PM's decided to meet opposition MPs after requesting dangerously short Article 50 extension

I'll tell her to stop threatening us with No Deal disaster we already rejected

She must withdraw her letter & instead ask for more time to break parliamentary gridlock with #PeoplesVote

Minister calls me Eeyore @CommonsEAC for telling inconvenient truth that IPCC says we've got 11 years to avoid climate catastrophe.

His approach to climate targets is unforgivably complacent.

The planet won't let us off if we "try" to meet targets. If we fail, we face disaster.

This Government wants you to think it's leading the world on climate change.

But its archaic planning law has just green-lighted a new coal mine.

A coal mine. In Britain. In 2019.

This should not be allowed to happen.

Congrats @alexsobel on securing massively important debate on catastrophic decline in insect populations

Fact that government is set to miss 14 out of the 19 targets set out in its report to the Biodiversity Convention is hugely worrying #insectageddon

Young people on #climatestrike are telling it like it is and demanding the systemic change we urgently need.

They deserve a voice – not just on the streets, but over the decisions that will shape their lives.

Extending Article 50 by just 3 months puts us in dangerous territory.

There's a reason No Deal-supporting extreme Brexiteers want to keep time short.

3 more months of blackmail won't make May's deal acceptable to MPs. We need time to give the public a say with a #PeoplesVote

Last week I asked PM why she expected MPs to change their minds, but won't let public change theirs

She said: "So you'd have another referendum & there's a different result & then everybody says 'let's have a third one'?"

My thanks to Mr Speaker for exposing her hypocrisy today

Bercow says the Government cannot hold vote after vote on a #Brexit deal already rejected twice by MPs.

It's only right that the public now have their say with #PeoplesVote.

If they too reject it, we must remain in the EU and heal our divided communities.

The BBC asked me if Trump's actions can be explained by a lack of experience.
No, it's because he's a racist bigot. #StandUpToTrump

Unforgivable that 610 MPs skipped yesterday's debate on climate change.

Young people on #schoolstrike4climate are showing leadership, while truant politicians shirk responsibility.

If your MP missed it, tell them why we urgently need a #GreenNewDeal to secure our futures:

Trees: £60m

Cars: £9bn

Roads: £30bn

Mentions of climate change: 0

This was a truly disastrous budget for the planet.

After the IPCC climate report, not even a single word on #climate

Our children won’t forgive us

“Let them go to the chippy instead” - DUP MPs muttering behind me when @IBlackfordSNPMP mentioned food prices rising after No Deal#Brexit .

It won't be MPs who have to cope with worst impacts of No Deal.@duponline should be ashamed of their disregard for people they represent.

Just come out of Downing St after robust discussion with PM.

I urged her to take no deal off the table & stop blackmailing MPs.

I raised rights of 3 million & pressed hard on a #PeoplesVote

But sadly these talks are coming far too late & no sign PM is willing to compromise

Today Tony Blair lectures us about “socially liberal, progressive politics”

Yesterday he confirmed he received up to $12m from Saudi Arabia - which beheads people and is responsible for the slaughter of thousands in Yemen.

The gall is breathtaking ...
