Welcome to President Obama

denver_convention_centreI was privileged to attend the Democratic Party Convention in Denver in August last year and see the adoption of Barack Obama and Joe Biden and today I joined a group of activists black and white in the Jubilee Room of the House of Commons to watch the inauguration ceremony and celebrate this historic day.

The expectations are massive and as I told Parliament last week President Obama is not a miracle worker but we must all give him our best wishes and support as he begins his extremely important and difficult job.
