Like all Londoners this week, I struggled to get around the city because of the total shut-down caused by the Tube strikes. I challenged the Deputy Mayor for Business about this at an Assembly meeting this week. His response was... less than helpful.

I was honoured to act as a judge in the Hounslow Regional Final of the Jack Petchey Trust's 'Speak Out' Challenge. The eloquence and passion on display from the young people who spoke was inspirational.
It was great to attend a meeting of the Seething Wells Action Group to hear local residents' ideas for how Surbiton's historic filter beds could be saved for the community. I was grateful for the opportunity to share my views.
Saturday afternoon was enjoyable, observing Exercise Heron, which was a joint London - Surrey fire exercise simulating a river rescue. We are well-served by our splendid Fire Brigade and the levels of professional expertise and know-how I saw on display were impressive. Thanks for the invitation!
I had great fun supporting our fantastic Conservative campaigners in Whitton, Chiswick and Bedfont.
