@Conservatives MP for Bassetlaw 🏹 I had a wheelbarrow, the wheel fell off🌳 No DMs please. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Russia is stirring violence and secessionism in Bosnia & Herzegovina to undermine and destabilise the region.
We are answering the call from our friends to help protect the hard-won peace.
We are stepping up our support for Bosnia & Herzegovina against Russian threats.
UK experts in counter-disinformation and defence will work with the Bosnian Armed Forces and @NATO to uphold peace and security in the country.
Why does @MayorofLondon @SadiqKhan blame the Govt for crisis in #MetPolice which is now in 'special measures'. He's been in charge of force for 6 years. Buck stops with him
Well done @scullyp. As a former Post Office counter clerk myself I know a lot of people will be very grateful for your intervention on this issue.
Today I can confirm we are providing £19.5m as an interim compensation to members of the GLO – the 555 – who brought the first legal action against the Post Office over Horizon.
Must have been referring to the drop goal from Bradford Bulls’ Paul Deacon in the 2003 Grand Final against Wigan Warriors (I have a testimonial shirt in my collection) 🏉💪🏻
Mix-up by Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries during speech at a Rugby League World Cup event in St Helens.
“I’ve always quite liked the idea of rugby league - my long-standing memory is that 2003 drop-goal. We were drinking Bloody Marys at the time. Wow, what a moment that was.”
I’m grateful to 🇬🇧 Prime Minister @BorisJohnson for allocating an additional £1 billion for security assistance to Ukraine. 🇬🇧 is our true friend and strategic partner. We appreciate the consistent, leadership support for 🇺🇦 in countering Russian aggression.
The facts. An excellent summary of local changes to healthcare organisation. Such a shame the district council leader has again tried to misrepresent this for personal gain. We’ve heard it all before duck. #nhs #bassetlaw #nottinghamshire

🥇GREAT BALLS OF FIRE!!!🔥 Congratulations to #Retford’s Will Barker who has won GOLD at the Dance World Cup in San Sebastián, Spain representing England 🏴 in the Mini Solo Jazz & Show Dance (boys) class.
You did us proud! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Great news for the East Coast Mainline, especially after the disruption from strikes and Monday’s signal cables theft #retford #bassetlaw
As union bosses waste time touring television studios, I'm getting on with the job at hand and modernising our railway.
This £1bn investment will replace outdated Victorian infrastructure with cutting edge digital signalling on the East Coast Main Line.
Today marks a crucial milestone in delivering on our promise to the British public to take back control of our borders.
These new measures coming in force will help us crack down on abuse of the system & evil people-smugglers.
Putting our #NewPlanForImmigration into action 🇬🇧
#WGT is back! Auditions are taking place this summer at @WorksopTownFC. Email us to apply for a place in our 6th show, on Friday, November 11th. ⭐️

Not to worry @snb19692, the EU Parliament shop sells these 🤣🇪🇺🔊 Not sure what that is in pounds though ££££££
Anti-Brexit/anti-Tory protester Steve Bray’s pair of amplifiers has been seized by police. No arrests.
It’s important no stone is left unturned as we aim to identify potential defectors to @UKLabour.
Tonight @HouseofCommons has backed the NI Protocol Bill.
It provides practical solutions to problems caused by the Protocol and protects the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement.
While a negotiated outcome remains our preference - the EU must accept changes to the Protocol itself.
The UK is seen by people across the West as the G7 country that has responded best to the Ukraine crisis.

Data: @kekstcnc survey of G7 countries, for @MunSecConf
Quite disappointed and indeed embarrassed to listen to a few of the Labour MPs who really have NO knowledge or understanding of part of the U.K. - ie Northern Ireland. But then @UKLabour don’t put up candidates at elections there so don’t really care #hypocrisy
𝗪𝗘𝗟𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗘 𝗕𝗔𝗖𝗞 𝗥𝗬𝗔𝗡 𝗛𝗜𝗡𝗗𝗟𝗘𝗬
We’re delighted to announce former Worksop Town & Hallam FC Manager but most importantly Badgers Legend, Ryan Hindley as the new manager of Retford United.
When somebody asked us to join the party we thought it was one with curry and beer. Apologies @UKLabour for the misunderstanding and we won’t be defecting afraid #RedWall
Great to welcome Parliamentary Under Secretary of State @Lee4NED to #Retford and #Worksop to speak to constituents, business owners and local officials about the future of business and skills in #Bassetlaw and some of the work already underway.
Pleasure to visit Worksop and Retford a few weeks ago with the excellent @Bren4Bassetlaw to discuss support for business & industry, how to build skills for the future and to learn more about the fantastic work underway in North Nottinghamshire by Brendan and colleagues
Quite a few people asking “where’s the evidence” of antisemitism in High Peak Labour. I’m glad you asked. Let’s take a quick look, shall we?
Former MP and sitting councillor Ruth George is the most noteworthy.
Well done again @nottspolice 🚔

This made me laugh 🤣🇬🇧📰
On the back of this abolish the Lords story I'm hopeful that @Andrew_Adonis puts out another message to his @euromove pals complaining how @Daily_Express is trying to silence him 😂 https://twitter.com/DavidPBMaddox/status/1541363792155746304

