Rt Hon Malcolm Bruce MP

Nick Clegg MP says:

Nick Clegg

"I want to know what Malcolm's diet is because he clearly eats or drinks something that keeps him forever young. He is one of the most energetic MPs in the House of Commons today much as he was when he entered the Commons 25 years ago. It is amazing to see him run circles around MPs half his age in his tireless dedication to his constituents. He really is an institution in his own right in his own constituency but also in Westminster, as a chairman of a very important select committee. He is widely respected across party boundaries. I wonder whether his constituents realise how lucky they are to have someone who is not just a good constituency MP but someone who is really respected in Westminster. Westminster is a rough and rowdy place. There are not that many MPs - and Malcolm can count himself amongst them - who are listened to respectfully by all parties."

    Posties are Royal Mail's greatest asset

    Another Christmas is over. Another year has begun. I visited several Royal Mail sorting offices as I do every Christmas. The posties do a job we all appreciate and should not take for granted. What is clear to me is that the Royal Mail's greatest asset is the men and women who deliver letters and packages the last mile to our door.
