Rather a disappointing response from Ms Caulfield in her latest newsletter to the economic crisis and worsening industrial and international relations.
She focuses on extra assistance to women on HRT, extra assistance for mental health (no mention of what might be causing more mental health issues), her concern for winter pressures on the NHS, her attendance at a meeting about Eastbourne hospital, going for a drink at a reopened pub in chailey and a lovely picture of her selling cakes in Wivelsfield. She also mentions that the solar farm in Ringmer will be going ahead despite her opposition.
Well done Ms Caulfield.

I have to admire your resilience facing a newsletter by Mrs. C. Thanks for the report. I was hoping that she might have used it to declare her sympathy for Bridgen's stand against the party line or condemned Johnson's warmongering visit to Ukraine on behalf of the armaments industry. It's sad to see so many politicians with financial interests in weapons but I suppose it's inevitable.

I am not entirely sure if Johnsons visit was bought/paid for by the military industrial complex, i suspect on this occasion it was probably done as a PR stunt as he doesn't want to disappear from the spotlight and wants to go to a place where he is actually popular - war torn Ukraine.

Thank you Tom. I read it so you don't have to. Actually noone has to. I feel slightly sorry for her as she has to bring out these regular newsletters and there is very little good news for her to report.
It's interesting that she is focusing so hard on local issues but she is working hard to save her seat knowing there will be a huge backlash against the Tories at the next election. Norman tried the same thing by resigning from the government 2 years before the 2015 election in an attempt to distance himself from the government. It didn't work for him but she might still be re-elected as this is essentially a Tory constituency and the lib Dems interregnum was just a temporary phenomenon caused by exceptional circumstances. I doubt whether her newsletter which generally goes to her supporters will make any difference at all.
I'm afraid that the arms business is quite important to the UK economy Tom and I still think Johnson may well be back green. Mid way through 2024 it is quite possible that enough Tory MPs will think he is their only chance of keeping their seats and bring him back. Amazingly he does still seem to be personally popular.

I can see a hit TV series possibility "Ms Caulfield Writes" here. Part time MP, NHS angel, and author Maria solves heinous crimes whilst skillfully juggling her family and multiple career duties with unerring aplomb and never a hair out of place.
