There is a violent crime emergency on our streets. We have no time to waste. Young lives are being wasted as the government breaks yet another promise.

An important message to Brexiteers from Nancy Pelosi: "A US-UK trade agreement (is) just not on the cards if there is any harm done to the Good Friday accords. Don't even think about it."
