Moving Forward, Very Welcome Step Forward. A better and peaceful world is not only possible but its taking shape right now

 

Afzal Khan MP

“I was delighted to meet with a delegation from the Sikh and Pakistani community to discuss the development of the Kartarpur Corridor initiative.

The Pakistani government announced that access to the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur will be opened for Sikh pilgrims, in time for celebrations of the 550th anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak.

This is a big step for the global Sikh community, and also for Pakistani and Indian relations.

I would like to thank Yasmin Qureshi MP for organising this, as well as fellow parliamentarians for showing their support.

This significant milestone symbolises the cooperation between Pakistan and India and the potential to build peace between the two countries. I am hopeful this progress continues. Confidence building is critical for the South Asia region and this moment of positivity needs to carry on between India and Pakistan for the sake of their citizens “

“It is with regret to inform you that I resigned from the post of Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling. I have found myself in a difficult position over the last few months with the effective backdoor privatisation of the nurseries, the proposals of the loss of pay to care workers together with the ongoing dispute with UNISON and the current dispute with Unite the Union around the “secret payments” to GMB. I was asked to sign off a report to seek an injunction against UNITE and UNISON using TORY party legislation that will ultimately lead to an attack on a trade union is something that I cannot be a party of.

I have very much enjoyed my time serving the city as the Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling. It has been a huge privilege and honour to hold the position establishing a really good working relationship with the workforce in street cleansing, refuse collection and waste enforcement. There are still major issues in the refusal collection and if we’re to build a long term sustainable service for the citizens changes need to be made working in conjunction with the workers.

However given the direction that the cabinet are seeking around the bins dispute, and the home care workers to take this Labour council I find myself having to compromise my socialist values of equality, fairness and justice. This is something I am not prepared to do, and I will as a backbench Labour councillor be in a better place to fight on a platform of socialism, and do my utmost to stop the cabinet making decisions that are against our Labour values.

A huge thank you to the many community groups, citizens, union colleagues that I have got to know during my role. You all do some fantastic work. Keep it up, and I am always here to help those seeking to improve the lives #FortheMany.

I will remain as a committed local councillor, and will do what I do best which is representing my constituents with my colleague Diane Donaldson in the Bromford and Hodge Hill ward. #solidarity #JC4PM

We often complain that our elected politicians/councilors are not doing enough
But when they do are we supporting them enough?
Think its time we show well deserved support where its due!

General Election Now. Thousand poured into Central London Wearing Yellow Vests.

Why Tories Must Go. Worst Post War Government.

General Election Now.  In their history Tories  never  did much for the nation.  They Consistently damaged nations wealth by creating and dramatising the need to rid off it by selling it off cheaply, such as BP and GPO  property owned  by the hard working people of Britain. Many more crown jewels were sold off by Tories, its a case where our nation has been taken for a ride to poverty.

 

Investment Gone,  £22bn flew away from being  invested in UK.  Job opportunities lost, 204,997 gone , Manufacturing in Danger, Job security gone. Fascists on the march. Far right Extremist numbers going up at an alarming rate.

  

Too many reasons for Theresa May to go. General Election has become order of the day.

Muslims under attack, Broad Street in Birmingham Petrol Bombed and as usual ignored by MSM.

Homeless numbers up, Nearly 600 homeless people died last year . Our NHS Disappearing, Wards closed, Hospital death waiting on trolleys gone up. Privatisation & Tax dodging on the increase. European parts factories close, Michelin and Schaeffler to close UK plants with 1,400 job gone. These are but just the few Tories failed Brexit mess mentions.

 

Large numbers of British people present in London protesting against Theresa May and her government’s BREXIT failures. General Election Now turn out in London is a massive statement demanding Tory government to hold elections

Weekend Saw a Huge yellow Vest Protest. General Election Now.

Hats off!  Now that’s commitment.    In very cold and wet weather thousands poured into Central London wearing yellow vests.
