Thank you @Debbie_abrahams for your enduring support! I've learnt so much from you and I hope I can take that practical experience with me to become Huddersfield's next Labour MP. 🌹

This is a lie.

81.5% voted for this action.

There is no “15% pay rise” on offer.

There is no “£7,000 more a year”.

Junior criminal barristers will remain on less than minimum wage.

On my way up to #Glasgow to meet with people who have lived experience of going through the #HealthAssessment process for either #PIP or #ESA as part of the @CommonsWorkPen inquiry

When people talk about viruses becoming 'milder' & endemic, what they don't tell you is 1) this doesn't always happen; 2) if it does happen, it may take decades at least- during which people suffer/die; 3) it can involve natural selection (no points for guessing what that means?)

Fab time with the lovely @AngelaRayner & Ashton CLP comrades earlier followed by a lovely time at #SaddleworthShow as well! Have a great weekend everyone!

Under this Tory government, Britain’s growth has ground to a halt.

And they are too distracted by their own failings to deal with it.

Labour has a plan to tackle the cost of living crisis and build a stronger, more secure economy.

Does @sophieraworth know something we don't? 'Obviously the next election will be a general election...' #bbcsundaymorning Watching catch-up btw

On my weekly doorknock in #Greenfield today I met one of our @OldhamFoodbank workers who told me how stretched the #foodbank is. If you're able to, please donate a few items to the @OldhamFoodbank next week. It really makes a difference. @TrussellTrust #CostOfLivingCrisis

When International Widows Day is being observed world-wide, Kashmir widows, half-widows continue to bear the brunt of Kashmir conflict.Since 1989 22,944 women were widowed by Indian state terrorism in Kashmir.

Happy International Women in Engineering Day!
I want to pay tribute to all women working in engineering. We need to continue to celebrate each others achievements, as we all work to achieve gender equality in #Engineering @INWED1919 #INWED22

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

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.

The Department for Work and Pensions ignored leading academics after they published “hugely alarming” research that linked the work capability assessment with 600 suicides in just three years, MPs have been told.

Tomorrow the decision we make in Wakefield will not only give us our voice back in Parliament - but could decide Boris Johnson's future as well.

Tomorrow, let's deliver a fresh start.

LEVEL UP

Tomorrow’s @DailyMirror front page contrasts striking train guard Dave who is lectured to swallow a huge cut in living standards by Boris Johnson and a rail boss earning 20 times as 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

The Windrush generation helped build Britain.

But the Tories' hostile environment left many homeless, jobless and without healthcare. Victims are still waiting for the justice and compensation they deserve.

Windrush descendent @DavidLammy tells their story. #WindrushDay

This week is #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek!

Cervical screening (smear tests) can save lives, but they aren't always easy for everyone.

Follow @JoTrust this week to learn more about the test, #CervicalScreeningTips that might make it easier, and where you can find support!

Excellent reception with @RESCUEorg for #RefugeeWeek2022 We were tasked to identify what we'd do if we had to flee our homes because of war, famine or floods & what we'd bring to our new community! @alexsobel got in on the act!! Thanks to the refugees who share their experiences
