This is a deeply worrying time for workers at Liberty Steel. The Government must look at all the options on the table to protect these jobs and our steel industry. They must do whatever it takes.

We must protect our vital steelmaking industry and the jobs it provides.

The Government must have a Plan B for Liberty Steel to protect thousands of jobs and our steelmaking capacity, which is vital for our communities and our national security. All options should be on the table, including public ownership.

The green transition will only command popular support—and will only deserve to do so—if it is fair. This is a challenge that requires an activist government: not stepping back, but stepping up. Me in @prospect_uk 

@mtpennycook  absolutely right about the scale of ambition and leadership government must show for COP26.

Saddened to hear of the death of Prince Philip, who lived a life of public service. My thoughts and condolences are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family.

A green stimulus could help deliver on the essential objective of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees but while the government calls on others to act, it is failing to do so here at home. My question earlier:

As COP26 hosts, there is rightly scrutiny of our domestic action and the international community is rightly concerned. It's time to end the uncoordinated dad dancing on climate.


Nope it’s because nobody wanted you to come. And you got the message.

What incompetence. What failure of governance. Boris Johnson can't blame Theresa May, he can't blame John Major, he can't blame judges, he can't blame civil servants, he can't sack the Cabinet Secretary again. There's only one person responsible - him. Me in the Commons today:

What an absolutely ludicrous, incompetent, absurd, make it up as you go along, couldn’t run a piss up in a brewery bunch of jokers there are running the government at the most critical time in a generation for the country.

We know Theresa May can't now negotiate Brexit for Britain because she told us losing majority would destroy her authority---and it has.

Spreading lies about your own country: sad. Spreading lies about others: sadder. What an absolute moron.

Breaking: I will shortly be announced as editor of Heat magazine....

And mine for people who travel thousands of miles to endorse a groper of young girls who also happens to be a racist homophobe. Time for a period of silence.
