After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

Absolute hatchet job from #dispatches on Jacob Rees-Mogg. Financial illiteracy masquerading as journalism, here are the worst of the mistakes filmmaker Antony Barnett made... /1
Barnett claims JRM "may have" earned at least £7m. This is based on Companies House filings freely available online. JRM correctly states this is a "figure you've invented". Here's why... /2…

Just watched #dispatches #BreastfeedingUncovered and as someone who is currently feeding a 8 month old it left me emotional and angry. A thread:
Breastfeeding is one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done but it’s also the best thing I’ve ever done. It totally sickens me that local councils are cutting breastfeeding support whilst the NHS encourages breastfeeding to new mums.

Just spent my lunch break catching up on last night's #dispatches 'getting rich from the housing crisis' - some thoughts:
It's certainly true that we are losing genuinely affordable homes at a time when we need them more than ever - @CIHhousing analysis show we lost more than 150,000 homes for social rent between 2012 and 2017 alone…
The total figure is made up of 103,642 local authority homes & 46,972 housing association homes, mostly due to homes being converted to ‘affordable rent’ or being sold through right to buy - dispatches focused solely on housing associations & didn't mention right to buy at all
