Here's Boris Johnson last October describing fears about surging inflation as "unfounded". Today inflation hit a 40-year high.

The fact that the government negotiated the protocol is not just a gotcha point for journalists. It's not just a question of saying 'we told you so'. It goes to the heart of the prime minister's honesty and capacity for effective governance.

Why is the New York Times more engaged in uncovering the law-breaking of the UK Government than most of our media?

What the Ministry of Truth forgets to mention of course is that beaches which start failing simply get delisted and are therefore not counted anymore. The perfect way to maintain an almost 100% record.
🌊The 2022 #bathingseason starts today! A record 94.7% of bathing waters are today classed as good and excellent. Check out #Swimfo to find your nearest bathing area: environment.data.gov.uk/bwq/…

I see Sajid Javid says he is freezing prescription charges “to put money back in people’s pockets”. How does that work then?

Gloves off. Lawyer instructed. 732,000 views and climbing. Daubney, Anderson, Fox and co are playing a very expensive game of chicken with someone who has a proven track record of crossing this particular road without fear nor favour. Good luck, boys.

He didn't cook a meal for 30p, he cooked a lot of meals for £50. If you only have a tenner in your purse/wallet to last you 2 weeks then you can't spend £50 on ingredients. Typical Tory thinking. 🤦‍♂️

Anyway I’m bloody knackered and off to bed. I’ll write more about this some other time, probably. But if you’re more mad about having a modicum of mild privilege pointed out than you are about inequality and injustice, then maybe you’ve got your outrage priorities wrong. Maybe.
