Mental capacity and suicide: “He has mental capacity” is not a reason for clinicians to stand back and do nothing. https://www.savinglives.blog/uncategorized/mental-capacity-and-suicide-he-has-mental-capacity-is-not...

Would be ace to have a government that cared about arts and culture industries as much as they cared about getting people into Wetherspoons and Nando’s.

They're taking the hoist out of my favourite hotel. I'm going to miss that pancake machine and London adventures.  @IHG Hotels & Resorts please don't do this!  @Steve Catlin Holiday Inn hotel plans to rip out hoist from its only accessible bathroom https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/holiday-inn-hotel-plans-to-rip-out-hoist-from-its-only-accessi... via  @Disability News DNS

So, the government are considering removing “credit” for a guilty plea in cases where offenders are “bang to rights”. Buckle up.👇🏼

It’s not all bad news, see.

In 2018, 500 refugees made the crossing from France. In June this year alone, 2000 made the crossing. Many are unaccompanied children, some forced onto unsafe vessels at gunpoint. We must create ways for people fleeing danger to reach the UK in safety. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/aug/06/refugees-tell-of-brutality-as-people-smuggling-acros...

 @James O'Brien It is the most morally bankrupt of hiding places. Off he goes, videoing the few desperate souls who make it here in search of a better life, in some pathetically needy call to his Little-Englander fanbase: whipping up outrage for ‘likes’. What a sad but dangerous little man.

If you’d sold this country most of the vilest Brexit lies, you’d be desperate to distract your victims with pictures of some poor souls in a dinghy.

The PPE scandal is not a sign of the government's "incompetence." They didn't award contracts to longstanding friends and associates in error. Its corruption, pure and simple. And this will only be the tip of the iceberg.  #PPEcorruption  #ToryCorruption

Amazing! These Polish MPs coordinated their outfits to make the pride flag at the swearing in of their homophobic president 🙌🌈

What kind of a government risks the lives of NHS staff by giving multi million pound contracts to their mates, including a govt advisor, resulting in PPE unfit for purpose?  #ToryCorruption

The government gives a £252m PPE supply contract to a firm with just £100 of capital owned by an advisor to Liz Truss without putting it out to tender. The advisor is alleged to have made millions. You're ruled by a mafia with posh voices  #PPEcorruption

There was an exquisitely beautiful interview I did w a Deaf voice hearer years ago that I’ve never felt I could do justice to. Me: earlier I’d asked if they were auditory, like real sounds or took on other forms, like you could see the voices...you suggested it was ambiguous?

Also "but eating disorders!" needs to stop being the only reason given for criticism of extreme weightloss shows and the "war on obesity". Here are some other reasons we should really be discussing:

Channel 4 News announces that Track & Trace is tracking and tracing fewer people than last month and flashes up an NHS logo with Track & Trace below it. This is how it works. This is how private firms that have failed hide behind the NHS logo so that people will blame the NHS.

This.

Personally & as someone whose work  @Mental Health Fdn is rooted in building social connectedness I would argue loneliness is very much about the absence of people & being connected. https://amp.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2020/aug/06/loneliness-cure-pill-research-scientists

If your only source of news was  @BBC News (UK), you would not know that the UK is floating in a toxic sewer of ELITE CORRUPTION, while the perpetrators sleep soundly at night as they know there is effective IMPUNITY

The work of  @Jo Maugham QC and the  @The Good Law Project in exposing  #PPEcorruption and doing something about it should be applauded by every UK citizen & taxpayer. However, it begs the question, where are the UK media & investigative journalists in holding this corruption to account?

Companies use NHS logo. Give bad service so people complain about the NHS. Government says we need to privatise. Companies remove logo. How it works. UNDER COVER OF PANDEMIC, THIS PROCESS IS ACCELERATING. OUR NHS IS BEING BLAMED FOR PRIVATE FAILURES. DON’T LET JOHNSON CON YOU.

Am I imagining this, or is Pestfix, who took £100m of taxpayer’s funds, now using taxpayer’s money to pay lawyers to try and prevent the taxpayer from finding out where their funds actually went? This is why we need an inquiry into the government’s awarding of PPE contracts.

A second wave of Covid is rising in many European countries. Given that Johnson, who has delivered the highest death toll Europe and whose response to the virus has been crap at every stage, what do people think is the chance of Britain avoiding Europe's biggest second wave?
