Published here is an article written by Mike Findley MBE about his experiences with Motor Neurone Disease.  He is a councillor on Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, and a former Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland.

He writes about the need for a change in the law which of course protects the vulnerable whilst allowing people of sound mind suffering from a terminal illness to die with dignity in the manner of their choosing. In fact Mr Findley himself might not have been covered by the Assisted Dying Bill I introduced in Parliament in 2015 – because sadly the loss of the use of his hands and arms and further paralysis from the neck down might prevent him from self-administering medication.  My thoughts are with this brave man.

Dear Members and Supporters,

Many members and supporters worked incredibly hard to win back Wolverhampton South West for Labour at the last General Election, for which I am extremely grateful.

As your Labour MP, I have observed with dismay the declining state of the Labour Party since the missed opportunity of May 2015.  Firstly there was the precipitate resignation of Ed Miliband.  Next there was the lacklustre 2015 leadership campaign, in which I nominated no candidate.  That led to the election of Jeremy Corbyn, which initially inspired so many in and around the Party.
