The brilliant Abena Oppong Asare ⁦@abenaopp⁩ speaking last night at Labour’s business reception for ethnic minority owned businesses. Inspiring stories of start ups, enterprise, success and growth.

Wonderful to see so many @fsb_policy members at last night’s @UKLabour reception for ethnic minority led businesses and engage in a range of discussions with @vaughangething @abenaopp @chrouchconsult @SeemaMalhotra1 @Moslek_Uddin and more.

Series of meetings in London today talking about what @WelshLabour is doing in government to support the economy. Finished with an inspiring evening with black asian & minority ethnic entrepreneurs.

What a wonderful evening meeting Black, Asian and ethnic minority businesses at our @UKLabour reception tonight.

Inspiring entrepreneurs, brilliant businesses and industry leaders like these are shaping the future of the landscape with their formidable talent.

I was honoured to host a @UKLabour reception for Black, Asian and minority ethnic business leaders yesterday.

We were joined by inspiring leaders and entrepreneurs to celebrate their success.

Thanks to speakers @RachelReevesMP, @vaughangething, @Moslek_Uddin, and Serlina Boyd

It's important that the Home Secretary @pritipatel understands our feelings, as the London PLP, following the news that the Met Police Service have been put into special measures.

Our letter, co-signed by fellow London Labour MPs, with 3 hours notice.

Will no doubt add more.👇🏾

The Chancellor has imitated Labour's policies before.

He should do it again now to help struggling businesses:

👉🏾 Scrap business rates and replace them with a fairer system.

👉🏾Reverse his tax on jobs.

👉🏾 Buy, Make, and Sell more in Britain.

Great point from @abenaopp at Treasury Questions - the Conservatives have already taken Labour's policy on a windfall tax to reduce energy bills for British families.

They now need to follow our lead again and cut buisness rates for SMEs to support them through the crisis.

HomeInstead in Erith provides vital care to ageing residents to enable them to live happily, comfortably & independently at home.

Last week we met to discuss their experience through the pandemic, dementia care & how increasing costs are putting people off the care profession.

Lovely sunny morning at @LBofBexley civic parade and church service at Christ Church, Bexleyheath.

Great to see so many local groups and residents coming together!

Huge thanks to staff and volunteers who helped make it run smoothly.

Wonderful turn out for this year's Civic Parade for our new @MayorOfBexley - great to see so many friends from @Kentaircadets @GLSEACF @10selacf @stjohnambulance Cadets, @PoppyLegion @westkentmasons @lionsclubs - Bexley, and so many more.

Honoured to have our MPs and DL too!

At the official opening of #BakeYard and Windrush celebration on Lakedale Road in Plumstead. Great atmosphere and lush food. It’s open till 9pm today.

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the country’s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.


Who is joining us?

Pre and post natal support, cakes, tarot cards, mindfulness, early year specialists, facepainting, balloons and soft play!

Come and join us on Saturday 2 July @lesnes_abbey


This is a devastating step backwards for women's rights in the United States.

Every woman who needs one should have the right to a safe and legal abortion.

Solidarity with every woman affected by this cruel decision. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-61928898

It’s #RefugeeWeek2022 👐

We are so proud to celebrate the wonderful contributions that refugees, asylum seekers and migrants have made to Royal Greenwich this week.

Check out the amazing free events @LRMNetwork have planned 👉https://greenwich.cityofsanctuary.org/2022/06/08/mark-refugee-week-with-us

#RefugeesWelcome ❤️

Today our Leader Cllr @MrOkereke met with @rokhsanafiaz, Mayor Of Newham, @abenaopp MP for Erith & Thamesmead and @SebDance, Deputy Mayor of London for Transport, to discuss how we can collaborate and unlock potential of #Thamesmead with extension of #DLR. 🚆🚆🚆

For too long, Thamesmead has been left off the transport map. Extending the DLR to Thamesmead would unlock significant opportunities for my constituents.

Today I met with @TfL, @PeabodyLDN & leaders from @Royal_Greenwich & @NewhamLondon to discuss bringing the DLR to Thamesmead.

Fantastic to celebrate our Armed Forces with @JohnHealey_MP, @LukePollard, @abenaopp, and @rach_hopkins

#ArmedForcesWeek is our chance to say thank you to the entire Armed Forces community for all they do to serve their country

Great to see Community Champion Toni from @Morrisons Erith @bexleyfire @taylorlabour

"Johnson wants you to think his failing government is handling the economy well. That is yet another lie. The Tories are overseeing a criminal waste of Britain’s potential," @Alison_McGovern writes: https://labourlist.org/2022/06/the-conservatives-are-overseeing-a-criminal-waste-of-britains-potential/
