iPhone : Loved my visit Harlow earlier this week, to meet up with Laura McAlpine #FromHarlowForHarlow whos challenging Tory Robert Halfon there. So exciting to think that, within a few weeks Laura could be in Westminster, helping to deliver the biggest shift in power in favour working class people since 1945.

iPhone : So looking forward to our #GE2019 campaign rally on Saturday & welcoming my good friend Ian Lavery to Consett. I’m certain Ian will warm the crowd up. The event takes place 1-3pm at St Patricks Church Hall, DH8 5AX. Details & free tickets here:…

iPhone : Words from John McDonnell MP: "an irreversible shift" in decision making & investment from London to the North are music to my ears, not because London doesn't suffer poverty & inequality but because we need to re-balance the economy for the sake of us all:…

iPhone : This is huge.

This is something that has never been done before.

This is a clear commitment to the forgotten towns that so many of us live in.

No more London-centric government, but a government that truly serves the entire country.


iPhone : There's a increasing whiff of proto-McCarthyism in the recent pronouncements of Boris Johnson. No intellectually serious person conflates mildly redistributive taxation with the murderous brutality of forced collectivisation in the 1930s USSR.…

iPhone : We are going to win this election. You know why? Because, firstly, there are many more of us than them; not only that, we care more than they do; because we know what it means to millions & for all those reasons, we will work harder & we’ll get it done. #GE2019 #GetSocialismDone

iPhone : We did: it was called the founding principles of the NHS, as laid out by Nye Bevan. Not only did the Tories fight him tooth & nail at the time, but have taken every opportunity to dismantle & privatise since, especially since Thatcher. It is political.

iPhone : After more drama than a Cup Final I am delighted to congratulate my good friend lan Byrne on his selection as Labour Parliamentary candidate for West Derby. Well done Ian, few will ever know what you‘ve had to withstand & overcome to get here. So proud of you. 💥✊️❤️🌹

iPhone : I've always aimed to be open about the decisions I take as an MP. Brexit’s no different. I have openly opposed a ‘no deal’. That was the position outlined in the manifesto I was elected on in 2017, but I realise it still needs explanation. Pls have a read:…

iPhone : Good luck to lan Byrne today - got to know him a bit over the last couple of years & have to say, I’ve been seriously impressed by him as an organiser & a representative of his community. Would be great to see that in Parliament.
