Theres loads on at today’s @birminghamcg22 #commonwealthgames Festival at the Dell Stadium in Brockmoor. Everything from fencing and cricket to bmx and climbing. Great activities for the kids, and big screen to watch the sport!
So who won the debate? 🤚
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.

“@RishiSunak has refused to embark on Corbyn-style, debt-fuelled expenditure. Guided by the principles of Thatcherism, he has commendably set out plans to ensure that this generation pays its own way, rather than saddling the next with greater debt.” 👇 https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/08/03/rishi-sunak-candidate-who-understands-thatcherite-economics/
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
Great to be out and about at family fun and summer events in Netherton, Brierley Hill and Kingswinford over the weekend.
Rev Richard Hackett was a particularly good sport in the 'Splat a Vicar' feature at St Andrews Vicarage!
GOOD LUCK #Lionesses 🙋🏼♂️ https://twitter.com/Lionesses/status/1553629754506584064
THE #WEURO2022 FINAL IS HERE! 🤩
Green belt land is extremely precious in the UK.
We’ve seen too many examples of local councils circumventing the views of residents by taking land out of the green belt for development, but I will put a stop to it.

What a performance, what a result, and what an atmosphere. Can’t wait for Sunday. Kids are buzzing! Good luck @lionesses
Good luck to our #Lionesses in the semi-final of the Women's Euro tonight! 🦁⚽️
“Levelling up should mean no matter where you grow up you have fantastic opportunities to fulfil your potential, and you also have enormous pride in the place you call home”

.@RishiSunak helped pass the #NationalSecurity & Investment Bill. This gives us the powers to block investments which pose a security threat or risk to our country. That is in the best interests of 🇬🇧 defence. #Ready4Rishi @Ready4Rishi #BBCOurNextPM #LeadersDebate #ReadyForRishi
The top priority has to be to get inflation down. Otherwise interest rates soar, pushing families into negative equity and losing their homes, and the business investment that we need plummets #BBCOurNextPM #Ready4Rishi
Incredibly sad news that David Trimble has died. A brilliant statesman and dedicated public servant, his legacy as an architect of the Good Friday Agreement will live on forever. The people of the UK owe him an immense debt of gratitude for all he achieved for our Union.
After a brief detour to Dudley town centre, the Queen’s Baton Relay returned to Dudley South last night, with stages going past Brierley Hill war memorial and through the High Street, before finishing the day at the Waterfront.
I’m standing to be the next leader of the Conservative Party and your Prime Minister.
Let’s restore trust, rebuild the economy and reunite the country. #Ready4Rishi

“He supported our leaving the EU from the start when it was not propitious for his career – a leaver by conviction rather than convenience.”

Just 4 days until @Birmingham2022 - the biggest multi-sport event ever to be held in the West Midlands - and it’s great to welcome the Queen’s Baton Relay to Dudley South. #QBR2022 @birminghamcg22
Rishi’s 10 point plan for immigration is full of common sense measures to take back control of our borders.
He is best placed to beat Labour and win the next election.
I have huge respect for both candidates but, having spoken to both @RishiSunak is the best to tackle inflation, secure Brexit, increase opportunities for people growing up in Dudley South and then beat Keir Starmer. Back Rishi’s campaign at http://Ready4Rishi.com #Ready4Rishi
The next round of voting for the leadership of our Party and country tales place this afternoon. Whoever is successful will have to get to grips with difficult global challenges we are facing from day one. We have some excellent candidates, here is what I want from our next PM

Happy Black Country Day.
It’s 10 years since Gracie Sheppard’s design was chosen as our flag, and what a difference it’s made to our common identity as the Black Country! #BlackCountryDay
To Conservative MPs who have not yet made up your minds who to support, please read my article about why I back @sajidjavid
And to MPs who have already chosen - there's still time to change your minds and join @TeamSaj
I’m with @TeamSaj.
@sajidjavid has the combination of experience, ability, judgment and integrity - as well as the plan to strengthen the economy and cut taxes - that we need.
He is up to the challenges that Britain and the world faces, and would make a great Leader and PM.
The next Conservative leader needs to be able to unite the party and win an election.
The next Prime Minister needs integrity, experience, and a tax-cutting plan for economic growth.
That's why I'm standing. Join @TeamSaj
Yesterday morning I met with the Chief Whip to tell him that I could no longer support the PM. Many others have also advised him to stand down. He must follow it so that the country can get the leadership it needs.
A real pleasure to open the Pens Meadow Summer Fete this afternoon!
Well done to all the staff and volunteers involved 👏
Well done to all of staff, governors and parents at Brockmoor Primary who helped put on such a fun and enjoyable Summer Fete today!
Great to join @kfordbritishlegion, Morrisons Community Champion and Cllr Shaz Saleem for Armed Forces Day fundraising at Morrisons Kingswinford this morning.
The team are here till 3pm today.
The event is completely free to attend, so please get in touch with my office if you would like to book a place for your local charity or group 👇 ✉️ ☎️
Frankie (our new family rescue pup) had a fantastic time at the Oakfield Community Centre Over 60s group jubilee party!
Well done to Dawn, Bill and all the team for putting on such a fantastic party! 🇬🇧 👑

Bring High Oak Surgery back to Pensnett!

Really great to welcome @NigelHuddlestonMP to the new Stourbridge Glass Museum. Our glass-making heritage in Wordsley, Brierley Hill & Stourbridge isn’t just something to be proud of locally, but also something that can be celebrated more widely across the region and the country.
Gutted to have been sanctioned by Putin’s vile regime in Russia 🤦♂️ Apparently I’m not allowed to go on holiday to Russia this summer. Not sure that this will damage Ukraine’s valiant resistance as much as Putin imagines.
94 days until @birminghamcg22 Commonwealth Games open and there are thousands of jobs in security, catering, hospitality, logistics, and cleaning.

Happy Orthodox Easter to everybody celebrating today, but particularly those in Ukraine who are onserving the festival in such difficult circumstances this year.
The government must do everything it can to deal with the cost of living challenges faced by people in the UK.
That’s what the Prime Minister told MPs tonight and he was completely right.
Together we will get on with the job and focus on the people’s priorities.
A very Happy Easter to everybody celebrating in #DudleySouth and beyond. The Lord is risen.
It was a pleasure to be at the official opening of @WHEFC new church building last weekend ahead of the start of Holy Week.
This new build has been a long time in the making, and the end result is a true testament to the passion of all involved.
Rules same for everybody and penalties must be same for everybody. Police hv issued fines and those fines hv been accepted & apologies made. UK’s interests best served by PM getting on with job and addressing urgent challenges here & abroad, not by long party leadership contest.
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
At a handshake distance. @BorisJohnson and @ZelenskyyUa walked through the center of Kyiv and talked to ordinary Kyivans. This is what democracy looks like. This is what courage looks like. This is what true friendship between peoples and between nations looks like.
The Kingswinford Methodist Church Coffee Morning meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. They're a really great chance to enjoy a cuppa, cake and chat with others - and it was especially good to speak with newer members of the group who said how welcome they felt!
