Well done to @KeeleyMP for raising this at PMQs and compelling the Government to act sensibly on this issue. And slava ukraini! 🇺🇦
Today, I have waived the visa fees for two Ukrainian orchestras coming to the UK to perform at classical music events this summer, including the @BBCProms and @EdIntFest. The UK welcomes you and we continue in our unwavering support for Ukraine. #WeStandWithUkraine
The day the Tories should be focused on policing/safety & Minister Malthouse makes a giant backside of himself. He backed years of police cuts & oversees a pathetic prosecution rate.
@SadiqKhan has boosted police funding & challenged the Met to improve
Rayner responds to Raab:
“My advice to the deputy prime minister is to cut out the snobbery & brush up on his opera. The Marriage of Figaro is the story of a working-class woman who gets the better of a privileged but dim-witted villain.”
If you think abortion rights are safe in the UK, you aren’t paying attention.

Tory MP Danny Kruger says he doesn’t agree that “women have an absolute right to bodily autonomy".
I’ve heard Tories say he was a massive winker.
Dominic Raab winking at Angela Rayner in a totally normal way during PMQs
Looking forward to hearing the two new MPs welcomed to their places at #PMQs - even if it is from Dominic ‘the sea was closed’ Raab today.
Secretary of State for Work & Pensions was asked in @CommonsWorkPen if her Government could help people with rising rents experiencing the cost of living crisis. She said rents are falling in some parts of the country. Her message to workers in London is move elsewhere… 🤦🏻♂️
Love this spot at the Elephant when all the beautiful hollyhocks are out!
Hosted this amazing panel in Parliament yesterday - and heard their collective experience of living and working in Hong Kong as their rights disappeared under the Communist dictatorship.
What a session! With @nathanlawkc @EvanEvfowler @coyleneil @JFSteinfeld @krislc & @benedictrogers at @IndexCensorship and @thecfhk panel on #hongkong in #house-of-commons @UKParliament
His interest in tanks is partly, given Johnson will be gone by Christmas, planting one firmly on his lawn.

Lovely view on the way in today - with no scaffolding
3 plonkers playing with a printer, only highlighting Tory divisions when the cost of living crisis is affecting millions across the country.
When somebody asked us to join the party we thought it was one with curry and beer. Apologies @UKLabour for the misunderstanding and we won’t be defecting afraid #RedWall
The #Bankside edition of the Great Get Together, an annual event held in memory of murdered MP Jo Cox, is taking place TODAY (Saturday June 25) in #Borough.

Lots of shock and anger in New York about the horrific Supreme Court decision to end access to abortion healthcare. Massive turnout for this rally, focused on human rights, the return to the ‘50s - and concerns about guns being better protected in the US now than women.
Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues—attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.
Horrendous. This will ruin lives. Every time UK Ministers attack our judges, courts and lawyers I fear the slippery slope towards American style politicisation. This decision exemplifies why we cannot afford to go down that route. It is horrific.
BREAKING: The Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, eliminating the constitutional right to abortion nationwide https://cnn.it/3NcYJBm
UK Foreign Policy Committee parlmt delegation’s gladly received @UKRinUN, great opportunity to discuss priorities bilateral & multilateral cooperation. Special thanks @BWoodward_UN @TomTugendhat @StewartMcDonald @aliciakearns @Royston_Smith @coyleneil @HenrySmithUK @liambyrnemp
Tories claim they ‘got Brexit done’ but it’s British people who got done over - another report identifies the damage this Government has done to the UK
The findings go on to say leaving the EU has pushed up the cost of living, seen investment fall and the UK lose market share in key areas https://trib.al/CIfH8tL
In Washington DC with the Foreign Affairs select committee - great to have a reminder of Southwark #SE1 at the Ambassador’s residence today!
- planes/airports: flights axed, queues out doors & passports backlog
- trains: melting down next week
- automobiles: soaring fuel costs & trucking delays at borders

The Shameless Farce of Boris Johnson’s Attempt to Send Refugees to Rwanda | The New Yorker. Media around the world reporting on 🇬🇧 like this.

