Successful towns need to move people around efficiently, moving workers from home to places of work at all hours; visitors to hospitals; patients to GPs; students to schools and colleges.

But the UK’s towns – many of them small towns, face different challenges from our big cities.

Read my article about why MPs should focus on securing a deal - not delaying our departure from the European Union.

It's now 946 days since the UK voted to leave the EU in the referendum, 723 days since Parliament overwhelmingly voted to trigger Article 50, and 596 days since both Labour and the Conservatives pledged to honour the referendum outcome at the general election. You would think all those decisions meant no MP could countenance Remain as a viable option. How wrong you would be.

At times of great crises, Parliament often comes together to reflect the nation’s interest.       

In 2018, the British people have witnessed bitterness, sniping and endless parliamentary manoeuvring.  Hardly parliament at its best.

Free_Press_article_030818_edited.JPGRead my article on the environment for the Doncaster Free Press below:

A letter in the Doncaster Free Press 26 July headed “Go for Green Way” caught my eye. It argued that you cannot support the environment if you back the Great Yorkshire Way link road or, on a larger scale, Heathrow expansion.
