The absolute best book I read last year. Had to stay up all night to finish it as I couldn't breathe.

Get it!! 99p. Then do what I did and go buy physical copies for everyone you know needs to read it 🥰 https://twitter.com/willrdean/status/1542458648860975105

Less than a pound. Run, don’t walk 🔥

No serious attempt by the Leader of the House to engage properly with my question in the @HouseofCommons today about the recent spate of large-scale trains cancellations, virtually every day, on TransPennine trains serving the Hull and Humber area. @hhchamber

2022 CWA Dagger Awards : Ray Celestin, Janice Hallett & Mark Billingham awarded 2022 CWA Daggers. The winners of the 2022 CWA Daggers, which honour the very best in the crime writing genre, have been announced at an awards cermony hosted by Barry Forshaw and Victoria Selman

Conservative MP Sir Charles Walker asks for an urgent debate about the Education Secretary’s mobile phone.

He says he has been texting Nadhim Zahawi for six months about a badly leaking roof at his local school and nothing ever happens.

A great night at the Crime Writers' Association Awards, lots of fun and the first time I've been in black tie for a loooong time! Lovely to see my editor and agent, a big thankyou to my publisher @bonnierbooks_uk and @The_CWA - congratulations to all the winners! 👏 #CWADaggers

We must see the MSG Sphere monstrosity in context. A Legacy of failure by unaccountable planners working to channel money to big developers. Promoting Boris Johnson's money-wasting clownery over social homes & accessible jobs and culture for local people.

Congratulations to Ray Celestin on winning the Historical Dagger (and the Gold Dagger)! A good night for @MantleBooks and @panmacmillan. Still chuffed to bits at having been shortlisted, @The_CWA! https://twitter.com/The_CWA/status/1542254158505443329

THE HISTORICAL DAGGER 2022 WINNER:

Ray Celestin
‘Sunset Swing’
(Mantle, Pan Macmillan)

Great London launch for @BloodyScotland 2022 last night. A fantastic programme planned for September. Get your tickets here: https://bloodyscotland.com/events/

Remember Lee Anderson? The Tory MP and bogus chef who says you can eat your tea on 30p.

Now he’s trying to silence women for telling the truth about the Tories’ appalling 1.3% rape conviction record.

No-one is going to stop us standing up for victims.

Oh dear.
 
The Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi, has ripped up his own plans and is back to the drawing board with his very first piece of primary legislation.
 
Once again, Tory chaos is failing our children.

“Isn’t it #Brexit” asks Justin Webb on shortage of workers to pick fruit “haven’t we shot ourselves in the foot?” Robert Goodwill Con MP falsely claims we’ve enough British workers to do the work. Not true. We have more vacancies in every sector than ppl available to work #Today

@radiomukhers is currently crying into his CocoPops about the daggers, so do an elderly writer a favour and buy his tremendous book ... please ... or he'll go on about it all day ... I bought it to stop the singing, you can just buy it because its brilliant https://twitter.com/radiomukhers/status/1542422657119002625

Unbelievable! There’s just no sense of urgency with this Government. #Evusheld is the route for many immunocompromised, clinically vulnerable and clinically extremely vulnerable people to “live with COVID” too. Time for Ministers to act!

That’ll be your money he’s been burning through ✈️

As you know, in a travesty of Trumpian proportions, I was robbed of the Gold Dagger last night. While I take my case to the Supreme Court, YOU can cheer old Mukhers up by signing up to my newsletter or buying one of my books. Go on, order them here please! https://abirmukherjee.com

Didn’t win at the Daggers last night, but had a great time nonetheless. Thanks to my publishers @HarvillSecker for sticking with me and to wonderful wife for putting up with me.

We are over the moon that @MWCravenUK won the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger at last night’s @The_CWA Dagger Awards! 🥂

DEAD GROUND is the fourth instalment of the Washington Poe series and a Sunday Times bestseller.

Couldn't have asked for a better co-MC at last night's @The_CWA Daggers than the personable @VictoriaSelman - or better support than that of @AntonyJohnston, Dea Parkin @DeaWriter & @MaximJakubowski. Great to see (live!) the cream of the crime writing profession bagging awards

The Conservatives are soft on rape, soft on rapists and they don’t like to face the fact that they’re letting sex offenders off and letting survivors down. No-one is going to stop me from standing up for victims. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/30/minister-complains-speaker-labour-remarks-convictions?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

Slightly embarrassing for @trussliz that she warns of 'China extending its influence through economic coercion' - yet doesn't know how many Chinese companies the UK subjects to controls. (The answer is 1).

Our exchange @CommonsForeign 👇

I'm glad that questions are now being asked within the Home Office, but there needs to be a review of children in police custody!

Children are being detained for too long (13 hours on average!) and there's a 6 hour wait for appropriate adults.
