BREAKING: The Government has broken yet another manifesto promise. Today Labour can reveal a whopping ยฃ70 million stealth cut to disability support buried in the Budget. People who rely on that help deserve honesty from ministers, not smoke and mirrors. mirror.co.uk/news/politics/dโ€ฆ

This should be all over the front pages. The government's terminating our right to protest, through amendments sneaked into the Police Bill at the last minute. It's the biggest assault on democracy in 70+ years, and hardly anyone seems to know. My column theguardian.com/commentisfreโ€ฆ

Guys you realise while we are all being pissed off at Borisโ€™s Parties over Christmas, that dictatorial policing bill that will jail us for 51weeks if we protest is not being discussed.

For me, wearing a mask is a sign of respect. For life.

In some countries, COVID has resulted in weird division about who is 'healthy' & who has 'underlying health issues.' 'Acceptable' & 'unacceptable' deaths. People w/asthma, cancer, hypertension, diabetes, overweight, heart disease -> they're our family, our friends, our community.

The Government spent 3x the starting salary for an NHS nurse on topping up their wine cellar in 2019-20, up from ยฃ47K the year before. While we all needed help getting through 2020, with wines averaging ยฃ17.25 a bottle, they've certainly got expensive taste! ๐Ÿท๐ŸŽ„#DuffDealDecember

Any country that following a 'wait and see' strategy really needs to sit up and prepare for omicron. Complacency is not an option...

EXCL: Venue bosses say vaccine passports were NOT checked at Steps gig linked to 6 Omicron cases. Spokesman says the concert did not meet the criteria - at least 500 people standing, or 10k overall. But venue refusing to say how many were there. thescottishsun.co.uk/news/scโ€ฆ

โ€œWhilst working late one evening before Xmas, myself and several hundred Conservative colleagues became trapped in a function room with nothing to survive on but alcoholic drinks. I also broke the button on the roomโ€™s stereo device and was unable to switch of the Xmas music ..โ€

Today I visited a hairdresserโ€™s & booked an appointment. Concerned that she wasnโ€™t wearing a mask, I asked if she was vaccinated. She said no, and claimed 3 people she was close to had died from having the vaccineโ€™. I knew this couldnโ€™t be true. I cancelled the appointment.

LONG THREAD on masks. Mute if not interested. Do masks work? Why do some people claim they donโ€™t work? Do they cause harm? What kinds of masks should we wear? How does masking need to change now we know that Covid is airborne? When can we stop wearing them? Get your popcorn. 1/

They partied as my mother lay dying, alone over Christmas, of Covid. We obeyed the rules and didnโ€™t visit in order to ensure we didnโ€™t spread the virus to others.
UK journalists should hang their heads in shame for today allowing Government Ministers to blag & spin their way out of the No 10 Christmas party scandal You could not have a party in December 2020 & comply with rules which said you cannot have a party! How hard can this be!!!

๐Ÿ’ฅ Calling NHS & care staff ๐Ÿ’ฅ Today the @metpoliceuk commissioner Dame Cressida Dick told @LBC she needed a letter of complaint in order to investigate 10 Downing Street's alleged lockdown-breaking Christmas parties. Pls consider signing this letter (link below). Pls share.

Matt Hancock thought he could hide behind redacted documents. Luckily we kept the receipts. RT so everyone knows.
