Prime Minister David Cameron
David Cameron has made treaty change the totemic issue in his quest to renegotiate the UK's relationship with the European Union: he believes that he must have it to convince his party that the EU has been reformed. But he is engaged in two negotiations - one with his own party and eurosceptic press, and the other with the rest of the EU.
Whilst in the south of France this week I have been reading French and German perspectives regarding the forthcoming EU referendum in the United Kingdom.
Most childcare professionals support the plans to increased early education for all three and four year olds. They know it will do a lot to help families manage the cost of childcare. So we want to work with government to make sure that significant new investment delivers high quality places for our young children.

Politics of fear and hate cannot survive long in the hearts of those who have love and hope. Do not let this election divide and conquer. Unite and survive.

n the Joel Schumacher classic, Falling Down, William Foster, played by Michael Douglas, passes a man protesting the fact he has been categorised as "not economically viable". Swathes of British society have been categorised in this way by the Conservatives and they are slowly being ground into the dirt. And now they might end up in court faced with the prospect of a crippling bill for simply exercising their ancient right to plead innocent.
A major part of the Conservative's election campaign has been to question whether Ed Miliband is up to the job. But what about David Cameron?
