Slightly random but this goose looks like it means business. Not intimidating at all. 馃槼

Why did the PM appoint Chris Pincher to be Deputy Chief Whip when he was aware of his behaviour? Clue: the apple never falls far from the tree. #BorisJohnsonMustGo

Fascism occurs:- "not just through the terror of police intimidation, but by denying and distorting information, by undermining systems of justice, by paralyzing the education system, and spreading in a myriad subtle ways nostalgia for a world where order reigned." Primo Levi

This Tory government is the most lethally inept, vile and corrupt in modern British history.

Why is it, that we often struggle to tell people how much they really mean to us, when they are alive? If there is someone in your life who is wonderful, eulogise them today. #ThursdayThoughts

Listened to Fr Michael Lapsley (an anti-apartheid campaigner in South Africa) who lost both hands and one eye in a targeted attack, discussing retribution and reparation in a very thought provoking series from @BBCRadio4 What a remarkable man. bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0018nt鈥

Parents tell your kids not to worry about their "A" levels. Gavin Williams fucked up everyone's and is living proof that even a moron can get a knighthood and a 50K a year second job, if he knows when to keep his mouth shut.

Giving Gavin Williamson a 拢50k a year second job is an insult to every working class kid marked down two A-level grades by his class-based algorithm

As the Prime Minister is fond of calling other people names, he should be referred to as Captain Blowjob at all future PMQs.

That Boris Johnson allegedly tried to offer his mistress a top job whilst Foreign Secretary, and that he was also receiving sexual favours from her at his place of work, should be a resigning matter. #Carriegate

Protest is the catalyst that brings about change. Women would not be able to vote today, had it not been for the Suffragettes. Giving the police the power to stop peaceful protests, is the hallmark of an authoritarian country that is moving backwards. #StopBrexit #SteveBray

Its sickening to hear Liz Truss attempting to justify working with authoritarian regimes, who have no regard for human rights. Brexit has put the UK in such a weak bargaining position, that we are now actively wooing the governments of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the UAE.

Many people in this country are having to choose between food and heating. Meanwhile, in a parallel universe, Boris Johnson planned to build a 拢150K tree house for his son at Chequers. We live in a country that is ruled by extreme privilege and shamed by extreme poverty.

In 2020, Russia amended its constitution, allowing its constitutional court the power to overrule judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. Our government has just introduced a draft Bill of Rights to do exactly the same thing.

To anyone watching America right now & thinking the U.K. couldn鈥檛 go into such a dark reverse. Your Government is ripping up all your human rights right now & boasting about it. And they are trying to send traumatised refugees to a police state. It鈥檚 already happening here.
