When the most vulnerable in society are not being helped properly, we need to look at ourselves. Educating both staff and the public can begin to create change.
Not being able to blame Brussels for our problems nor look to the EU for solutions will be immensely reinvigorating.

George Freeman: We need a new Chairman and team at CCHQ to lead a radical programme of Conservative renewal
Let’s have Policy Board outside of the constraints of the Government machine – and a commission on what Britain should look like post-Brexit.
Lewis Baston: Disraeli’s “leap in the dark” towards modern democracy. 150 years on from the 1867 Reform Act.
Two cheers for a measure that, though mostly about managing, dividing and taming popular opinion, remains a reforming landmark.
