Watch @GregHands expertly, if gruesomely, disembowel @EmilyThornberry’s hypocrisy on trade. Labour really is a disgrace on this issue.
“While Liz Truss has many qualities, her plans now comprise of £60 billion of unfunded spending – and her message of reassurance about the associated inflationary risk is uncomfortably reminiscent of the missteps of the Ted Heath government”. Nigel Lawson👇https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/08/03/rishi-sunak-candidate-who-understands-thatcherite-economics/
A good education is the closest thing we have to a silver bullet when it comes to making people’s lives better.

Sir Keir is on holiday. I have no problem with that at all.
But why, from the sun lounger, put out a press release attacking the PM…for being on holiday?
Britain is facing the worst cost of living crisis in a generation.
Has anyone seen the government? 🧐

We welcomed @GregHands yesterday offering the opportunity to hear from Black Country businesses, visiting @robinsonbro_ltd and Kew Technology.
Alongside @andy4wm @WestMids_CA @mikejwood we launched the West Midlands Industrial Energy Taskforce - details on this to follow soon!
✅ I am the Energy Minister and the report is mainly about…energy.
✅ I joined the Government in 2011. I don’t feel very “junior”.
Bit odd to have a junior minister from the Business department responding to the news on TV rather than the Chancellor
The government is providing direct support to millions of people to help them with their energy bills this winter.
Find out more👇🏽
Great call today with Czech 🇨🇿 Energy Minister @JozefSikela.
Our third such meeting in 2022 and great to catch up on:
✅the work of the Czech EU Presidency in the vital area of energy.
✅ action to support Ukraine 🇺🇦 .
✅ European energy security .
✅ new nuclear in 🇨🇿
Yesterday I visited KEW Projects in West Brom who have received a share of £5m government funding for H2BECCS tech, producing hydrogen from biomass, while capturing CO2.
These funds will help develop this new technology in the UK, boosting green jobs and encouraging investment.
We know that this is a worrying time, with the pressure of rising costs.
That's why we're providing £37 billion of help for households.
This includes £400 off energy bills this winter and £1,200 of direct support for the most vulnerable.
When I first started as Chancellor I put up a photo of Nigel Lawson in my office.
Now he's endorsing me to be Prime Minister and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Very heavyweight endorsement for Rishi from Nigel Lawson himself:
Rishi Sunak is the only candidate who understands Thatcherite economics
Maggie was right. So was Nigel Lawson (greatest tax cutter ever). Tens of billions in unfunded tax cuts fuelling inflation will cost us the next election. We CAN get taxes down but must be delivered responsibly. Time for @RishiSunak #Ready4Rishi https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/08/03/rishi-sunak-candidate-who-understands-thatcherite-economics/
Brilliant from Nigel Lawson.
“The country will not forgive our great party if we forget the importance of sound money and let inflation run rampant”
He’s right. #Ready4Rishi
You know what sits on the intray.
You know the challenges our country faces at the moment, whether it’s with our public services, getting our economy growing, the inflation challenge and the cost of living.
I will grip all these things from day one.
I will do whatever it takes to keep our country safe.
In The @Telegraph today: 13 Welsh politicians (including three former Welsh Secs) write to back Rishi Sunak ahead of tonight's hustings in Cardiff.

Having Chaired the selection for Richmond in 2014, this assessment from @WilliamJHague is spot on - @Ready4Rishi is the man for the moment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAgtEPZW9L8
A pleasure to be with you and @andy4wm and @mikejwood!
Important to understand the energy challenges facing Black Country & wider West Midlands industry at this time.

Today's announcement has been welcomed by Energy Minister @GregHands “Developing a thriving UK low carbon hydrogen sector is a key part of our government’s plan to build back better with a cleaner, greener energy system"
Great to visit @robinsonbro_ltd chemicals today in West Bromwich.
Thanks to Adrian Hanrahan and the team for the tour of the site.
Energy use, rising costs & carbon footprint were key questions.

Great local news as tickets for September’s Chelsea History Festival are now on sale!
It’s been a brilliant event in recent years!

A thread on regional pay:
Cutting public sector pay outside London is a bad idea
In places like Suffolk, it’s hard enough to recruit nurses, teachers & police without cutting their pay compared to London.
This is levelling DOWN not levelling UP.
The best candidate to beat Labour is @RishiSunak
He’s also the best candidate to manage the economy in choppy waters.
That’s why my constituents are overwhelmingly #ready4rishi @Ready4Rishi https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/rishi-sunak-ipsos-poll-lead-over-liz-truss-conservative-tory-leadership-race-b1015874.html
