Friday round-up

Meeting constituents to go through their issues all morning at Wood Green library. It has had a makeover – and the room I hold my surgery in is now really great. It has armchairs and sofas, a new floor, table and the atmosphere is a million times more conducive to making people feel more comfortable. Before it was cluttered with tables and chairs of the very utilitarian variety.

Am still incandescent about our Government dropping the investigation into Saudi deal. With jobs and the future security of our nation given as the reason for the moral position holding no sway, it is depressing to find out we are as bad as everyone else.

Then, thank goodness (as by now I need to lighten up) it’s off to my staff Christmas lunch and we go to a Crouch End restaurant that I had never been to before – Aix. Fantastic meal – and the desert was to die for! I rarely eat desert – but Ed (in charge of running my constituency office and my diary) recommended ice cream with honeycomb – yum!
