If a Labour Prime Minister and Labour Chancellor were on holiday during an economic crisis like this the Daily Mail, Telegraph, Express, Sun et al would have helicopters with cameras over their vacation homes.
Thoroughly recommend the Superbloom at the Tower of London - the slide isn’t obligatory but is fun!
Arguably, the Owen Paterson corruption began the demise of Johnson, so I hope the next PM is dense enough to follow the Mail on this…
Funny how Tories do not seem to want other Tories held to account for deceit or lawbreaking. https://www.mailplus.co.uk/edition/news/politics/209593/fury-over-rigged-partygate-probe
The damage Brexit has done to Britain, just in economic terms, is colossal. All the ‘new’ (rolled-over) trade deals combined = 0.01% of GDP. The hit from leaving = -4% of GDP. Brexit is making us worse off & contributing to the cost of living crisis: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-trade-deals-australia-new-zealand-b1959478.html
Feed in today - ensure @TfL know how the changes affect you. Southwark is hit disproportionately hard - with fewer public transport alternatives and a worse off start point.
Last chance to tell TfL how their proposed cuts to Southwark's buses, including the 12, 45, 521 and 78, will affect you and your family. Consultation closes 7 August – make sure you have your say: https://orlo.uk/WTGVW
The Tories imposed Johnson as a ‘caretaker’ Prime Minister on the UK despite 60+ Ministers resigning and knowing he was all take, caring about no one but himself:
The former commander of Kabul who worked with UK/US forces is still trapped in Afghanistan & on the run from the Taliban. That’s how dismal the evacuation plans were, how disastrously executed they were, & how abysmal the Foreign Office/Home Office have been ever since.
Can’t see a reminder from @TfL about responding to their bus cuts consultation which closes tomorrow: https://haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/busreview - but have got an email disowning their legal duty to assess the impact of the changes on people affected (including the bus workforce).

Come on @SteveBarclay - the supply of the vaccine needs boosting. Demand is there, awareness is up but supply is insufficient to address the need. The Government is failing on too many fronts.
Our monkeypox vaccination clinics at Guy’s Hospital are now appointment only.
We apologise to anyone who was planning to attend our walk-in clinic.
If you have a booked appointment please attend as normal.

There is no levelling up. The lies run deep.
EXCLUSIVE : A video shared with the New Statesman showed Sunak boasting to Conservative Party members that he was prepared to take public money out of “deprived urban areas” to help wealthy towns.
The Government is AWOL.
Prime Minister - away.
Chancellor - away.
Treasury - no one in during crisis.
As the govt faces criticism for being absent at a time of crisis, we did invite a govt minister on the show this morning but were told they didn't have time for us in their busy schedule.
If any ministers are watching, our chair in Westminster is ready and waiting for you.
Government is asleep at the wheel. Insufficient awareness; insufficient access; insufficient vaccines.

Saw this exhibit and it’s great - includes this one from 1746 with a very different Southwark, ‘New Dock’ out in its own before others joined (later became Greenland Dock). Thanks @cityoflondon & recommend others visit!

Her ‘trade deals’ gained her currency with Tory members. Turns out there’re not worth the paper they’re reprinted on from the former EU agreements.
Truss claims recession ‘not inevitable’ despite Bank of England warning https://www.independent.co.uk/tv/news/truss-recession-bank-england-inflation-v8c0e2400?utm_content=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=Main&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1659643030
Britain heading for year-long recession but PM and Chancellor nowhere to be seen
Please do submit thoughts and concerns - I’m still waiting for answers to some questions from @TfL frustratingly.
TfL consultation on cuts to bus services in central London closes Sunday 7th Aug. Below is a link to the WS submission to TfL arguing against these cuts (with many thanks for ideas to Steve Lancashire @SwarkPensioners). Pls do respond.
Prime Minister - on holiday.
Chancellor - on holiday.
Deputy PM - got the job despite holidaying when Kabul fell.
Tory Party - auditioning for the next waste of space to take a vacation in a crisis.
Tories always put themselves and their failed ideology before our country.

Good mobile surgery and delivery session on the doors in #SE16 again today.
Brexit, covid and 12 years of dismal Tory misrule all hitting the UK economy.
Truss has no solutions but more cuts and damage - and Sunak has no chance.

