Fun Fact

The name of the social network was originally "Twttr", later changed to Twitter.

BBC really is in peril. Listen to no crocodile tears for poor pensioners from ministers who fail to get Pension Credit to 2/5 that qualify, worth £65 a week. (TV Licence costs 43p a day, best value ever for anything) https://t.co/pW4zgxvYlF

No surprise at utter chaos of govt mask messaging, as with everything Covid from the start. This PM doesn't do 'precautionary', only reckless, libertarian, laissez-faire: hence world-beating only in global deaths. Excellent analysis by @GuardianHeather https://t.co/bZj7ua7AE0

@MichaelRosenYes Lovely to see you on TV this morning, you even got my 16 Yr son out of bed and that's no mean feat. He's been a fan for years and was concerned and shocked when he knew how ill you'd been.

Quoted @shahmiruk

The Cabinet Office has awarded an £840,000 contract to research public opinion about government policies to a company owned by two FRIENDS of Michael Gove and Dominic Cummings, without putting the work out for tender. This is what corruption looks like. https://t.co/CsvJM4PDpc

Dear British people You’re being robbed! Why aren’t you doing something to stop this? There should be outrage! The law is being burned and people are being fleeced. https://t.co/AOhBL25Gxq

“Corruption” and “ineptitude” are such nice words to say - they have a great feel in the mouth. Just as well, really, as we have so many opportunities to do so. https://t.co/cIuNnrNnvA

'To govern is to deliver' says @pollytoynbee. Dead right. Even when this government gets a decent idea (which is rarely) it seems incapable of putting it into effect. https://t.co/rzWBoO76X6

Getting straight to the point @pollytoynbee @guardian helpfully reminds is the incompetence of the Government is more of a stumbling block than whether policies may actually deliver for the economy. https://t.co/8GzvDpBchx

“This government’s visceral contempt for local authorities has blocked delivery time and again. Councils are denuded of funds, on their knees, having received no news of new money on Wednesday.” @pollytoynbee https://t.co/HPhhB5Lx4d

FE colleges left to wither in the last decade, stricken of funds, ignored. Will Sunak’s QuickStart job’s scheme come with good training? The scheme will need the local FE colleges’ knowledge of good employers etc. Good article by ⁦@pollytoynbeehttps://t.co/Wy2KsiKFW8

Incompetence will sink this government. The issue with the chancellor’s plan isn’t ‘is it enough?’ (it isn’t) but ‘can they do it at all?’ Polly Toynbee https://t.co/SkuHbU4I8x
