Theresa May suggests Boris Johnson has lost his authority with world leaders.

"As I discovered after I faced a no confidence vote, they then start to ask themselves, is it really worth negotiating with these people because will they actually be there for any period of time?"

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'

Very proud to take my seat in Parliament earlier today.

Thank you to the people of
Wakefield for the trust you have placed in me to
be your MP.

I will be your voice in
Westminster and challenge this Government
to get a better deal for Wakefield.

Very bad form. @trussliz just left the chamber without listening to even two other speeches. Her bill gives enormous powers to the government without reference to parliament and she can’t even be bothered to listen to parliament

What a week that was! So proud and privileged to call this man my friend. The weight of our fan base was on his shoulders but the manner in which he dealt with it will live with me forever. @spiritofshankly and our fan base are lucky to have him at the helm ✊ YNWA

2010 Conservatives formed a ConDem coalition Government with Lib Dems

2017 Conservatives did a £1bn Bung Parliament deal for DUP votes

2019 Conservatives benefited from Farage’s Brexit Party withdrawing in all Tory seats

Remind me again which party relies on pacts and deals?

Today, on #ArmedForcesDay we thank our Armed Forces for keeping us safe and for their service on the front line.

A Labour government would make sure our veterans get a better deal with fair access to the housing and the services they deserve.

"If they had any decency they would get out the way for the next Labour government."

‘Someone has to take responsibility’ Oliver Dowden resigning as Tory Chair - after a lifetime of avoiding it Boris Johnson will not - will his colleagues finally have the guts to rid the country of this of this pathetic narcissist?

Incredibly proud of the brilliant @simonlightwood - Labour MP for Wakefield.

The biggest ever majority on the current boundaries.

This historic result shows the progress we’ve made towards forming the next Labour government.

So proud of Wakefield’s new MP, the fantastic @simonlightwood.

This was @UKLabour’s biggest victory here since we were last in government.

This decisive result shows Labour is winning the trust of the British people, and firmly on the path to power.

The most legendary of venues to finish the tour.
Scene of Springsteen’s (in)famous first ever none USA show in 75 (@ElvisCostello was there btw) & the place I first saw @christymoore45 play ‘Does This Train Stop on Merseyside’.
We hit the Hammy Odeon @EventimApollo stage 7.30.

With the eyes of the country on Wakefield, a defeat for the Conservatives here could boot Boris Johnson out of Downing Street.

Today is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The power is in your hands. Use your vote. Vote Labour.

Today, once again people will be left without travel to work, school, or hospital appointments.

All because the Tory government couldn’t be bothered to hold any talks to resolve the strike.

Polls are open. Today is the day!

Your vote could boot Boris out of Downing St and deliver a fresh start for Wakefield.

Don’t miss your chance.

Polls are open until 10pm and you don’t need your polling card or ID to vote.

Merseyrail is a devolved train operator and does not have to involve the Department for Transport in its handling of negotiations

Amazing what can be achieved when the government isn't in the way

Boris Johnson says the Conservative government has presided over a "reduction in the cost of [public] transport."

Here's how transport costs have changed over the past ten years. #pmqs

Thousands of holiday flights cancelled.
People unable to renew their passports.
Biggest rail strike in a generation.

The Tories simply aren’t doing their job.


The Prime Minister’s answer to my question could not have been clearer. Much like his answers on #PartyGate. And PPE contracts. And proroguing Parliament. Watch this space 👀 #PMQs

Judges, enemies of the people. Lawyers, friends of the people traffickers and illegal immigrants. Human rights, unnecessary protections for foreign criminals. Government systematically destroying or undermining our most basic constitutional protections.

Ministers are failing Afghans who supported our Armed Forces.

With only 2 out of 3,000 cases processed in two months, the Government is simply not dealing with ARAP applications fast enough. Ministers must fix this scheme.

Today’s rail strike is disrupting the lives of people across the country.

The Tory government didn’t spend a single second in talks to avoid it.

This afternoon, I will be reintroducing my Public Advocate (No.2) Bill into the @HouseofCommons It has been introduced into the @UKHouseofLords by Lord Michael Wills. Govt could accept it as learning some lessons of #Hillsborough

Simon Walters says he stands "100%" by his story about Boris Johnson and Carrie that was mysteriously pulled by the Times.

‘The rule of law is anything but the preserve of the elite. It is the last, most precious protection of the weak against the whims of the strong. It is what stands between us and tyranny. Our prime minister poses a grave threat to it.’

The UK could host #Eurovision 2023 & we think we know the best city for it:

✅UNESCO City of Music
✅Enviable music scene
✅Home to the biggest band in the world
✅Year-round music events
✅The warmest welcome around

Has to be #Liverpool, right?

Letter from Lord Geidt toughens language on why he quit

He says he “could not be party to advising on potential law breaking”

Admits his resignation letter may have been too cautious

Have you been waiting months for a passport or driving licence?

Have your travel plans been disrupted?

Are you still waiting for a hospital appointment?

@meaglemp @david_conn @LFC LJ Taylor managed to get his interim report published, including going through the Salmon process, in just four months in 1989.

The IOPC have had over a year since the trials now, plus nine years to prepare, and still no firm date
