80 years ago today our brave airmen took to the skies to defend this country. It was these few, as Churchill said, who turned the tide of the war and defended these islands from fascism and tyranny.

Today we remember their bravery and sacrifice. #BattleOfBritain

Your final months of school have coincided with the greatest crisis our country has faced since the Second World War. Thanks to your sacrifice, we have saved hundreds of thousands of lives.

And we can’t wait to see the new world that you’re going to help us to build.

I’m delighted to see record numbers of nurses and midwives now working in our NHS as we work towards delivering 50,000 more nurses in this parliament.

Nurses have saved countless lives during the pandemic and we are so grateful for all that they do for us, and for our NHS.

I am honoured to have been nominated by @BorisJohnson to be a candidate to lead the @wto . I believe that if we want to keep the WTO relevant and vibrant our task is clear: Update. Strengthen and Reform. We must ensure that global trade works for everyone.

To support restaurants and the people who work in them we’re saying ‘Eat Out to Help Out’.

So for the month of August we will give you a 50% reduction, up to £10 per head, on sit-down meals and non-alcoholic drinks Monday-Wednesday. #PlanForJobs

We're reducing VAT to 5% for goods and services supplied by the tourism and hospitality sectors.

This is a £4bn catalyst benefiting over 150,000 businesses, and consumers everywhere - all helping to protect 2.4 million jobs. #PlanForJobs

1/ I have decided today to cut stamp duty.

Right now, there is no stamp duty on transactions below £125,000 (or £300,000 for first-time buyers). I am increasing the threshold to £500,000. #PlanForJobs

1/ We’re funding £2bn of Green Home Grants helping to unlock work for thousands of plumbers, builders and tradespeople.

Homeowners will receive vouchers to pay for at least two-thirds of green improvements such as loft, wall and floor insulation. #PlanForJobs

For the next six months we’ll pay businesses to hire young apprentices, with a payment of £2,000.

We’re also introducing a brand-new bonus to hire apprentices aged 25 and over, with a payment of £1,500. #PlanForJobs

1/ We’re launching a new programme to give hundreds of thousands of young people the best possible chance of getting on and getting a job.

I’m making available an initial £2 billion and there will be no cap on the number of places available. #PlanForJobs

We want to reward employers who successfully bring staff back from furlough.

If you bring back someone who was furloughed - and continuously employ them through to January we'll pay you a Job Retention Bonus of £1,000 per person. #PlanForJobs

“Yesterday I visited the site of a new @SiemensMobility factory in Goole that will make fantastic new trains for the Piccadilly line as part of our plans to build, build, build to take the whole country forward.” – PM @BorisJohnson

No one who was in London on 7 July 2005 will ever forget what they experienced that day.

As we remember those who were lost and pledge once again to support those who survived, our message is as clear and simple as it was 15 years ago.

We are not afraid.

Over the weekend I welcomed staff from St Thomas’ hospital who looked after me whilst I had coronavirus at Downing Street.

It was wonderful to celebrate the NHS’s 72nd birthday with some of those who have done so much in the fight against the virus.

We’ve announced a £1.57 billion package to support our brilliant theatre and creative sectors.

There will have to be some creativity in making our theatres COVID-19 Secure, but we can do it and we’re working very hard with the sector to get it done.

Today we remember all those who lost their lives in the London bombings, 15 years ago.

My heart goes out to all those who were there that day, living still with the memory of those horrific events, and all those grieving loved ones.

Today I visited the site of a new factory in East Yorkshire which will be building tube trains for the London Underground. This project will create over 2,000 jobs and is just one example of how we're using infrastructure, technology and education to unite & level up our country.
