The @DHSCgovuk's draft Mental Health Bill does not go far enough to address the wait times people in crises face when they present themselves to A&E to be treated.

@sajidjavid told me it was one of his priorities for NHS, I'll believe that when I see it...

☎️ 470,000 mental health 999 calls each year.
🚑 Thousands going to A&E in a mental health crisis.
⏳ Some children stuck in A&E for days waiting for a mental health bed.

The Government needs to get a grip of the mental health crisis across our country.

Violence keeps impacting those who strive for social justice in Colombia.

Juan David Ochoa, a young activist, was killed today in Antioquia.

He had campaigned for @PactoCol, the coalition of new president @petrogustavo.

Juan’s partner and father were badly hurt in the attack.

"@petrogustavo's victory...should provide new impetus towards full implementation of the peace agreement."

@FabianLeedsNE says Colombia's election result will strengthen the peace process but questions govt minister @vickyford over the UK's approach to human rights there.

Starmer talks about unity but instead he and his front bench create divisions.

Workers rights should be the bread and butter of the Labour Party. Supporting the @unitetheunion, @GMB_union @RMTunion fights should be unconditional! https://twitter.com/bbcpolitics/status/1540991059718819840

Praise indeed from @spectator. Because Mick Lynch unequivocal in defence of his members, tells the truth, inspires the labour movement. Simple as.

We have mapped over 5⃣0⃣0⃣ strikes in >2 years.

⛱️The summer of discontent has meant our map is struggling with the amount of action and visitors.

This is a deeply unhelpful intervention.

The Labour Party is the political wing of the labour movement and it's incumbent on every Labour MP to stand side by side with working people fighting for their rights.

Solidarity with BA workers! https://twitter.com/BBCPolitics/status/1540991059718819840

Incredible turn out at the @RMTunion picket at Lime St today. Proud to speak in solidarity with the fantastic strikers. Spirits are sky high with massive support from the public!

Victory to the RMT ✊

Fantastic support for @RMTunion at Liverpool Lime Street & in my own constituency. Great to be out with members of @WavertreeCLP & friends @KimJohnsonMP @IanByrneMP @DanCardenMP

It’s a pity @LivEchonews has failed to mention for the second time that I turned up and spoke in solidarity with the RMT in their valiant leadership against a decade of attacks on the working class.

A shame how invisible you become as a Black woman MP!

On Armed Forces Day I thank our dedicated forces and veterans for their service, sacrifice and commitment.

We must take this opportunity to renew our fight for better support and services for our veterans - particularly housing and mental health.

Great to meet with the LCR race equality team yday.

@LCRMayor has allocated £3m to improve opportunities for the Black community. Including boosting the recruitment, retention and progression of Black staff.

This is what putting your money where your mouth is looks like.

They’re leading the fight back against the attack on jobs, wages and conditions at a time when profits are soaring and working people are being squeezed.

Lovely afternoon out celebrating the 10th anniversary of @EvertonSchool.

Great to talk to the incredible staff and students and hear about all the work they’re doing!

The earthquake in Afghanistan is deeply devastating news.

With Afghanistan’s infrastructure crippled by decades of UK-backed war and sanctions, we have a responsibility to urgently step up and send financial and medical aid to help with emergency response and recovery efforts.

👍🏽 Rail workers in #Liverpool have successfully secured a 7.1% pay rise, which unions have hailed a "new benchmark".
🤔 Union boss says new agreement shows government are blocking routes to end other rail worker disputes❗

@RMTunion #ToryRailStrikes

Yesterday we met with lots of organisations in the community which @CALiverpool_ @CentralLpoolPCN have funded to deliver health wellbeing projects @SaveraUK @GSWG_charity @CentrePal @LivArabicCentre looking forward to attending again to see the outcome of the projects.

Dear fans!!!

Difficult to find the right words for this. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, I'm so pleased to be a very small part of this incredible success we'd together during the last 6 years.
You were there in good and bad times. I'll never forget. #YNWA

If the last few days of Mick Lynch media smack downs have made you think "I want to buy him a pint" - go one better.

Throw in the cost of a pint to the @RMTunion dispute fund, used to financially support the strikers. It's what Mick wants.

#News: To mark #WindrushDay, we will be lighting up some of the city's most iconic civic buildings - St George's Hall, Town Hall and the Cunard Building.
The buildings will be bathed green and yellow from 10.30pm.

I would like to thank @lpoolcouncil for agreeing to light up council buildings tonight in honour of Windrush Day, when the first Caribbean citizens responded to the call to rebuild post-WW2 Britain, faced appalling racism while doing do, but contributed so much #WindrushDay2022
