Reported by the @BBCNews, a 100+ families are having to fund #medicinalcannabis privately at a monthly cost of up to £2,000. Families are finding it increasingly difficult to continue to raise monthly prescription costs.
@IntractableUK charity aims to help families like Rocco’s.
EXC: @RishiSunak told Tories in Tunbridge Wells that as Chancellor he tried to reverse Treasury formulas "that shoved all the funding into deprived urban areas" so areas like theirs could benefit

When he shouldn’t be having a party you can’t stop him but Boris won’t recognise the Lionesses amazing achievement
The Lionesses won't get a reception at Downing Street after winning the Euros, despite the men's 2005 cricket and 2003 rugby teams being so honoured after their tournament victories
71% of Brits think this is wrong, and say there should be a reception
Great work from @ucu. I was astonished to hear how many staff in HE have no job security & are expected to move from casual contract to casual contract from @SwanseaUcu when I visited them on the picket line
Hopefully other institutions will follow the Open University’s lead
🚨 HUGE WIN at the Open University 🚨
*4,800* staff will be brought off fixed-term and onto permanent contracts, in the biggest ever de-casualisation programme in UK higher education.
This deal shows the way for the entire sector.

Have a look at the amazing sessions running at Clydach Library this summer.
Siobhain’s story upset me so much yesterday, my love goes out to her partner and family.
There is so much more we can do to improve player safety.
It’s time to make change happen properly,stop paying lip service and sending legal platitudes to grieving families.
🔺 EXCLUSIVE: It was Siobhan Cattigan’s dream to play rugby for Scotland. She died just three years after that dream came true. For the first time, her grief-stricken family and partner tell her story https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/they-fixed-siobhan-s-broken-bones-but-turned-their-back-on-her-broken-brain-n668rkwlt?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1659202251

WEMBLEY AWAITS 🤩
WE'LL SEE YOU ON SUNDAY FOR THE #WEURO2022 FINAL!
Whilst no paediatric prescribers come forward we will see more families suffer like this family. @10DowningStreet could do way more to resolve the #NHS policy blocks. @CDPRGUK @End_Our_Pain @ronniecowan @ToniaAntoniazzi @AlbertoCostaMP https://twitter.com/IntractableUK/status/1553656881285140481
So sad to see parents suffer due to the lack of prescribing in both the NHS and private sector.

Train drivers and staff kept this country going during the pandemic.
They deserve a fair pay rise and respect.
Grant Shapps should stop boycotting the talks, do his job and get around the table to agree a deal.
Ignore the people who are (wrongly) claiming that the Cass Review is just about a reorganisation of gender identity services & read this by @VictoriaPeckham instead

@RFU ...any other organization with concerns for women's sport has to recognize why the category exists, why exceptions undermine the integrity of the category, and why they are doing the right thing for fairness and safety by rigidly protecting the boundary around women's sport.
You’re a brilliant voice for women’s rugby Brian.
Your experience and knowledge of the game is exactly why you pick your words carefully and put safety and fairness in sport at the fore.
Thank you 🙏 ☺️
Having said this, these are genuinely my final comments on the Women's/trans rugby issue
I've had enough of being accused of being a misogynist, transphobic, not caring about women (even though I have 4 girls who play or played rugby,) an idiot, brain-damaged and more.
I’d like to thank the @RFU and its President Jeff Blackett for his constructive comments.

A harrowing but necessary read to remember these women💜
Thanks to @Womens_Aid for conducting such important research in their Stolen Lives project to ensure these women's lives and stories are not forgotten.

1996 was a particularly gruesome year for “femicide”, with 19 killings of women. That terrible toll prompted Women’s Aid to initiate the Stolen Lives project, which has shared its research with The Irish Times for this article
The former Chancellor opposed this every step of the way since Labour proposed it in October - whipping Tory MPs to vote against it time after time.
The Tories have nothing to offer.
Labour are winning the battle of ideas in Britain.
Rishi Sunak has been accused of a “screeching U-turn” on tax cuts as he vowed to scrap VAT on energy bills for a year if he becomes prime minister

Grant Shapps spent more time on his doomed leadership bid than on resolving the strikes. It’s a serious dereliction of duty.
Labour will always defend the right of working people to organise and withdraw their labour - to stand up for services, public safety, defend jobs & pay.
The biggest national rail strike in decades and the Transport Secretary is refusing to do his job.

@AMCarwyn writes on why he's standing to be the Welsh rep on UK Labour's ruling body.
Police Officer accused of sexual offences "used handcuffs as a restraint". It's alleged he used police restraint techniques incl handcuffs. We said this in the #policesupercomplaint - they use the learning from their roles to abuse.
