If a Tory MP thinks a £90k salary leaves him counting the pennies, what does he imagine the majority of us are living on in the UK where the average salary is under £30k? The entitlement! No wonder these out-of-touch bastards get policy so wrong. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/tory-minister-says-90000-salary-6085266.amp?__twitter_impressi...

I've just signed the open letter calling on  @Priti Patel to ensure the UK prioritises saving lives - rather than punishing refugees and migrants risking their lives to get to the UK by boat. Will you add your name? https://speakout.38degrees.org.uk/campaigns/open-letter-priti-patel-migrants?utm_campaign=5X1QMrZS4D...

Health Minister Edward Argar's last job before becoming an MP was as Serco's Head of Public Affairs. He really wants us to believe this was a minor role - "not a management or director position - at all". Serco contact tracing contract nothing to do with him - at all.

Was shocked when I realised only England is outsourcing track and trace - the rest of us are using health boards and councils. It's really hard not to think the English system simply isn't designed to work, its about funneling cash to the private sector.

While Parliament is in recess and Patel is creating a moral panic about a handful of migrants here's the government quietly proceeding to eliminate judicial review https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-launches-independent-panel-to-look-at-judicial-review

 @Johnny C  @Jessica Simor QC They won’t. This is a US company. There will be a price war with Silver Spoon, British company, who use British grown sugar beet. Please do your research. The sugar bit of Tate & Lyle was sold to the US years ago.

If the government hadn’t squandered the first lockdown, and failed to test, test, test, we may well have averted this https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/aug/09/uk-to-fall-into-deepest-slump-on-record-with-worst-...

Why is the govt incapable of providing tests, protective clothing etc for NHS staff? Because the NHS is no longer a coherent body capable of taking direction - private contracts & divisions get in way. The govt has created a Frankenstein's monster. WE MUST RE-NATIONALISE OUR NHS

 @LBC  @Clive Bull "International law does not require asylum seekers to claim asylum in first safe country. This principle has been recognised in UK case law, and the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999 provides a defence against prosecuting refugees for entering UK illegally". https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/insights/migrants-crossing-the-english-channel/
