I hear constituents when they call on the council and police to use all the powers available to them to tackle antisocial behaviour in our communities. I will continue lobbying for this. Grateful for the police’s action here👇🏻

We said their #SchoolsBill was about powers for their ministers, not ambition for our young people. And now it isn’t even about the powers. The Conservatives are failing our children👇🏻

A pleasure to visit @westhorndonprim in Essex today to meet pupils and staff in their vibrant classrooms. Their staff continue to innovate and deliver the very best for children who are a credit to their school

Oh dear.
 
The Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi, has ripped up his own plans and is back to the drawing board with his very first piece of primary legislation.
 
Once again, Tory chaos is failing our children.
 
A thread ... 🧵

The Covid-19 pandemic has had devastating impacts for children

Now the data shows that the government’s failure to deliver an ambitious recovery plan for our children is holding them back

We need urgent action to get support to all children who need it https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/number-young-kids-struggling-speech-27350605

Our club’s success is our city’s success. That’s why I’m bringing decision-makers together to turn the idea of improving connectivity between Fratton station and Fratton Park into a reality. Successful first forum today I chaired with @Pompey @networkrail @portsmouthtoday

Our armed forces, veterans and their families deserve the very best. Sadly the council let them down on #ArmedForcesDay👇

On #IPWeek2022 we are reminded of the thousands of cases of avoidable injuries that happen every year. We all have a duty to look out for one another

Under the Tories community sentences are falling. Labour will restore security in your communities and put victims at the heart of how offenders repay society👇🏻

After this Tory government lost two by-elections in one day, it’s clear working people have sent Ministers a message. No wonder the PM has jetted off overseas and left his deputy to carry the can. He knows the game’s up. He just can’t face it #PMQs

This Tory government has no plan to achieve its climate targets.

A Labour government would end the dither and delay and act now, with a green energy sprint and a home energy efficiency plan to cut bills and deliver energy sovereignty. 👇

Conservatives are letting criminals off and letting victims down. Labour will put communities and victims at the heart of how offenders repay society👇🏻

Portsmouth people are struggling with waits for passports and driving licences, long queues at airports and waiting lists for healthcare and court dates. Ministers need to get on with their jobs and fix #BacklogBritain👇🏻

Some of Portsmouth Labour’s past and present were in Westminster today to pay tribute to the life of Lord Frank Judd of Portsea. A local Labour legend who served in both the Wilson and Callaghan government’s and who was always a proud champion of our great city.

Privilege to attend the service of thanksgiving for the life of Lord Frank Judd of Portsea. Frank was a Labour hero and a Portsmouth great. A fitting tribute to him and his public service today

On this government’s watch mental health waiting times for children have exploded, whilst availability of treatment has plummeted. That’s why Labour would deliver access to a mental health professional for children in every school 👇🏻

A man of warmth, generosity and genuine humanity, Lord Frank Judd of Portsea was a Labour hero and a Portsmouth great. Today in Westminster we will be remembering his public service to the country👇🏻

Huge waits for passports and driving licences, long queues at airports and massive waiting lists for healthcare and court dates.

Sign our petition if you’ve had enough of Boris Johnson’s backlog Britain. 📝

With #NorthernIrelandProtocolBill, Mr Johnson is taking a wrecking ball to the deal he negotiated, signed and campaigned on. Once again, the PM is damaging Britain’s hard-won reputation as a dependable country that plays by the rules. Tonight I voted against the Bill

The cost of living crisis is putting enormous pressure on many people’s ability to afford a healthy diet. That's why I'm encouraging all those who are able to get involved in the work @TrussellTrust and @FareShareUK are doing to tackle this👇🏻

Busy Pint with your MP talking with local people about issues of the day including cladding, struggling high streets, air quality and many other issues I be taking back to Parliament. Thank you to the team at the @Oldcustomshouse @GunwharfQuays for hosting us

Labour offers a proper plan for change, to get Britain’s economy growing again so businesses and families can reap the rewards.

Our victory in Wakefield shows there's renewed optimism and hope.

Labour is back on the path to government👇🏼

Stephen Morgan MP has paid tribute to the contribution of local refugees following a meeting at Saint Simons Church today with Ukrainians he helped to secure visas for and flea the war in their home country.

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.

Happy #ArmedForcesDay to all serving personnel, veterans and their families here in Portsmouth!👇

From deployments abroad to keep us safe to deployments at home during pandemic, our Armed Forces are essential to national defence, as well as our national resilience. #Portsmouth is proudly the heart and home to the @RoyalNavy and the base for many important military charities

🇬🇧 Today is Armed Forces Day 🇬🇧
We want to thank our amazing service people, and the families and loved ones who support them, promoting our nation's interests globally.
What you do is exceptional. Thank you.
#SaluteOurForces #AFD22 @VAdmAndrewBurns

Lots of local school children came together for @ArmedForcesDay in @phdockyard to compete in a Junior Field Gun Team competition. Pleasure to give out medals to all those taking part #ArmedForcesDay

We’re here in Plymouth today celebrating #ArmedForcesDay.

We salute all of those still serving, our veterans and their families for their hard work and sacrifice in ensuring the security of our nation.

Thankyou

Our city is deeply proud of our service men and service women, veterans and their families in #Portsmouth. On @ArmedForcesDay I thank them for their incredible service #ArmedForcesDay

Practice closures, record numbers of people waiting for care and waiting longer than ever before. As I said in Parliament this week, #Portsmouth has become a new healthcare hell for patients. This is the record of this Tory government👇🏻

I was delighted to welcome new members of our community to Portsmouth this #RefugeeWeek2022, and play a part in securing their safe arrival👇🏻
http://www.stephenmorgan.org.uk/refugee-week-portsmouth-mp-pays-tribute-to-the-contribution-of-local-refugees-after-securing-their-safe-passage

#RefugeeWeek2022 is a celebration of the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. Was a pleasure to meet refugees settling in our city today and local families hosting Ukrainians I’ve helped bring to the UK

The Education Secretary is treating children’s learning as a political battlefield.

No-one wants strikes and no-one wants more disruption to our children’s education.

A short thread 🧵

In 2022, in one of the richest countries on the planet, no one should be forced to do DIY dentistry. Government inaction is creating a dental desert👇🏻

The message the country heard from #Wakefield is clear: Labour is winning the trust of the British people and firmly on the path to power. The Tories can’t ignore last night’s results. The Prime Minister has to go.

When parents come together to form a PTA it has a powerful effect on our schools. Find out what it means to be part of a PTA, how it benefits the children at the school and how you can set one up #NationalPTAWeek #PTAPower👇🏻
