👏 Thanks you @michelledonelan and @nadhimzahawi for standing up to Advance HE and protecting academic freedom.
This comes further to the letter I wrote with my Common Sense group colleagues, which you can read here with the minister's letter: http://britainuncancelled.co.uk/woke-curriculum #FreeSpeech
The NI Protocol is undermining the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. The EU are unwilling to change the Protocol, therefore we must act.
Read my @FT piece on how our legislation will fix the practical problems the Protocol is causing👇
Ashby Sports day, good to see so many young people out enjoying the activities and some not so young as well.
Great news that Derby County have a preferred bidder in David Clowes whose already bought the stadium. Hopefully the situation is finally resolved this week, I intend to raise the failure of regulations that allowed it to happen this week as it can’t be allowed to happen again
Boris Johnson says he'll fight two more elections and will be PM until 2030. Tory MP @ABridgen quips: “I’m happy for him to stay until 20:30 - he can even stay until 9 o’clock if he wants.” https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/19002587/boris-johnson-predicted-lead-britain-2030s?utm_source=native_share&utm_medium=sharebar_native&utm_campaign=sharebaramp
The former French colony of Gabon is joining the Commonwealth. English is mandatory in its primary schools. Gabon is one of the largest oil producers in Africa and believes the UK is better for its future development than France.
Celebrating our armed forces in Leicester today
I have never voted for HS2 and I am not about to start now. This evening the House is voting on the Crewe to Manchester Bill This does not affect NWLeicestershire. I have informed my whip I will abstain.
Sir Keir is acknowledging a conclusion the majority of the electorate came to 6 years ago and one that the electorate will remember he and his party vociferously opposed. Labour are the party of open borders and unlimited immigration and Sir Keir’s statement won’t change that.
Am I the only one who thinks Sir Keir Starmer has the look of a man who is expecting a fine?
Starmer must come clean & say if he backs rail strike chaos, demands minister https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/18939160/keir-starmer-supports-strike-chaos/?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_campaign=sunpoliticstwitter&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1655703405
This is great news! @ABridgen @CRIL21 @LeicsCountyHall @nrushton
Good news on gas supplies, but wouldn’t it be better still for the environment and our balance of payments if we started fracking our own shale gas supplies?
I await the British Geological Survey report later this month.
Britain’s Centrica has signed a major deal with Norway’s Equinor, boosting UK supply for the next 3 winters.
With ongoing uncertainty in Europe, securing extra supply is welcome as we maximise gas production in British waters and accelerate nuclear and renewables.
Delighted to attend a celebration of Indian culture in committee room 12 with many residents of the great city of Leicester.
Labour just can’t help themselves, it’s in their DNA to support any strike against the public interest, the RMT are one of their paymasters. Labour work for the unions not the electorate.
Labour had the chance in Parliament to oppose a week of rail chaos. They refused to 👇
North West Leicestershire is leading the way with many new businesses locating in our district creating thousands of new jobs.
Excellent to work with such a pro-business district council .
More people are on payrolls and unemployment is at almost 50-year lows - work is key to helping families facing global cost of living pressures.
A thoughtful piece by Iain Duncan Smith.
A number of people are raising the Derby County situation with me. To be clear, I am not part of team Derby and I am not privy to their discussions, I have however raised issues with them and fed in my own thoughts on how best to proceed. The early part of this week will be
We have been here before…
We cannot give way to rail strike blackmail – this is a defining moment for Britain
Hugely disappointing news at this very late stage. I have spoken to the representatives of alternative buyers in the past few months and will be encouraging them to come back and rescue the club #dcfc
Rams commentator Ed Dawes says Chris Kirchner's deal to buy Derby is expected to collapse.
"There is a problem with closing this deal and huge frustration. When Alonso and Bin Zayed were asked to transfer proven funds they couldn't. Then it was over."
Last night’s vote is worse in percentage terms than that suffered by Mrs May and on a par with Heseltine’s challenge against Mrs Thatcher.
The Prime Minister should now leave with honour and residual affection for what he has achieved.
Lord Hague is right. The residual concerns from across the party will continue to remain.
Boris Johnson should look for an honourable exit
It makes you proud to be British, doesn’t it?

