Never give an inch to the Upside-Down! Mood since June '16: 😱😱😱 Left 🇬🇧 for 🇮🇪 on the good ship Ulysses, Dec 2018. Does my bum look big in this ermine?

Brilliant explainer on long COVID & post-viral syndromes, showing the virus as an “energy thief” that persists in cell powerhouses, and why exertion as rehab can be a terrible approach for some. Also describes how, for some, even digesting food qualifies as exertion. @PutrinoLab
Time for a 🧵 about metabolically-led post-exertional symptoms. This is quite possibly the most dangerously misunderstood piece of #LongCovid, #MECFS and infection-associated chronic illness puzzle (including non-viral pathologies that involve mitochondrial damage). (1/n)

Anyone who's been through a crisis, perhaps the sudden illness of a family member, will know there is a process of normalisation, because you can't live in an acute state of crisis forever. You get used to it. Please god, let's not normalise what they've done to this country.

Why is parliament not reconvening? This crisis is more important that party conferences. Ideally a vote of no confidence must be held. Who in their right mind can have confidence in Truss and her government after this? #GeneralElectionNow

It’s hard to overstate how scared people are right now. Filming in North Tyneside today, the first 2 people I met - a shopkeeper of 30 years who said he may have to close, and a working 60 year old who can’t pay her energy bill - burst into tears when I asked how they’re coping.

Truss just endorsed her after tipping off financial speculators that now is the ideal time to rip off the citizens who are at your mercy. They are worse than real Nazis; fuckers who play with that vile shit for their own dumb, selfish ends.
The idea that "our rooted family and national identity is being undermined to make us perfect slaves at the mercy of financial speculators" rings, I have to say, an uncomfortable bell.

I pick them up on dog walks with poo bags. Big Clive put me on the right track and I use them to make battery-backed Zigbee repeaters. Because I’m weird like that. invidious.fdn.fr/N65DpT2nqEI

(5/11) On taking office, she showed that this was not rhetoric, she was deadly serious. Her ‘Energy Plan’ protects energy giants' £170 billion windfall profits, and forces British families to pay for them… 99-percent.org/trussed-up/

Thread (1/11) Truss has been in the cabinet for 12 years and is co-responsible for the damage done to the UK over that time. But in just 2 weeks, she has dramatically accelerated the destruction. This thread looks at what she ‘offers’ to the UK and what we can do about it.

I've written to @trussliz demanding an emergency recall of Parliament following the disastrous Tory budget. The UK economy is in crisis. All of us will pay the price as interest rates, mortgages and the cost of goods rise. MPs should be in parliament holding the govt to account

You thought Tories were just for the 1%, but that was ridiculous. They're actually for the 0.1%, and I can't believe you didn't see that one coming. #Newnight #KamiKwasi
Replying to @D_Burgherr
Only 10% of the gain from cutting the 45p rate goes to people with incomes of £150-250k. *Two thirds* go to those with incomes over £500k. That’s about 50k people = top 0.1% of UK adults. Even more striking: almost *half* of total tax saving goes to ‘income millionaires’.
