I’ve seen the impact bullying can have on people. Whether it's in our schools in #Preston or online it simply is not acceptable. That's why I’m supporting the youth charity @DianaAward's @AntiBullyingPro campaign. Find out more at: http://DontFaceItAlone.com
#SpeakOutAboutBullying

We are also pleased to recognise the contribution of @Daviddjward, inaugural Director General from 2001 - 2013, who oversaw our creation and enduring focus - to deliver equitable #streetsforlife

📺 Today Labour and Co-operative MP @MpHendrick has tabled major proposed legislation which has the potential to help grow the co-operative movement - we look forward to supporting its progress 🐝

@MpHendrick has today formally introduced a Private Members Bill with a range of necessary reforms for #cooperatives #friendlysocieties and #mutualinsurers (1/4)

I am proud to launch my Private Members' Bill which would make it easier for #cooperatives to get started in the UK, get more investment & keep working in the best interest of their members. After the campaign to takeover LV= last year, we must make sure this never happens again.

Campaigning today for the #Wakefieldbyelection with @connord_291 and Mick Murray from @bradsouthlabour. #Wakefield previously had a Conservative MP now they live in Hope. 😉
@UKLabour @prestonlabour

This #VolunteersWeek, I have been proud to celebrate the unstoppable volunteers, knitters, befrienders, mentors, drivers, gardeners, environmentalists, mental health supporters, #YouthSocialAction ambassadors and so many others in #Preston for all that they do. Thank you.

Brexit isn’t done.
180k Britons are dead.
40 hospitals aren’t built.
Life expectancy is falling.
Poverty is rife.
Food bank use is exponential.
The NHS is on its knees.
Inequality is worse than ever.
Teens are being sent to Rwanda.

But yeah, sure. The big calls right.

#PlatinumJubileeCelebration 1980s Music in the (Worden) Park in Leyland, Lancs. Just seen Carol Decker, T'Pau. Tony Hadley on the way! With @PrestonCity Cllr Martyn Rawlinson @rolly. Thanks @SRLabour

Congratulations to HRH the #Queen on her #PlatinumJubileeCelebration at Buckingham Palace today! It doesn't seem like twenty years since she came to Preston to award us City status for her Golden Jubilee.

"This sense that they are stuck with Johnson, whose personal approval ratings have been sinking since the start of the scandal last year, is freaking out Conservatives", writes Luke McGee | Analysis https://cnn.it/3LPPgze

The Fishwick 247 energy scheme started by the coalition government is a scandal of epic proportions. Implemented by energy companies and sub contractors, it left homes damp and uninhabitable. Today Labour and the @NEA_UKCharity start to make some headway on the repairs…

After years of battling for #Fishwick residents affected by poorly installed insulation, we’re finally getting the scaffolding up and remedial work started on the first set of homes organised by @NEA_UKCharity, working with @yourseddon and @AldrockUK https://www.nea.org.uk/fishwick/

Just over a week to go for the @PrestonCityMela which proudly returns to Avenham Park on 4th June. A triple celebration of the #QueensPlatinumJubilee, 25th Mela anniversary and 20 years since #Preston got City Status. Celebrate with South Asian culture, food, dance and music!

Dartford Tories laughing at the opening of local foodbanks reminds us how out of touch they are with the challenges communities face and a lack of a plan to tackle the cost of living. Pleasure to join @Dartford_Labour tonight to hear their ambitions for the next Labour Government

Thanks @MpHendrick for your #Preston Jobcentre visit. Fantastic feedback on how much we help our local customers "It was informative and good to hear about the great work JCP staff are doing in getting people into work. Especially young people and people with a health condition"

Burned to the ground last night. Watched Star Wars here, Back to the Future, Rocky I to IV in one sitting, Ghostbusters, fell in love with @MollyRingwald in Pretty in Pink, the iconic films of my childhood… https://twitter.com/bernieblac/status/1527734626428588033

Before Brexit, British citizens had the right to live and work in 32 countries (taking UK as one country), in most cases with the same basic rights as citizens of those countries. Now, they have the right to live and work in two countries. That seems like a worse deal to me.

This week is #DementiaActionWeek. Met today with two groups tackling the Dementia crisis. Firstly with the @alzheimerssoc to look at the work of the Dementia Diagnostics Hubs.
Then with Lawrence Geller, entrepreneur and major funder of dementia care homes and research in the UK.

Catch my interview on Politics North West talking about the disgraceful lack of Govt help on soaring energy bills and shameful numbers of food banks in this country. #Preston #costoflivingcrisis @BBCNWT https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0017hfh/politics-north-west-15052022

On duty yesterday and today at the EU-UK Parliamentary Partnership Assembly in Brussels trying to 'patch up' the relationship post-Brexit. Good start to what is likely to be a long process.

Connor Dwyer @connord_291 the Labour Candidate for Ingol Ward campaigning tonight noticed one of my general election posters in a window. Must have been there since 2019!

Wishing all my Muslim constituents in #Preston, colleagues and friends a very Happy Eid over the Bank Holiday weekend #EidMubarak2022

UK TANKS TO POLAND

The right call to help backfill Polish tanks now heading to Ukraine.

I recall a jolly exchange with the PM (pre-invasion) on why our own tank numbers should NOT be cut.

As Russian aggression increase demands on our Army I hope these cuts will now be reversed

Not enough people understand what it's like to live with Parkinson's. I'm grateful to have met members of the community and @ParkinsonsUK to mark #WorldParkinsonsDay and pledge my support to #Preston constituents affected by the condition. #LetsTalkAboutParkinsons

Tomorrow marks the biggest fall in the value of the basic rate of benefits in 50 years. It follows a decade where benefits lost value in 8 of the last 10 years.

And comes just as the cost of essentials are rocketing

Privatisation of @channel4 an ideological move with no manifesto mandate - by Salisbury Convention Lords can block - would undermine a unique public service broadcaster making it answerable to overseas shareholders - no doubt Tory mates and donors to make a killing on flotation

We’ve been here before. In 1974 inflation rose because of a global oil price crisis. The new Labour Chancellor, Denis Healey, increased benefits +pensions, subsidized essential foods, cut VAT, and increased taxes on incomes over £4000 (£44,000 in 2021). Sunak prefers poverty.

🌹 On Your Side 🌹

Excellent message from @Keir_Starmer in Bury today.

Labour councils and councillors up and down the country will help you through the Cost of Living Crisis - the Tories simply don’t care enough.

The Queen's Commonwealth Essay 2022 competition is now open for children in #Preston aged under 14 and 14-18yrs. Winners will get a week long trip to London and an awards ceremony at Buckingham Palace. @RoyalCWSociety

Go to http://www.royalcwsociety.org for more details. Good luck!

This is the action of thugs.

It is a scandal, and an assault on British seafaring.

We cannot allow overseas billionaires to attack this proud workforce.

Some people in #Preston having been asking me how they can help people fleeing their homes in #Ukraine. You can find helpful ways to support them at: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/ukraine-what-you-can-do-to-help #StandwithUkraine

Delighted that @MoorParkTweets in #Preston is taking part in Regional Heats of The National Reading Champions Quiz! A great initiative from @Literacy_Trust and @ALCS_UK to build a love of reading. Good luck to Moor Park students taking part this month. #NRCQuiz22 #literacy
