.@MattHancock You can EITHER:

Proudly refuse to apologise for unlawfully failing to publish PPE contracts on time, saying you were saving lives.


Deliver expired PPE, buy £250million of unusable PPE from Tory mate Andrew Mills & let 100s of NHS staff die.

Was this the kind of contract you righteously broke the law for?

Giving £250 million in tax-payer money to a company owned by the wife of Liz Truss' former advisor, only for the PPE they made to be found defective?
#Marr #Ridge

Is this where you got the arrogance to be able to brazenly say screw the law on national television?

Were you just so proud of your track record as health secretary, @MattHancock, that the rule of law simply melted into insignificance.
No apology. No remorse.

He's saying it's OK to break the law if you get results.


100s of NHS staff died alongside 125,000 other people across the UK!

Without our shop staff, nurses & bin men during lockdown, we'd have been starving, dead or living in our own sh*t.
Have the Tories forgotten that already?
It's working class people who've been keeping us alive more than any hedge fund manager.
It's working class people who've been less able to work from home, and therefore more exposed to Covid 19 so...
It's working class people who've sacrificed the most during 2020-1.
Therefore statistically...

Middle class: Job + work from home - travel costs.

Working class (unless furloughed/fired) : Job + travel + extra safety procedures + PPE + viral danger + childcare but with less academic support + downgraded A-Levels - Wages.

Had an argument with a relative about my attitude to journalists. Boiled down to whether an interviewer's role is to:

▪️ Just extract the messages from the politicians and relay them to other politicians.
▪️ Come up with their own arguments against politicians' narratives
Them: If the politicians are bad, it's up to the people to see that and remove them. Journalists have no such electoral responsibility.

Me: The public aren't experts in all political issues, so journalists have to provide the info the public needs to judge MPs accurately.
Journalists accepted the "Will of the People" narrative because neither Labour or Tories were saying: "If 52% want different incompatible EU-UK relationships, it's not possible to please them all".
And here we are.

Journalism shouldn't depend on Westminster Wisdom alone.

I once cheated on my girlfriend with her mum; she dumped me and stopped taking my calls. #CancelCulture.
My political party caused the worst death rate on the planet and then some people refused to vote them into office again. #CancelCulture
My favourite teacher used to read Mein Kampf to us every day in Year 2 and now there's a petition to ban her from teaching. #CancelCulture

Hi @GrantShapps
Apart from freight drivers, you need to restrict the number of people who can enter the UK to the number of hotel rooms available for mandatory quarantine.
If we get Covid down to low numbers by May, but a vaccine-resistant strain has already got in, It's on you.
Thanks @Lee4NED for publicly saying the reason you won't impose mandatory hotel quarantines on travellers from all countries is that the policy may become permanent. (from a government with 15+ U-turns)
Makes holding you to account for the consequences much easier.
Thanks @MattHancock.
You just publicly admitted that you're only going to impose mandatory hotel quarantine on countries where you've already identified that there's a new variant.
Waiting for a Covid disaster before you take preventative measures has worked really well so far!

Proportional Representation can fix the gender balance problem in Parliament on DAY ONE.

Under PR each party puts forward a list of candidates in order of preference depending on how many votes the party gets.

So you make it the law that it alternates woman-man-woman-man etc.
Anyone who thinks I'm suggesting some crazy new idea that's never been done before...
Please look across the Channel. Just for one second.🙄
Also, you see women make up 34% of UK MPs, and me suggesting that we make it 50% and you're like "NOOOOOOO!"...
