I voted to throw out the Government’s Nationality and Borders Bill at Second Reading. Rather than creating a fair and humane asylum system, the Tories are punishing people who come here seeking safety and exposing them to further risk of exploitation and human rights violations.
The Prime Minister personally negotiated the Northern Ireland Protocol. Now the Government is threatening to tear it up.
Opposing the Health and Care Bill: money we spend on the NHS should go into our health services, not Tory donors’ pockets
How are the Tories celebrating the NHS’s 73rd birthday this month? By introducing a Bill that undermines its foundations: increasing privatisation, putting private companies at the heart of NHS management and paving the way to sell off our health data.
The Tories’ Higher Education (Free Speech) Bill is nothing of the sort. It tramples on students unions’ autonomy, overturns long-standing no-platform policies, narrows the legal definition of academic freedoms and fails to address real threats to campus free speech: the ever-failing Prevent duty, casualised employment, insecure research funding and, of course, the Government.
I asked the Government what plans they have to legislate against the rising threat of violence against women from involuntary celibates, more commonly known as “Incels”, an online subculture of men who definethemselves by their inability to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one.
For my third PMQ in the same number of weeks, I highlighted the NHS workers protesting the Tories’ Health and Care Bill in the run-up to the NHS’s 73rd birthday.
