A century ago today the battlefields of Europe were still ablaze with a bloody conflict that engulfed the whole world. Around the Belgian town of Ypres the brutal Battle of Passchendaele was still grinding onwards – an offensive that would see over half-a-million casualties on both sides.
This is my first column since the General Election and I would like to use the opportunity to thank all those residents who put their trust in me to continue representing the constituency in Westminster.
Many residents have contacted me following last week’s Supreme Court ruling that Parliament must vote before the Government invokes Article 50 to commence our exit negotiations from the European Union. They have asked how I intend to vote when this comes before MPs in the next few weeks.
