What's George's opportunist thought now? Horrid little tike. #TheArchers
Oh dear, imagine staying at Brookfield as a guest. #TheArchers

#GeneralElectionNow trending on Twitter. No surprise there. We are in an absurd and risky situation. No way should the country be subjected to this ridiculous Tory pantomime. #bbcpm

#WhereisthePM is trending on Twitter. This a major embarrassment for them at a time of national crisis. #bbcpm

Is this chap speaking down a long pipe? #wato

How does the government feel about this @bankofengland intervention? They were thinking of bring it under govt control, weren't they? #wato
Are you going to comment on #LizTruss being Awol, @Sarah_Montague? Early days for emulating her predecessor. #wato

Why does Sarah think the #IMF acted oddly? #wato

Ahem, @sarah_Montague, I hope your piece on wild swimming will cover what seems to be a conspiracy of silence, that is the dangerous #pollution of many #rivers and waterways. #wato

It was a short-term Grant Shapps gimmick but the 'rail sale' was a great thing, enabling many of us to go 1st class for (for once) at a reasonable fare. You could once do this on Virgin on the West coast route, but not on the hopeless and expensive @AvantiWestCoast. #youandyours
This chap can be commended for beating the absurd train fare to Barrow but not for his carbon footprint. #youandyours
Disgraceful for a PM, especially one so recently 'elected' to disappear just when the going gets tough, not that it hasn't been tough for a long time. #wato
Where is Liz Truss? In a fridge? Leading from the back as the world burns?
#youandyours Never fail to be struck by how many brands which have let customers down badly assume they have 'get their trust back'. Quite often, I suspect, it would be curtains for any hope of that.
#KeirStarmer very patient with Martha's gotcha interviewing style. #r4today

#BorisJohnson trending again...... but here's a good point. #r4today
The only advantage of Boris Johnson’s pathological narcissism was that it subordinated political ideology. You can’t say that about Truss and Kwarteng. These people really believe what they’re doing and they’re going to keep doing it. In the end, that’s what’s fucking terrifying.
Of course Martha immediately 'reminds' Starmer that Labour once had to call in the #IMF but now she cites opponents of that view, like John Redwood. You could not make it up, as if he has any credibility. #r4today

How arrogant and deluded that #KwasiKwarteng and co think they can 'reassure the markets' after everything they've presided over for years and the latest disastrous move. #r4today

Sitting on the ward and I have patients desperate to get home but we can’t get care. They’ve worked all their lives. Meanwhile our chancellor is giving millionaires tax breaks. It’s so unfair, this would fund an army of careers. The UK is broken and it stinks… 😞

Are local councillors involved in town twinning arrangements still going on jollies? #r4today
