To be a Gentleman…

In this age of scandal and law suit; it was a revelation to see a young man on a recent question time asking a question about the way that MPs treat women. The 17 year old from the London Borough of Croydon is a credit to society and especially the male gender.

I was born in 1987 in Urban Nottingham and lived from Birth in the rural Derbyshire village of Sandiacre in the Borough of Erewash.

I was raised; along with my brother, to be a gentleman. I was taught manners from the beginning and the value of respect and authority.

I have often commented on the ideals of chivalry and how I personally will treat; not only the few women in my life but women in general in society. A little bit of respect costs nothing.

Sure I will treat EW to flowers every now and then for no reason other than to show my affection; but, the real affection for me comes out in how you treat a girl.

For example how many men will hold a door open for a girl? Or pull a chair out for them? How about walking road side of the pavement?

The young man I mentioned earlier asked; how does a 17 year old know more about having respect for women than the majority of MPs? Well for me; it’s not just MPs; it’s the modern society that we live in.

I challenge the younger generation of men to follow my lead and the lead of many great men such as Jacob Rees Mogg and learn how to treat a lady.


Aspiration and life

Anyone who knows me really well will appreciate that I hold family values very dear indeed. I have often said that the biggest aspiration that any man can have is to own his own home and as a Conservative and a Thatcherite at that, obviously I am proud of the work that the Conservative Party have done to make that aspiration a reality for so many.

As a Conservative; I believe whole heartedly in the virtues of family and the values that go along with it.

For me; home ownership and family are synonymous. Though obviously it would be wrong to assume that the home has to be owned by the occupant for it to be a family home.

We spend so long in this day and age focusing on money and material possessions but the aspirations of having a family extend far beyond materialistic value and monetary matters. That said; I have spent my life being overly career focused; very much married to the job.

As a Christian and an aspiring family man I was over the moon when somebody who I had admired for a while showed me that the feeling was reciprocated. I had been somewhat alone for a long time and whilst my political career is greatly fulfilling; I needed to share my experiences with someone. I have great political aspirations but also have aspirations of being a family man too. Both things are pretty well linked from my point of view.

The lady in question shared my aspirations and family values whilst forging a career of her own.

I will refer to her only as EW in my future posts.
