it's all about politics these days - it's exhausting. I'm all for 'love the sinner, hate the sin' but the bloody Tories are really pushing their luck atm.

Things that are legal: Giving ยฃbillions to mates in PPE contracts, breaking lockdown rules, lying to Parliament, asking Tory donors to pay my bills, giving public money to women Iโ€™m shagging. Things that are illegal: Protesting against the government #RightToProtest Steve Bray

Welcome to Tory Britain โ€“ where we break international law inside Parliament and arrest people for complaining about it outside Parliament.

Funny how a load of Tory MPs who spend all day braying and jeering like schoolboys should pass a law to stop one man pointing out what a bunch of wankers they are.

Dominic Raab wonโ€™t approve but I did indeed go the opera last week (it cost me ยฃ62). Tom Eisner, a working-class lad from Buxton near where I grew up kindly invited me. Heโ€™s been playing violin at Glyndebourne for 36 years. Never let anyone tell you youโ€™re not good enough. ๐ŸŽป

No one wants to use the 'f' word, but when a govt refuses to fund Literature beyond a basic level, then we've pretty much arrived at the door marked "Fascism". Why? Because empathy is the enemy of fascism and literature asks us to see the world through different eyes.
'Why would an English government want to stop people studying English Literature?' Chilling indeed @mrjamesob

Like countless other criminal barristers today I will be joining in strike action. We don't want to do it. It goes against every instinct not to go to court to deal with a case. But the system is dying and the worst I've ever seen it. Good luck to all participating.

Well you couldnโ€™t ask for a more accurate description of Brexit in one tweet. Incredibly wealthy person tells huge whopper to screw over millions of ordinary folk. #BrexitLies #LOSER
I couldnโ€™t care less about your small personal inconvenience. Returning democracy to the U.K. is more important

NHS crisis caused by Tory underfunding not Covid, say doctors. Retweet if you agree with the doctors

We all know that the changes, proposed by Johnson, to the WA is illegal. Here's another voice - another expert - explaining why.
Back from idyll of holidaying in Perigord, I've now forced myself to catch up on UKโ€™s Northern Ireland Protocol Bill. Short thread with some critical thoughts (few should come as any surprise, but itโ€™s useful to add oneโ€™s voice to the existing consensus of expert opinion):

Vote tactically to #GTTO then campaign for PR to keep them out.
To everyone complaining that Labour is moving too far to the centre/right. The majority of the UK electorate isn't as left wing as you. So the Labour Party you want, can't get a majority. Your best option is Proportional Representation so a true left wing party can thrive.

If Boris Johnson served three terms I actually wouldn't mind. So long as that meant in prison!

So heโ€™s not a vote winner and he didnโ€™t get Brexit done and he hasnโ€™t turned us into a high wage economy and he didnโ€™t fix social care and he isnโ€™t a low tax PM and he hasnโ€™t made us โ€œGlobal Britainโ€and heโ€™s a liar and the buck never stops with him. So, why is he still there?
