I have news for Nigel Farage. Ireland is an independent, democratic nation that has freely chosen for its own benefit to be a member of the community of 27 independent nations known as the European Union. I am proud to have represented that sovereign nation for more than 40 years
Nigel Farage spoke to Claire about Irish nationalism and independence. #CBLive

🚨Belfast High Court just ruled Secretary of State accountable for dragging his feet on provision of abortion services for women in Northern Ireland - 3 years on from when parliament legislated to give access to service still doesn't exist. RT to call on @BrandonLewis to act! 🚨

“To mark your heritage, culture & language is so important & something we celebrate here in Coventry. We’re proud of our diversity “It’s great Margaret’s family got the justice they deserve. It sets a precedent & I hope no family has to go through it again” @TaiwoOwatemi 👏👏👏
LISTEN🎧: I spoke to @BBCCWR about the @My_Mums_Voice campaign. Their fight for justice has been so important for the Irish community, and for our city. The campaign has shown Coventry at it's best - a diverse city where all can celebrate their heritage, culture and language.

Our Chair in @theirishworld: “Decision to reject an Irish-only inscription on grounds it’d be seen as a ‘political slogan’ was discriminatory The Irish language is not political - it was politicised by that decision. Cultural expression, inc language, is a right of all citizens”

Irish passport is ahead of British passport in index tracking most powerful passports in the world 🇮🇪 Tory Brexit means restricting freedoms to travel, live & work abroad whilst battling fuel & food shortages at home. “Global Britain” they say... 🤔🤷‍♂️ irishpost.com/news/irish-pas…

Lord Frost negotiated every word of deal he now discredits at every opportunity. This speech sets the stage for another destabilising stand-off, with the agreement businesses and communities need further away than ever. This approach is stoking tension while solving nothing.
