STEPHEN LLOYD MP: I haven’t broken my promise over Brexit

It was another hectic few days in parliament this week and we had the first of what I suspect are going to be an awful lot of late votes over the next few years.

An invisible problem that some people struggle with is being deaf. Some people are born deaf and for others it can develop suddenly or slowly over time.

OUT IN THE FIELD: Conspiracy theories abound over toxic cloud

I know I won’t win any popularity prizes among residents living in the heart of Eastbourne town centre for saying it but I am glad the exotic dancing club in Pevensey Road has been given the go-ahead. I am the last person to want our town to become a mini-Brighton but I agree with town planners that the club is, to quote the planners, “likely to add diversity to the night time economy offering and support the vitality of the town centre”. When I had stopped chuckling at that particular remark and that no objections were received about the plan, I made a note to myself to enquire whether, in this day and age of political correctness and sexual equality, there will be male exotic dancers as well as female ones strutting their stuff when the doors open in October? I do hope so.
