Trains, planes and automobiles - An update

Parliament was officially opened Wednesday.  By the time the County Times is published we will know the Bills the Government will bring forward over the next year.  However whatever the national agenda of the day its local issues that will dominate my diary. 

Westminster Update from Jeremy Quin

My 7 year old nephew was very excited by the election campaign “is it true” he asked “have the Conservatories won?”.  Not quite but it was certainly “conservatory” weather for the Horsham Hospital Fete on Saturday and a pleasure to meet Fete Chairman, Geoff Pearce and his volunteers who put on a great event.

Jeremy's first column in the County Times

Last Friday a thin strip of light stretched across the UK from points south to the most northerly tip of Scotland.  It had nothing to do with the climactic events of the previous night.  Instead those beacons, lit for “VE” Day, marked the sacrifices made by my grandparents’ generation.  It was what they did in defeating fascism that ensured we are still deciding our country’s future at the ballot box.
