“David Lammy has chosen to launch a direct attack on BA workers. This is a group of workers who were savagely attacked by their employer during Covid. ‘Fire and rehire’ led to thousands of unnecessary job cuts & pay being slashed.” @UniteSharon 1/3

I respect people have different views on abortion however John Mason’s latest response shows he understands very little about what goes on either inside or outside clinics.

Great night at the New Life Recovery Hub top flyer awards in #Garthamlock. Honoured to receive an award for my support of the Black & Minority Ethnic community.

Demonstrators gathered in the city centre earlier today.

🙉 Fab visit tonight to @MecGlasgowForge in #Parkhead to mark National Bingo Day with staff & customers. Want to hear 300 of my constituents laugh as I screw up in calling the numbers? All for a good cause as we raised money for @decappeal in Ukraine #nbd22 #GenerousEastEnd

Many Glaswegians have missed their summer holiday due to delays in processing new passports.

MP for Glasgow East @DavidLinden is calling on the UK Government to address the matter.

Thanks to all those who attended this morning's help and advice surgery in #Baillieston. Plenty of cases for me to take back to the office and help resolve.

Need my help? Details of upcoming surgeries can be found at: https://davidlinden.scot/events/surgeries

Thank you to Chief Inspector Brian Fraser and Sergeant Eddie McNeil for meeting with me in #Shettleston earlier. Plenty of issues discussed including drugs, anti-social behaviour and community policing efforts. 👮‍♂️

Thank you to Spoon Café and MENSELF for inviting me along to bingo at #Parkhead Schoolhouse this morning. A great event, and very well attended!

The #CostOfLivingCrisis is causing immense hardship. Deductions to Universal Credit payments are compounding the misery for millions, including around 5,000 households in Glasgow East.

My constituents are making their voices heard. The @DWP needs to listen & do the right thing.

‘Perhaps the UK Government should take a feather out of the Scottish Government’s hat and propose 5% along with a 5 year no compulsory redundancy agreement’

@RMTunion representative Mick Hogg spoke to #TheNine after rail workers nationwide went on strike today.

Wonderful day in #Cranhill at the Refugee Festival yesterday. My thanks for @CranhillDT for putting it on and letting me help out. #RefugeesAreWelcomeHere

Yesterday @lauradohertysnp and I met with members of the Residents Association in #Tollcross to hear more about their vision for the refurbishment of the Winter Gardens. If you’d like to get involved with them, please get in touch.

🥄 Thank you to the Spoon Cafe in #Parkhead for accommodating this morning’s advice surgery. Lots of @ukhomeoffice, @DWP and @saastweet casework to pursue. If you want to book into a future surgery, please call 778-1177.

A few weeks ago, we were delighted to have David Linden & Ruairi Kelly come to visit YoMo to find out more about the services we run for young people! They were particularly interested in the mental health and wellbeing services we run. Thank you both for coming in to meet us!

🫖 Popped into The Hi T Company on #Shettleston Road earlier - a fantastic example of a local business paying it forward. They're offering on-duty carers a free coffee/tea and cake when they bring their service users in - a very commendable initiative!
#GlasgowEastLovesLocal

Great to be properly back into the swing of face-to-face help & advice surgeries. #Easterhouse this morning and will be at #Parkhead on Monday morning - call 0141 778 1177 to book an appointment.

'Don't let the Tories' dead cat strategy distract you' | @DavidLinden

My contribution to the Fire and Rehire debate. I outlined my opposition to the exploitive practice and the UKGovt's failure to do anything to deal with it - we are falling behind in worker’s protections, yet still no Employment Bill.

Very proud of my colleague @Stuart_McDonald for introducing the Neonatal Leave and Pay Bill yesterday.

📺 This piece from Reporting Scotland explains just how beneficial the Bill would be to tens of thousand of families each year.

Next week rail strikes are scheduled to go ahead on 3 days, with severe disruption & cancellations for most of the week.
It's the biggest #railstrike for decades, yet the Transport Secretary refuses to get involved and has poured fuel on the fire with his incendiary rhetoric 1/3

Once again, Labour refuses to back the devolution of employment powers to Scotland - choosing instead to keep them in the hands of the Tories at Westminster. Shameful.🥀

Really pleased to be joining @Glasgow_Times as their new columnist. On the train home from Westminster and writing my first piece for tomorrow's edition. #buyapaper

If #Brexit was about taking back control and improving workers’ rights, why is the British Government refusing to take action on shady practices like #FireAndRehire?

🌍 For countries of Scotland's size, independence works.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 With the powers of independence, they built happier, fairer and wealthier societies than the UK - so #WhyNotScotland?

🗳️ That better country is within our grasp, but only you can make it happen. http://yes.scot/signup

Scotland's First Minister @NicolaSturgeon says people across the country are suffering from "many, many implications of a Brexit they did not vote for", as she sets her case for a new referendum on Scottish independence.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Independent countries of similar size to Scotland are wealthier, happier and fairer than the UK - so why not an independent Scotland?

As a Christian, I do not believe that we can talk about practising love for others while simultaneously pursuing a ban on #ConversionTherapy that excludes trans and non-binary people.

⚪️ Are you button battery aware? Have a read of the latest post on my website to learn about the potential dangers to young children.

Thank you to the @HarperLeeFDN and to my constituent @michelle83kenna for raising #ButtonBatteryAwareness.

Archbishop Nolan: “The policy of forcibly deporting to Rwanda people who have come to this country in search of safety and security is morally wrong.
"It is an offence against human dignity and against all the best traditions of welcome of this country.”

👨‍🍳 Our offering for the @BGhobhainn school fair today. I’m willing to concede that @Channel4 are unlikely to rush to offer me a place for the next series of #GBBO…

I’m calling on the UK Government to ratify the #IstanbulConvention without reservations to protect ALL women from violence. They must not cut off migrant women from this lifeline. @pritipatel #AllWomenMeansAllWomen

Really enjoying visiting Pop 'n' Tee at their new location on Main Street in #Baillieston. I don't think I've ever seen so many Funko POP figures in one place! Lots more in store too including games, keychains and t-shirts.
#GlasgowEastLovesLocal

🎙Thank you to @GlasgowFuse for inviting @DavidLinden & I along to take part in the Fuse News Podcast. Some great discussion on young people participating in their communities & local democracy.

Another full help and advice surgery this morning in #Parkhead. If you want to speak to me about an issue or problem, visit http://davidlinden.scot/events/surgeries for details of upcoming surgeries and call 0141 778 1177 to book a spot.

Lovely to be at @stpaulsshet Eco Garden Party yesterday with @DavidLinden ! Such a tremendous amount of effort put in & thank you to the pupils for the tour! Especially loved the bee hive! 🐝

What an incredible night at the City of Dance finals! Huge well done to the team at @PEPASSGlasgow for organising!

Congratulations to all Primary & Secondary schools across Glasgow who entered & who made it to the final. And congratulations to those who won in their category!

✍🏻 Home after a busy constituency day, followed by @Shettleston_SNP’s branch meeting. Now to tackle this week’s constituency casework correspondence…
