Yvette Cooper quotes

Jul 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

It is her job to ask difficult questions. It is her job to be sceptical about everything we say. Nothing justifies the personal vitriol, or the misogyny.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - British elections 2017

I never ever want our party to dehumanise our opponents. That's what the far right do.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Labour Party

If they have been living here for less than five years, will they still have all the same rights as if they had been living here for more than five years?feedback

Jun 25 2017 - Brexit

The Government cannot carry on as usual, pretending that the election didn't happen and that the public didn't deliver their verdict on Theresa May's plan. A Brexit deal - if it is to last - must have a mandate and broad backing behind it, instead of something cobbled together by a small Conservative cabal. Justin Welby is right, now we all have a big job to do in pulling our divided country together - and this could be a start.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Youtube

The select committee recommended that they should be more proactive in searching for and taking down illegal and extremist content, and to invest more of their profits in moderation.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Youtube

News that Google will now proactively scan content and fund the trusted flaggers who were helping to moderate their own site is therefore important and welcome, though there is still more to do.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - British elections 2017

In a hung parliament, you can't possibly try to run the Brexit negotiations through a Theresa May-led Tory cabal. The whole thing will just fall apart. We should set up a small cross-party commission to conduct the negotiations, and have a clear and transparent process to build consensus behind the final deal.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - British elections 2017

It was always a mistake by Theresa May to try to conduct the Brexit negotiations through a small Tory cabal. This is the biggest issue for our country for a generation and if the deal is going to be sustainable it needs cross-party support and a broad consensus behind it. Now it is more important than ever. There is neither strength nor stability in a narrow, bunkered one-party approach, you need to include people with different ideas to get the best deal and widest support.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Labour Party

That's why Jeremy Corbyn has set out proposals for, instead of having the cuts to capital gains tax the Conservatives want, which would give money back to investors, instead we should put that money into 10,000 police officers across the country. I think that would be the right thing to do.feedback

Jun 05 2017

Many of us have been warning for some time that the scale of police cuts in Britain has gone too far. To lose 20,000 officers wasn't the right thing for our future and we should be trying to increase them again.feedback

May 31 2017

You can have a sense of burning injustice [about a subject] and yet you don't get heard because of the way that the House of Commons works - people stop listening to you because you're not speaking in a low enough voice.feedback

May 22 2017 - Facebook

In most cases the reality of sharing vile and violent images of violence and child abuse simply perpetuates the humiliation and abuse of a child. Images should be given to the police and removed instead. Facebook are getting this wrong and need to urgently change.feedback

May 22 2017 - Facebook

These files demonstrate why powerful social media companies, including Facebook, have to be more transparent… They also show why we were right to call on social media companies to urgently review their community guidelines, as too much harmful and dangerous content is getting through. None of this is easy, and we welcomed Facebook's commitment a fortnight ago to hire thousands more staff to tackle the problem and bring in more safety measures.feedback

May 19 2017 - Libya

It is completely unacceptable for the Home Office to provide so little information.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Youtube

Social media companies' failure to deal with illegal and dangerous material online is a disgrace. They have been asked repeatedly to come up with better systems to remove illegal material such as terrorist recruitment or online child abuse. Yet repeatedly they have failed to do so. It is shameful.feedback

Apr 26 2017

It beggars belief that these children weren't helped earlier because of a basic admin error.feedback

Apr 26 2017

Time and again the select committee and local councils across the country told the Home Office that there were more places available, but they wouldn't budge and they failed to follow up. Surely on something as important as this, when children are at risk of trafficking and prostitution, they would have checked the numbers were right.feedback

Apr 26 2017

This revelation now casts further doubt on the whole consultation process – how many more places could be missing? The home secretary should apologise for this mistake and urgently reopen the consultation, and the Dubs scheme, further so councils and communities aren't stopped from helping some of the most vulnerable kids in the world.feedback

Apr 09 2017

This is a system that has been set up by a Conservative government. They ought to make sure Conservative councils then do their bit and they are not doing so. Labour areas in good faith have said: 'We will do our bit,' and the unfair consequence is they are then being asked to do far more than their bit.feedback

