    Putin is attempting to be the puppet master of the world, it is time we cut his strings.

    The UK must build a coalition of the willing, able to put an end to Putin's murderous adventurism, and show murder condoned or directed comes at a very heavy price.

    Putin is a bully who will not be put back in his box by entreaties from the Leader of the Opposition to have a chinwag over beer and sandwiches.

    The Spring Statement was a non-event.

    The OECD gave us the clearer picture - that the economy is bumping along the bottom of the G20, well behind the likes of Australia, Canada and the Euro area.

    The OBR's fresh forecasts are still a long way behind the figures estimated in March 2016 before the EU referendum.

    Ahead of the Chancellor's Spring Statement, I'm calling on the government to reverse cuts to the Universal Credit Work Allowance.

    The Treasury reduced the programme's funding by £3 billion annually after the Liberal Democrats left government in 2015, reducing the amount people can earn while on Universal Credit.

    As the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill returns to the House of Commons today, the Liberal Democrats have secured a significant victory following the government's acceptance of crucial amendments tabled by Liberal Democrats peers in the House of Lords.

    Led by Lord Sharkey, the Liberal Democrats campaigned in the House of Lords to end the scourge of cold-calling in relation to pensions, claims management and other financial services.

    We were asked on Wednesday evening at East Devon district council full council to vote on the budget for the coming year.

    Bearing in mind my last article on the subject in January, when the scrutiny and overview committees were left staring despondently at a full A4 page of "nice to have" items that would have been routinely the work of district council 20 years ago, but for which there is simply no money left at the end of the budget, I could not in all conscience vote for this budget.

    As Exeter's MP steps in (Echo 1/3/18) to explain the bus station issues, it poses fundamental questions. Where is Exeter Council Leader Pete Edwards? Why do half the voters in the city choose the Labour Party to run affairs when they are so obviously failing?
    If people oppose austerity, why do they vote for a Labour Party whose over-riding priority for over a decade has been to build a premium swimming pool? Is this what people in hardship are asking for?
