iPhone : Damilola Taylor's murder was a defining moment for our country.
Damilola's family and the DamilolaTaylorTrust have been an inspiration, showing such courage in making a heartbreaking tragedy a catalyst for change. They have saved countless lives in hugely challenging circumstances. twitter.com/dttlondon/stat…

iPhone : “We were too slow into lockdown, too hasty to withdraw vital support from businesses and workers, and the Chancellor's had to rip up his winter economy plan four times before winter has even started.” - Anneliese Dodds mirror.co.uk/news/politics/…

iPhone : International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women is a powerful and sobering reminder that everyone has a role in standing up against these appalling crimes. I'm committed to doing my all with The Labour Party to tackle gender-based violence #16days #WhiteRibbonDay twitter.com/uklabour/statu…

iPhone : Worrying #SpendingReview: U.K. Government allocates almost 50% less funding for 6000 police officers promised to recruit this year, compared to last.

This could make the cash crisis police are facing even worse and keep officers off the beat, as police staff are cut.

iPhone : This will be crushing for police officers and staff. They have been heroic at the frontline of addressing the #Covid crisis. They have been rewarded with a pay freeze. Irresponsible. Unacceptable. Wrong. twitter.com/PFEW_HQ/status…

iPhone : Many thanks to Shadow Home Secretary Nick Thomas-Symonds Nick Thomas-Symonds MP for taking the time to speak this morning. A really productive meeting and great to have Labour’s full backing for our #FreedomFromFear campaign to end violence and abuse of retail workers. twitter.com/NickTorfaen/st…

iPhone : “The Chancellor just said our economic emergency has just begun. Try telling that to people who have been out of work since March.” Anneliese Dodds challenging the Chancellor on the yawning gaps in U.K. Government support for people during the pandemic #SpendingReview

iPhone : "The UK Government must do more to provide the sustainable support these vital services need. It is crucial that if someone is able to take the step of reaching out for help, they are not turned away.” Nick Thomas-Symonds MP #16Days

iPhone : The PM’s failure to keep his promise in the Ministerial Code’s Foreword that there shall be no bullying is exposed by Keir Starmer-the PM’s decision not to sack the Home Secretary was a total failure of leadership and sent out a terrible signal about tolerating bullying #PMQs

iPhone : .Keir Starmer opens #PMQs by highlighting that today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and that we have much more to do to address domestic abuse which has risen during the #Covid crisis and should be an urgent priority for the Prime Minister

iPhone : .EHRC findings that Government broke the law in its treatment of the Windrush generation are shameful.

Yet they still haven’t got the message - the Windrush compensation scheme is an offensive mess, prolonging injustice.

This can’t go on!

iPhone : Our key workers have been on the frontline against coronavirus.

We can't let the Conservatives freeze their pay.
