No Deal is not an outcome. Merely the start of a painful and nationally humiliating process. Within days, and with business grinding to a halt, the government will have to act to end the chaos, literally begging to re-instate trade relationships...

Their grandparents and great grandparents fought each other in wars that cost the lives of tens of millions. For 74 years we have had peace. Retweet if you are proud to stand side by side with our friends in Europe

Bloody hell. Theresa May is a terrible PM. And the Tories are going to replace her with Boris Johnson, who is terrible-squared, maybe even terrible to the 10th power.

One Nation Conservatism? Thatcher’s neoliberal counter-revolution devoured and spat it out. Very few One Nation Tories still exist. Ken Clarke is the only genuine one I can think of.

A hospital isn’t just a healthcare facility for a local population. It also contributes to local economies by providing employment & stimulating local businesses. The NHS system of national healthcare facilities is fundamental to redistribution of wealth and *growing* our economy

British Steel is requesting £30m from the Govt in order to avoid going into administration and 4,500 job losses. A timely reminder that Chris Grayling has wasted £2.7bn on failed privatisation, useless contracts & general incompetence. That's £30m times 90.

Our steel industry doesn't just provide thousands of jobs, it has a major role to play in ushering in a Green Industrial Revolution and securing a sustainable future for British manufacturing. The government must not allow this vital industry to collapse.

Unless you oppose right wing extremists now, while they are a minority, there will come a time when their intimidation will mean only the bravest will dare oppose them. All you need to do is be kind to people and treat everyone you meet as a human being
