Decision to suspend botched #SmartMotorways rollout, especially those without a hard shoulder, has made it absolutely clear: they are still unsafe and unfit for purpose.

Govt must install critical technology and complete remedial works ASAP to ensure safety of motorists. (1/2)

I’m still harrowed by emails from constituents during lockdown. The mother who wanted to hold her newborn up at the window of her dying mother, the lady who wanted to visit her dying sister, women who laboured alone, those who died alone..& they were partying & laughing at us. https://twitter.com/REWearmouth/status/1482084467044925442

Boris Johnson's 'wine time Fridays' - No10 staff drinks every week in pandemic https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/boris-johnsons-wine-time-fridays-25951853

After visiting Ukraine this week, @JohnHealey_MP and I have set Labour's plans for a new approach to European security for Britain: hard-headed, clear eyed, with robust and consistent leadership to protect our national security and that of our allies

Boris Johnson has made himself judge and jury of his own case.

Avoiding any consequences of his actions. Shameful!

Sept 2020 Priti Patel said she’d call police to report neighbours holding parties.

Today she’s defending Boris Johnson after he admitted doing just that.

As Home Sec she’s responsible for upholding the rule of law for all. Not one rule for your mates & another for everyone else

I've been on the media this morning so my accent and grammar are being critiqued.

I wasn't Eton educated, but growing up in Stockport I was taught integrity, honesty and decency.

Doesn't mater how you say it. Boris Johnson is unfit to lead.

PM must have said half a dozen times now that he "apologises" and "wishes things had been done differently." This is a humiliating #PMQs for Boris Johnson.

Families couldn't say goodbye to loved ones, weddings cancelled, births missed, support groups unable to meet and businesses destroyed, at the same time, Downing Street partied. I share the anger of my constituents - it is utterly obscene.

It is shameful to hide behind an internal probe, spokespeople or civil servants. It is time to really take responsibility Prime Minister and resign.

The government's flagship covid education recovery scheme is failing children and taxpayers. It has reached just 10% of this year's target. Labour's set out costed plans to deliver small group tutoring. Ministers must secure our children's future👇🏻

The Prime Minister had the opportunity to finally come clean about Downing Street’s lockdown-breaking parties.

But he didn’t even turn up.

Boris Johnson holds the British public in contempt.

Pathetic response to my question about Chinese-made Covid tests.

British test manufacturers are allowed to sell all over the world but not in the UK. Instead, we're buying millions of tests made in China.

What does the government have against buying British?

Ministers’ failure to get US tariffs lifted on U.K. steel exports is putting jobs at risk ⁦@politico⁩ - it’s just the most recent example of poor negotiating by ⁦@annietrev⁩ and ⁦@tradegovuk⁩ https://www.politico.eu/article/uk-labor-unions-jobs-risk-us-steel-tariffs-row/

Today @DanielZeichner was delighted to be in King’s Lynn to meet Lynn Shellfish and hear about the range of challenges facing inshore fishers and processors.

EXCL: Email obtained by @itvnews proves over 100 staff were invited to drinks party in No 10 garden at height of lockdown to “make the most of the lovely weather”.

We’re told PM and his wife attended, with staff invited to “bring your own booze!”

Heart warming moment today when a young man called to see us, after eight long years. The once challenging young man has grown to be a true gent, he's in a long term relationship, a father with a secure well paid job. He is now keen to support others to transform their lives

@marykfoy @GlindonMary @LizTwistMP might sound like a broken record @DominicRaab told the pay review to adhere to his letter my utilities bill has changed from £100 to now asking for £210 per month pension contributions up in 4/12 as well as n/I. Inflation at 5+% what do I do ?

Clear confirmation that the Conservatives oppose the windfall tax tells you exactly whose side they are on- and it's not the British people struggling with their energy bills.

Labour will shape a new Britain in which you and your family get the security, prosperity and respect that you deserve.

Because everyone has the right to feel safe.

Everyone should have the opportunity to thrive.

And everyone should be valued.

Ministers at the Department for Education have heard of the film “28 Days Later”, and the Department has now made its own version.

Provisional title, “620 Days Later”. https://twitter.com/alexburghart/status/1478804648320503817

Today I have sent a letter to @KwasiKwarteng with concerns around the Post Office Horizon Scandal compensation scheme & that it exclusively excludes the 555 litigants, from the civil proceedings from claiming.

Thank you to the 93 MPs who have signed & supported this letter.

Our opening hours for the next few days…

We’ll have more info on the rest of next week & NYE as soon as there’s an announcement as to what’s happening!

I’m pleased to hear the JCVI have been clear that children who are clinically vulnerable, or who live with clinically vulnerable adults, should get the vaccine. It’s good news for them and good news for us all. 1/3

As Cabinet bickers about whether to #lockdown again it’s worth reminding you there are still no plans to support local businesses or workers, they don’t need uncertainty before Christmas.

NE Labour MPs know this & have been pushing @RishiSunak for days.

True to form, the Prime Minister has put his party before the public.

Businesses wonder if they can keep trading, and families are frantic about whether they will see each other this Christmas.

Today’s lack of clarity is shameful.

Boris Johnson is unfit to lead.

It is a complete abdication of responsibility for both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor to miss another vital Cobra meeting yesterday.

They are too busy looking over their shoulders at the Conservative party to provide the leadership our country needs.

Our collab with @riggandfurrow raised nearly £500 through donating 100% of each pint to @TheBAYFoodbank

On Friday we used this money to drop off fresh meat to go out to families in need this Xmas.

Huge thank you to @riggandfurrow who donated the beer to us!

As if we didn’t already know, Lord Frost resigning shows the government’s in chaos. The country needs leadership not a lame duck PM whose MPs and cabinet have lost faith in him. Boris Johnson needs to apologise to the public and explain what his plan is for the next few weeks.

We've got your Xmas sorted with gift vouchers & beer hampers available all the way up to Xmas eve.

Drop by or send us a message & we'll do the rest...

It's now clear we are facing another difficult winter, yet once again the Tories don't have a plan for our schools. I've called for a series of measures to keep children learning together. Staff, pupils and parents need more than a holding response👇🏻

Although I am the Speaker, I am still a constituency MP and it is my duty to represent my constituents on local issues that matter to them.
