Liz Truss wanted our nurses to be paid less, Rishi Sunak boasted about taking money away from 'deprived urban areas'
It's clear that who ever wins this leadership contest the country loses.
EXCLUSIVE : A video shared with the New Statesman showed Sunak boasting to Conservative Party members that he was prepared to take public money out of “deprived urban areas” to help wealthy towns.

BREAKING: Interest rates up 0.5%, inflation to hit 13%, and forecasts of a recession - further proof the Tories have lost control of the economy. (1/4)
I was thrilled to present the Unison Northern Kenny Bell Memorial Award to Mary for her outstanding work in the field of lifelong learning.
It was also great to catch up with Unison members who have recently completed their IOSH H& S award, and work place reps training courses.
What makes our programme truly unique, is that it is not a one size fits all approach.
We work with workplaces to help them identify the areas for improvement, assess their requirements and continue to support as the organisation grows.

Less than two weeks to go to have your say on where the new public body, Great British Railways HQ, should be located.
Here's just some of the reasons we think Newcastle is perfect, not that we're biased!
We’ve seen today exactly what Liz Truss thinks of public sector workers.
It’s clear her priority would be to slash their pay packets and send local economies backwards.
12 years of the Tories and this is what we’re left with.
Britain deserves better.

A powerful message from our regional news. Sadly the Tory candidates have so far been refusing needs of our communities and have barely even discussed levelling up.
Newspaper titles across the North unite tonight to warn Rishi Sunak/Liz Truss not to turn their back on our region once in Number 10. A lot was promised in 2019 and we want to see delivery #TheNorthRemembers
Why isn’t this a bigger issue in the leadership debate?👇🏻
“Levelling up” is turning into one of the biggest broken promises of all time. https://twitter.com/Independent/status/1551806942963798016

This week Michael Gove said that the core functions of Government aren't working - this is the proof.
We need a change of Government to fix backlog Britain!
Great to have friends and colleagues together talking about what further work we need to do for people who suffer from PKU.
Thank you @LizTwistMP for hosting @NSPKU to say thank you to all who have helped us so far. Sapropterin is changing many lives but our campaign is continuing - a plan needed for the 70% who don’t respond.
Really enjoyed meeting our great friends in Parliament.
COME ON @Lionesses.
@NorthernUNISON members show their support for #Lionesses and #ShowRacismtheRedCard
@unisontweets @PFA @England
The PM calling the words of the leadership candidates as ‘satire’ showcases the farce of this Tory Government. We need a fresh start for our country can move forward! #PMQs
A new ‘one-stop shop’ website that seeks to share knowledge and build progressive policy in the fight against climate change is exactly the kind of thing we need
"Until now there has been no go-to source of independent evidence on the effectiveness of policies to prevent plastic pollution"
💬 @UoPPlastics explain why their new Global Plastics Policy Centre online platform is a game-changer. #PartnerContent
Be a mate. Be the change.
It is not always easy to tell that someone may be struggling, which is why its so important that we check in with friends and family.
We all can reach out and ask somebody how they are.
It's nice to have someone speaking up about levelling up in all of this Tory leadership contest chaos.
The Tories might have abandoned levelling up but Labour won’t.
The Tories might have abandoned levelling up but Labour won’t. I’m in Darlington today setting out how we’ll hand our towns, villages and cities the power to make decisions for themselves ⬇️
4 weeks on Saturday along with my Son who has Fetal Valproate Spectrum Disorder, husband and supporters I will climb #BenNevis to raise funds for @Infactuk