Boris Johnson: Women cannot be born with a penis https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2022/06/26/boris-johnson-women-cannot-born-penis/
Very sorry to hear you’ve had to go through this @bindelj. An outrageous attack on freedom of speech and the basic rights anybody would expect to enjoy. You would receive a warm welcome in #Bassetlaw however and we’d love to host you at some point in the near future! 📚
You can watch the interview with @margarethodge at 12.35 today on @GBNEWS Fight against anti-Semitism in Labour is my proudest achievement.
We will also be joined live by @Bren4Bassetlaw and @CatMcKinnell https://www.gbnews.uk/news/fight-against-anti-semitism-in-labour-is-my-proudest-achievement-says-dame-margaret-hodge/325128
25 years ago today, I saw Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in a bookstore (Waterstones, Prince's Street, Edinburgh) for the very first time. It was one of the best moments of my life. Thank you, @BloomsburyBooks, for taking a chance on a total unknown. 1/2
So, it turns out Durham Police, far from not doing retrospective fines, have issued 100 of them
No wonder @Keir_Starmer took so long over his questionnaire & took expert legal advice about completing it
We don’t have guest speakers being cancelled because of all this woke nonsense at my old library in Wilford. Admittedly that’s because the Labour council decided to close it and there isn’t one now 🥀
It’s not as though cllrs have anything better to do right now of course... 💷
Read our statement on why we are not allowing an event to go ahead at one of our libraries today here: https://www.mynottinghamnews.co.uk/statement-on-aspley-library-event-cancellation/
@MyNottingham A library banning a woman writer with a history of writing about women's rights. How very progressive.
On Armed Forces day I just want to say thank you to all the men and women serving the UK across the world and to all the veterans who served this country so well in the past. Your professionalism and dedication to duty is an inspiration.

We are very proud to support 2022 #Pride Month as you might be able to tell from one of our recent Teams meeting!
June is Pride month every year but this year marks 50 years since the first Pride event in the UK.
When I came to Parliament I promised to hold those accountable who conducted witch-hunts against U.K. Veterans. That promise was always professional and personal; I referred Phil Shiner to the National Crime Agency and he will now appear in court on Monday https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/06/24/disgraced-human-rights-lawyer-phil-shiner-faces-fraud-charges/
Staying active is so important. That's why I'm pleased to announce that the £320m PE and sport premium will continue for another year, so that more schools like @floragardensw6 can offer their pupils enriching sporting opportunities ⚽🎾🏀🏈
A bit of context when looking at the bigger picture. You also have to say that, in the current climate, 36% after 12 years in opposition is atrocious.

LAB: 36% (-2)

Conservative MP Brendan Clarke Smith told #5LiveBreakfast he believes his party can win back the lost by-election seats at the next general election ⬇️
The Lib Dems won in Tiverton and Honiton whilst Labour reclaimed Wakefield.
To be brutal, Labour’s win in Wakefield by-election was not good enough to put Keir Starmer on course to win next general election
Sad to see @OliverDowden one of our Party Co-Chairmen stand down.
As the PM says, he understands his disappointment in the by-election losses.
They don’t tell you much about how GE’s pan out. We lost 15 by-elections between 1979 & 1992 but went on to win in 1983, 1987 & 1992.
"It's perfectly normal" for a governing party to lose midterm by-elections, says Conservative MP Brendan Clarke-Smith, adding he's confident the Tories can win back Wakefield and Tiverton at the next general election
Out in Wakefield with @Bren4Bassetlaw for polling day today, helping @cllrnadeemahmed the only real local candidate
Only the Conservatives will continue to get things done and deliver for Wakefield.
🗳 Use your vote. Polls close at 10pm tonight.
What a load of utter nonsense from the LibDems - this is our hardworking @Conservatives 5am dawn team - almost 4x as many @Conservatives volunteers out bright & early in the #TivertonandHonitonByElection https://twitter.com/DavidParsley50/status/1539901350527606785
Tiverton and Honiton: Despite call to arms from local Tory chairman, not a single Conservative supporter shows up for 5am push for votes, but Lib Dem activists are up bright and early.

Today, I will table legislation that will give employers the freedom to recruit skilled, temporary staff to plug vital roles during strike action.
This new law will help protect the British public from future disruption caused by militant trade unions👇🏿
I was delighted to welcome former US Ambassador to the UN @NikkiHaley to the @UKHomeOffice today.
We covered a whole range of issues and found a great deal on which to agree – including the importance of strong 🇬🇧🇺🇸 relations to protect the shared values our nations hold dear.
I’ve arrived in Rwanda for CHOGM to address global challenges, from hunger to climate change, and to turbocharge trade with some of the world’s most dynamic economies.
With our shared values, history and language – the Commonwealth is a unique and vital association.
Not often I share Kevin’s posts, but he’s certainly right on this. When their own MPs are standing up at PMQs with comments more directed at their own side than ours and are openly defying them to picket then you know the Labour leadership have a serious problem.
Mick Whelan is chair of Tulo, the Labour Parry organisation bringing affiliated unions together, as well as Aslef.
Starmer banning frontbenchers going on RMT picket lines is creating internal havoc for zero public gain. https://twitter.com/MickWhelanASLEF/status/1539694314242056192
Spoke to @Otkachenkoua this afternoon to discuss the Eurovision Song Contest. We remain 💯 supportive of our friends in Ukraine being given the opportunity to host Eurovision next year, and demonstrate to the world the enduring richness of Ukrainian culture and creativity.
I will always stand with our Jewish communities, whose safety is a priority to this government.
Great to speak with the teams at @CST_UK this morning to discuss the support we’re providing them via the Jewish Community Protective Security grant & meet the charity’s volunteers.
Our modern Bill of Rights will strengthen the UK tradition of freedom of speech, and better protect the public from dangerous criminals.
We are restoring a health dose of common sense into the justice system. ⤵
