‘This is not democracy. Lies spread in darkness paid for with cash from God knows where.’ Two days ago I accused of breaking democracy. told them they were free to respond at any time. So far? Nothing but silence...

A symbol for our times as Our Lady weeps for our stupidity: Amidst the wreckage of the world, which needs transforming and rebuilding, the "angels of our better nature" survive. Focus on that.

They lied, they cheated, they broke the law and now it turns out they faked migrant crossing videos and attacks to stoke up enough racist sentiment to get their ridiculous project over the line. Any chance of a rerun yet or nah?

Instead of reading Mitch McConnell's sickening praise of Brett Kavanaugh, read 's profile of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. "Her courage, in the face of those who wished to silence her, galvanized Americans."

"This is not democracy. Spreading lies in darkness, paid for by illegal cash." "Is this how you want history to remember you? As the handmaidens to authoritarianism?" Brilliant and brave calls out the "gods of Silicon Valley".

‘I don’t care how elected they were. So was the far right in Germany.’ Please watch this. Every day the hate politics of the far right is being normalised in Britain. This was phenomenal from 👏👏👏

Here's the problem: BBC News, esp Radio 4's Today, has been a complete betrayal. But look at the quality of natural history programmes, documentaries and drama - the BBC is a world beater. We have to rescue the news service from the hands of its Daily Mail/Telegraph editor.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan tells LBC he thinks the six-month Brexit extension "won't be enough" and Theresa May should have "taken away all the panic" by revoking Article 50.

It's not as though Brexit requires any more work. It just needs a PM with the cojones to admit to the public that Brexit as voted for in 2016 cannot be delivered, apologise for the past 3 years, and . Just more can-kicking until that point is reached.

If this was an accident, if you really did have no idea, then you should: 1) explain how. 2) launch a full inquiry into how your campaign misled you in this way. And 3) offer a full & unreserved apology to . That really is the minimum. Silence looks like complicity
