iPhone : To see Evo Morales Ayma who, along with a powerful movement, has brought so much social progress forced from office by the military is appalling.

I condemn this coup against the Bolivian people and stand with them for democracy, social justice and independence. #ElMundoConEvo

iPhone : Very concerning that Bolivian President Evo Morales has been forced to resign after the head of the army demanded he leave office.

Latin America's history offers many frightening examples of what happens when the military forces out progressive presidents.

iPhone : We are all here today because we owe so much to those who came before.

And today we remember them.

Emergency funds should be released immediately to support families in need and all those affected by the flooding.

iPhone : Absolutely fantastic to be at the packed campaign launch of my friend Tracy Brabin and her bid to be re-elected as MP for Batley and Spen. Tracy has been a superb Shadow Early Years Minister and a valued member of the Shadow Education team. #VoteLabour2019 #GeneralElection2019 🌹

TweetDeck : Today the next Prime Minister came to Pudsey.

A Labour government will deal with injustice, poverty and inequality within our society.

Because that is what we stand for.

TweetDeck : Over 100 happy campaigners out in #Battersea with me today talking to residents.
We found lots of voters upset about Boris Johnsons destructive Brexit.
Battersea needs an MP who will stand up against Brexit and demand a fairer society.
