If I ,as an elected representative, forced him to do even 1 of these things it would be considered totalitarian torture. Idea that a woman will just change her mind when a politician forces her is so wrong, things aren't torture when they are done to a woman
At least he admits that he thinks that women should be forced against their will to for 9 months to give their body and mind to a politician will. I suggest that he is forced to carry around with him a baby without putting it down for the next 40 weeks. https://twitter.com/MirrorPolitics/status/1541778555088011264
Tbf this is absolutely true.
@jessphillips And we won't even mention him having to attend baby yoga classes for 6 months cos he's so desperate for some adult company during the day.
I would ask all British companies operating in the US to take this lead.
British company Croud are taking the lead following US Supreme Court overturning of abortion rights by ensuring all its US-based employees are fully reimbursed for their travel to other states
At least he admits that he thinks that women should be forced against their will to for 9 months to give their body and mind to a politician will. I suggest that he is forced to carry around with him a baby without putting it down for the next 40 weeks.
Tory MP Danny Kruger says he doesn’t agree that “women have an absolute right to bodily autonomy".
Just got home. I was defiant in the face of what Charlotte & Danny describe. It made me feel scared afterwards. I guess shouter doesn't know what it's like to face threats to your life, how hyper vigilant it makes you.
Otherwise what an amazing group of people to be amongst.
I wasn't expecting tonight's event on misogyny and antisemitism to include a live demonstration of it in action, but it shows why this topic is so timely and important. Brilliant chairing from @UJS_PRES & contributions from @jessphillips, @jemma_levene + @DannyStone1 too! https://twitter.com/DannyStone1/status/1541887132628828166
Tonight at @JW3London , @antisempolicy ran a panel event on misogyny and antisemitism chaired brilliantly by @UJS_PRES alongside @jessphillips @charlotte2153 @jemma_levene who were all exceptional. It was a high level, interesting and sometimes upsetting discussion..and then.. 1/
I don’t regret my abortion – stop trying to make women feel guilty for being angry about Roe v Wade | @jessphillips https://bit.ly/3nmTlRz #RoeOverturned #abortionrights
An essay question - are passengers on the overground friendlier than passengers on the underground? I would say yes.
Thank you @NewStatesman in association with @LBGplc for holding today’s roundtable discussion on ‘Ending Violence Against Women’ - part of the Politics Live conference. Delighted to speak for @SEAresource and to be reunited with these 2 amazing women @jessphillips @FionaCannon2
What an amazing woman she was.
RIP #deborahjames https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-61451495
When you are more exercised by the words of a woman than your government's appalling record on charging rapists you cannot pretend to care.
Rapists are left in every corner of our country to rape again and again.
Where was the shouting for that?
Tory Ministers & MPs trying to silence women for pointing out their appalling record on convicting rapists, is as low as it gets.
The only people who should apologise for the failure to prosecute criminals and failure to give victims justice is this Government. #VAWG

One Tory insider told me: "He can't do a reshuffle now because then everybody would realise he offered them the same jobs to get through the confidence vote". https://twitter.com/Steven_Swinford/status/1541344355432206337
Cabinet reshuffle expected to be delayed until the Autumn
Boris Johnson has told allies that he needs more time to think about resetting his team
Cabinet ministers have warned that reshuffling now risks further destabilising his premiership
Turns out Blackpool is not godawful, not godawful at all. Join them if you're near.
We are meeting today at 730pm in #blackpool to organise as women who believe our representative @ScottBentonMP needs to listen to our voices on woman’s reproductive rights after he tweeted support of the supreme courts decision. Together we are stronger. Please share

Today we are hosting Politics Day! 🎉
We are welcoming eleven different schools from across the @schoolsofkevi, who will enjoy presentations from MP @jessphillips, BBC political journalist Nisha Pillai and Mayor of the West Midlands @andy4wm 👏
Force is a funny word. Your views would force me to live a certain way, my views allow you to live exactly as you choose. If you don't like abortion don't have one,it's not compulsory
@jessphillips You weren't elected to force your extremist views onto the electorate.
However you try to dress them up in emotional hyperbole.
If only the people they stuck together with was the people. We stick together through thick and thin with our tribe is literally how people get away with bad behaviour. https://twitter.com/nickeardleybbc/status/1541312573047545858
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.
Madeleine Albright warned before her death about the rising Fascism in the US. Never assume liberal democracy is the default, that progress won is in the bank and doesn't need constant forceful protection.
Miller: President Trump… I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday
By far my highlight of #Glastonbury2022 was @KuruptFM what a show.
And his arrogance
No 10 later suggested he was joking, but it illustrates his bullish mood; his persistent defiance in the light of the defeats and resignation he's had in the last couple of days.
No they are fed up with you stuffing up.
On the by-election defeats, Boris Johnson tells @BethRigby, 'people were absolutely fed up about hearing about things that I’d stuffed up. What they wanted to hear was - but what is this guy doing?'

