As the Met Police have been placed in special measures, should the appointment of the new Commissioner be paused and rethought?

My letter to Home Secretary @pritipatel yesterday ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

It's important that the Home Secretary @pritipatel understands our feelings, as the London PLP, following the news that the Met Police Service have been put into special measures.

Our letter, co-signed by fellow London Labour MPs, with 3 hours notice.

Will no doubt add more.๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

Walthamstow if you were on Orford road near my office between 5.30 and 8pm today please come forward to help us catch the cowards who attacked my office. Please share to help find who did this - you can also give anonymous info on crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.

Many people across London experience repeated stop and search despite doing nothing wrong.

I used the HMIC research and examined institutional racism and the impact on our communities. @BylineTV.

After today's decision, it is more pertinent than ever๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

Today's decision to place the Met Police into special measures is the right decision.

I have long called for systemic changes, In the UK we police by consent and the Met Police continued to fail the people they were supposed to serve. 1/3

This proves that London Labour MPs and @MayorofLondon were right.
wide-ranging reforms urgently needed by the Met Police to regain the trust and confidence of Londoners.
The Mayor @SadiqKhan has shown leadership where the Home Secretary has failed.

Solidarity to striking barristers & solicitors @ Old Bailey protest over government's serious underfunding of criminal legal aid.

These are not well-paid lawyers but rely on legal aid ยฃ12k a year for a 70-hour week. Its wrong and unfair @TheCriminalBar

This is a lie.

81.5% voted for this action.

There is no โ€œ15% pay riseโ€ on offer.

There is no โ€œยฃ7,000 more a yearโ€.

Junior criminal barristers will remain on less than minimum wage.

Dominic Raab @DominicRaab

"The hypocrisy is raging."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slams the "contradiction" of the Supreme Court after saying 'states can't make laws governing the constitutional right to bear arms' yesterday, and saying the "reverse" today about abortion rights.

https://trib.al/OaOdwXL

No one, not the government, not politicians, not the Supreme Court should prevent access to abortion, birth control, and contraceptives. People should have the FREEDOM to choose. (1/2)

Weโ€™ll deliver the biggest scrappage scheme feasible to help Londoners adapt to a London-wide ULEZ. The Government must also step up and commit to providing extra support for a scrappage scheme in London โ€“ like they are doing for other cities around the country.

Thinking of Apsana and wishing her all the strength and support she needs. As a survivor of domestic abuse she needs protecting.

@UKLabour needs to pause this process now.

Apsana Begum MP @ApsanaBegumMP

A statement:

The @RMTunion are fighting for people, not profits.

The Governmentโ€™s priority is to ensure that shareholders get plenty of money while workers struggle.

These are some of the people you clapped for.

I know whose side I'm on๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

Today there are some lucky people who have the opportunity to boot out Boris via proxy.

In Wakefield please vote for @SimonLightwood and send a message to the Tories. #votelabourparty

There are more of us than there are of them. ๐Ÿ˜

If we are in a class war what class are you in?

Ministers planning to boost City bosses pay whilst workers struggle to cope with the worst cost of living crisis in history.

@BorisJohnson had no answer to my Q instead attacking me for standing up for workers.

Tories are on side of bankers not people who are suffering. #PMQs

Boris Johnson suggesting that Keir Starmerโ€™s authority is undermined because Labour takes donations from the unions.

Meanwhile, just two days ago, the PM auctioned himself off for ยฃ120,000 to the highest bidderโ€ฆ https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/inside-glitzy-tory-summer-party-27293529

Today weโ€™ve written to @nadhimzahawi. If teachers donโ€™t receive the above inflation pay increase they deserve, we will be balloting for industrial action.

It's time to #ValueEducation and #ValueEducators

On #WindrushDay2022 I urge the Government to pay the outstanding compensation to the Windrush Generation still waiting.

It's criminal that people are still waiting! Justice denied to people who have contributed so much to this country.

Thinking back to my speech from 2018๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

On #WindrushDay2022, I'll be telling you about some of the people affected by the Windrush scandal and still waiting for justice.
Thomas Kinsley tells of one such case in today's Independent. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/windrush-claimant-case-abandoned-home-office-b2106012.html

Make no mistake - this Tory Govt's actions are central to the disruption we've endured today.

They don't care about workers, don't care about TfL & don't care about Londoners.

They need to get their act together & agree a long-term funding deal for TfL.

Mick Lynch @RMTunion has been bloody amazing! If you've been impressed, support the strike, smiled at his put downs, laughed at him calling out Tory lies or just agreed with one word of what he's said then please donate to the strike fund below.

This treacherous government has underfunded & mismanaged our public transport network for more than a decade.

As a proud trade unionist, I stand with all workers on our railway network who are taking industrial action to fight for their jobs & keep passengers safe #RailStrikes

Proud to support the workers on the picket line at London Victoria this morning, alongside colleagues.

These workers keep our country moving safely 365 days a year. The least they deserve is to be paid properly and feel secure in their jobs. #RailStrikes @RMTunion

I'm a feminist and as such I have a responsibility to help all women. This whole process has made the first hijab wearing MP ill. We have a responsibility to protect her.

The process should be stopped and started again with proper oversight. It needs to be a fair process. https://twitter.com/HamletsNo/status/1539020139097620480
