With a vaccine giving hope of some sort of normality in the Spring, 2021 promises to be a year for big decisions

How we pay for the pandemic, how we address the growing climate emergency, what we do to make our society fairer to address some of the poverty and inequality laid bare by the pandemic, how we stop the UK splitting up as a consequence of the Brexit decisions; the list goes on.

For good measure we also have the County Council elections in May which gives a chance to send a clear message about local democracy, something the Conservative government has tried to ignore and undermine during the pandemic

Whatever your political persuasion the past year has not been great for confidence in a government which regularly lies to the British people, acts late when confronted by big decisions and is populated by generally mediocre politicians of doubtful competence

So 2021 promises to be an important year politically. It also offers the exciting possibility to get back to some form of normality, to hug friends and family, to head to the sun , to do those simple social things we have all missed so much.

Happy New Year!!
