Full battle bus report coming soon

That’s all from the pro-EU Labour battle bus in St George’s Square.

Boris Johnson branded "cynical" by Labour Party boss

Tom Watson, deputy leader of the Labour Party, told a crowd of around 50 people that Boris Johnson’s support for leaving the EU was “cynical”.

“I look at the way Boris Johnson is leading this campaign. He’s a cynical MP, he’s a short-sighted politician who puts his own interests above that of the country.”

Labour in For Britain - the official, not-very-catchy group name

MP's comment branded "pathetic"

On Facebook, Mark Richardson isn’t impressed with Mr Sheerman’s suggestion that some in the Brexit camp appear to hate women.


I am voting out but i don’t hate women what a pathetic comment..


Warning to voters from MP

Mr Sheerman said “grumpy old men” who wanted out of the EU would be highly likely to cast their vote on the day, whereas pro-EU people might be less passionate. “It’s who gets out on the day. Grumpy old men tend to vote.”

Is the Brexit camp full of hate?

Mr Sheerman told me earlier today: “Why is there so much hate coming from the Brexit camp? They hate Europe, they seem to hate women. What is the matter with these people? The grumpy old Brexiters are not thinking about the future of our country and young people.”

A doomsday prediction from the Labour man

Mr Sheerman said leaving the EU would be “catastrophic” for towns like Huddersfield

"Grumpy old men" - it's getting personal

Mr Sheerman quoted research which suggested that the “more educated” and women tended to support remaining in the EU. He said the Brexit camp contained a lot of “grumpy old men”

The deputy leader has landed

The MP has painted a doomsday scenario - do you agree?

Mr Sheerman claimed that leaving EU will damage the town’s engineering firms - and the University will stand to lose cash and students

Some 'Vote Remain' placards and red balloons

Huddersfield facing "bankruptcy" if Britain leaves EU

The town’s MP, Barry Sheerman, told me earlier today: “I don’t want to see our town heading into bankruptcy - this town should not for a moment think of going into the ‘Leave’ lobby.”

There are 12 zero-rated establishments in Kirklees — nine in Huddersfield, one in Holmfirth, one in Batley and one in Liversedge.

News

A THREATENED A&E department has been given a six-month stay of execution as hospital bosses anticipate a damning report from a government health watchdog.

It is believed that health chiefs had hoped to accelerate a downgrade of services at Dewsbury District Hospital, leading to the end of emergency care at the hospital in September.

But the plan, designed to save £10m a year, has reverted to its original schedule, which means the downgrade will not take place until April 2017.
