Weekly Videos, Herald Column and Eco-Tips

On this page you can find my weekly column that I write for the Worthing Herald, with my reflections on the week's events in Westminster and in the constituency. I also film a video update from Westminster detailing the events of the week ahead, as well as reaction to any developments that have occured in the previous week. You can find all previous videos below, and please do continue to check my Facebook for the uploads every Monday:
