Shocking behaviour by the Labour Party about the No 41 Bus in Birmingham

At Prime Ministers question time today I raised the issue of cancellation of bus services. I referred to the No 41 bus which was cancelled at the weekend.

Bus services are being cancelled all over the country because we don't have the same system for bus management outside London that exists in London.

I asked the Prime Minister why we could not have the same system (Sector Tendering) outside London that exists in London.

The Labour Party ridiculed the question.

Bus services are very important to people who don't have cars. These are generally people who are less wealthy. I thought the Labour Party were supposed to care about these people, but clearly they don't.

I think the Labour Party as a whole should apologise for their lack of respect for bus travellers.

John, I found the PM's response to your question very offensive, it was as if local issues don't matter and he didn't care about any of them, as a person who uses public transport on a daily basis it is vital that the transport local and nation serves its purpose which should be passanger led.

Would he give the same response to his own constituents, if a No. 41 Bus issue happened there, I bet he would hold an urgent cabinet meeting asap.

It showed how far out of touch with the general population the PM and Labour party is.

Great Question for a great cause John, isn't that just what MP's are paid and voted into office to do.

Statement re False Allegations Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …
