Glad PM finally accepts need for public inquiry but needs to start ASAP this year not next Must be fully independent, cover every​ aspect of response to Covid including failure to protect care homes & ensure bereaved families get justice @CovidJusticeUk 

V glad animals to be recognised as sentient beings in law. I first called for this when Govt claiming it wasn't necessary But legal protection should be extended to factory-farmed animals & animal welfare in trade deals must be written into law @ciwf 

Shameful. What kind of country does this Government want us to be?

Wow! Just reached half a million followers on Twitter. Thank you so much to everyone who follows me 🙏 Now if just one in 5 of you signed this really important petition for a #WellbeingEconomy , we'd reach our target 🙂

No plan to tackle the #ClimateEmergency  nor to reset our economy in a way that's fairer & greener Just a creeping authoritarianism & moves to undermine our country's democracy My take on the #QueensSpeech  for @MetroUK  👇

💥Yay💥The petition for a #WellbeingEconomy  now has support from every single constituency in the UK! Let's keep going to reach 100k signatures & force a parliamentary debate on putting health & wellbeing above profit & growth @WEconBrighton  Sign here👇

“Old progressive politics is stuck on “rinse & repeat” cycle of at best diminishing returns, at worst abject failure that opens door to more strident authoritarian populism...It’s time for a politics that is transformative” Spot on @Neal_Compass ⁩

I’m still trying to get action on PM’s systematic lying in parliament The BBC asks whether people care about it Please RT if you do

Just urged the Prime Ministers to give 16/17 year olds a vote on June 8th. @AngusRobertson  agreed. RT if you do too.

Government just voted with majority of 53 to strip amendment 16 from #AgricultureBill , which would have safeguarded food standards in trade deals - demonstrating beyond doubt that their promises are totally utterly & completely worthless - even when enshrined in their manifesto👇

The BBC asked me if Trump's actions can be explained by a lack of experience. No, it's because he's a racist bigot. #StandUpToTrump 

There’s a reason Johnson carefully choreographs his image as casual & sloppy, down to fake ruffling of hair before he goes into #PMQs  or on TV - it’s to help give impression his lies are accidental but it’s a script & he knows exactly what he’s doing. And it’s dangerous #R4Today 

This is one of the most dangerous anti-democratic pieces of legislation in recent times which seeks to criminalise dissent - and Government is trying to rush it through before the opposition organises. Please RT & ask your MP to oppose it next week #PoliceCrackdownBill 

Lying to parliament matters - and its normalisation under @BorisJohnson  is deeply dangerous. That’s why we’re coordinating some parliamentary action in response Thanks @PeterStefanovi2  & @HarryCockburn  @Independent  Watch this space

Around 100,000 Tory party members have inflicted on us a prime minister with a record of bigotry, racism, lying and incompetence #BorisJohnson  This is not democracy This is #NotInOurName
