Every parent of student kids I know sent them off half-resigned to them coming home infectious, but still intending to have them back for Xmas anyway. Surely govt considered & came to a decision about this *before* unis went back? twitter.com/RichardVaughan1/st

The Tories are turning the garden of England into the lorry park of England.

"Police will patrol the Kent border to turn away lorries without an access permit in a bid to ease Brexit border chaos. Michael Gove said officers will use automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras and “other means” to block drivers." ~AA

This just in. If your car is chauffeur-driven you will not need to wear a mask. A cynical person would point out that this means the cabinet, being driven around in government cars, have exempted themselves. But I am NOT that cynical person. We're all in this together. and so on.

The government’s flagrant dismissal of gender recognition reform confirms what trans people like me have always known

Ahh, so now the utter shambles of 7000-lorry tailbacks in Kent will be caused by the hauliers rather than the government’s complete failure to prepare for Brexit.

Could Kent just join the EU?

NEW Gove confirms a de facto internal border in Kent - rephrasing previous tweet (this is something transport industry been v worried about)

Truckers will have to have a "Kent Access Permit" to get into the county says Gove. It will use police and ANPR to enforce

When did Libertarian come to mean “the god given right of one English person to infect another”

They’ve twisted the idea of liberty into pure oppression — just like the philosopher Nozick did when he concluded we should be ‘free’ to sell ourselves into slavery.

So this week we learnt:
Rail franchises don't work.
Water privatisation didn't work
Privatised testing and tracking doesn't work.
A government run by privatisation obsessives doesn't work.
I wonder ... could it be that we need to rethink privatisation? 🤔

RT @hettieveronica
if you’d told me six months ago that we’d be in the same place six months later because this government paid Deloitte and Serco millions for a testing and tracing system that doesn’t work, headed by one of their mates, i’d probably be like.... sounds about right

They really are pathetic

Interesting Brexit narrative now coming from government about potential chaos when transition period ends.

Is there anything more illustrative of British politics in 2020 than a @Conservatives MP tweeting like an anon football account by accusing @mrjamesob of being 'anti-British' whilst spelling 'British' incorrectly?

First question then: why has it taken him 3 weeks to recognise what was obvious in the government’s own figures by the start of September? eclecticlight.co/2020/09/22/wa twitter.com/ianbetteridge/stat

Actually agree with this. Of course as soon as he has to answer questions the whole edifice crumbles and he reverts to type – thin skinned, evasive, and unwilling to take any responsibility for anything going wrong.

“A failure of government and not an act of god”. Devastating line from @Keir_Starmer

As a man with almost exactly the same pattern of male baldness as Johnson, I feel I should tell him that it’s long past the time when a comb over was appropriate.
