My contribution in the #QueensSpeech debate today 👇. We’re in an unprecedented cost-of-living crisis, but the Government is far more interested in stoking division than helping struggling households. Labour would bring forward an Emergency Budget NOW to support families.
Caller to James Oh Brien just said ‘although there are people having the rely on food banks, I think the spectacle of the monarchy and the crown will bring them joy’ when trying to justify #QueensSpeech scenes yesterday.
1/2 AfA Coalition sent an appeal with 206 signatures to Parliament after the Animals Abroad Bills was dropped from the Queen’s speech on May 11th. However, there is still some hope, as on May 19th, MPs will be voting in the PMB Ballot #AnimalsAbroadBill#QueensSpeech
Excellent question (and timing) from Holly Lynch MP about Ministers meeting former KGB Agents which the Home Secretary certainly wasn't prepared for during the 'Preventing crime and delivering justice' section of the #QueensSpeech debate
👑 | NEW: Prince Charles and Rishi Sunak spotted at Walworth Road JD Sports - I asked the Prince how his brief walkabout through East Street Market compared to yesterday’s #QueensSpeech . He chuckled to himself and said: “Slightly different!”
The #QueensSpeech was a waste of time. Nothing on the #CostOfLivingCrisis nothing on right to food, nothing to help with bills, just more authoritarianism, more crackdowns, more damage to the country coming down the line. At least Johnson & Starmer got chatty though. #DamoRants
Stephen Greenhalgh Some clarity pls on when the promised package of measures to address the unfair practices (eg Ground Rents) affecting existing LHs will be announced? A 2 tier system now exists. You’re not going to leave things like this are you? #Leasehold#QueensSpeech
