General Election Hustings – 2019

General Election Hustings – 2019

For an election that nobody wants these hustings turned out to be strangely popular. The Labour Party, dumping Roger as our MP, and his decision to run as an independent candidate, had obviously got a lot of people convinced that this was going to be a lot more...

Roger Godsgift

The decision to ask Roger Godsiff, part time MP, full time rambunctious uncle, to open Birmingham Pride raised a few eyebrows (no pun intended). Roger's opposition to the same sex marriage had always led most of us to think that he is no fan of the gays. As it turns...
