One year ago today, I collapsed unconscious in the street yards from my office in Hastings. I remember walking along the road and not feeling well. I sat down in the doorway of a church to catch my breath. My next memory is of an out-of-body experience. I simultaneously looked down on myself as I lay on the ground, shouting and throwing my arms and legs around. I also remember being on the pavement, occupying my body, and experiencing this uncontrolled behaviour. At the Conquest Hospital in Hastings later that day, I was told I needed open-heart surgery at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton to replace a faulty heart valve I had from birth. I was in both hospitals for three weeks. Today, I have recovered, with many thanks to the strangers and NHS staff who saved my life and cared for me, but I have yet to return to the same energy levels I used to have. So, how do I recognise the first anniversary of a life-changing moment? I don’t know the answer to this question. And if I find out, I may let you know.

The Tories are a broken, bigoted, corrupt and nationalist party now. They’ve given up on any integrity they may once have had. They don’t even try to use their power for good. Just for themselves.
They will never have the courage to fix what they’ve broken. That’s down to us.
