On the back of Martin Tyler’s comment regarding Hillsborough, I have invited Mr Tyler and @SkySports to meet so that I can outline to them our Real Truth Legacy Project which has once again proved to be desperately needed. #JFT97

Roy Hackett, who sadly died this week, was a leader of the Bristol bus boycott.

His work resulted in new laws banning employers from discriminating against a person because of the colour of their skin.

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.

✍️ My letter to @GregClarkMP

Disgusting comments from Martin Tyler this morning on @BBCr4today who said "Hillsborough and OTHER hooligan related incidents" Nobody challenged him!! How can he be allowed to have a career in sports journalism & perpetuate these lies @SkySportsPL #JFT97

"Hillsborough and OTHER hooligan related incidents"

Exceptionally crass comments from Martin Tyler on @BBCr4today - a man who should know much better.

Even now, people whose careers are built on football still spread these foul smears. I hope there'll be an apology sharpish.

BP and Shell report bumper profits as families are hit by rising energy bills.

What does former Shell employee Liz Truss want to do about it? Nothing.

Time we stopped handing back billions to oil and gas giants and used the money to help people instead.

Thankful that decades of determined campaigning by the Liverpool-born children of deported Chinese seamen has finally received the recognition they deserve: that the treatment of their fathers and their families was racist and coercive.

“We only ask for fairness and equal treatment”

Not too much to ask for is it? Read Joanne’s story here 👇

“From the front line to the picket line. We’re disgusted.”

We asked Joanne, NHS domestic worker at The Harbour, Blackpool, to tell her industrial action story 🗣

As we enter more action in the @OCSDispute this week. Please share Joanne’s story and advice for others 👇

@arrivanorthwest can easily afford to give @gmbnwi bus drivers a fair and proper pay rise. Companies should #PayUp. Please support @gmbnwi bus drivers in their fight for fair pay. @PaulMaccaGMB @Robbie_Mgmb @TUCNorthWest @KimJohnsonMP @IanByrneMP @PaulaBarkerMP @DanCardenMP

We’re still going strong here at The Harbour in Blackpool. Lots of public support from passing motorists. All we are asking for is fair pay in line with our NHS colleagues. #PayUpOCS #strike #Blackpool #OCS @NorthWestUNISON

Humbled by the support I received in my constituency to fight the next general election for Labour. Thank you all for your support. Let's take the fight to the Tories!

Proud to stand on the @CWUnews @CWUMersey picket line this morning to support their campaign for fair pay. Solidarity! ✊

Sunak’s attention-seeking gimmick that will do nothing to solve the worst crisis in NHS history.

This is a dangerous thin end of the wedge that will penalise the most vulnerable and would cost more in admin than it would raise.

NHS leaders agree 👇🏻

I hope everybody has a wonderful #Pride2022 in Liverpool today. I am so sorry that I can't be there in person due to my son leaving for America today.

Thanks to @MetroMayorSteve for the chance to show our shared support for our wonderful LGBTQ+ community (and of course @LFC!!).

We went to @coopuk Lawrence Road to see @pauladunn64 & celebrate our third anniversary. As a huge thank you for her support, we gave her some flowers and a card.
Paula has a heart as big as Liverpool and is a massive supporter of us @ImagineIfTrust @Love_Jasmine31

“NHS backlogs. Millions of people desperately waiting for the treatment they need. Bills rising. Everyone poorer. Increases in national insurance we promised not to do”

12 years of Tory Government - in their own words

3 years ago today, the Love Wavertree band started to play...
To celebrate, @JohnLewisRetail award us a community grant, @PaulaBarkerMP meets our volunteers, and we announce a new grant to @mysteryjpr for a project with Royal School for the Blind
