Neil: "I remain opposed to leaving full stop and we should all be aware that votes on the EU Withdrawal Bill and its inherent
self-harm will be scrutinised heavily in the months and years to come, for who stood up to Brexit’s worst extremes and those who stood by and allowed our country to be so shamefully downgraded".

Neil: "I was proud to attend and lay wreaths on behalf of everyone in Bermondsey and Old Southwark at a number of services, including: at City Hall; on West Lane; at the memorial to the Queen’s Regiment on Old Jamaica Road; at the St Saviour’s memorial on Borough High Street; and at the Imperial War Museum".

"I joined the excellent local poppy sellers at their Bermondsey station stall last week where I was honoured to meet Joseph Eagle who is 96 and grew up (and still lives) in Bermondsey. Joseph joined the RAF aged just 18 in 1939, and fought for our country throughout World War II. He and all the Bermondsey poppy sellers raised good sums for the British Legion and I thank everyone for their generosity".

Neil: "Ministers need to make sure vulnerable people are protected. We need to find ways of reassuring landlords whilst also supporting homeless people to find and sustain a tenancy. The DWP “alternative payment agreements” are clearly failing and the government is reluctant to use them further." 

"That’s where “help to rent” projects might work better. Such projects support tenants to overcome the financial obstacles that so often trap people in homelessness, such as the need for a deposit and rent upfront. At the same time, they alleviate landlords’ concerns by providing pre-tenancy training for tenants, ongoing residents’ support and a suite of services for landlords."

Neil:  “Companies are being asked to pay up to a scheme that won’t cover the kind of attack that happened at London Bridge, because business interruption cover is limited to physical damage”

“There are businesses that had insurance that will not receive money. The government needs to get on and update the legislation to extend the cover of Pool Re to cover knife and vehicle attacks.”

"Southwark’s trialling of universal credit has been fraught with problems. Almost weekly, I have seen the direct effect of the scheme’s inbuilt delays."

"From asking for help to getting any takes at least six weeks, but the average has consistently been higher – and many people wait up to 12 weeks. This pushes many into foodbank use, debt, rent arrears and even evictions".

Neil: "It is a shame May is not more focused on domestic policy. The huge growth in crime and anti-social behaviour is concerning for many local people.

The jump in moped related crime and knife crime has not been matched by a rise in prosecutions. Last week marked two years since 15 year old Mo Dura-Ray was murdered in Walworth. His mum and sister still await justice. Under May, criminals are getting away with it whilst she is blinded by Brexit"
