Everyone should read this. Government giving £225m of tax payers money to a £100 company, owned by an advisor to Conservative MP Liz Truss, for PPE that cannot be used, without due procurement process. I'm trying to think of a word.... Oh yeah, corruption.

Just remind me, how did they get Al Capone in the end?

Good to see a man at the top of his game.

How strange. Don’t they read the Daily Mail?

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

Gisela Stuart, Kate Hoey, Claire Fox. Amazing to see how many leading Brexiters who condemned unelected politicians making our laws are happy to become unelected politicians making our laws.

Lords reform is now essential. It is open to such corruption and patronage.

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

Don’t think most people understand the scale of the COVID-19 crisis. This is a massive problem that’s not going away anytime soon. Countries & gov’ts need to plan- what’s the strategy to get through this with least damage to health, society & the economy? What’s the game plan?

Nick Robinson was hold by Matt Hancock on Radio 4 it was just Nick’s friends that were confused About government rules.

We are getting nowhere.  #PMQs is broken. There is no shame in politics anymore. You can stand there, make gags, avoid questions and repeat populist slogans without any duty to address questions with detail and fact. The longer this continues the more more normal it becomes.

I gave MI5 direct correspondence between Russian embassy officials and senior Brexit campaigners, but nothing happened. There was huge interest from US agencies about what Russian officials were doing in the referendum, but UK agencies didn’t want to know. https://news.sky.com/story/russia-report-uk-badly-underestimated-interference-threat-from-moscow-say...

ISC  #RussiaReport in effect puts UK Security services and Cameron, May & Johnson in the dock for turning a blind eye to Russian interference from 2014 on.

A useful input to the public enquiry...or in its absence ...a reasonable alternative  @Mark Huband

Why am I thinking of 1914 when Johnson says it’ll all be over by Christmas?
