This serves to demonstrate that the Conservatives have no empathy with the ordinary people of this country, who are struggling to get by because of [...]
On Wednesday 5 March 2014, I presented a petition to Parliament from my constituents, concerned about the overcrowding on our trains. As someone who uses the train network regularly, I agree entirely with this petition; our train carriages are overcrowded and we need more rolling stock, not less. First Trans Pennine Express, our local train [...]
I was delighted to present the prizes for the Junior Chess Tournament at Kearsley West Primary School on 13 February 2014. It was wonderful to see the children devote their time to such a challenging and stimulating activity, especially with over 50 children taking part. Chess is not only a good hobby; it is also [...]
