Last week we celebrated Parliament Week. One week in the year that we celebrate what is great about our democracy and our Parliament. This year is a particularly special one as we celebrate the 100 year anniversary of suffrage for women, and the achievements of women in Parliament ever since.
This Sunday we marked the 100th year anniversary of the end of the First World War. I marked the occasion by placing my wreath at the cenotaph along the Cliffs. Each time I do I reflect on the sacrifice made by so many so that we can all live the lives we have.
