Lots of #heatpump chat today.. The £450m pot to provide £5k subsidies for climate friendly heat pumps is enough to convert the heating systems of 90k homes over three years - or around 0.3% of all homes. Which won’t make a dent in our CO2 emissions. @BorisJohnson
We have 20 years to do 100%. This is a covid like gamble and economic nonsense. Heat pumps have a 5 to 10 year payback on a large upfront cost. Similar to solar panels that have taken 20 years to reach about 8% of homes when we ought to be at 25%. We need #ClimateActionNow
So do the maths. 0.1 percent a year 20 years 2%. We need to install at 50 times this rate for 2 decades and most homes will also need a huge insulation upgrade or they wont work. How many can afford the up front investment? Experience with solar suggests about 10% #ToryShambles

Here’s @RoryStewartUK on March 12, 2020.

All talk of ‘hindsight’ is dishonest gaslighting of the highest order.

It’s grim that the PM is sunning himself whilst all this #ToryCovidCatastrophe news swirls around. Like a trial in absentia in which the dictator has fled to another country.

I think Angela Rayner should immediately apologise for calling Conservatives #ToryScum..

..right after they un-kill 150,000 people, #RejoinEU, pay £37 Billion back to the taxpayer, stop #ToryDonors avoiding £70 Billion in tax in the Caymans & give it to the NHS

#ToryCultureWars
I think Tory MP Grant Shapps is correct to say "there's no place in Public Life" for Angela Rayner calling people #ToryScum...

...Public Life is already full with #ToryRacism, #ToryLies, #ToryBrexitDisaster, #ToryShambles, #ToryCriminals, #ToryCultureWars and

..Boris Johnson🤦‍♂️
UPDATE: Angela Rayner didn't call Tory Cabinet MPs #ToryScum

She called them "a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, absolute vile, banana republic, nasty, Etonians”

Of this sentence, Tories only contested "scum"🤦‍♂️

Homophobic, Racist and Misogynistic they accept 👌

Boris Johnson & Michael Gove promised lower fuel bills once Britain left the EU

EU gas prices are high too, but they trade efficiently in linked auctions that balance prices across the EU

We don't because #Brexit 🤦‍♂️

#BrexitReality #ProjectFear #BrexitChaos #ToryBrexitDisaster UK Energy Crisis
So now the UK has the highest energy prices in Europe. We produce most of our electricity from gas.

It's important we make no mistake. This is a problem created by the #ToryBrexitDisaster

They are disaster capitalists who bankrupt industries and buy them up cheap in a monopoly.
Everything that is happening now was predicted in the leaked 2018 Operation Yellowhammer report, saying that a No / Bad #Brexit Deal (which we have) could lead to

Food & Petrol Shortages✅
Significant Electricity Price Increases✅

For now its wholesale (retail prices are fixed)

When Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage & Arron Banks employed propaganda in their campaigns there were 2 target groups.

1) To convince the would-be Leave voters to vote against their interests

2) To make the would-be Remain voters call them stupid to create a culture war & divide

1/
If you're calling Leave voters stupid for being manipulated by propaganda..

..you have also been manipulated by propaganda

How smart do you feel now?

All it needs is the right message to the right target

If you think you can't be tricked, you wont see it coming

We can be

These 3 did not roll out his campaign. SCL Elections did who engaged in psychological warfare in military contexts as a contractor for the American & British militaries during the Afghanistan War & the Iraq War

The people who tricked them were people YOU paid to trick people

Not being funny but perhaps everyone who previously labelled benefits claimants as scroungers, malingerers and far worse, could recognise the difficulties involved.
Maybe imagine also trying to live on a 5th of their income, with #disabilities on top 》》

theguardian.com/money/2021/sep…
Almost everyone learned these past 18mths how being unable to earn their own money feels & the #depression that causes; the instability & #stress that brings to a home, family & relationships.

Maybe remember too that whilst able bodied, you were helped during the #pandemic 》》
While I fully understand that losing that help now is a huge blow (trust me I know), it should be understood that the most #vulnerable received precisely zero help. In a period where delivery slots were taken by able bodied people & buses were a no-go, our costs skyrocketed 》》

A long thread…
Ive been giving some thought to all the things we do badly in this country (it seems a lot). I work in education and i know many of us look at other schools to see what works well and pinch ideas to make our own schools better.
We aren’t proud. We recognise that other schools do great things and we can see how they benefit our own.
Have the government not thought of doing this?? I see and hear great things that benefit EVERYONE in other countries. Why arent we copying them.??
Heres what i think we…
…do badly that im pretty sure is done better elsewhere. (And this isnt just tory bashing cos some things may have been Tony and co.)
People selling assets to pay for social care
The cost of public transport
Honours system and cash for honours
One of the lowest state pensions

Have I got this right, they’re going to charge for flow tests, cram everyone into offices, send people to countries they won’t be allowed in to, and pack venues and sports stadiums full of audiences, all as cases are exploding? Then tell them all to isolate? Absolute genius. 🤯
Is the government drunk? Has someone given them a joke manual on how to wreck all the progress from vaccines at the 11th hour? Is what I’m reading a parody? What are these fools doing? Seriously. 🤯
The farcical thing is they think, having totally mismanaged the entire health situation from day one, that what they’re doing will compensate for it by reviving the economy. If millions are having to self isolate there won’t be a functioning economy. Utterly mental. #ToryShambles

One of the things that are holding us back from change is the very widespread, very understandable belief that it is useless writing to your MP.

Thing is, is enough of us write asking for the same thing, they must take notice. We just have to be of one mind
1/
One thing that pretty much unites us all is that we value the NHS.
So we could all write to ask our MP (and all PPCs* too) that they will work to oppose and reverse the privatisation of the NHS.

