Upbeat Tories

Guildford MP Anne Milton files in the small hours from Blackpool where she's found her colleagues in

1am, later than I intended but always the way it goes, just end up meeting loads of people you havent seen for ages. Fantastic atmosphere here with the mood being very up beat - a general election - just bring it on! Doing 2 fringes tomorrow on mental health and safety in the NHS - late for speech writing but the night is yet young for conference goers! Blackpool giving us a super welcome as ever and sea looks fab. Should be doing this blog tomorrow after NHS speech - everyone, particularly those working in health so angry about Gov interference. Good to be here and getting on with it - wonder how soundly Gordon is sleeping?

Anne Milton is MP for Guildford. She entered Parliament in 2005 having become involved in politics in the early nineties. Before that she worked as a nurse. She is married with four children.

The section on climate change has already disappeared from the White House website

As soon as Trump was president, the page on climate change started showing an error message.

Melting sea ice, sad photographs of polar bears, scientists' warnings on the Guardian homepage. . . these days, it's hard to avoid the question of climate change. This mole's anxiety levels are rising faster than the sea (and that, unfortunately, is saying something).

But there is one place you can go for a bit of respite: the White House website.

Now that Donald Trump is president of the United States, we can all scroll through the online home of the highest office in the land without any niggling worries about that troublesome old man-made existential threat. That's because the minute that Trump finished his inauguration speech, the White House website's page about climate change went offline.

Here's what the page looked like on January 1st:

And here's what it looks like now that Donald Trump is president:

The perfect summary of Trump's attitude to global warming.

Now, the only references to climate on the website is Trump's promise to repeal "burdensome regulations on our energy industry", such as, er. . . the Climate Action Plan.

This mole tries to avoid dramatics, but really: are we all doomed?

I'm a mole, innit.
