Boris Johnson wants to axe 91,000 civil service jobs to "save the tax payer £3.5 billion a year". To put that in perspective, Dido Harding's test and trace budget could have funded those jobs for over a decade. The Tories always have money for their mates.

Why does Parliament have a bar? Is there a single, valid reason for providing our lawmakers with subsidised alcohol while they are working? I’m not looking for joke replies, I’m being serious. Why are our lawmakers allowed to get pissed at work at our expense?

Baobab, a prehistoric species which predates both mankind and splitting of continents over 200 million years ago. Native to African savannah where climate is extremely dry and arid, it is a symbol of life and positivity in a landscape where little else can thrive.

A German F1 driver = more eloquent, more articulate, more intelligent and more honest than any gaslighting UK government minister who has been on there for years.
I’m so chuffed to have managed to get Seb Vettel on BBC #QuestionTime & I’m so proud of the way he answered questions in his 2nd language about the politics of a country in which he doesn’t live. Here he is talking common sense about Brexit. #BBCQT
