Labour MP for Birmingham Selly Oak | Standing up for Billesley, Bournville, Brandwood and Selly Oak |
Thanks @steve_mccabe for fantastic chairing. Great to be back in the Committee rooms of @HouseofCommons. #mentalhealth #Workforce #research #APPG
🔥A Tory rebel MP says: "Boris treats the party likes he treats his women. He'll never leave us. But he'll lie to us and cheat on us until we eventually have to boot him out".
Starting day 3 of our young activists delegation with a trip to the Al-Amari refugee camp in the West Bank, followed by a productive meeting with @ZimamPS - a grassroots Palestinian youth movement seeking to build mutual trust and foster peace for young people in the region.
This week we’re in Israel and the Palestinian Territories on a delegation with Young Labour activists, jointly organised with @WeBelieveIsrael.
We started our week by visiting the Old City of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites.
🧵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.
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.
Police community support officers were patrolling Cotteridge park today and joined in with #2022greatgettogether and met up with @steve_mccabe @BournvilleWMP

Congratulations to @simonlightwood!
The new Labour MP for Wakefield. 🌹
The American Supreme court decision on a woman’s right to abortion is one of the worst assaults on individual rights we have seen in the western world for many a year. Our liberal societies which we have taken for granted are now under real threat
Thank you to the 26 MPs & Lords drawn from 5 parties across Parliament who wrote this week to @trussliz calling for “urgent, meaningful support to peacebuilding projects” & UK leadership in “establishing an International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace”
@steve_mccabe Thank you for highlighting this important issue. This is happening next door to me, and I already live in a deprived area. These rogue landlords need to be stopped!
Time to deal with scandal https://stevemccabe.org/2022/06/24/time-to-deal-with-scandal/
On Monday @SwanshurstNews will be holding their 13th Veterans’ Day in combination with @steve_mccabe MP. It is going to be a brilliant occasion. Not too late to join us! @ArmedForcesDay
Wishing a great candidate @simonlightwood all the best
Still one of the greatest attack ads ever, sadly Callaghan wouldn't use it until it was too late - but today seems a good moment to give it a reup - for those who *really* remember the 70s.
Thank you for committing to champion the views of care experienced young people @steve_mccabe MP #ItsOurCare
Tomorrow is our chance for a fresh start. Let's take it.
@GrantSchapps said that the government has given £16bn to rail during the pandemic. Let's be clear, that's taxpayers' money to enable private operators pay £500m in dividends while @RMTunion members kept trains running.
I’m proud to announce I have been shortlisted for an NHS Parliamentary Award! Can’t wait to attend the award ceremony in 6th July! Thank you Elaine Kirwan, Anna Sykes and MP SteveMcCabe #thankyou #nhs
The change government began bringing Israel back to its citizens and different parts of our society together. I am proud that Labor was part of its creation and its most stable faction. I thank our partners, and am sure we will continue to lead Israel back to safety.
And we're off!

'It is obvious that we need to sketch out much more vision'
Labour MP Steve McCabe says the Party are 'at a critical phase' moving forward with Sir Keir Starmer.

Tory government's ongoing campaign to criminalise asylum seekers continues with a plan require them to wear electronic tags. This came to mind:
Beautiful day in sunny Wakefield campaigning for @simonlightwood and @UKLabour ☀️🌹🇬🇧
Gosh! Isn’t it exciting news. I imagine some of my constituents can hardly contain themselves
@IanCCruise1972 @LizClements @WMCycleHire @birmingham_live @andy4wm You are not alone. Might make a welcome sign saying ‘we don’t care what you think Heather, please don’t bother coming and patronising us, we don’t need you’.
Nicola Sturgeon wants to focus on division. It’s an attempt to distract from her failures.
The next electoral contest in Scotland will be a general election, not a referendum.
Our chance to bring our country together, boot out Boris and build the future, together.
Given what’s happening in Iran I find it incomprehensible that 3 of the people scheduled to be put on tonight’s flight to Rwanda can be Iranians. Surely their circumstances deserve closer scrutiny and consideration
We are beyond excited to be part of Birmingham Health Innovation Campus! The phase 1 building will offer 133,000sq ft of premium lab and incubation space for #LifeSciences enterprises, as well as opportunities to collaborate with clinical-academic experts from across @BHPComms 👇 https://twitter.com/BW_SciTech/status/1536376512764600320
The life sciences sector in the West Midlands is growing at pace and scale and the demand for high quality, purpose-built lab and office space for the sector is unwavering.

