Head of media relations but this is me speaking and I do drift off-topic, especially with personal views on Brexit. Official word is on website. 🇪🇺🇬🇧

Johnson's campaign has precisely replicated the Vote Leave strategy: Lies, division & moral cowardice. Now we find out if wins a mandate.

If every editor did what James has, address readers who fall prey to FB & Twitter disinformation campaigns with facts, respect & warmth, our industry would be in better standing. It's devastating that for most, it wouldn't be possible bc of the scale & reach of disinformation.

Unless it’s an emerging market and you want to trade, say, FX on the back of latest lurch by government. So completely not the mature stable democracy that is the UK.

Maybe you as a top political journalist even figure your real output is on TV or in print and the stuff on Twitter is just “real time”/first draft/never wrong for long so it’s all fine. (Except of course it isn’t.)

Think (and just a theory here) there’s also a transactional element. Your gives you, a top political journalist, snippets of actual news as well as buckets of spin and even lies on the basis that you transmit both. If you don’t play, there are other journos

Yeah it really sucks that my wife could come over and work at a severely-understaffed haematology ward. Those cancer patients must’ve thought she was taking the piss.

Also they just had a 12 year old kid on who sometimes goes hungry because his mother has £50 a week to feed three people. This is barbaric in a rich country.

The problem with that is it means you say whoever forms the government is secondary to what your local MP is like. While you should look at the latter, the former is far more important for policy and how the country is run. No?

This thread would have made a better editorial. (Or they could have tried arguing the opposite.) The point is you have to pick a hierarchy among the horrors and decide what is worst.
