I'm relieved that Arriva and Unite have been able to reach an agreement to be put to staff, and that services will resume from Saturday 2 July. Read my full statement at http://ow.ly/tO5t50JLwxf
This latest report on police perpetrator domestic abuse is extremely troubling and together with @DeputyMayorPCWY, we will be carefully examining its contents, ensuring we have the right approach here in West Yorkshire.
Together with @CollegeofPolice and @policeconduct we investigated a super-complaint from the @centreWJ.
Read our report here:
In the end it wasn't the "powerful" men, it was a young girl who stood before the world and took an oath.
I'm not the least bit surprised.
Trace is just fine! 📸
Wow! 1 week on since the opening of @albionstreetstudios @tracybrabin @MayorOfWY @rainbowtroutfilms

Dominic Raab won’t approve but I did indeed go the opera last week (it cost me £62).
Tom Eisner, a working-class lad from Buxton near where I grew up kindly invited me. He’s been playing violin at Glyndebourne for 36 years.
Never let anyone tell you you’re not good enough. 🎻
Today in pulp... Ballantine books from the 1970s!

This is deeply troubling.
If women don’t have autonomy over their bodies, who does? Lawyers? Politicians? Men?
I’m sure the wonderful women of #Wiltshire might have an opinion.
Tory MP Danny Kruger says he doesn’t agree that “women have an absolute right to bodily autonomy".
Last week I took part in @BradfordLitFest opening event to talk about how creative industries can boost economic growth in West Yorks & the UK. The Festival is continuing & there are still amazing speakers and events to come. You can get involved here: http://ow.ly/wN8s50JJN2T

At least half a dozen Tory MPs are talking about defecting to Labour, according to Labour insiders. Westminster was full of speculation that a defection could take place at PMQ's two weeks ago.
While it did not happen, the recent by-elections are thought to be a new trigger
Get ready to move your feet ‘cause it’s time for @nilerodgers & CHIC 🕺
Who needs #Glastonbury2022 when you’ve got @nilerodgers at @ThePieceHall @NickyChanThomDL 🎉☀️

What a line up for ‘What Lights my Feminist Fire’ @BradfordLitFest @Ayisha_Malik @monaeltahawy @TracyBrabin expertly chaired by @SyimaAslam #BLF2022
Oslo Pride has been cancelled because of a terrorist attack on a gay bar. This is why Pride is still important and definitely a protest.
Thinking of everyone in Norway touched by this tragedy 🇳🇴 🌈
Bus companies must hold their nerve.
It can’t be right that after almost 2 years of support from us & govt, companies withdraw unprofitable services.
We’re ready to transform the network with BSIP money early 2023.
I urge bus companies - do the right thing & stay the course
MP for Blackpool South RTs the rolling back of women’s rights in US. This should trouble us all.
Tory MP @ScottBentonMP has just RTed @GOP tweet celebrating the rolling back of abortion rights in the US
A stellar line up of speakers discussing the Gender Gap @TracyBrabin @kersten_england @monaeltahawy @ShirleyCongdon at the @BradfordLitFest

What a brilliant day at the @BradfordLitFest . And still more days to go. Inspiring to see how the amazing @TracyBrabin is putting culture & the CIs at the centre of her Mayoral agenda. We need more Tracys!!!! https://twitter.com/TracyBrabin/status/1540319149494239232
.@BradfordLitFest smashing it. The only creative/economic conference in the UK!
Opened with brilliant presentation @PeterBazalgette on power of culture to boost regional economies.
Also great to bump into powerhouse that is @CarolineNorbury from Creative Industries Federation
My thoughts on the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Shocking news. Harry was one of the best. Diligent, warm and brilliant at his job with a passion for our region that was second to none. Condolences to his family, friends and colleagues who loved him dearly.
Our much loved friend and colleague Harry Gration died suddenly today. We are absolutely heartbroken to give you this news.
Tonight our hearts go out to Harry's wife Helen, their children and all of Harry's family and friends.
On a panel with @monaeltahawy @BradfordLitFest talking about gender pay gap when the news came through #RoeVWade.
It reminds us complacency is dangerous. We must remain vigilant to any erosions of #WomensRights in UK too.
Overturning Roe and outlawing abortions will never make them go away.
It only makes them more dangerous, especially for the poor + marginalized.
People will die because of this decision. And we will never stop until abortion rights are restored in the United States of America.
Today our CEO @NickyChanThomDL will be chairing an important panel with @TracyBrabin, Andy Haldane & @ShanazGulzar at @BradfordLitFest to discuss levelling up in the north.
