THE Prime Minister’s self-imposed deadline to secure a trade deal with Europe has come and gone.
Sir, A fundamental change is needed in the University system. COVID isn’t the cause but it has exposed existing faults in thinking. Currently uni is extremely expensive not least because of accommodation fees. We need to separate the social finishing school/ marriage and networking functions of uni from those of gaining academic knowledge. Currently and […]
LAST Monday, the Agriculture Bill is set to return to the Commons, for voting on the Lords’ amendments. These amendments to the Bill have been put in by the Lords,

I WAS into soul music and around that time, Eddie Floyd had a hit with “Knock on Wood”. I must have only registered the word “Floyd”, so I set off on my scooter from Southampton to the Birdcage expecting to see E.F. and was disappointed to see Pink Floyd.
THE last six months have been unprecedented for our community and so many residents and businesses have faced unimaginable hardship.
DURING these uncertain times, many businesses have chosen to invest in their digital presence;
I RARELY DO opinion pieces. I am too busy publishing the day to day chronicles of life in Harlow but I thought it was important to find time, on National Police Memorial Day, to publish a few words on the police.
From Toddbrook councillor, Frances Mason TODAY, there is a national outcry about Covid-19 lockdown rules imposed on young students, after a number of outbreaks in University campuses in England and Scotland. This has had a devastating effect on students, many of whom have left home for the first time as well as a worrying time […]
Sir, Looks like the Tories ‘oven ready’ Brexit deal is still frozen AS the Brexit Party’s Parliamentary Candidate for Harlow I campaigned vigorously against the Withdrawal Agreement (WA). It is fundamentally flawed because it annexes Northern Ireland by moving the Irish Border in to the Irish Sea. This is something that Theresa May said she […]
YOUR report of the question about Church Langley at Thursday’s council meeting is incomplete, as will be evident to viewers of the YouTube video.
Letter to Editor: Serious cuts to school budgets were planned long before 2017 election and those cuts are having consequences.
THE extent of school funding cuts across the country, as revealed in the Times Educational Supplement should come as no surprise to anyone.
MY mum suffers with severe COPD and started to get covid symptoms on Tuesday 15/09/2020 morning.
THE LEADER of the Harlow Conservatives has written a letter to YH over Harlow Labour’s action on travellers since the town wide injunction lapsed. Sir, In July, I wrote to your newspaper following the decision of Harlow’s Labour Council not to attempt to try and renew the injunction Harlow had been granted to stop unauthorised […]
Sir, I AM deeply concerned by the government’s plan to break promises made in the Withdrawal Agreement; an international treaty signed less than a year ago. The Northern Ireland Secretary admitted this would break international law. The Internal Markets Bill would renege on commitments to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland and […]
I WRITE this letter on behalf of the hard working taxpayers in this country. Oh no, wait, I don’t as that would be presumptuous and inaccurate. The only person I can legitimately speak for is myself.

Dear Editor, I currently manage a football team called Changing Lives FC made of migrant and refugees boys. This is part of the programme under Changing Lives in Harlow CIC. I’ve recently come under lots of criticism regarding supporting migrants from my RT Interview I done last week. I would just like to say, we […]
Dear Editor, It can be a daunting prospect to talk to our children about sexual abuse. It isn’t as straightforward as talking to them about crossing roads or dealing with strangers. But whilst we all hope that our children will never be a victim of such atrocities, we know that sexual abuse does happen. Police […]
I AM writing in solidarity with all of those A-Level students who have had their results downgraded as a result of the Conservative Government’s cruel algorithm.
WITH the current uncertainties occurring, the pressures of our daily lives and all the negativity in the national media, it’s important to take a step back and breathe.
I STOOD ready to get on my soap box about the governments handling of A-level and BTEC results when I received the results my A level groups got and was quietly pleased, with very little difference between the results I predicted and the results students were allocated.
IT is rather ironic that our MP is objecting to the closure of London Road to car users whilst at the same time has been the champion of an enlarged Harlow, which in reality for the most part is just building thousands of homes on the Green Belt surrounding Harlow’s boundaries.
