    Election fever hits London

    As we go into the third week of the election campaign, Mark has been overwhelmed by the fantastically positive response he has received across the constituency when talking to voters on the doorstep, in local pubs, at community meetings and on street stalls. He is out and about every morning, afternoon and evening in the constituency and hopes to see as many residents as possible. However, if you do not manage to see him to chat personally, you might wish to catch him at one of the following:...

    Soho People

    Mark was asked by local website, Soho People, to answer ten questions. Here are his answers:-

    Housing

    With the sheer wealth of excitement and opportunities central London offers, people gravitate to our city centre constituency both from across the country and the globe. This can place a massive burden on our precious social housing stock which is why, over my past nine years of serving as your local MP, housing has remained one of the biggest issues in my postbag....

    Transport

    As we Londoners know all too well, a delayed train journey, traffic jams on the roads or disrupted flights have the power to ruin our day and grind away at our general quality of life. Yet transport has remained a Cinderella area for too long....

    Health

    We as City of London and Westminster residents are right to demand the very best of the NHS, given the huge sums of taxpayers’ money it consumes each year (more than the schools, defence and policing budgets combined).

    Education

    For many years, the government has assumed that tinkering with the structure of our education system leads to an almost automatic improvement in standards.

    The campaign begins!

    Parliament officially dissolved on Monday, firing the starting gun for the run up to May 6 when the country will go to the polling booths to decide our next government. This means that Mark has gone from being the MP for the Cities of London and Westminster to the Conservative Candidate for the constituency.

    Winning the Battle of Ideas

    In the weeks ahead we can be sure that commentators will be ever eager to draw comparisons between today’s domestic political scene and that of 1979 when the Conservatives were last swept to office. ...

    Warnings for the Road Ahead

    Now that the dust has settled on a highly political Budget, it has become ever clearer that our nation desperately requires strong Conservative governance to put our national finances back in order. Whatever the remedies within our reach should we secure office at the imminent election, we will also have to keep a close watch on events in the global economy which will surely have a significant bearing on the British economy in the years to come...

    The next, next big political scandal

    I guess even David Cameron must have been surprised how quickly his prescient warnings last month of the impending scandal over lobbying came to pass. Our national campaign rightly identifies that the UK’s broken politics requires urgent repair. Which is why I believe it is now imperative that Conservatives turn their attention to reform of and appointment to the House of Lords....
