@OwenJones84 Yup - some no-neck anon string of numbers just threatened me for helping send "GNC children under the knife". I confess, my first reaction was, what's this got to do with a vitamin company?

A lot of the liberals who rode the wave of anti-Brexit sentiment have spent a lot of time crowing about the irrelevance of the left in the Labour Party, but what influence do they think they have lol twitter.com/philipproudfoo…
a lot of them don't seem to care, because of vibes (they think he's one of them, so nothing else matters), or they think he's playing 10D chess and it's all part of a secret long-term plan to get Britain back into the EU twitter.com/mattzarb/statu…
@OwenJones84 As I just tweeted - I have received more penis pics in the last 48 hours than ever before because of my vocal support for trans women.

The Republican Party has loudly and repeatedly smeared progressives - including Jews - as antisemites for criticizing Israel. But, not a single Republican member of Congress or party leader has criticized Donald Trump for meeting with a Neo-Nazi. It's an antisemitic party.

is there anyone credible and trustworthy to talk dispassionately about the Wuhan lab leak theory?
What's funny, though, is most of the people screaming "Tory enabler!!!" at those of us pointing out Starmer's objective dishonesty were not only furiously denouncing Corbyn when he was leader - half of them were voting Lib Dem.
Keir Starmer's supporters know that his leadership campaign was nakedly and unashamedly dishonest (unless they are totally delusional). Because they can't rebut this on factual grounds - because it's the truth - they try to monster anyone who points it out.
Remember when we were told that "post-truth politics" was being peddled by the extremes? And yet a load of self-described "centrists" spend a lot of their lives screaming "you're a Tory!!" at anyone who points out Keir Starmer's objectively rampant dishonesty. twitter.com/AyoCaesar/stat…

So now Keir Starmer is outflanking the Tories on Brexit by suggesting they're going wobbly on Boris Johnson's hardest possible Brexit. This is the guy who built up his leadership bid before 2019 by making himself Mr. Remainer. Just astonishing behaviour. twitter.com/DPJHodges/stat…
Keir Starmer's team briefed me during the Labour leadership election that they wanted to keep @johnmcdonnellMP as Shadow Chancellor. "We'd love him to stay!" - direct quote. Just the most unbelievably dishonest people imaginable.
Keir Starmer isn't just a bad social democrat, he's a bad liberal, but his fan club don't care about the substance of politics. For them, politics is a "vibe". They think he's one of them, so nothing else really matters.
I'll say it again, no matter how much it upsets his tedious, gaslighting fan club: Keir Starmer ran the most dishonest campaign for the leadership of a major political party in British history. Call me a "Tory" all you want, I'm not the one defending right-wing talking points! twitter.com/DPJHodges/stat…
The way this guy played liberals, & lied to his members, to become Labour leader should terrify the Tories more than anything else. He will go to the right of them on whatever it takes. twitter.com/dpjhodges/stat…

Suella Braverman being taken apart by one of her fellow Tory MPs exposed the cruelty of our asylum system 👇👇youtu.be/jK5C-um58xM5f
All snark and sarcasm aside, I really, really hope journalists and the Democratic Party treat Trump's meeting with Nick Fuentes as the scandal that it is. This guy has made openly genocidal, authoritarian statements about the Jews within the past few weeks. it's horrifying.

The thing is, I'm in the 29% who thinks Keir Starmer would be a better prime minister than Rishi Sunak, and no-one can call me a fan. Labour are on course to win big because the Tories have self-destructed. Let's not pretend that it's enthusiasm for Starmer, though! twitter.com/LeftieStats/st…
💯 problematic drug use is a health issue, not a criminal one. It is a symptom of something else going on, and as@OwenJones844 says, it’s usually trauma. In my long established professional experience, it is always#traumaa. People need help, not criminalised �twitter.com/OwenJones84/st…Pc

Migration has hit record highs. Support for high migration has also hit record highs. 2022 is not 2012 - the public are now much more convinced of the benefits of migration, and much more open to/accepting of high migration. twitter.com/jburnmurdoch/s…

Often the problem with drugs is the shit mixed in with them. If we took away the monopoly that criminal gangs have over drugs, we could purify them and thus reduce harm. But instead we have politicians who've taken drugs demanding other people are criminalised for the same thing
For those of us who've supported people with problematic relationships with drugs, you can see the horror of criminalisation up front: because you can't get your friends the proper support they need. These are people who should be treated as patients, not criminals.
That's why drugs should be treated as a public health issue: ending the absurdity of millions of people enjoying recreational drugs, but only some - disproportionately because of the colour of their skin - being criminalised for it. That way those who need help can get it.
For millions of people - and that includes politicians and journalists who use their platforms to denounce drug use - recreational drug use is a harmless "good time". There are some who have a problematic relationship with drugs, often due to underlying trauma, who need help.
I'm sorry, but this is grotesque. Keir Starmer supports the 'war on drugs' which disproportionately criminalises young Black men. But he laughs about his past drug use as a "good time". Why does he think other people should be criminalised for doing what he did himself? twitter.com/PoliticsJOE_UK…
