History may look back at the period in which we are living and call it The Great Regression. It is a time in which on issue after issue, we are seeing decades and sometimes centuries of progress reversed. We have never seen anything like this before in our history.
According to our esteemed Attorney General, people should effectively be banned from ever deciding to vote for another party if it means hers won't win. She says its 'dishonest', yet she happily supports a man who cheated while his wife underwent cancer treatment. Yeah, sit down!
Important thread. Rishi Sunak's "windfall tax" on North Sea oil & gas profits is *not* a windfall tax. It's a giant tax avoidance scheme designed to drive an expansion in fossil fuel extraction. As the climate emergency accelerates.
Need more proof that the UK Gov is beholden to the oil & gas industry?
It's just announced a 1 WEEK public consultation on a deeply flawed windfall tax law that is a centrepiece of its response to a historic cost of living crisis. Here's why that's unacceptable & unlawful:
I just can’t get over the idea that in America - AMERICA! - a group of 6 people can impose their own extremist religious views on an entire population by unilaterally changing the law. I thought the whole point of America was that this couldn’t happen.
They want us to let them get on with the job…
Like the “bonfire of EU laws” that will set us free
LBC asked Rees-Mogg to give us an example of one such rule…
This was his moment
And this was all he had…

A month ago I was travelling back from Bournemouth and noticed a child sitting alone. To keep it short: I raised my concerns to the guard, explaining what I had witnessed and overheard. The guard chatted to and then sat with the boy until they reached London where he was met by..
Conservative MP Scott Benton celebrates the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade. In 22 states, that means near-immediate abortion bans.
There are men in our Parliament who’d take women’s rights back to the Victorian era if they could.
Sexually incontinent moral delinquents like Trump & Johnson are so completely devoid of decency that irredeemable shitbags like Moylan can ride all the way to the House of Lords on their filthy coat tails. Don't think for a moment that our UK can't follow where a broken USA leads
If you’re against abortion, don’t get one.
If you’re against contraception, don’t take any.
If you’re against same-sex relationships, don’t have one.
If you’re against same-sex marriage, don’t marry someone of same gender.
Do not impose your beliefs & religion on all Americans.
Where the Republicans go the Tories follow. We take the right to abortion, contraception, gay rights and same-sex marriage for granted now. We shouldn't. Very soon Tory think tanks will have their sights on all of them. Fascism is on the march.
The Honiton & Tiverton result is stunning, Wakefield gratifying. Apart from the obviously delusional & besotted, it’s hard to see how anyone can continue to defend Lebedev’s lawbreaking lapdog by lying about vaccines or pretending that any other PM would have helped Ukraine less.
I can’t believe BBC News is losing people like Maitlis, O’Brien and Goodall, passing over people like Derbyshire, Young, and Atkins, and promoting Bruce, Urban and Mason. Beige voxpop TV, passionate about “balance”, but agnostic about the truth.
So Labour's @simonlightwood wins Wakefield with a 12.6% swing (huge) from the Tories.
Keir Starmer's party has a 4,925 majority, which is way better than expected & a result that can't be dismissed as mere dissatisfaction with Boris Johnson
