    Neil Coyle: Profiteering from terrorism must end

    Last year the UK experienced terror attacks and tragedy on an unprecedented scale. As families and communities tried to come to terms with loss and bereavement, British people demonstrated typical generosity and determination by donating huge sums to the victims and families affected. The great, Great British public donated £10m to the people affected by the Manchester Arena attack, the Grenfell disaster and the London Bridge and Borough Market terrorism in my own constituency.

    Matt Wrack: Labour must vow to scrap all anti-union laws – beyond the Trade Union Act 2016

    Our Tory anti-union laws represent one of the foremost constraints preventing working-class people from winning better conditions at work and making gains in wider politics.
