I hope you have had a great start to the week, the sun has been shining, the birds have been singing, and so have I- so watch out Sheffield it’s going to get especially wet and wild over the next few days!
Talking of singing, fans of The Daily Politics show may have heard the fantastic Jo Coburn in fine voice yesterday on the programme as her guests included equality champion and Labour MP Jess Phillips amongst others. The programme also featured a discussion on Apprenticeships and pay from a gendered perspective-definitely well worth a viewing!

On a more serious note, (pun unintended) politics is also a forum for parliamentary petitions to be given an airing and on this Charity Tuesday, why not lend your signature for a local cause such as this 38 Degrees Petition by our network founder Judith Dodds https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/make-housing-developers-be-transparent-in-sheffield-3
In the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower disaster, there can be no time like the present with regard to increased transparency amongst housing developers, so please share this far and wide amongst your networks.
Fans of live parliamentary debate may also find Monday’s House Of Commons afternoon session particularly interesting with regard to issues relating to housing on the radar amongst many others http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/b40d6026-936d-470f-b1a0-08ef0600c4af
And if you fancy hearing your voice echoing around the Commons chambers in Westminster, then a short journey to Manchester could be your destiny calling for The Parliament Project forthcoming event- http://www.parliamentproject.co.uk/events/2017/7/25/explore-your-political-pathway-mmu-birley-community-learning-festival
So no need to wait for permission, why not make it your mission in (Wo)Manchester to have your future electoral cards marked!!
Good evening and take care folks- until next rhyme!