Hartlepool’s brilliant candidate for MP is @JonathanBrash From the town, For the town.
Today's annual report from @Channel4 show plans to privatise are a busted flush.
These results demonstrate that its current model works but goes above and beyond in delivering dynamic growth, revenue diversification and long-term sustainability!
Yesterday I called for the implementation of a fashion watchdog.
Introducing this will create a better foundation for good working conditions . I will be working on the development of this with several other MPs. Thank you to @traidcraftexch for their support in raising this.
Today, @LizTwistMP is standing up for a #FashionWatchdog in parliament after #PMQs – introducing a bill that would curb UK fashion brands’ abusive behaviour towards their suppliers that drives workers in the Global South into destitution.
Listening to @karinsmyth @evenor23 @LizTwistMP @cmcanea @maryanncv8 and @unisontheunion's Helen Couchman on care work.
High-skilled diverse women in social care are too often taken for granted, paid too little, & not given a chance to progress. Few greater feminist causes.
We support the UK Fashion Supply Chain Bill 🔗
This bill provides a Code of Practice for fashion retailers in their relationships with their suppliers, and an Adjudicator to enforce and encourage compliance.
@FionaGooch @traidcraftexch @LizTwistMP
We really do deserve more than this!
Sadly after 12 years of brutal cuts, the data now shines a light on the level of regional inequality the Conservatives have presided over for well over a decade. We need a change of Government, not just the person at the top.
The situation for children in the North is only going to get worse unless immediate action is taken - we’re calling on northern MPs to join our APPG on #ChildoftheNorth tomorrow to help @EmmaLewellBuck @MaryRobinson01 https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/jul/12/north-east-england-overtakes-london-as-uks-child-poverty-hotspot?CMP=share_btn_tw
Privileged to host @CMO_England at Edberts yesterday. Alongside community members, Leader of Council, GP, Headteacher, Police, Researcher, Youth & Community team. Home is for health - hospital for repairs. @AliceWiseman11 @Jaytee82 @MartinGannon002 @LarkspurPrimary @peoplesbiz
Crowds gathered to hear speeches from our pandemic heroes and their trade unions, starting with @DurhamMiners Association
And quite right too to recognise the work of Vall our pandemic heroes!!
Traditionally the famous balcony at the County Hotel has been packed with local dignitaries and famous @UKLabour politicians. This year, as we celebrate the key workers who kept the country moving, it is filled with pandemic heroes #DurhamMinersGala #DMG2022
And great to meet up with Greenside banner too!
Bright and sunny day for the Big Meeting. Banner flying high as we march through Chopwell!
It’s not just temperatures that are soaring ☀️- so is the cost of many essentials we all depend on.

The Conservatives have overseen 12 years of economic stagnation, declining public services and empty promises.
We don’t need to change the Tory at the top – we need a proper change of government.
We need a fresh start for Britain.

Tory Cabinet Ministers have known all along who this Prime Minister is. They have been his cheerleaders throughout this sorry saga. In doing so, they have been complicit every step of the way, allowing Boris Johnson to disgrace his office and let down his country. #PMQs
This is proof that the Conservative party is at war with itself. We need strong leadership and it's time Boris and the Tories realise enough is enough, he's out of ideas, he's of touch and he's running out of time.
We need clarity on this serious issue and sadly we cant rely on the highest office in government to tell the truth.
This morning I have written to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards - because No 10 keep changing their story and are still not telling the truth.
Great turn out for our @NEA_UKCharity and @FairByDesign social tariff event at parliament today. Excellent opening comments from @BenMLake @LizTwistMP @peter_aldous @alanwhiteheadmp & Baroness Pinnock, all talking about fairness and recognising the need of the #CostOfLivingCrisis
Kicking off our event on the social tariff and the cost-of-living crisis by hearing from @LizTwistMP @BenMLake @peter_aldous @KathPinnock and @alanwhiteheadmp! @NEA_UKCharity
A consistent supply of water is the minimum water consumers should be able to expect. However, repeat supply interruptions are impacting tens of thousands of customers every year. Don’t suffer in silence – contact our team https://orlo.uk/XfLCc

Thanks to @Rachel_deSouza , @ChildrensComm @sreddy100 @LivUni @LivUniSLSJ
Rachael listened to what the children of Liverpool wanted to change and also what they liked.
Alyssa from Uni of Liv YPAG presented #childofthenorth
paper. @The_NHSA 🙏🏻
I couldn't agree more. Trying to silence women on this issue is shameful
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
