The Centre boasts a brand new modern-style Post Office with extended opening hours, a coffee shop, a printing shop, as well as a children's indoor soft play area. Glenda said it was a "miracle", and "just what London needs - to inspire us to treat our neighbours better".

There is a team from Ireland who are campaigning to build a memorial befitting the name of Patrick O'Connell, the famous footballer from Dublin who played for Belfast Celtic, Sheffield Wednesday and was also captain of Manchester United in 1915 and managed Real Betis to La Liga in 1935 and also managed and saved FC Barcelona from extinction during the Franco War.

 

Sadly despite these successes Mr O'Connell died destitue in London in 1959 and to this day is buried in an unmarked grave in St Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Kilburn.

 

 

The gaols of the Patrick O'Connell Memorial Fund team is to raise funds to build such a memorial, and to do so they are having a fundraising event at Mr O'Connell's first football club in England, Sheffield Wednesday, at Hillsborough Stadium (Sheffield) in February 2015. There will be 30 signed football shirts by legends of world football which will be auctioned to raise funds.

Glenda_Jackson_cropped.jpgGlenda has been very vocal in the House on the issue of Syria and is against military invasion from the International community. Instead, she feels passionately that a peaceable solultion must be reached.

 

She spoke up on the day parliament was re-called, pressing the Prime Minister on what actual evidence there was that intervention from the International community would actually stop the Syrian regime from using chemical weapons. She reinforced the point that, after lessons learned in the Iraq War, we must be 100% sure that our actions will help the situation rather than exacerbating it:

 

"I am most grateful to the Prime Minister. What has convinced him—where is the evidence?—that an action by the international community would cease the use of chemical weapons within Syria, a country where the combatants have accepted 100,000 dead, millions of refugees and the continuing action that is totally destroying that country? Where is the evidence that convinces the Prime Minister that the external world can prevent this?"

 

Glenda is an advocate for peaceful resolution to the situation, and also on sending more humanitarian aid to the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing Syria, the 6 million people within Syria and the 80-150 people who are dying every day due to conventional weapons.

 

Glenda also spoke in the house on 12th September urging the PM to fully support open and safe access to Syria, and to encourage neighbouring countries in the Gulf to help more with the humanitarian aid effort.
