People in Nottingham, Manchester and Leicester have ‘lowest disposable income in the UK’

➡️ The five areas home to those with the highest disposable incomes are all located in London

Just now Theresa May gave this devastating assessment of the NI Protocol Bill:

'I asked myself three questions:

•Is it legal?
•Will it achieve its aims?
•Does it maintain the standing of the UK in the eyes of the world?

The answer to all three questions is no'

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.

Abortion is a fundamental right for all women. It must be protected. I wish to express my solidarity with the women whose liberties are being undermined by the Supreme Court of the United States.

US President Joe Biden concludes his speech saying: "I know so many women are now going to face incredibly difficult situations. I hear you. I support you. I stand with you".

"This is not over" was his final remark.

Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues—attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.

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.

Solidarity with women across the USA fighting back.

Elizabeth Warren @ewarren

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:

Most Americans believe the decision to have a child is one of the most sacred decisions there is, and that such decisions should remain between patients and their doctors.

Today’s Supreme Court opinion will live in infamy as a step backward for women's rights and human rights.

Congratulations @simonlightwood!

You’re going to be a fantastic MP.

So proud that Wakefield will have the fresh start it deserves with a Labour MP.

A huge well done to all of those who campaigned so hard to make it happen.

NEW: Inflation up at 9.1% today.

Inflation is pushing family finances to the brink - but the low wage spiral many face isn’t new.

It’s a result of a decade of Tory mismanagement of our economy.

Labour will build the high wage, high growth, stable inflation economy we deserve.

Six years ago our colleague and friend, Jo Cox, was murdered.

In Jo’s memory we continue to look ahead with a belief that the world she believed in so passionately remains within our grasp.

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

Nicola Sturgeon wants to focus on division. It’s an attempt to distract from her failures.

The next electoral contest in Scotland will be a general election, not a referendum.

Our chance to bring our country together, boot out Boris and build the future, together.

It has been five years since 72 people were killed by a fire at Grenfell Tower.

The appalling tragedy is evidence of the unequal society we live in under this Tory government.

Today we remember the victims and demand action to ensure a similar tragedy can never happen again.

Constructive, engaging discussions at Stormont today, ending with @Keir_Starmer taking media questions.

Even before becoming prime minister Keir is putting the role of honest broker for Northern Ireland into action.

It’s a role that the Tories have left vacant for too long.

An astonishing sum of money. And now he wants taxpayers to pay the cost. Sunak blamed for losing £11bn in servicing UK government debt via @FT

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.

Where would we be without unpaid carers? See what @leicesterliz MP says on the link below.
#carersweek2022 - Making Caring Visible, Valued snd Supported.

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.

Today marks the start of #CarersWeek 2022.

A carer is anyone that looks after a family member, partner, or friend with an illness or disability.

We have helped these carers find practical help and support.

So many challenges facing country; so many opportunities to build better future with right leadership, vision & focus. Yet this vote means Tories will remain mired in civil war & infighting, more bothered about own future than future of country. Britain deserves better than this

“The person running our country lies, he is reckless and he’s incompetent... our country deserves better and we will not get better until Boris Johnson is gone”

Labour’s @peterkyle calls for the prime minister to resign in the wake of the Sue Grey report. #bbcqt

1) They adopted our idea.
2) They have made all the Tory MPs sent out to defend the Govt’s position and argue against windfall tax look like fools (again).
3) Because the Government is so chaotic this will keep happening.

Finally, the Chancellor adopts Labour’s plan for a windfall tax on oil & gas profits to lower bills.

Today's statement is the Tory government all over: out of touch with no plan for the future.

There's no doubt about who is winning the battle of ideas in Britain – it is Labour.

An honour to meet with the @ChiefRabbi today, our first in-person meeting. I'm heartened to receive his appreciation for the progress we've made in earning back the trust of Jewish communities.

Our discussion was representative of our relationship - positive and forward looking.

We’re looking forward to tmw’s @progbrit 2022 conference, including: a fantastic line up of experts and @UKLabour politicians tackling the policy challenges of today as we plan a programme for Govt tmw + the launch of the 2022 LTW NEC campaign - get your tickets below!

The Levelling Up Bill announced this week is depressingly unambitious. It’s more like a 325-page obituary to the government’s flagship agenda.

Labour has so much more ambition for our country than more managed decline. That’s why we’ll invest in our communities and our people 🌹

Huge news that @Deliveroo and @GMB_union have reached a groundbreaking agreement.

This shows how innovation and a voice at work can go hand in hand.

Good there are successful businesses who understand the value of trade unions in a modern economy.

GMB Union @GMB_union


@Deliveroo and GMB Union announce a new joint agreement for Riders.

It's official - we're the union for Deliveroo Riders.

NEW: NHS waiting lists at a new record high of 6.4 million.

Millions waiting too long for operations, to see a GP, and even for an ambulance.

The challenge isn’t just covid, it’s the Conservatives - running the NHS down for more than a decade.

Labour will have to fix this mess

The economy is slowing down faster than widely expected: @ONS says GDP rose by 0.7% in January, but there was no growth in February 2022 and a fall of 0.1% in March 2022. This slowdown precedes the acute phase of this inflation and cost-of-living crisis. Troubling

Twelve years of the Tories have meant low economic growth, high inflation, and high taxes.

Labour's plan will grow our economy, so we can once again afford world-class public services, bring down GP waiting times, tackle crime, and ensure our kids have the best education.
