Welcome to my website! DW Picture

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. Since being elected as Bradford East's Lib Dem MP in May 2010, I have been kept busier than I ever believed possible. I've spoken to many constituents in my weekly surgeries - covering every possible subject, from apprenticeships to the Odeon cinema. I am grateful to everyone who voted for me in 2010 and I will continue to stand up for the hard-working people of Bradford in Parliament.

This website contains a lot more information about my work, both in Bradford and in Parliament, the campaigns I am involved in, as well as news from the Liberal Democrats across Bradford East.

    Whether you're watching Manchester City or the Bantams, there is spirit and passion about football that unites communities, even if it often divides families!

    Dear Editor,

    At a National Citizenship Scheme event I recentlt attended, I asked a group of Secondary pupils, who soon may be considering going to University, how many knew that they would not have to pay anything for tuition fees whilst they were studying at University.
