Dear Sir Has Jeremy Corbyn really thought through Labour’s plan for a £10/hour minimum wage for under-18s? Under such a policy, when I was a teenager I might never have been able to get a part-time or summer job – or develop a much-needed work ethic for later life. Selling our young people a pipe […]

Dear Editor, The result of the local elections has been a real wake-up call for the Conservatives and Labour and brought home to them just what a terrible mess they have made of Brexit. Voters, as expected, used them to demonstrate their anger and disappointment. Votes for independent and minor party candidates, people staying at […]

As an MEP, over the last year it has become abundantly clear that from the European Parliament I will be unable to make any meaningful difference to the Brexit cause. I’ve been grateful for the opportunity to put my points across to […]

As a former teacher, I used to know the GCSE syllabus inside-out. Every couple of years, some bright-spark politician would change everything – teachers had to attempt to become experts in a new specification or a new syllabus. I can’t recommend teaching as a career choice at present: too much paperwork, too much bureaucracy, fear […]
