Interestingly leaked spreadsheet of Tory MPs some years ago described him as โ€œhandsyโ€ which at the time I thought was an interesting jeux de mots https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/31/who-is-handsy-in-taxis-spreadsheet-of-sexual-allegations-alarms-tories

Deputy chief whip Chris Pincherโ€™s resignation letter - confirming he has quit because of his drunken behaviour last night. (Following @hoffman_noa scoop)

The aim of the #WalkAndTalk project is to start a conversation between public and officers about their safety concerns, & what police can do to tackle Violence Against Women & Girls, #VAWG.

Please see the attached poster for more info


Good to talk to team @Tesco Acton vale with @TrussellTrust and Deputy Mayor @Hitesh_T about all that they are doing with foodbanks and donating community funds.

Horrifying to hear of violence against retail workers but heartening that they are topping up customer donations

Changes w/ 12-13 June.

After this morning's session at @CardiffJomec we met members of @ICNNUK and had a tour of the new @BBCWales offices.

It was great to hear from the people making local journalism happen. Thank you to everyone involved!

Now I know why Kruger declined to sign new clause I tabled to #PublicOrderBill proposing that women be able to access abortion clinics without harassment, supported by MPs of 7 parties https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/58-03/0008/amend/puborder_rm_pbc_0527v2.pdf

Out of step with public opinion and quite frankly disgraceful #BackOff

Mirror Politics @MirrorPolitics

Tory MP Danny Kruger says he doesnโ€™t agree that โ€œwomen have an absolute right to bodily autonomy".

We're always looking for ways to make #YourActon the most beautiful it can be. So thanks to @W6gardencentre and @RewildingActon we have brightened #Acton High Street's bare planters with BLOOMING colourful flowers. Can you guess the locations? #LoveLocalLoveActon

En route back to London after successful @CommonsDCMS probe into local journalism @CardiffJomec @BBCWales @S4C with @julianknight15 @JulieElliottMP @BrineMP and @KevinBrennanMP who performed great set and duet at @ealing_project pre launch event last week with @Valerie_VazMP

The headline #Census results finally released. #Ealingโ€™s growth put at 8.5% over ten years - 27,000 more than 2020 mid year estimates. The census was conducted during lockdown in spring 2021. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-61966084?app=news.uk.story.61966084.page

Only 2 more sleeps! Our amazing team are buzzing with excitement and ready to welcome you to our new venue from Thursday - here they are at the venueโ€™s first private event with @RupaHuq last week. See you on Thursday folks! ๐Ÿ‘‹

Taking a moment to appreciate @RupaHuq and her team who responded to two separate requests, (one from me, one from me and the residents of our building), quickly and helpfully. I bet there aren't many constituents who feel as heard and represented as I/we do right now.

We were all delighted to see @RupaHuq visit our community cafe, The Hub, last week, including @TCESGroupCEO who wanted to send "a huge thank you to Rupa for coming to see what we do and making our students feel so seen." #wenevergiveup #ealingcommunity http://ow.ly/V6vj50JIiVC

As councils have been forced to cut youth centres under austerity, venues can be useful sites of cultural production and consumption as well as halting the decline of suburban high streets

Here's me filmed at brand new @ealing_project including hitting the decks and dancefloor!

Exclusive figures seen by Politics London show that only 18% of the funding allocated to London from the government's Cultural Recovery Fund has gone to Outer London. Helen Price reports.

Not just #Glastonbury that made a return this weekend after 3 years, Brentham estate strawberry tea made a comeback

Lovely to address the chilled gathering and wish Barbara Murray a happy 100th birthday in advance of big day shortly alongside the ever irrepressible Steve Pound

Desperate Tory HQ spin that they won most aggregate votes in 2 lost by-elections as cabinet members seats now at risk

Attlee won popular vote and highest % in 1951 but Conservatives won most seats

Rules is rules, if youโ€™re complaining youโ€™re losing


Top trolling Specsavers!

Am reminded of fact PSB (i) were named after the Shampooch in Springbridge Road, Ealing https://www.petshopboys.co.uk/history/1981 (ii) initially insisted they'd never tour or even play live as synth sound un-recreatable

Spectacular show tonite though #Glastonbury2022

Specsavers @Specsavers

Thatโ€™s from one of our eye test machines. There was a piece of blu tack on it when he came for a test yesterday. We need that back @PetShopBoys #Glastonbury2022 https://twitter.com/PatWotton/status/1541166366547484682

Bumper edition of @BBCLondonNews Politics London today, Actonโ€™s @SCNathan of @RefugeesAtHome on #RefugeeWeek2022 plus my good self and @PrestonPBenson on new @ealing_project arts centre opening next month which had trial run with me DJing this week!


