The Argus newspaper recently revealed that the private ambulance firm which provided such abysmal service that it was stripped of its four-year contract after seven months was paid more than it should have. I've been helping the drivers, their union the GMB and service users since the start of this debacle and now I'm more angry than ever.

...although I know for people who travel to work on our rail network it's not happy at all.

I've just got home after meeting commuters at Hove station with a group of Labour campaigners. Because today rail fares went up again by more than a hundred pounds for season tickets holders and we wanted to listen to them about their experiences.

Last week the team and I went out for a fantastic Christmas dinner in Hove. It was so lovely for me to have some downtime with the hardest working team I’ve ever come across. In the last month alone 248 people, almost ten a day, turned to us for help. There there are 1,856 people we are actively providing support to right now, and that’s the Hove side of things...believe me the team in parliament is equally busy on your behalf too!

Merry Christmas!

It's late again! I'm back in my office in parliament after a very long day, after a very long week, but it's worth it because tonight we defeated the government and the result will be more power to you as to how Brexit plays out.

Thanks to our local kids for getting us all into the Christmas spirit. Last week I went to the children’s carol concert at St Nicholas’ Church in Portslade which showcased the breathtaking talent of our local youngsters. They sang, played instruments, and those in the audience were perfectly behaved and having a great time.

In the recent budget we got no money for our schools except for 'A' level maths. In Brighton and Hove we've now lost 60% of our teaching assistants due to the cuts, and most schools are suffering the loss of specialist staff, teachers, and equipment.
