This government forces the poorest to compete for scraps, while letting corporations shirk their moral obligations to satisfy their own greed. With the arrival of the EU Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive, no wonder billionaire Brexiteers want to Leave.

Hi John, my parents came to London because the British Empire came to their homes first. Like me, they were proud to be British subjects and proud to be English too. For Englishness to be worthwhile, it has to be about shared stories, institutions and values. Not just DNA.

Iain Duncan Smith falsely complains that the EU is acting like a bully over Brexit - he's the architect of Universal Credit which has literally taken money away from school dinners for poor chldren...AND cheering disability benefit? Standard bullying behaviour...

Remember when the Tories said they had to cut ‘welfare’ to get the deficit down? Turns out they just spent much of the money on tax relief for the rich. ? CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

McVey just falsely implied DWP claimants prioritise phones & computers over food. One thing's for sure, no one needs a lesson in morality from someone who had to apologise to parliament for lying, & who broke ministerial code by having a day at the races - paid for by a bookmaker

...how is using a puppet going to improve the representation of disabled people? Things like this are so incredibly infuriating because I'm sure there are many fantastic, talented actors with ASD who you could be representing and instead you use a puppet? So dehumanising 😶

I honestly cannot grasp how anyone involved here thought using a puppet to play an autistic child was a great idea. A PUPPET. Disabled people aren’t human - literally.

This photo of a woman with a cane using her phone has been shared 1000s of times, with people saying she is faking being blind. Sight loss is a spectrum and blind people use phones, read Kindles and watch TV in many ways. We urge everyone to see the person, not the sight loss.

Remember the tories telling us austerity was justified beacause "we're all in it together"? Well ex brexit secretary David Davis has just been taken on as an external adviser by major tory donors JCB on a salary of £60,000 for 20 hours work a year

BBC bashing is often misplaced but Diane Abbott was treated appallingly. Politics presenters need to be capable of correcting misinformation - not backing it up. A working class black woman being mocked as a fool, yet again, is not a good look.
