Delighted to see that a deal has been agreed for the takeover of #OAFC, Boundary Park and the surrounding land.

After years of turmoil off the pitch I hope this brings the stability the fans deserve and helps kick the club on to reclaim their place in the football league.

💚 Many thanks @JimfromOldham for speaking up in parliament on the importance of nature for our mental health 💚

Accessing nature aids the wellbeing of millions of us. But millions more are missing out.

Help us demand a right to #NatureForEveryone👇

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 Tory government need to act now to avert more rail chaos.

But Grant Shapps hasn’t spent a single second in talks since March. He should stop taking working people for fools & get round the table.

Tell him: stop the grandstanding, resolve the strike.

Today’s rail strike is disrupting the lives of people across the country.

The Tory government didn’t spend a single second in talks to avoid it.

Following the publication of the Oldham Independent Assurance Review this morning, myself, Debbie Abrahams MP and Angela Rayner MP have released the following statement.

🚨 Time is running out for the Tories to avert the rail strike.

The Government has just 24 hours to stop the grandstanding and fix the mess it has created.

Add your name to tell the Tories to avoid the strike. ✍️

Britain is facing the biggest rail strike in a generation but @GrantShapps hasn’t spent a single second in talks to avert it since March.

Time is running out. The Tories must get round the table and sort this out.

Anniversaries of loss are not easy. I’ve largely avoided social media as have been spending time with family, but I want to say Thank You for all the messages I have received - publicly & privately. It means a great deal that Jo is still remembered & loved by so many people❤️

Today’s @KeirStarmer speech went down a storm at @LGA_Labour #LabLocal22 this morning - read the comments that led to two standing ovations👇

“With a Labour government, as a matter of principle, decisions will be made as locally as practicable”

Under the Conservatives, record numbers of people are waiting for NHS care, with thousands waiting more than a year.

Labour will provide the NHS with the staff, equipment and modern technology needed to get patients treated on time.

Everyone should have the right to breathe clean, safe air, no matter where they live.

The Government has repeatedly failed to act & delayed action to combat air pollution.

@UKLabour’s Clean Air Act would establish a legal right for citizens to breathe clean air #CleanAirDay2022

NEW: Today, Labour launches a new start-up review to help make Britain the best place to start and grow a business.

As a pro-worker, pro-business party, we will match the ambition of our entrepreneurs - and get our economy firing on all cylinders.

The Gov't record on food👇:
7.3m people in food poverty
(2.6m children)
2.1m food parcels handed out by @TrussellTrust in 2021
64% of adults are obese
(40% of children)
£2.6bn in lost trade to EU
1/4 of exports to Ireland lost
40k pigs culled unnecessarily
Food rotting in fields

The UK is set for lower growth than every major economy, other than Russia.

The PM is throttling our economy with his total failure to take any action. #PMQs

NEW: Jim McMahon declares that the government food strategy is little more than a "new slogan" and does "nothing" to tackle the growing crisis in the food industry: https://labourlist.org/2022/06/government-food-strategy-little-more-than-a-new-slogan-mcmahon-says/

"The recession isn't just a number, it finds its way into every household in the country" says Shadow Environment Sec Jim McMahon - adding that we're "paying the price" for the Govt's lack of planning.

NEW: GDP figures show UK economy shrank by 0.3% in April.

Really worrying.

Instead of addressing structural weaknesses, all the Tories have are sticking plasters.

Labour will create a stronger, more secure economy - by boosting our energy, supply chain and business security.

Nicola Jennings on Boris Johnson’s food strategy for England – cartoon https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/picture/2022/jun/12/nicola-jennings-on-boris-johnsons-food-strategy-for-england-cartoon?utm_term=Autofeed&CMP=twt_gu&utm_medium&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1655061557

The Government's leaked 'Food Strategy' is nothing more than a statement of vague intentions, not the concrete proposals to tackle the major issues facing our country.

To call it a food strategy is bordering on the preposterous.

These are jaw-dropping sums.

£11 billion lost to fraudsters and criminals and now this.

Labour will get a grip of this Conservative government’s wasteful spending and treat taxpayers’ money with the respect it deserves.

I'm recruiting for an experienced Head of Office for my fantastic constituency office in Oldham West & Royton.

Please share with anyone you think would be great in this role.

All the details below👇

The Prime Minister is announcing measures today to allow people to use housing benefit to count towards a mortgage 🏠

The key question is: are lenders on board?

Because if they aren’t, it’s completely unworkable

Short 🧵

Prices are soaring and the cost of living crisis is out of control.

But the Conservatives are too distracted by infighting and scandal to deal with it.

Only Labour can fix the government’s mess and get our economy growing.

"I rang an hour ago for an ambulance as she had difficulty breathing. Now she's dead."

@Keir_Starmer spoke to Manchester resident, Akshay Patel, whose mother Bina, died while they waited for an ambulance after calling 999 six times.

Tonight on @BBCCountryfile I’m back on the sewage trail, this time around Lake Windermere.
Last year, sewage was ‘spilled’ into the environment for over 2.6m hours in England. But we’ve seen evidence that some water companies aren’t declaring all their spills... 6pm tonight, BBC1
