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

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 web site  #FixYourBikeVoucherScheme doesn’t work. Free school meals didn’t work Testing didn’t work Quarantine doesn’t work Track and trace doesn’t work Just what part of Johnson’s calamitous handling of this crisis has worked?  #ToryShambles  #BorisJohnson

Another shambles. Website overloaded, blank error messages, multiple issues in Chrome and now it's been taken down for repair.  #FixYourBikeVoucherScheme  #pissupinabrewery

There are lots of independents on it Charlie, inc. Cock Inn on old A26 (and the scheme doesn't start till next week).

 #FBI  #Counterintelligence Jun 4, 2020: Thread Repost  #UncleBlazer REVELATION THREAD: How a small group of brave patriots saved democracy This is the story of the FBI counterintelligence investigation, how it was protected and completed, and how it doomed Donald J. Trump.

10 cabinet ministers have taken Russian money. The real reason Johnson stopped the report being published and tried to impose his own committee chair. Democracy undermined with willing compliance of Johnson because his government are on the Kremlin’s payroll.  #RussianReport

Cummings pulling the strings on #RussiaReport. Conservative Party taking Russian money. Number 10 suppressing the report. Johnson "forgetting" his first duty is security of the British people. Prime Minister must investigate Kremlin's role in undermining our democracy.

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

We laugh at Trump when he says “if we don’t test for COVID then we won’t discover any new cases” but that’s exactly our own government’s position on Russian interference in our democracy.

'Boris Johnson, your specialist subject is the intelligence & security committee's report into Russian interference. You have one minute & my voice speeds up now' 

Superb from @rorybremner @lisemayer & @allthecitizens

And there it is. Having whined (misleadingly) that Parliament did not get a vote on free trade agreements negotiated by the EU, John Redwood just voted against Parliament getting a vote on FTAs negotiated by the *UK government*: 

Contemptible hypocrisy.

This is where we're heading. "Unlike the former masters of the industrial age, they have little use for the labor of middle and working-class people—they need only their data...the new generation will be relegated largely to the status of rental serfs." https://quillette.com/2019/06/19/what-do-the-oligarchs-have-in-mind-for-us/

Absolutely fascinating. Fast fwd past the audio issues at the beginning... Ruskies up to their old tricks again. :-)
