Labour Member of Parliament for Nottingham East, proud to represent my home city • UK’s youngest MP • she/her ?️?
No one is being deported to Rwanda tonight! This government will try again and our movement will stop them again. We cannot rest until all deportation flights are stopped, all the detention centres are closed, all the barbed wire is torn down.
This morning I joined the @RMTunion picket line at Victoria. Workers told me that many are paid £21K or less, some are on Universal Credit and some have to work 18 Sundays a year for free. All workers deserve decent pay and conditions. Support the strikes.
Thank you to Labour members, trade unions and affiliated organisations in Nottingham East for unanimously reselecting me as your candidate for the next general election. It's the honour of my life to serve my home city, and I promise to keep amplifying your voices in Parliament.
Nearly half of Kwasi Kwarteng’s #MiniBudget tax cuts will go to the richest 5%. If you’re paid £1 million a year, congratulations: you’ll be £55,220 better off. If you’re on £20,000, you’ll save just £157 - 6% of the average energy bill.
France: fully nationalising its biggest energy supplier. Spain: increasing taxes on the super-rich. EU: imposing a windfall tax on the huge profits of energy companies. The UK government’s response to the cost of living crisis: cutting taxes for the 1%.
Next month, MPs get a £2,200 pay rise to £84,144 while the country gets a rise in national insurance, energy bills & council tax. We’re already in the top 5% of earners. When I was elected, I pledged to take home £35k and donate the rest to local causes. That won't be changing.
The BJP (Modi’s governing party) is using JCB diggers to bulldoze the homes and shops of Muslims. Boris Johnson posed with JCB diggers on his recent visit to India, but his minister wouldn't say whether he even raised these demolitions with Modi.
If you thought the Policing Bill was bad before, that was nothing compared to the latest version. Priti Patel has quietly added further measures to effectively criminalise protest. These laws belong in a dictatorship, not a democracy. Some of the worst new powers 👇🏽 1/5
You know what would’ve been really great for school kids right now? Universal free broadband.
Matt Hancock didn't declare that his sister’s company was a potential NHS supplier. His local pub landlord got a government contract. Greensill’s app was used by the NHS after they had drinks together. He acted unlawfully by not publishing contracts. Why is he still in a job?