If you give birth to a 10lb 10oz baby expect this to be your view for the rest of your life. I'm sure Paul McCartney is performing well, but I wouldn't know.
At #Glastonbury2022 will be chatting with @johnrobb77 at 12.45 at the free university in the park area, come say hi.
When the penalty for aborting after rape is more severe than the penalty for rape, that's when you know it's a war on women
🚨The government say they're taking police failings to women very seriously, but in the same breath are removing our ability to challenge them in the courts.
📻We spoke to @BBCWomansHour today about the #RightsRemovalBill.

Such a firmly held view he's not even willing to stand by it, yet he'll gladly use his vote to stop women making a choice. Flimsy, if you think it, then think it and fight for it. Pathetic
@jessphillips @REWearmouth @ScottBentonMP @GOP I think he's untweeted it.
Gotta love a screengrab though.
The conservatives think so little of the voting public and assume that they can simply be told who to vote for. God they think they are so superior when in fact this is another example of their extreme stupidity.
Suella Braverman(Attorney General) - "It's disappointing to see that there's actually a dishonest electoral pact between the LibDems & Labour, & that's more worrying"
Restricting women’s access to safe and legal abortion puts women’s lives and safety at risk.
As Labour’s Health Secretary, I will always support a woman’s right to choose.

In the face of this dark post-Roe reality, I have three words: Hold onto hope. Do not give into despair. Here’s how I’m staying in the fight:
A genuine tragedy of epic proportions
When the Supreme Court decision on Roe was leaked, me & @Heidi_Cuda dug into the data on how many women would be impacted by bans, poverty in the states set to ban abortion, & proportion of male lawmakers in those states https://bylinetimes.com/2022/05/04/64-million-us-women-and-girls-could-soon-live-in-american-states-with-no-access-to-abortion/ @BylineTimes
The Tories have truly succeeded in uniting the North and South. Bravo.
Lol Dominic Raab saying they are focused on crime fighting which is a weird focus because crime is up 18% and charging and conviction is down 18%. Not the go to I'd think if you are claiming to be good on delivery.
Dominic Raab is not being clear at all. #today
“Historic mandate”…. Next up for Johnson, an ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME tattoo
Has anyone actually checked that Boris Johnson knows what taking responsibility means.
Boris Johnson says “I of course take responsibility for the electoral performance of the Government."
Crowdfunding a new play about three ambitious careerists forced to live with the consequences of their actions.
It may be forgotten in all the furore but these elections happened in no small way because of the #MeToo movement.
I bet everyone on the doorsteps in Wakefield and Tiverton was saying that Oliver Dowden was the reason they didn't vote Tory.
Lol I mean 1am. As you can see I'm tired.
I'm staying up til 1pm I hope there is at least a sense of the result by then. 🙏

Andrea Jenkins saying "I'm not a feminist, I'm a meritocractist" If she were she might question why men have so risen historically, she must think women are crapper. If she doesn't and she wants to see people judged on merit someone should explain that she is in fact a feminist.
Yes my fave was when she said her candidate who looked to Harold Shipman for his political spin as an "excellent candidate"
@jessphillips You’re shaking your head at Jenkins as well I take it
Love Tory line being that they better beat us by loads because we are that shite. Imagine your spin being, we are much crapper than this result shows.
Also Rachel might wanna check out her government's record on clamping down on rapists. More get away with it every day. More than 98% of accused were not even charged yet alone convicted. Rapists left to repeat offend in every town village city and hamlet in our country.
@WillBlackWriter Does Rachel Maclean hear what comes out of her mouth? #bbcqt
Is the by-election coverage gonna be on telly?

Letter sent by The Baroness Greengross OBE, to the Prime Minister, shortly before her death. https://baronessgreengross.wordpress.com/2022/06/23/letter-to-prime-minister-boris-johnson-support-older-victims-of-abuse/
Such sad news. I met with her just a few weeks ago to plot with her about actions to change how elder abuse is treated. We have lost a champion.
It is with sincere sadness that we have to pass on the news that our founder and patron, Baroness Sally Greengross passed away this morning.
It is a devastating loss for us and for older victims of abuse who she fought for every day.
