In the late 1990s I ran the Parliamentary branch of the TGWU, which represented MP’s staff then. I also worked for two different MPs. During that time, I heard, and witnessed, countless tales of abuse of power, sexual harassment and sexual abuse, not to mention downright taking the piss out of poorly paid - sometimes unpaid, badly treated staff, who were grateful for the privilege of working there and had a contract written on the back of a cigarette packet.

The North of England has a proud history, with a cultural and industrial heritage second to none. Wool, cotton and silk are woven into the landscape of much of Yorkshire. The legacy of textile manufacturing can be easily seen in the grand factory buildings in many great northern towns and cities.



The heavy industries, including coal and steel, and textiles which dominated the region’s economy in the past, have given way to a new and exciting mix of engineering, business and retail, attracting start-ups and SMEs.

Worldwide, about 1.25 million people die from car accidents per year. Around 95% of these accidents are caused by human error. So, in theory, by automating driving, we could save about a million lives a year.




We could also see other benefits, including reduced congestion, journey times, CO2 emissions and noise, and increased mobility and independence for elderly people, and increased productivity during commuting times.

On 23 November, Chancellor Philip Hammond will deliver his first Autumn Statement, and the first major financial announcement since Theresa May came to power. Given the current political climate, uncertainty following the Brexit vote and the US election result, everyone will be looking for reassurance and stability.



Hammond has reportedly told colleagues that he would like to see the Autumn Statement effectively scrapped altogether in future, in favour of a return to ’fiscal forecasting’. According to the Financial Times, he added that he wished to move away from “gimmicks and micromanagement”.


It could also be his last for another reason.
