The voice of #Israel  @AmbMarkRegev ⁩ - former Ambassador to the UK - talks to Political Thinking about his journey from Australian socialist kibbutznik to becoming a close aide @IsraeliPMo  ⁦⁩ & explains why he’s optimistic about peace 🎧

Cabinet Secretary Mark Sedwill writes to @BorisJohnson  saying “we have agreed that I will stand down”. Interesting choice of words

Comes a day after @michaelgove  gave an important lecture calling for government to experiment & decentralise more, employ fewer generalists & champion those FDR called “The Forgotten Man”. Will this be the much promised Whitehall revolution or just a change of personnel ?

"Stop, think & check" Facebook urges its users in an effort to combat hate speech. I asked one of their bosses today why the company didn't do just that instead of asking its users to do it for them ...

One revealing deletion & one revealing addition to what was briefed about the PM’s speech. He did not referred to himself or his plan as Rooseveltian but he did say “I am not a Communist”. Wonder if some Tories worried that their leader risked sounding just a bit too left wing?

It’s cold, it’s wet & I fell asleep on the sofa after lunch when Boris Becker was one set up. Anything much happened since ? #wimbledonrewind

I can’t remember seeing a poll as clear as this. The public heard the PM’s explanation. They heard Dominic Cummings. A very clear majority simply aren’t buying it @DailyMailUK ⁩

I’ve heard it all now. The Brexit Secretary has just voted against the motion that he’d just been arguing for. Anyone got a better word than Omnishambles?

Remember that PPE airlift from Turkey ? The one that was announced again & again & took days to get here. Guess what? The government has now confirmed @Telegraph  story that all 400,000 surgical gowns delivered were unusable because they didn’t meet the required criteria

Thought for the day : Those you disagree with aren’t enemies or traitors. They don’t deserve to be “knifed or lynched or hanged”. They are just people you disagree with. Those who report news you don’t like aren’t fake or frauds or enemies of the people. They are just reporters.

Trump’s attack on ’s Jim Acosta is an attack on the right of all journalists everywhere to ask tough questions of people in power. That’s our job

You know what ? Football did come home - brought us together, made us proud, gave us something to cheer ???????

Now clear why Boris kept off air this week. Leave's promises - to get back £350m, to slash immigration & to have cake & eat it - all binned
