Liz Truss planned to slash £8.8bn off the pay of public sector workers in the North.

The Tories’ commitment to levelling up is a farce.

Labour has a plan to reenergise communities and spread economic power across the country.

Me for @yorkshirepost

Liz Truss & Rishi Sunak are desperately trying to rebrand themselves, but their records show that they have been at the heart of the Tory ’s attacks on our rights and protections. Great article by @AngelaRayner & @LucyMPowell in @LabourList

It’s scandalous that Rishi Sunak funnelled public money away from deprived areas and gave it to affluent Tory shires.

The Levelling Up Secretary needs to urgently investigate what changes were made to funding formulas and what justified the changes.

✍️ My letter to @GregClarkMP

"It is the role of the government to keep the country moving. But the Tories aren’t working."

@AngelaRayner and @LucyMPowell on the ongoing dispute between CWU members and BT and Openreach:

He was asleep at the wheel. The Tories propped him up.

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.

Damning verdict on the Conservatives' record of tackling crime from the staff responsible for protecting British security.

The Tories have failed to ensure frontline agencies have the tools to do their jobs. They can't be trusted to keep our country safe.

Liz Truss is corked from the same vintage as Boris Johnson. She thinks the rules don’t apply to her and she's taking the public for fools.

A sleaze investigation is needed into why she failed to come clean about this millionaire aristocrat's donations.

BREAKING: Interest rates up 0.5%, inflation to hit 13%, and forecasts of a recession - further proof the Tories have lost control of the economy. (1/4)

Liz Truss just doesn’t add up.

The Lionesses are right: we must seize this moment.

Too many girls and women have already missed out on the opportunity to play sport.

I've written to the government calling for an Equal Access Guarantee for school sport.

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.

£8.8bn of the £11bn cuts Liz Truss glossily announced yesterday would come from slashing workers’ pay - nurses, teachers, police officers and armed forces outside the M25.

Her cheerleaders now pretending she never said it. They’re taking you for fools again. Can’t be trusted.

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.

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.

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.👇🏻

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.

Liz Truss is declaring war on herself with this recipe for levelling down. 

A race to the bottom that would cut the pay of school and NHS workers outside London, widening the divide and punishing the North.

This out-of-touch Tory Government’s commitment to levelling up is dead.

Great to meet Deputy Prime Minister of New Zealand @grantrobertson1

@nzlabour is blazing a trail for Governments around the world - I loved hearing about how they’re putting wellbeing and tackling inequality & child poverty at the heart of their agenda.

Whakawhetai koe🌹🇳🇿

Today @LucyMPowell and I met with @DaveWardGS @CWU_AndyKerr as BT Group workers strike for the first time in 35 years.

BT made £1.3bn, gave £750m to shareholders, and handed their CEO a 32% pay rise. Time for them to get around the table with @CWUnews and agree a fair pay deal.

Did Boris Johnson dodge a 'golden showers' moment?Newly released emails show that the PM, when London mayor, appeared keen on a two day private trip to Russia with Evgeny Lebedev in June 2014, tacked onto an official visit

Record delays on railways, disruption at ports and backlogs stretching for miles, all while wages fall behind soaring bills.

Instead of resolving the strikes, Tory Ministers are dreaming up reckless anti-worker laws that have no place in a modern country.

As a former care worker myself, it was tough to watch this today. 12 years of Tory mismanagement of our NHS and social care have had disastrous consequences. As I told @paulbranditv this failure of our elderly is unforgivable. Enough is enough. #ITVTonight

There is no strike by train staff in Wales under a Labour Government.

There are in England under the Conservatives.

Grant Shapps needs to get his act together, get around the table and get a deal. That’s what Labour would do.

Instead of resolving strikes, Grant Shapps is dreaming up anti-worker laws that have no place in a modern country.

His pie-in-the-sky “prescription” risks public safety, strips away rights and inflames disputes.

If he were a doctor, he’d be struck off.

If you think the NHS has been missing from the Conservative leadership debate, stand by for some absolutely shocking images coming from @ITVTonight @itvnews this evening which really ought to jolt the campaign into taking the health crisis seriously.

"This is a direct attack on one of the main pillars of our democracy"

RMT union boss Mick Lynch says Tory leadership hopeful Liz Truss is seeking to "make effective industrial action illegal" adding "it's oppression of working people"
