I waited over 20 years to report my sexual abuser. Because I was 14. Because it was my hero. Because it was my priest. Because I thought I'd be expelled. Because I feared no one would believe me. Because I thought suicide was easier than telling 1 person

2 out of 3 sexual assaults are never reported. Might have something to do with the fact that for every 1,000 rapes, 994 perpetrators walk free. And the fact that men in power make statements like this one.

Lambeth councillors in the early 80s spent their time organising public meetings about their illegal budget. Meanwhile contract corruption was endemic and hundreds of children in their care were being sexually abused.

People should stop using until they pay their tax. Starbucks use our roads, employ people we educate and who need our health service, but they won't pay for it. They should be ashamed.

Nearly every woman I know has been sexually assaulted at some point in her life, including me. I only know a handful of people who reported it, much less went public with it, for all of the reasons that Christine Ford was afraid to. Staying quiet is the norm, not the exception.

I’m in an unaccustomed position with Katie Hopkins. My normal attitude is sympathy to almost anyone in trouble. But she’s different. She hypothesised she could make a fortune by saying awful things, becoming a horrible racist. It’s important for public discourse that she failed.

What’s a little light antisemitism when there’s a trade deal to be struck, eh?

My great-uncle Michael Foot was a lifelong anti-Stalinist. Friend of Orwell, Koestler and Silone. Ludicrous to claim he was a Soviet spy. Sued successfully for libel around this when he was alive. No evidence. Shameful and cowardly.

Ps anti-Semitism isn't free speech. It's hate speech. Learn the fucking difference.

And it deeply saddens me that many people I have once worked with politically, have revealed themselves to be deeply, and casually, antisemitic. It has poisoned the deepest parts of our political society, and I don't know how we can even begin to root it out. But we must try.

Someone with records of where Rebecca lives went and did this. This is racially motivated bullying of a Jewish Labour member and her family. Rebecca you have the solidarity of all members today. Very brave to speak out.
