🚨 Time is running out for the Tories to avert the rail strike.

The Government has just 24 hours to stop the grandstanding and fix the mess it has created.

Add your name to tell the Tories to avoid the strike. ✍️

Today marks five years since 72 people were killed in the Grenfell Tower fire. Today we remember the victims, as well as the survivors who are still waiting for justice these years on.

It has been five years since 72 people were killed by a fire at Grenfell Tower.

The appalling tragedy is evidence of the unequal society we live in under this Tory government.

Today we remember the victims and demand action to ensure a similar tragedy can never happen again.

I was pleased to attend the reception of Rochdale's Mayor, Ali Ahmed, at the Bangladesh Association & Community Project. The large established Bangladeshi community in #Rochdale makes an important contribution to the Borough. (🧵1/2)

Charges down, response times up & victims left despairing; BBC investigation shows action on crime getting worse.

With 7000 fewer neighbourhood police, crime rising, more criminals let off & more victims let down, this Govt is badly failing on law & order https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-61592910

I was honoured to be asked to do a reading at The Civic Sunday Service today @RochdaleStChads.

January 2022: Labour calls for a windfall tax on oil and gas profits to lower energy bills.

Five months later: the Tories finally U-turn.

Their delay has cost British households millions of pounds a day.

Labour has been calling for a windfall tax on excess oil and gas profits to lower your energy bills for five months.

What took the government so long?

Labour forces the Tories to u-turn on a windfall tax. Whilst the government dithered and delayed on this, many households have suffered.

It should have been obvious from the outset.

I was pleased to welcome Rochdale's new Mayor, Cllr Ali Ahmed, into Parliament. Ali is Rochdale's first Mayor of Bangladeshi heritage, and will make an excellent mayor for everyone in the Borough. With us were Apsana Begum MP, Ali’s niece, and Cllr Iftikhar Ahmed.

The lack of significant govt help with the cost of living crisis alongside real terms cuts to support has left disabled people in a desperate state with many unable to pay the rocketing energy bills.

We need an emergency budget and real help now.

@tony4rochdale asked for a @ukhomeoffice Minister to explain the strategy for resolving the unacceptable department-wide delays in responding to correspondence.

On Saturday we'll attend the 'DK' day at our friends @Fireground999 with our #Rochdale bus number 235 - as it's registered HDK835...

We're both part of the 'Hidden 8' network of smaller brilliant museums around Greater Manchester - find out more at https://www.thehidden8.com/

📺Watch: Home Office ministers must provide a strategy for resolving the huge and outrageous backlog of outstanding Home Office cases👇

📺Watch: In Rochdale many people, before inflation began to become an issue, were already finding it difficult to make ends meet.

That's not propaganda, that's a matter of practical reality.

NEW: Inflation has risen to 9% - the highest in 40 years.

A huge worry for families already stretched.

We can’t wait any longer for action from this out of touch government.

Today, Labour force a vote for an Emergency Budget and for a plan for growth.

The Tories must back it.
