The infant knew he was unwelcome from the moment he emerged from his mother’s thighs and opened his mouth to bleat in orange-faced despair.

His uncaring parents named him DONALD JOHN TRUMP.

He was born with a grudge in his heart and a chip on his shoulder.
He was going to become THE BIGGEST IDIOT the village of Trumpton had ever seen….

1)My nephew was sent home from school and told to isolate. My sister and brother in law been trying to get home a test. They live in Portland, nearest test site identified on website was Southampton but no tests available. #TestingShambles

Coaxing and threats having been in vain, they locked her up in a wooden box, but no amount of trying to saw it did damage the box. St Fausta remained unharmed, guarded by divine power.

As #coronavirus cases increase locally (up to 36 cases in #Lambeth as of yesterday), more & more constituents are writing to me to complain that they cannot access testing. 1/6

1/5: Testing shambles in Oldham today!. I refuse to let the council take the flack for a national failure.Residents couldn't book online or through 119 and were being turned away from our walk up sites.
Clearly appears national changed guidelines without informing us.
2/5:Testing is a key part of our fight back so how are we supposed to hit a testing target that demands asymptomatic testing.
The biggest most difficult public health issue of our generation and they clearly haven't got a grip but are okay to lay the blame at our door.
3/5:Spent the day speaking to concerned residents who are already doing there best in such challenging circumstances. A mother who got turned away from one site went to another to be turned away again terrified and rightly concerned for the welfare of her child.
