Boris Johnson's #BacklogBritain cannot be blamed on Covid, or hard working public sector staff.

It is a result of:

A.) A decade of Tory under-investment, meaning our economy & public services lacked resilience going into pandemic.

B.) Poor planning for end of lockdown surge.

Labour has tonight told the Tories to get a grip on Boris Johnson's #BacklogBritain.

Even before the pandemic NHS waiting lists and the court backlogs had reached record highs - due to low growth & under-investment.

Now patients can't get operations & victims can't get justice.

As a patriot, I am proud that people and Govts around the world see Britain as a law-abiding country.

But last night we had to sit & listen to Ministers defend the NI Protocol Bill which destroys an international treaty that the PM described as “an excellent deal” 2 yrs ago.

Additional grant funding has been made available for food banks, charities and community groups that help to tackle food poverty in Neath Port Talbot.

After re-taking Wakefield last week, Labour is a Government in waiting.

Meanwhile this Tory Government is out of touch and out of ideas.

Here is my summary of Labour's plan for jobs and growth:

Another day, and yet another example of the utterly shambolic state of Priti Patel’s performance as Home Secretary. British taxpayers are paying through the nose for this breathtaking incompetence. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/home-secretary-priti-patel-breaks-27328651

Whilst Boris Johnson picks fights & feeds off division the British people are crying out for a Labour government that will unite the country around a project for national renewal. Keir’s message this morning on possible snap GE is clear: bring it on👍 👍 https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jun/26/labour-has-now-claimed-the-centre-ground-and-has-shown-it-can-win

Small & Medium Sized Enterprises are the backbone of British economy, driving innovation & creating jobs.

But they are currently being suffocated by a mountain of red tape, caused by this Tory Govt's botched Brexit deal.

I asked @Jacob_Rees_Mogg how Govt are helping SMEs:

Brilliant news from the Port Talbot by-election this morning.

Llongyfarchiadau to the excellent @CllrSaif and @FreeguardSharon, our newest Welsh Labour councillors! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🌹

This high tax, low growth government has failed to get inflation & cost of living under control, meaning workers are seeing wages stagnate & household budgets squeezed.

Govt must provide a fair deal for workers and a package of policies to promote economic growth.

Amazing response today on the doorstep, thank you for putting posters in the windows supporting both myself and @FreeguardSharon your two @WelshLabour candidates for the Port Talbot Ward election 23rd June 22. #localelections2022 #porttalbot #LabourParty

Best wishes to my friends and @WelshLabour colleagues for the election in Port Talbot ward tomorrow. Both have been committed councillors over the last 5 yrs always working for their residents & seeking to improve their communities. @CllrSaif @FreeguardSharon

Yet another damning report on the deeply damaging impact of Boris Johnson’s botched Brexit. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/workers-real-pay-cut-470-27293183

My office has been inundated by people with a similar story to Medwen - waiting more than 10 weeks for a Passport; causing missed holidays and a significant loss of hard-earned money.

Severe backlogs are at the heart of this crisis at the Passport Office.

#BacklogBritain

Tory Govt’s failure to plan means our already underfunded public services are in crisis mode.

Everywhere you look our country is bogged down in delays & chaos.

Rwanda plan isn't deterring migrants and is eye-wateringly expensive.

Instead Labour would:

🌍 Partner with countries close to war zones to process apps outside UK.

🇬🇧 Negotiate security partnerships & returns agreements.

⬆️ Return to pre-Patel speed for asylum processing.

📚Is #Brexit anything more than a historical footnote?

The Rwanda policy is unworkable, and the Rwanda threat is clearly not deterring people from crossing the channel - 700 this week.

It is also incredibly expensive for the tax player.

Here's Labour's approach:

NEW: Today, Labour launches a new start-up review to help make Britain the best place to start and grow a business.

As a pro-worker, pro-business party, we will match the ambition of our entrepreneurs - and get our economy firing on all cylinders.

Home Sec knows her policy is unworkable, unethical & cd make trafficking worse.

Yet she chartered a plane she never expected to fly & wrote Rwanda a £120m cheque because she just wants a row & someone else to blame.

Its Government by gimmick. Our country is better than this

The Rwanda policy is unworkable, and the Rwanda threat is clearly not deterring people from crossing the channel - 700 this week.

It is also incredibly expensive for the tax player.

Here's Labour's approach:

"Labour will stop this policy. We will campaign to stop it now"

Shadow immigration minister Stephen Kinnock says Rwanda asylum plan is "unworkable, it is profoundly wrong and it is extortionately expensive"
https://bbc.in/3xRbvRs

.@YvetteCooperMP on Rwanda: “There is no point in the Government blaming anyone else but themselves. They have pushed ahead with a policy they knew was unworkable, unethical, and incredibly expensive because they just wanted a row and someone else to blame.”

Huge waits for passports and driving licences.

Huge queues at airports.

Huge waiting lists for healthcare and court dates.

From court cases, to hospital waiting lists, to passports - everywhere you look our country is bogged down in delays and chaos.

The year is 2022, and this is Boris Johnson's #BacklogBritain.

People are worried about the future and lack the confidence to spend.

We need more than just sticking plasters - but the Tories are refusing to learn lessons or plan ahead after 12 years of demolishing our economy.

That's why Labour will build a stronger, more secure economy.
