What a lovely, sunny November morning speaking to people in Oakley Vale. It was really great to be joined by Rory Palmer, our MEP, and Andy Furlong who had travelled from Leicester. Thanks All!

A big team out for our National Campaign Day in Raunds this morning. We covered about 1,200 houses and the sun shined! ‘Thank you’ to everyone who helped and to Jesters for the great coffee and food, as always!

The Tories are slashing funding to Northamptonshire police by £24.8m. When will they learn you can’t protect the public on the cheap?

Some people say politicians are all the same. I don’t think that’s the case in this constituency. The MP and I have very different views on major issues from fox hunting to the NHS and environmental protections.

It was really good to get out and about in Corby today. We had two fantastic campaign sessions where we had the pleasure of welcoming trade unionists from across the region and the brilliant Lilian Greenwood MP ✊ who joined us from her Nottingham South constituency.
We had lots of great conversations and lots of issues raised that we’ll try to take up

The bridge has just reopened and I am genuinely so, so, so pleased. This is really good news for people like me who use the bridge regularly and for local small business owners, who I’ve been supporting all year.

I am really disappointed that last night our MP voted to keep the impact assessment of Universal Credit, affecting 7,951 of his own constituents, a secret. He joined 298, mainly Conservative MPs, to win the vote by just 20.

Everyone deserves to feel safe in their homes and communities. It's something I feel really strongly about. Street Watch is 'a bit like Neighbourhood Watch but on legs.' It's groups of volunteers, passionate about their area supporting PCSOs and community officers. It's a community patrol initiative that helps you make a difference where you live, just walking around your neighbourhood, which can really help.

I was disappointed with our Prime Minister’s speech (and her dancing!) yesterday.
I am so pleased Corby’s Urgent Care Centre has been saved. It’s a credit to the work of the Action Group 🙌🏻 (Lyn, Maria and the gang) who I was proud to support in their Judicial Review.

Northants Council Councillors met today to decide whether to make a proposal to the Government for a new model of local government here and as a result the Tories in central and local government got the answer they wanted.

We had a special guest visit the constituency today, Jeremy Corbyn paid us a special visit, talk to representitives at both Tata Steel and Pen Green before meeting with members.

A big ‘well done’ to the Save Corby Urgent Care Centre Action Group who won their Judicial Review ensuring there will now be further consultation with the public before any changes are made to the walk-in centre.

The people of Corby have spoken and 95% said ‘no’ to Government plans to force us into a unitary authority.

Today is the last day of school before the summer break. Sadly, when many go back to school in September, they'll notice a difference, if they haven't already. In the years between 2015 - 2020, schools in this constituency will have lost £5.4 million.

Just 500 out of over 650,000 people in Northants are being proactively approached to take part in the official consultation on the future of local government here. That is less than 0.08%. That is not a proper consultation. That’s a tick-box exercise.
