People should not be facing such unnecessary barriers to securing justice. This will further fuel fears that the government’s courts reforms will further undermine access to justice of vulnerable people, who are often facing life changing decisions. huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/undermin…
As I told @BBCr4today, it’s the duty of politicians to work to get a Brexit compromise that brings the country together & sorts out this Tory Brexit mess. But if Tory intransigence makes that impossible it may need to go back to the public via a General Election or public vote.
Shocking behaviour from independent, SNP & Lib Dem MPs last night. They're playing Russian roulette with people's futures in a desperate bid to get their perfect outcome. There's every chance of a deal based on a Customs Union & the Single Market. These MPs need to compromise. https://t.co/f32F8I7Gb7
