My Nephew Lewis and his Baby Daughter Teagan

Off message but love this picture from today of East Ham born Lewis and his beautiful 2 month daughter, Teagan. Lewis and his partner Felicity, had to go through the drama of childbirth and then soon after moving into their new home in Witham, Essex.

I won't make cheap political points about the really difficult time this young couple had getting a home to bring up their baby.

They have made it, but it is still very scary with a big mortgage debt and uncertainty over future interest rates.

To me, the right to adequate housing is a fundamental political issue and while I am so happy that Lewis, Felicity and Teagan now have a home - so many others in similar circumstances - don't.
