Hillsborough Debate

Today parliament debates the death of 96 people and the sad reality that some could have been saved if people on the ground had reacted in a different way. Hindsight is always 100 percent clear, and lessons have clearly been learnt, but really proud that it is this government that is confronting our problems from the past and bringing justice to the families who lost so much, and who only want to know the facts and see justice.
I have been so impressed by the team at the Home Office. Whether it was last weeks announcements on the European Arrest Warrant or Gary McKinnon,  or the fact that crime is coming down, or today's debate on Hillsborough, there is a real sense of purpose from the Home Secretary downwards.
It is only week 2 I accept, but finding my new role fascinating.
