EU Drama plays out in Parliament

It’s been another tumultuous week in Parliament. Last week, the Prime Minister published the draft EU Withdrawal Agreement. Over 585 pages, this document sets out how the UK will leave the European Union. It was accompanied by a shorter document, which sets out how we hope to form a new trading and relationship accord with the EU once we leave. Difficult provisions in the first agreement, are meant to be solved in the second. However, this gap in timing in the two agreements is causing some to become anxious that we will not leave the EU entirely in March next year if we have not nailed our future terms and dates.

Remembering their sacrifice 100 years on

This weekend is Remembrance Sunday, and it is a particularly special one as we celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War 1. On this day, we commemorate the brave soldiers who fought for our country in the First World War, and particularly those who lost their lives.

Great people work without political borders

This week I want to start my article by paying tribute to Cllr Stuart Earl. His sad passing leaves a huge hole in the many organisations and causes he worked for so tirelessly. It also robs us of a friend and colleague who dedicated his life to civic duty in his community.
