The strikes today are wrong and unnecessary.
Mr President, Volodymyr,
It is good to be in Kyiv again.
Delighted to nominate our local NHS Digital Team for the Future NHS Award and even more delighted to hear they have succeeded in becoming the regional winners. Congratulations! 👏
Congratulations to @mpftdigital 👏 who are the regional winners of 'The Future NHS' #NHSParlyAward for improvements in reaching the digitally-excluded in their homes.
Well done to the whole team, a very deserving win! And thank you @ChrisPincher for the nomination.
On this day, 40 years ago, victory in the Falkland Islands was declared. The Union Flag once again flew over Stanley.
We owe each and every sailor, soldier, aviator and marine our thanks, and we pause to remember the 255 British personnel who did not return.
Check the result of the last parliamentary ballot in 2019 Robert. It was 51% https://twitter.com/Peston/status/1533905758345383936
This evening I will be backing the Prime Minister @BorisJohnson.
People do not want or vote for a divided team - we are at our best when united and focused on delivery for all across our nations. The PM has got the big calls right, let’s get on and level up across our country.
Our live blog has everything you need to know ahead of tonight's vote including how our MP @ChrisPincher is voting and his comments. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/live-updates-prime-minister-boris-24152874?121112=
I’m backing @BorisJohnson tonight.
He is the right person for the job. The British public will not forgive a divisive, lengthy and distracting contest when we should be focussing on delivering on the issues that matter to them.
A pleasure to visit Lloyds Transport in Tamworth on Friday and to talk to Martin and Nicola from the company, as well as to @RHANews about the industry, new skills and opportunities ahead 🚛
Also worth saying that the new Code increases the powers of the new Independent Adviser on Ministerial Interests.
Hate to be all earnest, but journalists and MPs saying the PM has watered the ministerial code down need to correct themselves - the expectation of resignation if ministers mislead parliament is clearly still there. He “hasn’t changed the rules mid-game”…
Yesterday we announced all households will receive £400 and millions of vulnerable households will get £1,200 of support this year to help with the cost of living.
Today we have launched a new website to help you find the support available to you, visit: http://www.gov.uk/costoflivingsupport
Alongside the action we’ve already taken this year today's measures will ensure:
The vast majority of households receive £550.
Pensioners receive £850.
And almost all of the eight million most vulnerable households will receive support of at least £1,200.
Fantastic to have Benjamin Culff from Tamworth in Parliament today to show Parliamentarians how lives are saved by AED’s.
His own personal story is testament to the vital importance of getting these lifesavers into our homes 🏡
🔥 QUEEN'S BATON RELAY COMES TO TAMWORTH 🔥
Today it has been confirmed that the relay for the Commonwealth Games will come through Tamworth on July 20th. Save the date in the diary and get ready to cheer it on!!
We’re delighted that Tamworth will welcome the @birminghamcg22 Queen’s Baton Relay this summer on July 20.
A number of stops and activities have been planned, including a free evening of entertainment in the Castle Grounds.

Happy VE Day! To mark this historic date, here are some fantastic photographs from our archives of Tamworth during World War II.
Do you have any memories from this time?

"I regard it as a badge of honour to have been sanctioned by the Putin regime. Putin is losing his war and I continue to stand with Ukraine,” says @ChrisPincher https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/a-badge-honour-tamworth-north-23801137
I regard it as a badge of honour to have been added to the Putin regime’s Sanction List.
Putin is losing his war. #IStandWithUkraine 🇺🇦

