We’ve lost our compass. The story is not what Trump or his son said. Or how the search will affect the midterms. The story is that a very sober, careful AG, who was the Chief Judge of the D.C. Circuit authorized and a federal judge signed, a warrant to search Trump’s premises. twitter.com/sifill_/status…

After several weeks of dealing w/this circus, I have something I’d like to say about the @NewYorker, the legacy media world & the tactics of white hegemony.

Can't imagine the hell Archie Battersbee's family have been going through. But we need to talk about the organisation that represents them, and has represented other families in similar positions. Sobering report from @Sarah_Woolley for @openDemocracy ⬇️ opendemocracy.net/en/archie-batt…

This is distressing. SMUG has done such important work in the face of "Kill the Gays" legislation and other terrible attempts to target the queer community there. twitter.com/BBCAfrica/stat…

“Sunak found out the hard way, and too late, that people want to be lied to. They want the fantasy, because waking up to real life is too painful.” - this is really impressive from ⁦@NesrineMaliktheguardian.com/commentisfree/…

Let’s talk about racism! Most white people at prestigious magazines don’t ever want to talk about race or diversity at all. Why? It's primarily because they’ve been allowed to exist in a world where their mastheads resemble member registries at Southern country clubs circa 1950..

Some people might have noticed that I disagreed the Bank of England’s decision to increase interest rates yesterday. It was completely irresponsible, but what happens now? Let me offer some opinion on that and a comprehensive plan to get us through this mess. A thread…..

Here’s a nice thing. The TV version of This Is Going To Hurt is all about the mental health of doctors, and culminates with the death by suicide of a junior doctor called Shruti (spoiler alert). There is a scene where a tree is planted in her memory, shot at Ealing Hospital. 1/3

I am not the only person. This is not the only case. It is clear to me now that there are many hugely talented women missing today from our industry or not at the level they could've been because they have been sexually assaulted or harassed early on...theneweuropean.co.uk/lucy-siegle-ni…

I think there’s going to be mass repossessions next year. I remember that happening in the early 90s. Some people smashed their places up, daubing it in graffiti in anger and frustration. Inflation wasn’t as high then as it will be next year. This is a disaster waiting to happen.
Wow. Sandy Hook parents' lawyer is revealing that Alex Jones' lawyers sent him the contents of Jones' phone BY MISTAKE. "12 days ago, your attorneys messed up and sent me a digital copy of every text" Jones has sent for years. "You know what perjury is?" the lawyer asks.

I'm coming to the end of my fixed price energy tariff. In the last year, I have paid £1224 for my gas and electricity. In the coming year, I will pay £5444 - an extra £4220. I am a single parent on a relatively low income. Where is this extra £4k supposed to come from?? 😱

Really sensible, sensitive opinion piece by @PatrickStrud My (trans) daughter was lucky enough to be referred to the Tavistock’s gender identity service. She (and us) was fortunate to benefit from highly-skilled & thoughtful support. All our children deserve access to this. twitter.com/emmaloffhagen/…

"Kids need decent, specialist support to figure out the way forward. Sometimes this means how to align their gender identity with their physical body. Sometimes presenting differently is enough. Often it means improving or saving lives." twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

Patrick is one of the few mainstream media journalists who’s prepared to listen to the many Trans people who’ve gone through the NHS gender clinic system ⬇️ twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

Do you know what happens when young people go to a gender identity clinic? Here's some insights from having spent years interviewing trans ppl, their families and clinicians who work with them. All the heat around this issue has obscured the reality. inews.co.uk/opinion/the-ro…
Please read, ESPECIALLY if you’ve been critical of The Tavistock. It’s a really important piece by @PatrickStrud The row over The Tavistock only highlights why young trans people need better NHS care not myth inews.co.uk/opinion/the-ro…

Thoughtful piece as usual by @PatrickStrud. Maybe listen to trans people before pontificating? inews.co.uk/opinion/the-ro…

"I wish desperately that more pundits and politicians would spend time with young trans people, and hear them, listen to their experiences, before making assumptions." 🔵@PatrickStrudd inews.co.uk/opinion/the-ro…s

"My grandfather was forced to write with his right hand. When schools stopped doing this, there was a sudden increase in people writing with their left hand. It’s not that there are more trans people now, but that society quashed their existence before." inews.co.uk/opinion/the-ro…
"We hear about those who regret transitioning. But this is a minuscule proportion (about 1 per cent) and we hear about it precisely because it’s rare. There’s an adage in newsrooms: dog bites man isn’t a story, but man bites dog is." inews.co.uk/opinion/the-ro…
"I wish more pundits + politicians would spend time with young trans people and listen to their experiences, before making assumptions. The extent to which adults mistakenly think they know best is never more pronounced than when it comes to sexual orientation or gender identity"
Me on the myths peddled about trans youth + gender clinics. "What’s needed now, more than ever, is compassion, understanding, shorter waiting times, regional services, and more staff to give to our gender nonconforming youth what the NHS does best: help." inews.co.uk/opinion/the-ro…

Being a radical feminist must mean being a trans ally at the same time. How can we liberate cis women and leave behind one of the most marginalised groups in our society? My thoughts in the @Independent. independent.co.uk/voices/terf-tr…

“We absolutely should be cracking down on those type of companies [TikTok],” says Liz Truss, who is the most mocked politician on TikTok right now. #BBCOurNextPM
Someone tell Sunak that constantly interrupting is like constantly drinking - people start backing away. #BBCOurNextPM
Liz Truss does not know how to pronounce @faisalislam’s name.
These fixed grins will never stop haunting me. #BBCOurNextPM

This is how politicians should do TikTok. @HannahB4LiviMP is just talking like a human being about her most recent advice survey + how she tries to help her constituents. More of this and less braying in the Commons? People would feel better about MPs. vm.tiktok.com/ZMNQRVFBV/?k=1

This thread is, sadly, correct and needs to be said. How do we know? Apart from anything else, certain survivors of the 1980s AIDS crisis like @MyFabDisease have seen it before, seen the mistakes made then, and are now saying exactly this. twitter.com/OwenJones84/st…
