Deeply sad news.

Dame Deborah James’ charity work was truly inspirational — even in the most challenging moments, she continued to raise awareness about bowel cancer and impacted so many people’s lives.

Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.

Our country urgently needs a change in direction.

Great to sit down with @REWearmouth today to discuss Labour’s serious plan to turn it around.

Thriving industries. World class public services. Strong communities.

Labour will re-energise Britain.

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the country’s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.

Britain’s armed forces are the best in the world — today, on #ArmedForcesDay, we thank both those serving and our veterans for their service.

Today's devastating Supreme Court decision is a massive setback for women's rights in the United States of America.

The right of women to make their own decisions about their own bodies is a fundamental human right.

Wakefield’s win will go down in history, @SimonLightwood.

I’m so proud of our Labour Party and the changes we’ve made to be a government in waiting.

Huge congratulations to @SimonLightwood - Labour’s new MP for Wakefield!

A historic victory — this city deserved a fresh start, and you delivered it.

Wakefield is the birthplace of the next Labour government.

If you live in Wakefield, today is your chance to send a message to the Tories the can’t ignore:

Vote for @SimonLightwood.

Vote for a fresh start.

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.

On #WindrushDay, we celebrate the Windrush generation, who helped rebuild Britain.

But the Tories’ hostile environment left many homeless, jobless and without healthcare - and victims are still waiting for compensation.

@DavidLammy shares their story.

This is horrendous news. Thinking of all the those who have lost their lives. This will inevitably make the lifesaving work of courageous aid workers on the ground even more difficult.

As #ArmedForcesWeek begins, @Keir_Starmer and I visited NATO Allied Maritime Command & Permanent Joint HQ today to thank troops for their service to our national and NATO commitments.

But concerns are growing about the UK meeting these. That's why Ministers must halt Army cuts.

Visiting NATO Allied Maritime Command, I spoke to our troops about the situation in Ukraine and the need to bolster Britain’s defence and security at home and abroad.

Labour’s commitment to NATO is unshakeable. We stand with our allies against Putin's illegal war in Ukraine.

👋 #ArmedForcesWeek! This spectacular event is a chance for the whole country to celebrate our Armed Forces and their contribution to keeping the UK and its allies around the world safe 🤝 🌍.

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.

On Thursday, we have an opportunity send a strong message to Boris Johnson that enough is enough - and deliver a fresh start for Wakefield.

Every vote is going to count.

Join our campaign over the next five days and help us win back Wakefield.

Fantastic to be back in Wakefield with Labour’s brilliant candidate @SimonLightwood.

This Thursday is Wakefield’s chance for a fresh start.

A chance to send a message to the Tories that they can’t ignore: Wakefield deserves better.

Labour in government will have a dynamic partnership with business to get our economy back on course.

As a pro-worker, pro-business party, we know what it takes to get our economy firing on all cylinders again.

My interview with @thetimes today.

I know the challenges we face can be overcome if government works hand in hand with business.

It’s a partnership that can be the route out of the low growth we’re facing, towards a dynamic economy where opportunity is shared.

Six years ago our friend Jo Cox was tragically murdered.

Jo’s legacy is one of hope:

“We are far more united and have far more in common that that which divides us.”

In Jo’s memory, we hold the belief that a more equal world is possible.

Prime Minister, it’s time to ditch the gimmicks and face up to reality: under your leadership, Britain’s economy is going backwards.

It was a privilege to work in Northern Ireland. People came together through hard work, flexibility and trust to create security and prosperity.

The Good Friday Agreement is a remarkable, lasting achievement. We need a sensible approach to protect it, and find a way forward.

Today marks 40 years since the end of the Falklands War.

Our partnership with the Falkland Islands is one of unshakeable respect and friendship which will always endure.

Five years on from the Grenfell tower fire we remember the 72 people killed.

The Grenfell community are courageous in their pursuit of justice and change. We stand with them.

To honour the memories of those lost we must prevent such a tragedy happening again.

Carole voted Tory in 2019.

