up, Bob was finally selected as the Conservative candidate for the Isle of Wight MP.
He secured the seat in the 2017 General Election with 51.3% of the vote, 38,190 votes.
