My hope, is that my constituents will conclude that I have delivered on my promise to work hard for them and my City and that my colleagues in parliament, new and old, will understand in the next parliament, that backbench MPs can achieve good things - it's just that it takes so much time and energy!

Despite his protestations, ordinary Nige has been a part of the establishment most of his adult life. Will he be victorious in his bid to take working class voters with him and ensure that the 2015 election is as focused on immigration and the EU as it is on the economy and NHS?

And it marks 25 years of totally preventable pain, anguish and heartache for the families of the victims and the survivors of that fateful crush... As we gather at Anfield this afternoon for the 25th anniversary of the deaths of 96 of our own, we do so, for the first time, under the umbrella of a collective hope.
