Post-Brexit Calm


The EU referendum was fiercely contested and some (nearly half) are not happy with the result. However, the debate and the vote cannot be allowed to be used as an excuse for abusive, intolerant and racist behaviour.This country welcomes immigrants, I welcome immigrants that come here to work, contribute and improve their lives and enrich [...]

It was a pleasure to welcome pupils from St Monica Primary School to Parliament yesterday. Thank you to Richard Waghorn Deputy Head Teacher for organising and accompanying the children.

The Future.


I have spent 20 years campaigning for a referendum on our relationship with the European Union. David Cameron was the only politician brave enough to give the voters that referendum.There was a long and robust debate.

A Conversation about the EU Referendum


In less than two weeks, we will be asked to make the most important political decision in a generation. The referendum on our membership of the European Union is even more important than a general election, because this question won't be asked again if we get it wrong. For that reason I think it is [...]
