I’m not currently an MP, as Parliament has been dissolved until after the General Election.
This may be an incomplete list. If you think we're missing someone, please send us their Name, Country/State, Political Party, Office they hold or are seeking and, of course, Twitter handle. Thanks!
The Govts decision to appoint Lord Carlile to lead the Review on #Prevent is completely irresponsible and ill-thought, this is someone who has no credibility or trust with impacted communities. Please support @RightsWatch in crowdfunding to legally challenge this decision.
Courts are "in a state of physical decay barely fit for purpose", courts are left shut and "Justice is being delayed and denied because the Ministry refuse to fund those most important to an effective Justice System". If this gov. care about #justice, why won't they fund it?
Incredibly, even as these cases pile up the Gov. is selling yet more #courts and leaving others shut (see @CourtsIdle); this is cruel and wrong. The Gov. needs to open those courts & stop playing with people's lives. Justice is a right, not a privilege of the few #thelawisbroken
Broken down by offence, the average time per case increased by around 100 days for sexual offences and 173 days for rape specifically. 'Offences against the person' cases took 8% longer, burglary 21%. This brutal attack on our #justicesystem is causing untold harm to victims.
Coverage here of some shocking responses to #justice questions I asked recently. In ten years of #austerity, average time from referral to end of case in all cases where CPS chose to charge has risen by 50 days. That's 50 more days of lives on hold. 1/2 theguardian.com/law/2019/oct/0…
