@AngelaRayner and @LucyMPowell on the ongoing dispute between CWU members and BT and Openreach: https://labourlist.org/2022/08/the-job-of-the-government-is-to-keep-the-uk-moving-but-the-tories-arent-working/

Liz Truss & Rishi Sunak are desperately trying to rebrand themselves, but their records show that they have been at the heart of the Tory ’s attacks on our rights and protections. Great article by @AngelaRayner & @LucyMPowell in @LabourList

Sport and recreation are important parts of daily life, yet we’ve had a decade of failure on sport with the Conservative cost of living crisis making everyday access to fitness activities more difficult.

My latest for ⁦⁦@DailyMirror👇

Sky-high inflation, rocketing energy bills & Bank of England warnings of recession on the horizon.

Whichever continuity candidate wins, their low-growth, low-wage plans won’t fix the damage caused by 12 years of Tory rule.

Only Labour can provide the fresh start Britain needs.

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)

After Sunday’s fantastic result I called on government not to miss an open goal on boosting women and girls participation in sport, including girls football in school yet Ministers aren’t even on the pitch.

THIS ONE WILL BE EPIC 🤩

The European champions will take on world champions @USWNT at @wembleystadium on Friday 7 October. Tickets are on sale now!

Last week @trussliz said she would “study the business case in detail” – in which case she could only conclude that @Channel4 is not broke & does not need fixing. My thoughts to her & @RishiSunak in @OpinionYP https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/opinion/what-would-the-privatisation-of-channel-4-mean-for-levelling-up-henri-murison-3784136 @mahonalex @patrickmcguire @JasonMcCartney

So @stellacreasy @paulwaugh @siennamarla and others, who are you voting for in #LoveIsland final? I’m team #lucaandgemma but will be happy if Ekinsu and Davide win too.

It’s been a long time coming (home) and beating Germany … Huge congratulations & a massive thanks to the #lionesses for winning a football tournament for England!

What a performance throughout, bringing us huge pride. Women leading the way! Game changer. #euros #eng

Actually @NadineDorries the government NOT Labour proposed the no confidence motion in the last week of parliament, and the government decided the rest of the business, including putting the #onlinesafetybill on hold @BBCr4today

Great to visit Talk Talk at their national HQ in Salford. We discussed helping low income families get online, super fast roll-out, growth in tech and improving digital literacy to embed the digital revolution for people and places. I also met two of their brilliant kick-starters

To celebrate becoming Greater Manchester’s Town of Culture 2022, Stalybridge is hosting a summer brimming with free family fun!

From wild art sessions in the park, to animation workshops and children's theatre there's something for everyone!

This is the first summer children can get out and enjoy themselves after the disruption of Covid but the Tory’s failure to tackle the cost of living crisis is pushing these experiences out of reach for too many families.

Here is the Competition and Markets Authority update on music streaming - this is just an initial report and the IPO work continues - but now would be a good time for some vision and leadership from labels to come forward with a new deal for creators https://www.gov.uk/government/news/cma-shines-a-light-on-music-streaming

New research out from @IPPRNorth today shows public spending since ‘levelling up’ was unveiled - three years ago this week - has risen more in London than anywhere else; lowest rises in the north. It says levelling up has been ‘business as usual’

Manchester will be bidding to host @Eurovision @bbceurovision

A world class music city, brilliant venues, experience in hosting major events, and of course one of the UK’s largest Ukrainian populations- we are confident we will make it a #eurovision to remember.
