Good morning from Blackpool ! Looking forward to a jam-packed day ahead meeting @DCMS sectors at work across the North West.
Of course levelling up is about transport links and infrastructure projects. But it’s also about using culture to drive growth and regenerate towns and communities. It’s about bringing world-class art to every corner of the UK – and that’s exactly what @GrundyBlackpool does.
Earlier today I met with a group of people in Blackpool who have put themselves forward for a public appointment role.
They spoke to me about their experiences & their thoughts on how we open up @DCMS public appointments to people from every kind of background. (1/3)
25 years ago we made a promise to the people of Hong Kong.
We intend to keep it.
Delighted to host my friend, former US Secretary of State @MikePompeo at the @UKHomeOffice. Our nations stand shoulder to shoulder to uphold and respect our shared values and right now that could not be clearer than in our steadfast support for Ukraine against Putin’s aggression.
Great news: in less than six months we’ve supported half a million people into work.
Helping people find the security of a stable income, through a job they can take pride in, is one of the best ways for people support their families during these challenging times. https://twitter.com/dwppressoffice/status/1542455071228698625
We did it!
Over half a million people have been helped into work by the #WayToWork campaign in 5 months, with Jobcentre staff working hard to reach the target we set ourselves in January this year

Work is the best way to help people deal with global cost of living pressures.
This is a brilliant, beautifully written piece, Tomiwa. I kept looking for a “key paragraph” to clip and share on here, but every word deserves to be read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ https://twitter.com/tomowolade/status/1542040170135834625
For @unherd today, I have written a piece in defence of Philip Larkin and Seamus Heaney, and against decolonising the curriculum: https://unherd.com/2022/06/black-kids-should-study-larkin/
It’s important no stone is left unturned as we aim to identify potential defectors to @UKLabour.
This Government is making our streets safer by ensuring those guilty of heinous crimes get the punishments they deserve and spend longer behind bars to protect the public.
This is a shocking and barbaric attack on innocent civilians and my thoughts are with all those affected. https://twitter.com/dmytrokuleba/status/1541456349862690816
Large shopping mall in Kremenchuk with hundreds of civilians inside has been hit by a Russian strike. Russia is a disgrace to humanity and it must face consequences. The response should be more heavy arms for Ukraine, more sanctions on Russia, and more businesses leaving Russia.
The Guardian thinks the EU is dangerous.
Putin’s actions in Ukraine are creating terrible aftershocks, driving up energy and food prices across the world.
Global leaders need to come together to help Ukraine and make life easier for households across the world.
Nothing should be off the table. https://twitter.com/10DowningStreet/status/1541375179636473857
We must end Putin's stranglehold on grain which drives up global food prices, deprives Ukraine of revenue and puts millions at risk of starvation.
We will work with partners to end Russia's grain blockade and with Ukraine to repair vital railways.

Good to catch up with Commonwealth friends including India, Canada, Australia, Botswana, Bangladesh, Cyprus, Kenya, Jamaica, Singapore and Barbados. We are a network of nations who believe in sovereignty and democracy in the face of growing threats.
Huge thank you to the oncology and surgical teams at Guys Hospital.
Susie has had her operation and it went well. Still some treatment left to go but this is a big milestone passed. #breastcancer
This day in 2016 saw the greatest show of democracy in British history, with 17.4 million voting to leave the EU & take back control of our borders, laws & trade. We've ended free movement, introduced a points-based system & we will continue to deliver for the British people. 🇬🇧

Our modern Bill of Rights will strengthen the UK tradition of freedom of speech, and better protect the public from dangerous criminals.
We are restoring a health dose of common sense into the justice system. ⤵
Our new Bill of Rights will replace Labour’s Human Rights Act to strengthen free speech, deport more foreign offenders, & prevent early release of dangerous prisoners. It will make us freer and our streets safer.

Excellent weekend of campaigning with our fantastic @Conservatives candidate Helen Hurford joined by Foreign Secretary @trussliz

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

Sincere congratulations to the great friend of Ukraine @BorisJohnson on his birthday. In this difficult time for 🇺🇦, your massive support and strong leadership are invaluable. Many happy returns of the day!

To all the rubbish being spouted on twitter at the moment, Ukraine's fight against Russia is absolutely more important than the PM attending a conference of Red Wall Tory politicians. https://twitter.com/harryph/status/1537820307976859648
Putin's great hope is that the West will lose interest in Ukraine. Boris Johnson's visit to Kyiv today gave out a strong message that we will not. A powerful signal of solidarity which is a critical international priority. All those who believe in freedom should welcome it.
Mr President, Volodymyr,
It is good to be in Kyiv again.

From 14 July, 8 million households will receive a £326 cost of living support payment.
This is the first of two instalments – totalling £650 – with the second to follow in the autumn, and part of the overall £1,200 support package for vulnerable households this year.
Forty years since British soldiers liberated Port Stanley we remember with pride all those who served and died freeing the Falkland Islands from foreign occupation.
Because of them, Falkland Islanders today live and thrive in peace and freedom.
