A birth

Our second, Lucie, came along yesterday, 6lb 5oz, cute as a button despite currently looking like an old man. Over the moon, but terrified.

Well done! I suppose your better half had a role in it too, so well done she.

Top stuff James - heartiest congrats to you and yours!
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.
