Rehman About Town!
If there’s one feature we’re asked to bring back more than any other, it’s our weekly roundup of everything and everyone the MP for Gillingham and Rainham has had his photograph taken with.
This week, Rehman has had his photo taken with the Singapore High Commissioner, people from his Conservative Association, Nick Robinson while appearing on Radio 4, a Pakistani cricketer, the Ambassador of Switzerland, residents and councillors in Wigmore, some folks from Arkansas, some students from Rainham Mark Grammar School, the Bishop of Rochester, the Oast House Christmas Bazaar, the Hempstead Village Fair, and residents in Rainham.

A lot of work goes into keeping The Political Medway running. We are a volunteer based, non-profit project, and yet we are still trying to produce daily content, cover council meetings as they happen, as well as provide as much information about elections as possible. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a small donation – one-off or monthly – via Ko-fi to help us cover our costs and keep this ridiculous project going.
