Over the next 13 days, we will see how the DUP conversation affects the right wing of British politics in regards to how voters see the legitimacy of a future Conservative government after another general election and it's surely a line left wing parties will attack hard. This is Theresa May's Alamo and her garrison will have to be well armed to protect her mission.
Youth unemployment was also a big conversation point, especially in the West Midlands. The lack of high-quality jobs is a worry for them, young people do not necessarily want to move to London, they want the opportunity to stay in the area and add value to it. That has been a real backlash from young people and it's forcing the establishment to sit up and take notice.
UKIP have enjoyed moderate success in the West Midlands if you take into account finishing 3rd in almost all of the region's parliamentary constituencies in the 2015 General Election and making steady gains in last year's local elections.
Here in the West Midlands, we are about to embark on an election to vote our very first metropolitan mayor. Since it's costing us £4m, we thought we better ensure youth issues are represented in the debate by doing something about it ourselves, starting our own campaign which is organised by young people for young people.

You could argue that is already happening but it's as important as ever that we use the Brexit fallout as medium to have a long hard look in the mirror and constructively address the issues that divide us. Let's catch ourselves before it gets beyond hope and use Donald Trump as an example of what is not wanted here.
I will always be proud of where I come from, but I am not proud of the institutions that represent us as they have quite clearly failed us. In the process they have created a legacy that the people who live in our neighbourhoods will need to clean up.
Obviously there has been some resistance from Wolves fans which the club parried with a official statement defending the decision saying The Money Shop "are going above and beyond regulation in promoting financial transparency and the bigger main club sponsorship of Wolves gives them a significant media platform to champion this message."
It's over to you stakeholders of Birmingham, you have a huge cohort of young Brummies' chomping at the bit to create change, make sure you help develop these amazing people as these are the people who can and will make our country a better place to live in.
Yes the button has been pressed for the EU Referendum but the race is truly on for the next Leader of the party and I'm sure the Conservative Party membership shall be vigilantly watching their every move.
I looked in my freezer to see what I have, I bought a whole load of reduced mince beef for £4 a while ago, I just put separated it all and froze them separately, that will do! Ladies and gentlemen, in the spirit of the challenge I present to you my recipe for Black Country kebabs, with fried paprika onions and tomato salsa...
This week's Prime Ministers questions was marred with the usual inane rowdy rabble of mostly middle aged rich white men screaming at each other, barraging each other's inquires with the predictable vague circumlocution.
