Strikers in saris leader praised for bravery

Allen Cook

BBC News

A woman who led a groundbreaking strike in the 1970s has been remembered for her "extraordinary bravery".

In 1976, Jayaben Desai led the first walkout in revolt at poor working conditions at the Grunwick film processing factory in London.

Eventually more than 20,000 people joined in the protest and, although the strikers eventually gave up the struggle, it did focus attention on the plight of immigrant workers in the UK.

Now, a play's been written about the strike, We Are The Lions Mr Manager, and is on tour.

Writing in the Daily Mirror, Birmingham Erdington MP Jack Dromey, who at the time was the secretary of Brent Trades Council, says Mrs Desai was inspirational and "had a way with words that captured the very essence of the human spirit".

Obscene tax avoidance needs tackling: Labour MP

The Labour MP for Erdington is backing calls for a public inquiry into tax avoidance after the leak of the Paradise Papers, calling the situation "obscene".

Jack Dromey said the time had come to "finally tackle this issue".

The Conservative Party says that since 2010, it has secured almost £160bn through tackling tax evasion and avoidance to go towards public services - although Labour disputes that figure.

It is obscene that rich people should seek to get even richer by salting away their billions in offshore bank accounts whilst working people suffer the longest stagnation on wages for 150 years

Overhead wire problems between Gravelly Hill and Four Oaks are affecting services between Birmingham New Street and Lichfield Trent Valley.

Replacement buses will be available for passengers at stations along the route.

National Rail is advising compensation may be available to passengers and they should keep their tickets in order to make a claim.

Erdington MP challenges government over tower block costs

Councils will have to prove they "can't afford" new safety measures recommended following the Grenfell Tower tragedy to receive Government money, Damian Green, The First Secretary of State, has said.

Labour's Jack Dromey Labour MP for Birmingham Erdington told Mr Green: "Birmingham has 231 tower blocks.

"The city council has rightly decided it will retrofit sprinklers in all of those blocks. That will cost £31m in a council that has suffered £700 million of cuts to their budget.

"Will the Government unequivocally commit to funding all necessary safety measures, pending the outcome of the inquiry?"

Mr Green replied: "I'm sure all local authorities will want to follow the fire service's recommendations on this.

"If the local authority can show it can't afford it, then obviously central government will step in."

Birmingham Erdington: Labour hold

Jack Dromey keeps his seat.

The Conservatives had put up a strong fight in the constituency.

Conservatives fought hard in Erdington, Birmingham

Political editor, Midlands

Throughout the night and into the morning, we'll be bringing you an overview of the interesting seats across the West Midlands, the marginal seats and plenty of your views from throughout the campaign.

Let's start with taking a look at Erdington in the heart of Birmingham.

The Conservatives have been fighting hard for the 7% swing they need to capture the seat.

Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May
PA

It's where Theresa May's Downing Street Joint Chief of Staff Nick Timothy grew up. And it was he who oversaw that Conservative manifesto commitment on Social Care which is now widely considered the biggest single reason behind their apparent loss of support.

But it is also the constituency which registered the city's biggest Leave vote of 63% in the EU Referendum.

Now it happens to be one of 28 Midlands seats where UKIP are not fielding candidates, which could well boost the Conservatives.
