1. Grant Shapps’ latest TfL funding letter is total nonsense.

It seems he has:

➡️ no basic understanding of how TfL finances work and

➡️ no respect for the truth - a common theme with this Government.

🔴 travel chaos, not enough staff, passport queues

In 2014 we celebrated the eradication of Polio in India. In Parliament we also called for more work on the global eradication. The new news shows we can't stand still, global health is ever changing.

Dr Devi Sridhar believes a person who has been vaccinated abroad with a live polio vaccine has visited the UK and has spread it to others, as live vaccines can spread the virus.

In Britain we use an inactive vaccine so it isn't live.

The government’s #SEND Review presents an important opportunity to fundamentally change how support for families with disabled children works. I’m proud to have signed the #SENDABetterMessage pledge with @DCPcampaign to back calls for a less bureaucratic system.

On this #PublicServiceDay we'd like to thank the many public service workers who help older people and communities across #Ealing.

We'd also like to say thanks again to our wonderful #volunteers, because we couldn't deliver our services without them.
