Post Image

Via Share The Facts: While Labour and the Lib Dems have confirmed they will raise taxes, we’re committed to cutting income tax and rewarding hard work.

Question to the PM on anti-terrorism


Yesterday the Prime Minister gave a statement to the House on the EU Council, Security and Middle East. I asked the following question; Steve Baker (Wycombe) (Con): I was appalled to learn that the British terrorist interviewed on “Newsnight” came from Wycombe.
