Recipe for #EtonMess
1 large dollop of corrupt & incompetent PM
Generous smattering of equally useless ministers
1 mismanaged pandemic
1 huge lump of national self harm
Liberal dusting of racism & xenophobia
Mix in labour, fuel & transport shortages
Dust with meaningless slogans
As America entered World War II, they were in need of a method of communication that couldn’t be cracked by Germany or Japan. They found the answer they were looking for in the languages of Native Americans. http://dts.podtrac.com/redirect.mp3/chrt.fm/track/52783/traffic.libsyn.com/everythingeverywherepodcast/471_Navajo_Code_Talkers-leveled.mp3?dest-id=2930639
Who would ever have thought a British government would have something to learn about common sense and empathy from a Russian dictatorship?

Just look at the cruelty of the #tory party, the damage it is inflicting due to corruption, incompetence and indifference.
It is a crisis for our country, a cancer and not a benign one; like all such cancers it MUST be cut out! #ToriesOut
Steve Bruce: Newcastle sack head coach following club's £305m takeover by Saudi-led consortium http://ow.ly/G7Ei30rXEbM It's indicative of football, and our society that today 'fans' will be celebrating the sacking of a decent man, that only ever did his best for their club!
Wow, major surprise after the lack of media speculation. Just hope they gave him the pay off he deserved at the very least for doing a pretty good job in the circumstances.
Newcastle have fired Steve Bruce. Never saw that coming.
Have to agree; having a debate on Twitter is like preaching religion to gerbils.
It's important to understand what forums are good at. For me, Twitter is for finding clever people and reading what they have to say, funding funny people and having them make you laugh, and keeping up with news. It's great for that. For debate? Nope, not for shit.
Calling the #tories a cancer is unfair; on cancer.
Whilst it is an uncaring disease that doesn't discriminate, colour, sex or age, it doesn't knowingly target any group.
The #tory party however is a disease, but it knowingly targets the poor or those that didn't vote for them.
Please next time you vote, I urge you to make it count.
If you voted #Conservative and aren't an out an out #tory or racist beyond hope, think very carefully next time!
If you are #Labour or #LibDem etc vote tactically, let's remove this cancer from government #votesmart

Kind of depressing that he seems to continue to fool the electorate, but to most world leaders he is a laughing stock dragging his country into the becoming a laughing stock too.
This is the @BorisJohnson legacy; corruption, incompetence, collapse into chaos but indifference
Johnson treats the electorate like fools and then thinks he can do the same to world leaders.
Apparently, we (Britain) is learning to live with Covid along with the 'small' rise in infection rates!
Heard a minister express that just moments ago. #unbelievable yet many seem to still believe the #tory lies.
The injection spike story is making me sick to my stomach. It's unspeakably horrific.
I probably ask myself this very same question several times a day!
How does a basically intelligent, moral nation allow itself to be continually conned?
By a man that robs the poor to protect the rich, made decisions responsible for the loss of thousands of lives.
How does he do it? From today’s Irish Examiner https://www.irishexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/arid-40723860.html
I’m loving this view from my balcony at an agriturismo up in the hills of Romagna. Surrounded by fruit trees and with the hills in the foreground, I can see as far as the Adriatic Sea. 😍

Oh yeah, much more important to keep the 'city competitive' than help working families survive.
A greater need for food banks is this governments idea of levelling up.
Politics is about choices.
Rishi Sunak has decided to cut taxes on bank profits saving them £1.5bn a year.
And he has cut universal credit by over £1,000 a year pushing millions of working families into poverty.
What does this woman know about respect, empathy or consideration for others .........NADA!
