Great to represent @WalesCWO and link up with some brilliant women and friends from across the UK at the @cwowomen summer reception πŸ”·οΈ

Thank you to @TomTugendhat @mimsdavies and @ChrisClarksonMP for coming along to support the CWO πŸ‘

πŸ’· What currency would Scotland use?
πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί Would they join the EU?
🏒 What would happen to the financial services industry in Edinburgh?
πŸͺ–What would happen to the military?

These questions, and many more go unanswered whilst the SNP spend Β£20m on yet another referendum campaign.

I’m grateful to πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Prime Minister @BorisJohnson for allocating an additional Β£1 billion for security assistance to Ukraine. πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ is our true friend and strategic partner. We appreciate the consistent, leadership support for πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ in countering Russian aggression.

The West African nations of Gabon and Togo join Commonwealth https://f24.my/8jOZ.T - a warm welcome to both! The Commonwealth is about shared future ambitions and ideals, not just past relationships πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡¬πŸ‡¬πŸ‡¦πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

We must support Ukraine to strengthen their hand in both the war and any future negotiations.

President @EmmanuelMacron and I agreed to step up our military support for Ukraine at this critical moment, and to enhance Anglo-French cooperation on defence and security.

We want veterans across πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ to transfer skills they've gained into fulfilling jobs once in civilian life.
It was great to meet @VeteransInto and employers to see how our funding will help them expand their successful training for veterans into HGV driver roles πŸš› #ArmedForcesWeek

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.

Obviously it’s a good night for Labour and the Lib Dems and a bad one for the Tories but historically, byelections tell us very little about subsequent general elections.
The Tories lost 15 seats at byelections between 1979 and 1992 but went on to win in 1983, 1987 and 1992.

The Ukrainian military have released possibly the best video of the conflict regarding Ukraine’s relationship with the UK.... just watch πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

We’ve provided Β£100k in funding to @VeteransInto to provide training for veterans into roles as HGV drivers

Today @SteveBarclay met with veterans working as HGV drivers and their employers in Manchester #EmployVeterans #SaluteOurForces

Complainant reaction to Ian Blackford statement:
β€œI’ve received no private apology from Ian, and was given no advanced sight of this public apology.
This is a publicity stunt by Ian in an effort to save his job....

β€œI don’t blame Starmer for reneging on any of this Left-wing nonsense” just as the most prominent agitator for a new leader, who is glossing himself in a faΓ§ade of socialism, would do - The Mail https://www.mailplus.co.uk/edition/comment/194288/once-again-starmers-proved-hes-nothing-but-a-policy-vacuum-in-human-form

About Β£16bn of taxpayers hard earned cash was spent supporting the railways and protecting railway workers jobs. It would have been the same whether public or private and many political leaders wanted more and harsher lockdowns for Β£bns more.

Perhaps we could pay rail workers a decent wage if billions hadn’t been shovelled into a bloated privatised railway during the pandemic.

Has the case for rail re-nationalisation ever been clearer?

The SNP Westminster Group are more focused on preventing leaks than preventing sexual harassment.

This cover-up-and-close-ranks culture must end.

That will only happen if Ian Blackford resigns.

'The public have paid 600 pounds per household to keep them in jobs, this is the way the union barons are thanking the public for all that money' says Grant Shapps - adding the strike is "unnecessary" and "should be called off".

Dame Kelly Holmes is a Tonbridge star and we’re very proud of her. She’s shown courage in uniform with @BritishArmy, on the track with @TeamGB so I shouldn’t be surprised she’s showing it again.

Keir Starmer has spent 11 days refusing to condemn the rail strikes. On Wednesday he ordered his MPs not to take a stand against the militant unions.

Now we know why: In private, he's backing the strikes which will grind the country to a halt.
