Heartfelt plea to @BorisJohnson from a final year student midwife drafted in to help the coronavirus fight.
Hers is 1st cohort facing student debt of £60k plus 6% interest. And her year misses out on new £5k grant + support.
Can the PM and @MattHancock help those helping them?
Letter is impeccably polite but firm.
"As you have called upon us to respond to this crisis, I call upon *you* now to please make a special grant to our year group".
Given the PM's partner @carriesymonds is pregnant, he will be acutely aware of the sterling work being done by NHS midwives.
And given the relatively small cost of sorting this anomaly, maybe @MattHancock can sort it quickly?

1) No one should be surprised:

“...Mueller Gang Threatened @GenFlynn’s Son, Forced General to Sacrifice Himself or See His Son Destroyed”

2) Yet...
Most Americans still have faith “in the system”.

This is misplaced faith in the face of facts.

Until forced into the [in]justice system, as a “good” American, you believe.🇺🇸⚖️

#PardonFlynnNow @GenFlynn
3) The incredible @SidneyPowell1 exposed the weaponization of the [in]justice system and the devastating destruction of “Prosecutorial persecution” in #LicensedToLie.
It continues against @GenFlynn

There shall be ZERO spoilers from me. Don't worry. This is one of the biggest cinematic moments of our lifetimes. I'm watching the midnight showing...
Good luck everyone.
Here's a recap of how we got here!
#WhateverItTakes #AvengersEndgame
I need Captain Marvel to be a more interesting character than Captain America. She was brilliant at the start of her movie. She was practically Tony Stark in warrior form. More of that personality please!! #AvengersEndgame
(Yes, I'm tweeting all my thoughts now, because you all know I haven't seen #AvengersEndgame yet, so none of these tweets can be spoilers. I'm not looking forwards to having to go into Marvel radio silence once I enter the cinema.)

Some of you think it's the job of the FBI to investigate to reveal or verify facts. They do not. As was explained by every honest member of the Senate judiciary the FBI only submits a 302… via @RollCall
So what they'll do is find out when Mark Judge worked at the Safeway Supermarket (that's an IRS pull), and then what? They'll ask him why he "turned white" and was uncomfortable saying hello to #BlaseyFord the summer of 1982.. Except that Mark Judge doesn't remember 1982.
Then we are going to go to her lifelong friend Leland Keyser who also says the party NEVER happened and issued a sworn statement under penalty of perjury (but of course we should believe every woman EXCEPT her..). They are going to demand what exactly from her?
