Brilliant evening at the Ed Sheeran gig at Wembley Stadium with my boyfriend. All our favourite songs and incredible staging. Loved it.

Luke Pollard "There are deliberate attempts in the UK to roll back LGBT+ rights focused at trans people. The level of abuse, the marginalisation, the cutting and pasting of the headlines from the 1980s that once applied to gay people." 1/3

#50YearsofPride #pride @LukePollard

On the 50th anniversary of #pride roll back of #LGBT rights are happening right now. Equality is not a one way street - it can and is being reversed at home and abroad.

Now is the time for us to wake from comfortable complacency to stand up for everyone in our big LGBT family.

Happy Birthday to 999!

999 number was introduced in London on June 30 1937 after five women were killed in a house fire in 1935. A neighbour tried to phone the fire brigade at the time but was held in a queue by the phone exchange. Govt inquiry introduced 999 to save lives.

Dominic Raab won’t approve but I did indeed go the opera last week (it cost me £62).

Tom Eisner, a working-class lad from Buxton near where I grew up kindly invited me. He’s been playing violin at Glyndebourne for 36 years.

Never let anyone tell you you’re not good enough. 🎻

A public meeting to tackle overt drug dealing in Greenbank - which @LukePollard describes as the “start of the residents’ fightback”- is to be held in July. Luke and Cllr @CharlotteHollo are holding the meeting at 6pm on Thursday 7th July

I’m in the debate in the Commons about the utterly dire situation at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. That hospital has the largest ambulance wait time in the entire country. This has an impact on Derriford in #plymouth too. Our NHS was in crisis before the pandemic. Much worse now.

On my way to @UKLabour’s Celebrating Ethnic Minority Leaders in Business event hosted by @RachelReevesMP and @abenaopp. I’m wearing a tie made by Abena’s auntie Kraka in Ghana. Looking forward to meeting some inspirational people tonight.

Alarming that almost half of all students are impacted by poor mental health.

The Government must support universities to ensure students have access to adequate services.

I really like the new Plymouth Argyle away kit and 3rd kit. I especially like how Project 35 - their initiative to fight child poverty in our city - is taking centre stage on the shirts. ⁦@argyle⁩ https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/news/plymouth-news/plymouth-argyle-away-kit-3rd-7268960

Number of holiday-let homes in England up 40% in three years. We need a focus on first homes not more second homes. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-61966359

For too long, the government have allowed water companies to treat our rivers and waterways like open sewers. They have promised to clean them up, but ecological standards have not changed since 2016. That is why I welcome this overdue investigation.

Plymouth's Royal Citadel and Stonehouse Barracks saved from imminent closure - now let’s get the bases modernised. #plymouth https://www.itv.com/news/westcountry/2022-06-28/plymouths-royal-citadel-and-stonehouse-barracks-saved-from-imminent-closure

Great to speak at the @TargetOvarian reception today

When more people are aware of Ovarian Cancer symptoms, more lives are saved.

Make sure you're aware of:
💜 Persistent bloated tummy
💜 Always feeling full
💜 Tummy pain
💜 Needing to wee more

After years of campaigning today is a good day as Ministers confirm #Plymouth's Royal Citadel and Stonehouse Barracks are saved from closure for now. It’s time for the proper modernisation of Stonehouse Barracks to keep the Royal Marines in our city. https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/news/plymouth-news/plymouths-royal-citadel-stonehouse-barracks-7264553

I’m in the debate on bottom trawling. It may be #pride month but don’t think dirty, it’s a debate about fishing practices!🐟

☎️ 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.

Tonight the @UKLabour LGBT+ group of Parliamentarians & our allies marked 50 years of #Pride with an event in Parliament. Equality matters. Visibility matters & being authentically you matters. As #plymouth’s first ever out MP I will keep challenging hate and saying #LoveIsLove

This morning I met with @Google to talk about Google searches for incel culture and how the internet can be made safer after the tragedy last year in #Plymouth. There’s a lot more work to do on incel culture but today was helpful.

"Labour stands behind each and every member of our forces community, and thanks them for their commitment and duty – today and always."

Spent the afternoon today with my lovely boyfriend doing cultural things around London. Had a lovely time looking at art at the Tate Modern #dayoff

The #Plymouth Conservative Councillors who moved to Gloucestershire but refuse to resign are not a great example of leadership in local government. They should resign, trigger by-elections and let local people have local elected representatives https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/news/plymouth-news/councillors-who-moved-gloucestershire-defended-7245314

A fantastic #ArmedForcesDay in #Plymouth. Very proud to have Shadow Armed Forces minister @LukePollard & Cllr Dylan Tippett join us at the @labourforces stand.

Labour’s commitment to our #ArmedForces is stronger than ever

@UKLabour @Dylan4Compton @TobyDickinson @DMHM123

It was great having @LabourForces in #plymouth today speaking to people about Labour’s support for Armed forces personnel, their families and veterans. Labour backs our armed forces. #ArmedForcesDay

I’ve had a superb time on #Plymouth Hoe for #ArmedForcesDay. Plymouth is a military city. I’m proud to come from a military family and as @UKLabour’s Shadow Armed Forces Minister it’s been good to speak to those serving, their families and veterans.

Today is #ArmedForcesDay. It is public celebration of the service and selfless commitment of our Forces, their families and veterans. From deployments abroad in response to the invasion of Ukraine to deployments at home during the COVID pandemic, our Armed Forces are essential.

🚨 Job Alert 🚨 - I'm hiring a new caseworker for my #Plymouth office.

Do you want to help make a difference for our city? Have a look...

Today on #ArmedForcesDay, we celebrate the special service our UK Forces personnel, veterans, and their families give to our country.

From helping Britain through Covid to keeping us safe and protecting our NATO allies, Labour is deeply proud of you. Thank you.

What a great initiative by a group of Plymouth students. There is a real housing crisis in our city and we need more genuinely affordable homes to be built - and fast.

Beautiful service on #plymouth Hoe for #ArmedForcesDay at the RAF Memorial remembering those who served in the RAF and allied air forces.
