Post referendum reflection

I’ve avoided writing anything for a couple of weeks as the seismic rumble of the political landscape moved beneath my feet. Coming to terms with the decision in the referendum has been very hard. Radio 4 had a fantastic programme about bereavement this week and how as a way to protect ourselves we imagine we […]

In memory of Jo Cox MP

Here is to the life of Jo Cox. A woman who died far too young, a woman who had plans to change Britain and a woman who was a daughter, wife and mother to a heartbroken family.   We are all poorer by her loss.   DG  

South Cambs is stronger in the EU

I met up with Heidi Allen MP, Simon Saggers and Sebastian Kindersley my co-candidates in the general election last year. We decided to get together to discuss why we all believe South Cambs and the UK is stronger if it remains within the EU. I  have included the video we made and a photo.

Happy birthday your Majesty. A historic time for our nation and the largest media story for the tail end of last week. So it is of no surprise to see that the government has been revealing it’s less popular news while the public eye was distracted by the Queen. The Mirror provided this story – […]

Vote Leave lies (sigh)