Brilliant to have a bit of Tamworth down in Parliament today for #StaffordshireDay.
MPs were delighted to meet @DraytonManor and @TamworthBrewing to find out what our town offers the county and the country 🇬🇧! Great event.
.@ChrisPincher remembers a friend — Robert Döry — and his favourite wine: Tokaji https://thecritic.co.uk/issues/april-2022/the-wine-of-emperors/
Too true Jacob. He had the chance and he ducked it. And he campaigned to put Corbyn into Downing St. He can’t hide from that.
Disappointing that @Keir_Starmer… who sat as Corbyn’s sidekick for years talking about “kinder gentler politics”…
didn’t use this opportunity to distance himself from Labour MPs who’ve called for Tory MPs to be lynched, and branded them as scum.
I will never be threatened into voting a certain way - this is not democracy @Keir_Starmer
These attacks have been used against me for a while. They resulted in death threats to me and my family. https://twitter.com/ChrisClarksonMP/status/1517054233358577665
It's quite extraordinary that Sir Keir has now resorted to threats.
The Labour Party has been using this dehumanisation strategy now for a while and it's dangerous. Colleagues routinely face intimidation and abuse as a result of this rhetoric. It's despicable and it has to stop.
Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a happy 96th birthday.
Will Keir Starmer come to the Commons and apologise? I feel sure he’ll want to do that.
Today I have written to The Speaker explaining how I believe @Keir_Starmer has misled the House of Commons
Happy World Heritage Day!
🏰 Tamworth Castle and motte have been classed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument since the 8th of February 1915. Scheduling is Historic England’s oldest form of heritage protection which began back in 1913.
We are taking bold action to tackle the vile people smuggling trade and fix our broken asylum system.
Lots of agreement coming into my Tamworth office supporting this bold action to fix our asylum system and stop the smuggling gangs.
We are taking bold action to tackle the vile people smuggling trade and fix our broken asylum system.
Our new partnership with Rwanda shows we can no longer accept the status quo.
People are dying and the global migration crisis requires us to find new ways to work in partnership.
It will deal a major blow to the evil people smugglers.
This is what it means 👇🏽
Today I've signed a world-leading new partnership with Rwanda to break the people smugglers' deadly business model and help us protect the genuinely vulnerable through safe and legal routes.
Part of our #NewPlanForImmigration.
David Lammy clearly failed his history GCSE. His history here is factually wrong. Perhaps he should ask to resit the interview.
"Churchill replaced Chamberlain just days before the Second World War, Lloyd George replaced Asquith weeks into Somme, Eden lost his job during the Suez crisis"
Shadow foreign secretary David Lammy says "there are always others" to replace Boris Johnson
Good reception on the doorstep in Fordhouses with @CllrSimonB and @ChrisPincher @MarcusWells_
Boris Johnson delivered a world beating vaccine programme. With Rishi he delivered a job/business saving programme (furlough etc) to keep our country afloat. He’s explained & apologised for No10 events. I accept that & back him. Let him get on with his job - what most people want
The PM has apologised again for spending 9 minutes in his office at 2pm as work colleagues came in and wished him a happy birthday (as reported in @thetimes the day after)
Now let’s let him get on with the job 🇬🇧👊 https://twitter.com/MrHarryCole/status/1513925825841803271
PM's supporters making case he was there for around 9 mins amid 20 other meetings that day.
Say he'd been on a visit that morning, came back and ate a salad between meetings while people sung happy birthday
So far, no Tory gunning for him despite opposition brown trousers.
The Chancellor @RishiSunak is getting on with his job ensuring the UK recovers from the pandemic.
The fact that @Keir_Starmer is having a pop at him via his wife is distasteful and desperate.
No great surprise but it shows @uklabour have nothing to say on policy. https://twitter.com/BBCPolitics/status/1512403849084026883
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer says questions over Rishi Sunak's wife's tax affairs “isn’t about attacking anybody – it is about basic accountability, basic transparency, basic fairness for those that are facing a real struggle with their family finances”
Fantastic result for the High Peak team and a great start to @Conservatives local election campaign.
COTE HEATH BY-ELECTION

LABOUR LOSE CONTROL OF HIGH PEAK COUNCIL
Well done to all the runners and organisers and especially to the winners. A great atmosphere at the finish line.
Great to see support from the mayors of Lichfield and Tamworth along with Tamworth MP @ChrisPincher at our annual Cathedral to Castle run today!
Only 69 Labour MPs in the chamber for PMQs… incredibly underwhelming support for @Keir_Starmer…
A Service of Thanksgiving for the life of The Duke of Edinburgh will be broadcast live from @wabbey tomorrow.
They’re no longer even “attempting”.
When did you stop attempting to be a serious news outlet? https://twitter.com/Independent/status/1506971861095231497
“As a town with a rich railway history and a strong present railway network, Tamworth would be an excellent place to lead this next era for Britain’s Railways," says @ChrisPincher
One of Starmer’s worst PMQs performances. Boris ate him alive.
I spoke to President @ZelenskyyUa to thank him for his address to the @HouseofCommons and to update him on our tough new sanctions against the Putin regime. We will tighten these to impose the maximum economic cost on Russia and are stepping up our military support to Ukraine.
The City of London leads the way in the effects of sanctioning Russian banks.
