After promising to help pensioners with the cost of living, the Conservatives broke the Triple Lock. 

And now as the cost of living rises even more, the State Pension has been slashed in real-terms. 

Britain's retirees deserve so much better.

The Tories are failing our children: narrowing the curriculum & pushing experienced teachers out of our schools.

We need an Equal Access Guarantee so girls can play & enjoy all sports.

We must secure the Lionesses' legacy.

Pricey school uniforms put pressure on already stretched family budgets. That’s why schemes like the @HivePortsmouth ShareStore are so important👇🏻

This is deeply irresponsible.

Families are seeing bills pile up and the Tory response, after 12 years of economic mismanagement, is to create more uncertainty.

Labour would cut energy bills right now by removing the tax breaks for oil and gas producers.

You don’t need us to tell you that your money doesn’t go as far these days.

But just how much are the Conservatives costing you?

I’m proud of Labour and the trade union movement’s record on championing LGBT equality. But there is a long way to go on education, access to services, hate crime and mental wellbeing. Pleasure to join @neunion @southeastneu, teachers and school support staff at @pridebrighton 🏳️‍🌈

Our football club’s success is our city’s success. I will always do what I can to help @Pompey fulfil its ambitions and to bring benefits to fans and to #Portsmouth👇🏻

More than one million people have had to wait over a month to see a GP.

This leads to higher A&E admissions at greater cost, greater inconvenience to patients and greater pressures on over-stretched emergency departments.

We need more GPs 👇🏻

It was useful to meet on-site with PFC representatives and local landowners to look at options for a pedestrian walkway from Fratton station to Fratton Park. I’ll continue to bring decision-makers together to ensure @Pompey’s plans become a reality👇🏻

MP for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan submits bit to transform Portsmouth City Centre

@portsmouthtoday #portsmouth #levellingup
http://ow.ly/xbpo50Kcnzs

Labour would ensure families eligible for free school meals are supported, empowering parents to choose the food and supplies needed to help them battle rising price. My comment in The @Daily_Express👇🏻

Helpful to catch up with senior local police about issues constituents have raised me, the need for an increased police presence in the city centre, tackling ASB at the Hotwalls and the Camber and my concerns over rising crime. We need a fairer funding deal for our local force

Despite her attempt to trash the Tory record of the last 12 years, #LizTruss has backed every decision along the way. Maybe that’s what she’s got to hide? 🧐
http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/politics/prime-minister-candidate-liz-truss-snubs-journlist-questions-on-conservative-visit-to-portsmouth-3795610

Busy afternoon at the @PHDockyard meeting veterans on board HMS Victory then a catch up to welcome the new @HMNBPortsmouth commander @CdreJohnVoyce discussing today’s challenges and future opportunities. Proud Portsmouth is the heart and home of the Royal Navy

PM candidate @trussliz visited #Portsmouth today. Despite being given exclusive access at the event, she and her team snubbed any chance for questions from our reporter. The only quote she gave us directly was: “The local press will have their pound of flesh.” Clearly not…?

The Tories are failing families and denying our kids opportunities that help them thrive.

While Tory leadership candidates compete to damage our country, Labour would be putting money in families’ pockets — tackling the cost of living crisis right now.

Tory PM hopeful #LizTruss’ event in Southsea is just starting, breaking the Ministerial Code for not telling the constituency MP she was in town. Not a good start for #Liz4Leader eh? We’re live tweeting during the Portsmouth event

As Liz Truss visits #Portsmouth today and this dreary side-show rattles on, the real problems facing our city and our country are being ignored by the Conservatives. 1/4

The real cost of Ministers’ inaction is measured in opportunities for our children. The Conservatives won’t step up and secure our children’s futures, the next Labour government will👇🏻
http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1650919/child-poverty-food-cost-of-living-crisis-free-school-meals-students-news-latest

Liz Truss would cost the taxpayer billions in unfunded promises, whilst cutting pay for working people.

A Labour government would immediately prioritise boosting economic growth and fixing the Tory cost of living crisis.

#BattleForNo10

It’s appalling that water companies’ performance on sewage pollution has hit a new low. Water quality won’t improve until Government gets a grip on their performance. My latest @portsmouthnews Off the Fence article 👇🏻

With the high price of school uniforms pushing many families into difficulty, organisations like @HivePortsmouth are stepping up to help #Portsmouth people. If you can support or donate items👇🏻
http://www.stephenmorgan.org.uk/city-mp-backs-school-uniform-sharestore-and-offers-school-call-to-help-parents

No parent wants to see their child excluded from school but once again the Conservatives have treated our children and their future opportunities as an afterthought. My comment in @thetimes 👇🏻
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/schools-sent-13-000-pupils-home-for-covid-breaches-vfrmtxhq7

Helpful to catch up with Dom and the @portsmouthsu team about the experience of student housing in our city, their recent survey and the impact of the cost of living crisis on young people and students. I’ll be taking views and their important research back to Parliament

Interest rates up 0.5%, inflation to hit 13%, and forecasts of a recession.

