'The Crack in Everything' came to @HouseofCommons tonight. Stories of children killed in the Troubles told by those who knew them. Thanks to @damienhasson for his powerful performance and for inviting me. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/jun/27/stories-of-children-killed-in-the-troubles-to-be-told-to-mps

We debated Hammersmith Bridge again in @HouseofCommons tonight. Change of tone from Govt. In place of 'not our problem' we had 'it's all going well'. Equally useless to those who want it fully open @PutneyFleur @sarahjolney1 https://hansard.parliament.uk/Commons/2022-06-28/debates/8F2E47FC-504E-4617-87EF-4521FEC21D20/HammersmithBridgeRestorationFunding#contribution-5C1F64DD-EDDB-46F1-9F77-C7C7DFEDA640

The Inspectorate is right to demand reform from the Metropolitan Police & to set higher standards for the new Commissioner - something that Labour, the Mayor of London & London residents have been calling for for some time.

Rape prosecutions are still at near record lows & court backlogs are still at near record highs.

Three years on from recognising their failure, the Tories haven’t done nearly enough.

Labour’s plan would drive up prosecutions & restore victims’ confidence in our justice system.

We're delighted to announce that Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham are the @MayorofLondon's newest Creative Enterprise Zones, joining Croydon, Haringey, Hounslow, Lambeth, Lewisham, Hackney and Tower Hamlets, and Waltham Forest. Read more https://tinyurl.com/34ney9wt

H&F’s first ‘Library of Things’ is now open at Hammersmith’s Livat shopping mall!

It allows you to rent household items that might not often use – such as drills, carpet cleaners, and pasta makers - from just a few pounds a day.

Truss says she "raises human rights issues with Gulf leaders all the time". Her spokesman says she hasn't. Asked by @RhonddaBryant to name a single occasion, she cannot.

This is Brexit's wider context: not just the alliance we trashed, but what alliances it's forcing us into.~AA

Former PM @Theresa_May says @BorisJohnson's plan to override parts of the NI Protocol is not legal, will not achieve its aims, and will not 'maintain the standing of the UK in the eyes of the world'.

As #PrideMonth draws to a close, a quick shout out to all my @HFLabour Cllr colleagues, and the many many @LBHF officers who have & are still using our official Pride background. It's been a tough, eventful month for the community, and this brings joy. Thank you 🙏 #Pride2022

We have just written to ministers and shadows @MoJGovUK and @luhc, along with our friends @Shelter, @WeAreLAPG @LawCentres & @genrentuk, to demand that housing law cases are exempt from Fixed Recoverable Costs.

Only four countries have tightened their abortion laws since the 1990s, while 50 have liberalised them – today's @newstatesman Chart of the Day. https://www.newstatesman.com/chart-of-the-day/2022/06/how-many-countries-have-tightened-abortion-laws

I just met with the Minister for Building Safety and Fire to follow up from my #PMQ about fire evacuation plans for disabled people.

Here's a thread on the meeting 🧵

Fun and games at #RefugeeWeek2022 party organised by @wlondonwelcome and the incredible @MacInnesJoanne. Good to relax with refugees, volunteers, and @LBHF councillors including deputy mayor Daryl Brown, @CllrDavidMorton and refugee champion @BecksHarvey12

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the country’s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.

‘I wouldn’t have the money to pay a lawyer’: tenants left without means to sue rogue landlords. Excellent piece on the looming disaster of fixed recoverable costs for housing cases. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/jun/26/i-wouldnt-have-the-money-to-pay-a-lawyer-tenants-left-without-means-to-sue-rogue-landlords?CMP=share_btn_tw

Today, on #ArmedForcesDay we thank our Armed Forces for keeping us safe and for their service on the front line.

A Labour government would make sure our veterans get a better deal with fair access to the housing and the services they deserve.

Boris Johnson accuses critics of his plan to deport refugees to Rwanda of "stereotyping" Africa.

Here's a reminder of just some of the things he's said about the continent.

Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues—attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.

After a lot of promotion from the Lord Chancellor, yesterday we finally got to see his #BillOfRights which turned out to be a ragbag of restrictions.

My question to @DominicRaab is here 👇

https://hansard.parliament.uk/Commons/2022-06-22/debates/5736CBBA-A5F0-45B9-AA54-246FF57FB5EE/BillOfRights#contribution-3E99F391-4F31-49AA-A239-3A81821AE812

🤢
Make no mistake this “bill of rights” is a full scale attack on people’s ability to claim their human rights in the UK. It will hugely increase executive power and decrease both rights protections and ability of courts to scrutinise public authorities. A dark day for rights https://twitter.com/ProfMarkElliott/status/1539610755015868421

Mark Elliott @ProfMarkElliott

The Bill of Rights Bill has just been published.

I'll tweet some thoughts as I read through it...

https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/58-03/0117/220117.pdf

/1

The Bill of Rights Bill isn't a serious thing.

As drafted, it is a chaotic hot mess.

The stated motivation behind it is to "do something about human rights."

But its entire reason for existence is as part of a political wedge issue. It is an electoral device.

/2

Let them eat cake: rights bill hard to swallow

A quick summary by me of a superb blog by @ProfMarkElliott

We also run an Ofsted registered pre-school provision for children aged 1-5 years. The preschool is an opportunity for children to learn through play in a friendly, warm, safe and stimulating environment. #smallcharitystory #SmallCharityWeek
