🏳️‍🌈Great to hear many of my @UKLabour colleagues speak in the #50YearsofPride debate in Parliament today.

We must continue to stand up for LGBTQ+ rights in the UK and around the world.

On the 50th anniversary of #pride roll back of #LGBT rights are happening right now. Equality is not a one way street - it can and is being reversed at home and abroad.

Now is the time for us to wake from comfortable complacency to stand up for everyone in our big LGBT family.

Every week constituents tell me about the difficulties they face accessing GP appointments.

If the government really wants to all they can to solve this crisis, they can start by unleashing the potential of community pharmacists, who could free up to 40 million GP appointments.

#OnThisDay in 1969, LGBT+ people resisted a police raid at the Stonewall Inn in New York, sparking the #Pride movement.

It's so important we celebrate LGBT+ history in this country too.

My thanks to Joseph Galliano for showing me around the excellent @QueerBritain museum.

🛂Over 35,000 people waiting over ten weeks for a passport this year.

⚖️Backlog in crown courts up 25% over the past five years.

🏥Record number of patients waiting for NHS treatment.

🚗Over 740,000 waiting for driving licences.

Welcome to Boris Johnson's #BacklogBritain

📈With inflation at a 40-year high, people are experiencing the greatest squeeze on their living standards in a generation.

Workers have every right to demand better.

This is a Tory cost of living crisis - and it's their job to fix it.

Under the Tories' inflation crisis, working people are facing the biggest pay cut in years.

They have every right to fight for a fair pay rise and decent conditions.

Working people must not pay the price for Tory failure. https://twitter.com/LouHaigh/status/1539250212472078337

Louise Haigh @LouHaigh

Rail workers kept our country going during the pandemic.

They deserve fair pay and respect.

Grant Shapps should get around the table with them and resolve this dispute.

"The government's move to replace skilled and safety-critical workers on strike is deliberately inflammatory. It is also a reckless threat to public safety," writes @justinmadders as proposals for breaking strikes using agency workers are published: https://labourlist.org/2022/06/breaking-strikes-using-agency-workers-is-recklessly-gambling-with-public-safety/

🏘️Last week, I attended a meeting for residents of Nauls Mill House, following the fire that took place in the block of flats in April: https://www.itv.com/news/central/2022-04-16/people-evacuated-from-high-rise-flats-following-severe-fire-in-coventry

🖼️ It was so lovely to stop by and see the 'Quilt of Love and Hope' that was displayed at Coventry Cathedral over the weekend.

The quilt is made up of patches contributed by grandparents who are estranged from their grandchildren.

This is a devastating step backwards for women's rights in the United States.

Every woman who needs one should have the right to a safe and legal abortion.

Solidarity with every woman affected by this cruel decision. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-61928898

Oliver has resigned because he can no longer defend the indefensible.

He’s been so busy fighting fires in the Tory Party that he never once replied to my letters.

I’d like to wish Oliver all the best for the future. I’ll be forwarding all my correspondence to his successor. https://twitter.com/OliverDowden/status/1540191893258207232

Oliver Dowden @OliverDowden

Since Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine in February, countless families have been displaced, with some of these people being given refuge in the UK through the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

🚨 @hopenothate are under attack by #TommyRobinson and #BritainFirst. They’re ambushing their supporters, family members, and making unfounded complaints to the police.

Can you help by chipping into their crowdfunder to deal with the security threats? 👇🏿

Thank you so much all involved @birminghamcg22 for the opportunity and all who came down last Sunday 🔥🔥🔥 Our 1st @fridayscoventry outdoor event and it went 🔥🔥🔥 we had food, boxing, wheelchair basketball, football, badminton and more sports activities along side raffle

The Windrush generation helped build Britain.

But the Tories' hostile environment left many homeless, jobless and without healthcare. Victims are still waiting for the justice and compensation they deserve.

Windrush descendent @DavidLammy tells their story. #WindrushDay

We have a Prime Minister who wants people to believe that we are all the same, that things can’t change.

All I would say to the people of Britain is this:

Judge the Conservatives on their record and judge Labour on ours.

"It is deeply frustrating to hear about the steady erosion in the availability of community pharmacies."
