Syria
Long post about the situation in Syria. Takes 2 mins to read: Watching the news about Syria over the past few months has been upsetting. Assad, with the support of Russia, has been bombing both I.S. and any one else who opposes his rule. The pictures from A...

Caps off to Miserly May and the Confrontational Conservatives
I welcome the decision on a pay rise for police and prison officers. They needed action to address the gap between pay and inflation. We should not be divided; it is not the fault of those workers that this change in policy only helps a small percentage of ...

Light Up
The picture below shows the B6308 from the Hat and Feather into Medomsley in 2009. This is the same road last Summer (2016). Can you spot the difference? It's not the weather, it's not the car, it's the street lights... Have you ever missed a meeting and th...

Autumn Statement
Before the general election, in order to prepare for hustings, TV and radio interviews and questions from the public, I studied every Labour policy announcement between 2013 and 2015 in some detail. The policies were mostly sound, sensible ideas but were ei...

A call for Unity
The few Labour MPs who have resigned from shadow posts probably think they have the best interests of our Party at heart. I don't agree with their actions but neither do I question their motives. They really think they are doing what's best. It is ironic th...

A feeling about the EU
