Seriously, who gives a flying f**k about a vague chimera called “Growth” when all they can think about this winter is keeping a roof over their heads, feeding themselves, and avoiding freezing to death?
As political messages go, this is a stinker.
Seems SNP supporters are furious at Labour doing much better. I find their logic of ‘it’s just Tories switching to Labour” strange given it’s the SNP that take all 6 Tory seats.
Rather than voting SNP and hoping for a Labour Govt, just vote for it.
Suella Braverman who yesterday got breathlessly excited at the thoughts of sending plane loads of refugees to Rwanda, also said “too many people rely on benefits.” Last year she claimed £4,815 in expenses just for her second home. A person on UC gets £4,018 for an entire year.

- from Tom Burgis’ book Kleptopia. Any similarities to the actions of this Tory administration - are entirely illuminating.

Orwellian “Brexit Freedoms Bill” takes wrecking ball to nature & rides roughshod over devolution settlement
“Make Brexit work” won’t cut it - let’s seek to rejoin EU when political situation is favourable & right terms available. Me for @MetroUK👇
Forcibly snapping the conference lanyard off someone's neck is neither a good look nor the first priority when dealing with a security breach of this nature?...at least not many people are watching though eh? #Torypartyconference#liztruss#greenpeace
IMO Musk is one of the biggest existential risks to tech, especially its reputation. But his followers just seem to be a bunch of wannabes who can't code. People who want to be rich from tech before they've even started doing it. The difference is, most weren't born into wealth.
Disagree to an extent. I look at a lot of his supporters and don't see actual tech people, just people who've bought Tesla shares. The same sort of people who message devs on LinkedIn asking them to code their amazing new app for free.
Joking aside, Elon Musk and Muskitties who worship him arguing Ukraine should settle is revelatory of the tech bro mindset that’s ravaged the world. You see repeated statements in the threads about “this isn’t about right and wrong, it’s about an optimal solution.”
Coincidences happen but this is a striking one: this isn’t just an outfit worn by Emma Thompson’s populist PM. It’s the outfit she’s wearing in the scene where she introduces concentration camps to Britain.
As styling goes: *yikes*.
It’s astonishing how confident Pork Markets is in her (non-existent) abilities. She seems like she’s gliding through all this carnage, completely oblivious to her role in creating it, thinking she’s doing great for the country. Shows how deadly hubris can be in politics.
So it has begun, the slow drip call of, 'Bring back Johnson.' Under no circumstances must he be allowed to hold any form of public office ever again. He is a charlatan and should be in prison for crimes against the state. We do well to never forget this.
The Conservative party is the anti-growth coalition, they supported the hardest #Brexit possible outside of no-deal, Boris Johnson told us what the tories thought of enterprise when he said 'fuck business' being outside of the SM/CU has destroyed growth in the UK, simple as that.
