Much longer forward to hear more of new S Times bestseller Femina from @DrJaninaRamirez our irrepressible President @GlosHistFest 12noon 17 Sep: book now http://www.gloucesterhistoryfestival.co.uk

I am an unashamedly intelligent woman. Boom 💥

Critics, including Rishi Sunak’s campaign and public sector unions, pointed out that the savings were possible only if all public sector workers were included, potentially cutting the pay of 5.7 million public sector workers in the poorest parts of the country by £1,500

Good to meet @Barclays Gloucester to discuss local trends. Given that local average salary is 28% less than national average regional pay for public sector workers would be a disaster. Another reason why @RishiSunak best suited to be next PM #Ready4Rishi

c4,000 residents saw New #Gloucester Festival of Archaeology Lego Roman Forum, medieval Westgate & bridge. City archaeologist @AndrewRPGlevum said citizens shaking fists here at white haired Consul was re ‘taxes, seagulls, bin collection, planning & the recent cyber attack’ 🤔

The leadership contest has always been much closer than the media realised. The Times , like Rishi, is catching up. The more people see him the more they agree with William Hague. Sunak only five points behind Liz Truss in new Tory poll The Times https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/rishi-sunak-just-five-points-behind-liz-truss-in-latest-tory-leadership-poll-0p2b8nppv

For 4 years I worked in William Hague’s team at the then FCO and greatly respected his judgement then - as I do his views on the decision before our Party’s membership now. In the crisis before us Rishi Sunak is the PM our country needs https://youtu.be/DAgtEPZW9L8

Quite an evening. Inspired English team, cool Dutch manager, strong German opponents, European trophy & player of tournament award from Prince William & lots & lots of celebration

Whether seeing artists in The Jolt @GloucesterCT, joining the 1st Phillipines Heritage Day, Jamaica’s 60th anniv service @GlosCathedral or @glosengtraining 2022 awards I’m honoured to celebrate culture innovation & diversity from young & old almost every day. This is #Gloucester

The politician David Trimble & the diplomat Christopher Meyer, both 78 when they died, were children of the war who made the case for what they believed in with humour and humanity. Lessons for us all. RIP

Very clear support for Levelling Up & why it matters from @RishiSunak - exactly the goals of our first & second #Gloucester LUF bids #ReadyforRishi

Ruth Davidson, Ben Houchen & Andy Street are stars in their parts of 🇬🇧 & all back Rishi. So do these Thatcherite veterans, and 5 out of us 6 MPs in #Gloucestershire. We all know he’s the right person to lead the UK through economic storms ahead. See BBC1 at 9pm #ReadyforRishi

All credit to colleague Sarah Atherton MP, whose report has led directly to 3 separate ⁦@DefenceHQ⁩ policies. These shd make a significant difference for servicewomen in our Armed Forces https://www.gov.uk/government/news/defence-demonstrates-significant-progress-made-for-women-in-the-armed-forces--2

Leaving Parliament on Thursday with Gloucestershire’s flag more or less (and rightly) centre stage, and the much walked on grass in Parliament Square a scorched dust bowl

Very proud of @Gloscol Zero Carbon project & progress on ground heat pump & solar panels, selling surplus energy to the Grid. Congrats to Matt Burgess & all involved inc @SalixFinance funding: I hope this will inspire other employers #Gloucester too

🗣️Targeted home insulation measures will help to reduce energy demand and improve energy efficiency.

Just imagine how difficult - impossible - such a vote of confidence would have been on the government led by the man every current Labour MP stood in GE2019 to see as Prime Minister - Jeremy Corbyn.

With MPs of all parties meeting Chairman of Presidency of Bosnia & Herzegovina Sefik Dzarferovic for update on tensions there: and signing book Remembering Srebrenica. If ever there was a time to remember peace & democracy can never be taken for granted, even in Europe, it is now

Several strong candidates to be our next leader & PM. I believe @RishiSunak has the values, experience and vision to lead the UK out of post COVID blues & inflation and back to growth & opportunity #Ready4Rishi

Latest report on water and sewerage co performance unacceptable. Govmt requirements on reducing storm overflows must lead to severe penalties w/o improvements. Pleased for #Gloucester that Severn Trent 1 of 3 cos to keep 4 star rating but impvmt still key https://www.gov.uk/government/news/water-and-sewerage-company-performance-on-pollution-hits-new-low

