Millennials. Generation Y. Call us what you will, but those of us born in or just after the eighties, who were teenagers in the noughties and young adults in a post-recession UK, must be one of the central focuses for the new Prime Ministers #Brexit vision...
Let's accept that we are to leave the EU, but resolve to turn it to our advantage. For the sake of all those who despair for our future, it's time to look outwards and start negotiating those Free Trade Agreements. Even if we start this Autumn, I bet we can still wrap them up before a single one of those long-discussed, yet never ending 27 country EU Agreements kicks in.
An amalgam of rebellious Labour MPs and the Lib-Dems could be just that; an exciting new party which people can be optimistic about. It would unquestionably have a chance of success. The only thing currently standing in its way is the bravery of a few select individuals.
A good death - peaceful, dignified, reflective, compassionate, in the loving embrace of those closest to the dying person - is already a happy end for hundreds of thousands of people across our nation. In making this commitment, we make that promise universal, so that every dying person in England can live in anticipation of a good death.
The country, I firmly believe, needs a Labour Government and, if the leadership challenge does materialise as expected, every single member of the party needs to exercise their responsibility very carefully indeed. Do we want to be a protest movement that never looks beyond the outer ring or do we want to be a party in power where real changes to people's life can be made?
As the news is dominated by internal conflict within the Conservative Party, one thing becomes clear: no leadership candidate to be our next Prime Minister will be a champion of the North East of England. Indeed, we have barely even had lip service paid to the region, except for another commitment that the Northern Powerhouse will continue.
Like myself, Stephen Crabb was born and grew up in his constituency, which he won off Labour, holding the seat in subsequent elections. He knows what it is like to fight for something you want, when at times it seems hopelessly out of reach. He recognises that without understanding the concerns of voters on everyday issues in marginal seats, that once again the Conservative party could be out of power once again.
I know Stephen's got what it takes. He's capable, smart and trustworthy with common sense and great humour. He can engage people in politics again - which is urgently needed now considering that another divide in the referendum campaign was between politicians and people.
I find myself feeling in inconsolably sad. Not because the country has forgone both financial security and a place at the top table, for the comfort of home-grown xenophobia. But because last week saw one good friend and former flatmate, Michael Gove, fillet and broil another, Boris Johnson, and for what?
Making Britain a place that enables our young people to become the very best versions of themselves they can be isn't just about their success, it's about how we make sure we are successful as a nation. A big part of how we unite our country after the EU referendum must be an even stronger focus on opportunity. It's got to be a level playing field of opportunity for everyone - that's how we will deliver the country that Theresa May describes, one that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
As a parting aside, I definitely reckon I know who Michael "Tarzan" Heseltine will be backing to be the new leader of the Tories. It's got to be Theresa May, hasn't it? If for no other reason than those infamous African inspired Leopard print kitten heels of hers.
Stop flailing. Stop feeling impotent. Stop shouting into the echo chamber. I'm talking to myself of course, but I'm sure I've not been alone - hopelessly casting about, waiting someone to tell me exactly what I can do to make this better.
Michael doesn't let obstacles get in the way of his drive for improving the life chances and opportunities of those who are failed by government. He is demanding but, in my experience, incredibly loyal and supportive of his colleagues. He set a clear direction but gave me the freedom and autonomy to develop the agenda and shape legislation.
Explain why, Home Secretary, that when you make your constant references to police transgressions, you don't balance this by referring to the fact that the number of officers involved are but an infinitesimal speck when set against the tens of thousands of officers who have served or are serving since the 1980s?
The real immigration problem is not migration from the EU but from outside the EU, over which the UK has had complete control all along, but which has soared out of control nevertheless. How did this come about? And how can the problem be solved?
Back in the 1960s life moved at a more sedate pace. Arguing that political fortunes could change very quickly Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson pointed out that a week is a long time in politics. Well, move over granddad: these days we move far faster. Events move on in days, hours and sometimes minutes. We have entered an era when politics is at warp speed.
