I’m normally a #Marr  fan, but he let himself down there. What is the point of asking someone onto your programme - let alone the PM - if you’re going to start talking across them two words into every answer they give?

This video is utterly devastating. How Corbynistas react when they think that Boris has associated with anti-Semites, and how they react at the end when they learn that it was really their hero.

My late father would have been 94 today. He was just old enough to fight in the war. His generation stepped up unhesitatingly and uncomplainingly, and never asked for special recognition.

I'm all for freedom, but there has to be a limit.

@s8mb  Magical passage when Colin Thubron finds Sogdian-speaking goatherds in the Pamirs: “This, I told myself, was the last, distorted echo of the battle-cries shouted by the armies of the Great Kings at Marathon & Thermopylae, all that remained from the chant of Zoroastrian priests.”

Every past Labour government was patriotic and pro-NATO. This is the first time one of our main parties has been taken over by Marxists. So why is Corbyn rising in the polls?

I’ll be spending polling day in the constituency with the smallest majority in the UK. Southampton’s @Royston_Smith  is a model MP: modest, quietly patriotic, a former small business owner who - though he hates it when I mention this - won a medal for heroism. Can you join us?

When did the BBC start describing nationalisations with Labour’s preferred phrase “bring back into public ownership”?

This is so beautiful: moments when deaf people hear for the first time. Truly, we live in an age of wonders.

This is just across Hong Kong’s border with China. If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.

You think Churchill was a racist? Just wait till you hear about the guy he defeated.

When the European Arrest Warrant was introduced, we were told it would be used to extradite terrorists, not elected regional politicians.

“Brexit chaos” makes it sound as though the mess in Westminster is the fault of 17.4 million Leave voters. It’s not. It’s the fault of those politicians who, after promising to respect the result, spent three years blocking it.

Twitter may regret de-verifying people of whom it disapproves. Until now, a blue tick simply meant authentication, but henceforth it implies endorsement. Suddenly, Twitter is in the ideology business.

Thirty years ago today, it looked as though socialism was finished for good. It had brought squalor and oppression in every place it had been tried. I would never have imagined, back then, that it would come back into fashion.

For the love of God, what is happening to this country?
