Here, in one trenchant must-read thread, is the reason why Johnson won't take part in the live tv debates with real voters: because someone will ask him that, as he's promising to deliver Brexit, will he also make good on the £350m a week he promised for the NHS?

This is an important thread. Ever since Hopkins used the word cockroaches to describe refugees it’s been irresponsible to be neutral about her or allow her a voice.

Boris Johnson is most terrified of this single, simple question: “How many children do you have?”

A stressful watch, but its enlivening to see Katie Hopkins' bogus arguments being ripped apart.

Rory Stewart described by Mail on Sunday as an "ultra-remainer". He thinks we need to Brexit! This is where we are now: even many people backing the cause are not considered pure enough. Insanity.

Sad that Noel is just spouting all this easy unthinking shite. Vegans? - "What's the point?" Brexit? "If you don't like it move to North Korea". You get deeper views, less tabloid-bullshit-man-of-the-people stuff from contestants on 'Love Island'.

Just used this bizarre episode on another panel - about ‘fake news’, appropriately enough - to illustrate how people can use social media to disseminate absolute nonsense.

Blockbuster story buried in this NYT report. Pentagon, intelligence officials fear they cannot trust Trump enough to brief him fully on new US cyber operation against Russia for fear he will "countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials" as he did before with Russians.

Trump’s apologists aren’t going to abandon him now that the evidence of his depravity is complete. Some of them won’t because they’re as disgusting as he is. Some of them can’t because the climb down is too far. It’s corruption, cowardice or a combination of both. Nothing else.

This was taken as you explained that selling ‘bridal gowns & jam to Mexico’ would replace *all* our current trading agreements & shortly before you failed to name a single country in the world that trades exclusively on the ‘WTO terms’ you were promoting. I am listening, aghast.
