No, Jeremy Corbyn never said he would wipeout student debt.

Last week Theresa May lied during Prime Minister’s Questions when she accused Jeremy Corbyn of betraying students. Then the Lib Dems jumped on the bandwagon. Now the Green Party and SNP are spreading this Tory lie. 

So much for that ‘progressive alliance’, eh guys? Shame on the lot of you. 

On 1 June, the NME published an interview with Jeremy Corbyn. During the interview, Corbyn said this: 

First of all, we want to get rid of student fees altogether. We’ll do it as soon as we get in, and we’ll then introduce legislation to ensure that any student going from the 2017-18 academic year will not pay fees. They will pay them, but we’ll rebate them when we’ve got the legislation through – that’s fundamentally the principle behind it. Yes, there is a block of those that currently have a massive debt, and I’m looking at ways that we could reduce that, ameliorate that, lengthen the period of paying it off, or some other means of reducing that debt burden.

I don’t have the simple answer for it at this stage – I don’t think anybody would expect me to, because this election was called unexpectedly; we had two weeks to prepare all of this – but I’m very well aware of that problem. And I don’t see why those that had the historical misfortune to be at university during the £9,000 period should be burdened excessively compared to those that went before or those that come after. I will deal with it.”

The Daily Mirror has also come to Corbyn’s defence on this Tory myth and made it clear what he actually said during the NME interview. At no point did Corbyn say he would end student debt, he said he would ‘look at’ the debt. It is blatantly obvious what Corbyn said and what he meant, but the other political parties and the Tory gutter press either have difficulty understanding English, or they are deliberately twisting Corbyn’s words. Or both.

Students are less likely to believe the lies coming from the other parties, and they are also unlikely to read the crap that is being published by The Sun, the Daily Mail and UKIP’s Daily Express. Most students tend to get their information from social media, and they are much smarter than the other parties realise. 

On the subject of tuition fees, the other parties constantly accuse Labour of introducing them. This is a lie. In fact, tuition fees were a cross-party agreement, and MPs from other political parties also voted for them, not just Labour MPs.

In 1996, John Major, who was still Conservative Prime Minister at the time, commissioned Lord Dearing to make recommendations on higher education funding. 

Lord Dearing’s report was published in 1997, and by then Tony Blair was Prime Minister. The Dearing Report recommended that students should pay approximately 25% of the cost of tuition but that government grants should remain in place.

Based on Lord Dearing’s recommendation, David Blunkett, the Labour Education Secretary, announced the introduction of £1,000 tuition fees to be paid by every student in each year of study, beginning in September 1998. The student grant of £1,710 was abolished and replaced by means-tested student loans. 

Parliament voted in favour of the Teaching and Higher Education Act and it passed into law – setting an annual tuition fee for England of £1,000. Means-testing meant a third of students did not pay anything.

So, the next time someone accuses Jeremy Corbyn of betraying students and blames Labour for tuition fees, show them this article.

Tory cuts to Essex Police has led to a crime surge in Thurrock 

Antisocial behaviour has become a major problem across Thurrock and it is accelerating. Here in Aveley, residents are complaining about unruly youths, vandalism and cruisers roaring around the area with loud exhausts and music bellowing out of cars. 
I have lived on the Kenningtons Estate in Aveley for 27 years and I have never known things to be this bad. The bus stop on Usk Road is regularly being vandalised, while groups of kids hang around outside the shops on Romford Road pestering people to buy them cigarettes. And if you refuse you are verbally abused. 

Other groups of kids are throwing water bombs and stones at buses and at people waiting at the bus stop on Usk Road. And when challenged, people are again verbally abused. Residents are also complaining about water bombs being thrown at cars as they have driven past the bus stop on Usk Road. A number of residents have had water bombs land inside their car as the windows were open due to the recent hot weather. One of these residents is a neighbour of mine and she ended up losing control of her car which hit a wall. The perpetrators ran away laughing and shouting. 

Elsewhere, Essex Police announced today that it allowed an illegal rave to continue last Saturday night in Davy Down, despite noise complaints from nearby residents. This is the second time this year Essex Police has allowed an illegal rave to continue in Thurrock, the first one was back in April. An all-night rave went on until gone 6.30am in Belhus Woods despite complaints from nearby residents. 

