This is deeply irresponsible.

Families are seeing bills pile up and the Tory response, after 12 years of economic mismanagement, is to create more uncertainty.

Labour would cut energy bills right now by removing the tax breaks for oil and gas producers.

Following dramatic increases in the cost of living, @EndChildPoverty reports that 38% of children in the North East are living in poverty. With @AshOrgUK analysis this year finding smoking to be a huge driver of poverty in the region, we urge Govt to address smoking & inequality.

The Tories are failing families and denying our kids opportunities that help them thrive.

While Tory leadership candidates compete to damage our country, Labour would be putting money in families’ pockets — tackling the cost of living crisis right now.

With sky-high inflation, rocketing energy bills and the Bank of England warning of a lengthy recession, what are the Tory leadership hopefuls up to?

BT and Openreach workers are taking strike action for the first time in 35 years.

Despite this the BT CEO is refusing to meet @CWUnews and @NadineDorries is sitting it out.

My letters to both calling on them to do their jobs, meet with CWU and get a fair deal for workers 👇

The Scottish Parliament and its Government were supposed to be examples of transparency to build public trust in politics.

The SNP have instead presided over a culture of secrecy and cover-up.

Labour will reform Holyrood in your interest - not secretive politicians.

"I was decisive and I was honest," says Liz Truss, who changed her mind about a multi-billion pound policy hours after announcing it, and then lied about it.

We need to end the SNP culture of sleaze, secrecy & cover-up, & reform every layer of Government - including Holyrood.

Today, I published the 2nd in a series of papers demonstrating how we will deliver a stronger Scotland in a changing & modernising UK.

Who’s ready to party at @SIRF_Stockton's Community Carnival? 🥳 Don’t forget this year’s Carnival will take place on Sunday, 7 August!

Get into the festival spirit down Riverside with free crafts, glitter make up, face painting and balloon modelling too.

We all celebrated the Lionesses' stunning victory, now we must secure their legacy.

The Tories are failing to seize this moment to ensure girls can play football at school.

I've written to the Education Sec demanding an 'Equal Access Guarantee' for school sport 👇🏼

Liz Truss wilfully misrepresented her own pay proposals and then tried to cover her tracks. She’s a lightweight and a liability.

Her latest mess has exposed exactly what she thinks of working people across Britain.

Some patients are waiting 2 years for NHS treatment, after the Conservatives said no-one would.

Patients are paying the price for their broken promise.

Labour will provide the NHS with the staff, technology, and modern equipment it needs.

BT handed its CEO a 32% pay rise.

Its workers are facing a cost of living crisis. Yet the CEO is flat refusing to meet them to discuss pay.

BT must get around the table with @CWUnews to agree a fair pay deal, and Tory Ministers should step in if he won’t.

Ignore the spinning u-turn, Truss has always believed Hartlepool people are worth less than southerners. This is the future under the Conservatives. Vote them out! https://twitter.com/uklabour/status/1554510540579504132

Liz Truss in power would mean a plan to cut working people’s pay.

Despite a record backlog caused by the government’s defunding of criminal justice, our soft-on-crime Justice Secretary @DominicRaab is happy to leave over ONE THIRD of courtrooms closed today, as victims wait years for justice.

Come on #DeckchairDom. Do your job and fix this. https://twitter.com/Court_Stats/status/1554738847707193345

📈Today, 3 August 2022, 172 out of the 501 Crown Court Rooms in England & Wales will not be sitting.
That's 34% of them.

BP and Shell report bumper profits as families are hit by rising energy bills.

What does former Shell employee Liz Truss want to do about it? Nothing.

Time we stopped handing back billions to oil and gas giants and used the money to help people instead.

The worst crisis in the NHS’s history.

The Government can’t even meet its own targets for eliminating TWO YEAR waits.

The longer the Conservatives are in power, the longer patients will wait.

Great to visit @REDDriving in Billingham - one of the biggest driving schools in the country:

🚗 c1600 instructors,
🚗 c8,000 active learners,
🚗 training 1/4 instructors a year.

DVSA backlog causes concern. RED estimate it could take 100yrs to clear it at the current rate

BT’s CEO has refused to meet @CWUnews despite his staff taking industrial action. This is unacceptable. @LucyMPowell and I have written to him demanding he opens negotiations. A fair pay deal could resolve this dispute. We stand with the workers.👇🏻

Great to be out in Hardwick & Salters Lane ward this evening with a fantastic team, talking to local people about any issues affecting them with ASB a key issue.

The local cllrs have secured some improvements & my office will be working with them to see what more we can do.

@ACunninghamMP @BenHouchen Still no response from the most accessible Mayor with respect to reregulation of bus services in the area, a promise he made in front of the people of Stillington just before the introduction of Tees Flex

excellent initiative by @stocktoncouncil - I only hope that the Government come up with the goods and a fair result for Billingham this time: https://www.stockton.gov.uk/article/8751/Council-resubmits-20million-Levelling-Up-Fund-bid-for-Billingham

Schools, hospitals, GPs, roads, public transport, child care, elderly care - all on their knees but it doesn't matter - we have some men playing cricket well!!! https://twitter.com/cllrtrisosborne/status/1554426171693191169

Tris Osborne @cllrtrisosborne

Certainly not @Conservatives led councils. Our one is a circus

So it appears I've been blocked by @BenHouchen.

Bit of an odd thing to do for someone who claims to be "the most available, engaged and accessible politician in the region"🤔

Do you know a Voluntary Community & Social Enterprise (VCSE) org that started in the last year that deserves recognition for their hard work?

BP and Shell are reporting bumper profits while families struggle with rising energy bills.

What does former Shell employee Liz Truss want to do about it? Nothing.

It’s time we stopped handing back billions to oil and gas giants and used that money to help families instead.

Liz Truss’ latest fantasy to cut the pay of NHS, school and police staff outside London during a cost of living crisis?

It’a copy + paste job from a shady, discredited right wing pressure group that refuses to reveal who funds it.

She’s not on your side.

Today we remember the thousands of Roma and Sinti men, women, and children who were killed during the Holocaust and remind ourselves that Roma discrimination and hate is still very present today.

In their memory we say never again.

Labour argued for months for a windfall tax to help bring bills down, but when the Tories finally u-turned they decided to hand billions of pounds back to producers in tax breaks. (2/3)

BREAKING 🚨 | Tory candidate for PM Liz Truss has revealed she plans to CUT the pay of public sector workers including teachers and nurses.

During a cost of living crisis.

At our Congress in June @RachelReevesMP met with @GMB_union members in Asda whose pay was getting badly messed up most months.

Our members are asking to be paid on time and for the hours they have worked. Today she took their testimony to the employer. https://www.gmb.org.uk/news/asda-workers-meet-rachel-reeves-discuss-wage-errors https://twitter.com/RachelReevesMP/status/1554105927950864388

Rachel Reeves @RachelReevesMP

Had a very productive meeting with @asda today, alongside @gmb_union's @andygpuk - talking about the need for fair and accurate pay for workers.
