8 from 8! Thank you to every ward branch, union and affiliate in Bury North who nominated me to be their candidate. It’s a humbling amount of support and one I do not take for granted. Next stop Shortlisting and hundreds more conversations🌹🙏🏽

"The job of central government is to give councils the powers to be able to deliver".

Following her #LGAConf22 plenary, we caught up with @lisanandy on @UKLabour's vision for #LocalGov.

.@AngelaRayner absolutely right - the first instinct of this Tory government is to load higher and higher taxes on working people.

No answers AT ALL on how they're going to tackle the problems that face our economy or our country today.

The game is up. #PMQs

.@AngelaRayner wiped the floor with Dominic Raab at #PMQs. Tax rises, struggling families and broken promises - how much more will Tory MPs tolerate before they tell Boris Johnson enough is enough.

"A house divided cannot stand. It’s time to come together and build. So here’s what we’ll do..."

Michael Gove needs to act now to prevent a crisis in vital services like home care and bin collections.

Staff need proper pay. Councils need support to keep services running.
Only ministers can square the circle.

The country can’t afford a Grant Shapps tribute act 👇

Deborah was phenomenal. It was a privilege to talk to her about cancer care albeit over zoom in the pandemic where she lit up the screen!

She inspired so many. Deborah’s legacy must lead to a sea change in improved cancer care. I send my love to her family. RIP Deborah James. https://twitter.com/bbcnews/status/1541874701886160898

Day 1 of line by line scrutiny of the #LevellingUp Bill. Disappointing that the Govt rejected all reasonable amendments that would've strengthened the Bill. #LevellingDown 😡

@EddieHughes4WN @BigIssue Aw Eddie, think you’ve missed a bit of the video. Let me fix that for you and give you another chance to answer my Q: if you believe you’re on target to end roughsleeping by 2024, why is Gove trying to bring back the Vagrancy Act to re-criminalise it now?👇https://twitter.com/sarahowen_/status/1541477164834586625?s=21&t=3a5qOg9QRAeaRZ5Qo07rZw

Sarah Owen MP @SarahOwen_

If this Government genuinely believed it was on target to end roughsleeping by 2024, why is Michael Gove attempting to bring back the Vagrancy Act of 1824 to re-criminalise it?

Months of waiting for a passport or driving licence.

Travel plans disrupted.

Hospital appointment and court dates delayed.

This is Backlog Britain - and it's the result of 12 years of Tory mismanagement of our economy.

Britain deserves better.

📺 WATCH: The Govt's approach to levelling up, with it’s debilitating beauty parades & ropey allocation criteria has been widely panned.

@UKLabour's alternative will get money to the communities who need.

The minister wouldn’t back it: tells your their priorities.

Todays front. The start of a campaign calling for more funding and investment in Bulwell. Many business owners and residents believe the town should be “top of the list” for level up funding 🗞

Under the Tories' inflation crisis, working people are facing the biggest pay cut in years.

They have every right to fight for a fair pay rise and decent conditions.

Working people must not pay the price for Tory failure. https://twitter.com/LouHaigh/status/1539250212472078337

Louise Haigh @LouHaigh

Rail workers kept our country going during the pandemic.

They deserve fair pay and respect.

Grant Shapps should get around the table with them and resolve this dispute.

Going to be in big trouble when @clrgeorgiapower realises we took the photo after she left…

It was windy up #Bestwood to say the least!

Today on #ArmedForcesDay, we celebrate the special service our UK Forces personnel, veterans, and their families give to our country.

From helping Britain through Covid to keeping us safe and protecting our NATO allies, Labour is deeply proud of you. Thank you.

On #ArmedForcesDay I wish to thank our Armed Forces personnel & veterans, & their families for your dedication, exceptional service to our country & the endless, extraordinary bravery in the face of danger while selflessly serving the most vulnerable.
Thank you!👏🏼🙏

Attended the Nottingham North social with Labour party colleagues, members and friends. Its always a pleasure to meet @lisanandy, always inspiring others. Thank you @nick_raine for the picture.

Ellis always said Lisa would do well.

He gave her speech this eve an excellent review, and not just because it meant he got to stay out past his bedtime!

