@thecarolemalone @allisonpearsonPatronising? How clever of you to notice etc. Arrogant? An easy charge but sure, whatever. But misogynistic? Hmmmm... I keep staring at my tweet and trying to identify the bit about gender. Can't see it. Perhaps you can help me out, Carole. (That's the patronising bit.)

@allisonpearson But while we’re at it, classy to raise my dead mother. I think a lot of people know what Claire Rayner would have thought if Boris Johnson and those who defend him. Then again she is, as I say, very dead. And we are all here.

@allisonpearson She too would have hated Corbyn as I do. His leadership has ushered in an era of massive anti Semitic abuse some of which I’ve received. But she was also a campaigner against domestic abuse and people ignoring it. i know exactly where she would have been on today’s issue.

This is a very simple - even simplistic - tweet. Dear we don’t want you to visit Britain. Please don’t come. We don’t like you. At all. Go to Miami. You’ll be much happier there. RT if you too don’t want Trump to come here.

For decades I have, as a Jew, wondered how totalitarian, bigoted regimes rise to power. How does a population of ordinary, decent people allow it? Then I watch someone like once a great liberal campaigning journalist, suck up to Trump and I think ‘oh. That’s how.’

The two of you have both made a terrible mistake here. You've have confused me knowing you, with holding either of you in any regard whatsoever. And Toby, if I'd done something so terrible that you coming to my aid might help, I'd deserve to be left for dead.

I feel bitching from the sidelines isn’t constructive so here’s my Norway Plus option: customs union, single market, free movement, pay in to budget, abide by regs BUT crucially, also have say over those regs. But instead of calling it Norway Plus we call it membership of the EU.
