In an Biography he was accused of DV by his ex-wife Charlotte Fawcett. He claims it was “only once” . He hit her so hard he broke her nose and she was hospitalised. The book claims he was violent on multiple occasions over many years /2
In 2021, Tory MP Caroline Nokes accused him of “smacking” her on the bottom and making an inappropriate comment at the Blackpool Tory conference in 2003. He was an MP at the time. This was the first allegation of sexual assault against him. /3

Plans to privatise the NHS didn’t happen today or yesterday either under Tory governments that stretch as far back as Margaret Thatcher. David Cameron and every Tory PM since just accelerated the process and now we have a raft of private health providers sucking the NHS dry!
And they are all linked to the Tory Party. Welcome to the Tory world of Buddy Contracts on an industrial scale. That is also why these Tory governments are also in favour of Brexit as they are out to de-regulate trading rules and pilfer the public sector.
Can’t wait to be recovered sufficiently from my wound infection and all the other health scares that came with it to get out there and join the protests for better pay for all public sector workers on strike and help salvage what’s left of our NHS! #ToriesOut #ToriesCostLives

At the end of 2021 I ended my 36 years in local government & came out of political retirement. Here’s my #Colchester 2022 review which turned out to be one helluva year. Solidarity & #HappyNewYear to all the wonderful new people I’ve got to know in the last twelve months. 1/14
JANUARY: A group of socialists visited Fratting Hall Farm, a former pacifist settlement nr. Colchester, founded during the Second World War in 1943. The painting of the barn which survives to this day was by local artist Roderick Barrett. History 👉… 2/14

So when you're complaining about the Ambulance service strikes, I'd just like to give my story about my mum who worked as a ECA in South Central Ambulance service...
So my mum who had worked in several positions where she was helping people had a kidney removed. We thought the operation was a success, but a few years down the line it took its toll...
She was regularly working 14 hour shifts on a base rate of £19k a year, driving and treating patients with a Paramedic supervising. This went on for a long time, she looked and was exhausted...

Just returned from joint injections.Taxi drivers friend called him,man in a Bham job centre killed himself this morning in front of staff & clients after begging, screaming and crying for help. He had no food,money or family. 😥💔 #RIP. #ToryBritain. #DWP. #ToriesOut
I am absolutely distraught. The whole system is broken, and they just don't care. They have destroyed this country, and broken society for the majority of us, unless you are rich. The poor man was desperate 😥💔
The taxi drivers friend was attending an appointment with his 'work coach' at the time, and witnessed the tragedy. The victim was inconsolable before he ended his life, my heart breaks for him. How many others must die for them to see what they have done? 😥💔

#BloJo is a scandal of clear misconduct in public office. Boris (as Foreign Secretary) was attempting to secure a highly-paid job for Carrie with whom he was having sex while at 'work' in his parliamentary office. His wife was being treated for Cancer. Indefensible #ToriesOut
Misconduct in public office is a common law offence. Johnson’s behaviour occurred in his office when he was foreign minister. When sex occurs while the public official is on duty the concern is the dereliction of duty & unprofessionalism.
#TorySleeze #LickeyEnd
By being caught the situation opens itself to being BRIBED which is a huge problem esp for someone who is PM. The Metropolitan Police should add this to their ever growing Westminster caseload, or at the very least the parliamentary standards commissioner should take a look.

The Tories have been in permanent Campaign mode for over 12 years, endless promises that never materialised in reality. They rely on a heavily funded international militia of self financed business tycoons and oligarchs out to bypass legal restrictions and democracy itself.
In 1955 @iealondon was founded as a 'charitable' institute, it is a veritable paradox of democracy as r/w think tanks operate in the shadows, stealthily instructing Govt in advancing their true agenda of free market chaos, zero tax on rich and total abolition of the welfare state
67 years of r/w Libertarian ideology masquerading as a social science for public well being. Post Brexit UK now stands on the precipice of a total reconfiguration of the World Operating System to anarcho-capitalist ends. To fulfil this dystopian nightmare, democracy must collapse

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is “tempting evil” with his statements about the training of Ukrainian troops abroad amid the conflict with Russia, Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak, who advises the defense minister, said on Friday.
During a visit to India earlier this week, Johnson told journalists that “we are currently training Ukrainians in Poland in the use of anti-aircraft defense, and actually in the UK in the use of armored vehicles.”
Skrzypczak, who headed one of the multinational divisions in Iraq in the mid-2000s, told Polish newspaper Fakt that “when we were on missions abroad it was hard to imagine that one of the politicians would talk about our plans or training on television.”

Bit of a thread...

I live in Toxteth, a deprived area of Liverpool.

I've just been out walking, on my way to the shop, when an old lady called out to me:

"Hey luv, do you know where I go for the thingy?"

"For what, luv?"

#The thingy, in your arm"
"Oh! The vaccination centre? For your vaccination? It's just there, go left at the sign".

