Cornelius Fudge would have managed brexit and covid19 better

"Liverpool is a humanitarian city and it will always be a humanitarian city and we would much rather see refugees here than Nigel Farage" https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/mayor-joe-says-refugees-welcome-18732856

In case you missed it last night - my thread showing why Andrew Mills/Prospermill/Ayanda are likely to have made at least £50m profit supplying duff or untested PPE to the NHS.

Bleak warning from Frank Atherton, Chief Medical Officer for Wales, on the extra pressures facing Welsh NHS this winter. On top of the annual flu season, we could see another spike of coronavirus and possibility of No Deal Brexit. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-politics-53677702

It’s amazing the govt is having to spend £650million just so one part of the UK can trade with the rest of the UK. And that’s Brexitwang.

Up to £355 million of taxpayers' money will be spent on helping companies in Northern Ireland cope with red tape caused by Brexit https://www.lbcnews.co.uk/politics/brexit/355-million-public-money-northern-ireland-business-europe/

Problem is many in HMG have blind faith in British exceptionalism and keeping the faith in an ideologically pure Brexit as the panacea for all future challenges. UK reality inevitably is more complex and there is likely to be a hard landing as reality trumps sovereignist dreams.

Banning TikTok isn’t just about China. It’s about Trump’s ego, Kpop kids, comedians, and the lack of API making it hard for his campaign to get a handle on what’s going on that will cost him votes. And yes, he is that much of a baby.

In the middle of a pandemic and a global economic crisis, Jeff Bezos cashed out $3B in Amazon stock this week. At the same time, Bezos refuses to give Amazon employees hazard pay and paid sick-leave. The unbridled greed of America’s billionaires never ceases to amaze me.

Boris Johnson continues to say he believes Mr Cummings behaved reasonably and he considers the matter is closed. RT this if you disagree with him on that  #MatterNotClosed

Your daily reminder @BorisJohnson. The public have not forgotten how you ignored the rule of law, shut down journalists & experts & put lives at risk to keep your adviser Dominic Cummings in a job.

We have not #MovedOn. NO WAY!

Poll puts Keir Starmer ahead of Boris Johnson in major polling shift for best person to be PM https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/top-stories/keir-starmer-yougov-poll-1-6781926

We are here to ensure the UK upholds the fundamental values of the EU: ◾ Peace ◾ Democracy ◾ Safety ◾ Human rights ◾ Freedom of movement ◾ Partnership, collaboration ◾ Celebration of diversity ◾ Respect and tolerance ◾ Environmental protection ◾ Economic certainty

Dominic Cummings’ reckless disdain for the laws he helped create undermined the public’s trust in vital public health measures during a deadly pandemic. And yet Boris Johnson is so beholden to him he’s still in post. This is no way to run a country.

Dominic Cummings' lockdown trip lowered public trust in government, study finds

NHS accused of wasting 'eye-watering' amount of money | Daily Mail Online Your headline is wrong ⁦ @Daily Mail U.K.⁩ It should be “THE GOVERNMENT is wasting eye watering sums of money” INSTEAD of investing more economically in NHS and Public Health https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8602305/NHS-accused-wasting-eye-watering-money.html

Brexity types going mad about France ‘allowing’ migrants to come here. Did they not realise that France has spent years trying to hold them back?

2,000 people died from Covid in the U.S. yesterday. Two. Thousand. And today, the president of the United States is headed for his golf course. Historians will be baffled. Baffled.

£900 per person contacted. It’s not the NHS wasting money, though. This isn’t an NHS app. This is the Govt wasting taxpayers’ money on an insecure private company’s app and over-centralised system. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8602305/NHS-accused-wasting-eye-watering-money.html

What is white privilege? 

We asked @JohnAmaechi, psychologist, best-selling author and former NBA basketball player to explain it for us.

So furious that Johnson’s Conservatives are lying again about planning rules. It is simply untrue that most planning applications take 7 years. This is putting even more money into the hands of landowners. Johnson’s rich chums winning again.

Unemployment doubles to 2.6m and the economy plummets 9.5% in the worst fall for 100 years before a slower than previously expected recovery - Bank of England's latest forecast. Presenting this as good news reminds me of Monty Python's Black Knight and tis but a scratch

The production price for the leading covid drug, Remdesivir, is $1 per patient. It's manufacturer, Gilead, charges $2,500 per patient. It was developed with TAXPAYER money.

The new *daily* allowance for peers in the House of Lords is £323. The *monthly* allowance for a single person under 25 on Universal Credit is £342.72.

Before Brexit: stick stuff on a truck and go. After Brexit: complete multiple items of paperwork, secure a Kent Access Permit, hold in lorry park, join queue, wait for customs inspection, go. Brexit: slashing red tape since 2016.

Britain hoping to sign a trade deal with Japan this week...potentially boosting the British economy by 0.07% . Sign 70 of those and you’d almost make up the 5% of lost GDP growth the govt estimates Brexit will cause (if we get a Canada-style trade deal) https://on.ft.com/3kfDnGb

Fat cats: Don’t believe the hype about executives of large companies cutting their pay. Despite taking business rates holidays, pay for furloughed staff, UK govt-backed loans and promises of pay restraints, fat-cattery has continued. Govt has done zilch. https://leftfootforward.org/2020/08/dont-believe-the-hype-about-fat-cats-cutting-their-pay/

Here Politico explains why Johnson’s fta is barely different to no deal. “government is preparing for the possibility of miles-long lorry queues in the southeast of England at the start of 2021” https://www.politico.eu/article/boris-johnson-brexit-trade-deal-not-different-from-no-deal/

With the best and brightest UK & EU nationals leaving the UK, and EU workers and students no longer coming, UK industry and universities will have difficulty to fill places, yet another  #Brexit bonus...👌 https://www.businessinsider.fr/us/number-of-brits-moving-to-eu-has-risen-30-since-brexit-vote-2020-8