The Conservatives have lost control of Britain’s economy.

Labour would help households now scrapping tax breaks for oil and gas giants and insulating millions of homes.

Portsmouth is a proud city of sanctuary for those in need. The brilliant @FwbPortsmouth provides invaluable support for asylum seekers, refugees and vulnerable migrants within our community. Was a pleasure to meet constituents who I’ve helped on a visit to the charity

I want our city centre to be a place to be proud of once again. That’s why to boost the local economy and put the heart back into #Portsmouth’s city centre Government must back our levelling up bid👇🏻
http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/people/bid-to-breathe-new-life-into-heart-of-portsmouth-city-centre-submitted-to-government-3792956

BT gave its CEO a 32% pay rise. Its workers are facing a cost-of-living crisis. Yet the CEO is flat refusing to meet to discuss pay. BT must get around the table with @CWUnews to agree a fair pay deal, and Tory Ministers should step in if he won’t

We are excited to announce that we will be opening up the port for a community open day on Saturday 15 October, as part of @MaritimeUK week! ⚓️

The Conservatives’ miserable failure to help children recover from the pandemic threatens to cast a long shadow over children’s opportunities and widen the already gaping attainment gap. My comment in @DailyMirror👇🏻
http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/1-5-level-pupils-missed-27645602

Our city centre has been forgotten and ignored for too long and over time this has taken its toll. That’s why I’ve been working with others and am backing a £40m bid to put the heart back into #Portsmouth and boost our economy👇🏻
http://www.stephenmorgan.org.uk/portsmouth-mp-backed-bid-to-put-the-heart-back-into-city-centre-submitted-to-government

Labour will put bobbies back on the beat and create new crime prevention teams bringing police, community support and youth workers together to tackle the causes of ASB. Good to be out with @PompeyLabour’s St Jude team campaigning on this today👇🏻
http://www.stephenmorgan.org.uk/give-us-our-bobbies-back

In just 15 months, BT has made £1.7bn profit. Less than 5% went to frontline workers’ pay. Tory Ministers promised a high wage economy. I've told the Secretary of State it's time she did her job and got BT around the negotiating table with @CWUnews👇🏻

We all celebrated the Lionesses' stunning victory, now we must secure their legacy.

The Tories are failing to seize this moment to ensure girls can play football at school.

I've written to the Education Sec demanding an 'Equal Access Guarantee' for school sport 👇🏼

Fantastic visit to Fratton Park to catch up on stadium developments and other issues ahead of @Pompey’s first home league game on Saturday. Impressive improvements to disability access and facilities, with some exciting new bars and concession stands! #PUP

Some patients are waiting 2 years for NHS treatment, after the Conservatives said no-one would.

Patients are paying the price for their broken promise.

Labour will provide the NHS with the staff, technology, and modern equipment it needs.

From the shore to the lifeboat, there are lots of ways you can volunteer at the @RNLI. Was a pleasure to be part of training and meet some of the brilliant @RNLI_Portsmouth volunteers at one of country’s busiest lifeboat stations 🌊

The Conservatives are failing our children with staff numbers falling, school buildings in a state of disrepair and fewer trips, clubs and enriching activities👇🏻

Shadow @UKLabour schools minister @StephenMorganMP says schools are doing "more with less" as IFS stats show a 15-year squeeze on budgets.
"Conservative leadership contenders would rather bluster about the return of grammars than pledge any real action"
https://schoolsweek.co.uk/school-funding-budgets-costs-2023-2024-election/

The @NCS gives young people the chance to meet new friends, take on new challenges and make a positive impact in the community. Was a pleasure to be on the Dragons Den panel today as our city’s young people prepare their social action projects with @PompeyITC

The Conservatives are failing our children with staff numbers falling, school buildings in a state of disrepair and fewer trips, clubs and enriching activities. My reaction in @guardian to @TheIFS’ latest research👇🏻

We must ensure our @Lionesses historic victory creates a lasting legacy to finally give women’s football the support and recognition it deserves #Lionesses👇🏻
http://www.stephenmorgan.org.uk/labour-urges-government-not-to-miss-open-goal-on-womens-and-girls-football-as-nation-celebrates-lionesses-stunning-success

Our @Lionesses have done England proud and inspired a generation of women and girls across Portsmouth and the nation. This must be the sliding doors moment for the women’s game. We cannot let this opportunity slip through our fingers #Lionesses👇🏻

Everyone is feeling the hit from higher taxes and rising energy, food and fuel prices. The Library of Things is a great community-led project which will help people borrow equipment rather than worrying about the cost of purchasing or maintaining them👇🏻
