Reeves' speech on Saturday an outline of Labour's current econ programme, and why broader left needs to pay closer attention: 100% zero carbon by 2030; industrial strategy; no austerity. This isn't neoliberalism, but... 1/2 labour.org.uk/press/rachel-r…

Yes, what an excellent use of our time. The British state has de-facto decriminalised whole areas of serious crime by not having the resources to pursue it, but let's send police officer to track down kids using laughing gas. thetimes.co.uk/article/laughi…

One of the bleakest days in modern British history. A reckless and naive PM gambled the country's prosperity and security on a half-baked claim that he could renegotiate the terms of EU membership without having the faintest idea what he wanted, or could, change...

He spent 7yrs in foster care, in 13 different foster homes.

He got his first acting job answering an ad he saw in a shop window.

He was given nothing, was meant to achieve nothing.

Today - aged 30 - BARRY KEOGHAN was nominated for an Oscar.

Can't get over this story.

Prigozhin, Putin's UK sanctioned ally, hires British law firm 'Discreet Law' (was 'Shady Inc.' taken?) to go after Eliot Higgins for saying Prigozhin runs Wagner, which he now brags about daily.

Rishi's Treasury grants sanctions waivers to enable it.

‘Words like 'freedom,' 'justice,' 'democracy' are not common concepts; on the contrary, they are rare. People are not born knowing what these are. It takes enormous and, above all, individual effort to arrive at the respect for other people that these words imply.’

The most vulnerable children in the world, suddenly disappearing, some of them bundled into cars right outside the hotel, without the govt even able to state who has legal responsibility for the cases.

Good on Labour MPs Olivia Blake and Tulip Siddiq for raising the story of asylum-seeking children going missing from Home Office run hotels.
