  • RT @duncanenright: For many years I had the honour of accompanying Barbara Castle to @UKLabour Conference. In 1975 she opposed EU membership. In 1979 she led the Socialist Group in the Euro Parliament to change Europe. 1/2

  • RT @gavinesler: I'm so glad you asked. For years I was on the BBC staff so all my staff salary was PAYE with tax deducted at source. By the way, as a former Tory MP, did you get round to repaying those parliamentary expenses? Remind us what the Watchdog said in your case?

  • RT @Cat_Headley: There is a man with a “Jesus sent the holocaust to punish Jews” sign outside Labour conference. Complaints have been made to the police but they say nothing can be done. This is a hate crime and this man should be warned and if he doesn’t move, arrested. @MerseyPolice
