iPhone : A “New Deal”?

Where Greens lead others follow.

But to be new it needs to be GREEN.

- No more road building

- No more subsidies for polluting industries

- Massive investment in the new green economy

- A basic income so no one is left behind…

iPhone : Wow. Despite Universal Credit being in demand as never before, and the looming unemployment crisis - Cabinet Office is suggesting the DWP brief wasnt a salient topic over the course of *92* daily press briefings.

iPhone : The government should invest £31bn into our education buildings by 2030 to cover repairs and retrofitting to net-zero.
💡 This will create jobs across the whole of the UK, reduce emissions and inspire students.…

iPhone : Plenty of dogs from UK breeders & rescues need homes. Transporting young pups long distances is often stressful, before being sold for ridiculous prices to unsuspecting dog-lovers. Government should ban this activity - please sign to #BanPuppyImports 👇…

Twitter Web App : If ministers’ talk of a green recovery is to have any meaning, it must focus on health & well-being of people & nature – not GDP growth stats

We have chance to #BuildBackBetter for future generations. Rishi Sunak should take it


My amendment to #FinanceBill 👇

Twitter Web App : Roosevelt's New Deal helped build fairer, greener US. Johnson's version risks driving us straight to #climatecrisis

The *deal* we need now is a #GreenNewDeal
- green infrastructure, not new roads
- protection for workers, not CEO bonuses


Twitter Web App : Huge public support for far-reaching change needs to be heard in Parliament

That’s what #ResetUK offers: a chance for people to work with MPs to #buildbackbetter after Covid

Have your say at…

iPhone : As the Government starts withdrawing its support, millions are hurtling towards an unprecedented wave of poverty, homelessness and unemployment.

Our plan is that no one should be left behind is this crisis and we must do whatever it takes.…

iPhone : Today is the day we start to #BuildBackBetter. Incredible backing so far from 350 civil society organisations. Now, please, add your name.

iPhone : This attack on our impartial civil service is completely unacceptable.
The more so because the hand behind it belongs to an unelected official who treats rules - & the rest of us - with contempt…

Twitter Web App : I’m supporting a new #NationalNatureService that will train and employ people to restore #nature as we rebuild from the Covid-19 crisis.
Help convince the Government to take this forward by pledging your support…

iPhone : Only 13% of working parents want to go back to ‘old normal’

Great to see parents claiming liberation from 9-5 stress

😄 48% want more remote working
😄 53% believe flexibility would increase their productivity
😄 58% say it would increase their loyalty…

iPhone : Will Covid change everything? And if so, who should decide how?

We think it should be everyone–including you. Reset is a national conversation, initiated by MPs from all parties, to shape the post-Covid world. Speak out, be heard, get involved. #RESET

iPhone : Pleased to be part of this cross-party group leading calls for independent inquiry into UK #coronavirus response.

It’s vital that we learn the lessons rather than repeat them.
Ministers should welcome chance to assess, not seek to avoid it.…

iPhone : Reset is about how to rebuild after coronavirus, tackle the #climate crisis & ensure everyone’s voices are heard

V pleased to be part of this great initiative from cross-party group of MPs
