Life and faith is about more than entertainment and the survival of the fittest.

I’ve been watching the new Netflix series on the tale of Troy.

The Case for Military Action in Syria

The Syrian conflict has created the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Half the country’s pre-war population — more than 11 million people — have been killed or forced to flee their homes. I’ve seen the impact of it myself, standing 15km from the Syrian border in the world’s second largest refugee camp in Jordan with 100,000 displaced Syrians being supported by British aid.

Enjoying all that Bexhill and Battle has to offer over Easter

Easter is almost upon us. After a busy week debating Local Government finance, Police resources, Russia and where our passports are produced, Parliament has entered recess for two weeks. I will not be in need of a passport over Easter because I will be spending the bulk of my fortnight in the constituency and hoping that Spring will do as its name suggests and bring forth a burst of fine weather.

It’s snow way to run a democracy

I hope that all readers are keeping safe and warm during this period of cold weather. My late father was a devoted amateur weatherman. As my mother once said, ‘When I married your father, I married the weather.’ He would certainly have enjoyed this week.

Counting the cost of a working margin

Last week in Parliament, the focus from MPs was on the levels of central funding which will be given to our local councils and services. The current Government has made it an aim to see councils becoming self-sufficient. The ambition is for local councils to keep the money they raise from council tax and business rates and then decide how much to spend and raise via these forms of local taxation.

Bring Bayeux Tapestry to 1066 Country

This week saw the news that the Bayeux Tapestry could be coming to our shores. This, coming on the day when Prime Minister’s Questions took place, and a day before Theresa May was being visited by President Macron, I sensed the opportunity to try and put a bid in for the tapestry to be displayed at Battle.
