    Dear Ms Ali,

    I refer to tomorrow’s commemoration of the sacrifice of their lives by the fallen in the ranks of the NHS. This is too soon. The war is not over. Even a cigar smoking, boozing old fart would have noted ‘it is not even the end of the beginning’.

    I ask of you to best use your offices to report this concern that we need to steady ourselves for a long fight and only once the day has been won should we pause and offer a testament to their sacrifice that is not driven by a populist fashion but by open sincerity and our truest gratitude.

    And what next? How do we publicly recognise those NHS staff and volunteers who fall in the days, weeks and months to come? There is surely the danger that the respect for the work of all the NHS workers will ultimately be blurred.

    Some Robert Frost vision needed here.

    Kind regards
    Colum McGinley

    Hi Diane, yes, you’re on the contact site and I don’t know why our MP hasn’t been in touch with you.

    I’ve found these contact details for her: 0207 219 7200 , Rushanara@rushanaraali.org.
    I guess you’ve already found this but, just in case the British Nationals help webpage for Goa is:
    https://www.contact-embassy.service.gov.uk/?country=India&post=British%20Nationals%20Assistance%20Office%20Goa.

    Also, if a newspaper might be able to help publicise your case and other people in a similar position, it might be worth sending an email to news@standard.co.uk or one of the nationals . If you’re happy to share an email address in this forum, maybe that will provide an easier way for anyone reading these posts to contact you.

    I can raise your plight with the London Evening Standard. If you have any contact details, you can post them here and I will pass them on. That’s all I can think of for the moment but let me know via this link if you want me to help any other way.

    Dear Diane Bayliss, I’m so sorry to hear about your predicament. There are countless British citizens in a similar position in other countries, many receiving no consular support at all, according to the stories we hear in the news. I’m sorry that I can’t offer any more practical support than sympathy.

    Dear Rafiq Alam, I completely agree with you. Policing the park to make sure that people are not using it to congregate in groups is one thing but closing it and preventing people using it for exercise is, just as you said, a reaction based on panic, not logic.

    I am not happy about the decision to close Victoria park and I think those that made the decision has done so in a panicky state.
    We should be in sound mind making such a big decision.
    The decision is unfair & unwise ,not smart and led by fear.

    Covid 19. We are told the onset of summer will help. If so, why not try to bring summer closer? This could be done by bringing the change to summer time forward as much as possible – even if the planned change is only two weeks away. This could be complemented by shortening the working week and so bringing more daylight into lives. This would give people the chance to exercise more in the evening – walking home and so on. Bring the summer forward. Please.

    DWP has given me so much trouble financially, due to their lack of skills. They gave me so much misinformation and no response to my complaints. Rushanara Ali has also contacted them about my matter but they still have not responded and it’s now been over 4 months since my complaint! I do not have anymore options and i feel very upset that this secretary of state of work and pensions is treating me like this.

    Good morning. Raines foundation school was about to close and I wrote you to intervene and support the parents to save the oldest school in East London, but you refused. You cannot tel me you didn’t hear about it. It has proved it was an insidious plan as Tower Hamlets Is planning to build a new school now.
    This will cause Labour votes if this plan is not stopped. GOD WILL INTERVENE AND JUDGE ALL WHO PLANNED TO CLOSE THIS SCHOOL INSTEAD OF SAVING IT. THOSE PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILY WILL SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF PUTTING ALL THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES THROUGH EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL TRAUMA.
    Rushnara, PLEASE, do something now, it is not late. We have been voting you not minding because we are Labour supporters. We are VERY VERY ANGRY with how the Raines issue has been handled. I doubt how you will say you have not heard about it as our MP.
    Can you please visit the school and speak to the Raines foundation Trust and stop the closure of this school with Christian ethos here in Bethnal Green. SAVE RAINES FOUNDATION NOW FROM BEING CLOSED.
    GOD BLESS RAINES FOUNDATIIN SCHOOL AND GOD BLESS ALL THOSE WHO ARE FIGHTING TO SAVE RAINES FOUNDATION SCHOOL.

    DWP has been constantly mistreating my mothers universal credit. DWP staff are not competent and lack training and skills which lead to my mom struggling financially and having to rely on food stamps and loans. My mom has complained to DWP dozens of times but they did not reply to her at all and its been 3 months since she sent her formal complaint but not a single response from DWP has been recieved. This Universal Credit system is really destroying some families welfare state.

    Hi I need help my 16yr old was awarded enhanced pip, we lease a car through motobility. We were told we would get the bluebadge before leasing after leasing we were refused blue badge, also resident permit and we are only allowed 30 visitors vouchers (3 books per year). Then I was told that we could apply from 28 August 2019 for blue badge again under hidden disabilities. After speaking we still apparently don’t meet the criteria I’m in desperate situation. I’m alone parent and struggle financially I have received many parking tickets. It’s actually affecting my physical and mental health and this is detrimental to being able to parent my children without the stress and worry. I’ve left numerous messages but havnt received a call ot appt yet please can u contact me

    That is why on 7th of September 2019 I will be taking on an Ultra Marathon, Walking the distance of 100km London to Henly-on-Thames, and I will be fundraising for Sew&Support. This is the link to my fundraising page https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RAFIQ.