In the emergency budget earlier this year, Ministers pinched Labour’s windfall tax proposal and announced ‘cost of living payments’.
The payments were due in July but some people report not getting help. Check yours now! https://southwarknews.co.uk/news/mp-neil-coyle-check-you-got-your-cost-of-living-payment/

A little glimpse of London after visiting @cityoflondon archives this afternoon
What about the people who damage our country with false promises and policies which harm our people and our economy?
The UK is worse off after 12 years of Tory misrule.
People who ‘vilify’ Britain will be treated as extremists and referred to the Prevent deradicalisation programme, under plans by Rishi Sunak https://www.lbc.co.uk/news/people-who-vilify-uk-face-being-treated-as-extremists-under-rishi-sunak-plans/
Ballots are set to drop for internal elections on Wednesday!
With the successful candidates safeguarding internal party structures going into the next General Election, it is crucial that we elect candidates that are focused on putting Labour into power.
Please don’t give Dougall’s droppings the coverage craved.
Focus on other fabrications.
Good to see @BrandonLewis out this morn
His almost weekly defences of Johnson, like this: https://amp.lbc.co.uk/radio/presenters/tom-swarbrick/brandon-lewis-defends-pm-after-pledge/ are set to continue under Truss who he says hasn’t u-turned (despite her u-turn)
Not good for the UK, short term. But good for anyone who wants the sh*tshow to end
The Government failed to plan to evacuate allies from Afghanistan. Failed to manage the chaos last year. Failed to work with councils for a longterm settlement ever since.
Letter seen by @BBCNewsnight from Refugees Minister tells council leaders more than 2 thousand additional properties needed to house afghans staying in hotels. Govt says there’s shortage of social housing - incl for British with many on waiting list .. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-62393625
Truss here and her backer Lewis on @BBCr4today just show contempt for the truth and take people for fools. Continuity Johnson indeed.
"I never had any intention of changing the terms and conditions of teachers and nurses. But what I want to be clear about is I will not be going ahead with the regional pay boards”
Liz Truss says her policy on regional pay boards has been “misrepresented”
Come on @lb_southwark @VeoliaUK - this needs sorting urgently.
Rubbish hasn’t been collected for some days at the Draper Estate, Elephant & Castle
Oh dear. The lady is for turning: Truss won’t now be cutting public sector pay despite announcing that her regional salary policy would save £9 billion.
U-turn if you want to. The lady’s not for turning.
Cost of living crisis, chaos at airports, delays at ports, passport backlog, NHS waiting lists, energy bills soaring, barristers on strike, homelessness rocketing, foodbanks overstretched and Johnson AWOL to the end.
Boris Johnson is off on holiday - with only weeks to go until he steps down

Powerful and gripping new report from @salvationarmyuk shows that help has dropped despite rising mental ill health. Ministers can’t level up if they can’t get people off the streets.
Every day a homeless person dies from suicide, drugs or alcohol in England and Wales, but potentially life-saving support is underfunded according to new figures in our latest report. https://bit.ly/3Sj3HA4 (1/4)
Sound the irony klaxon: turns out the Thatcherite wannabe is for turning.
Tory leadership candidate Liz Truss backtracks on plan to link public sector pay to local living costs
Homelessness is rising dramatically again under these heartless Tories who are too busy planning their next wave of cuts and attacks on our public services. Sign up to raise awareness and funds for this great local project!

What did the UK do to suffer a pandemic combined with a plague of Tory ar*eholes? You can’t level up by cutting pay.
Further proof levelling up was just another con from the Conservatives.
Capitulating to the Taliban could see Afghanistan re-emerge as a base for international terrorism. That abandonment of our values and of our allies who worked for the UK and US has consequences.
'Justice has been delivered' says Joe Biden after Osama Bin Laden's former right hand man is killed in a drone strike
This Government has thrown £120 million at Rwanda. For less than nothing. Ministers will probably call for more of the same in response to these stats.
They have no fix to the solution and are squandering crucial public funds in a cost of living crisis. Beyond extraordinary.
The number of migrants crossing the Channel in July was the highest monthly total of the year so far, with 3,683 making the journey in 90 boats, according to government figures https://trib.al/kULCo2f
Crime rising further under a Tory Party that allowed a lawbreaker to overstay his welcome in Downing Street.

The cost of living crisis may not feature in the Tory infighting and nastiness but it features heavily in real people’s lives.

Another day, another meeting with a constituency business negatively affected by the delays and incompetence in the Home Office. A Government department actively preventing work in the UK and denying the Treasury income tax and national insurance contributions. Chaotic.

The sad truth is that UK passports have been downgraded by this Tory Government due to their blinkered, harmful ideology.

Wow. Very sad that halfway through this Parliament and the Mental Health Bill is still not a priority for a Government too busy tearing itself apart to prioritise people in crisis.
Heading home after night shifts responsible as Duty Super for 15 South & West London Boroughs
I’d estimate at least 75-80% of officer time spent helping people & other agencies with suicidal, despondent & mental ill health, almost all of which hasn’t any bearing on actual crime
Sunak on @BBCr4today says we need to end the “failed economic orthodoxy of the last 10 years”. He’s the former Tory Chancellor & Chief Sec to the Treasury for 3 of them.
A daily reminder that even Tories know 12 years of Tory rule has failed the UK.
