I hear and understand the criticism of my uncompromising drive to improve veterans care in the U.K. But when I see heroes like this working every day with our most vulnerable veterans, it inspires me further.

Great to spend time with Battling On - A CIC based in Cornwall, UK and Active Plus today..👏

2Lt Max George was killed in a training accident this week. I pay tribute to him and his service to our Nation, and his time as President of Newcastle University Conservatives. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this awful time.

In better news, I have made sufficient progress with my neck to avoid the surgeons knife for now, and will be fully ‘back in’ after the weekend. Thanks for all the good wishes, and particularly to University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust for a brilliant service from brilliant people (again).

Huge congratulations to everyone who took part in another cracking Plymouth Half yesterday. First one I’ve missed in a bit, but hoping for good news this week to be back to full throttle 🫡

I watched this for a second time this evening after spending some time with Falklands vets this week.

In a society that sometimes seems not to grasp what it takes to fight war and win - I urge you to watch it. Our duty to men like these must be enduring. bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00…

Julian Thompson - Brigade Commander in the Falklands - addressing Parachute Regiment veterans today in Aldershot as they get together 40 years later.

“Time is not measured by the years that you live, but the deeds that you do” said someone once.. 🇬🇧

Some good weekend reading.

If you want to know what dealing with legacy is really like, rather than various groups campaigning against any end of their industry, read this. I support it wholeheartedly.

Brandon Lewis genuinely deserves huge credit. I hope he gets it.

I don’t get the anger.

While Macron urges concessions to 🇷🇺 for peace, & Ukraine fears softening of resolve in their existential fight for existence, the PM doubles down on his commitment to Ukraine.
Mad.

Most are proud of our role in 🇺🇦

Looks like the Med, but was in fact our City today, after a long sweat at work. Our Friday office swims getting better each week.

The best place to live, work and raise a family in the U.K.