The actions of Essex Police are sending the wrong message and show that Tory cuts to the police force are having a detrimental effect on crime and antisocial behaviour across Thurrock. Since 2010, the Tories have cut Essex Police numbers by over 600. 

Police-recorded crime has risen by 10% across England and Wales – the largest annual rise for a decade – according to the Office of National Statistics. The latest crime figures for the 12 months to March also show an 18% rise in violent crime, including a 20% surge in gun crime and knife crime.

The official figures also show a 26% rise in the murder rate to 723 homicides, which includes the 96 cases of manslaughter at Hillsborough in 1989. More alarmingly the official statisticians say the rise in crime is accelerating, with a 3% increase recorded in the year to March 2015, followed by an 8% rise in the year to March 2016, and now a 10% increase in the 12 months to this March.

The accelerating rise in crime comes as Home Office figures show a further fall of 924 in the past year in the number of police officers to 123,142 in England and Wales. This is the lowest number of officers in England and Wales since 1985.

Police numbers have fallen by 20,592 since 2010. 

In 2015, Police Forces across the country warned Theresa May, who was the Home Secretary at the time, that Tory cuts to police numbers were putting Britain at risk of crime and terrorism. Theresa May accused the police of ‘scaremongering’ and carried on cutting numbers. 

The police warnings were right: Official statistics show crime is rising across England and Wales and Britain has had four terrorist attacks this year. And irresponsible Tory cuts are the reason why. 

I have utmost respect for the police and the Emergency Services. We should direct our frustration at the Tories, and not the police. Just like NHS workers, the police are working under extremely difficult circumstances and many are suffering stress because of Tory cuts to staffing. 

But if the situation in Aveley is not promptly resolved then I fear residents will take matters into their own hands. No doubt some people will read this and say “oh, what a miserable sod”. I really do not care, because unlike them I actually have respect for my neighbours and take pride in Thurrock.

Ian Paisley Jr complains about the ‘universal hatred’ of the DUP and compares it to Islamophobia

People across the UK are rightfully angry at Theresa May bunging the DUP a staggering £1.5bn just so she can remain in power, yet she says there is no ‘magic money tree’ to end austerity or give Public Sector workers a pay rise.

The Tories have spent the last two years labelling Jeremy Corbyn a terrorist sympathiser, but now they have done a deal with the DUP – despite the party’s history of racism and homophobia, and links to violence and terrorism. 

The DUP does not support gay rights and has labelled the LGBT+ community ‘perverts’ and says that we should be ‘cured’ of our sexuality. The DUP also opposes abortion, even if a woman has been raped. And DUP has connections to the KKK. 

It stands to reason that the DUP has received a hostile reception: the party’s stance on gay rights and racism is not welcome. As a gay man, I strongly object to the DUP making decisions that affect my future, like voting with the Tories to oppose a pay rise for Public Sector workers.

Ian Paisley Jr needs to get his own house in order before he condemns people for rightfully calling out the DUP on its atrocious record. 

There is enough division in Britain as it is and the last thing we need is the DUP making it worse. Since the Tories announced their deal with the DUP, provocational Orange Marches have taken place in Northern Ireland, Liverpool and Glasgow – and it is causing division among Irish communities. 

Sinn Féin has rightfully identified that Theresa May’s deal with the DUP is in breach of the Good Friday Agreement. 

Theresa May’s deal with the DUP shows how low she will stoop just to stay in power. Some people describe the Tory-DUP deal as a ‘coalition of crackpots’ but I prefer to call it the Axis of Evil.

Blairites are complaining about bullying. Now they know how Jeremy Corbyn supporters feel.

Richard Angell, leader of Blairite movement Progress, complained to Julie Hartley-Brewer on Talk Radio that so-called ‘moderates’ in the Labour Party are being bullied by Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters. And he raises concerns about the threat of deselections – but he never complained when Blairites held a leadership coup last year. 

Now Richard and his Blairite core know how Jeremy Corbyn supporters feel. They have continuously attacked us and undermined Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership. They also supported last year’s botched leadership coup, and they have persistently blocked pro-Corbyn candidates from standing in local and national elections – but then complained when their chosen candidate lost and blamed us for it. 

