How can they possibly get away with this? More lives will be lost & families destroyed How dare Matt Hancock say they’re “throwing a protective ring” around care homes? Incompetence, negligence, deceit - these words don’t come close  #EnoughIsEnough https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/care-home-coronavirus-testing-pledge-abandoned-tqxf6mm6j

It’s time for The House of Lords to be abolished. RT if you agree.

 @Helen Hindle And the collective evidence says.....of course it does. Ability grouping is harmful.

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

Abolish First Past the Post.

People (cough,  @Charlie Warzel) like to say Facebook is simply too big to moderate at scale, but that's a bit like saying Ford is too big to make its cars safe. Facebook could probably do it, it would just be less profitable. https://www.wired.com/story/stop-saying-facebook-too-big-to-moderate/

*Update* Now on http://mathsimum.com: Curriculum:  @Helen Hindle’s latest Mixed Attainment lessons CPD:  @Miss Illsley’s booklet;  @Nikki🧮📐🤓’s blog Prompts and puzzles:  @Maths Starters;  @Andrew Fenner; Chris Smith’s  @Chris Smith Corona Conundrums. Also check out his  #MathsNewsletter!

Still think it’s pretty extraordinary to have Russian state-backed  @RT going in to defend Boris Johnson from accusation that he & Russian state have aligned goals..

No better illustration of the decline of Western media standards than this. Not only does  @Carole Cadwalladr get to publish her work in anything but a dream journal, but supposedly saner colleagues have seen it fit to award this fire-eyed conspiracist a Pulitzer & Orwell Prize.

Shocking & irresponsible for Scottish Labour & Tories to demand end to Sturgeon's Covid briefings covered by BBC. They are surely aware zero deaths in Scotland day after day to England's still often well over 100? Communication is central to public health https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/18608295.bbc-urged-drop-sturgeons-politicised-daily-covid-briefi...

Well well, who would have guessed? Tubby Brexiteer Lord Bamford, Mr JCB, the man who bankrolled Johnson and keeps Tory coffers topped up, is hedging his bets and opening a huge factory in Germany.

Chris Williamson is out here rallying for Corbyn, even though not one member of the socialist group of MPs (not *one*) rallied for him. That’s what a man of principle looks like. It’s time those on the left who threw  @Chris Williamson under the bus made their apologies.

Support for Brexit has collapsed. Deal ‘negotiations’ are close to collapse. There’s a sodding great message staring the government in the face. PULL THE PLUG ON BREXIT. The country doesn’t want Brexit, it certainly doesn’t need it. Stay in the SM & CU! Reform, Rejoin.

Boris Johnson’s 2 minute challenge video, full of lies, spin, smoke & mirrors just passed a million views. Help send this counter video, telling the public the truth, to 2 million. Let’s expose this charlatan once & for all, together

Humanity: we can print trillions and trillions in currency with the push of a button, save the banks, enrich billionaires beyond imagination, but we just can’t solve poverty, homelessness nor prevent over 25,000 people dying of hunger every single day.

Riddle me this: if a Prime Minister admits he “didn’t understand the virus in the way that we would have liked in the first few weeks and months”. Yet he also missed 5 COBRA meetings, 8 conference calls with EU leaders & didn't lockdown when SAGE advised. What does that make him?

This chap’s been more blot than copybook for months. When sycophancy to a dishonest PM is prioritised over standards in public life, we all lose. And when the PM’s closest aide is allowed to treat rules with contempt, there are no standards to be held to. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/robert-jenrick-claimed-100-000-expenses-for-third-home-0szhp8lzh

Clement Attlee’s Labour Government said it wasn’t good enough to go back to the old and unfair ways of doing things – and despite great challenges, transformed our society. 

75 years later, their legacy lives on.

“This is a vital report that demands a response. That it hasn’t got one from the man who is leading the country is a source of profound disquiet. Britain has a national security problem. And his name is Boris Johnson.” https://gu.com/p/ed346/stw

So-called ”climate denialism” is no longer the problem. But rather the general ignoring and belittling of the climate emergency. As this sends signals that the situation is under control and real action is being taken - while the crucial 1.5-2°C goals are slipping out of reach.
