    Will The Olympic Logo Pass The Test Of Time?

    Ever since the 2012 London Olympic logo was unveiled at the beginning of June, my postbag has bulged with letters and emails from constituents. It will not come as a surprise to anyone, I reckon, that precisely none of this correspondence has come out in favour of the design that was unveiled with s…

    City Culture

    Last Bank Holiday weekend brought to my attention two distinct snapshots emphasizing the diversity, openness and health of the City of London’s financial services industry.

    The Problem With Grammar Schools

    At our best the Conservatives are the party of aspiration, opportunity and hope. We believe in choice because choice helps raise standards for all.

    The Blair Legacy

    How will history judge the decade-long premiership of Tony Blair? On the day before President Nixon was forced to resign in disgrace, his Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, tried to cheer him up by insisting that history would judge his presidency to be a success.  The embattled Nixon concluded g…

    Taking Crime Off London’s Streets

    With the recent news stories of youth murders in central London there has been much wringing of hands and posturing by politicians and so-called experts in youth, parental, drug and obesity matters on not only what is wrong but also the solution to the problem.  My view is that all the past pontif…

    Police Should Be Locally Accountable

    One of the many historical quirks of my Cities of London and Westminster constituency is its structure of policing. There are forty-three local police constabularies covering the whole of Britain, yet my smaller inner-city seat is served by two. Like many MPs I regularly receive complaints about pol…
