1/45 (yes, 45…). Last week, I gave a speech at the Society of Editors. There's been some interest in it so, if you'll indulge me, I thought I'd post it here. I was asked to talk on ‘future of news’. Once I’d cleared up that I definitely don’t know that, I launched in…

It’s not easy to get down to work these days, particularly with everything that’s going on in the world and you’re trying to work from home. The best approach is to create a To Do List of small tasks which are achievable and realistic, such as the one which forms today’s poem.

We've lost quite a few followers for being critical of Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak breaking the law. But NHS staff have never needed support more, so please follow and RT if you remain right behind us.

1/12 We - Russia - want to be a nation of peace. Alas, few people would call us that now.

⚡️Russian lawmakers of Gagarinsky municipal district in Moscow called Russia’s invasion of Ukraine “a disaster." “This is a path to the degradation and impoverishment of the country. No other actions could cause more damage to the Russian economy,” reads the appeal.

Received a seemingly Kosher message via NHS App saying I had been in contact with positive Covid and need specific PCR Omicron test, asking for details including credit card to pay 3.99 for processing. This is a scam to get card details so ignore and delete if you get it.

“Around 5.5 million families were hit by the £20-a-week cut to Universal Credit. So, over 3.6 million of them, including many sick and disabled people, are still worse off – because the changes to Universal Credit will only affect 1.9 million people” thecanary.co/uk/analysis/202…

We are speaking to many MPs at the moment about NHS privatisation. We’re told frequently ‘my constituents don’t mind private companies running NHS services’. Do you mind? 🚨 If you mind, pls RT 💙

Governments know how to fix climate change - they just need to act, like the incredible orangutan in this film, defending his home from a digger. Do retweet if you'd like your government to act decisively, ahead of the UN climate conference. Thanks! invidious.fdn.fr/PeLcKYj5k1Y

I will reiterate. No-one is pro-lockdown. Lockdowns are a last resort when other interventions have failed or not been taken. The only people who (implicitly) advocate for lockdowns are those who explicitly advocate for us to do nothing in the face of rising cases.

They don't really care about the environment. My MP Andrew Griffith (@griffitha) is COP26's net-zero business champion. He just voted for more raw sewage to be dumped by water companies. #Marr

I get told frequently by Conservative MPs that the public aren’t bothered about private companies running NHS services and making a profit. I don’t think this is correct. If you would like profit-making to be removed from the NHS, pls RT. Let’s see!

I used to edit Page 1 stories for the Chicago Tribune, including many from Washington. In this thread, I explain why the media (including me) have been unintentionally complicit in the rise of fascism that threatens our democracy. 1/9

Virgin Care have been given a seat on a local Integrated Care System. Private health firms should be blocked from taking seats on local health boards making decisions about area health needs. RT if you agree.
