Tory MPs, columnists, journalists and commentators absolutely lining up to try to discredit me - almost like they’re frightened of engaging with the actual issues and would rather try to take down the person highlighting them. Interesting how that happens. Keep trying, sunshines.

The PM now has no defence. When he told Parliament that all the rules were followed, he was lying. He hadn’t followed the rules himself and he knew that. He has been fined. Government requires moral authority. He must resign now.

Why we can't stop saying gay, a story On the first day of my senior year of high school, a new boy showed up in my AP English class. He had transferred from a prestigious private school to my public school, and I was confused. I asked him why he moved and he shrugged 1/x

Six months ago, I set out to find out how far I could get in 24 hours by bus from London #bus24. Today - the obvious sequel: #train24. What is the furthest point I can get from St Pancras in 24 hours? I think I know on paper, but there’s some tight connections ahead…
