Thank you to @unitetheunion @UniteWales for the invitation to speak on the life of the great Nye Bevan and the creation of the NHS at @BevanFestival in Tredegar.

I’m proud to be a biographer of Nye - today I even got to sit in his seat on the Tredegar Urban District Council!

Unbelievable! There’s just no sense of urgency with this Government. #Evusheld is the route for many immunocompromised, clinically vulnerable and clinically extremely vulnerable people to “live with COVID” too. Time for Ministers to act!

The Conservatives are soft on rape, soft on rapists and they don’t like to face the fact that they’re letting sex offenders off and letting survivors down. No-one is going to stop me from standing up for victims. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/30/minister-complains-speaker-labour-remarks-convictions?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

I've been raising concerns about how the Home Office treats LGBTQ+ people for months and now we hear this terrible news. @pritipatel you CAN stop this now. A mans life is in real danger. They have been publicly outed. @VotePursglove https://twitter.com/leilazadeh/status/1542210158474018817

What a wonderful evening meeting Black, Asian and ethnic minority businesses at our @UKLabour reception tonight.

Inspiring entrepreneurs, brilliant businesses and industry leaders like these are shaping the future of the landscape with their formidable talent.

The unfathomable pain inflicted by a stranger’s inhuman brutality to their precious daughter echos in every line of this tribute

As a woman, a mother, a sister & as a human, I stand with her family.
Rest in power #ZaraAleena.

Our fight to stop VAWG continues. #EnoughIsEnough

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. 🎻

"When concerns were being put to the Met, we got the same defensive response back."

Labour's Wes Streeting, whose constituent Zara Aleena was killed at the weekend, tells LBC "the biggest challenge the Met faces is the loss of trust and confidence."


"For every woman killed on the streets of London by a man, dozens more run for their lives down darkened streets."

Andrew Marr makes a moving tribute to lawyer Zara Aleena and all other women who have died on the London streets due to male violence.


I know many of our neighbours are worried about local safety following the suspected murder of Zara Aleena on Sunday. A man has been charged with her murder & is in custody.

My thoughts & prayers are with Zara's family at this unimaginable and heartbreaking time of loss


.@AngelaRayner wiped the floor with Dominic Raab at #PMQs. Tax rises, struggling families and broken promises - how much more will Tory MPs tolerate before they tell Boris Johnson enough is enough.

“Zara believed that a woman should be able to walk home.”

Please, take the time to read every word of this tribute to Zara Aleena by her family. I’m not sure I’ve read anything quite like it before.

A suspect arrested in the murder of Zara Aleena has been charged with murder as well as attempted rape and robbery.

Thank you to @MPSRedbridge for the fast response to get this man off the streets.

My heart remains with Zara’s family and friends today.

Deeply sad news.

Dame Deborah James’ charity work was truly inspirational — even in the most challenging moments, she continued to raise awareness about bowel cancer and impacted so many people’s lives.

Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time. https://twitter.com/bbcnews/status/1541874701886160898

The Inspectorate is right to demand reform from the Metropolitan Police & to set higher standards for the new Commissioner - something that Labour, the Mayor of London & London residents have been calling for for some time.

Walthamstow if you were on Orford road near my office between 5.30 and 8pm today please come forward to help us catch the cowards who attacked my office. Please share to help find who did this - you can also give anonymous info on crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.

Great to speak at the @TargetOvarian reception today

When more people are aware of Ovarian Cancer symptoms, more lives are saved.

Make sure you're aware of:
💜 Persistent bloated tummy
💜 Always feeling full
💜 Tummy pain
💜 Needing to wee more

The health of the economy and the health of our people are inseparable. It was good to talk to ⁦@Anoosh_C⁩ ⁦@NewStatesman⁩ with Shadow Chancellor ⁦@RachelReevesMP⁩ on a joint visit to Leeds 👇🏻 https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/labour/2022/06/we-dont-want-to-see-nhs-strikes-wes-streeting-and-rachel-reeves-on-labour-in-an-age-of-inflation?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1656403421

Why do the Conservatives blame working people for rising inflation?

They simply won't face up to the fact that a decade of Tory wage stagnation is making matters worse.

@wesstreeting & I spoke to @Anoosh_C about how Labour will build a stronger economy.

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/

☎️ 470,000 mental health 999 calls each year.
🚑 Thousands going to A&E in a mental health crisis.
⏳ Some children stuck in A&E for days waiting for a mental health bed.

The Government needs to get a grip of the mental health crisis across our country.

Lovely to see @simonlightwood at the @LGBTLabour PLP reception on his first day in Parliament with @Steph_Peacock. We’re so proud to welcome him into the slightly surreal world of the House of Commons.

Wonderful to celebrate the @CottinghamTrust tonight in the House of Lords with @mcashmanCBE and to see @MrsSHC recognised for her courage in defence of equality and inclusion. A fitting tribute to her and to the memory of our dear friend Paul. She never flinched. ♥️

For 25 years, @BenPBradshaw has been a brilliant MP for Exeter, Labour, and the whole country. I’m excited and very proud to have won his endorsement for the Exeter selection. Thank you!

“We can’t go from clapping for NHS workers to slapping them in pay discussions…”

Patients will expect the Government to treat NHS staff with respect and act now to avert strikes.

A murder investigation is underway after the death of a woman who was found injured on Cranbrook Road yesterday.

If anyone has any information that could help @MPSRedbridge with their investigation, please contact them on 📞0208 345 3715

'If we take steps back [on equality] it will diminish us as a country'

Labour's Peter Kyle warns "anything is possible" and governments can go "backwards as well as forwards" on equality, even in the UK.

Police have launched a murder inquiry after a woman died with serious head injuries in #Ilford #Redbridge. Her family are aware and my heart goes out to them.

Do you have information that could help detectives?

The quicker the election comes, the quicker this country will get a Labour government that delivers the positive change people are crying out for.

⁦@Keir_Starmer⁩ in today’s Observer 👇🏻 https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jun/26/labour-has-now-claimed-the-centre-ground-and-has-shown-it-can-win?

Important police appeal for information following an attack on a woman overnight on Cranbrook Road. She has suffered serious head injuries and is in a critical condition.

If you were in the area, you may have crucial evidence. Please read and share: https://www.facebook.com/100058167065599/posts/pfbid0i1ZnGob1QdretfcLb63ixPgPUeBtUBbTnLR4dVLPjFj3B5bLa5vCuGpRgGKcYKD8l/?d=n

The Conservatives have cut 4,500 GPs over the last decade and left ‘dental deserts’ so bad that people are resorting to removing teeth using pliers in DIY dentistry at home.

The longer the Conservatives are in power, the longer patients will wait.

My @IlfordRecorder column 👇🏻

This is a very powerful and moving interview from @sajidjavid.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Let’s do what it takes to reduce the prevalence of mental ill-health and speed up access to treatment for those who need it.


It was great to be back out on the doorstep in Churchfields.

We made a promise to residents we would not just call at election time, it's a promise we are going to keep.

Fantastic morning on the doorstep in Churchfields before heading to join @ElizabethBapti4 in Valley ward this afternoon.

Great local councillors make a huge difference in communities - proud to be part of strong teams delivering for our neighbours.

Chilling, heartbreaking news from Oslo.

My prayers are with the victims and their families.

This is why Pride matters. Oslo Pride may not be happening today, but they will march again because hate will not win.