Most MPs will respond with declarations of love towards the NHS, followed by guff
2/
We must then start to disentangle and respond to their evasions, brining them back to a clear declaration of intent to halt and reverse the privatisation of the NHS.

This will take some work, but it can be done. Maybe in letter writing groups.

It’s will be hard. But…

Did you behave with selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty & leadership when you had sex on your sofa in your marital home with your mistress you helped get money & lied about it?

Boris Johnson: "Yes" 🤦‍♂️

#TorySleaze #ToryLiars #DowningStreet Are affairs and lying are open and honest?
Here is @paulwaugh's question about Jennifer Arcuri..

..Boris Johnson answered one word

"Yes"

The PM seems to have had the first ever affair with honesty & integrity 🤔

#TorySleaze #ToryCronyism #ToryCorruption #ToryLies #ToryHypocrisy #ToryShambles
Jennifer Arcuri says her romance with Boris Johnson - who was Mayor of London at the time – lasted from 2012 to 2016, while he was married to Marina, mother of their 4 children.

He spoke at her events & she went on to receive £126,000 of taxpayer money 😲

I have been trying to get a #Covid19 Test in the UK since Thursday - as a Clinically Extremely Vulnerable person I am not supposed to attend a test centre in person, but to have a home test instead.

There are no home test kits available in the UK.
There are no Walk-in Test Centre appointments available in the UK.

I live in Gainsborough and have only been offered Drive-through appointments at Donnington and Macclesfield - I don’t feel well enough to drive 60 or 113 miles each way for a test.
I have #coronavirus symptoms and unlike #DominicCummings I will not put myself or others at risk.

Back to refreshing the gov.uk website every hour for a fifth day.

My symptoms are more likely a severe exacerbation of my severe asthma, but my GP advised getting

@AngelaRayner £10 bn for test & trace!! This is utter #ToryFail!!
Baroness Harding made excuses for it as "still only 4 & a half weeks old" on 6th July 2020👇 = UNACCEPTABLE as MONTHS into #CovidUK pandemic! Now ANOTHER 3 MONTHS on & system is utter FAILURE - collapsing!! 1/ Image
Look at #CovidUK testing failing UK! SERIOUS consequences = More UNNECESSARY deaths! #secondwave nightmare!
Compare to other countries - eg Germany, Italy - testing at airports, fast results!! #ToryIncompetence #ToryShambles #ToryCorruption

1 of lots! My take on why it is difficult to read much into #COVID19 cases now compared to previously. Initially we tested only people who displayed symptoms missing many people who weren't tested due to lack of capacity or not really knowing when you should get tested.
Then our wonderful government decided that our testing capacity was woefully inadequate so if you had symptoms just stay home for 14 days and don't get tested. So we had no idea how many people really had it during this period and cases were therefore artificially low
Then we ramped up testing but only for those who were displaying symptoms and only if they came forward. So we would still miss a lot of cases and all asymptomatic cases. We would capture more cases but far from all.

A short thread on Tory rotter Cecil Parkinson, illustrating why the Conservative Party must be *destroyed* to save the country… (pic shows him with Mrs Fascister in 1983). 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #cad #ToriesLie #COVID19 #Parkinson #rotter #ToryShambles
Parkinson was a chartered accountant, and made a pile of money from establishing Parkinson-Hart Securities in 1961. He then entered Parliament in 1970; a normal career path for a Tory obsessed with money & power… 🙄 #ToriesOut #greed #gross 🇪🇺🇻🇳
As is extremely well-known, Parkinson had an affair with Sara Keays, his secretary in Parliament. He resigned his Cabinet post in October 1983, when news of her pregnancy became public. 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #hypocrites #liars #ToryShambles

For your convenience, a curated selection of historical evidence proving that the Tory Party must be *destroyed* to save the country... 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳🦠 (thread of threads) #ToriesOut #history #crooks #JohnsonMustGo #COVID19
(1) We have been lumbered with the most wretchedly awful “prime minister” in history, largely because of our insane class system... 😠✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #JohnsonMustGo #revolting #liars
(2) Tory racism runs deep... Even the “nice” Tories often harbour revolting views. This woeful example leapt out the archives when I was reading @renireni... 😳 #ToriesOut #JohnsonMustGo #racism #ToryShambles #COVID19 🦠

A thread about #COVID19, colonial violence, and how the English class system is wrecking the country. 🧐✊🇪🇺#coronavirus #ToriesOut #history #SystemChange #JohnsonMustGo 🦠
This chap is Hugh Trenchard, or “viscount” Trenchard*, a Tory member of the House of the Lords… 🤨🇪🇺 #ToriesOut

*footnote: I don’t recognise titles for living people, having abolished the honours system. I use them for historical personages, for the avoidance of confusion…
Being a reliable Tory footsoldier, naturally Trenchard has offered his “strong support” to Boris Johnson for his handling of the #coronavirus emergency… 😖✊🇪🇺🦠 #resist #liars #COVID19 #ToriesOut #ToryShambles

5th July 2018 will be the 70th birthday of our beloved #NHS.

This THREAD argues that it is in severe danger under this #Toryshambles government, with #Brexit posing an imminent & particularly invidious threat.

To #SaveOurNHS we must work tirelessly together to #StopBrexit.
1/ Today's devolved #NHS is a complex federation of tens of 000s of orgs employing some 1.7m workers. It's combined annual budget is just shy of £150bn. It handles, overwhelmingly successfully, almost a million patients daily.

With each box maybe 000s of orgs, & England only:
2/ Unresolved public health issues & a fast-expanding multi-morbid elderly population, coupled with chronic underfunding & the blowback from the butchery of social care since 2010 means the #NHS is pressured as never before.
