In our village, people are crossing the street to avoid each other. Not in a "oh shite they might have it!" Way but with bows, courtesies, tipping of hats, waves, salutes and even a few blown kisses. 1/
I was in the shop earlier and someone asked me to buy a 4 pinter of milk for their neighbour because they could only get 1 & they needed to get some for themselves. We had an awkward exchange outside the shop because I refused the money, put the milk on the ground & backed off 2/
He shouted after me "thank you lovey!" I waved.
There were some kids outside our house on their bikes about 10ft apart having a conversation. Respecting the distancing. 3/

The following is an explanation as to why the #coronavirus #covid-19 epidemic is not just a health emergency. It is an opinion that would (if I had any followers) likely cause a divide but it's a serious cause for concern. (Thread)
The current coronavirus pandemic is being politicised not only badly, but to the extent it is damaging the entire lives of the next generation.
Young children have lost not only their learning but their social interaction which could potentially damage them irreparably growing up
Those students due to sit their GCSEs and A-Levels have been told they now won't be and to grade them the government will "come up with something".

1/4 The #Tory government has put #disabled & chronically ill people through hell the past 10 years. The reason? To stop fraudulent benefit claims and reduce cost. The outcome? Thousands of us died and thousands more suffered humiliation, #poverty & devastating health implications
2/4 The kick in the teeth is; the benefit reforms and #DWP errors actually cost more than the original fraud. On top of this, the Tory's removed all funding for vital services that many vulnerable people in society relied upon. #ToriesOut #Tories #Health #Benefits
3/4 Austerity measures were supposed to reduce debt and save the UK from financial crisis, yet National #debt is the highest it's ever been. The #NHS is on it's last breath, and many of us fear we will not survive another 4 years of #Tory lies, neglect and abuse. #VoteLabour

Well I'm still a relative "newb" when it comes to Twitter, and have been tweeting about #NHSpensioncrisis since Feb (I was moaning elsewhere prior to twitter!). I appear to have amassed just over 5k followers in that time - so a massive thank you for sharing the word!

For those
who have joined late, I thought I would recap the 15 or so of my tweets that have been most shared or viewed (generally each seen 40k-80k times)

So here goes (in reverse order of views)...

Important tweet. If you have an AA charge, you must use 7 years "PIA" as it might reduce or go away entirely

Ah, le sigh. As a medic and Lib Dem, I've twice been tagged on Facebook to explain @LibDems position on Labour's amendment.

Let's be clear:

***@UKLabour's amendment was anti-@NHS***

The amendment regretted the introduction of the 2012 Health And Social Care Act introduced 1/
by the coalition government aka as the Lansley reforms. The amendment Labour put forward would require reversing 7 years of reorganisation and reverting to management structures, since abandoned.

It would be a waste of time and money. It would do untold harm to patients and 2/
staff. And anybody supporting such a change should be ashamed of themselves. The NHS does not need *more* top-down reorganisation.

Of course, the truth is, Labour don't intend to do any of that. This amendment was, once again, using the NHS as a political football and in that 3/

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!

If we stay in the EU, we can eat Xmas food at Xmastime. If #ChaosBrexit happens, “This could leave British shoppers having to turn to the likes of turkey, stuffing and pigs-in-blankets as regular fresh food supplies run low.” H/t @MrSandy_P /52
If we stay in the EU, cancer patients can continue to have treatment with certain radioactive isotopes. These are as unstable as a Slytherin Tory cabinet minister and cannot be stockpiled. H/t @Dr_PhilippaW /53
If we stay in the EU, we can spend £100m between now and Hallowe’en – more than 2x what Proctor & Gable will spend in that time says @kacidama – on sexy shit such as the NHS, transport, education, jobs, housing and cool Hallowe’en costumes.

Some thoughts about the NHS. A thread.

Faced with the imminent installation of either Johnson or Hunt as Tory leader & Prime Minister it is worth thinking about the fact that the more brexity Tory party members are more than prepared to see the sale & destruction of the NHS

They have said they are prepared to flush the NHS down the sewer as long as they get their brexit. Their brexit that in 3 years has gone from "no downside" and "sunlit uplands" through "there will be adequate food" right down to "there will be drinking water available".

Wow. That's some regression.

But let's talk about the NHS.

We know (because he wrote a book about it) that Hunt wants to privatise the NHS. We know (because he finally admitted he deliberately lied) that Johnson will NOT be giving £350 million a week to fund the NHS.

THE DECEIT SYNDROME by Dr Paul Hobday is the big #NHS book we are working on at the moment. With a publication date set for 6th March 2019 so watch this space! Thank you.
All proceeds from sales of this book will go back into campaigning to #SAVEOURNHS and supporting whistleblowers. We need to start talking about this book! I’ll be looking for reviewers soon😊

An ideology has been dictating all our lives for decades, but few have even heard of it. Even fewer could explain it. Most have been brainwashed that it is the only way. Neo-liberalism has taken over the world.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Let's look before we Leave.
We need change, but this is not the change we are looking for

Better safe than sorry.
Do you want this future?
It's in the hands of the People.
Please help put the brakes on Brexit…
I miss summer already.
Crisp chill in the air.
The washing didn't dry on the line this afternoon.
The nights are drawing in.
But there's a different feeling to the usual turn of the seasons.
A dread, building these past years.
Brexit is coming & it will break #OurNHS
Why aren't more People helping to #SaveOurNHS?
Vote Leave's campaign was about giving tons of much-needed money to the NHS.
That's not going to happen.
In fact #OurNHS representatives say Brexit will break it
Let's check (democratically!) that enough of us want that eh?

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.
