I thought that "back to the 1970s", "sick man of Europe thing" was supposed to be a joke"

It was a joke, right?

Labour crowing about being "the party of sound money" makes me queasy, because Tory style "economic competence" implies austerity, & national debt reduction, for decades to come

Lab shouldn't be a slightly greener version of Cameron's Tories

Where's the real change?

#r4today Even as the Overton window shifts to the left, Starmer's Labour doesn't have the vision to seize the moment with radical policies that the country can believe in

Its grand plan is to say nothing controversial and wait for the Tories to eventually annoy people to death

Historically, the Tufton St ghouls largely tried to pretend their ideology was really about helping everyone

It's a sign of how this country has become detached from its moral & rational moorings, that vampire squids from the IEA can now just say what they really think out loud

Despicable, people promoting hate towards a maligned minority in order to win votes from a baying reactionary right wing mob.

Whoever is made Tory leader, expect a rush to introduce deeper austerity to 'fund' tax cuts for corporations & income tax cuts that primarily help the wealthiest

The Tory debt mountain will grow massively all while they fill their own & their mates' wallets

#C4News #bbcaq So predictable

Javid claims his cut in corpn tax is "fully funded" & "if we don't get the tax cuts, we won't get the growth"

Tell that to every country in the EU that has higher taxes than the UK, higher economic growth, AND better public services

FOURTEEN DAYS of wasted Daily Mail front page headlines

Paul Dacre must be proud.

@LBC #bbcaq @LBC Please do take a moment to think of Dan Hodges on this most difficult of days

Good grief - not another one

#PartyGate #BorisLiedBritonsDied @LBC #bbcwato #wato #SueGrayReport @metpoliceuk @LBC @metpoliceuk So the Sunday Times is confident that Johnson's party both broke the law and Johnson has no defence, but he wasn't fined for it nor did @metpoliceuk or #SueGray investigate it.

Sounds legit.

Every day for six years, the Brexit press, MPs, & lobbyists have hunted for a positive, material Brexit outcome; something that would make the £bns in lost trade, removal of personal freedoms, inflation, and the fracturing of Britain, worth it

They've found nothing

#r4today This is why we end up with front-page stories about stuff that never happened (EU banning imperial measures & crowns on pints) or stuff that was always happening ("UK opens door to world's top graduates") on an increasingly regular rinse & repeat cycle

May 29, 2022 6 tweets 6 min read
Are we really doing this again?

Even the propagandists at the Mail on Sunday know the EU never banned the crown from appearing on pint glasses - something Tories established for themselves in 2007

Desperate stuff

Also, how long are we going to be made to wait for the #SueGrayReport?

#PartyGate #PoliticsLive #OneRuleForThem #CrimeMinister Has to be said, it appears that there have only been a maximum of 26 more fines issued since the last update from @metpoliceuk - so, the chances that Johnson accounts for several of these seems increasingly unlikely.

I voted Green yesterday, and I'm happy with my decision.

Gains made by @LibDems & @TheGreenParty, while @UKLabour massively underperformed, sends a strong message that Starmer needs a #ProgressiveAlliance to be PM.

He won't listen though.

#r4today #bbcaq #LE2022 @LibDems @TheGreenParty @UKLabour This is what happens when you provide no meaningful opposition, have no policies, & no personality.

What is the point of @UKLabour?

I hate to say it, but it really feels like this is going to be a good night for Boris Johnson.

#LocalElections2022 #bbcaq I've never been more delighted to be wrong, but at least I was taking a punt in the middle of the night based on evidence.

This extraordinary gaslighting from @Daily_Express, a rag that actually dares to call itself a "newspaper" really ought to be illegal.

Religious fundamentalists in the US are morally no different to the fascist fundamentalists of Islam.

The antediluvian and misogynist views of both are an affront to decency and liberal democracy.

Johnson's "tough" sanctions:

"5 Russian banks" & "3 Russian individuals" (not Putin)

What an utterly risible response to Putin's invasion of a sovereign state

You may now ask yourself if the £mns the Tory party receives from Putin's cronies is reflected here

Boris Johnson, the Conservative party, and the Vote Leave campaign are traitors.
