Two royal stories in @bbcnews  headlines. Nothing about a Prime Minister found in court to have misled Parliament. Weird.

Utterly disgraceful. In Parliament, the Conservatives just voted down putting Grenfell Inquiry recommendations into law. Almost 4 years since the tragedy, they still haven't learned its lessons. They should hang their heads in shame.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a knee while attending a demonstration on Parliament Hill that was organized to protest racial injustice and police brutality. Read more here:

A Māori politician in New Zealand who was thrown out of Parliament for not wearing a Western tie was allowed back, after uproar. Ties are no longer mandatory. Rawiri Waititi called ties a "colonial noose" and a product of racist systems designed to subjugate Indigenous people.

Disgusting. In Parliament, I just challenged Jacob Rees-Mogg about UNICEF having to feed working class kids in the UK. His reply? "UNICEF should be ashamed of itself". He accused it of "playing politics". It's shameful for kids to go hungry. It's not shameful to feed them.

Appeal to EP: You should be open to a long extension, if the UK wishes to rethink its strategy. 6 million people signed the petition, 1 million marched. They may not feel sufficiently represented by UK Parliament but they must feel represented by you. Because they are Europeans.

Singing of Auld Lang Syne starts in the European Parliament as the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement is approved by MEPs

An archaic and medieval practice has finally been confined to the dustbin of history! Parliament abolishes Triple Talaq and corrects a historical wrong done to Muslim women. This is a victory of gender justice and will further equality in society. India rejoices today!

Members of the UK Parliament just condemned President Trump.
