367 new deaths reported today. A grim but avoidable catastrophe because the government drove everyone back to work, schools and universities without a functioning Test and Trace system - because they handed it to shambolic private sector cronies.

I'd like to publicly apologise for organising a mass canvass in support of Rosie Duffield in the 2019 general election. Genuinely mortified.

One of the most amazingly savage interviews you'll ever watch. She has no chill whatsoever. It's like watching someone's anxiety dream