Blairites are now getting a taste of what they have put us through since Jeremy Corbyn was elected as Labour leader in 2015 – and they don’t like it. They have absolutely no right accusing pro-Corbyn supporters of bullying after the vindictive hate campaigns they have staged against us. They have used all tactics to try and destroy Jeremy Corbyn’s movement including false claims of antisemitism and homophobia, and there was an isolated incident where a pro-Corbyn member was falsely accused of spitting at a Blairite. 

Richard Angell has repeatedly attacked pro-Corbyn supporters and campaigners online. He was very vocal about them when Labour lost the Copeland by-election in February, yet refused to accept that the Blairites’ chosen candidate, Gillian Troughton, was the reason why. Copeland voted Brexit by 62%, but Gillian backed the Remain campaign. This did not go down well with the voters. 

The outcome of the snap general election was proof that New Labour is dead. Jeremy Corbyn defied his critics and performed way better than expected. In fact, it was Labour’s best performance since 1945, under Clement Attlee. 

Some Blairites have accepted that Jeremy Corbyn is here to stay and are now supporting him and calling for party unity, but regrettably, not everyone on the Labour-right is singing from the same hymn sheet.

The likelihood of Britain having another snap election this side of Christmas has become a reality. The Tories are deeply divided and are in a worse state than Labour was this time last year. Many Tory MPs are angry that Theresa May lost the party its majority. Tory MPs are also divided on Brexit, austerity and the DUP deal. 

Labour should be exploiting the Tories’ situation and get ready for another snap election. The latest poll gave Labour a 6-point lead over the Tories and this is why Theresa May is too afraid to call a snap election. As each day passes, Theresa May gets closer to falling on her sword. As the saying goes: ‘give ’em enough rope’.

Jeremy Corbyn will be the next Prime Minister and his social reforms will transform Britain and end austerity and inequality. And his supporters and campaigners will make sure it happens, whether Blairites like it or not.

I’m a Public Sector worker. And I’m sick of millionaires telling me I don’t deserve a pay rise 

I have worked in the Public Sector since 2001, and back then it was a great place to work. The working environment was relaxed and easy-going, senior managers treated you with respect and the pay was pretty decent, as were the perks and privileges. 
Offices were fully staffed; however, the IT we used was out of date, but it still did the job. And Departments were well managed and organised. 

In 2010 things changed within a matter of months when Labour left office and David Cameron became Prime Minister with his lapdog Nick Clegg. One of the first things they did was impose a 1% pay cap on Public Sector workers. Some of us had a 4-year pay freeze. Then they started robbing our pensions and hiked the retirement age – mine to 68. We are now paying more pension contributions but will receive less when we retire.

The next thing they did was start culling staff, closing offices, centralising work and setting unachievable targets. Since 2010, the Public Sector has become too target driven. And staff sickness across Government Departments has accelerated, mostly mental health problems caused by work-related stress. And if you take too many sick days your case is referred to a Decision Maker to decide your fate.

After a 4-year pay freeze I received a paltry 1% pay rise in 2015 – while MPs including George “we’re all in this together” Osborne – received 11%. And when trade unions complained about this, David Cameron arrogantly said that most people had been taken out of Tax and that was a substitute for a pay rise. 

The Tories are deliberately underfunding our public services including the NHS so they can justify selling them off. Poor performance can be used as the perfect excuse to brainwash taxpayers into agreeing that taxes should not be wasted on public services. They did that to British Rail from 1979 onwards which led to the privatisation of the railways in 1993. 

Public Sector workers have been hit hard with austerity and we have had enough. How dare millionaires including David Cameron and Norman Lamont say that we don’t deserve a pay rise. And now Tory MPs are trying to put Theresa May under pressure to end the Public Sector pay cap despite voting against Labour’s attempt to end the cap last week. Hypocrites, the lot of them.

The Tories don’t have a magic money tree to give Public Sector workers a pay rise but have so far blown £15.8bn on Universal Credit. Billions have also been wasted on the disastrous topdown reorganisation of the NHS which has resulted in huge deficits in England due to overspending on expensive agency staff and consultants because of staff shortages. A staggering £205bn is also available to upgrade Trident, while the Queen will get a taxpayer-funded rise of £8m because she can’t manage on £74m a year. And let’s not forget about the £1.5bn Theresa May paid the toxic DUP to keep her in power. 

