Vaccines do not cause autism. Dr Andrew Wakefield was struck off for medical fraud. Measles kills, maims and causes permanent brain damage. Please, please chat to a nurse or doctor before deciding not to vaccinate your kids.

BREAKING. Report reveals what Rees-Mogg and co really have in mind for post-Brexit Britain: An “ideal” UK-US trade deal that would “open up the NHS to foreign competion.” Absolutely terrifying. Our NHS - in Donald Trump’s hands.

We can make our own laws to a great degree. We benefit from many of the things that common laws enable, such as human rights, common trading standards, and freedom of movement. JRM is allowed an opinion, but he shouldn't be allowed to lie to the public and call it truth.

Which will cause the most harm? Forcing through an incompetent/no deal because a public vote 2 years ago says we have to. Or checking with the public this is what they voted for? As Churchill put it; 'Those who never change their mind never change anything'

Today I meet & his staff to discuss Robbie's case & how his predecessors failed my family & copious others over the last 3 decades. I hope my talk will help them understand the importance of robust & independent investigations & how NHS cover ups destroy families!

Charging migrant women for giving birth on the NHS is hugely problematic. Charging them 50% more than the cost to the NHS of delivering the service looks like profiteering. Why?

Can I just make a bloody simple point... You don't have to end Free Movement, punishing EU and UK citizens alike... ..in order to "end discrimination of non-EU migrants" We should be raising rights and standards of treatment everywhere, not lowering them.

Many people voted Leave to reduce immigration, thinking that EU migrant workers were a drain on UK resources. Well, how wrong they were. Share this with anyone you know who voted Leave and ask them to reconsider. They deserve a .

If were so keen on Brexit as a boon for innovation, why did he not talk to the UK's science community and/or tech community? Both communities were ~90% for Remain. This is not evidence-based policy here. It's lazy personal wishes unfettered by evidence.

The only person emerging with any credit from that Panorama was Philip May for admitting he always confuses chrysanthemums with dahlias. Literally everyone else, PM, Davis, Mogg, Starmer, Gove, Robbins et al made the schoolchild error of claiming to know the unknowable.

‘Brexit is an enormous economic opportunity that will make the least well off in our society benefit most. Lower prices for food, clothing, footwear. Reduced unskilled labour coming in, increased wage rates for UK workers’ predicts ⁦

Sometimes there is no better verb than ‘futzing’: messing around and paying attention to trivial matters when you really need to get moving (from the Yiddish ‘arumfartzen’, to fart about).

I'm writing about the legacy of our longest serving health secretary . I have a long list of things that got worse in the NHS under his tenure but does anyone know of anything that got better (aside from the 3% health funding increase he helped secure before he left)?

More news on healthcare workers backing a to save the NHS: "NHS staff back a People’s Vote by a margin of 2-1, while an “overwhelming” majority of NHS staff are said to back remaining in the EU." Momentum is building. Join us in the fight.

How about we have one day a year when politicians tell us the truth, not just about the facts of Brexit but how they honestly feel about it? Forcing MPs to defend something they don't believe in is nonsense, pretending there are only two options is a lie. Just one day of truth...