So proud of the Community Team HITZ programme led by Helen Chu at @gloucesterrugby & Fallon Barlow & Jay Denby’s achievements on inclusion & as volunteers. Congrats success #PremiershipRugbyCommunityAwards2022 in Parlmt - great day for #Gloucester: community is all

As the results of the first round of the leadership ballot emerge, y’day advice at Pimlico Tube Station seems made for politicians - thank you Orla & Team Pimlico for cheering every start to the day

.@KwasiKwarteng as Energy Min & now Sec of State has been supportive of more marine energy funding. It’s a legacy we need to build on for domestic green energy security, export potential and global energy need. We need further capacity to bring down prices like offshore wind asap

It may not be top political item but the results of first ever ringfenced marine energy pot in renewables auction is a turbine charged leap forward. The faster we increase capacity for twice daily power of tides the better for domestically sourced green energy 🌊

Outdoor Eid prayers & celebrations hours before a league game: Gloucester Cricket Cub at the heart of community and diversity https://www.facebook.com/100057724464355/posts/pfbid0CHUUdzNz2WzjwsHu42pLRxYP32ocSk3jLvtzdXZS3TkB5DaEPFDg4CgeNicM2wgWl/?d=n

The death by shooting of former Japanese PM Shinzo Abe is a sad reminder of the price of political service. Abe san was a remarkable leader whose response to deflation & belief in the Trans Pacific Partnership shows individuals can help shape the direction of nations. RIP

I resigned, after serving three Prime Ministers for 10 years as their Trade Envoy, earlier this morning. Trust is everything. To all my friends in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, more widely across ASEAN & in our missions there FCDO/DIT here simply an enormous thank you

Walked back to sleep last night past these ancient treasures, which have seen many leaders come & go. All of us - bar a few in denial - know the PM must stand down. Trust is too damaged now to be repaired

Great to connect Maldivian MP & Select Cttee Chair Rozaina Adam, one of only 4/87 female MPs & here on @WFD_Democracy visit with @HarrietHarman for her book on female MPs’ work globally. Rozaina spoke about her Domestic Violence Bill & more. WFD all about #ConnectWithPurpose

Announcement of wide UK package as key intnl partner for Ukraine’s eco recovery in Kyiv & host for the 2023 Ukraine Recovery Conference. Democracy / anti-corruption & transparent procurement agenda all areas where @WFD_Democracy can play a key role https://www.gov.uk/government/news/foreign-secretary-announces-major-uk-package-of-support-to-help-rebuild-ukraine

Welcoming Permanent Under Secretaries from Ministries of Foreign Affairs #ASEAN countries to Parliament with our Amb to ASEAN Jon Lambe. We stand where King Charles 1 was sentenced to death in 1649: part of 900 yrs of political drama Westminster Hall has witnessed

Crowded Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast with my constituent Pastor Robert. @revlesisaac said ‘we are called to serve not a party or a denomination but the common good..give hope a chance’. We must all keep that faith of hope

We are committed to growing the NHS workforce and compared to a year ago, we now have:

👉🏽 Over 4,000 more doctors
👉🏽 Over 9,600 more nurses
👉🏽 Over 25,900 more NHS staff

Thank you to all staff who are working hard to bust the Covid backlogs. 👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️

Strong presence in Gloucester #ArmedForcesDay2022 all services inc cadets @GlosPoppy, @HQARRC Brig Kevin Copsey & Gurkhas. Thank you organisers, stall holders @SoldiersofGlos & all who came to support & maybe join our Armed Forces (& to the rain for mostly staying away)

Train strikes this week are bad for everyone who travels for work, study or visit, as well as the staff of leisure/retail business. RMT union action damages our economic recovery & trust in rail travel. And no political party should be supporting such a national own goal

Since the Emperor Nerva’s urban regen from AD97 #Gloucester has been a Must Visit city. Masses of surprises old & mod. Join @GlosCivicTrust walking tour, visit @MuseumOfGlos @SoldiersofGlos @gloswaterways @GlosCathedral @LlanthonybyGlos Reserve the date: #GlosHistFest2022 3-18Sep
