Natasha's Law is great news for allergen sufferers and a fantastic victory for Natasha's family. Tanya and Nadim are a remarkable couple and I could not be more pleased for them as they launch their foundation today. @LaperouseTanya #natashaslaw.

He has gone from playing alone, to playing in a pair; from barely knowing his partner to winning a championship with him; and all that after extensive hip surgery. That shows real grit. Good luck for Wimbledon @andy_murray

I am pleased @BootsUK has seen the error of its ways and sorted out this debacle. Turning from paper to plastic to save costs is not an acceptable way to run a business these days. And any businesses that do must be called out.

I’m not judging her prep. I find it fascinating that the Johnson campaign produce written scripts on this particular topic.

My political colleagues will be familiar with ‘lines to take’ scripts, with highlighted sentences to emphasise the important messages. Here Priti Patel has them spread all over the table, anticipating difficult questions in which she intends to give prepared answers.

This is another crucial win for Labour's gambling policy. I'm pleased @MattHancockMP recognises the over-riding case for NHS addiction clinics. Now he must adopt Labour's mandatory levy on betting companies to make them pay for the harm they cause.

Underlying all the harms, hate and fake news on social media platforms is one central, fundamental problem: that the digital market is distorted, dominated by a small number of data monopolies. He barely addresses this issue.

Nigel Farage: An Apology. I suggested he would receive a £73,000-a year pension when Britain leaves the EU. I now understand this is not the case. He will receive 2 EU pensions totalling £132,000 a year.

I apologise for any suggestion that he is anything other than a hypocrite.

The core values of the EU are: Internationalism, Solidarity, Freedom. They are British, Labour values. Our future doesn’t need to be Brexit. We can change our future. But only if Labour makes the case for it – and we must. #proudlybritishproudlyeuropean

The sight of a fifty-something man - who claims to be an educationalist - trolling and bullying a 16-year-old girl, who simply wants nations of the world to have an urgent debate about climate change, is very disturbing.

There must be a full judicial inquiry with criminal powers into Arron Banks and his chums. We cannot allow those who cheat and lie to mock and subvert our democracy (using millions from who knows where) to prevail.

Farage doesn't want people to know about his policies or finances. So it's a fair bet his notoriously thin skin won't take kindly to claims that Arron Banks funds his man of the people charade to the tune of £450k a year. The next interview should be fun.

Last week Boris Johnson announced a derisory £50m extra a year for state school spending. Today it's 200 times that on tax cuts for the richest 8%. Is he blinkered by privilege, or simply couldn't give a damn about the rest of the country?

Labour won’t defeat Nigel Farage by being mealy-mouthed and sounding as if we half agree with him. We won’t win if we sit on the fence about the most crucial issue that has faced our country for many generations.

Only by remaining in the EU can we remain the same Britain at heart that we’ve been for 1000 years. If we leave, we become less than we were and less than our children have a right to expect. The patriotic choice is to remain.
