I SEE that my local MP Justin Tomlinson has been confirmed as a member of the support team at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Going by his recent support for stag hunting, hare coursing and fox hunting it is difficult to see what he can bring to this role. Definitely no culture there but perhaps he will promote some other history book so-called sports like jousting and bear baiting.
