Important intervention from the DUP's Jeffrey Donaldson on #r4today "what we have heard... this deal has the potential to lead to the break-up of the United Kingdom and that is not something we can support." May's deal will not bring us together, it will tear us apart.
It has been six months since I first raised this in parliament. There is still no compensation, still no hardship fund and still no final figure of the number of lives impacted. History will judge the government poorly for this shocking mistreatment and abuse of its own citizens.
Our own were citizens sent across the ocean without a penny in their pockets. The same ocean Britain took their ancestors across in chains on slave ships. Thousands of victims walk among us: destitute, homeless, jobless; still waiting for the compensation they need and deserve.
Tonight @ukhomeoffice released the news that 83 British citizens, at least 8 of whom are dead, were victims of Theresa May’s ‘deport first ask questions later’ hostile environment. This number will continue to rise as more cases are identified. (gov.uk/government/pub…)
Roger Scruton's description of the National Front as "egalitarian" is another reason why he is unfit to serve as a government adviser. It shows either deep ignorance or contempt. The National Front is only egalitarian if you are white. huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/may-urge…
At 11.11am today, we mark exactly 100 years since the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the sounds of war fell silent. We must never forget our soldiers' immense sacrifice or the brutal realities of war. #RemembranceDay2018 #Armistice100 https://t.co/lqBg2CWYuk
