Genuinely grotesque watching white far right extremists rampaging into the Capitol when every single person watching this knows that black protesters who tried even a fraction of this would have faced extreme police brutality long ago

In Wuhan, they're partying like it's 2019. But Britain begins 2021 in its worst national emergency since World War II. How did this happen? This is the story of how the British Government plunged its country into avoidable catastrophe.

If you don't want the government to get away with the avoidable deaths of tens of thousands of your fellow citizens, please watch and share this.

After last night's attempted fascist coup in the US, join me for a special show tonight at 7pm with three expert guests: @theintercept 's @ryangrim  Author@sarahljaffe  the @washingtonpost 's @daveweigel  What happens next? Set a reminder here:

My timeline is full of people claiming that nobody could have handled the pandemic better than the Tories. This is a lie. A gratuitous, absurd lie. This is how they messed it up at every stage - and unleashed an entirely avoidable calamity.

A parent sends me her 11 year old daughter's food package. The chicken goes off tomorrow and the bread on the 16th January. It's supposed to be 2 weeks' worth of food.

In episode #48645  of 'Cancel culture is a completely meaningless term used to describe anything and everything', Republicans are now arguing that impeaching Donald Trump for whipping up a violent insurrection is 'cancel culture'

Other than making a defamatory statement here, Andrew Neil seems to have no basic reading comprehension. The article says that the publication *he chairs* did more than any other UK media outlet to promote pro-Trump propaganda, including claims the US election was illegitimate.

Theresa May didn't publicly break down over Windrush, or Grenfell, or disabled people having their benefits cut, or children driven into poverty. In the end, she only publicly shed a tear over her own career.

The Spanish police are now beating up Catalan firefighters. This is an absolute shocker. #CatalanReferendum 

Boris Johnson described gay people as "bumboys", compared equal marriage to three men marrying a dog, discussed beating up a journalist with a criminal, called black people "piccaninnies" with "watermelon smiles", and was sacked twice for dishonesty. Where is the scrutiny?

Catalan firefighters defending voters from the Spanish police. Absolutely astonishing.

This really can't be tweeted enough. This is a work of art.

If they're doing this to journalists while cameras are trained on them, what are they doing to black protesters when no one is looking?

The Sunday Times investigation into the government's catastrophic handling of the coronavirus is one of the most important things you've read. It's behind a paywall, so here's a thread with the key points. Make sure everyone sees it.

When nearly a thousand people were dying a day in Italy, our media rightly portrayed it as a horror show, a national catastrophe. 938 people are reported dead in Britain in a 24 hour period, and most of media are telling us the good news that the government's strategy is working.

Why should we 'respect' Donald Trump, a man who wants to grab women by their genitals and ban Muslims from the United States, separates kids from their parents, and wages war on the earth's endangered climate?