Some ignorant Tory MPs have questioned where the money will come from if the Public Sector pay cap is lifted. I’ll tell you where it will come from: the same place where you have found £15.8bn to blow on Universal Credit, £8m for the Queen and the £1.5bn Theresa May paid the DUP.

I have worked in the Public Sector for 16 years and like many other people in my profession I am ready to quit. The Public Sector used to be a fun place to work, but since 2010 it’s been transformed into a workhouse where staff are treated like battery hens. We are sick of being overworked, underpaid and undervalued. 

Enough is enough.

The scale of Tory cuts to the Essex Fire Service 

On 18 June 2017, I wrote an article about Fire Service cuts in Essex and highlighted the dangers these cuts posed to tower block residents living in Thurrock. I now have details of these cuts to the Essex Fire Service.

I have acquired some detailed figures into Tory staffing cuts at Essex Fire Service. Overall employment costs are £129,000 (1.5%) under budget for the two months to 31 May 2017.

Spend for the whole-time firefighters is £136,000 (2.8%) under budget, this reflects headcount being lower than budget.

For on-call firefighters, spend is £60,000 (9.1%) under budget. This comprises two main elements, actual average headcount at 491 has been consistently below budget at 519 this year, this results in an underspend of £30,000 to May. Activity levels have decreased and are lower than budget, this accounts for an underspend of £30,000 to date.

Support staff pay is £73,000 (3.9%) over budget for the last two months to 31 May. This comprised of an underspend of £1,000 on directly employed staff (there is further adjustments required to the budget to accommodate the Job Evaluation impact for the current reporting year), an overspend of £3,000 on Secondary Contract Staff and an overspend of £71,000 on casual and temporary staff.

Directly employed support staff full-time equivalent (FTE) headcount was 261.2 at 31 May, this shows a net increase of 4.6 FTE or 1.8% since the beginning of the year. A further point worth highlighting is that we now have 14.8 (5%) vacancies against the budgeted establishment. There were also 33 Temporary Support Staff engaged to the end of May 2017.

This takes the total Support Staff to 294.2 for May 2017 (18.2 FTE above budget).

Whole-time firefighter numbers at 612.5 are 17.5 (2.8%) under phased budget at the end of May.

Irresponsible Tory cuts to the Fire Service across the country are putting firefighters under immense pressure and public safety in danger, and it has taken the Grenfell Tower tragedy to highlight the seriousness of these cuts. 

Despite the population growing, the Tories are not investing in infrastructure or public services like the Fire Service, but instead they are cutting them. How many more people must die in the name of Tory austerity in Britain? 

Enough is enough.

Thurrock’s tower block residents are at risk of death because of Tory cuts to the Essex Fire Service

Grenfell Tower was a terrible tragedy that should never have happened, and it will go down as one of the worst tragedies in British history. But in the wake of Grenfell Tower, residents in tower blocks across the country are now worried, nervous and frightened.

On Sunday, 18 June, I was contacted by an Essex firefighter. I am keeping his name anonymous. The firefighter informed me of the effects Tory cuts are having on the Fire Service in Thurrock, Essex. 

Thurrock’s Conservative MP Jackie Doyle-Price has voted for austerity measures including cuts to welfare, the Police Force and Fire Service. Essex now has 600 fewer Police Officers compared to 2010.

Jackie Doyle-Price’s supported cuts to the Fire Service in Essex have put Thurrock’s tower block residents at risk of a Grenfell Tower tragedy. There are roughly 14 tower blocks across Thurrock and in the event of a fire, the Fire Service in Thurrock no longer has access to a hydraulic lift because of Tory cuts. The Fire Service has to assess the situation and if a hydraulic lift is required then they have to contact Southend-on-Sea which is nearly 30 miles away. It could take up to 45 minutes for the hydraulic lift to arrive in Thurrock, possibly longer depending on traffic, by which time any residents trapped in a tower block are at risk of death. 

The firefighter has already spoken to some local residents in Thurrock’s tower blocks, and they were unaware of the scale of Fire Service cuts in Essex. Many are now very angry at Jackie Doyle-Price and the Tories for these irresponsible cuts.

