Get well soon Malcolm

I have just got back from a week in India at my best friend's wedding (which explains the lack of posts over the last week) to find that my next door neighbour Croydon North MP Malcolm Wicks has been diagnosed with cancer.

Malcolm is a good local MP and a decent man. I didn't know him that well before I got elected but over the last year and a half I have often given him a lift home after a late night vote and we've got to know each other quite well. Whatever our party political differences, I have come to consider him as a friend.

My thoughts are with him and his family and I look forward to him making a full recovery.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
