Funding the fight to stamp out extremism

The last three months have seen some of the worst and most appalling terror attacks our country has seen in decades - in Westminster, the Manchester Arena, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. These vile acts of terrorism represent the very worst of humanity as they seek to kill and horrifically injure innocent people, and spread fear, intolerance and hate among us.

Chaos in the UK is not a proving a pretty sight

If there is one thing we’ve always sought from our Governments in Britain it’s stability. Our uncodified constitution is rigged to give enormous power to parties often elected by just over a third of the popular vote, precisely because the system is more bothered about stability than representation. Yet, with the entire deck stacked in her favour Theresa May is unstable, the Conservatives are weak and they’re leading the country into chaos.

Working across divides is core to my work

I’ve been back at work locally and in Westminster following the General Election the other week – I’m honoured to have been re-elected as Member of Parliament for Crawley, and the issues which were raised with me on the doorstep were in my mind last Thursday when I took the oath of office.

Steps to prevent a major tower fire in Crawley

Like many others, I followed the events at Grenfell Tower last week with growing horror. It seems we’re confronted by such tragedies with increasing frequency. Whether that’s due to social media now bringing us directly into contact with events we’d have once only seen on the evening news, a growing empathy for our fellow humanity or a genuine reflection of increasing risks in modern life doesn’t matter, what matters is people died, others were injured and greater numbers left homeless.

On Thursday, we learnt the scale of Conservative’s poor judgement. At great cost, both in money and—with Brexit negotiation’s looming—time, the Conservatives have found that they have gambled with the country’s future and lost again.
