This should not happen if you have a guide dog

First published in Letters

I am writing because I am indignant that, in this day and age, and having owned a guide dog for 15 years I was refused entry into a local restaurant in my home town of Wallingford.

I arrived at 12.30pm with a friend and we were refused entry because of my guide dog.

Surely, in this day and age, this should not be allowed to happen.

Irresponsible to tell Parliament one thing then say something else locally

I find it somewhat sad that after nearly a third of a century of being the Member of Parliament for Banbury the worst the Banbury Labour Party can do to criticise me is to attack the school I went to.

A big thank you to all who helped find dog

On Monday evening I lost my black and white whippet on the top of Boars Hill. I was told by passers-by that she was heading down Hinksey Hill towards the A34. And she did indeed go on to the dual carriageway.
