I’m currently at your Waterloo hotel in London trying to check in. The accessible room I booked is not accessible. There are no accessible options available. I’m 200 miles from home, female, disabled. What do you suggest I do now?

At the next election I'll vote tactically for the party that's most likely to stop brexit. After that, we'll see.

I've usually voted Labour, though LD after Iraq. And Green in the EU election (never ever Tory obviously). I'm not a member of any party because I don't like to outsource my thinking.

1. I'm not a LibDem 2. If you are talking about the time when they were the junior partner in the coalition, I'm inclined to agree 3. On brexit, they are spot on.

Another very, very awkward encounter for PM - taken to task by a parent on a children’s ward in London where he says repeatedly the ‘NHS has been destroyed’ - Johnson like rabbit in headlights

It is possible for all these things to be true at once: 1. You can be a political activist and still be right about stuff - the hospital admitted there was inadequate cover. He is entitled to be as angry as any of us would be about our kid’s care.

And surely the most avid fan of Corbyn must see that it looks odd to announce policy *before* the conference. Don't you agree with that at least.

Not a vendetta at all. I just fear that the polls may be right and that he'll lead to losing a lot of votes.

Luckily a lot of papers allow you a few free reads a month.

I buy a daily paper. But paying for the Spectator is where I draw a line. The fact is that if you want stuff to be read widely it has to be free.

Brexiter is a middle class dim bulb who tries to achieve increased luminescence through revolutionary zeal Che Guavara style. He has internalised the far-left dogma that the EU is a neoliberal project (false) & bulwark against Russia (true).

The fact seems to be that, despite his promises to the contrary, doesn't give a damn about the opinions of party members. That is not good.

Hmm I was reasonably fir up to my mid-70s, But that's largely a matter of luck. I suspect that is going through the old-age equivalent of a mid-life crisis.

OK but the distinction is crucial because RTM confers zero benefit to patients.

It's interesting that has announced his brexit policy BEFORE the party conference. Most members, and even disagree with it. What a shambles.

This is an excellent article on why CO₂ is so influential in climate change. Literally, a little goes a long, long way.
