A man speaks to a room of people - Nick Brown MP

I’m an unlikely defender of today’s politicians. Maybe I’m over cynical, but I just don’t always get that sense that we are facing up to the long term challenges.

Airport capacity is something of a bet noir for me as I regularly shuttle around visiting London for meetings or to see colleagues. Instead of the national interest we’ve had endless delays and political positioning ahead of much needed decision on Heathrow. It’s just one example I know but somehow it’s emblematic of the wider lack of strategic grip.
