Aggressive begging has discouraged people from visiting the town centre. The Labour Council has failed to deal with the problem.
Nicky Morgan: Once again, we split over Europe. Once again, we undermine our leader. We Conservatives are set to repeat the same failed cycle. Will we never learn?
We are re-proving that ‘we learn from history that we do not learn from history’.
A customs union 2) Simon Clarke – As a convinced Brexiteer, and an optimist about Britain, I see that joining one would lock us into decline
We shouldn’t be glued as a vassal state to a declining European market.
James Frayne: Relations between businesses and politicians are made worse by the fact each misunderstand the other
It’s not just about Brexit – it’s deeper and longer-standing than that. Ironically, relations would improve if they each a bit more combative.
Nicky Morgan: If Cabinet Ministers aren’t prepared to listen to business, they should consider their position
Saying “f**k business” is the kind of lack of understanding I’d expect from our Marxist-sympathising Shadow Chancellor – not from a Conservative Foreign Secretary.
“I think there will be a good deal, but I can’t pretend that there is a deal now that’s in our back pocket and we’re just going through the motions.”

As well as its historic links to this country, the island offers a solution-solving attitude and solid work ethic.
The Conservatives: not the Party of “f*ck business”, but not the Party of blind obedience to big business, either
Prioritising large over small, or current businesses over future businesses, would hurt workers, consumers, taxpayers, investors and the nation.
Daniel Hannan: Higher taxes, spending bungs, pay caps, gender quotas. Is this really the brave new Brexit Britain we want?
What changed? When did we lose the global vocation that infused the Cabinet, Leavers and Remainers alike, two years ago?
Scott Kelly: Technical education is still too narrow, and flaws in the apprenticeship levy are hindering progress
The Government must act now, or risk a generation of school leavers missing out on the opportunity to acquire technical skills.
Lifting the arbitrary cap on skilled workers would allow British businesses to get the talent they need, when they need it.
Plus: The Government gets airports wrong and Burnham gets rail wrong. And: a miserable PMQs for Tory MPs.
