Land of thieving Tories, behaving despicably How do we condemn you, who live shamelessly? Deeper still and deeper, does thy greed beget God who sees the mansions, grant us charity yet God who sees the scamming, grant us honesty yet @BorisJohnson @davenellist #TUSC #Budget2021

So if women can replace good male tv fictional characters who else can they replace, maybe in real life? A Conservative MP with a scripted argument, against feminism? Not an off piste Boris moment…@TUSCoalition
"Every male character or good role model must have a female replacement... and it's not just James Bond" Tory MP Nick Fletcher says men are left with the Krays and Tommy Shelby and asks "is it any wonder we are seeing so many young men committing crime?" bbc.in/3cL8ve6

📣 A #JustTransition is possible = investing in renewable energy, public transport & restoring ecosystems = 1.4-3.7x more jobs than the fossil fuels or road construction. #COP26 #ClimateAction

Hi @Asda, We visited your #TraffordPark store today and unfortunately, campaigners were met with aggression and hostility. We only want to make you and your customers aware of @weetabix #FireandRehire plans. #Boycott #Cheetabix

“The road traffic collisions didn’t stop, the house fires didn’t stop, but so much of the fire service resources were taken up” Firefighters need more resources in the face of climate change. Part of the FBU’s Climate Emergency video series, for COP26.

Encouraging us to SAVE the NHS by being vaccinated, is an important part of the job for the well paid PM. SAVING THE NHS from the TORIES, persistent threat of privatisation, is an essential voluntary activity for the overworked and underpaid staff and supporters of the NHS.
In the only interview the PM has agreed to give today, eight times he was asked on issues of sleaze, and eight times he responded by refusing to apologise, saying “we need to get this right” and trying to filibuster the interview, because he is “focussed on booster jabs”. ~AA

Brilliant debates today covering our anti-racism work and political strategy. Tomorrow it’s on to New Deal for Workers and Recruitment and Organising. See you all tomorrow 👋 #CWUandProud
CWU Conference has just carried a motion which sets a new political strategy for the union. In short - less money and support to Westminster Labour. More to Labour MPs, Mayors, Councillors and candidates who have our members backs.
