The Inspectorate is right to demand reform from the Metropolitan Police & to set higher standards for the new Commissioner - something that Labour, the Mayor of London & London residents have been calling for for some time.

Over to you ⁦@BorisJohnson⁩ what are you doing to help these vital international biodiversity negotiations succeed?

Always a proud moment for a writer as the cover of my new book “Harold Wilson: The Winner” is unveiled.

Looking forward to release on 1 Sept.

Here’s me with @IainDale on Wilson’s amazing life-from a modest background to youngest Cabinet Minister & PM.

Ministers have been slow to give Friendly Societies the Whitehall & Parliamentary support for the legal reforms they need to drive significant expansion. The Government must support @markhendrickmp 's Bill & require all public bodies to promote Credit unions going forward.

Thank you to @PromoVeritas for a welcoming & fascinating visit to meet their founder Jeremy, senior management and staff. Skilled in business promotions they’ve enjoyed remarkable growth. We talked trade, brexit, business rates, electric charging points and much, much more.

We sat down with Labour MP for Harrow West, @GarethThomasMP to discuss the vital role of credit unions in building resilience in the face of rising energy and living costs! 🗣

15 years since Sir Tony Blair left office. Britain’s economy was strong. Satisfaction levels with the NHS were at record highs. Educational attainment was improving. Crime was falling. Inequality was narrowing. A time when people felt proud to be British.

@Headstone32 @sasi_suresh @TashaProctor @GarethThomasMP We went to the original ‘consultation’ last month, and have been talking with local residents, Harrow Carers and the Council planning team about this. The site is designated as Open Space and in my view should be protected as such. Will be there on Wednesday.

Earlier this evening I met with residents in central Harrow & Wealdstone to talk crime (catalytic converter theft, drugs & anti-social behaviour), street lighting, flytipping, CCTV and much more; all underlining the need for a dedicated @metpoliceuk team for central Harrow!

‘Serious questions for ⁦@trussliz⁩ , the @FCDO & our Embassy; when did they become aware there might be problems and what are they doing to help British Muslims complete the Hajj safely or at least get their money back? @MCB ⁦@miqdaad⁩ https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/27/british-muslims-stranded-saudi-arabia-hajj-booking-system-motawif?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

Under the Tories, your bills and taxes have risen to historic highs.

Labour has a plan to take on the Tory cost of living crisis and build a stronger economy.

The Ocean is the primary regulator of global climate & holds the key to a sustainable planet. This week the UN’s #OceanConference seek cooperation to reduce marine pollution, protect & restore ecosystems, & enable sustainable fishing. I hope our Gov’t will take this seriously.

Do @HAConservatives think it's appropriate for one of its councillors to respond like this to swastika image being posted to mock the LGBT community? Or at all for that matter.

@MGoodwinFreeman
any comment on your ward colleague?

Won't post the full image, but you can find it.

Tomorrow with sisters in UK parliament we will seek ways to assist with tragedy awaiting US women. In UK abortion rights have progressed but in almost all of UK, a woman's right to choose as I have done each time I was pregnant is still written in criminal law. This must change.

I have had an abortion, I feel no shame or need to explain why. I am not traumatised, I was not a hard case, I was just a woman who had a choice over my own life, my own body, my own family. I am grateful I lived in a family, in a society and a legislature that supported that.

A bit of very good sports news…

💥 NEW legal opinion shows Grants Shapps has “extensive” powers to step in and help resolve the rail dispute.

He needs to stop inflaming tensions and get people around the table to find a fair resolution.

Ministers need to get involved to support British Muslims wanting to do the Hajj pilgrimage so they don’t lose out so Whitehall needs to ensure travel agents are up front about the costs & risks & gear up our Embassy to offer early support ⁦@miqdaad⁩ https://apple.news/A2HR2T6PCRa2Nh2SEokx23g

Labour’s @NickTorfaen laments the “party of Churchill…trying to trash” the European Convention on Human Rights and concedes there are decisions he doesn’t agree with but it’s about the “greater good”. #bbcqt

On #ArmedForcesDay2022 we thank our armed forces for their remarkable service and dedication to keeping us safe.

We must ensure there is a fair deal for our veterans and that they get access to the services they need.

It beggars belief that still now, after Grenfell, in Harrow, this has to happen because a block of flats isn’t safe & a Housing Assn can’t sort things out. Any chance of an update ⁦⁦@MetTVH⁩ ? ⁦@BBCNews⁩ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-london-61913607

A wonderful cause ⁦@StLukesHarrow⁩ has its Midnight Walk tonight starting from Wealdstone’s great Byron Park. Here’s hoping a lot of money is raised and everyone taking part has great fun and stays safe….
