A new MP stunned Parliament with what has been described as an outstanding maiden speech. Kemi Badenoch passionately praised the Brexit decision when she said “I believe the vote for Brexit is the great ever vote of confidence in the UK!” So do I.
Kemi Badenoch, the new MP for Saffron Walden, was showered with praise by her colleagues when she said she had dreamed of being involved in a movement like Britain’s departure from the European Union since she was a young girl.

Trained therapist Claire Louise Leyland cared enough to volunteer and go to the Syrian/Turkish border to help distraught Syrian orphans. That alon gets her my vote.
