iPhone : A brilliant evening serving up dinner at Rosehill Community Centre in Oxford then speaking with hundreds of members alongside Anneliese Dodds.

There’s a real sense of hope growing that another future is possible - but we need to fight for it.

Join me:

TweetDeck : I have always been motivated by a burning desire to tackle inequality and injustice, to stand up for the powerless against the powerful. That’s my socialism. My piece in @Guardian.…

iPhone : I support these pledges and would continue to work with Britain’s Muslim communities if leader of the Labour Party.…

Twitter Web App : I’m delighted to have received SERA - Labours Environment Campaign’s nomination for the Labour leadership.

We are living through a climate emergency. If elected Labour leader, I will make tackling climate change our number one priority and hard-wired into everything we do.…

iPhone : Delighted to welcome Keir Starmer back to Tottenham Labour tonight. Hes the leadership candidate that can bring Labour’s factions together, win back the trust of the country & take our values back into government.

Im proud to vice-chair his campaign with @CarolynHarris24.

iPhone : I'm pleased to have received the support of colleagues in Parliament to make it to the next phase of the Labour leadership contest.

Another future is possible - but we have to fight for it. If you want to be a part of the campaign, join me:

iPhone : I have written to the Party asking that it makes a firm commitment to hold leadership and deputy leadership hustings in each region and nation we seek to represent.

I am inviting the other contenders in both contests to sign up to this letter.

iPhone : I’m disappointed the Party hasn’t organised hustings in the South East, East of England or Yorkshire.

Labour can win the next election, but only if we win back people’s trust across the UK.

I’ll be writing to the NEC tomorrow asking them to reconsider.…

iPhone : “Keir Starmer is the right person to lead Labour on the long road back to government. But just as importantly, he’s the right person to take his values – our values – back into government too.”…

Twitter Web App : And secondly, at the next election, I do not want a single member or activist to knock on a door and be told that a member of the public is not voting Labour because of antisemitism.

Twitter Web App : My tests as leader would be very simple: firstly, only when people who have left our party because of antisemitism feel that they can return will I be truly satisfied that we have dealt with the problem.

Twitter Web App : The Labour Party’s handling of antisemitism has been completely unacceptable. It has caused deep distress for the Jewish community, which we must all accept responsibility for and apologise.

I support the recommendations put forward by the Board of Deputies.…

iPhone : The free market economic model has failed. Trickle down didn’t happen.

We need a new economic model with moral purpose and equality at its heart.…

iPhone : Huge thanks to all of those who came to my campaign launch this afternoon.

Your energy, enthusiasm and support was inspiring.

Another future is possible - but only with your help:

iPhone : Great to speak with Keir Starmer in Oldham today when he came to meet local Labour Party members and shoppers on a walk through town. All of our leadership candidates need to take time to listen to what people in places like Oldham are saying!
