This is getting beyond a joke. My timeline recently is full of vile right wing Tories, saying awful things. It’s because the odd one of my followers, or someone I follow, follow them. It’s absurd & unsustainable. Have they changed the algorithm in anticipation of the takeover?

The Tories will be relieved, their conference is over and people will forget all about mortgage rates, energy costs, food prices and debt. The future’s bright for the Tories. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Can @trussliz please explain how pushing the typical two year fixed rate mortgage to more than 6% stimulates growth?
Replying to @faisalislam
NEW Typical two year fixed rate mortgage has topped 6% for first time in 14 years… now 6.07% according to Moneyfacts via @Peacheyk

Gordon Brown, very impressive on @BBCr4today. Followed by the abysmal, hilarious. James Cleverly. Very cruel, but he’s too thick to see it. He probably thinks he performed well. 🤡😂😂😂

Self obsessed James Cleverly can’t stop saying “look at me I’m the foreign secretary. I travel around the world on aeroplanes. I’m the foreign secretary you know”. Patronising twelve too.

I can (maybe) understand someone reluctantly (and wrongly) supporting the Rwanda policy as a necessary evil, but I can’t understand someone actively celebrating it. That takes a particularly cruel personality.

Johnson banked on a cataclysmic royal event to keep him in No 10. Sadly for him, he missed it by days. We now hear Tories predicting a change in their fortunes, but only if Putin nukes Ukraine. These murderers see nuclear war as a potential game changer for the Tory party.

Hearing Liz Truss being interviewed on @BBCr4today . Makes Kwarteng’s interview seem first class. His now seems less like a car crash and more like his car needs a bit of a screen wash top up. She’s indescribably bad. 😱
Oh come of it @BBCRadio4 PM . A vox pop of Tories leaving the Tory conference. Surprise surprise, they show unanimity in their support for @KwasiKwarteng, but we all know only the hardline loyalists turned up at the conference. #bbcpm

Don’t get too carried away Labour supporters. Yes there have been some good recent polls for Labour, but beware, some of them are only showing a 23/24 point lead over the Tories. 😂😂

The skills minister in the government who have been in charge for 12 years ladies and gentlemen. I assume she doesn't want medical treatment from a doctor or nurse qualified in the last 12 years in case they try and put her in Hufflepuff

"The current system would rather our young people get a degree in Harry Potter studies, than in construction," says Higher Education Minister Andrea Jenkyns, who says that universities are feeding students "a diet of critical race theory, anti British history and Social Marxism."

Poor service from @TPExpressTrains . Booked tickets via Trainline, who emailed on day of travel, saying our train was cancelled. Ended up on a later train, lost our reserved seats and had a horrendous journey to Liverpool. TPE saying info we got from Trainline not TPEs problem.

Appalling service and will never use @TPExpressTrains again. Am going to take it up with the Transport minister and regulator. Will provide regular updates. Am telling everyone I know, don’t use TPE, they couldn’t care less about their customers.

Of course the “cancelled” train, which we didn’t get, ended up running anyway. Both @thetrainline and @TPExpressTrains blaming each other and won’t take responsibility.
