Breaking Scoops

By refusing to raise the debt limit, @HouseGOP  & @SenateGOP  are refusing to vote for: ❌Paying our troops ❌Social Security & Medicare payments ❌Child Tax Credit payments ❌Protecting 6 million jobs They’re holding hostage our troops, our seniors, our kids, and our livelihoods.

Student debt has become not a ladder up, but an anchor weighing Americans down—making it harder to start a family, buy a home, and live with financial independence. President Biden can #CancelStudentDebt  and provide relief to the millions of borrowers drowning in debt.

The American people deserve a thorough investigation into @facebook ’s willingness and eagerness to mislead the public about the risks of their own products.

Remind me what the whole point of Brexit was again, @BorisJohnson .

This should be a bombshell report. A letter from recently retired U.S. border patrol chief warns Congress is getting factually incorrect information. To say the border is closed is a lie. This administration is denying reality and it's dangerous to our nation.

@PresElectBid  #UNGA76n  before : I’m here today to share with you how the United States intends to work with partners and allies to answer these questions and the commitment of my new administration to help lead the world toward a more peaceful, prosperous future for all people.

The author of the Trump Coup Memo did a big right wing media tour just before 1/6. I think it's a big problem that right wing media outlets are helping launder and elevate elaborate bad-faith legal theories designed to fake-justify overturning elections:

Scoops of the Week

hey @michaelgove  instead of removing Local Government from your Dept’s title & replacing it with vague Tory soundbite, how about reversing the 50% cuts to Local Govt inflicted in last decade & reopening youth centres, libraries & other vital services?

#Marr says let’s talk about climate crisis, “as some people call it”. Yes, those people are the worlds scientists, the UN, and most governments - why the coyness? We face a #ClimateEmergency  & have no hope of addressing it unless we start by recognising it

Hey @michaelgove  - now you're Housing Secretary will you give back the £120k you've had from property developers this year alone? Just declaring a blatant conflict of interest doesn't remove it

Govt's pledge to protect consumers from high gas prices would be more credible if Tories hadn't spent last 10 years shredding those commitments - eg zero carbon homes, green homes grant scheme No mention of energy efficiency in Minister's statement - extraordinary #GasCrisis 

Bulb - the UK's sixth-largest energy company - seeks bailout amid surging wholesale gas prices

What is wrong with the phrase, “woman adult human female”? Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey says the phrase "doesn't really encapsulate the debate... a trans woman is a woman, a trans man is a man" #Marr 

Shamefully UK banks pour billions into fossil fuels, blowing chances of limiting global heating to 1.5 As overseer of financial system, Bank of England must use its mandate to end this & support transition to net zero @PositiveMoneyUK  Me for @timesredbox
