Sorry, but ‘clapping for Boris’ is propaganda, not humanity or compassion. He most likely caught it through his own arrogance - ignoring the medical advice he gave to others. To put him on the same level as NHS workers treating patients, w/out PPE - is grossly disrespectful

@mryddin786 @soniasodha The tories have sold way more gold than Gordon brown ever did. They flogged off shitloads of gold to fudge the figures to make the economy look better that is really is. Peddling this myth about Gordon brown just makes you look clueless

If you're wondering why we still need the local media, here's a little example. I met a nurse today who told me NHS staff were being fined hundreds of pounds in parking charges and asked if I would do a story. I did - and all the fees have been immediately cancelled

You are satisfied with too little. The average worker with a wage that will keep body and soul together is content, and he is told that he is blessed to be content. I am doing what little I can to incite him to discontent. Intelligent discontent is the torchbearer of civilization

 @Owen Jones🌹 Spot on. The last point is so important. The oligarch class has beaten down the working class so much that too many working people have internalized that they don’t deserve better, that this is as good as it gets.

The time to go's long overdue

 @Tom Munday If you’re northern or BAME and a centrist, graduating from a Russell Group uni is a triumph for British meritocracy and diversity. If you’re northern or BAME and on the left, graduating from a Russell Group uni is evidence of tokenism and the dumbing down of culture.

 @Bad Santa We can say that of so many corporate businesses. They need constant bailouts from Govt. Socialism for the 1% cronies.

 @Wrighty  @simon maginn Only when the left do it. In the same way that racism is okay when it's "listening to the voters' legitimate concerns on immigration."

 @Peter Holt  @John McDonnell MP Even though the media establishment are mostly doing their best to hide it, it is McDonnell who won the economic argument.

Wow, Financial Times editorial today. 'Radical reforms — reversing the policy direction of the last four decades — will need to be put on the table. (...) Policies until recently considered eccentric, such as basic income and wealth taxes, will have to be in the mix.'

“How many cornflakes does 6.8 pence buy you Karen?”

It’s still the best political interview of the past 5 years. Take a bow @BarryGardiner

 @Aaron Bastani  @Wayne Rooney  @Matt Hancock .Working class lads for the most part, dedicate their lives to a sport that for some of them they earn a great deal of money for 10 yrs or so, meantime the huge wealth & earnings of the financiers, bankers etc, often inherited is ignored. Wonder why that is eh ?

. @WayneRooney has despatched @MattHancock and his government’s appalling conduct in 3 paragraphs.

When we come through this crisis, & we shall, the value of work must be completely re-evaluated. The country must never forget the courageous men & women who stood on the front line & put themselves in harms way to save us nor those who sat back & profited from its misery

 @Jill Braund At 64 we are too young to retire but but too old for a respirator! This Government stinks - eugenics by the back door !

At this time of greatest need, Home Secretary Patel, Leader of the house Mogg, Foreign Secretary Raab are all AWOL. Brexit champions like Francois, Cash and others have fled the field of battle. Lest we forget.

 @Jonathan Lis He won by pitching to the left and promising to honour the policy platform of 2017 and 2019. It is completely reasonable to hold him to this.

 @Neil Henderson The disintegration & bankruptcy of mainstream media and news papers (if it occurs) might actually be very positive for our society, for it has turned for most part into a disinformation propaganda machine that routinely misrepresents facts while serving narrow economic interests.

This could be perhaps one of the best things to restore freedom and fairness to our country.

The newspaper industry is in massive trouble. Ad spend has plummeted and many journalists are being ‘furloughed’ or just fired. Reporting is vital in our society - arguably now more than ever. If you’re passing a shop on your walk today, please #buyapaper

History will be kinder to Corbyn than to Thatcher and Blair. The former Daily Telegraph columnist says that the cardinal rule of British politics is that 'radicals and visionaries lose the present but win the future'. Thoughtful piece from  @Peter Oborne https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/stepping-down-labour-leader-corbyn-can-hold-his-head-high

This photo is perfect. It’s the Health Minister, who didn’t follow government guidance on isolation after a confirmed diagnosis, opening a field hospital, coughing next to a despondent nurse. 

A single image could not summarise this episode better.

 @simon maginn The  @Jeremy Corbyn era should have taught every voter three truths about our shamocracy: (i) Candidate selection is the elite's business, not yours; (ii) Policy must serve the elite's interests, not yours; (iii) Electability is strictly controlled by an elite-owned lie-machine.

 @Time for Change  @simon maginn I never realised what absolute charlatans they were. They thought they could safely argue for a fairer system knowing it would never happen, but when Jeremy made it seem a possibility, their bluff was called and then we saw they would rather have fascism than socialism.
