'Before you head bedwards Here's an hour of Rick Edwards'

It would have been worse if they'd recognised you from the drawing.

@rcolvile  The pieces I'd like to write on how little politically engaged people appreciate the true scale of politically disengaged people. It's essentially about the same as golf.

There's the first line of the next novel.

I hope they're all looking after the Queen now. Was so sad to see her by herself, as so many people have had to be over the last year.

I don't want to say we've all been played, but you can't find a Colin The Caterpillar for love nor money in M&S today.

Five hour train journey to Glasgow ahead, but I know @sharilapena  will make it fly by. Bought from the lovely @WHSmith  bookshop at Euston station.

I try not to tweet political opinions, but as it’s my birthday allow me just one. The Tories do want to sell off the NHS. Not in one go, just bit by bit until it’s unrecognisable. You’ll turn up one day and there will be a priority waiting room. They’ve always been open about it.

We're being taken for absolute mugs. Our parents, our kids, our carers, our health workers, every one of us. It's such a sad day.

If you can't do your job without bullying people then you can't do your job.

A woman on 'Deal Or No Deal' told us she needed £15k for IVF treatment. George Michael secretly phoned the next day and gave her the £15k.

People still congregating in busy spaces saying ‘it’s the Dunkirk sprit’, need to understand that in this scenario they’re actually being the Luftwaffe.

Refusing to believe anything you're told, doesn't make you cleverer than the rest of us. Recognising the times when you are actually being told the truth is a crucial skill.

I don’t think we can ever really say this enough, but if you’re an NHS worker just coming off shift, or about to go on shift, you have the gratitude of an entire nation. Sending you love and strength and thanks beyond words. None of this will be forgotten.

The 6 year-old son of a colleague has just drawn this. He has offered no explanation for it.

This government U turn was originally a B turn.

After four months of not being able to go to the pub, it's been so lovely, finally, to not go to the pub out of choice.
