Family looking forward to outdoor screening of Dirty Dancing this weekend in Tonbridge - as long as they don't put us in the corner... #thelunacinema

"This is a direct threat to the UK's national security."

Chairman of the foreign affairs committee @TomTugendhat tells #TimesRadio that corrupt money in the UK has been an issue "for 40 or so years", and that the Ukraine war has highlighted how it's a "threat to our security".

We need the @NATO meeting to get allies together to support Ukraine.

We’re seeing forces too equally matched and a grinding war of attrition is the result. We need to give @ZelenskyyUa the weapons to determine Ukraine’s future and defend his nation’s sovereignty.

As chairs of the foreign affairs committees of 🇱🇻🇺🇸🇪🇸🇨🇦🇨🇿🇵🇱🇪🇪🇪🇺🇱🇹🇮🇹🇫🇷🇵🇹🇬🇧 parliaments, we urge all members of NATO to swiftly approve the accession of Finland and Sweden to the alliance. We are united in the face of Putin's threats to security and the rules-based intl system.

Complacency has left the door open to corrupt wealth taking root and morally bankrupt billionaires using the UK as a safe deposit box.

@TomTugendhat It was good to catchup with you, a supporter of @cwowomen & to see friends & colleagues I hadn’t seen in a long while at the @cwowomen summer party.

Sweden 🇸🇪 and Finland 🇫🇮 will be joining @NATO. That’s good news for all of us but particularly northern neighbours like the UK 🇬🇧.

We need to do all we can to resist Putin’s aggression and defend Ukraine 🇺🇦. Having two new allies in NATO will make us stronger.

Lovely to see old and new friends this evening at the @cwowomen Summer Reception.

A special thank you to @TomTugendhat for joining us and for always showing his support to the Conservative Women’s Organisation.

New episode! Barkha Dutt (@BDUTT) joined @tylercowen to discuss how Westerners can gain a more complete picture of India, why relations between Hindus and Muslims seem to be worsening, the best city for Indian food, and more: https://conversationswithtyler.com/episodes/barkha-dutt/ #cowenconvos

The denialists are now trying to claim Russia was really targeting the rail line behind the mall, despite the Russian MFA claiming totally different locations were targeted by their attack.

Why is London a hub for criminals & kleptocrats to launder their 'dirty money'?

9 years ago Cpl Brian Wood was put in the dock by Phil Shiner's unfounded allegations. This morning Brian and I will attend Westminster Magistrates court to see Shiner in the dock, for fraud.

It's been long journey for us both - I pay tribute to him for his unrelenting courage.

Great piece on the new-look @ConHome from @TomTugendhat. Some very interesting ideas on strengthening our party.

Protectionism is destructive to all of us. Tariffs are un-Conservative because they’re a tax on consumers. https://www.cityam.com/johnson-prepares-to-bring-in-steel-tariffs-on-developing-countries/

Tony and I on @BBCBreakfast this morning as #TonysLaw comes finally into force on Tues

Not many 7 yr olds can say they are a #lawmaker

Big thanks to you, @TomTugendhat @DominicRaab for all the support

#TonysLaw #lawmaker #changinglives #changinglivestogether

#Russia is killing innocent people just because nobody really is stopping it. Too many countries are still afraid to ‘provoke’, not realizing that #putin is the master of self-provoking. #G7 must be firm on more weapons for #Ukraine. @NATO must be set on granting 🇺🇦 membership

1960s finally acknowledged women’s & gay rights as human rights.
Debate in Parliament led to settled agreement.
US legal fixes failed. Focus on a single issue without balancing broader harms let politicians off. Now the real debate is urgent. Rights go deeper than just law.

Laundering ‘dirty money’ through the UK is a fundamental issue of British national security. @TomTugendhat, @OliverBullough, @RhonddaBryant and @kevinhollinrake explain why in the latest episode of #CommitteeCorridor🎧, out now.

Gonna be very weird if Supreme Court ends a constitutional right to obtain an abortion next week, saying it should be left to the States to decide, right after it just imposed a constitutional right to concealed carry of firearms, saying it cannot be left to the States to decide
