Welcome to my new page
Hello and welcome to my new page on the BBC News website.
From here in Yorkshire I follow the decision makers at Westminster and Whitehall, Strasbourg and Brussels, as well as all our local town halls.
My political reports and analysis appear regularly on Look North and Yorkshire's BBC Local Radio stations in Leeds, Sheffield and York. Most Sunday lunchtimes you can catch my roving reports for the regional edition of The Politics Show.
On this page I hope to take a deeper look at some of the political issues, events and occasional curiosities that come my way. You'll also be able to see and hear a selection of my latest reports.
Feel free to add your "two penn'orth" to the mix.
I look forward to seeing your comments and suggestions here.
