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

Rosa Rossi-this is one of the most unbelievable stories I’ve ever covered in court. Stay with me. Rossi was a SGT of Victoria Police. She used the LEAP database to find properties that were vacant around Melbourne. @7NewsMelbourne
Rossi then hired locksmiths and tricked them into believing she was the true owner of those houses - and had them change all the locks. @7NewsMelbourne
She then advertised the properties on gumtree and met potential tenants to show them through the houses, then she signed them up. There were five all up.

Having just been responsible for a major product launch (and receiving lots and lots of feedback about it), I've been thinking more about public design criticism and this timely point from @swissmiss:
I used to agree with this idea—that everyone should be nice and only share constructive criticism. But I've changed my mind. I think designers just need to prepare for an onslaught of strongly-worded comments and accept that as a baseline part of their job.
The reason? This is not really a design-specific problem. It's a problem with the Internet. People hide behind the glass wall of anonymity and say tons of hyperbolic shit on the Internet all the time.
