I'm proud that we've just finalised our manifesto and I can't wait to publish it next week. This General Election is a once in a generation chance for real change in our society for the many, not the few. 🌹

So we had our first threat today as a result of this lie . According to an anonymous voicemail I'm about to be arrested and charged. Some of my volunteers are afraid for my safety. Please stop this now.

I'm not usually into arguing with people on Twitter. But this untrue. In 2014 Umunna said free movement should be changed, as there was 'too much' 'low-skill' immigration from the EU. In 2016, he accused immigrants of leading 'parallel lives', which is a core anti-immigrant myth

This is the most thorough & effective defence of I’ve seen against the charge of antisemitism (which he certainly doesn’t diminish) from an Economist (Prof Simon Wren-Lewis) who is “no Corbyn fan, & actively campaigned against him in 2016”

Zarah’s response is a model for us all - deleting what was wrong years ago. None of us are immune from prejudice. The answer’s reflection, self-education, learning from other perspectives. Too many are quick to criticise while failing to examine themselves & their own parties

In what kind of democracy should Judges be able to ban a strike voted for by 97% of the workforce in a 75% turnout. It demonstrates just how important it is for the next Labour to repeal anti-union laws. We need justice in the workplace! Solidarity with the CWU!

So , can you explain why you retweeted in support of a man who made a joke about Jewish people wearing Star of David armbands, who alluded to Jewish blood libel about Israelis stealing Arab babies, who says homosexuality is a sin, and says Islam’s a problem in the UK?

It’s a while since I felt moved to agree with Dan but he is spot on here. You cannot claim to be committed to the defence of Britain when you refuse even to admit when our democracy is under attack

The Liberal “Democrats”, in promising to stop Brexit by revoking Article 50, paved the way for the far right Johnson-Farage alliance. Only Labour can re-unite the UK & create a vibrant sustainable economy with a public vote on the choice between a sensible Brexit deal & Remain

Really excellent wide-ranging statement from on how to fight antisemitism, including a clear statement of support for the same right of self-determination for Jews as other people alongside the struggle for Palestinian freedom & independence

The decision by to stand aside for Lib Dems in Labour-Tory marginals like Wimbledon, Portsmouth S & Warrington S represents an appalling downgrading of the climate emergency. Only a transformative Corbyn government’s Green New Deal can begin to meet that challenge

Solidarity with the CWU! The continuous resorting to the courts by employers even in the face of such overwhelming votes in strike ballots shows the need for repeal of anti-union laws

Today is 100 years since the birth of Czech refugee Vladimir Derer, founder & strategist of the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy, without whom would not be the democratic socialist mass party it is today & nor would a transformative Corbyn-led Government be possible
