Fascinating to watch Tory Tim Montgomerie on Sky News say that many Conservative MPs who voted for Boris Johnson are intent on keeping him in place for the next 9 months like a meat shield to take as much flak from the #CostOfLiving crisis as possible to protect the next leader
Lib Dems win Tiverton and Honiton with a historic share of the vote,
in a result that is less about the tractor porn of their former Conservative MP,
& more about the wanker of a Conservative PM he had been serving under

No real surprise to see Simon Lightwood take Wakefield for Labour,

but a majority of 4,921 and 48% of ballots cast is still a reasonable win in such a Brexity place (66.4% Leave)

Good feeling to wake up to find Boris Johnson's 2019 majority reduced from 80 to 73.

Feels like the country is definitely moving in the right direction for a change 👍🇬🇧

Lots of women have had helpful abortions that changed their lives for the better by giving them control

I have had:
1 miscarriage after not knowing I was pregnant,
1 contraceptive failure termination in a bad time & place,
+ 1 full term pregnancy
Due to my mental health instability until midlife, I would not have been a good parent to either of the first potential people I made, but by the last one, I was so ready & we're doing well.

Obviously as ~1/5 of conceptions end in miscarriage naturally there may have been others
First known:
I had IUD (coil) contraception in place

Turns out I was >16wks unwittingly pregnant when I miscarried. Ectopic.
No idea I had conceived at all. No emotional connection at all, no sense of change to my body.
Only realised I was pregnant after I haemorrhaged it out

White women are under-represented in American abortion statistics, as they generally have better access to family planning education & methods than other ethnic groups

Clarence Thomas signalled the right to contraception is next after RoeVsWade

And Greta Thunberg at Glastonbury speaks for the planet

& those displaced by the Climate Crisis
& the young people who will inherit the mess that the rich countries & people of the world have created
the systems that allow it

we have been lied to
we can act for change Image
Emily Eavis, I don't know if you reached the goal of 50/50 women but this @glastonbury is so strongly female & you should be very pleased with what you have achieved 🙏

Glastonbury proving once more that it is the cultural smorgasbord of Britain.
It's ok to like Crowded House *and* Idles, you know?
And everything in between & over the other side.
Music is love & life & hope & joy & rage & comfort & more
Thank you Michael & Emily ❤️ @glastonbury
