What seems to be the case is that through a combination of boredom, mismanagement and lying, the government hope to browbeat the country into just sort of accepting that 100-150 people dying every single day of an avoidable disease is just standard background radiation.

'It's over to all of you to help the country recover' - Oliver Dowden. Absolute craven bollocks. It's NOT up to us. It's UP TO THE GOVERNMENT to deal with this pandemic safely. I feel FURIOUS.

Like ‘political correctness’ before it, ‘cancel culture’ has been appropriated as an argument-stopper, a way of discrediting objections to truly bad behaviour, feeling offence a greater fault than causing it. A shield for shit. Reconsider before deploying it.

New: More major UK supermarkets join Aldi and Waitrose in pledging to never stock chlorinated chicken and hormone-injected beef M&S, Sainsbury's and The Co-op all tell me they will not sell these products, regardless of any UK-US free trade deal

This cancel culture "debate" is devastatingly boring. Literally no-one has ever been cancelled for doing anything that isn't obviously beyond the pale. Even if they leave the limelight for a while they just come back. The most powerful men in the world right now are open bigots.

Just because something's vegan doesn't mean it's cruelty-free. For example, my ex-girlfriend

Take this seriously -- we've a family friend who ended up with encephalitis from COVID. Changed personality, danger to self and others, in hospital and restrained with no therapies working as yet and no light at the end of this very dark tunnel.

“They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.” Stop the world. I want to get off.

An entire A&E just closed, with 70 NHS staff now in isolation after an outbreak of coronavirus. It's *four* months since the WHO declared a pandemic. How can we possibly still not have fit-for-purpose testing & tracing, ?

Right, I'm off to check my correspondence to see if I've accidentally signed any protest letters lately that I don't agree with now that I've realised who else signed.

Saddened to hear that the Tories want benefit sanctions reinstated during a pandemic and that our PM Boris blamed care home workers and owners for elderly deaths but you go Vicky and dog whistle on the poor with a unsubstantiated story

Starkey apologises for being "clumsy" because he was aiming for the more clever, urbane kind of racism that he always got away with before. We should never see his name again without the word "disgraced" as a prefix.

Do you like rock music? Then you'll love . (I remember tweeting this 12 years ago. Twelve effing years. Anyway, Do You Like Rock Music? is as good now as it was then.)

I agree with Saskia. People do care about the mental health of others on here and those phrases Michael ridicules are employed to make this hell-space feel a little friendlier and cosier. You don’t care? Fine. Don’t assume that tweet was aimed at you.

Dismounted my mountain bike over the handlebars and broke my clavicle in two places, one piece of which came through the skin of my shoulder. Passed out from the pain. 1994. A Cannondale purchased the week before. Cost me £1500.
