I do wish some TV interviewer would ask the following questions re social care for the elderly:

You have now capped the amount a person should spend before further costs become free.
Can we assume a bed is included in their capped expenditure?
2/3 And will the bed be in a room, also included in the capped expenditure?
If not, how will you provide nursing care without either bed or room for the bed?
Also, can they bring sleeping bag and a tent and erect it on the lawn free of charge?
Can we also assume food will be provided, and included in the capped expenditure?
If not can family send in sandwiches?

1/11 Possible large swathes of the population have no idea/interest in what this govt is up to? Could groups of us (say 10) protest regularly with banners/placards stating Referendum lies/consequences of Brexit? These protests could be stationary,& even maybe silent.
2/11 20 = 2 groups/2 protests @ different times but REGULARLY + different placards? URGENT NEED TO GET INFO into the public consciousness, and maybe garner support for more similar protests? If XR can do it, so can we, but without the glue. Aim is to inform/encourage resistance.
3/11 The more groups of 10 stand silent with SIMPLE punchline worded placards re brexit consequences, the lies, demands to rejoin the SM and CU. the more others will take courage/the truth from your actions. It COULD spread??

Cummings is obsessed by his own 'clever' 'original'perceptions, possibly over-encouraged/indulged as a youngster by doting parents.
BUT he lacks stamina in dealing with objections, or thinking his ideas through. Reading his meagre writings, he wanders all over the place,
leaping from one train of thought to another, and leaving hanging the original thought. None of the ideas are followed through by any clear thinking or consideration of possible faults in the ideas. Obsessive. Any challenge is swiped to one side. The 'thin'
idea is paramount. No necessary detail.
Have met a fair few such.
Most were under 20!

(Mirror today 30th):
The Batley & Spen by-election has become so unpleasant that Labour’s Kim Leadbeater now requires a police escort.

No candidate should find themselves in this position, least of all the sister of murdered MP Jo Cox.

This should be a moment of nation

It should also be a moment of national condemnation from all the main party leaders, a condemnation which, with the exception of Keir Starmer, has been depressingly absent.

We know the primary reason why the by-election has become so acrimonious –
the intervention of George Galloway whose modus operandi could be described as the opposite of Jo Cox's notion we have more in Common than that which divides us.

Galloway's strategy depends in a large part on exploiting rather than healing divisions.

The fact that

5/until she fell to the ground, of a reporter screaming at the police, as they attacked him, that he was a bystander and merely reporting.
This is not acceptable.
This was not necessary.
You need to train your police to have more discrimination as to whom they attack, to develop
6/better negotiating and crowd control skills, to act more wisely and productively rather than panic and lash out.
Had I been one of the seated protestors, or the young woman with the guitar, or the reporter, or anyone about to be trampled underfoot by your cavalry, I would sue
7/and pursue you to the 9th circle of hell.

Your actions were harmful and will only increase distrust.
We need a trustworthy, and a WISELY competent police force.

This is a copy of the letter am sending.

1/Dear PC March and PCC Mountstevens
I have always supported and respected the police force. This morning, however, I saw with horror the events of last night in Bristol.
The heavy-handed police behaviour was appalling, and can only
2/exacerbate an already fraught and volatile situation; I am amazed you chose to act in such a senseless and unproductive manner.
Initially, the situation was calm and peaceful. When certain hotheads and RentaMob thugs attempted to disrupt, your police attacked quite
3/indisciminately. Surely, with your resources, and intellignce you could have moved in on the troublemakers and removed them, without endangering the safety of the vast majority of peaceful protestors?
It is also disturbing to note that even initially when all was calm you
