This is the reality of 9 years of savage welfare cuts, a disastrous rollout of Universal Credit and Tories turning a blind eye to those in need Low-income families can’t afford another Tory Govt. Nor can the rest of us @TrussellTrust 

Failure to provide housing for all is a national scandal Our #GreenNewDeal  would end right to buy, restore welfare payments & build 100,000 social homes/year to high standard, providing warm homes and tackling #ClimateEmergency  My piece in @brightonargus

“Give me a world I can grow up in” Massive respect to @DailyMirror  for front page today It pulls no punches - if we want a liveable planet for our kids, we need to act now That’s why in UK this must be the #ClimateElection  Every Green vote sends message: we want action now

Boris Johnson: we're going to do extraordinary things on the environment Reality: off track to meet targets on ❌Air pollution ❌Climate change ❌Overfishing ❌Waste ❌Tree planting ❌Biodiversity ❌Water You can't trust a word this Government says.

The flooding in South Yorkshire is a reminder why the #ClimateEmergency  has to be at the centre of this election We need decisive climate action within months, not rhetoric and photo ops That's why this is the #ClimateElection  My piece in @MetroUK 

Proud and honoured to be part of this wonderful book, published today A moving testimony to our planet and what we must do to protect it Looking forward to talking about it this weekend @FstoneBookFest  #LetterstotheEarth

Of many untruths from @BorisJohnson  on #Marr  just now, the most egregious was repetition of the lie that leaving on 31st October means “we can get #Brexit  done”. If Brexit happens that will be just the start of 10 years of trade negotiation uncertainties, with poor hit hardest

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 

Ah, just found the trapdoor to No Deal. Clause 30 - if the Government doesn’t propose an extension to the transition, MPs have no say, & therefore if negotiations on future relationship unfinished by end of December next year, we’re out - it’s #NoDeal

Around 100,000 Tory party members have inflicted on us a prime minister with a record of bigotry, racism, lying and incompetence #BorisJohnson  This is not democracy This is #NotInOurName 

MPs had more time to debate the Wild Animals in Circuses Act (affecting 19 animals) than they will to decide the future of 65 million people 🐪👩‍👩‍👧‍👦🦓 It’s hard to think of anything which better illustrates this Govt’s contempt for people, Parliament & democracy #Brexit 

Just urged the Prime Ministers to give 16/17 year olds a vote on June 8th. @AngusRobertson  agreed. RT if you do too.

Absolutely beggars belief In what world does it make sense - having declared a #ClimateEmergency  - to make measures to address the emergency more expensive? VAT on solar-battery systems to rise from 5% to 20%, while tax on coal will stay at lower rate

The more you look into PM deal, the worse it is It trashes environment, dumps workers’ rights & stokes tension in NI. And when transition ends in Dec 2020, likely no trade agreement agreed & hard right will get their dream of crash out No Deal Brexit I’ll be voting against
