Quite a few people asking “where’s the evidence” of antisemitism in High Peak Labour. I’m glad you asked. Let’s take a quick look, shall we? Former MP and sitting councillor Ruth George is the most noteworthy. thejc.com/news/uk-news/labou…

Last month I visited the #EastgateSheepShow & this summer I’ll be heading to shows like @WolsinghamShow, #StanhopeShow and the #Weardale Agricultural Show in Chapel Given the importance of fairs & shows across the U.K., I’ll be pushing for a debate on them in @UKParliament

So, it turns out Durham Police, far from not doing retrospective fines, have issued 100 of them No wonder @Keir_Starmer took so long over his questionnaire & took expert legal advice about completing it #Beergate #Starmer dailymail.co.uk/news/article…

I am delighted that @nadhimzahawi has announced today what is significant support for music in schools. If we could all join forces to get music back into our schools again, it will be something that will only enrich our nation. - ALW

Unlike NATO, which didn’t even bother to do contingency plans for the Baltic States because Germany thought it would be “provocative”
"Finland has been preparing for a Russian attack for decades and will offer fierce resistance if it happens," said Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief Timo Kivinen.

Tory MP Richard Holden accuses RMT of having a "desire to go on strike" with train passengers hit by more cancellations as strike talks resume today. "I want to see people get round the table on this but there must be a moderisation of the train network." @JuliaHB1 | @RicHolden

In 🇬🇧 we are right to welcome those in real need, including from 🇺🇦🇸🇾🇦🇫 But we can only do that & keep the widest public support for it by also doing all we can to destroy: illegal routes from safe countries like 🇫🇷 & the human trafficking gangs who cash-in on human misery

The rail unions need to talk, not strike. But we will continue to prepare. I'm asking the @MayorofLondon to do his bit to keep London open and moving by waiving the Congestion Charge & ULEZ and pausing non-essential roadworks on rail strike days - simple moves that will go far.
