An extremely important story from @kapaterson out today in @HolyroodDaily. Great to see @scvotweet's @KirstenHogg calling for better support for our third sector, challenging the Scottish Government on funding and planning for the future. Read more: bddy.me/3zO3CMB

BREAKING: CEPR joins 70+ international economists & experts asking @POTUS to #UnfreezeAfghanistan's $7B in central bank reserves held in US banks. This policy is immoral, unjust and punishes the people of Afghanistan for a government they did not choose. reut.rs/3p7bFiH

A lot to be encouraged by in this thread for Labour, but they'll have to convince the public that Keir Starmer would be 'a good prime minister' to make gains
NEW from @IpsosUK: Public think a Labour govt led by Starmer more likely than a Con govt led by Truss to deliver in 12 / 13 areas. Biggest leads for Starmer's Labour on improving public services (+13), reducing NHS waiting times (+12), levelling up (+12), fresh start (+10)

When it comes to pay, and its effect on inflation, why does the public debate always focus on the wages of those in the bottom 50% and never on those in the top 50%?

Annual leave, however, does end so now I'm back. Wouldn't want to work for J Jonah Jameson anyway
