Seriously, if anyone wants to organise a Twitterstorm to support those striking NHS workers in Bradford, get in touch here.

I believe that their battle is THAT important. We need to back them up. Who's with me?

#Bradford #ForTheMany #SaveOurNHS #JC4PM
If all the people who like this tweet back me up on this, we can potentially make it happen.

More than happy to receive support from bigger accounts than mine if they agree with me here.

If we can support those workers, we have to. They're fighting for all of us.
So impressed with the response comrades. I was away yesterday so I missed this.

If you want to support the Twitterstorm then check this out!

"But Labour have no policies."

I've heard this statement recently on more than one occasion.

It's time to set the record straight. Welcome to the Labour Party policy megathread.
Before I get started, I want to quickly mention my reasons for writing up this thread. I can only speak for myself, but I've felt that my activism has been too reactionary recently. Responding to whatever story we're being hit with by the media and being distracted because of it.
I've started to consider the effects of this, and I've come to believe that we've lost sight of what a Labour government, under Corbyn, would truly mean for the United Kingdom.

We know getting rid of the Tories is good. But why is replacing them with Corbyn better?

A Thread on Jo Swinson 1/x

Libdem MP who previously propped up the Tories during the 2010-15 coalition, and who has repeatedly voted alongside the Conservative Party in favour of tuition fees and devastating cuts to public services and also supported Fracking.

2010: Jo Swinson voted in favour of raising tution fees to Β£9,000 a year which was 100% against their manifesto promise and is leading to massive debt for the future

It's 100% unsustainable.

Look what happened in the USA - Β£1.5 TRILLION DEBT…

Jo Swinson repeatedly side with Tories voted to cut payments to the sick and disabled that have led to the catastrophe of early deaths.…

Thread: #SCN1 completed by @SouthamptonCC this year is brilliant. Millbrook Road East used to be full of rat running traffic but is now a street kids can scoot along and chat in the middle of the road. This street now belongs to them not just cars...πŸ›΄πŸ˜Ž1/5
The Key and Anchor pub front garden next to the modal filter, is now a nice quiet spot for a pit stop on a sunny day without breathing in toxic fumes. Get along there and enjoy a pint in the sun... β˜€οΈ 🍺 2/5
SCN1 now provides a safe, legible route for people of all ages and abilities to cycle from some of the poorest neighbourhoods near the docks into the city centre. This dad can now relax as his kid peddles ahead infront, full of absolute joy singing to herself... 🚲 🎡 🎢 3/5

I have done little else over the past 2+years but try to talk to Brexiters and make them realise the damage they are doing to us all.
Some of them listen, but many don't believe me.
It took me a while to understand why, because
a) I have facts
b) No seriously, I have facts #MyUK
I've watched the unfolding horror of BrexitReality in #MyUK & shared by #BrexitConcerns, but they can't see it.
Look, I say, Brexit was supposed to help our NHS, & make things better but all the NHS unions say it will make things worse #NHSvBrexit
"Unions are paid by the EU" πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
"Look, here's Channel 4 exposing how our data was manipulated to target people with misleading propaganda to make them vote against their best interests. Here's proof the people who want to leave are cheats & liars."
"Channel 4 are paid by the EU" they say, brandishing "proof"

#poll If there was a Snap General Election, who would you vote for?

(For other parties, please vote them in comments)

Please RT once Voted! πŸ˜ƒ
1997: Blair 13.5mn votes
1997-2015: Blairites/ Others lost 180 seats & 5mn voters
2017: Corbyn 12.8mn votes/ Gained 32


add first time voters (75% of those who vote, vote for Labour)

Subtract 2% of the population, 80% of whom vote Tories!

Labour Landslide on the cards!
Lab’s share of vote could be 14.5+mn

Once we take into account first time voters- 16 or under at 2017

first time voters -never voted before, disenchanted by Blair years whilst

removing Tory support -loss of voters due to old age

=> Lab will gain 100+ seats from Tories alone