Tory austerity is killing people. Disabled people are dying, robbed of their dignity; pensioners no longer have access to care due to social care cuts, and despite the Tories being warned in 2015 that their cuts to the Police Force and Armed Forces were putting Britain at risk of terrorism, they carried on cutting. Britain has since had three terror attacks in 2017. But the final straw is the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

The Tories’ irresponsible cuts to the Emergency Services and Armed Forces must be reversed. How many more terror attacks and tragedies will it take for Theresa May to listen? 

This Tory Government has blood on its hands and I am extremely angry that Thurrock residents are now at risk of a Grenfell Tower tragedy because of unnecessary, irresponsible and dangerous Tory cuts to the Fire Service. 

I have contacted Thurrock Labour on behalf on the firefighter for an action plan to be put in place to hold Jackie Doyle-Price and the Tory Government to account. The firefighter will also join forces with Thurrock Labour to talk to local residents in these tower blocks and hand out literature. 

Enough is enough.

General Election 2017: A quick thank you to everyone 

I would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who has tweeted me both publicly and privately thanking me for my tweets over the last 7 weeks since the General Election was called. 

I have tweeted tirelessly day and night, written several blogs and given feedback to local press and advice to people who were unsure which way to vote. I have had messages from people informing me they voted Labour all thanks to my tweets, many of which included factual news articles.

This election campaign has been fantastic from Labour’s point of view. In 2015, when Ed Miliband stood as leader, Labour achieved around 28% of the vote, yet Jeremy Corbyn has managed to prove his critics and detractors wrong by increasing Labour’s vote share to 40%. The Conservatives archived 42%. 

Here in Thurrock, Labour failed to win the seat from incumbent Conservative MP Jackie Doyle-Price, which was very disappointing. However, the good news is John Kent did increase Labour’s vote to 19,535 votes, an increase of 6.2% compared to 2015. 

The Conservatives achieved 19,880 votes, an increase of 5.8% compared to 2015. Labour has cut the Conservative majority from 536 votes to 345. 
But the biggest loser was UKIP. Tim Aker achieved 10,112 votes, a collapse of 11.9% compared to 2015. 

Over the coming weeks we will be in for some turbulent times. Theresa May’s ‘coalition of chaos’ with the DUP will not last as her position as Prime Minister is no longer tenable. Her deal with the DUP is being branded the ‘Bad Friday Agreement’ on social media. 

We must be prepared for another snap election this side of Christmas.

Theresa May has jeopardised Brexit and the Good Friday Agreement, while the Conservatives have caused Leave supporters a great deal of anger. But the next election will be a game-changer: the Conservatives’ constituencies that voted Leave are very likely to be target by an angry UKIP who will whip up support because Theresa May cannot deliver her hard Brexit. UKIP will split the vote in these seats – and this could be very good news for Labour. 

Last night, Jeremy Corbyn laid the foundations for a new left-wing Government thanks to the brilliant campaign he led. I am immensely proud to have been part of the social media platform which has made a difference for Labour.  

From a simple tweet to a knock at the door, from a phone call to delivering a leaflet – everyone involved in Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign has made a difference and you should all be proud of your achievements. 

Once again, thank you.

UKIP is misleading Thurrock voters into thinking Labour is not standing in the election – so it can steal votes.

Tim Aker is leading a pathetic and desperate election campaign in Thurrock. Firstly, he is falsely claiming that UKIP is the only party opposing the Lower Thames Crossing. This is a barefaced lie. Labour has opposed this crossing since day one. And John Kent and Barbara and Gerard Rice have also campaigned against it – and still do.

Secondly, Tim Aker’s poorly-presented election literature is falsely claiming that Thurrock is a two-horse race between UKIP and the Conservatives. There is no mention of Labour or the Liberal Democrats. This has been done to deliberately mislead voters into a false pretence that Labour and the Liberal Democrats are not standing in Thurrock, and that the only alternative to Jackie Doyle-Price is UKIP. A lady recently raised this issue with Your Thurrock

Tim Aker and UKIP are treating the good people of Thurrock as fools. Many will not fall for his lies and deceit over the Lower Thames Crossing and false pretence that Labour and the Liberal Democrats are not standing in this election. On the contrary, John Kent and the Labour campaign trail has been all over Thurrock and receiving positive feedback from voters, based on what John Kent and Labour are saying on social media. Unlike UKIP, Labour does not have to lie to win an election. There are enough liars in Westminster as it, so why add Tim Aker to the collection? 