#raisingafeminist #strongwomenrock #friendsreunited

At the #Bestwood Park Church where the African Women's Empowerment Forum is putting on a free community event until 10pm tonight. With @AudraWynter & @CllrJHayes

Huge congratulations to @simonlightwood on becoming the new Labour and Co-operative MP for Wakefield 🌹🐝

We can't wait to work with you in the future!

🌹Wakefield is Labour’s first by-election gain from the Tories since 2012

🌹This swing of 12.7% would see Labour win an overall majority at a General Election

🌹Our best result in Wakefield since 2001 — and best ever on these boundaries

🌹Labour is now a government in waiting

Thank you to all 8 branches for nominating me for the shortlist. With a final hustings now set, I’m looking forward to speaking to members on a shared vision for Leigh!

🌹

People have the lowest consumer confidence in 50 years.

This is what happens when an out of touch Tory government increases taxes on working people, squeezes wages, and has no plan to get the economy back on track.

Wakefield’s win will go down in history, @SimonLightwood.

I’m so proud of our Labour Party and the changes we’ve made to be a government in waiting.

Huge congratulations to @SimonLightwood - Labour’s new MP for Wakefield!

A historic victory — this city deserved a fresh start, and you delivered it.

Wakefield is the birthplace of the next Labour government.

What wonderful news!

Well done to every single activist who helped deliver this victory for Labour in Wakefield.

Congratulations @simonlightwood and well done to the lovely @LouHaigh @Steph_Peacock and all the @UKLabour team.🌹 https://twitter.com/UKLabour/status/1540198560196689926

The new Labour MP for Wakefield. 🌹

Superb result!

Simon’s fought a positive, energetic campaign working with the terrific @LouHaigh, @Steph_Peacock & @ShabanaMahmood and backed by the incomparable efforts of @UKLabour staff and volunteers.

Great win and a huge step on the way to a Labour Government.

The Labour Party @UKLabour

Congratulations to @simonlightwood!

The new Labour MP for Wakefield. 🌹

So proud of Wakefield’s new MP, the fantastic @simonlightwood.

This was @UKLabour’s biggest victory here since we were last in government.

This decisive result shows Labour is winning the trust of the British people, and firmly on the path to power.

A huge thanks to all the Labour staffers, who give up weeks-upon-weeks in order to fight these by-elections. Their sacrifices are huge, we owe them so much.

Thousands of holiday flights cancelled.
People unable to renew their passports.
Biggest rail strike in a generation.

The Tories simply aren’t doing their job.

#PMQs

Boris Johnson's Backlog Britain - high tax, high inflation, low growth, low wages. Queues, delays and growing waiting lists for public services.

The PM is only interested in keeping his own job and deflecting blame.

#BritainDeservesBetter #PMQs

This Prime Minister is utterly incapable of answering a straight question. Ducking, diving, avoiding and obfuscating. The country deserves so much better. #PMQs

I’ve seen the impact bullying can have on people, young people particularly. Within our schools and online it simply is not acceptable.

That's why I am supporting Don't Face It Alone from youth charity @DianaAward.

#SpeakOutAboutBullying

“Most will not be in a position to take up the new policy”

That’s the view of the PM’s housing plans from *checks notes* his own government.

If you ever needed proof that this tired government is out of ideas, this is it…

📺 WATCH: The human rights failings in north west and southwest #Cameroon are deeply concerning.

On behalf of my constituent I have secured a meeting with the Minister for Africa to ensure we can share his experience and call for greater action.

For every electoral fraud conviction in the last 5 years, the Tories are now shelling out over £380k.

Not only will ID requirements make it harder for people to exercise their democratic rights, it’s also costing us millions 💷

Workers have been left with no choice.

No one takes strike action lightly. I will always defend their absolute right to do so for fairness at work.

The PM needs to do his own job. His Government caused this. Now they must solve it.

Over the moon to announce that @GMBMIDLAND are endorsing my campaign to be Erewash Labour's next candidate.

The GMB do incredible work in Erewash, and I've always taken great pride in supporting their campaigns.

I look forward to continuing to work closely with them!

We need to smash up a century of centralisation to build an economy that works.
