After the general election, it was announced that the trans-Pennine high speed rail route would be paused. This delays, perhaps indefinitely, the creation of the Northern Powerhouse. Such an announcement, within weeks of a Queen's speech in which the Powerhouse received some prominence, is, at best, unfortunate.
We have come a long way. Mental and physical health conditions are now given equal priority in law, we've increased funding, we're tackling stigma and I will continue to hold the NHS to account to make sure that mental health and physical health conditions are given equal priority.
We're 100 days into a Tory government and, let's be honest, they have been fairly clear on what they're about. Unfortunately, for the majority of us across the UK - those of us who didn't vote Tory - it doesn't look pretty. A clear course has been set that puts the interests of the haves over the have nots, dismisses issues like the environment and migration as someone else's problem and enthusiastically paints the UK as an increasingly insular, ungenerous country ill-fit and unwilling to play its part in Europe. The penny is well and truly dropping on how hard Lib Dems fought in government - and how much of a difference we actually made over the last five years.
I'm proud of what we've achieved over the past 100 days, building on major reforms to improve child protection and support for children in care. But this is no time to rest on our laurels - it's very much a beginning. After all, this isn't just about the changes we can make in a given number of days, it's about making changes that will have a positive effect for years to come...
With the deadline for Labour leadership voters to register having now passed and ballots almost ready to be issued, the only question left is who the winner will be, and whether this will be former outsider Jeremy Corbyn. If he does win it will be bad not just for Labour, but for democracy as a whole.
So often we choose to ignore the basic "rule of thumb" that, when two peas come out of the same pod, it's a rare instance when those two peas don't share 80% of the others' characteristics.
If the prime minister wishes to repair a reputation he once valued as an environmentally conscious moderniser and ensure he has a credible platform to speak from at this December's Paris Climate Summit he needs to use the next 100 days to prove the husky is alive and well.
With near record employment in this country, and long term unemployment at its lowest level since 2009, there are more opportunities than ever for people to make the move from benefits to work, and that is why we must continue to press ahead with our reforms. We're building a welfare state that is finally fit for purpose. A system that supports people when they need it, but doesn't trap them into a life on benefits. A system that rewards work, instead of dependency. This is what this one nation Government is delivering.
While we've achieved a huge amount over the past 100 days, there's still a lot of work to be done. And I'm committed to putting in that work so we can make changes that help hard working families for years to come.
I'm one the infiltrators. I'm a new member. I'm one the reasons Labour must apparently halt this election and stop the insanity. I'm not an entryist, but I support Jeremy Corbyn. To the right wing of the Labour Party, it's basically the same thing.
If Cameron, on the other hand, can focus on improving the EU for everyone, whether in Western or Central Europe, he may be able to get the support he needs from Warsaw, no matter which party forms the next government.
The 2015 Conservative Party manifesto promised to 'back British business' and make Britain 'the best place to do business in Europe' but since being elected in May this has not been the type of Conservative Government that business thought it would be getting.
Corbyn will ironically restore Labour's chances of winning by 2025 if not sooner. How soon will depend on how dexterous he is playing the great British political game, predictable but not certain.
Based on the majority of Tory initiated housing policies to date, we might be forgiven for assuming that in their minds, private renters are a homogenous group of middle class, young professionals who just can't quite scrape together the requisite deposit for their own home.
The government would be wise to remember that most parents want good local schools, with good teaching, behavior and leadership, a safe well functioning environment and a curriculum in which every child can flourish and realize his or her talents.
Why Cameron should choose to spend political capital on trying to bring back a bloodsport when there are so many challenges at home and abroad is more puzzling. Why seek to appease the small (but admittedly vocal) minority who want to chase wild mammals across the countryside for pleasure?
