Labour's Thornberry quits over tweet

Labour's Emily Thornberry has resigned from the Labour front bench over a tweet she sent during the Rochester and Strood by-election campaign. The shadow attorney general previously apologisedfor the tweet, which showed a terraced house with three England flags, and a white van parked outside. Alongside the picture, she wrote: "Image from Rochester". She said she had not meant to cause offence, but Labour backbencher John Mann accused her of "snobbery". The by-election was triggered when Conservative MP Mark Reckless defected to the UK Independence Party and resigned his seat to seek re-election for UKIP. Mr Reckless won the by-election with 16,867 votes from Conservative candidate Kelly Tolhurst on 13,947. Labour's Naushabah Khan was third on 6,713, with the Green's Clive Gregory next with 1,692 votes and the Liberal Democrats back with 349. Before the result was announced, BBC political editor Nick Robinson said the tweet had "given the Tory press an alternative narrative" to UKIP's expected victory in the by-election. He said: "It is the most extraordinary self-inflicted wound I have seen an opposition party inflict on themselves in many, many years."

Labour will improve buses with local powers E-mail
Dearne News
John Healey MP says the bus service in South Yorkshire is not good enough, so he's backing Labour's plan for greater local control.

Speaking in the Commons last week, I said giving cities and regions London-style powers to make bus services cheaper, more frequent and more reliable is exactly what we need in Rotherham and Barnsley.

Many people rely on buses, and the poorest need them the most. But the Government have cut bus funding by 17% in the last three years and 1,300 routes have gone as a result.

Recently I've been involved in several campaigns to keep local services where bus companies planned to scrap or change routes because they weren't profitable. We've had some success in Wath, Rawmarsh, Wickersley and Thurnscoe and I'm currently fighting for the number 3 between Ravenfield and Wickersley to be brought back.
