    Our country did it again. We turned out at 8pm on Thursday, 2nd April, to clap, cheer and make lots of noise for our wonderful NHS and front-line staff. The sounds of clapping, cheering, banging pots and pans, sirens and horns echoed throughout London and the rest of the country. Again, the same as last week, it reduced me to tears. It was heartwarming seeing people come out and support those who go above and beyond to save lives every day.

    Yesterday, I was incredibly moved when I stepped out onto my balcony and found myself surrounded by people clapping, banging pots and pans, and applauding our fantastic front-line NHS staff.

    I am shocked to hear about the problems regarding refuse collection in St Katharine's and Wapping and across the borough. Residents are being let down by the Council's mismanagement of vital frontline services such as regular and reliable bin collections.

    Despite promises that the rubbish would be collected, it hasn't happened yet. We cannot risk another public health issue on top of the one we are already facing with the coronavirus pandemic.

    It's 2020 - a new year, a new decade. Once more, and I know it's already February, I feel the urge to reflect on the gains and losses of the general election last year and set out why I believe that there has never been a better time to be involved in politics.

    I think we can all agree: the general election result was disappointing. There is no way to spin it. We lost the election. We didn't win the argument, despite the largest national increase in vote share of any party. In Tom Brake, Chuka Umunna, Jane Dodds, Sam Gyimah, Luciana Berger and Jo Swinson, to name a few, we lost some skilled and hardworking local MPs, but that shouldn't deter us from moving forward and building a liberal movement to tackle the forces of nationalism and populism in this country when Labour fail to rise to the challenge.
