6/ The actual threat from China is that together with Russia it is promoting disinformation about the epidemic - designed to erode our belief in democracy:

Yes China suppressed news and stats, yes they're using aid as geopolitics ... but this Mail splash is a straight propaganda offensive to deflect from Johnson's incompetence, for which 000s will pay with their lives 1/...

2/ We had a criminally underprepared NHS: here's @TheLancet  on the details...

3/ Johnson/Cummings response was politicised nonsense - with Whitehall's culture of irresponsibility compounding the mess - here's @BylineTimes 

5/ I warned on 4 March Johnson and the medical technocrats we're likely to screw this up...

7/ Their main target is the EU, which Russian TV continually says has "disintegrated" - if Berlin/ The Hague don't stop blocking a Euro fiscal stimulus they will hand CN/RU the geopolitical victory of a century

Boris Johnson's "War cabinet" will spend at wartime levels on state propaganda. Because it's a war against you, the poor, the students, the old, the sick, the young families - oh and manufacturing. It's a war for greed and racism. Which side are you on?

Imagine Corbyn's team did this on the eve of the election. The Tory sense of entitlement and invulnerability against the media is stunning ... and fed by the daily sycophancy this was a break from ??

Marr: Nurses are going to food banks Theresa Weird: "There are many complex reasons for people going to food banks" THE MAIN ONE IS POVERTY!

BBC’s Jon Sopel reporting May pushed for early strike “to avoid having to get parliamentary consent”. That’s the democracy you now live in.

Five minutes befor Gove turned up at C4 the Tories fed Buzzfeed the threat to revoke the channel's licence - ours is becoming a "managed democracy"

Let's get clear what the BBC got wrong over the Leeds incident. It relied on a single, partisan source with no corroborative evidence, providing right-wing newspapers with a BBC branded fake news story.
