Our Branch president Richard Clarke at Birmingham’s War memorial with Janice Wadrup. Lest we forget, we shall remember them #Armistice100 “In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below.” — "IN FLANDERS FIELDS" BY JOHN MCCRAE
Recently we’ve been calling for the Government to come clean about reported secret Cabinet discussions on suspending workplace rights in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit . As part of this campaign Jon Trickett MP submitted a written Parliamentary Question asking them to confirm whether or not these discussions took place. The Minister replied in writing. No surprise, they avoided answering the question. They ducked the matter in hand, and simply restated the Government position on rights and Brexit. It’s frustrating not to get a proper answer. But the crucial point is this – they were asked the question, and they didn’t deny it. It’s not good enough. Their promises to protect our rights are not worth much if even the Cabinet are talking about ripping them up.
