Terrific virtual “Curry & Politics” fundraiser held by Gospel Oak Labour tonight. Delighted to be joined by Keir Starmer.

Great event with my local party - thanks all @hstplabour

It’s difficult to find words to express the tragedy at the number of people dying every day to this terrible virus.

Thank you to all on the front line, working so hard to keep us safe.

I'm meeting with Scotch Whisky producers today. After failing with Trump, the Government must work with President Biden to ensure tariffs are lifted and Scottish jobs are protected.

Congratulations @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris.

The US begins a new chapter in its history, one of hope, decency, compassion and strength.

Together, our two nations can build a better, more optimistic future for our world.

The Prime Minister left our nation’s borders open while strands of coronavirus were being imported from overseas.

In December, I was in Doncaster to call for a taskforce to be set up to protect areas which are prone to flooding.

These flood-hit communities can't be let down again.

The UK has faced the deepest recession of any major economy, and now we have the highest daily death rate in the world.

The British people are paying the price for the Government’s serial incompetence.

Only once before have we published a special front page in additional to the weekly newspaper. Until today. But it doesn’t get more urgent than the light of the uyghurs

@Nus_Ghani @MahmutRahima @lisanandy @TomTugendhat

Labour condemns the persecution of the Uyghur community in China.

We will be supporting amendments in Parliament today to ensure Britain never turns a blind eye to genocide.

Thank you @Keir_Starmer for supporting our British Gas members who face the threat of fire and rehire.

It's time the company listen and get back around the table.

We don’t call for resignations lightly, but the level of failure and incompetence we’ve seen from Gavin Williamson is of a magnitude that cannot be justified or excused.

If the Prime Minister had any judgement he’d sack him.

If Gavin Williamson had any shame he’d resign.

The Conservatives have chosen to cut support for families in the middle of a pandemic by slashing Universal Credit.

The UK has had the worst recession of any major economy on Boris Johnson’s watch – now he is making families pay the price.

Quoted @Keir_Starmer

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.

They didn't even show up.

This is why the Conservatives must vote to #CancelTheCut to Universal Credit.

I've been helping at a South London foodbank, somewhere more and more families have had to turn to during this crisis.

Yet the Conservatives plan to cut Universal Credit - costing six million families £1,000 a year.

Today they can, and must, vote with Labour to #CancelTheCut.

🗳The Government have had many months to make the necessary changes to protect our democracy ahead of the May elections.

Urgent action must be taken to prevent people being forced to choose between their health and their right to vote.

Looking forward to speaking with @realLorraine at 9am this morning to talk about why we need to support families during this next phase of the pandemic.

Now it plans to cut Universal Credit, bringing 500,000 more people into poverty.

Today I call on all Conservative MPs to do the right thing and vote with Labour to #CancelTheCut to Universal Credit.

After the worst recession of any major economy, the Government should be supporting families through this crisis.

Instead it's hitting them in their pockets.

This Tory government's irresponsible decision-making has caused the worst recession of any major economy.

Right now, six million families rely on Universal Credit to get by.

Today, this government must #CancelTheCut
