What has Vicky Foxcroft been up to today?

Vicky Foxcroft is MP for Lewisham, Deptford and a member of the Labour party.

Vicky Foxcroft has 22786 followers on Twitter.

.@grantshapps has repeatedly refused to meet @SadiqKhan about a long-term funding deal for @TfL.

Rather than meeting with @RMTunion to prevent the #ToryRailStrikes, he's instead spent the time making cringeworthy TikTok's and fuelling the flames of a culture war against unions.

Unbelievable! Thereโ€™s just no sense of urgency with this Government. #Evusheld is the route for many immunocompromised, clinically vulnerable and clinically extremely vulnerable people to โ€œlive with COVIDโ€ too. Time for Ministers to act!

It's important that the Home Secretary @pritipatel understands our feelings, as the London PLP, following the news that the Met Police Service have been put into special measures.

Our letter, co-signed by fellow London Labour MPs, with 3 hours notice.

Will no doubt add more.๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

๐Ÿšจ New date alert!

Instead of trying to resolve the rail dispute the Tories are using it as another excuse to attack trade unions my piece for @LabourList https://labourlist.org/2022/06/breaking-strikes-using-agency-workers-is-recklessly-gambling-with-public-safety/

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the countryโ€™s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.

This Conservative Governmentโ€™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.

This week is #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek. Iโ€™ll always be glad my abnormal cells were picked up early at a routine smear test.

Cervical screening can save lives, but smears aren't easy for everyone.

Follow @JoTrust this week to learn more and find out how to access support.

Britain is facing the biggest rail strike in a generation but @GrantShapps hasnโ€™t spent a single second in talks to avert it since March.

Time is running out. The Tories must get round the table and sort this out.

I visited Crofton Park train station yesterday with @acinderellaline and @TLRailUK this afternoon. Pleased to see the changes to the station platform which will make it much easier to access services. 1/2

I am one of almost 100 Labour women MPs who have written to Boris Johnson today urging him to block new rules which threaten the rights of rape survivors to seek counselling before their attackers go on trial. No survivor should ever have to choose between therapy and justice.

A real privilege to speak at the #TimesCEOSummit today, talking about how Labour will make Britain the best place to start and grow a business.

Our new review will make sure start-ups here can reach their full potential, in one of the most innovative countries in the world.

I asked the @CommonsLeader when @DHSCgovuk would publish a timetable for the release of Evusheld.

Immunocompromised people need the certainty & hope this life-changing drug will provide.

Compliments are nice but help no one - we can say nice things when we get the job done.

Brilliant to join @mencap_charity today and talk all things Learning Disability Week with people from across the country.

Their report on the impact of Covid on the mental health of people with a learning disability is essential reading. The link is here: https://bit.ly/3NUvSml

Great to see that the brilliant @BlytheHillTav has been listed by @HistoricEngland thanks to its impressive interiors.

You can add your own photos to the List for others to enjoy here ๐Ÿ‘‰ https://bit.ly/3aUtMEv

Evusheld massively improves immunocompromised peoples' ability to fight covid-19 - it's the route to freedom for many people still shielding.

The @DHSCgovuk need to do more to speedy up this vital vaccine being rolled out!

Britainโ€™s economy has ground to a halt.

But Rishi Sunak thinks sticking plasters will fix it.

Only Labour has a plan to make our economy stronger โ€“ giving families, businesses, the energy sector and our supply chains the security they need.

What an absolute shower.

They tell us theyโ€™re levelling up the country but this is what they truly think. They canโ€™t even tell the difference between โ€œBlackpool or Birmingham or somewhere godawfulโ€.

Clueless and offensive.

Thank you @VickyFoxcroft MP for a fabulous #DigitalSurgery session this morning!

Thank you to everyone who came to the @UKLabour Wales regional roadshow today and to

We remain determined to co-produce with disabled people- the experts by experience.

I'll be joined by disabled people from across the country to hear about how to end the postcode lottery.

The new CPS guidelines on disclosure risk making it even harder for the survivors of rape to seek counselling while waiting for justice. I don't believe that's what the Attorney General intended, but she must take immediate steps to correct it now. My full statement is here.

This #CarersWeek, @CarersUK are calling for the Government to publish a Recovery and Respite Plan for Unpaid Carers. I fully support this call to ensure all unpaid carers get the support they need and deserve.

You can also support the campaign here:

The choice is clearer than ever before:

Divided Tories propping up Boris Johnson with no plan to tackle the issues you are facing.

Or a united Labour Party with a plan to fix the cost of living crisis and restore trust in politics.

Labour will get Britain back on track.

(1/2) 1000s of disabled people will lose ยฃ150 thanks to the Gov removing their eligibility for Warm Home Discount.

Chancellor @RishiSunak has announced they will receive an additional ยฃ150 in his cost-of-living emergency package.

Great weekend spent visiting street parties and community events in #LewishamDeptford.
Thanks so much for welcoming me to your celebrations, I had a lovely time seeing people from across the constituency.

Now... back in parliament for another busy week!

๐ŸšจThe Tories are playing politics with Londonโ€™s transport.

๐ŸšŒToday's Tory bus cuts will disproportionately affect disabled Londoners who rely on buses to get around our city.

This isn't acceptable.

Great to meet @voice4deptford at Pepys Community Library last Fri with @vickyfoxcroft MP, to talk #ConvoysWharf & how locals have continually felt left behind in the developments

Nowhere near enough social housing, nor community spaces. Nowhere near good enough #HutchisonWhampoa

Labour pushed for the windfall tax. The Tories adopted it.

We said the buy now pay later scheme was wrong. Now theyโ€™ve ditched it.

This is a chaotic, incompetent Tory government.
