I would very much like the government to stop caring for me through the replacement of Trident and supporting a first strike nuclear option. I would like them to stop pouring their concern and consideration on me through austerity and cuts to front line services and privatising my health care. I would also like them […]

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,500 Saturday 23 July 2016. Dear Mrs May, I know it has got many MP’s not just stumped, but, I think, frightened… people have discovered, or rediscovered, democracy.

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,364 Monday 07 March 2016. Dear Mr Cameron, How is it, I wonder, that all the wealth of the nation, the media and government and business and financial markets, extremes of wealth, can just roll on as usual but we cannot reduce poverty and help the poor […]

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,194 Saturday 05 September 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, The refugee situation. Well, that sure made the headlines eh?

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,192 Thursday 03 September 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, You must be enjoying the spectacle of Labour tearing itself apart immensely.
