After scientists find cancer in the bones of a dinosaur that lived 76 million years ago, Matt Hancock wonders how they managed to do a test so quickly.

So I can go out and spend £80 on a meal tonight with my wife and my 2 boys and we’ll get £40 off. Yet a family with two children who have lost their jobs that I’ve been delivering food parcels to only get £30 for a week. Something is properly messed up.

I think I finally understand. Everybody is lying, all the time. Except the nerds, who are *really bad at lying*. This incapacity makes the nerds "socially awkward" and leads them to build small enclaves (like "science" or "tech") where people mostly don't lie, so machines work.

Boris Johnson making Evgeny Lebedev a Lord in response to the Russia report is the equivalent of Trump pardoning Roger Stone.

Never ridicule someone for mispronouncing a word. It means they learned it from reading a book.

we need to laugh now more than ever.

Some days you eat the bear — and some days the bear eats you. 

Humility and humor will always get you through the tough times.

The Daily Mail claims that  @Jeremy Corbyn is under pressure to return the £250k donations to a legal crowdfund. He is under pressure from The Daily Mail. The legal position on this is that he can simply tell them to f*** off and mind their own business.  #JohnWare  #Corbyn

The new Walmart greeters are wild...

As a Portlander, I wanted to counter the narrative that our city is no longer safe since it's being overrun by violent protests. So, I made maps for perspective on them.

(The yellow box is the overall protest area while the red is the most recent, headline grabbing protests.) 3

 @Carole Cadwalladr So, the Cabinet Office (Cummings) is in charge of all data, all security vetting, all SPADs, conducting a tour and review of classified sites and the Armed Services. This is a coup.

With imminent threats to our NHS, the silence from Keir Starmer is completely unacceptable. This is a big test and so far the response is woefully poor. We need action and leadership, not silence and hesitation. Step up and fight the Tories, we and our NHS deserve nothing less.

So tonight #Newsnight will have a giant glowing red backdrop and a doctored photo of Boris Johnson in a Russian hat right?

I have a story to tell you about fish. No, wait, come back! 20+ years ago I was an exec in the web agency used by WWF (pandas, not wrestlers). And as such I closely involved in their GLOBAL campaign to Stop Overfishing. Remember the word GLOBAL. Here's what I learned

Every single MP worth their salt should have been saying this. Every single one - no exceptions.  @David Lammy deserves so much respect for doing so when others parroted the 'respect for democracy' nonsense.
