Today marks 50 years since the first UK Pride. Members of the LGBT+ community who marched through London faced hostility and backlash.

But they persevered and today we celebrate and remember the groundbreaking work of LGBT+ activists over the past 50 years. 🏳️‍🌈

I've done more research showing that Community Payback is broken: it's time for the Conservatives to back Labour’s plan for Community and Victim Payback Boards so we can restore trust in community sentences.

Today would have been my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary, but yesterday we laid my dad to rest after he passed away just a few days earlier. We are gathered around mum today to support her in remembering so many happy times in their long and loving marriage ❤️

My heart is broken as we say goodbye to my dad today. A wonderful husband, dad and grandad, he worked as a printer, sang in a band, played professional football and was a lifelong trade unionist who taught me never to be a bystander against injustice. I love you forever Dad x

While Conservative Ministers hound civil servants back to the office, my research shows that they’re letting thousands of offenders "work from home". Yet again they're letting criminals off and letting victims down.

Huge congratulations to @SimonLightwood - Labour’s new MP for Wakefield!

A historic victory — this city deserved a fresh start, and you delivered it.

Wakefield is the birthplace of the next Labour government.

Huge congratulations to @simonlightwood on a storming win for Labour in Wakefield - truth and decency in politics matters #JohnsonOut

This Conservative Government’s Bill of Rights con is an attack on women.

It will make it harder for victims of rape to get justice.

But it comes as no surprise from a Govt that has effectively decriminalised rape.

What a relief this abusive cult has been closed down after I raised serious allegations of abuse and exploitation - the organisation’s leaders must never be allowed to target young people again

Over 35,000 Brits waiting over 10 wks for a passport, threatening hard earned holidays, family & work trips. Today Labour called on Minister to apologise to everyone they’ve let down but Tory MPs voted to defend him.

My research shows failing Conservative ministers left hard-pressed taxpayers to foot £14m hike in prison energy bills even before this year’s price rises hit - not enough focus on insulation, cutting waste or using cheaper solar power

Five years on from the Grenfell tower fire we remember the 72 people killed.

The Grenfell community are courageous in their pursuit of justice and change. We stand with them.

To honour the memories of those lost we must prevent such a tragedy happening again.

More world-beating results from Boris Johnson's Conservatives.

Hounding civil servants back into the office while letting criminals work from home: my research shows yet again how the Conservatives are letting criminals off and letting victims down. Labour's Community and Victim Payback Boards would put this right.

Labour MPs voted today to adopt the recommendations of the Committee on Standards in Public Life.

We were joined by other parties in our efforts to clean up politics.

But not one single Conservative MP voted in favour. A total abdication of leadership under Boris Johnson.

Worse percentage-wise than Thatcher in 1990.

Worse percentage-wise than May in 2018.

Worse percentage-wise than Major in 1995.

Boris Johnson is a dead man walking. He’s got to go.

“Jacob Rees-Mogg, who led calls for the Tory confidence vote, said losing the support of a third of her MPs was a "terrible result for the Prime Minister" & called on her to resign”

A reminder to Jacob Rees-Mogg about the resignation threshold he set for Theresa May in Dec 2018.

Labour will tomorrow force a vote in Parliament to clean up politics.

Boris Johnson has demeaned his office and downgraded standards.

We are urging MPs of all parties to back a package of reforms to strengthen standards in public life.

It’s time to stop the rot.

Still smiling after a wonderful jubilee street party with our lovely neighbours yesterday afternoon - what a great weekend it’s been for bringing our country together 🇬🇧

As the Tories trash British values and British institutions. Labour’s the party of patriotism now. Fantastic piece by @LucyMPowell

A privilege to be at #PlatinumPartyAtThePalace this evening.

Such brilliant performances, great atmosphere, and a wonderful celebration of Her Majesty The Queen.

Proud to be British!

The Queen’s sense of duty and commitment to Her people have made our country a better place.

This weekend, on the #PlatinumJubilee, we celebrate Her Majesty.

Burglary victims forced to wait up to two years for justice - and that’s the lucky few who ever get to trial in the first place as the Conservatives go soft on crime

This #PlatinumJubilee weekend will be a celebration of the Queen’s 70 years - and a chance for the country to let its hair down after a difficult few years.

Unacceptable that this failing Conservative Government does nothing as rape victims ‘treated like suspects’ after being attacked #SoftOnCrime #HardOnVictims

"In the old days 'taking personal responsibility' was almost a synonym for 'I am about to resign'. Well, I don't know what it means now."

Andrew Marr's devastating takedown of Boris Johnson, in response to the Sue Gray report's "gruesome detail".

@AndrewMarr9

The Labour Party called for a windfall tax for five months before the government finally admitted they were wrong.

In the meantime, every day of @BorisJohnson's dithering and delay added £53m to household bills.

First the Tories said they couldn’t introduce a windfall tax because producers were the ones struggling.

Then they called it ‘Unconservative.’

Now Labour has dragged them kicking and screaming to this obvious solution.

Why has it taken them so long while households suffered?

Pleased to attend Croydon Council AGM last night, promises from Conservative Mayor Jason Perry & Labour opposition leader Cllr Stuart King to work together for local people, encouraging to see a fresh, diverse new Labour team ready to stand up for residents across our borough

Good first council meeting. @JasonForCroydon's speech proposing our @Cllr_Alisa to the position of Civic Mayor was very decent. Highlighted how truly brilliant she is.

@Stuart_King was great. Demonstrated yet again how he's the leader to take us forward. Tone perfect.

'It's their job now to hold Boris Johnson to account and remove him from office, but they're too cowardly to do so.'

Labour Shadow Health Secretary @wesstreeting takes aim at 'completely spineless' Conservative MPs.

@AndrewMarr9

"The cost-of-living crisis hasn't just arisen because of what's gone on abroad. He's imposed 15 tax hikes since becoming PM."

Shadow Justice Secretary Steve Reed berates Boris' decision-making and policies while in power.

@SteveReedMP

I can’t bear reading Tory MPs, some of whom I know well and like, tweet straightforward lies. In private they despair, in public they back him. It makes them complicit.

The security guards who were ridiculed by people more powerful than them, and the cleaners scrubbing red wine off the walls, knew that Johnson and co. were breaking the rules, but we’re supposed to believe that Boris Johnson didn’t. Pull the other one.

Boris Johnson has turned Downing Street into a vomit-stained Bullingdon Club.

The treatment and mockery doled out to cleaning and security staff that has now been exposed is beyond shameful.

This Prime Minister has nothing but contempt for the people of this country.

#SueGray

The victim of the disgraced former Wakefield MP told @Conservatives about the sickening sexual abuse he had suffered, and they did nothing

Victims and the people of Wakefield deserve answers.

There must be an independent investigation into their shocking failure to act.
