Reasons why you need to watch #Gomorrah: A thread
Authenticity: #Gomorrah isn't a US drama, nor is it trying to mimic one. It's easily up there with the best prestige TV in the US, but it's not trying to copy them. It is Italian, and more than that it is Neapolitan. It feels & looks authentic, which makes it unlike anything else

A thread on why @MarcusRashford is the Tories' worst nightmare:
He has a simple message:
- Children living in poverty are going without food;
- They rely heavily on schools for at least one decent meal a day;
- When schools are closed, they literally go hungry.

Here’s a thread on why I think it is vital that @DawnButlerBrent is on the ballot for Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, and why she is my strong preference to take on that role:
Values: In an era when far too many MPs stand for nothing but their own career prospects, Dawn is a conviction politician. She has fought for survivors of domestic violence, refugees facing persecution, workers asking for basic human rights and true equality & dignity for *all*.

This no deal talk is concerning.
On the one hand, you assume it's just a pathetic negotiation tactic. Pathetic as it's so clearly not an option.
On the other, we've seen how utterly reckless this Tory govt are. And you realise they're actually deranged enough to risk it.
The real issue is accountability. No one's accountable. Everyone has excuses ready.
We saw it with the bus. They all used it as a tool, but then no one took responsibility for the NHS lie.
They'll all just resign or retire, or complain the 'wrong kind' of Brexit was negotiated.
