Our servicemen and women in the Armed Forces defend our democracy and our country.

Their role is the ultimate public service – and no matter how adversaries seek to undermine our beliefs, we will always believe that our country is worth defending.

.@RachelReevesMP says the UK should be incredibly proud of the global success of its financial and related professional services industry, the world's biggest exporter of these services.

That’ll be your money he’s been burning through ✈️

NEW: We’re now seeing the longest decline of UK incomes ever.

It’s sapping household spending and leaving us exposed.

The Tories are failing working people.

All they offer are stagnant wages, low growth and higher taxes.

We need a stronger economy.

What a wonderful evening meeting Black, Asian and ethnic minority businesses at our @UKLabour reception tonight.

Inspiring entrepreneurs, brilliant businesses and industry leaders like these are shaping the future of the landscape with their formidable talent.

Fantastic meeting with @vaughangething this afternoon to talk about growing our economy, building strong procurement practices, and the brilliant work Labour in power in Wales is doing.

.@AngelaRayner absolutely right - the first instinct of this Tory government is to load higher and higher taxes on working people.

No answers AT ALL on how they're going to tackle the problems that face our economy or our country today.

The game is up. #PMQs

NEW: Under the Conservatives the amount of money stolen from families and businesses through fraud has reached record highs.

Britain deserves better than the Tory “whack-a-mole” approach to fraud.

Wonderful to visit real living wage pub the Artichoke in Norwich.

With the cost of living crisis, a living wage makes a huge difference to people - but businesses like this are also struggling with rising costs.

Labour will build the stronger economy we need to tackle this.

Britain’s backlog is a result of a decade of Tory mismanagement and sheer incompetence.

Britain deserves better.

The Tories must get a grip now, stop with their sticking plaster approach and sort out the bottlenecks and delays they’ve caused.

Today I called for the Chancellor to pay at least the real living wage for all those who work for government - including contractors.

He refused.

The Tories are choosing to trap people in poverty pay as the cost of living crisis worsens.

Working people deserve so much better.

Months of waiting for a passport or driving licence.

Travel plans disrupted.

Hospital appointment and court dates delayed.

This is Backlog Britain - and it's the result of 12 years of Tory mismanagement of our economy.

Britain deserves better.

Why do the Conservatives blame working people for rising inflation?

They simply won't face up to the fact that a decade of Tory wage stagnation is making matters worse.

@wesstreeting & I spoke to @Anoosh_C about how Labour will build a stronger economy.

Under the Tories, your bills and taxes have risen to historic highs.

Labour has a plan to take on the Tory cost of living crisis and build a stronger economy.

Last week, @wesstreeting & I visited Leeds General Infirmary to see innovations the hospital is driving forwards.

Despite government dragging its feet on delivering the new hospital it promised, the teams here are achieving so much. 

Labour will make our NHS fit for the future.

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the country’s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.


Such a lovely day campaigning in Norwich North, followed by a quick trip to the Artichoke pub - a real living wage employer.

This weekend across the country, we'll celebrate Jo Cox’s #MoreInCommon mission with the #GreatGetTogether.

We'll celebrate community events that bridge divides and champion what unites us, bringing us together.

The PM just admitted on @BBCr4today that the economy “has not grown as it should.”
Lack of growth has hit wages, tax revenues and national prosperity.
I’d like to thank him for confirming what Labour has been saying is true.

People have the lowest consumer confidence in 50 years.

This is what happens when an out of touch Tory government increases taxes on working people, squeezes wages, and has no plan to get the economy back on track.


So proud of Wakefield’s new MP, the fantastic @simonlightwood.

This was @UKLabour’s biggest victory here since we were last in government.

This decisive result shows Labour is winning the trust of the British people, and firmly on the path to power.

Congratulations @simonlightwood!

You’re going to be a fantastic MP.

So proud that Wakefield will have the fresh start it deserves with a Labour MP.

A huge well done to all of those who campaigned so hard to make it happen.

Great reception out on the #labourdoorstep today for @simonlightwood - managed to squeeze in a quick ice cream break too!🍦Six hours till polls close #votelabour

Good to hear coverage of the UK’s lack of access to the #Horizon science programme on #r4today this morning.

Exactly the sort of area @UKLabour will deliver on by focusing on practical improvements to our trading relationship with the EU

With the eyes of the country on Wakefield, a defeat for the Conservatives here could boot Boris Johnson out of Downing Street.

Today is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The power is in your hands. Use your vote. Vote Labour.

Polls are open! Getting ready to head out on the #labourdoorstep.

Today, vote for @simonlightwood for the fresh start Wakefield deserves. #voteLabour

Wonderful to meet the amazing staff and see the brilliant work going on at Leeds General Infirmary today with @wesstreeting.

The government promised a new hospital here - but it's another promise that's been broken.

Labour will make sure our NHS is fit for the future.

Thousands of holiday flights cancelled.
People unable to renew their passports.
Biggest rail strike in a generation.

The Tories simply aren’t doing their job.


NEW: Inflation up at 9.1% today.

Inflation is pushing family finances to the brink - but the low wage spiral many face isn’t new.

It’s a result of a decade of Tory mismanagement of our economy.

Labour will build the high wage, high growth, stable inflation economy we deserve.

"Johnson wants you to think his failing government is handling the economy well. That is yet another lie. The Tories are overseeing a criminal waste of Britain’s potential," @Alison_McGovern writes: https://labourlist.org/2022/06/the-conservatives-are-overseeing-a-criminal-waste-of-britains-potential/

Britain is home to millions of creative entrepreneurs and start-ups.

But under the Tories, some British businesses are unable to thrive.

The next Labour government will work with businesses to make Britain the best place to start and grow a business.

This week I launched Labour’s new start-up review, to make Britain the best place to start and grow a business.

Our esteemed panel will help us make sure start-ups here can reach their full potential, in one of the most innovative countries in the world.
