On friday night 110 local Conservatives held a dinner with Mrs May as the guest of honour.
It was a great evening out, thanks to the food and service at the Coppid Beech Hotel.
The Home Secretary gave a good speech explaining the actions taken at the time and in the aftermath of the looting in cities this summer. She said that the police decided to put enough officers onto the streets to tackle the problem, and decided to start arresting criminals as they were embarking on their crimes. In past situations the police have tended to make arrests after the event, following the study of CCTV fottage and other evidence. Once the police took this new approach, the looting was brought under control.
The Home Secretary assured us lessons had been learned from these events. Members present took the opportunity to put other worries to Mrs May.
