BORIS JOHNSON - MP Uxbridge & South Ruislip
The former Mayor of London kept his job at the Foreign Office after the election. Despite hints from some of the newspapers that Boris Johnson, 52, seeks the top job, he has categorically dismissed such claims - presumably for now.
In the wake of June's shock election result, Mr Johnson said that while the public would be wondering about the future of the current government, Mrs May had got the biggest Conservative mandate anyone had achieved for decades.
Boris is quoted as saying: "I'm going to be backing her, and absolutely everybody I'm talking to is going to be backing her as well.
What we would like to know is where Mr Johnson stands on homelessness, affordable housing and climate change. As the former mayor of our capital that is congested beyond belief and smog laden at times, of all people, Boris should know that air quality is dependent on efficient transport networks. How about charging points for electric vehicles. What is the score on those?

We are concerned with how the make up of the above parties and (reasonably) popular policies may affect the Wealden district, because we are all brothers on two islands in the Atlantic Ocean and what we do or fail to do is likely to rebound on ourselves and our fellow man in other nations around the world. How we act today influences policies in other countries in our global community. It is not just about us and our patch.
East Sussex has five District and Borough Councils, each with a border on the coast. From west to east they are:
There is also East Sussex County Council as the provider of services to the 5 East Sussex districts.
As near neighbours and with councils now sharing facilities and working together, these area of Sussex are included in our remit and an area where climate change and affordable housing are issues that need urgent attention. Where the coastline is a feature in every Council, Blue Growth is a food security issue, especially where this side of of our local economy is under-exploited.
