Before his first bid for Parliament as a Liberal, he said: "If I were to fight, it would be as a Rochdale man for Rochdale."
Former Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith was one of Rochdale's favourite sons, a large man who filled an unforgettably larger than life role in British politics. With his 25 plus stones and forthright Lancashire manner he was a favourite of Fleet Street and openly disdainful of what he considered the hypocrisy of Westminster.

He lasted only six months in his first job as a clerk at the Inland Revenue before he was told to give up his political activities or leave he left.