She told us that after broken promises from Wakefield’s Tory MP, she feels like she was sold a lie.

On Thursday 23 June, Carole is voting for Labour’s @SimonLightwood for a fresh start for Wakefield.

We need more than a sticking plaster approach to the structural problems in our economy.

That's why this weekend I'm talking about Labour's plan for a stronger economy, and what we need to do now so that we don't just lurch from crisis to crisis. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2022/06/11/tories-have-sticking-plaster-approach-public-finances-warns/

Governing is a serious business.

It requires focus, dedication, integrity, and the highest standards.

At times like this, people are less interested in the Prime Minister’s jokes and more interested in what he’s doing to help them pay their bills. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/06/10/keir-starmer-thatcher-wrong-british-society/

✍️Labour leader @Keir_Starmer has been writing for @BelTel
"I had the privilege of working here with the Policing Board, trying to create a lasting institution, able to serve both communities. I made life-long friends and fell in love with the people."

I agree with the Belfast Telegraph👇

‘There is an assumption among
Irish politicians that @Keir_Starmer…would deliver a more favourable result on Brexit and end the current damaging deadlock.

It is clear that he would cer-
tainly be better than Prime Min-
ister Boris Johnson’

Ireland, thank you for your warm welcome today.

From the Book of Kells to Áras an Uachtaráin, Ireland’s rich history is inspiring.

It was a pleasure to meet with Irish leaders - we discussed our vital relationship for economic prosperity, peace and stability.

President Higgins today met @Keir_Starmer discussing Brexit, war in Europe, the global food crisis, multilateralism, Northern Ireland, the need for cross-community respect and generosity of vision & the importance of understanding history rather than using it in a divisive way.

Grateful to be able to spend time with political leaders in Dublin.

We have a shared history and a unique bond as joint custodians of the Good Friday Agreement.

With my leadership, Labour will always champion this vital relationship for peace, stability and economic growth.

Today, Minister @simoncoveney met with UK Leader of the Opposition, @Keir_Starmer, and Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, @peterkyle, to discuss British-Irish ties and current international issues.

Great to have @Keir_Starmer visit campus today.
He toured the Old Library with Provost @LindaDoyle viewing the Book of Kells and signed the visitors book.

Good to meet with UK Leader of the Opposition @Keir_Starmer & Shadow Sec of State for NI @peterkyle this morning to discuss the British-Irish political and economic relationship and the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker, for hosting the commemoration ceremony on the 40th anniversary of the Falklands war.

HRH The Princess Royal, veterans and MPs came together to remember those whose lives were impacted and pay tribute to our armed forces who served.

The Tory Party has ignored the British public by backing Boris Johnson.

With my leadership, Labour will put the public first, tackle the cost of living crisis and restore your trust in politics.

The choice is clearer than ever before:

Divided Tories propping up Boris Johnson with no plan to tackle the issues you are facing.

Or a united Labour Party with a plan to fix the cost of living crisis and restore trust in politics.

Labour will get Britain back on track.

The Queen’s commitment to Britain is unwavering.

The Queen has improved our country’s reputation around the world – and has stood with us at home, through good times and bad.

Today, on #ThankYouDay, we celebrate and give our thanks to Her Majesty.

A privilege to be at #PlatinumPartyAtThePalace this evening.

Such brilliant performances, great atmosphere, and a wonderful celebration of Her Majesty The Queen.

Proud to be British!

👑 Her Majesty.
🐻 Paddington Bear.
🥪 Marmalade sandwiches.
🎸 Playing we will rock you with spoons.

Being British is brilliant. 🇬🇧

#PlatinumPartyAtThePalace

My parents said the proudest day of their lives was going to Buckingham Palace when I received a knighthood for services to criminal justice.

The only catch was they couldn’t leave the family Great Dane behind...

It’s a day I’ll never forget! #PlatinumJubilee

The Queen’s sense of duty and commitment to Her people have made our country a better place.

This weekend, on the #PlatinumJubilee, we celebrate Her Majesty.
