Twitter Web App : Tomorrow, the Conservatives can do the right thing and vote with Labour to #CancelTheCut to Universal Credit.

Their cut will cost six million families £1,000 a year and push 200,000 children into poverty.

It's the worst possible time to strip support from families who need it.

iPhone : I urge Conservative MPs to put party politics aside and vote with Labour tomorrow to stop this hit to millions of people already struggling to get by #Ridge #Cancelthecut

Twitter Web App : After the worst recession of any major economy, now we’re in danger of a devastating double dip.

The Chancellor’s response? A triple hammer blow of council tax rises, benefit cuts and pay freezes.

Labour would act to secure our economy, protect our NHS and rebuild our country.

Twitter Web App : 2020 was an awful year. But this isnt just bad luck, as the prime minister would like us to believe. What were seeing now are the consequences of Boris Johnsons decisions. The slowness. The indecision. The incompetence – Keir Starmer #FEPSFAB21

Twitter Web App : Really impressed by Keir Starmer discussing the importance of mental health, especially in education. We need to start with education, making sure that young people understand mental health and dont see mental health issues as something to be ashamed of #FEPSFAB21

iPhone : This scandal gets worse.

400,000 records have been deleted.

It seems inevitable that criminals will escape punishment, victims will lose out on justice & communities will be less safe

The Home Secretary has urgent and deeply serious questions to answer

iPhone : This leak exposes the truth about the Government's priorities, which are way out of step with the needs of workers and their families. In the midst of the worst economic crisis in three centuries, ministers are preparing to take a sledgehammer to workers’ rights. (1/3) twitter.com/hendopolis/sta…

Twitter Web App : Commonwealth troops risk their lives to keep us safe yet face huge fees when applying for their hard-won right to citizenship.

Twitter Web App : The Vaccine rollout is the only way to end this pandemic, yet the Government have shunned the skills and expertise of community pharmacies.

Keir Starmer is right the Government needs to “match the nation’s ambition” with a 24/7 rollout of jabs.
