I'm not saying the Conservative leadership contest is going badly, but they just cancelled tonight's televised debate because they want to stop any more members of the public from seeing it happening.

Would-be Tory leader @KemiBadenoch says immigrants cause the current housing crisis. Is there any social problem she is not prepared to blame on immigrants? #ToryLeadershipFarce

Ministers were warned that their policies would lead to rising child poverty. They went ahead anyway. Children in England in deep poverty ‘stealing food from schools’ theguardian.com/education/2022…
It is a fallacy that we should not stop privatisation and outsourcing because we cannot afford those policies. It is the privatised companies and their profits we cannot afford.
This is a key part of the Boris Johnson legacy, shared by all those who supported him. Benefit cuts since 2010 increased UK child poverty in run-up to pandemic, says IFS theguardian.com/business/2022/…
Levelling up is a Tory lie. Cost of living crisis widens Britain’s north-south divide by 30% theguardian.com/business/2022/…
At least Boris Johnson turned up to the Liaison Committee, to give them a load of flannel and bluster. The current Home Secretary doesn't do accountability at all. thetimes.co.uk/article/priti-…

Today at #PMQs I spoke on behalf of my constituents who have contacted me about the tragic murder of Zara Aleena. Women should not have to police themselves to feel safe. This Government must take concrete steps to tackle the epidemic of violence against women and girls.

Glad the Home Office is no longer going to separate a 14 month baby from his family by denying him a visa. But how many other children are victims of this racism and unfairness? #BlackLivesMatter twitter.com/JamaicaGleaner…
We were told oddly that 20,000 deaths would be a 'good outcome'. This catastrophic number is Boris Johnson's legacy, and all those who supported his policy bear a responsibility. Number of UK Covid deaths passes 200,000, ONS data shows theguardian.com/world/2022/jul…
The Tory candidates' debate over taxes relies on a convenient fallacy. This is that Consumption is an input into growth. As Consumption follows production, it cannot be an input. It can have a role in inducing growth when there is spare capacity. 1/2 newstatesman.com/business/2022/…

It was only in March that all of these Tories were cheering tax hikes in the Spring Statement. Now they are desperate to cut them to save their skins at the next election. 🤡🤡🤡🤡�bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politi…EJiPLCrz
It's no use people pretending how great our immigration system is when it still does this to people who live here. Woman who gave birth in Jamaica stranded after baby refused entry to UK theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/j…
A failure to tackle climate change. A failure of privatisation and under-investment in reservoirs and to prevent leaks. A Tory failure. thetimes.co.uk/article/water-…
So Boris Johnson’s “levelling up” meant that the north-east was poorer than ever theguardian.com/society/2022/j…
But now Zahawi would pack families in exactly the same position on a flight to Rwanda. With a one-way ticket #AsylumSeekers twitter.com/benrileysmith/…
So this Tory activist wants Mo Farah’s knighthood reconsidered because he was trafficked here as a child. Some of these Tories are beyond parody twitter.com/kathyconwom/st…
A string of reported attacks on women in the Hackney Marshes area of East London have led locals to question the Met's ability to tackle lower-level sexual offences. Helen Price reports. @HelenRPrice | #politicslondon | bbc.in/3apVYz8

My latest piece: All the Tories must go "The claims for prosperity, for “levelling up” and “building back better” are a hoax on the British public while living standards are deliberately being pushed lower." morningstaronline.co.uk/article/f/all-…
Disappointing that Priti Patel and Sadiq Khan decided to bring back Mark Rowley from retirement and make him Metropolitan Police Commissioner. He spent much of his career in the Met. No evidence that he is a reformer. Missed opportunity
Congratulations @JoeWalkerUK on a hard fought and well deserved victory in the De Beauvoir by-election @hackneycouncil
Very worrying reports of: rule breaking, voter fraud, voter impersonation and malpractice in Ilford South trigger process. @UKLabour should step in. @SamTarry
I know that guy & I'm telling you -he doesn't think it's over, he's thinking 'there's a war, weird shit happens in a war, play for time play for time, I can still get out of this, I got a mandate, members love me, get to September...'

During the last two years, British billionaires increased their wealth by £220,000,000 a day. On current progress, 1.3 million people living in the UK are set to fall into absolute poverty next year. That's Boris Johnson's legacy #BorisJohnsonResigns

Security tags being added by supermarkets to every day items like cheese, bacon and baby milk. A complete indictment of this government. thetimes.co.uk/article/superm…
While members of the government are concerned only with their own jobs, this country is facing serious issues. UK Covid cases are rising – should we wear masks again? theguardian.com/society/2022/j…
Very important case and Lucy Powell quite right to raise it. twitter.com/LucyMPowell/st…
Our new Chancellor of the Exchequer pocketed £1.3million from an oil company before he became a minister. How can he begin to understand the lives of ordinary people? mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/t…

Our new Chancellor of the Exchequer. Claimed parliamentary expenses for heating his horses stables.

Government plans are deeply troubling for our democracy and for all our civil liberties. Ministers should draw back from this. Senior Council of Europe official urges UK not to repeal Human Rights Act theguardian.com/law/2022/jul/0…
Austerity is a political choice, not an economic necessity. The government is refusing to provide additional funds to meet rising prices and so is forcing children to go hungry or be under-nourished. thetimes.co.uk/article/inflat…
