Impt point being made by  @Joy Reid right now on  @MSNBC: That it's a massive strength, not a weakness, that  @Joe Biden picked someone who challenged him and went after him in the debates. Quite a contrast with  @Donald J. Trump

Though Democrats have reduced their convention program to just two hours each night, the party unveiled a wide array of speakers for the upcoming event, including two former presidents and several of Joe Biden's Democratic primary opponents. https://trib.al/AaIiLKl

We should ensure people don't drown crossing the Channel, not film them as if it were some grotesque reality TV show.

Ministers bid to quell revolt over exams by allowing mock results https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/aug/11/keir-starmer-england-must-alter-course-on-a-level-...

Despite huge advantages - a centralised healthcare system, an island nation, which was hit late - we will have the worst fall in GDP in the G7 and the highest level of excess deaths in Europe. And all the racist rhetoric in the world will not change those simple facts.

Children haven’t missed six months of education. They have not been in school for a maximum of 17 weeks. Many pupils were taught during this time either from home or in school. We were not closed. . @Good Morning Britain (I’m over 40 and have been in school every day!)

I’ve known Senator @KamalaHarris for a long time. She is more than prepared for the job. She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake. This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing.

Journalists please note: I believe there is a sea-faring honour code that you should always come to the aid of a struggling vessel. What you're not supposed to do is film and bellow at them, and then drive off. It's not a fucking safari. If you don't get that, get off the boat.

Inhumanity is a choice, regardless of your politics. That line in the Grundgesetz is there because of Germany's past. Right at the top. If you have zero sympathy for people fleeing persecution, or thing a dhingy landing in Kent is an "invasion", you are a monstrous human being.

On my first night in Berlin I watched the debate between the two Chancellor candidates in the federal election. When challenged on how she handled the migrant crisis she quoted the first clause of the constitution: "Human dignity is inviolable". And she's a Conservative.

Beware of politicians who encourage you to be scared of other groups of people.

Farage and his puppets Patel and Johnson claim asylum seekers are a burden on the state. That's because it's illegal for asylum seekers to work, costing the taxpayer £100m a year.
