You can tell a lot about an organisation by the type of person it attracts to working there. I'm lucky to have worked in remarkable organisations with lovely, super skilled people. Then you have the Conservative Party.

To all of the above (and all, whose tears I saw); know this. I did not feel a single shred of sorrow for when I saw her tears. I thought of all of you instead. I hope you saw her tears, in far happier circumstances than you were in, when you cried yours. 7/7

I was an immig lawyer during the entire time was Home Secretary. Here are a random selection of tears:- Radiographer. Resident for 6 ys. Wife & 5 kids (all at school here 6 ys). Refused settlement for £70 traffic fine. It meant they all had to leave the UK. 1/7

A timely reminder, as , sets out his stall for PM, that his relentless batterings of nurses & doctors now leave us facing eye-watering shortfalls of 70,000 NHS nurses. This is a patient safety catastrophe 😔

Never forget Boris Johnson tried to recite a poem about British colonialism in a former British colony; at its most sacred temple. Until the UK Amb intervened: “you’re on mic. Not a good idea." "What, The Road to Mandalay?" “No. Not appropriate.”

Theresa May didn't publicly break down over Windrush, or Grenfell, or disabled people having their benefits cut, or children driven into poverty. In the end, she only publicly shed a tear over her own career.

Dear Britain, In two months time, this man is likely to be your next Prime Minister. Good luck with that.

I dunno - the appropriateness of that slogan is subjective and depends entirely on what you consider 'Great America' to mean. Whereas "Strong and Stable" is explicitly an objective assessment, which has been factually incorrect.

To be fair, I think you can narrow it down to specific criteria: Male, has eyes, sporty ideally, not sporty also fine.

The remarkable thing here is that whoever comes next will retrospectively make Theresa May look like a genius in comparison. The dearth of skill in the Conservative Party is a thing to behold.

Has there ever been a politician, let alone Prime Minister, whose main slogan - "STRONG AND STABLE!" - was so at odds with what they actually delivered?

"Compromise is not a dirty word" If only she had that advice before "Brexit means Brexit" and declaring her fixed red lines from July to October 2016. Before her Lancaster House speech in January 2017. Before she called a general election to "crush the saboteurs". If only.

Just recently got a Belling, having suffered a similarly rubbish oven for a decade. So far, it's amazing. Cheaper than most range ovens but (at least from my POV) still excellent.

Someone compares Farage and the Brexit Party to the Suffragette movement in this article. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh, weird. May as well delete my tweet as well, then. Anyway, it was a collection of the usual Tory/UKIP suspects, as you guessed. :P Maybe there was someone on there who shouldn't have been, or someone was missing, hence the original tweet vanishing?

What’s the betting that precisely fuck all ever gets done about 2 million EU nationals being illegally disenfranchised, but the Old Brexit Guy Fake Milkshake Incident leads to a full public enquiry and multiple arrests?

By 9am that something was very wrong was already obvious. The failure was systemic. It does not matter if deliberate or inadvertent, it was no doubt avoidable. And it was just allowed to happen. Systemic disenfranchisement for a major election, in the UK in 2019.

Oh look, IDS wants Phillip May to intervene. I must have missed all those moments in the past that Samantha Cameron, or Sarah Brown, or Cherie Blair were told to do so
