I can't sleep tonight because I am visiting a friend in a hospice tomorrow. She is 51, has 3 children in their 20's + has terminal cancer. She has lost the use of her legs. I will just cuddle her because what can I say that will help her. This disease is heartbreaking.

I think the Greens are always wide awake, but rarely get consulted on critical political issues due to an unfair voting system. Hence, an unfair assumption about those on the left.

I'm a 50-year-old gay man. I lived through the anti-gay moral panic of the 80s and the many battles against discriminatory legislation and social injustice of the 90s and 2000s, and I'm here to tell you that what is being done to trans people today is what was done to us then.

So we're going to probably have three by-elections in the near future given, the most recent news. It's imperative that the Tories get kicked out in all three.

It's important to note that America and the UK have much in common i.e. the rapid escalation of extremist views. The Uk emulation is a real worry and threat #ToriesOut

The sad thing about our current state of politics is that although the Tories are haemorrhaging support by the day, the actual damage they've inflicted to this country in the last decade will take decades to fix.

Imagine still thinking the Tories are good for this country. The mind boggles.

My youngest son lives in London. He cut his foot on Sunday and went to A and E today as he was concerned. He waited 7 hrs, saw no one, left and dropped his phone in the process-which smashed. One doctor working. Ppl had been there lots longer #NHS destroyed c/o #BrexitShambles

I left A and E last year experiencing the same wait. There is a desperate shortage of doctors and nurses and GP sevices are equally dire #ToriesOut
