About

Hello and welcome to my website. I have always been interested in current affairs and politics and this website will contain my comments and observations from watching a lot of Parliament TV and keeping up to date with the issues being discussed. I know politics frustrates people but I find the issues very interesting and the personalities too.

I worked for an MP for 7 years as her Senior Case and Press Officer, so I understand about what being an MP is and how politics works for individuals. I also see the bizarre presumptions made by members themselves and the public about what they actually do. For many it’s a vocation, for others it’s self-progression and for most it’s both. I hope my articles offer something interesting. I’ll make sure they do.

Thanks for passing by and I hope I give you reason to return.

Durham County Council

In May 2017 I was elected to Durham County Council to serve as the Labour councillor for Delves Lane for a period of four years.

My current roles within the council have been confirmed as:

* Vice Chair of the Economy and Enterprise Overview and Scrutiny Committee.
* Member of the Overview and Scrutiny Management Board.
* Member of the Statutory General Licensing Committee.
* Member of the Standards Committee.
* Member of the Appeals and Complaints Regulatory Committee.
* Substitute Member for the North East Combined Authority (NECA) Overview & Scrutiny Committee.

If any member of the Delves Lane division, which is Crookhall, Consett East, Templetown, Delves Lane and Knitsley, finds this website and needs to get in touch, contact either myself or my fellow Delves Lane councillor Jane Brown by emailing malcolm.clarke [@] durham.gov.uk and jane.brown [@] durham.gov.uk

All views expressed on this website are strictly my own and should not be confused or alleged to be the stated view of Durham County Council.