Perhaps Chancellor should have taken steps in advance to ensure it would be passed & should keep better track of the price of a barrel of oil.
People are feeling the pinch of international price rises, so it’s right that we make sure drivers are getting a fair deal on fuel⛽
Our 5p fuel duty cut must be passed on to drivers, and this Government is asking the @CMAgovUK to conduct an urgent review 🔍 of the fuel market.
What a pleasure it was to welcome @CoventryRugby and @Charter_SB to witness our friend @steve_mccabe open our new library today. We felt immensely proud to host this community event and pay thanks to Charter Savings Bank for their donation and to Steve for his time!
Yes - a right mess. Lies, favours for friends, laziness, incompetence. why should anyone believe him?
"Why should people believe you when you say you can deliver, when 40% of your MPs don't think you can?" asks @ChrisMasonBBC
PM Boris Johnson says the answer is simple, "look at what we've already delivered"
Boris Johnson today on building 300,000 homes a year: 'I can’t give you a cast-iron guarantee we are going to get to a number in a particular year.'
Downing Street on May 11: 'Our target to deliver 300,000-a-year is central to our levelling up mission.'
Johnson today: "I want to talk about the single biggest chunk of household expenditure and that’s the cost of housing."
Johnson to Tory MPs on Monday: "There is one chunk of household income that is the biggest of all and that is tax."
Different day, different tune, same guy.
When is a manifest pledge not a pledge? When Boris Johnson promises it
Prime minister says he cannot give a "cast-iron guarantee" 300,000 target will be hit. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/boris-johnson-admits-manifesto-pledge-to-build-homes-could-be-missed_uk_62a1f0abe4b0c770989cde58?d_id=3848811&ncid_tag=tweetlnkukhpmg00000008&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter&utm_campaign=uk_politics
i thought it was critical sometime ago. This kind of thing simply undermines confidence in the whole area. i’d like to see some leadership & some urgency
The mayor of the West Mids says it's now critical repairs on the trams are completed to get a full service back along Broad Street. @andy4wm has thanked people for their patience. Today trams are back between Wolverhampton St Georges and Bull Street in Birmingham #HeartNews
Bob Kerslake, on why extending right to buy to housing associations, would be, in @BorisJohnson's own (2015) words, "the height of insanity" 👇

know your place!
Just about sums up how dismal this government is that it’s ‘social mobility tsar’ essentially sees her job as telling the poor to know their place. What a rotten, stinking outfit they are.
Hi @steve_mccabe. We would love a retweet if possible please - we are keen to attract the best people to train to teach here in Birmingham and the West Midlands. Thank you!
“The British government has shown a consistent reluctance to stand up to Iranian #humanrights abusers in recent years,” @steve_mccabe, a member of the #LaborParty and chair of #LFI group said in an interview with #KayhanLife.

Great to support @BSHeartFailure & @Novartis at today's parliamentary drop-in event, where we spoke to MPs about the urgent action needed to address the challenges facing people with heart failure.

Thank you to @StephenFarryMP for supporting calls for a ban on hunting in Northern Ireland and to @steve_mccabe and @MargaretFerrier for their support at our parliament event yesterday.
#PMQs predictable bluster from Johnson. Alice In Wonderland performance - economy booming, no passport problems, NHS in good shape & 40 new hospitals. It’s gone beyond casual lying to total self delusion. How anyone can back him is beyond me
Oh that’s ok then!
West Midlands Mayor @andy4wm tells @bbcwm that he would have voted for the Prime Minister last night despite being 'incredibly disappointed, let down and frankly disbelieving about what’s happened.' 1.
Convincing that they’ll be looking for a new leader sooner rather than later
Mr Johnson describes the result as “convincing”.
Think Home Affairs Select Committee looking at it. I’ve put down some parliamentary questions as have many other MPs of different parties but answers are poor. My own views is we know what’s wrong. Problem is this government isn’t motivated to put it right
@steve_mccabe It certainly is. Is there any way you can highlight what a shambles it is? Is there a scrutiny committee or a way to ask questions? It’s not only unproductive of your time but also causing anxiety to hosts and trauma to refugees
Think that’s what you call a Pyrrhic victory Mr Johnson
Agree system is a shambles. If people can secure results by going to Sheffield and my staff are using up valuable hours sometimes unproductively then it suggests no proper, accountable administrative procedures. This is Priti Patel’s Home Office
@steve_mccabe I’m sure they do Steve, & I’ve had good feedback about how you have been helping hosts in your constituency. But my point is if visas can be unlocked by a host going to Sheffield but your staff are getting nowhere after hours in a queue every week, then the system is broken.
Worth pointing out that staff are queuing for hours trying to speak to those at emergency House of Commons centre established to deal with this. I have a staff member who regularly spends 5-8 hours per week in the queue. Even LibDem MPs have staff queuing
It’s absolutely bonkers that host families who are already giving up hours of their time supporting strangers are having to travel miles to unlock glitches with visas when their MPs who have direct access to the Home Office seem unable to do the same. 🤷♀️
NEW: A third of any revenue from the Chancellor's windfall tax u-turn could go straight back to oil and gas producers in a tax giveaway.
This is a chaotic, incoherent Tory package that:
⁉️ Undermines the windfall tax
⁉️ Incentivises investment in fossil fuels over renewables
The concern for Boris Johnson if he survives the vote will be that his government will enter a new phase of drifting hopelessly without purpose or direction, entirely at the whim of whichever bit of the parliamentary party shouts loudest, retreating at the slightest pressure.