UKIP is now polling at 7%, yet in the 2015 General Election it was at 19%. Tim Aker has zero chance in winning Thurrock; the people saw through him in 2015 and will do so again on 8 June. Thurrock residents have even made reference to his atrocious performance in the EU Parliament – that is when he can be bothered to show up. 

The only way UKIP can win the election in Thurrock is by lying to the voters about the Lower Thames Crossing, steal Labour’s votes by giving a false pretence that the party is not standing, and claim credit for projects and decisions in Thurrock that are none of his business.

Across the country, UKIP are doing deals with the Conservatives in this general election by either not contesting seats or inviting supporters to vote tactically by voting Conservative. Theresa May has effectively replaced UKIP and taken swathes of votes which is why some people label her and the Conservatives as BluKip. 

But the bottom line is this: A vote for Tim Aker is a vote for Jackie Doyle-Price. A vote for John Kent is a vote for Jeremy Corbyn. 

Vote Labour on 8 June.

The Tories are the threat to national security, and the Manchester terror attack is why

Since 2010, the Tories have brutally cut the numbers in the Police Force by over 20,000, Armed Forces by over 20,000, the Home Office including Border Agency personnel by 6,000, the Navy by 5,000 and the RAF by 5,000. And it was recently revealed that Trident is operated by Windows XP, the same system used by the NHS that was recently hacked, causing chaos across the country. 

Theresa May was Home Secretary when these cuts were made and she authorised them. She was warned in 2012 about the pace of cuts to the Police Force but she continued with them regardless. Then, in 2015, she was again warned that Britain was at risk of a Paris-style terrorist attack because of cuts to the Police Force, the Armed Forces and the Home Office. The Police Federation also warned Theresa May, as did Jeremy Corbyn. She never listened and accused the Police Force of scaremongering and insisted that cuts would go ahead. 

Theresa May claims to be a ‘strong and stable’ leader but this could not be further from the truth. Tory cuts to the Police Force, Armed Forces and Home Office have put Britain at risk of terrorism – and that risk became a reality on 22 May 2017 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at the Manchester Arena. The youngest victim was aged just 8. 

It has now emerged that the terrorist, Salman Abedi, was known to the Home Office and the FBI, but he still managed to commit the worst act of terror on British soil. Theresa May has serious questions to answer. 

Theresa May and this Tory Government are responsible for the threat of terrorism in Britain and they have blood on their hands. As Home Secretary, Theresa May repeatedly ignored the warnings about the effects her cuts were having on national security and crime. Now 22 people have paid the price for her incompetence and this Tory Government’s ruthless and damn-right dangerous austerity programme. 

I fully condemn the terrorist attack in Manchester and I also condemn Theresa May and this Tory Government for making it happen. Despite her claim of being a strong and stable leader, Theresa May never gave her press release until four hours after the terror attack. One of the first politicians to speak out was Jeremy Corbyn, followed by Tim Farron shortly afterwards.

The threat of terrorism has been raised to Critical which mean a terrorist attack is imminent. Theresa May has deployed troops on the streets to make up for the shortfall of Police Officers she has cut since 2010, and is using this opportunity to promote her strong and stable image. Do not be fooled.

On Tuesday, I cried tears of heartache, today I cry tears of anger. Tears of anger because this Tory Government is responsible for the threat of terrorism because austerity has put Britain at risk. Hearing the screams of those poor children in the Manchester Arena will haunt many of us forever. Beautiful children who were enjoying themselves have been killed and many more have been scarred for life. My niece is 12 this year and that could have been her inside the Manchester Arena.

We are just a few weeks away from the General Election and I urge you to vote Labour. Jeremy Corbyn has unveiled a fully-costed manifesto and it will include putting Britain’s security first by hiring 10,000 Police Officers, 500 Home Office Border Guards, 3,000 Firefighters, 3,000 Prison Officers, more Armed Forces personnel and a renewal of Trident, £10billion on cyber security and ban the sale of arms sales to Saudi Arabia. 

The Tories will not rule out further cuts to the Police Force, Armed Forces and Home Office, putting Britain more at risk to terrorism and crime. Theresa May is not a strong and stable leader, she is weak and wobbly. 

Theresa May and this Tory Government are a threat to national security and I hold them personally responsible for the terrorist atrocity in Manchester.
