1/ #PrimeMinister & #HealthSecretary, I just want to clarify how I can keep myself & my family safe from the #COVID19 surge in cases in our area? I live & work in Newcastle, where cases are now well > 800 per 100,000, a real #COVIDHotSpot! @BorisJohnson @sajidjavid

MPs like @JonesyFay block responses - to prevent people challenging her. Sure investment in our sewage systems is needed. This is not new. Blinks hard at 11yrs Tory. But Brexit led to a shortage of easy accessible chemicals to treat water which is why we are where we are
Deeply misleading. It ignores the massive flaw in the amendment (i.e. forcing taxpayers to pay up to Ā£600billion to dig up Victorian sewerage system) and the work the government is already doing to reduce discharge from storm overflows.

Sometimes a picture really is worth 1000 words. Analysis in 2020 found that privatised water companies paid Ā£57bn in dividends to shareholders since their foundation in 1991 to 2019. Now they say they need better infrastructure to stop piping sewage into rivers, lakes, and sea.

1/When listening to discussions about #Antivax protesters targeting schools & parents, do not forget that #BeverleyTurner has been given a repeated platform on @thismorning to spread dangerous #Antivaxx lies. @Matthew_Wright @ITV @susannareid100 @GMB @adilray @mariannaspring
1/ Dear @thismorning @radioleary & @AlisonHammond Thisā¬‡ļøhas to stop! #BeverleyTurner is spreading yet more reckless, irresponsible & unscientific #COVIDDisinformation. The #CovidVaccine IS NOT A TRIAL DRUG & her words could result in some ppl choosing NOT to be vaccinated.

@richardm56 must find it rather tricky participating in these discussions as he signed the letter from #UsForThemUK to @GavinWilliamson demanding šŸ˜·s be removed from schools. #UsForThemUK are actively trying to dissuade parents from getting their 12-15yr olds vaccinated @GMB. 2/
Well this is interestingā€¦ I didnā€™t know that @richardm56 was a signatory on this letteršŸ‘‡šŸ¼ from #UsForThemUK to the then Education Secretary @GavinWilliamson regarding the use of šŸ˜·s in UK schools? @susannareid100 @DrHilaryJones @benshephard @GMB usforthem.co.uk/open-lettersā€¦ 1/

How can @GMB @thismorning hold their heads up high & say theyā€™ve not given credibility to the #Antivaxx movement by platforming these individuals? @ranvir01 @campbellclaret @MartinSLewis @DrHilaryJones @DrAmirKhanGP @radioleary @AlisonHammond @SunderlandLolly @Jo_WhiteheadUK 3/3

Go on then, Rishi. Where are the extra surgeons, anaesthetists, scrub nurses and ODPs who you'll need to do these millions of operations coming from?

In the light of this I am going to tweet out the fact that my own MP, Alex Chalk, has tested Covid positive No ā€œGood. He deserves itā€ messages, please It diverts from the key anti-PH message that @RishiSunak is sending This is Alex Chalk in a crowded House of Commons Wed
"Sunak refuses to commit to wearing mask in crowded Commons Chancellor also says ā€˜plan Bā€™ Covid measures not needed yet despite expert views to the contrary" Oh, well. Never mind. I'm sure the virus will take heed of his views, and desist. theguardian.com/world/2021/oā€¦

I make no apology for going on about this because it is, literally, a matter of life and death. Today alone: 1. The President of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine says hospitals are struggling to cope due to Covid and A&E departments are terrible places.

Hi @UKLabour @Keir_Starmer I'm not sure if your Comms person is asleep but you've so far tweeted a total of zero times about the raw sewage in our rivers and lakes which has trended for the last 48 hrs. Some sort of at least vague opposition to this would b grand. #StoolBritannia

If UK government decide they need extra scientific help to deal with the Covid-19 crisis, Iā€™m available. Unlike some Oxford professors, Iā€™ve never been asked my opinion on pandemic policy. Unlike some, Iā€™ve never been catastrophically wrong in my predictions either. Just saying.

Covid issues a statement prior to term starting, thanking @educationgovuk and the U.K. for being so accommodating.
PUBLIC STATEMENT FROM THE COVID VIRUS Hi All in the U.K. I just wanted to reach out and thank you for helping me to survive. There was a time you were actively attempting to eradicate me...you almost got there. Iā€™m just trying to survive. I need hosts. Iā€™m willing to adapt.