NEW: I've done an analysis of every time No10 announced a phone call between Boris Johnson and President Zelensky and it's amazing how many have coincided with his worst crises (full disclosure, No10 have told me this thesis is "ludicrous") https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/how-boris-johnsons-calls-with-president-zelensky-have-been-announced-just-after-the-pms-biggest-crises-1691400

NEW: Boris Johnson has cancelled a Wakefield by-election campaign visit and Q&A with Northern Tories today.
Sounds like the order came down from the top last night - CCHQ and No10 people are baffled.
Today had been marked out in the No10 grid as "LEADERSHIP".
‘You’re on your own’ says a Tory Government chock full of self-serving, millionaire tax dodgers.
Cost of living: Government 'can't solve every problem or save every business', says minister http://news.sky.com/story/cost-of-living-government-cant-solve-every-problem-or-save-every-business-says-minister-12635382
Amazing to see the kids learning to plant & grow @SurreySqSchool #SE17 this morning in their fab space with Christina & the team - & to meet ‘Phoenix Priscilla’ (Queen of the Snails!). The 10am spring onion snack was also, err, breath-enhancing…!
I’m looking forward to visiting a school, welcoming a different school to Parliament and my advice surgery today but it’s doing to be very hot! ☀️
Drink lots of water and keep an eye out for others, esp older neighbours please! Take care
Johnson’s Government has again breached the Ministerial code. “Deliberately”. No wonder Geidt resigned. Anyone with any decency would have gone. And anyone with any decency would be seeking to end this maladministration.
🔥 Lord Geidt’s resignation letter expressed fury over partygate, but it’s another unspecified potential breach of code that pushed him.
“The idea that any PM might to any degree be in the business of deliberately breaching his own code is an affront…I can have no part in this”
An important day to remember, to think of the family, to focus on her campaigns, to emphasise #moreincommon and to do more to tackle hate. That we have the best ‘Great Get Together’ in Southwark fills me with hope!
6 years ago today, on 16 June 2016, Jo Cox was murdered while on her way to a constituency surgery in Batley and Spen. Those closest to Jo lost a devoted mum, daughter, sister, wife, friend, and colleague. The UK lost a talented parliamentarian, campaigner, and humanitarian.
Great to attend the Walworth Community Pub event today and lovely to see so much interest in the idea!
Join us for a Walworth Community Pub taster event @ Walworth Living Room, Surrey Sq. next Wed 15th 7:30-9:30pm...
🚨 BREAKING: Lord Geidt has resigned as the PM’s ethics advisor.
Tory Ministers are rule breakers like their boss, but the Home Office holds the public and Parliament in contempt in not revealing the millions of £ being squandered on unlawful policies - funds which could help Brits in this cost of living crisis!
There's 4 weeks left to submit evidence to @FoodbanksAPPG's inquiry investigating how best to support people facing financial crisis.

There are a few Tories still prepared to stand up for Churchill's legacy it seems.
Shame their PM is more Churchill the dog #OperationSaveBigDog
"I don't think it's right for us, as a party, to abandon our historic commitments to the European convention. It was British Conservative lawyers who wrote it after the war"

Johnson repelling ordinary Tory voters. Tory MPs only have themselves to blame! https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/wakefield-by-election-boris-johnson-conservative-voters-1681471
An unlawful referendum suggests SNP are willing to break the law.
Suggesting Scexit is the solution to Brexit is also an insult to people’s intelligence.
Sturgeon is emulating Johnson, not tackling the problems he’s creating.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says a way forward to a Scottish independence vote should be found with or without the backing of Westminster

Nice to speak with the Taiwan Representative to the UK, Kelly Wu-Chiao Hsieh, again today in Parliament to discuss partnership work on emerging technologies, mutual national interests and shared security threats, including the Chinese Communist Party.
Good to be @BlackfriarsSett this morning for the launch of ‘A Helping Hand’ - albeit sad that so many hardworking local representatives & organisations attending today from the same community are still battling avoidable poverty in 2022!
Glad to see the Church of England take such a strong stance on this. It’s an anti-British policy from a Government that is harming our country, our economy and our international standing.
Rwanda policy "shames" Britain, Church of England leaders tell Boris Johnson https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/rwanda-policy-shames-britain-church-27223826?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebar
Johnson said he had an "oven-ready" deal.
Johnson said he 'got Brexit done'.
Johnson says he isn't breaking the law.
But Johnson also said there were no parties.
The courts will decide & our economy & British people will suffer whilst he & his Ministers continue to lie.
UK publishes plans to ditch parts of Northern Ireland Protocol - but EU says move would break international law https://bbc.in/3MQRrTw
Tories claimed previously that NI plans represented a 'limited & specific' breaking of the law. Ministers have now gone full Johnson & just lie. The UK faces legal action & economic sanctions for lawbreaking. Our economy needs help, not more harm caused by awful Tory decisions.
"There are very real problems" faced in Northern Ireland, says Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, it's "causing a feeling of inequality between the different communities of Northern Ireland"
"We are acting within international law"
A Ukrainian grandmother who fled the war with her daughter to go live with her granddaughter in #Rotherhithe has said that #Southwark Park "is like a paradise".
@Southwark1869 @Ukraine #StandWithUkraine
Lord Chris Patten, a former Tory chair who led a review of policing in Northern Ireland, said Johnson's new NI legislation - over-riding the 2020 Brexit deal - was “complete madness”