"Is it on this side?" She asked me.

I looked properly at the lady and it was pretty obvious that she couldn't see a thing. She had no glasses.

"Come on, luv. I'll take you there".
"Hasn't the weather been awful?" She said to me as we walked the fifty yards to the centre.

"Yes, it's cold, isn't it?" I replied.

I was dressed in a warm bubble jacket and had a Nepalese woollen bobble hat on. This lady must have been 80.

I’ve just watched some of the clips of Nadine Dorries ‘debating’ in Parliament today.

If you’ve put someone like that in charge of your nation’s culture you’ve basically conceded it no longer has one.

Truly pitiful.

Populism isn’t very popular.
They constantly purport to speak on behalf of the ordinary neglected silent British voter but the vast majority of ordinary neglected silent British voters want to be governed by anyone but the Tory Party. Our voting system is a total farce, a dark comedy of errors. #ToriesOut

A thread about drug smuggling, the British Empire, and the ways in which historical wrongdoing by the Establishment persists into the present day. 🧐🧵🌳🍃🍂⛓ #EstablishmentPsychopathy #history #ToriesOut #OpiumWar #ColonialViolence
It’s generally well known that the Opium Wars of the mid nineteenth century were launched by Britain against China in order to benefit British drug smugglers… 🤨🇬🇧🇨🇳 #OpiumWars #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China
After all, even the National Army Museum – not typically regarded as a bastion of anti-Establishment lefties – states this frankly in its displays on the Opium Wars. #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China

Now imagine what could happen if Labour and the Lib Dems built a proper strategic partnership across the country (unlike last night). The Tories would be out for a generation, probably more. #NorthShropshire #ThePartyIsOver
I mean, this was proper, solid right wing Tory Brexit country just two years ago. None of this mess is irreversible. None of it. #ToryBrexitDisaster #ToryShambles #ThePartyIsOver

“I was also furious to see that clip”, says man who we now know hosted a big quiz party against the rules that meant dying people saying goodbye to their families on FaceTime.

He’s gotta go. Now.
Yes, definitely. When you’re working really hard on a crisis that means people are suffocating to death alone over Christmas it’s so normal to suddenly break into a spontaneous quiz whose contestants have been invited in advance and questions carefully prepared, prizes bought.

It’s 20 years since I had to ask a PR firm to remove Priti Patel from the account of the conservation charity I was running because she was so rude to our junior staff, and I see she is still being uninvited to meetings even now she holds one of the great offices of state.

Watch to end. Unfit for the job. Totally unfit for purpose.
Government brainstorm: Who should head up efforts to tackle online abuse?

It’s good that Nadine Dorries is so keen on making sure taxpayers’ money is used effectively, like when she disappeared into a jungle for weeks for a TV show instead of doing the job taxpayers pay her to do, being an MP, whilst pocketing a 40 grand fee in the process. #toriesout

Priti Patel’s brilliant scheme to attract the best minds in the world to global Britain is going, well, much as you’d expect.

Merkel says farewell to France.

This is what grown up diplomacy looks like. And what the EU project means to so many citizens on that vast continent. Whilst we sit outside the tent, drunkenly shouting at foreigners.

Beautiful. 🇪🇺
I find this intensely moving. Bridges not walls. Peace not jingoism and war-making. Cooperation not stand offs.We have made a terrible, terrible mistake. #BrexitBritain
I wish all those who lost their lives in WW2 could have seen this moment.

First event in Johnson's constituency. Frightening lack of engagement today, but then we did have competition from a wildlife stall & Bertie the owl who was truly MAGNIFICENT! #takebackbritain
Our results came from interesting conversations on hard hitting questions about Johnson's performance as constituency MP for Uxbridge & South Ruislip & PM. /3

“This government stands unequivocally against Critical Race Theory”. 😳
It’s not just Trump: the Tories are every bit as extreme in their attacks on legitimate and profoundly important academic work. I really am a bit speechless...
I can’t get over this. #CriticalRaceTheory as an “ideology”. Fuck off. And #BLM denigrated as “political”: OF COURSE IT’S FUCKING POLITICAL.
FWIW, this is the Under-Secretary of State for *Equalities*... 🤦‍♂️

A thread about the power of protest, the meaning of 3.5%, and why the corrupt Cummings/Johnson cabal must be removed from No 10… 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺 #3Point5Percent #resist #ToriesOut
Three weeks ago, I posted this humble proposal ⬇️ for a peaceful revolution to remove the crooked squatters in Downing Street… Our systems of accountability are largely failing, so we need to take action ourselves, inspired by the 3.5% rule… 🧐✊🌹🇪🇺 #resist #3Point5Percent
Since then, a wide variety of reply guys & Tory apologists (as well as a handful of despair trolls) have popped up in my mentions with some typically unoriginal arguments for why the beshitted Johnson is untouchable. 🙄✊🌹🇪🇺 #3Point5Percent #JohnsonMustGo
