With freedom comes responsibility

Freedom is a poignant topic at the moment. We are seeing its fragility played out before our eyes in Ukraine. With that conflict we can also see the contradictions that go with preserving peace and democracy - notably, that to have them we must be willing to defend them.

All change in the City of London!

Ordinarily, the 25 Wards in The City elect an Alderman every six years. Usually, those elections are not all held at the same time - there’s balance.
