Out canvassing with local Councillors in gloriously-sunny Uphill this morning. Thanks to everyone who spoke to us - and to the top canvass team too!

Our next Prime Minister has the opportunity to raise standards in public life for good. In my 5 point plan with @endcorruptionuk we can strengthen our democracy and enhance our reputation. Will @trussliz & @rishisunak both sign up for real change? http://johnpenrose.org/wp/2022/08/05/a-5-point-plan-to-reset-ethical-standards-in-government/

✅Really encouraging development>>>

@JohnPenroseNews offers new PM pragmatic 5 point plan to raise standards in public life to “strengthen UK democracy while enhancing Global Britain’s ability to fight corruption and promote good governance abroad”.

“Without that long-term cure we could be back here in a few months’ time. And again next year. And the year after that too” - wise words by @JohnPenroseNews.

Renewables produce cheap power. The power market is currently wired up so expensive gas sets the price. With £500 PER MONTH bills coming, speeding up market reform so people can pay lower renewable prices is a must. Good intervention from @JohnPenroseNews!

Energy crisis means bills are skyrocketing. The next PM must deliver urgent market reforms (in the same way vaccines were deployed) so cheap green energy savings show up on families' bills. @trussliz & @RishiSunak - will you fast track lower energy bills? https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1647788/energy-bills-rishi-sunak-liz-truss-overhaul-market

If only you took as much care over your original tweet. I have not joined the board of a USA health care firm; I used to be on the advisory board of a UK think tank, but a) I Ieft last year b) the members aren't bound by what it published c) I oppose a USA health system .....

Showing public we are serious about standards in public life isn’t just a necessary step for all political parties to win back voters’ trust. It’s also opportunity for @trussliz @RishiSunak to show they can reconnect with new voters who supported the party for first time in 2019.

Brilliant analysis by @SMFthinktank, @Siobhain_McCurrently and @JohnPenroseNews showing that the 'Poorest parents pay three times as much on childcare as the richest' https://www.smf.co.uk/poorest-parents-pay-three-times-as-much-on-childcare-as-the-richest-think-tank/

"Over half of part-time working mothers who wished to work more also said they needed affordable childcare to increase their hours." This is exactly how expensive childcare holds parents back and stops opportunities for levelling-up: https://londonlovesbusiness.com/poorest-parents-pay-three-times-as-much-on-childcare-as-the-richest/ @SMFthinktank

Great to see @JohnPenroseNews highlighting the role @Whitetail_CE could play in delivering #netzero and improving energy security, and to hear @AlokSharma_RDG emphasise UK support for this technology.

I've spoken to a Tory Minister today, who totally confirms what Susan Williams says. This minister is not a Mordaunt supporter. They won't go on the record because they think they will face a media shitstorm. They totally back up @PennyMordaunt in saying she never backed Self ID. https://twitter.com/SusanBaroness/status/1548428202816638978

Susan Williams @SusanBaroness

I feel compelled to issue a statement to challenge the factually incorrect representations put forward by leadership candidates in relation to @PennyMordaunt MP’s position and tenure at the Equalities Office.

.@GBNEWS asked whether @PennyMordaunt is ready to take on 'the toughest job in the country'. Absolutely she is! Here's why: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2U7RUTWzFA #PM4PM

Engaging, fresh, full of policy and with a strong sense of her own character. This @PennyMordaunt launch is the most impressive Tory leadership launch speech so far.

Big intervention from @PennyMordaunt, restoring family to the policy debate following last night’s Social Justice Caucus hustings.

💥Key @csjthinktank policies adopted:

- Family Hubs rolled out
- Cabinet minister for family
- Marriage tax allowance boost

ENERGY REPORT - Have you read our most recent research report? The current energy crisis is being felt across the world, and it's time for bold solutions. Read the full report by @John_Mills_JML, @JohnPenroseNews, @vincecable, and @SKinnock here: https://tinyurl.com/2w4cw3r4

I spoke with @OliverBullough on his @BBCRadio4 special about fighting corruption, the history of my former Anti-Corruption Champion role & whether we’re doing enough to stop dodgy money entering the UK... http://johnpenrose.org/wp/2022/06/22/john-joins-bbcs-oliver-bullough-to-discuss-problems-with-money-laundering-in-the-uk-and-how-we-must-tackle-it-long-term%ef%bf%bc/

BREAKING

GB News Political Correspondent Tom Harwood reports that Boris Johnson will resign today. The PM has spoken to the 1922 Committee Chairman Sir Graham Brady and agreed to stand down.

Lots of good stuff in the Govt’s energy plans, but most will take years to bear fruit & won’t fix sky-high energy prices today. We need faster solutions that could help hard-pressed families immediately, so here’s some I suggested in Parliament yesterday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niC7KdF0RRA

The public rightly expect government to be conducted properly, competently and seriously.

I recognise this may be my last ministerial job, but I believe these standards are worth fighting for and that is why I am resigning.

My letter to the Prime Minister below.

I'm sorry I've had to ask this of Ministers I deeply respect, but how many more of the seven Nolan Principles of Public Life are Number 10 going to have to breach before they stand up and say enough is enough?

What should the Government's long-term plan to reduce energy bills look like?

▶️Update the energy price cap
▶️Uncouple electricity bills from gas prices
▶️Modernise the electricity grid

More ideas from @ed_birkett & @JohnPenroseNews in @thetimes. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/chancellor-must-look-beyond-handouts-to-ease-pain-of-rising-energy-bills-6hnxjfhfz

This is dynamite. Honesty is 1 of 7 Nolan Principles of integrity in public life & at the core of the Ministerial Code so a) #10 not telling the truth is another serious breach & b) the PM's promised reset has no credibility because their behaviour hasn't changed at all.

Simon McDonald @SimonMcDonaldUK

This morning I have written to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards - because No 10 keep changing their story and are still not telling the truth.

We should let energy firms find new technologies for cheaper, greener electricity, so they take the risks of reaching net zero rather than politicians trying (& usually failing) to pick winners @ed_birkett @ukonward http://johnpenrose.org/wp/2022/07/05/the-times-chancellor-must-look-beyond-handouts-to-ease-pain-of-rising-energy-bills/
