Brilliant to have @Alison_McGovern with us for a discussion on jobs with members and Councillor Mark Smith. a great response on the doors, people need a Labour government to make sure we all get the support and access into good, well paid jobs. #labourdoorstep @UKLabour

I passionately believe everyone deserves an opportunity to get into work.

With warnings unemployment will rise sharply we can’t allow people to be written off.

I want to reform support to help more people into work.

#ffc are back at the Cottage in the top flight today facing #LFC but I couldn't preview the game without words on @NowHillsborough.

EXC: @RishiSunak told Tories in Tunbridge Wells that as Chancellor he tried to reverse Treasury formulas "that shoved all the funding into deprived urban areas" so areas like theirs could benefit

Sky-high inflation, rocketing energy bills & Bank of England warnings of recession on the horizon.

Whichever continuity candidate wins, their low-growth, low-wage plans won’t fix the damage caused by 12 years of Tory rule.

Only Labour can provide the fresh start Britain needs.

We underestimated how much Birmingham being in the spotlight would mean to us. Every Brummie I speak to about Commonwealth Games is bursting with pride about our place. Everyone I know sending messages around of them watching sport & dancing in the street. #Birmingham2022

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 👇🏼

✍️ I've joined leaders from across the North West in writing to @grantshapps in support of Crewe's bid to become the home of Great British Railways.

Make sure you have your say 👇

A vote for Crewe is a vote for common sense 😁😁😁

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.👇🏻

"Leah Williamson didn’t just lift that trophy for the very best footballers in our country, she lifted it in defiance of the idea that women will be told what they cannot do."

Amidst so many more iconic images from last night, a little one standing out for me is, seconds after the whistle, as Wembley goes wild, Leah Williamson consoling a distraught Lena Oberdorf. That's your captain right there. Bronze also went to the youngster quickly. Such respect

“These women are here despite the system, not because of the system.” — Jonas Eidevall.

Loving all the straight talking punditry from Alex Scott, Ian Wright and Eidevall tonight.

#WEURO2022

Honestly win or lose today, the @Lionesses have changed everything.

So much more to do: we fight on for equality. But this is everything for women's football, getting to this point. Everything.

Oh god it’s getting so bad. At breakfast club more people with accommodation than homeless but can’t eat & pay energy bills. Very thin elderly man this morning hadn’t eaten for FOUR days. In UK in 2022. We gave him cereal, 2 breakfasts & food to takeaway. He can’t make ends meet.

Sunak’s attention-seeking gimmick that will do nothing to solve the worst crisis in NHS history.

This is a dangerous thin end of the wedge that will penalise the most vulnerable and would cost more in admin than it would raise.

NHS leaders agree 👇🏻

This has been one of the hardest moments of my life.

Thank you all for the love and support I have received❤️

I've spoken to @MetroUK about my breast cancer journey.

Writing for the @SundayMirror, @KeirStarmer says he supports the right to strike - and that his support has gone beyond "sentiment and a photo opp"

He says Labour must go from party of protest to a party in power - then hand that power to workers

Train drivers and staff kept this country going during the pandemic.

They deserve a fair pay rise and respect.

Grant Shapps should stop boycotting the talks, do his job and get around the table to agree a deal.

“We’re seeing an extreme lack in flexibility”

GMB trade union’s @larry_turner tells #Newsnight a lot of sectors are struggling to fill record high vacancies and calls for a “fundamental change”
