I’ve arrived in Rwanda for CHOGM to address global challenges, from hunger to climate change, and to turbocharge trade with some of the world’s most dynamic economies.

With our shared values, history and language – the Commonwealth is a unique and vital association.

Great to speak at the @ConservativeMF's Platinum Jubilee afternoon tea today, commemorating the life and service of Her Majesty the Queen.

Through her reign, she has brought a worldwide community together 🎂


Families are facing global cost of living pressures. Labour's response? Backing today's rail strikes.

Their union friends admit it will cost families, yet Labour won't condemn it 👇

Every single day, members of the Armed Forces work around the clock to keep the UK and our allies safe.

On #ArmedForcesWeek, we salute their service.

A series of bad calls, and backing the strikers over the strivers this week shows that Starmer is definitely not on your side.

✍️ My piece in todays ⁦@TheSunOnSunday⁩


🔴 Britain’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been the best of all the leading western powers, according to a international poll.

In all Britain has donated an estimated £2.1 billion in aid to Ukraine since the Russian invasion https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2022/06/18/britains-response-ukraine-best-western-powers/?utm_content=telegraph&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1655573680

Keir Starmer has spent 11 days refusing to condemn the rail strikes. On Wednesday he ordered his MPs not to take a stand against the militant unions.

Now we know why: In private, he's backing the strikes which will grind the country to a halt.


@BorisJohnson and @ZelenskyyUa are shown a car with “children” clearly marked on it, with bullet holes in the the windscreen. Deliberate targeting of 🇺🇦 civilians by 🇷🇺

⏱ In just 4 days, Labour's Strikes will prevent doctors, nurses and patients getting to hospital.

🥀 Instead of backing the NHS, Labour are backing strike chaos.

Great to address aspiring @Conservatives parliamentary candidates this evening- an amazing group of people from all walks of life.

Lib Dems are going around rural communities, conveniently leaving out the fact they're in favour of massive new green taxes, and taking us back into the bureaucratic nightmare of the Common Agricultural Policy.

Why aren't they honest with voters? #PMQs

Coming to your travel app this summer, courtesy of Labour 👇

Whether by rail, bus or car, Labour and Sadiq Khan are set to pitch London into chaos this summer. Help us #StopLaboursStrikes

Wonderful to meet
#HelenHurford our @Conservatives candidate @TivHonTories by-election on June 23rd. Having seen Helen in action there is no doubt she is a💥BRILLIANT💥candidate & will definitely deliver for #Tiverton & #Honiton #VoteConservative

"We owe an enormous debt to the British forces and to the Merchant Marine. We honour them all." - Margaret Thatcher, 14 June 1982

We remember and thank the British Armed Forces personnel who liberated the Falkland Islands - defending the islanders freedoms.

#Falklands40 🇫🇰🇬🇧

Really good to spend time yesterday with @cllrnadeemahmed, our great @Conservatives candidate at the Wakefield by-election at the Wakefield Trinity Rugby ground. Familiar ground for Nadeem - we discussed the proud history of the club and the great work it does in the community.

Families are facing global cost of living pressures. Labour's response? Backing national rail strikes.

Great to be supporting fantastic candidate Helen Hurford in Tiverton & Honiton today.

Born & raised there, a headteacher for many years, started her own business, and a Deputy Mayor- all in Tiverton & Honiton.

For an amazing local MP, vote Helen Hurford 🗳

We're tackling the rising cost of housing.

By extending the right-to-buy scheme to housing associations, a further 2.5 million households will be eligible to purchase their own home.

We're reviewing access to mortgages so those in 'Generation Rent' can become 'Generation Buy'.

#OnThisDay in 1983 Margaret Thatcher won a landslide election victory over Michael Foot, returning to parliament with a majority of 144 seats.

That sensational victory would allow her to continue changing our country for the better 🇬🇧📈

Exams are underway for the first time in two years. Over this period young people have shown incredible resilience.

It would be a crying shame if rail unions were to actively prevent some pupils from travelling to their exams later this month just to suit their political ends.

Days of strikes promised: 0
Days of strikes delivered (so far): 24

Were you stuck in commuter chaos this morning? That's Sadiq Khan's London.

I will be voting for Boris Johnson in the confidence vote tonight.

He’s demonstrated real leadership in getting the big calls right as PM - Brexit, vaccines, reopening and Ukraine.


Enjoyed taking part in the beacon lighting at Woodcock Hill in Borehamwood – kicking off a packed weekend of festivities to pay tribute to Her Majesty's seven decades of service.

It is always wonderful to come together with the local community to mark these occasions!

The UK has been sanctioning Putin, his regime and his enablers for 100 days.

Our sanctions are working – disrupting the Russian economy and degrading Putin’s war machine.


Yesterday was last day of #CultureRecoveryFund Board.

Its funded 5000+ theatres, cinemas, museums, buildings, railways and more.

Most saved were small local organisations - 70% outside London with big % in the north.

120,000 jobs saved.

Amazing work from the CRF team!

Without our tireless volunteers, the @Conservatives wouldn’t be the most successful electoral force in the world.

They are the backbone of our party, and this #VolunteersWeek I pay tribute to them 👏

Great read from ⁦@Ameet_Jogia⁩ On Harrow ⬇️

“People who have come to this country for a better start… who aspire to get on, work hard & act as advocates for education, family, entrepreneurship, & law and order. These are Conservative shared values” https://www.conservativehome.com/localgovernment/2022/05/ameet-jogia-let-us-replicate-our-success-in-harrow-across-the-country.html

We have extended pub and bar opening times until 1am over the Jubilee weekend as we come together to raise a glass to toast Her Majesty’s incredible service to our country over the past 70 years. Long may she reign! #PlatinumJubilee

Whilst @Conservatives are helping people with the cost of living @SadiqKhan is punishing drivers to bring in a whopping £450m to City Hall coffers.

London drivers can you afford Labour? 🥀
