He was motivated by the right things and went about them in the right way. He was a man of passionate views and beliefs always rooted in the desire to improve the lives of the place and the people he came from. But he was pragmatic not ideological in his pursuit of them. 2/3

My last dealings with him were over a little film we made for the @open_britpress  campaign. We lost that one but it showed he fought to the end for what he believed. And his life and career as a whole were a huge success. His positive legacy in Ireland is immense. RIP

So the Chinese are building a new hospital in a week. How is the lying charlatan getting on with the 40 phantom hospitals he promised during the election?

We now live in a country where there are more foodbanks than McDonalds branches. In the year @UKLabour  left power there was one.

Would love it if @UKLabour  candidates who know they can’t win would endorse @LibDems  candidate and vice versa. Only takes a few to start something big

The only time Amber was spot on was when she said you were a fucking chancer. Now find the £350m for the NHS or STFU

Lib Dems, whatever you think of Corbyn, you know what to do. Do it! Please

Memo @BBCPolitics  why is there a news blackout on the news that @BorisJohnson  visited a hospital and left to a chorus of booing from staff and patients?

I can confirm that this is a genuine email. And I can confirm its accuracy in all parts
