It’s scandalous that Rishi Sunak funnelled public money away from deprived areas and gave it to affluent Tory shires.

The Levelling Up Secretary needs to urgently investigate what changes were made to funding formulas and what justified the changes.

"There's nothing that I could say about either of them that they haven't already said about each other"

Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford responds to comments made by Tory leadership hopefuls Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss about him and his government

Sky-high inflation, rocketing energy bills & Bank of England warnings of recession on the horizon.

Whichever continuity candidate wins, their low-growth, low-wage plans won’t fix the damage caused by 12 years of Tory rule.

Only Labour can provide the fresh start Britain needs.

Liz Truss would cost the taxpayer billions in unfunded promises, whilst cutting pay for working people.

A Labour government would immediately prioritise boosting economic growth and fixing the Tory cost of living crisis.

Rishi Sunak would hit working people with high taxes and fail to grow the economy.

Great to join Mark Sullivan of the Bridge 46 to Five Locks Canal Group to discuss regeneration of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, which is such a great local resource here in Torfaen.

Thank you to your group for all your work. @MBACTrust @CanalRiverTrust

Delighted to visit The Hwb in Blaenavon to hear their exciting plans for the future - funded by @TNLComFundWales.

Thank you to everyone at The Hwb for the work they do.

What a fresh, original novel this is @MaddieMortimer.

Having supported someone through chemotherapy it struck a chord with me.

Congratulations on making the @TheBookerPrizes longlist and best wishes for the continued success of the book.

Here’s @JoStevensLabour back in May asking the questions that still haven’t been answered.

Britain deserves better than this government. Enough is enough.

Very proud of @TorfaenDolphins’ Meghan Willis @snoozyj competing in the pool in the #CommonwealthGames2022 @birminghamcg22 this evening. Well done to @becky_lewis07 too. Great effort! @TeamWales.

We’ve seen today exactly what Liz Truss thinks of public sector workers.
 
It’s clear her priority would be to slash their pay packets and send local economies backwards.
 
12 years of the Tories and this is what we’re left with.

Britain deserves better.

Liz Truss is declaring war on herself with this recipe for levelling down. 

A race to the bottom that would cut the pay of school and NHS workers outside London, widening the divide and punishing the North.

This out-of-touch Tory Government’s commitment to levelling up is dead.

The Tory #CostOfLivingCrisis threatens Britain’s fish & chips.

Price increases in last year:
📈 Flour and cereals 19.3%
📈 Fish 8%
📈 Oils & fats 16.6%

@UKLabour would support British chippies by scrapping & replacing business rates with a fairer system

Under the Conservatives, our economy has ground to a halt.

That is why the number one mission of the next Labour government will be economic growth.

Well done @Lionesses on a great performance through the tournament. Any girls in Torfaen want to take up football, I’m happy to point you in the right direction - especially if you want to play for Griffithstown u12s, we’ve got lots of great girls playing already 👍⚽️

Britain is stuck thanks to a succession of Tory governments.

As leader of the Labour Party, I’m focused on getting us into power.

Only then can we deliver the change that trade unions and working people want and need.

Train drivers and staff kept this country going during the pandemic.

They deserve a fair pay rise and respect.

Grant Shapps should stop boycotting the talks, do his job and get around the table to agree a deal.

It is time for a Labour government committed to growing our economy. We would:

✅ Cut VAT on home energy bills
✅ Insulate 19 million homes
✅ Cut small business rates
✅ Buy, make and sell more in Britain

It's a disgrace that thousands of steelworkers are facing an uncertain future because Conservative ministers are too busy tearing themselves apart to actually govern (1/2)

https://gov.wales/written-statement-tata-steel-uk

Steelmaking is of fundamental importance to both the Welsh and UK economy.

Thankfully the Welsh Government is standing up for our steel industry while the Conservatives have their out of office on (2/2)

The Labour Party has a plan to: grow our economy, revitalise our public services and re-energise our communities.

Only Labour can provide the fresh start Britain needs.

Delighted to see that seven of Torfaen’s parks and green spaces have been awarded the Green Flag title.

We are incredibly proud of our open spaces, so thank you to all staff and volunteers that made this happen👇

"Nobody who’s been subjected to sexual or domestic violence should be waiting a year or more for their case to come to court"

@Keir_Starmer unveils Labour's plan to fast-track rape and domestic violence cases through courts in @guardian 👇

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jul/26/labour-fast-track-rape-domestic-violence-cases-courts

Important discussion with @MayorLpool, police chiefs and domestic abuse organisations.

Victims subjected to rape and domestic abuse have been let down by this Tory government. 1/2

As Director of Public Prosecutions, I worked with victims and their families to strengthen domestic abuse legislation.

Labour would fast-track rape and domestic violence cases so victims get the justice they deserve. 2/2

Out running first thing this morning past Pontypool’s iconic Folly Tower - the views all around are stunning.
