Last week Philip Hammond presented this year’s Budget to the House of Commons. It’s one of biggest Parliamentary events of the year, and there were several important announcements which I know will be very welcome here in Solihull.
One of the things which has really struck me about politics is something I first learned as a journalist: how vitally important it is to translate abstract facts and statistics into meaningful stories.
I was very interested to learn last week that Transport for the West Midlands are bringing forward their plans to create a new, high-speed ‘Sprint’ bus route between Solihull, the city centre, and the airport.
One of the things at very heart of British democracy is our sense of fair play. Unlike elections in some other countries, such as the United States, we have always imposed reasonable limits on what campaigns can do and spend during elections.
