Jo Cox MP – RIP

16 Jun , 2016  

On Thursday the whole country was shocked to hear of the brutal murder of Jo Cox MP for Batley and Spen. Personally I am still reeling. I met Jo in May 2015 when we both arrived as newly elected MPs to Westminster. Much has been said in the last twenty four hours about Jo's immense parliamentary potential and there can be no doubt that she had a great political future ahead of her because she was incredibly talented, hardworking and totally committed to serving her constituents and to working to make the world a fairer, more decent place.

Visit to the Pears National Centre for Autism Education

12 Jun , 2016  

Last Thursday I was invited to have a tour of the Pears National Centre for Autism Education and take part in a question and answer session with the school’s students and young people on the EU referendum and why young people should vote.

I found my visit interesting and enjoyable. On my tour I was given the opportunity to see first-hand the great work that the charity Ambitious About Autism undertakes at its school. I met a number of bright and engaging students who demonstrated that with the right support and learning environment children with autism can excel in education and employment.
