Twitter Web App : When I was elected to Parliament, I discovered that halal and kosher meals weren't served anywhere on the estate.

Now, following efforts from Charlotte Nichols MP and me, a trial of halal and kosher food has begun.

A little step in making politics more accessible πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ€

Twitter Media Studio : β€œWe have to expand our imaginations to a world where we don’t treat people or our living planet as expendable'


Surrounded by colleagues in support, I introduced the in Parliament to transform our economy & society, stay within 1.5C, restore nature & reverse inequality

Twitter Web App : Today I joined colleagues to launch the Green New Deal Bill, a programme of economic transformation to avert climate catastrophe & tackle social injustice.

It's a plan for rapid decarbonisation, creating millions of good jobs & taxing the super-rich. I am proud to co-sponsor it.

Twitter Web App : I'm thrilled that Jamal has been reunited with his family in the UK, but his younger brother has been denied resettlement. He's still living in fear in Afghanistan.

The government must do all it can to provide safe passage to all those needing refuge.

Twitter for iPhone : It’s been an incredibly difficult 24 hours or so, but it was a joy to join Sikh & Hindu communities in Coventry for Diwali & Bandi Chhor Divas celebrations πŸͺ”

These festivals represent the triumph of light over darkness & hope over fear - a message needed now more than ever ✨

Twitter for iPhone : It's hard to find the words. David Amess was killed while holding a constituency surgery, just doing his job. It's truly horrific.

My thoughts and prayers are with David's loved ones on this devastating day for them, and for our democracy.

Twitter for iPhone : I’m horrified by reports that David Amess has been attacked at his constituency surgery.

My thoughts are with David, his family and friends and his staff team. Praying that he recovers quickly from his injuries.

Twitter Web App : My heart breaks for Henok and his family. Having fled persecution in Eritrea, he arrived in Britain last year. But this summer, it's suspected he died by suicide.

We owe those seeking asylum love and compassion, not the cruelty of the hostile environment.

Twitter for iPhone : In the past two years, there has been a sickening 50% increase in reported attacks against people of East & South East Asian descent in Britain.

This is such an important piece by my friend Sarah Owen MP on the need to defeat anti-Asian racism & misogyny.

Twitter for iPhone : New polling shows more than half of the British public want to see a shorter working week, with fewer days & hours.

Introducing a 3 day weekend with no loss of pay is common sense. It’s popular & would mean more freedom for ordinary people whose lives are dominated by work.
