Twitter Web App : Our thoughts and condolences are with the loved ones of firefighter and FBU member Alec Elwell, who passed away on 16 January after a short battle with covid-19.

Help us raise money in his memory by donating at the numbers below or via this link: lght.ly/dig39fi

iPhone : The Tories have made key workers and working class people bear the brunt of the pandemic, and they will continue to unless together we organise to stop them.

Tax the wealthy, support the unemployed and project jobs.

iPhone : The sheer volume of angry Fire Brigades Union members contacting me today angry at the hatchet job by HMICFRS shows that any shred of credibility the inspectors had has been totally lost. The Tory appointed inspectors will no doubt be dreaming of their expected Queen’s honours tonight.

Yesterday the NEC Organisation Committee approved a paper supposedly to ensure that only ‘High Quality Candidates’ are selected for local government and Parliamentary selections.

Twitter Web App : Between Covid, climate collapse, and recession 2021 is set to be a year of crisis.

Join Andrew Scattergood and others to discuss how the Labour Left should respond. Tomorrow, 2pm

Twitter Web App : This report is a rotten political attack on the FBU.

It complains that the FBU produced "unnecessarily detailed" safety measures, only to note – as if unrelatedly – that large staff outbreaks "didn't materialise".

Firefighters & the FBU have protected public health. Solidarity! twitter.com/fbunational/st…

Twitter Web App : Look, if there’s going to be one group of people I trust over the government, it’s firefighters.

The very people who selflessly put their lives on the line to help rescue people from fire and flood, are now being attacked by the Tory gov.

I stand with firefighters, always ✊ twitter.com/fbunational/st…

iPhone : Firefighters have stepped up at every stage of Covid and the FBU has been right there to ensure the work carried out was safe and appropriate. Now Tory hatchetmen are using the pandemic a cover to attack firefighters and their union. Utterly disgraceful. fbu.org.uk/news/2021/01/2…

iPhone : Firefighters and their union, the Fire Brigades Union, will face another stitch up tomorrow: 22 January.

The powers-that-be do not like us:

Because we stand up for ourselves;
Because we fight for safety in the workplace.

Hirelings do their bidding.

Watch this space.

iPhone : Weve set up more of these funds than we would ever want to have to in recent days. Never easy & always heart breaking. FBU members know funds will never replace a loved one, but help in some small way in a difficult time. Please support if you can:

iPhone : Unfortunately "claps", "back slaps" & "accolades" do not bring back loved ones.

But through adherence & promotion of core safety protocols, we could help slow viral spread & stop many preventable deaths. twitter.com/RiccardoLaT0rr…

Twitter Web App : This would be a real good time for the government to give firefighters a statutory duty to respond to flooding in England as they have in the rest of the UK.

Without it, there's no guarantee brigades will be properly prepared for events like this.
