Twitter Web App : The Pandora Papers unveiled the very worst tax avoidance. And it's Tory voters that are most fed up of this tax dodging.

Boris Johnson must listen to his voters. Put a stop to this behaviour. Big companies & rich individuals must pay their fair share.

Twitter Web App : Social media companies are profiting from hatred and the Govt has done diddly squat to stop them.

We need tough punishments for the social media execs who turn a blind eye to this abuse. The PM must follow through on his promise & ensure this is part of the Online Safety Bill.

Twitter Web App : Discourse in our politics, as in our society, has become increasingly divided and toxic. As MPs, it is our duty to change that discourse for the better.

We have far more in common than that which divides us.

Twitter Web App : The global tax reform deal is a big step in the right direction. But there's still a long way to go until the biggest companies truly pay their fair share & all countries get to reap the benefits.

Well said Anna Turley 💙.

Twitter Web App : Our new analysis shows 8/10 big government contractors have links with tax havens - and that number has gone up under Boris Johnson.

The Govt are turning a blind eye when they should be taking a lead in making large multinationals pay their fair share.

Twitter Web App : Energy prices rocketing. Chemical plants at risk of closure. Families struggling. Yet Government Ministers are simply bickering instead of getting to grips with this mess.

Twitter Web App : The Govt has shown a total disregard for leaseholders & the horrors they face under the fire safety scandal.

Gove promising to 'look at' cutting insurance costs is by no means enough. We need concrete action. And leaseholders shouldn't pay a penny for this crisis.

Twitter Web App : Ten UK civil society groups are calling on the UK to support the G-24 emerging economies in their request that the OECD’s forthcoming global tax deal will be improved, to the benefit of both developed and developing world countries.
