Of course levelling up is about transport links and infrastructure projects. But itโ€™s also about using culture to drive growth and regenerate towns and communities. Itโ€™s about bringing world-class art to every corner of the UK โ€“ and thatโ€™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)

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 Putinโ€™s aggression.

The NI Protocol is undermining the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. The EU are unwilling to change the Protocol, therefore we must act.

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.

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. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

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. โคต

Our new Bill of Rights will replace Labourโ€™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

๐Ÿ—ณ This Thursday 23rd June, get out and vote for Helen to represent Tiverton & Honiton. #VoteConservative

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