Passionate European, Irish living in Oxford. Hoping to get my life back when the U.K. decides to rejoin the EU.

Striding into the light, smiling, arm in arm.

It is a strange thing that John Lewis & John Hume would both pass in such a short space of time.

Civil Rights in the North was inspired by Civil Rights in the US.

In 2013, Lewis and Hume linked arms as they crossed the Peace Bridge - huge mutual respect

Can anyone explain to me how a Russian can sit in the House of Lords yet John Bercow and Dominic Greave are deemed unworthy?

It beggars belief that the Tory MP will not be suspended while he is investigated for rape. There is no clearer signal that this government doesn’t care what anyone else thinks, and doesn’t give a damn about women.

A great man. May he rest in peace.

John Hume has died. Ireland, all of us, should bow our heads in respect & thanks. What an extraordinary man, peacemaker, politican, leader, civil rights campaigner, family man, Derryman, inspiration. May he rest peacefully & his legacy live on. Sincere sympathy with Pat & family.

Arrogant and offensive. Can you imagine having to work with these truth twisters?

That a Russian billionaire oligarch and son of a former KGB agent would receive a peerage instead of the former Speaker of the House of Commons speaks volumes about just how screwed up the UK now is.

I retweeted this y’day but retweeting it again today. The peerage list is an inflection point. The old rules are dead. Decency, shame, accountability. We the press, public & parliament need to take serious stock. This is a Trumpian moment. Johnson has changed politics. So must we

The PM nominating Claire Fox-who was a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party that defended the 1993 Warrington IRA bombings at the time & has not even given a full public apology-for a seat in the Lords shows terrible judgment and crass insensitivity to the victims.

It offends me too.

We all do and say things when young that we later regret.  @Claire Fox never apologised for defending the IRA bombing of Warrington which took the life of my son Tim and Johnathan Ball. Now she is offered a Peerage. This offends me and many others deeply

Brilliant!

Holy shit. 🤣

Holy shit. 🤣

An IRA apologist with a history of defending men who download images of child sex abuse is being sent to the House of Lords by a Tory PM. All while supposedly supporting the abolition of the House of Lords. Tell me again how 'cancel culture' has attacked your freedom of speech...

If it’s time to squeeze the brake because infections are rising and it isn’t safe enough to go ice skating or bowling or have your friends over in the north how is it still safe to go back to work if you’ve been shielding?

I cannot say how much I despise this list of crony peers. Utterly, utterly corrupt. We are a banana republic without even being a republic.

Just reading about a failed state where the leader appointed his own brother, a man who gave £2m to his party, a Russian billionaire, a cricketer and a whole gang of supporters of a policy that destroyed the country from within to be lawmakers and sorry that’s us.

Imagine someone told you at 10pm on Christmas Eve you couldn’t go round to you family tomorrow to celebrate Christmas when you’d made plans, tons of food, bought presents etc. Middle England would be in uproar.

The last bastion of British exceptionalism falls today. Quarantine advice finally changes from 7 to 10 days. Turns out our virus *is* the same as other nationalities' virus. Who knew?

⚠️ Dominic Cummings is desperately trying to bury this video! 

👉 It would be pity, then, if it were to be seen by millions of proud working Brits...

If Tommy Robinson is fleeing the United Kingdom due to fears for his and his familiy’s safety, why has he not gone straight to the nearest safe country he could?

God I love this country

God I love this country

Support for Brexit has collapsed. Deal ‘negotiations’ are close to collapse. There’s a sodding great message staring the government in the face. PULL THE PLUG ON BREXIT. The country doesn’t want Brexit, it certainly doesn’t need it. Stay in the SM & CU! Reform, Rejoin.

Riddle me this: if a Prime Minister admits he “didn’t understand the virus in the way that we would have liked in the first few weeks and months”. Yet he also missed 5 COBRA meetings, 8 conference calls with EU leaders & didn't lockdown when SAGE advised. What does that make him?

‘Normal for healthcare’ it NOT NORMAL The following is not ‘normal’: - paying to park at work - paying for annual registration to work - working beyond full time (>36.5h/week) - working 14 out of 16 days - working nights/weekends  #MedTwitter  #FiY1

This should be spread widely. Gove should be held to account.

(There is frankly never not a good moment to re-enjoy  @Michael Gove giving by some margin the worst political speech of the last thirty years, at least.)

Not "all" of them. I'm only on for three hours a day...

James O'Brien lists all the lies the government has told on Brexit.

The decision to leave the European Union can no longer be regarded as valid or legitimate we must now delay our departure & hold a fresh referendum!
