I'm very sorry to see @jessphillips  drop out of the contest - we need to broaden our debate, not narrow it, and force the two favourites to prove they're up to the fight by pitting them against some real strength. Jess is a sad loss in that effort, but we will keep going.

My statement on the ‘peace plan’ announced yesterday by Trump: an utter abomination, which has nothing to do with enabling a two-state solution, but everything to do with two corrupt leaders trying to get each other re-elected. I'll seek to raise this in the House tomorrow.

ICYMI: Great to chat with @StylistMagazine  last weekend about the social care crisis, the gender pay gap and why @BorisJohnson  has a serious women problem - especially with me! #FightingBackTogether 

We have to look and sound like the communities we serve. We must never be complacent with diversity in our Local Councils. We must keep pushing until every Labour Council looks like the people it represents. #LabLocal20  #FightingBackTogether 

In 2005 we were told it was impossible for the UN Security Council to refer Sudan to the ICC as China would veto. They didn't and now we have this great news. Remember that when they say referring Myanmar's Generals over the Rohingya can't be done.

It's a shame to miss out on the rest of the race, but good luck to the three superb remaining candidates. Huge thanks to members from all corners of the UK who supported me, and to my brilliant campaign team. It wasn't to be, but we gave it everything. My full statement is here.
