Missed the leadership debate - but any leader who can't be bothered turning up doesn't deserve to lead. I hope the nation has taken note!— Stephen Swann (@stephenjswann) May 31, 2017
Finally had a parliamentary candidate knock on my door and ask for my vote. @VoteGirvanX may not get it, but he asked & others haven't yet!— Stephen Swann (@stephenjswann) May 29, 2017
Watching the #Londonmarathon and feeling tired just watching these athletes. I can feel pain in my knees and I'm sitting down!— Stephen Swann (@stephenjswann) April 23, 2017
First one in to the office means I have control of the Sonos, right? No ballads, warbling or thump-thump stuff today - just proper music!— Stephen Swann (@stephenjswann) April 5, 2017

I've written an open letter... of sorts... not that it will have an impact... but I've done it nonetheless... http://bit.ly/2jQ34ks— Stephen Swann (@stephenjswann) January 22, 2017
"I have a strong belief that the politicians we elect have a duty to ensure that the government does everything it can to enable all citizens to be the very best that they can be, with access to services regardless of background, colour, religion (or lack thereof), gender, sexuality, intellect, etc., etc.
From a manifesto point of view, I struggle to understand why political parties can't state that their first duty is to ensure fairness for all. Seeing election posters and flyers with slogans and imagery that alienates large sections of the community seems incredible in the 21st century, but I don't see that changing any time soon as the politics of fear will dominate for some time to come.
When it comes to same-sex marriage, I struggle to understand the viewpoint of our politicians and I do not understand why fairness and equality does not apply in this case. While the rest of Western Europe is able to treat their citizens with the respect that everyone deserves, we in Northern Ireland are becoming an embarrassing anomaly.
My view is that if we (as a country) are capable of discriminating against those who want to marry their same-sex partner, then we set a precedent that discrimination is fine! But then again, that's what we do best in this part of the world, right?
For me, Equality and Fairness should always win the debate regardless of politicians' religious beliefs and regardless of how the friends and relatives of politicians can potentially benefit from any decision taken by the aforementioned politicians."
Must get motivated to booking my hotel for this week! I may find I have to crash on a colleague's sofa at this rate!— Stephen Swann (@stephenjswann) January 21, 2017
