Episode 351 of 1340 episodes

With a number of well- known names, as well as others not so well known, felled brutally last week, how hard is it to move from Westminster into the real world? We talk to two who lost their seats in 2010. Claire Ward was the Labour MP for Watford who lost her seat in 2010 - she is now chairman of Pharmacy Voice which is the trade association for community pharmacies and Andy Reed is a former Labour MP for Loughborough, 1997 - 2010 and is now director of the international Sports Management MBA at Loughborough University.
