Under this Tory government, Britain’s growth has ground to a halt.

And they are too distracted by their own failings to deal with it.

Labour has a plan to tackle the cost of living crisis and build a stronger, more secure economy.

👨‍⚕️ 🏥🧑‍⚕️ My partner is a nurse at an NHS hospital. It pains me to say it but he is burnt out and - with the target of 50,000 nurses promised by the Tories missed - there is no end in sight. The workforce crisis is the main threat to the NHS. 🧵

London stands with Oslo.

Our thoughts and solidarity are with the victims, their families and all those affected by this horrific attack, hours before Oslo's #Pride was due to take place.

#LoveIsLove and hate will never win.

Chilling, heartbreaking news from Oslo.

My prayers are with the victims and their families.

This is why Pride matters. Oslo Pride may not be happening today, but they will march again because hate will not win.

Today, on #ArmedForcesDay we thank our Armed Forces for keeping us safe and for their service on the front line.

A Labour government would make sure our veterans get a better deal with fair access to the housing and the services they deserve.

This has only been possible due to the incredible support of so many campaigners from Wakefield and beyond, an incredible campaign team, the brilliant council staff and police, and, most importantly, the support of you, the people of Wakefield.

🧵I just want to say thank you.

Thank you for putting your trust in me to be your Member of Parliament.

This has been a historic result for Wakefield and for Labour, with a swing not seen for Labour since we were last in Government.

"The Tory Party is absolutely imploding, they know they are out of ideas and out of touch"

Labour leader Keir Starmer says if the Conservative Party "had any decency they they would get out of the way for the next Labour government"

Today's devastating Supreme Court decision is a massive setback for women's rights in the United States of America.

The right of women to make their own decisions about their own bodies is a fundamental human right.

Huge congratulations @simonlightwood on your election victory! Looking forward to welcoming you in Parliament! ⁦Thank you to all those in ⁦@bgblabour⁩ who went to #Wakefield to support the campaign. ⁦@UKLabour⁩ 🌹

Out on the #labourdoorstep campaigning for @simonlightwood - he’ll be a brilliant champion for Wakefield. Polls are open til 10pm - don’t forget to vote @UKLabour #WinningWakefield

Shout out to @uklabour party staffers and volunteers in Wakefield today - many have worked day and night for weeks away from their families, got up at 4am today and working the count til late into the night - absolute heroes

My statement on the threat of famine in the Horn of Africa.

My statement on the devastating floods in Sylhet.

My thoughts go out to the people of Afghanistan following the catastrophic earthquake. My deepest sympathies with all those who have lost loved ones.

It is great to see that a number of community groups have benefited from £979,848 of National Lottery funding in my constituency. These groups are inspirational in the great work and support they provide to local people through what have been some extremely challenging times.

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.

If you live in Wakefield, today is your chance to send a message to the Tories the can’t ignore:

Vote for @SimonLightwood.

Vote for a fresh start.


Emotional to be at the unveiling of the Windrush memorial at Waterloo station. Thinking of my father who arrived here in 1956 and all who came to this country to help rebuild it after WW2. I shall bring my children to see the statue and one day I hope my grandkids #WindrushDay

The cost of living crisis is being made worse by ⁦@BorisJohnson⁩ ‘s poor trade deal with the EU new research from ⁦@resfoundation⁩ finds today with workers on av £470 a year worse off & long term damage to Britain’s openness and competitiveness

📣 On Wednesday, as part of our ‘Russia: effective economic sanctions’ inquiry, we’ll hear from the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation @hmtreasury officials:

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.

It is refugee week this week and the theme is healing. @UpRising_UK alumna @zarlashth and her organisation @amnahealing have launched to lift refugee voices. Follow their stories and listen to understand #refugeeweek2022

On this Home Secretary’s watch overall crime is up 18%, prosecutions are down 18%.

The first Home Secretary for 25yrs to preside over such a big increase in crime & a big drop in charge rates at same time.

The weakest Government performance on crime for a quarter of a century.

I’m delighted to have been unanimously re-selected by all 9 branches of Bethnal Green & Bow Constituency Labour Party, and their affiliates to stand again in the next #GeneralElection. Thank you @bgblabour for your support! Now lets work to get @UKLabour into government.🌹

The party *in power* is wrongly accusing a party *not in power* of failing to express an opinion about rail strikes while doing literally nothing to avert rail strikes.

Burglaries not solved

Frauds not investigated

Rapes not prosecuted

After 12 yrs of Tory Govt the charge rate on crime has sunk to a record low.

This Government’s record on crime is a disgrace. Crime up. More criminals let off & more victims let down

Delighted to have received the support from @THLP_BG @StPeters_Labour #Whitechapel wards at branch meetings today. Thank you all for supporting me to continue as the Labour candidate for Bethnal Green & Bow at the next general election!

6,000 more GPs
40 new hospitals
50,000 more nurses

Each promise made to the British people broken.

Patients can’t wait any longer.

Their time is up.

I was proud to march alongside thousands of incredible activists from all over the country, numerous industries and trade unions to demand action on the cost of living scandal.

#DemandBetter 🪧

Britain is facing the biggest rail strike in a generation but @GrantShapps hasn’t spent a single second in talks to avert it since March.

Time is running out. The Tories must get round the table and sort this out.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads and carers! Thank you for everything you do.

Today we also think of those fathers no longer with us. #HappyFathersDay

Another morning, another horrid queue at airport security! This time at Stanstead. Well done @BorisJohnson. Top marks @pritipatel Welcome to #BacklogBritain
