The Chancellor's decision to once again turn his back on the is a massive kick in the teeth for the livelihoods of 3 million people, the UK economy and for basic justice. Hundreds of MPs from all parties are united in our support for the excluded - we won't give up.

In the today, the Chancellor missed a massive opportunity to invest in cancer services to tackle the treatment backlog and save tens of thousands of lives. Our cross-party campaign won't give up fighting for cancer patients

I’m outraged that the Chancellor still refuses to accept that the Conservative Govt have over 3 million people for 10 months. These people have endured so much during this crisis & now face enormous hardship- when will he stop turning his back on those in need?

The Chancellor has delivered a real terms pay cut for teachers, carers, police officers and so many other public-sector workers today. They have been on the front-line throughout this pandemic, and so to treat them in this way is outrageously rude, ungrateful and unacceptable.

“1.5 million of those people are not majority self-employed.” This does NOT mean they’re majority “employed” !! PAYE freelancers and zero hours workers cannot access EITHER furlough OR SEISS & they do NOT make megabucks!

Our Treasury spokesperson raising the 3M people still left out of economic support. Continuing exclusion is a national scandal, never addressed even while the Tories have handed out waves of cash to politically connected companies and consultants.

No Chancellor, cutting aid to the world’s poorest is not a ‘difficult choice’ it’s an extremely easy one. Politically it will cost you nothing. It is morally repugnant, and an act of extreme political cowardice but it will shift no votes so I guess it was a no brainer for you...

Ed Davey MP 🔶🇪🇺 17h
Three weeks ago I asked the Prime Minister to support unpaid carers by increasing the Carer's Allowance by £20 a week. He didn't do so. When he's found millions to hand out to Conservative Party cronies in contracts, why can't he do a little more to help unpaid carers?

Today the Chancellor will announce the Govt is going back on its manifesto promise and cutting our overseas aid spending from 0.7% of GNI. That's roughly a £4bn cut, during a global pandemic that won't be over until the whole world has access to vaccines and treatments. Thread👇
