    “A public vote has to be an option for Labour” – Keir Starmer’s Brexit speech at Fabian conference

    I want to start by welcoming everyone to my constituency of Holborn and St Pancras… And by thanking Ivana, Andrew and all Fabians staff for today’s conference. To put it mildly, it’s well timed.

    Roy Kennedy: Here’s what we must add to the Offensive Weapons Bill

    The Offensive Weapons Bill is currently making its way through parliament, with provisions to restrict the sale of corrosive substances, knives and firearms. These steps to protect the public and tackle violent crime are urgently needed. As we introduce new restrictions on the sale of these items, however, it is crucial that we also act to protect the shop workers responsible for enforcing them, and who we already rely on to police the sale of 25 other types of products […]
