Early reviews for The Decade In Tory (by Me) 🧵 "Meticulous, brilliant, unstintingly splenetic... Our great-grandchildren will place it alongside Pepys, whose diary they will, correctly, judge much, much less funny." – @Howard_Goodall uk.bookshop.org/books/the-de…

"There is a bleak comedy to the 'inventory of idiocy', and you can't help but laugh as he celebrates it. The Decade In Tory is a bravura performance. Substantial, meticulous, incredible, depressing, hilarious, rude - and essential reading." – @DMinghella

"A wickedly funny, furious, fast-paced romp through a decade of governmental failures" – @RosieisaHolt "Buy it for relatives who read the Daily Mail. It might work as an antidote" – @jemmaforte

Hardback and Kindle, published 27 Oct. Pre-order now from Waterstones, Amazon, and many local and independent booksellers. Or direct from @unbounders for early delivery. (It's also quite thick, so will burn for ages, and is cheaper than fuel) unbound.com/books/the-decade…

I took Baxter to Talacre beach as a change from him just playing with a ball on a nearby field. Within 2 minutes of arrival he found an abandoned ball, and then wouldn't do anything but stand and stare at it. Baxter is a bell-end.

And that's why we put a border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
Music to our ears. The territorial integrity of the United Kingdom is of paramount importance. #LizForLeader 🇬🇧

Important advice from the wise and prophetic Dan Hannan, co-founder of Vote Leave, which delivered a Brexit that took more money out of the economy than Covid, and created unprecedented regulations, tariffs and barriers.
You don’t solve a cost of living crisis by taking even more money out of the economy and giving it to favoured groups. You solve it by removing the regulations, tariffs and barriers that push prices up in the first place.

Congratulations! You can now keep more of the money you haven't got.
"What I'm talking about is enabling people to keep more money in their own pockets" PM hopeful Liz Truss says "we should be on the side of people who do the right thing... people who are contributing to the economy" bbc.in/3BUFE52

That's OK Daniel, I'll just accurately state that @BorisJohnson lied to the Queen on an entirely different timeline
Just saying that later this morning I’ll be blocking all the people on my timeline who responded to this Tweet by falsely stating that @BorisJohnson did lie to The Queen and who haven’t deleted their lying Tweet. (Still calling on @RhonddaBryant to apologise for saying so.)

My book #TheDecadeInTory is (finally) published on 27 Oct. A few things. 1. Sorry it's taken so long. It's out of my hands. 2. I'm going to tweet some promotional stuff about it quite often. It's not about me: the publishers, printers etc have a living to make too. Sorry.

3. I don't set the price. 4. I don't know if there will be an audiobook or paperback. Hopefully, but not my decision 5. I don't have a say about Amazon selling it Hopefully that answers the common questions! Once again, thanks SO much to everyone who pre-ordered.

10m Britons have savings of less than £100. The poorest 25% of households have average savings of just £2000 (scraped together over entire lifetimes). And we're supposed to suddenly find £4000 a year for fuel? I doubt many politicians have yet grasped what's about to happen.

Me too. I'd give anything for the raid not to have happened, and for you to not wake up.
Shocked to wake up and hear about the raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. The deep state truly does exist.
