You’re now being asked to believe that a man Boris Johnson repeatedly consulted for ‘financial advice’ was miraculously & coincidentally contacted out of the blue by an old chum & distant cousin of Johnson who had independently developed a desire to lend Johnson lots of cash. 1/2

That Jeremy Clarkson column is right down there with the Hopkins one about cockroaches. Gobsmacked that it got published at all and staggered that the editor of The Sun wasn't asked about it by @bbclaurak  on BBC 1 this morning. What an absolute shower of shite.

Sunak’s refusal to state what seems obvious - that he has a private GP - is a calculation. Confirming that he’s not reliant on the NHS in the same way that most of us are is politically tricky, obviously, but I think the obfuscation might actually be worse. Makes him look shifty.

This might be the most compelling & convincing critique of British media ever provided by someone who really knows what it’s like to be in their jaws. Fascinating & tragic that they have all the papers on display in every palace every day. No wonder they’re so obsessed by it.

Very impressed by Tom Bradby. If William is watching, I don't think he could find much fault with how this interview has been conducted. And similarly, I think Harry will feel he's been treated fairly but robustly. That's quite an achievement for an interviewer in this situation.

It’s so odd that so many ‘ardent Brexiteers’ don’t want to hang around to revel in the results of their triumph.

Presumably, Nadim Zahawi also threatened to sue people accurately reporting his tax affairs due to 'carelessness'...

Give this one an RT, eh lads? I don’t normally ask but it’s important because he’s still telling porkies all over the place & going largely unchallenged.

There’s something rather significant about Boris Johnson speaking up for statues of dead white supremacists while Marcus Rashford speaks up for 1.3 million hungry British children of every creed & colour.

Children of immigrants who despise other immigrants probably shouldn’t be in charge of immigration policy. They often seem to be dealing with personal issues that shouldn’t be anywhere near the political space. People who protected & defended their parents might do a better job.

This deliberate & inciteful hatred of humans, in this case refugees, is all they've got. It's all they've ever had. It's how Brexit happened. It's how Gullis ended up in Parliament & Braverman in the Cabinet. It's disgusting & wrong & the next shameful chapter has barely started.

Thank you, @maitlis . Speaking the truth in a time of universal deceit is a revolutionary act…

When people tell you who they are, believe them the first time.

And there it is. Worst fears apparently confirmed. Every single time you told yourself it couldn’t all be down to the pound shop Machiavelli, that nobody could allow these life & death decisions to be taken on the fly, a little voice piped up to remind you who was Prime Minister.

It's just mad, isn't it? These people voted for everything they're disowning, campaigned on precisely the policies they're reversing & created most of the problems they're promising to fix. *For twelve years*.

A digital only subscription to the newspaper reporting that the government is planing to abolish the licence fee is, at £312, more than double the annual cost of the licence fee. That's one newspaper for £312-a-year versus *everything* the BBC provides for £154.50. Get it yet?
