Smashing the stigma of male domestic abuse. A monthly drop-in session in the town aims to give men a safe space to open up. The session - run by Kevin Forsey, a Domestic Abuse Survivor Liaison Worker - will be held on Wednesday from 12-2pm at the Newport Hub on St Paul’s Road.

God save the Queen simply MEANS God save our country: In other words, God save the British people. The Monarch IS the people she represents. She is ours. That’s the whole point of her sacrifice! 🙄 Do people really not get this?!
Nothing inspiring about the National Anthem. It doesn’t speak to, of, for or about British people/British values. No sense of collective purpose, call to action or nation’s hope. Only to praise a Monarch. Relic of past decadent of subservience. God save the Queen,what about us?

Not sure it comes across enough but there are many brilliant civil servants who are also deeply concerned about the behaviour of a small minority of their colleagues. They deserve support too. More from me on Tavistock in today’s Sunday Times 👇 thetimes.co.uk/article/the-t…

This is a very important article from @KemiBadenoch on the issue of the types of ministers. "Those who assume that officials know best and follow their advice unquestioningly, becoming spokespeople rather than decision-makers — and those who don’t." thetimes.co.uk/article/the-t…

We should expel the Russian ambassador - the embassy is openly using the house room granted in the UK to advocate yet more war crimes.

Cheers Lofty, so many constituents & constituents of my colleagues across Gtr. Lincs have contacted me since we had the honour to lead official opening - McCartney Way has been transformational for the City traffic flow & enviro. improvements, & for reductions in journey times😇.
You should see the recently opened Lincoln Eastern Bypass, (Karl McCartney Way). The cycle paths & pedestrian walkways along the whole length are the best I have seen & used in the county. It’s nice to have a portfolio holder who understands their subject. 🚗 🚛 🚴🚶‍♀️🚌 🚋

There is still time to have your say on #Labour’s plans to charge drivers of 28,000 vehicles in #Bexley £12.50 PER DAY to drive them - at the same time as he’s increased Council Tax by 8% & cut all funding for transport projects in #Bexley. #KhansCuts bexley.gov.uk/your-say-on-pl…
In line with the clear mandate given to us by #Bexley residents on 5th May, we have responded on behalf of #Bexley residents to the #Labour Mayor’s ULEZ plan by opposing his scheme to charge people £12.50 a day to drive their cars. bexley.gov.uk/news/bexley-hi…

This week we’ve removed 37 foreign criminals with a combined sentence of 188 years. Including convictions for horrendous crimes such as rape and sexual assault.  Our Borders Act will make it easier to deport foreign criminals and protect the British public.
