Always loved this song! Some wonderful entertainment at @ThePieceHall alongside the #MakersMarker today. On all weekend!

I visited the @Archway_Project at Arden Road earlier this week. People who use their services and take part in activities told me how the centre and staff have changed their lives. An incredible place, which just needs sustainable funding to keep doing so much good work.

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.

I met with Jonny and the @HealthyMindsCW team today. The services they provide are invaluable but it’s difficult to hear how they are reducing services, having been unable to secure funding. If you can and would like to support them, please do so here: https://donate.justgiving.com/donation-amount?uri=aHR0cHM6Ly9kb25hdGUtYXBpLmp1c3RnaXZpbmcuY29tL2FwaS9kb25hdGlvbnMvZDVlYjhmZDc5ZTA1NDExNTk0ZWI0ZWVlOWNlN2NhNjk=

Our Skircoat Cllrs are just brilliant. Great to be out with @mikebarnes6473 Cllr Hutchinson and Cllr Kingstone this evening speaking to local residents.

First Commonwealth gold for the legend that is ⁦@HCDream2012⁩! Massive congrats and so well deserved Hannah! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/commonwealth-games/62402312

BP and Shell are reporting bumper profits while families struggle with rising energy bills.

What does former Shell employee Liz Truss want to do about it? Nothing.

It’s time we stopped handing back billions to oil and gas giants and used that money to help families instead.

Good to speak to people about local issues in Illingworth last night with @CllrDan, @Cllrstephclarke and Cllr Lynn. I was able to update some people we’re already helping as well as picking up new problems which need resolving.

Cost of living crisis: Calderdale kids as young as 5 'forced to ask neighbours for food'.

Heartbreaking, but all too common stories shared at full council this week.

It’s a priority for the council but we desperately need help from Government.

Johnson’s letter to Parliament about his Lebedev meeting in Italy in 2018 lacks any credibility. Do he and his advisors think we’re idiots? We want straight answers to simple questions. With whom did he travel there? What did he discuss with AL? And where is the detailed record?

Boris Johnson has finally admitted meeting a former KGB agent while Foreign Secretary.

The secret meeting came in the wake of an attack on British soil and after a crucial NATO summit.

But this mealy-mouthed new statement on Lebedev raises more questions than it answers. 1/5

Dismal to see Sunak/Truss competing to extend an unworkable, unethical, unaffordable, high fraud risk Rwanda scheme that will make trafficking worse.

Instead of tackling criminal trafficking gangs they are just ramping up rhetoric against refugees. Britain is better than this

Out with Sowerby Bridge Cllrs @cllrawilkinson @DotFoster3, Audrey Smith and new member Muhammad this morning. There’s no substitute for face-to-face conversations, door-to-door.

The number of people charged for a crime has nearly halved since 2010 to a record low of 5.6%. 2 million investigations dropped without a suspect.

Gov has failed victims, and criminals are getting away with it. Only Labour can be trusted to restore law and order on our streets

Since Saturday @WYFRSCaldTeam have responded to 8 primary fires + 45 secondary fires, 14 of which were deliberate. Across WY @WYFRS have attended 734 incidents as well as supporting neighbouring regions. Absolute heroes. Thank you 🙏🏻

I had to check this to believe it
Boris Johnson, PM of GB & NI, speaks of “seeing off” the President of our Supreme Court as if law is merely an obstacle
The Court unanimously found he had acted unlawfully, not just “Brenda Hale”
It’s disgusting what he’s done to the rule of law

It was a pleasure to visit this drop-in ahead of #YorkshireDay with a Keighley focus in Parliament today. Lovely to chat to the ladies from the @BronteParsonage and learn about @wyedeanweaving with @hilarybennmp!

All your bills going up and up and up.

Taxes rising to the highest level in 70 years.

The worst economic crisis for a generation.

Not our words.

The words of those running to be the next Tory leader.

See what else they think of 12 years of Tory failure:

Good to meet the @asthmalunguk team with the awesome @jessphillips and @CPJElmore this morning. 7.1% of people in Calderdale have asthma compared to 6.4% nationally. It’s why we must make more progress on improving lung health and cleaning up the air we breathe.

I asked the Government 7 times if Boris Johnson met with Alexander Lebedev. 4 times at the despatch box, I was fobbed off by;
- Home Secretary
- Security Minister x 2
- Minister for the Cabinet Office

A big thank you to Shadow Security Minister @HollyLynch5 for meeting with members today and hearing thoughts on carbon offsetting at the Great Yorkshire Show.

At the #GreatYorkshireShow this afternoon and so good to see Halifax’s very own #DamaCheese in such demand! Thanks to @NFUtweets for your time #BackBritishFarming #LoveYorkshire!

When you see and hear the details of what the 76 nominees have faced in the line of duty, it really hammers home the risks they face. Massive well done to all the nominees. Always great to see Deputy National Chair @PFEW_Tiff

In the middle of everything else going on last week, Boris Johnson told MPs he met Russian oligarch and ex-KGB officer Alexander Lebedev without officials present. If you've not followed this story in detail, we've pulled the different strands together.

What on earth is going on?

Why has @pritipatel refused at last minute to go to @CommonsHomeAffs so MPs can ask her about;
- passport delays
- asylum delays
- rising crime
- falling prosecutions
- record low rape charges
- record high fraud
& more...

This Govt is in total chaos https://twitter.com/CommonsHomeAffs/status/1547142034561040391

Home Affairs Committee @CommonsHomeAffs

🕙This morning at 10.00am we were due to be questioning the Home Secretary, Priti Patel. She has declined to attend our session.
