I grew up hungry, poor, hiding from the Provident man, writing affordable lists to Father Christmas, wearing a worn hand me down blazer for five years of school. I grew up in a tiny council house on the fringes of Felsted School which is around £13k per term
I received free school meals or I’d have gone hungry, I was relentlessly bullied by rich kids at my comprehensive school in a rich area. In the village I grew up in, if crimes were committed by the private school kids (and they were) local poor kids would routinely be blamed.

Update: The No 10 TikTok account has turned off comments and stitch replies due to the sheer volume of people handing Johnson his arse.
Oh looks like comments are back on but seems only followers can see all of them now, but you still cannot duet or stitch. Here are a few of the comments.

People need to realise those using social media for activism are just people that hate the Tories. There’s no crazy conspiracy, we just met other people doing the same stuff.
Also we are human beings with feelings and abuse is damaging, regardless of our number of followers.
I make videos in my lounge, since day one I’ve had threats and abuse. I considered closing my accounts today out of fear for my safety after I discovered a Twitter user took pics of me covertly at an event and told their followers I’m a fascist. It’s going too far now.

Predictions. Tories will vote for Johnson in VONC to keep seat/get a spot in the cabinet. He’ll hold until summer then gamble on a GE before fuel crisis in autumn. By then they’d have rigged elections, brainwashed and divided with more gaslighting.
They are all detestable shits.
Even after all this they won’t kick him out, prob not even after Wakefield by-election. He’s their meal ticket and their job is a route to make money from abusing their position. Like he gambled with our lives he’ll take a punt at securing power again and we’ll be truly fucked.

A few thoughts I've had recently, re politics.
1. I used to think that everyone that voted Leave/ Tory was thick and racist, seeing the scale of interference, lies and manipulation associated with Vote Leave and the 2019 election changed that, both were cons fronted by a fraud.
2. Johnson's regime took the concept of a tribal media to the extreme, using favoured outlets to smear/ float policy and bypass process. Even the BBC repeated Tory slogans/ lies, esp. during a health crisis. Their influence esp. on election outcomes is a threat to democracy.

Peter Hennessy and Archbishop Welby are right, Johnson is a threat to all of us.
Tory MP John Redwood (of Wokingham, ironically) defended the indefensible, then accused an archbishop of creating division for criticising a policy designed to divide, on Easter Sunday.
This cycle of shameless behaviour will wear thin, eventually. It’s staring to play out like a bizarre, yet entirely predictable, poorly acted soap opera.
People will see through it and eventually search for the truth. The moment that happens, it’s all over for them.

If more people read The Assault on Truth by Oborne, there would be far fewer Tory voters.
Johnson isn’t just lying, he’s destroying our democracy. He makes every MP look deceitful which inflames the “they’re all the same” fallacy, which benefits the Tories, and on it goes…
Not every MP is dishonest, none compare to Johnson’s propensity for compulsive, damaging lies, another fallacy is “there is no opposition” there absolutely is. It’s just the opposition doesn’t lie to the public and isn’t a carefully constructed brand or “celebrity politician.”

I’m sick of poor people being treated like their lives mean nothing. Meritocracy is a myth.
The biggest scroungers in the UK are those with posh voices, many are in ministerial positions taking thousands in expenses.
Jeremy Kyle is a piece of shit.
This is a shocking documentary. Not least because of the classism and obvious vulnerability of the participants.
Kyle berating addicts and the producers telling people to fight for a hospital bed was despicable.
They should be in jail for what they did. They destroyed people.

Carole Cadwalladr is an unbelievably courageous journalist.
It’s no surprise that she’s ostracised by news networks and most of the mainstream media for telling the truth, but it’s incredibly depressing.
They don’t just deliberately cover their own eyes, but ours too.
I read an article about Peter Oborne (@OborneTweets) someone that was considered to be a traditional Tory, he was similarly shunned after being critical of the Johnson regime. He delivered a copy of his book The Assault on Truth to the speaker, if I remember correctly.