Apr 09 2017

It's a deeply unfair shambles. You've got the asylum hostels concentrated in the lowest income areas and also in a very small number of areas. It's just not fair to do it that way. It's not good for community cohesion, it's not good for local authorities … it also creates a sense of resentment.feedback

Apr 09 2017

The current Compass contract scheme [for distributing asylum seekers] means that in the end local authorities get very little control over how it works. Having signed up, it's then very difficult for them to pull out, so they just don't sign up in the first place. So this is not just about 'why aren't local authorities signing up?' … More local authorities would sign up if the government designed a better scheme.feedback

Apr 09 2017

If you look at the Syrian programme, that has been a good way of getting partnerships with local authorities and it also taps into what I think is people's sense of responsibility. As long as it's managed, and as long as it's something they have got control over, rather than just being something that is just done to them.feedback

Apr 05 2017

It's not enough to say the words zero tolerance on antisemitism – Labour has to put them into practice.feedback

Mar 30 2017

This is all a bit lame. All the Government and social media companies appear to have agreed is to discuss options for a possible forum in order to have more discussions. Having meetings about meetings just isn't good enough when there is still illegal terrorist recruitment propaganda up online. They need to get on with taking it down, and to say what resources they will put into doing this. Social media and the internet can be a fantastic force for immense good, but they also need to get their act together and stop the dangerous illegal poison spreading online.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Extremism

These are incredibly powerful organisations. They are able to analyse algorithms and behaviour in a sophisticated way in order to target potential consumers with adverts. It's time they used more of that power, money and technology to deal with hate crime and to keep people safe.feedback

Mar 22 2017

Thank you PC Keith Palmer – to your bravery many others owe their lives and safety.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Extremism

Ministers need to tell us what action they plan to take. It should not be beyond the wit of Google to use one of their much-feted search engines or algorithms to remove this illegal material.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Vodafone

It is inexplicable to us that Google can move very fast to remove material from YouTube when it is found to be copyrighted, but that the same prompt action is not taken when the material involves proscribed organisations and hateful and illegal content.feedback

Mar 17 2017

Government advertisements and major brands advertising is still being placed on inappropriate and hate filled sites. As a result Google and these organisations are still profiting from hatred.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Youtube

Most people would be appalled by that video and think it goes against all standards of public decency in this country.feedback

Mar 14 2017

Surely when you manage to have such a good reputation with advertisers for targeting content and for doing all kinds of sophisticated things with your platforms, surely you should be able to do a better job in order to be able to keep your users safe online and deal with this kind of hate speech. Don't you feel any sense of responsibility as a multi-billion pound organisation to at least check that you are not distributing material from proscribed organisations?feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Ku Klux Klan

You allow David Duke to upload an entire video which is all about malicious and hateful comments about Jewish people. How on earth is that not a breach of your own guidelines? I think most people would be appalled by that video and think it goes against all standards of public decency in this country. We understand the challenges you face ... but you all have millions of users in the UK and you make billions of pounds from these users. You all have a terrible reputation among users for dealing swiftly with problems in content even against your own community standards.feedback

Mar 05 2017 - Refugees

There is a big gap between what the government has said, and the evidence we heard from local councils and from organisations like Unicef who are working with child refugees. This is too important to get wrong when children's lives and futures are at risk.feedback

Mar 05 2017

The government has also said local councils can only take 350 children under the Dubs scheme. But councils told us that with funding in place they could take many more. That's why we want ministers to publish all the council offers of help they have had, and to find out how many more children they could take in the next financial year.feedback

Jan 31 2017 - Refugees

The state of accommodation for some asylum seekers and refugees in this country is a disgrace. No one should be living in conditions like that.feedback

Jan 30 2017 - Refugees

For the sake of history, for heaven's sake have the guts to speak out.feedback

Sep 26 2016

I think the party does feel divided but it's also determined not to split.feedback

Aug 25 2015

Our promise of hope wasn't strong enough to drown out the Tory and UKIP voices of fear. That's what we need to change.feedback

Jul 30 2010 - Unemployment

Unfortunately, the measures that the new government has put in place actually are cutting the number of jobs, increasing the number of people who are on unemployment benefit and increasing the welfare bills as a result.feedback

Oct 20 2008

We have got to make sure we keep up that investment to support the economy through a difficult time.feedback