Superb cream tea this afternoon ( with musical entertainment from @TPADS1 ) at @ThringstoneMSC.
Excellent service at St Mary de Castro church Leicester, this evening to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s 70 years of faith and service.
70 devoted years of service 🇬🇧

The Attorney General hosted a visit of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General @VenediktovaIV last week to continue discussions between the UK and Ukraine to help ensure Russia is held to account for its actions.

I am not surprised that the French CRS gassed Liverpool fans. I’ve attended the stadium twice to watch England play rugby. There was no crowd trouble but the CRS were rapping batons on their shields as we left, gagging to batter us, they’re out of control. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/05/28/champions-league-final-kick-off-delayed-severe-fan-congestion/
In an exclusive with @pavlovictoday straight talking @kevinolearytv makes news on several accounts revealing his message for @POTUS
O’Leary also reacts to @SenWarren attack on #crypto.
He tells me why he supports @elonmusk mandate to open up Twitter
Lovely to be invited to Hugglescote Community Primary School today to help celebrate the platinum jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
What a wonderful street party atmosphere bringing back memories of the Silver Jubilee in 1977.
‘This is sending out the wrong message to businesses, we’re effectively bringing in socialist policies.’
Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen criticises measures brought in by Rishi Sunak to tackle the cost of living crisis.

Soulsby is not only holding back Leicester, he’s also blocking a devolution deal for Leicestershire and the East Midlands. The people of our city and county deserve better.
More bad news for the Leicester textile industry serving the fast fashion retailers.
We are introducing a temporary, targeted Energy Profits Levy charged on profits of oil and gas companies at a rate of 25%.
We're also building in a new investment allowance that doubles the relief for the energy companies that invest their profits in the UK.
🚨 Last night, Labour & the Lib Dems voted against our Public Order Bill to stop dangerous protest tactics.
🚑 Rather than side with law abiding majority, they chose a selfish minority blocking roads and emergency services.
Once again Labour's anti-Brexit propaganda does not align with the facts, U.K. inflation is lower than the EU and the Euro area. https://order-order.com/2022/05/23/labours-inflation-attack-ads-fact-checked/
Ian is spot on!
Fraud is the fastest growing crime in the UK, it needs to be stopped. White collar fraud is a very serious crime indeed it is not a victimless crime and it corrupts organisations.
"Anyone who has been a victim of fraud will know how damaging the financial and emotional impact can be" -Work and Pensions Secretary @theresecoffey
Our #FightingFraud Plan will deter, disrupt and detect fraudsters attempting to exploit the welfare system https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-benefit-counter-fraud-plan-set-to-save-taxpayer-2-billion
What happened to Ms A should not have happened to any Member of Parliament’s staff, she deserves justice.

Given the current level of inflation, benefits and pensions should be increased by at least part of the annual inflation related increase due next April.
The recipients of these benefits and pensions need the support now to cope with rising prices.
Was it 6? 15? or 20? It's incredible that Sir Keir doesn't know. The attendance of business meetings with political leaders is usually strictly controlled, social events less so:
Top scoop from @NatashaC: Labour preparing for 20 police questionnaires… first there were 6 .. then 15 … now:
I am backing our brave police by making it easier for officers to use stop & search powers to drive down knife crime, arrest more suspects, & seize more weapons, with over 50,000 removed since 2019, ultimately saving more lives.
We are taking action to make our streets safer 👇🏽
Today I have confirmed my Department will bring all overseas aid spending in China to an end. Last year, this was around £13m
We'll work with China to tackle global challenges, but we can make a bigger difference spending UK aid where it is more needed
Would it be too much to expect that @uniofleicester actively condemn this type of behaviour by their employees?
Last night I spoke in the Queen's Speech debate about repaying the debt we owe to our young people after the pandemic, it is one of the most important challenges that we face as a country.