I want my country back, this isn’t who we are. We are not the National Front style Conservative policy.
We are not the hostile environment, we are not Windrush, we are not the Sewell Report, we are not the Nationality and Borders Bill, we are not vote leave.
This is the government making decisions, not the people. If we had a system that accurately reflected how we voted, not compromised by Russian interference, we would not have this government and this policy.
Most of us did not vote for them. Many of us are better than this.

Might want to change the info on your own website then. That’s where I found it. I tried to call that number, wouldn’t connect.
Chess is easier than seeking help and I’m not fleeing a war zone, also my first language is English.
This is the info you need to change to the correct free number, unless you already did this prior to replying to me.

I loathe the Conservatives and not even I imagined they’d party at No10 during the worst health crisis in recent history.
Johnson is a shameless example of all that is wrong with the Tory party.
It’s one rule, one law that applies to them, another for the rest of us.
Yes, this has upset me, The revelations have a significant impact on the fragile mental health people that have been in survival mode for TWO fucking years. Those that are grieving. Those that have lost precious years indoors instead of living, falling in love, making memories.

I’m at my wits end. I’m wondering if there is any point in making videos anymore.
My views are sky high on TikTok, I’m reaching 100,000s, they’re seeing whats going on, often for the first time, it’s less of an echo chamber.
However, seeing nothing change is horrifying.
The toll it takes is severe. I feel like screaming out of pure rage most days.I’ve been immersed in politics for the past year.
Why? The UK deserves better.
Those contesting the Tories are real patriots, not those robbing the country blind whilst killing their population.

The Foreign Sec. filibustered a Foreign Affairs Select Committee, designed to hold the govt. to account for a disastrous practical and moral failure, Afghanistan.
He ran down the clock, refused to provide information. Truly contemptible.
I had to take four days off in Aug due to Carbon Monoxide poisoning. I used up my 10 days of paid sick leave with stress and a tummy bug this year.
Four days of SSP is £19.27.
I am so angry I could cry. On what planet is that realistic?
I work full time and barely manage.
My stress was severe so my GP wanted to sign me off for 3 weeks, but I couldn’t afford take time off. I just had to go back with no support as there’s no NHS mental health service.
I’m one of the lucky ones as my landlord is great, if he wasn’t though…
Yeah. This is England.

I just ran in to the garden and yelled “F*** off!” at the boy cat that keeps fighting my cats, and threw a stone to scare it away.
On my way back inside I looked to my right and saw three generations of the sweet Gurkha family that live next door, looking on, in silent horror.
The family moved in recently, they have made the garden in to a beautiful sanctuary. I envy the amazing cooking smells that waft in daily, I was going to ask them for recipes, well, I think I’ve truly fecked my chances.
I, of course, apologised profusely. They just nodded.

My tweet about Plymouth and male violence resulted in male abuse (predictably) they argue semantics, fail to address the problem in men that causes violence. They defensively attack the women pointing out the problem.
Every time I speak out, I get threats, which proves my point.
I have had lovely comments from Plymouth residents on my wide reaching TikTok about this, women strongly agree, so do some men. Then theres guys that lash out in anger (obviously) because attacking women is a default. Abusing the messenger get doesn’t make the point inaccurate

This made my stomach turn.
#Windrush is a horrifying indictment of just how far this government is willing to go to appease the far right and retain power.
This little more than a vote winner to them.
We must resist, fight and drag our country out of the slurry.
I want to clarify my position. I dislike not having a clear standpoint, this will be a thread.
In relation to Corbyn’s Labour, I supported him wholeheartedly. I was a big advocate for his manifesto and vision for Labour, was horrified, furious about the MSM smears and saboteurs.
I think JC is demonstrably a good man, was cheated, but he was a Euro sceptic. He failed to handle Brexit appropriately and could be stubborn, to the point of arrogance at times. He was not perfect but he’d have been a solid PM, unfortunately he was not elected. So he resigned.
