And there we have it. #Brexit was such a shockingly bad idea that it could only be sold by a LIAR. #BrexitReality

Oi, thicko @JamesCleverly! You living oxymoron. How about introducing a real living wage then.
Minister: We want to help people earn more, through better paid jobs or perhaps more hours, but we understand that won’t fit everyone’s circumstances. Headline: Minister says “Let them eat cake.”

Why oh why did Johnson sign the #NIProtocol if he didn’t like it??? He knew what was in it. What’s his excuse? Stupid? Or downright pernicious? Or BOTH? Either way - sackable offence! Who agrees?

Sorry to bang on about this, but Brandon Lewis has just told the BBC: "It is good to see that we have now got employment at an even higher rate than pre-Covid." ONS figures out today show there are 500,000 fewer people in work than before the pandemic.

Might it have been criminal for May to notify Article 50 in March 2017 after she had been informed that Russian interference and money had rendered the 2016 UK EU Referendum leave vote “not free and fair” ?

Why are prescription charges free in Scotland and Wales? Yet in England we pay? Why is University free in Scotland and Wales, but again in England it costs a fortune? Why is it called the UK when there is sod all United about the way we are governed? Just wondering? 🤔🤬

I wonder how those that voted to leave the EU feel about those 450 million EU citizens that now have far more rights & protections than they do?

"Work more hours or get a better paid job." That's the genius advice from Rachel Maclean - Tory Home Office Minister.
Rachel Maclean: People can protect themselves better from the cost of living crisis "by taking on more hours or moving to a better job" #KayBurley: Some people are working 3 jobs, they're working every hour they can... but they're still having to go to food banks #BBCBreakfast

Rachel Maclean MP earned £84,144 and claimed £218,000 in expenses last year. That's £302,144 and she telling people to move jobs or work more hours. I work four 14 hour shifts in a mental health unit and still struggle with paying everything. #ToryCostOfLivingCrisis #ToriesOut

Sunak knew ordinary people could not afford food or heating when he took £1040 pa off universal credit; gave a tax rise to workers; took £400 off pensioners; gave £4bl to bankers & banked £39bl (from unexpected tax revenues) for the 2024 General Election.

Lee Anderson, the 30p chef/MP has proudly declared on Radio 4 that he is only 'saying what the vast majority of people in this country are thinking'. The ability to conduct national surveys overnight must be one of those strange superpowers that only Tory MPs possess.

The government does nothing while prices soar, living standards plummet and @POFerries lays off hundreds of workers on the spot. 📺 Watch and share why we’re taking to the streets on 18th June. We need a new deal for working people. #CostofLivingCrisis
Enough is enough. Join us in London on June 18 to fight for all our futures.

It's been pointed out a number of times, that around 80% of the issues with the NIP would be solved if the UK could guarantee to keep minimum EU food standards. MINIMUM FOOD STANDARDS FFS! Another thing this government can't be trusted with.
