This is a brilliant, beautifully written piece, Tomiwa. I kept looking for a “key paragraph” to clip and share on here, but every word deserves to be read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ https://twitter.com/tomowolade/status/1542040170135834625
For @unherd today, I have written a piece in defence of Philip Larkin and Seamus Heaney, and against decolonising the curriculum: https://unherd.com/2022/06/black-kids-should-study-larkin/
A very important series of points from @michelledonelan in the thread below. Unless university courses are of an appropriate quality they fail the taxpayer, our economy and (most importantly) young people alike. Government right to take a stand and not to be deterred. https://twitter.com/michelledonelan/status/1542173378685140992
(1/4) We need to do some mythbusting about the false claims that Government's quality proposals are behind Eng Lit course changes at @SheffieldHallam
This is fake news. The English courses at Hallam have outcome metrics well above the proposed minimums.
Impressive presentation by @TansyC at todays #housing2022 sharing our Collection with Care approach and our Just Spend It campaign. Also how we’ve used technology to transform our income collection service, freeing up colleagues to support customers. @walsallwhg @Voicescape_hc
Today @RSHEngland published a regulatory notice against @IDS_Housing for providing a poor repairs and maintenance service and being unresponsive to tenants' concerns.
If you live in social housing and have concerns about your landlord contact 👉@HousingOmbuds https://twitter.com/RSHEngland/status/1542063276472901634
We have found the @IDS_Housing repairs and maintenance service breached our standards and needs improving. It is working with us to resolve the issues.

Congratulations to all students who sat exams and assessments, we're wishing you the very best of luck with your results.
Very grateful to @SarahOwen_ for highlighting my recent "lovely interview" with The @BigIssue 💙
Having worked in the homelessness sector before I became an MP, I'm committed to ending rough sleeping.

Aston Villa Football Club has launched a pre-application planning consultation on the first phase of its long-term vision for Villa Park and the surrounding area. 🟣

OMG, what an amazing experience, presenting with the superb @TapsM7 at this years Chartered Institute of Housing #housing2022 on the importance of health and housing working together to reduce health inequalities and build resilient communities. @walsallwhg
I expect to be made redundant at Christmas, as part of the Civil Service 2025 plans to reduce headcount by 91,000. If you might have a use for me, please get in touch. DMs open, and please RT. Thank you. 4/4
This evasion from @UKLabour is ridiculous. We deserve answers. Do they support inflation-busting pay rises? If so, do they accept the inflationary effects? How do they propose to pay for them? And why do they refuse to condemn strikes causing massive disruption to the public? https://twitter.com/skynews/status/1541687824612835330
.@KayBurley: Would you support a doctor's strike?
Labour's @TulipSiddiq says she "supports a situation where we pay people properly", adding govt needs to meet with unions and doctors to decide a pay rise.

In a good natured session on Housing and Levelling Up in the @HouseofCommons today, I asked Housing Minister @EddieHughes4WN about preventing rough sleeping in the West Midlands.
Really pleased that the new and improved @ConHome site is now live - it provides all the same excellent content but faster, in a cleaner and more editorially flexible structure, and founded on more stable tech. https://www.conservativehome.com

We expect to achieve our ambition to get 500,000 people into work in our #WayToWork campaign this week. Our Work Coaches have smashed it. I talked to @edwardmalnick @Telegraph about how we've done it and why it's critical @DWP keep getting people into jobs https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2022/06/25/therese-coffey-claimed-benefits-three-times-becoming-mp/
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
A lovely sunny morning for today’s parkrun. Results have been processed and you should have your texts and emails shortly.
Massive thanks to everyone who volunteered. If you can help in future weeks, please let us know.
This is undoubtedly true. My own constituency (the old Langbaurgh) is a case in point: lost mid-term, won back by @Conservatives in 1992 when voters focused on which party they wanted in charge of their mortgage, their job security, their children’s school, national defence etc. https://twitter.com/SkyNews/status/1540226909044445187
'Midterm governments, post-war, lose byelections'
Prime Minister Boris Johnson says his government will "keep going", addressing the concerns of people, until "we get through this patch."

Today is International Women in Engineering Day 👩🏽🔬👩💻
We need more women like Nabilah, Sophie and the other fantastic undergraduate engineers I met today at the @Dyson Institute, to look to careers in engineering 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
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.
"We can't just accept rough-sleeping as a fact of life. We must seek to end it.. We need a system in place which prevents rough sleeping on the ground."
👏👏👏 A huge thank you to all our wonderful speakers for sharing their insights today. Thank you for making today possible - we could not have done it without you! @chloedeakin_ @ChauhanZahid @benpearson1987 @mattshrimper @christyacton @EddieHughes4WN @paula_harriott
Larkin and Owen are two of our finest poets. Removing their work from the curriculum is cultural vandalism.
Their work must be passed on to future generations - as it was to me. I will be speaking to the exam board to make this clear.
Listening to @EddieHughes4WN, minister for rough sleeping and housing, talking about his background working in the sector before becoming an MP - and now a forward look at joint working. #ImpactForum2022
Going from being homeless a few years ago to interviewing the mayor of the West Midlands and minister for rough sleeping and housing today about solutions for homelessness
Thats what we call growth- wish me luckkkkkkk 🤸♀️
Really good to be in Parl today with @Pedallingforpub raising funds for @LTCharity financial & mental health support for those working in sector and @apavementaway supporting jobs for homeless, veterans and ex offenders in hospitality - thanks to Minister & MPs for support
Vote for Helen Hurford in Tiverton and Honiton tomorrow and stick up for British food and farming.
The trouble with Starmer threatening his MPs who attended picket lines is the weakness of his own position on the strikes. “I told you to be indecisive and invisible, like me!”
🧵 I was bullied as a teenager. I am dyslexic and was overweight - seen as an easy target. Older kids thought I was too stupid to succeed, too fat to be taken seriously. (1/6)
Impossible to disagree with this assessment by @MrHarryCole. Condescending abuse of my colleague Nadine by Chris Patten is totally unacceptable. I know who is more in touch with this country and it’s most certainly not him. https://twitter.com/MrHarryCole/status/1539165401808089088

Always brilliant to see politicians in hard hats visiting fantastic new developments - here's Minster @EddieHughes4WN with our member @walsallwhg at their Lockside development https://twitter.com/walsallwhg/status/1537712235417591808
We're delighted to welcome @EddieHughes4WN to Lockside as we hit a key milestone in the development of the 252-home site.
We've just taken handover of our first #affordablehomes from developers @Lovell_UK and can’t wait to welcome customers moving into this new community. 🏘

Stafford and Rural Homes (now part of Housing Plus Group) were found to have fallen below standards residents should expect by @housingombudsman.
@michaelgove has written to them as we continue to name and shame social landlords who fail to provide quality housing and services. https://twitter.com/HousingOmbuds/status/1536997278413635585
We found severe maladministration for Stafford and Rural Homes (now Housing Plus Group) when dealing with a complaint about delayed repairs and a bedbug infestation. There were unacceptable delays at all stages of the complaint. Read more; http://ow.ly/rVUL50JxSWV
