Chris Grayling MP — Justice Secretary

    I used to be an avid watcher of autumn party conferences. I have now-days however only a perfunctory interest in the goings-on. I wonder why this is the case and I’m afraid the answer is that deep-down I can no longer be seduced by this sort of rhetoric. Perhaps, I’m just getting too old. I’ve decided I’ll not vote at the next general election.
