Safer Streets for All?

We discovered that Home Secretary Priti Patel was in charge of a debate in the House of Commons this week that was all about safer streets. Several Scottish MPs raised the issue of the heavy-handed, inhumane actions of the Immigration Enforcement action in Kenmure Street. These MPs praised the people of Pollokshields. You can read all about it below.

Hi @pritipatel I see you led a debate called Safe Streets for All yesterday. Does that include #KenmureStreet? Did you listen when your colleagues told you we are #NotAMob? Could you talk to them? They’ll tell you what kind of folk we are…

I see @AnneMcLaughlin thanked the “peaceful, sober and tidy people of #Pollokshields” for being good neighbours

Here @Stuart_McDonald says the @ukhomeoffice was “endangering the citizens of #Glasgow” last week in #KenmureSt . Can you speak to him about what happened?

And @AngelaCrawley30 reminded you that you spoiled Eid for many people in #Pollokshields. But folk still found a positive way to help their neighbours. Can you maybe have a word with Angela and @alisonthewliss about that?

.@pritipatel please can you read the Hansard report and talk to your colleagues. I suspect quite a few want a word.

Then maybe it will be time to tell #KenmureStreet we’re #NotAMob

Ta.
