It’s all happening. The real revolution will be when the Conservative party ends. When that will be, however, is anyones guess considering that all they fucking do is party.
🚨 Senior Conservative backbencher tells me tonight they are confident of getting to 54 letters tomorrow to try and oust the PM. “Up the revolution!” they tell me. No 10 / whips subjecting them to “threats and blackmail” but has only angered MPs further, they say.

Newsnight reports that Boris Johnson’s Downing Street Chief of Staff has been telling Tory MPs they are ‘absolutely confident’ he will get through the Sue Gray report. More undermining of the process from Number 10.

You tried to close my local A&E in 2013. Considering the last two years, its a good job the High Court ruled it unlawful and booted it out. We haven't forgotten the damage you caused as Health Secretary y'know.

The Tories scrapped nursing bursaries in 2017. Remind me again Jeremy, who was the Secretary of State for Health at that time?

…And I would like people to forget that I was, actually, health secretary, for this country, quite recently. And therefore I’m partially accountable for the current, lamentable state of the NHS and the poor exhausted Drs. Brass neck of it.

You caused the problem you’re currently complaining about. You did. You and your tenure set up this situation, forcing doctors into a contract that bound them to longer hours and less rights.

I agree. So let's look at the number of doctors training in the UK during the years that you were Health Secretary (2012 - 2018). 2012 - 58,688 2013 - 58,840 2014 - 57,791 2015 - 58,326 2016 - 58,637 2017 - 59,084 2018 - 59,276 That's a 1% increase in six years...
If you don't train enough doctors and nurses, this is the price you pay 👇 One in four NHS doctors tired to the point of impairment, survey finds theguardian.com/society/2022…

When you watch @BorisJohnson seemingly close to tears just remember he thought it was ok to ‘let the bodies pile high’

I’m struck by the contrast. Our whole media establishment should be standing in the dock for their complicity in Boris Johnson’s lies and moral bankruptcy Instead, one of the best investigative journalists of our generation stands in a real dock, facing literal bankruptcy
The silence of most British journalists over this case, let alone the US journalists who purchased so much of their reporting on Cadwalladr’s work, is almost as striking as the volume of evidence she has provided. Who will stand up for journalism? Or will journalists hang alone?

If you have ever wondered how long an utter fuckwit can get away with pretending to be Prime Minister, it’d appear the answer is two years.

It's amazing what proper research and funding can discover! Cannabis compounds CBDA and CBGA can bind to the spike protein of COVID and stop it from entering cells. They can both prevent and treat infection, meaning the potential future uses are huge 🌱 nationalhempservice.co.uk/bl…

My first campaign ad, ‘37 Seconds.’ #JustLikeMe I hope this ad works to not only destigmatize the use of marijuana, but also forces a new conversation that creates the pathway to legalize this beneficial drug, and forgive those who were arrested due to outdated ideology.
