(none of these are mine, they are all the work of @IamHappyToast. I put that in the alt-text but it isn't showing up)

Government responded to “#KeepTheUplift” petition

"The Government always intended the £20 per week increase to be a temporary measure... It will not be incorporated permanently into the standard rate.

This Government is wholly committed to supporting those on low incomes "🙄
"with restrictions eased and we are ramping up our recovery, the Government is rightly shifting its focus to supporting people to move into & progress in work as quickly as possible."

That is no use to people who need help now.
Jam tomorrow, but never jam today. #KeepTheUplift
No shit
"the importance of employment... in substantially reducing the risks of poverty. In 2019/20, there was only a 3% chance of children being in absolute poverty (before housing costs) if both parents work full-time compared with 42% for 2-parent families with only PT work"

Boris Johnson insists he's never told a single lie in his whole political career

He even lies about lying.

Pathological #SackBoris
Source of "Boris Johnson insists he's never told a single lie in his whole political career"
is this from 29 November 2019…
Boris Johnson lies
"I try to tell the truth in a way that is whole & entire & as clearly as I can & I think that is the secret of, uh, success in politics
I think it is Tony Montana in the film Scarface who says: ‘I always tell the truth even when I lie"…?

I made this last night because I had so many photos of #BrexitFoodShortages from yesterday's trip to the supermarket.
It's a bit shit, so very Brexit.
Needs a jaunty soundtrack
Things can only get worse...
I've been keeping notes on #BrexitFoodShortages for the past month or so.
Up until now this Sainsburys store has regular gaps but a low footfall in the 2 months since EUSS locked in.

In 2 weeks time it needs to help feed 10Ks students too.

I'm concerned

Are we just ignoring the Brexit food price increases that accompany the gaps #BrexitFoodShortages?

My elder neighbour likes sardines in sunflower oil once a week
Last wk I could buy her a can for 40p
Yesterday it cost £1.35

As if they couldn't find a nurse for the Conservatives GE2019 manifesto who was able to keep a straight face at a promise from Boris Johnson that he cared about what's best for Britain 😆 ImageImage
Boris Johnson's Brexit is the least likely to "unleash Britain's potential" as he promised.
Does he ever keep any of his promises? ImageImage
JFC this is all just such bollocks blarney from Boris Johnson, but there were so many people that it worked on #fUKed 🤦🏽‍♀️

No wonder he's got so many kids Image

Last year the people who were trying to spread Covid-denial disinformation & anti-vaxxer nonsense were the KBF movement.
Now it's HART group & assorted Covid-sceptic anti-vaxxer allies, incl. UsForThemUK & KBF remnants

This wk they are trying to spread their message of resistance to accepted science-based protection, using the hashtag #Together

Listen to them & we all fall together
