This is the saddest story Dexter Bristol lived in UK for almost half a century Sacked from his job, because no passport. Denied benefits. Classed as an illegal immigrant. Collapsed in the street. Died. His mother blames the stress.

Being a dick to other people for being a dick doesn't get rid of dicks. It doubles the dicks. Don't be a dick. Hashtag dick.

'Can she tell the house how many have been detained as prisoners in their own country, can she tell the hse how many have been denied health under the NHS, how many denied pensions, how many have lost their jobs. This is a day of national shame.'

One thing we could do to help the people of Syria and other war torn countries is to welcome those who are forced to flee here rather than treat them like criminals

Going to volunteer in Calais next week if anyone in can donate good quality: smartphones, rucksacks, tents/blankets/sleeping bags, men's waterproof coats, walking boots. Would need to pick up tomorrow :)

Signed and shared. I have been involved with a case in which a man who thought he was British & has lived & worked here his whole life, suddenly found his in-work benefits stopped, employment terminated & a fight for his right to stay in the country. Disgraceful.

how did "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" become the typical sentence that contains all letters of the alphabet and not "sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow" which is objectively a million times cooler

Not sure of context but lexicon, dialect, idiom, parlance or, as others have said, vernacular - depending

A special needs teacher living in Britain for over 50 years loses his job after being ruled he was an illegal immigrant. 'Shameful' gets bandied around a lot, but this more than qualifies.

Gandhi said "Be the change you want to see" but I don't understand how I can be a renationalised railway service.

As someone working w/ Amazon marketing, I can confirm that it is HIGHLY important to review your favorite authors' books. HIGHLY. Ideally a book should have minimum 15 reviews & at least a 3.5 star rating for certain algorithms to kick in.

‘Humans though, are designed to work together. Deep down we know life is a dance not a race. We value of our lives in relation to our peers but never truly thrive if others are suffering.’ A really powerful post on why activism and why now!

Just finished Shirley Jackson's novel We Have Always Lived in the Castle. Utter genius. The rising, sinister drumbeat beneath this apparently gentle tale never falters. I can't recommend it enough.

Many who tweeted about my father today would have hated him 50 years ago. He was for the eradication of poverty and caring for poor people. No human was an alien to him because he believed this is a World House. And he asserted that inequality in healthcare is most inhumane.
