1. Orwell’s 1984 opens with Winston Smith writing in his diary about a film he’s seen. “One very good one of a ship full of refugees being bombed somewhere in the Med. Audience much amused”.

I’ve seen it all now. A group of Tory MPs write to a Tory Health Secretary trying to blame me for a decision which their own Tory Government made. So self-serving to politicise a serious public health issue like this. Not sure it merits a response but I will send one later.

Why do boundaries matter? In Westminster they often decide who wins. As the ward boundaries move, the reds win control of our fictional town council, then the blues win it, even though nobody changes their vote. We want to change this, join us here:

They're basically using the profits they've made on public sector PPE contracts to pay lawyers to try and fend off scrutiny of those same public sector PPE contracts. 2/2

Andrew Mills. He’s an advisor to the Board of Trade but you’re not allowed to know that any more. After we started talking about him the Board of Trade stopped publishing its members.

Imagine if you signed a massive contract in your job, having dismissed all calls from colleagues who wanted to examine it more closely. Then, nine months later, you start whining about having missed crucial stuff in the ‘fine print’. Your feet wouldn’t touch the ground.

Kate Hoey has blocked me so she won’t see this, but I must say the elevation of her, Claire Fox and Evgeny Lebedev to the House of Lord is probably the most undemocatic and most corrupt moment in Britain’s history for two hundred years

LIE: Trump says that—despite growing up in the "church" of Norman Vincent Beale's now-infamous philosophy of "positive thinking"—he's equally committed to always seeing the downside of a scenario. TRUTH: Trump aides' books confirm he won't hear bad news—and it endangers America.

Want proof Iain Duncan Smith is a liar who's betrayed the UK?

Knowing that people were desperate for an end to the Brexit chaos, he ran his election on a promise that his Withdrawal Agreement meant an ''oven-ready deal''.

He's now rejecting it, throwing us back into the chaos.

Look serfs,you all have to die sooner, probably not later and despite what you think you're all living good, maybe even great lives, thanks to ME making Mercia great again. Better than THE LOSER WELSH AT ANY RATE. You can't expect us to bankrupt the kingdom just to save YOU. FACT

This is extraordinary. And an extraordinary catastrophe. Johns Hopkins have calculated the highest COVID-19 mortality rates across the world in the most affected countries. The UK comes out top (led by England no doubt) HR @StefSimanowitz

My old community comprehensive school was a surprising flower bed. I was in a form with Martin and Fletcher from Depeche. My good mate and Cure member Perry was in my year. Then came Mark Francois... though I can’t imagine which part of our Council Estate he hailed from.