Yesterday @MayorofEaling, Deputy Mayor, @Hitesh_T, me as Consort, @RupaHuq, Councillors, London Assembly
@DrOnkarSahotaAM & other dignitaries, observed #ArmedForcesDay in Ealing. Give Thanks & Respect to all who serve including keyworker support in challenging times, always.

Communion is back!

After two tough years good to be at my first Patronal Feast of St Peter mass @stpeterealing in ages this morning with mayor & cllrs. Great to have new Bishop of Willesden Lusa Nesenga delivering sermon and catch up with familiar faces at parish lunch after.

St Peter's Ealing @stpeterealing

Join us for our Petertide Celebrations over the coming week with @Lustherev. #petertide #stpetersday #ealing #church

When the A levels are over a young man's thoughts turn to... litter picking! We hope you enjoyed your first event with us, Rafi. Another estimated 1.5 tonnes from Canada Crescent, Acton, making 16.5 tonnes over five events. Thanks to awesome @GreensWelfareUK for helping again.

I'm playing a solo set in the beer tent stage of Party in the Park (Pitshanger, Ealing) at 1pm. Join in the Summer fun on the 26th of June! @PitshangerPCA @PitshangerW5

Last went to #Glastonbury in 1997 with @rokhsanafiaz, memorable for losing my glasses (pre lenses for me) and Battle of Somme like mud but hats off to #PaulMcCartneyAtGlasto for putting so many a fraction of his 80 years to shame - consumed in comfort of home 25 years on. Bravo

On #ArmedForcesDay in Ealing with @RupaHuq , London Assembly @DrOnkarSahotaAM Mayor of Ealing , Councillors and other dignitaries. We pay tribute to the incredible contribution of all who serve. Their courage, commitment & bravery

A privilege to join #ArmedForcesDay parade with @Hitesh_T @MsQuansah in Ealing to give thanks for their duty and front line service in tough times of covid and war which have seen our forces step outside usual roles eg in vaccination

Govt must treat them with proper respect

Rail Strike records of governments since Iโ€™ve been a train user:

Labour 1997-2010: ZERO strikes

Tories (currently): THREE this week alone

Respect to all those sacrificing a dayโ€™s pay to be out on picket lines today because government sitting on its hands #rmtstrike

Rupa Huq MP @RupaHuq

Tories trying desperately to shift blame to Labour for rail strikes.
Odd that every national rail strike in my adult lifetime has been under a Tory government.

Time to get round the table and sort this, @grantshapps. #ToryRailStrikes

Access to safe abortions is not only an issue of freedom of choice for women and girls in challenging emotional circumstances but also about access to safe healthcare. #StandwithUSWomen

New Clause 1 - Offence of interference with access to or provision of abortion services | Public Order Bill | Public Bill Committees http://dlvr.it/SShK5R

Sad day for USA, leading nation of the so-called free world, the right to legally own a gun defended to the hilt yet the right of women to control their own bodies tossed aside today by Supreme Court turning the clock back 50 years

We must guard against same here


EALING Central and Acton MP Rupa Huq is challenging Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries over her claim that actors played poverty-stricken people on the former South Acton estate in a TV documentary.


The overturning of Roe v Wade is a major and deeply upsetting setback for women. It sends a message that a womanโ€™s reproductive rights โ€“ which are fundamental to their physical, psychological and social wellbeing โ€“ are not worth protecting.


This feels timely given Roe v Wade: Abortion rights in Britain are not under threat but the women who seek them continue to be on a daily basis @theipaper


@BPAS1968 @MSIchoices @RupaHuq @FSRH_UK @theipaper

What a cake! We were thrilled that our talented pupils were given the chance to demonstrate their skills to @RupaHuq in our community cafe, #TheHub, earlier today. Thank you for visiting and supporting our exceptional young people๐Ÿ™ #asc #wenevergiveup @TCESGroupCEO

Great visit to @TCESgroup @TCESGroupCEO North West London School for exceptional neuro-diverse young people and taste results of food tech class (ace blueberry cake) in the Hub cafe theyโ€™ve set up near @eastacton station

Congratulations โฆ@simonlightwoodโฉ MP ! Fantastic result for โฆ@UKLabourโฉ in #Wakefield and a superb local campaign organisation, glad to have helped with Labour Friends of Bangladesh and โฆ@RupaHuqโฉ

Fantastic result โฆ@simonlightwoodโฉ Looking forward to seeing you, our newest MP, in Parliament next week

Significantly the 12.7% exceeds national swing required to win a majority Labour government at General Election
