The most astonishing thing about the last few years is that, with Trump in the White House, Johnson & Cummings in Downing Street & the most xenophobic Brexit possible on the way, supporters of all four *still* see themselves as victims. It's not political, it's psychological.

"We already do shamefully little in direct comparison with our nearest neighbours. Now we must not only do even less but also blame the 'problem' on our nearest neighbours."

@joymorrissey  You can surely name the school? Or at least share the 'views' they feel unable to express. Surely, it's the least your young constituents deserve...

Arsonists somehow convinced that they're architects.

While I'm doing book recommendations, How Not To Be A Professional Racing Driver by @jasonplato  is wonderfully funny - and I don't have a petrol head bone in my body.

I likes it. Tune in tomorrow at ten.

I see the people who presided over the highest excess death rate in Europe, claimed to have put a ‘protective ring’ around care homes & promised a ‘world-beating’ app by last June are demanding that we trust them again.

If the chairman of the Spectator@afneil ) really can’t get an interview with the ex-editor of the Spectator @BorisJohnson ), he could always ask the current deputy editor to have a word with her husband (Dominic Cummings). Barclay brothers permitting, of course. #bbcimpartiality 

My youngest has had my old phone for a couple of years. Just for games, which I download for her before disconnecting the internet. Still has my old contacts though & it turns out she’s been messaging my dad, who died 5 years ago. I may have something in my eye.

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.

All roads lead to Barnard Castle. The sheer shamelessness of it, the epic sense of entitlement you would need even to contemplate lying so brazenly, the sickness at the heart of government that would allow it. Most of all, though, it showed the contempt in which they hold us all.

It took him *one day* to shift from ‘Clap for our carers’ to ‘Castigate our carers in a desperate, shameful bid to wash blood from my own hands.’ When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.
