Honoured to have been able to present about tracheostomy weaning post TBI today at the international @MENArehab congress. Great to work jointly with physiotherapist Kerry Alexander and our neuro-rehab team, and thanks to Dr Anwar! @CUH_SLT@CUH_Physio@KerryAl27309288@fahim1265
I would say - and for once I'm actually vaguely qualified to comment - that BBC managers, already bruised by lack of access to ministers, have bowed to pressure from the government & let Emily Maitlis down very badly.
The Stay Alert slogan was rejected by the leaders of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, but Johnson stuck with Cummings' new slogan. Now we know why. With this ticking bomb ready to go off for the past month, the Stay at Home message needed erasing from the podium #cummmings
I know it is tough to lose a trusted adviser at the height of crisis, but when it’s a choice of that or integrity of vital public health advice, the latter must come first. That’s the judgment I and, to her credit, Catherine Calderwood reached. PM and Cummings should do likewise.
“I am transport secretary, this is beyond my area of expertise!”
Grant Shapps hits the buffers, careers off the road, sinks his boat, engineers a massive trainwreck and crashes off the runway
The BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg is now commenting on other journalist’s posts in an attempt to defend Cummings.
In what world is that ok?!
More than 300 health and care workers have died for heaven’s sake. twitter.com/bbclaurak/stat…
I cannot stand Gavin Williamson talking about how school is the only real safe place for many poor and disadvantaged children. Yes, it’s true. But *your* government’s policies have only made that worse. Child poverty has risen because of what *your* party has done.
What would happen if you gave an Apprentice candidate 2 hours to design a pandemic slogan.
'We should make it look as radioactive as possible'
'And it should say #StayAlert'
'But that doesn't make any se.....
'Print it, I'm team leader on this task and we've a deadline here'
Incredible. The statistician cited by name by Johnson at PMQs yesterday tells him to do one.
Meanwhile, 400,000 gowns they couldn’t stop boasting about buying from Turkey are *all* unusable.
But now is not the time... twitter.com/d_spiegel/stat…
Calm, confident and devastating first question from Keir Starmer in his first #PMQs with Boris Johnson.
The UK now has the highest official covid-19 death toll in Europe and the second highest in the world.
"How on earth did it come to this?"
"Wash thirteen times a day in Domestos, dry yourself on a sunbed each time for two hours, then inject a quart of Dettol, it's so simple, I've been doing it all my life and I look great, don't I look great? people always say I look great"
For any #JaneAusten fans who (sensitive souls like myself) are trying to keep the current dread at bay, I'll be making #TheLongbournLetters available for free on Kindle in the coming days. A few laughs are assured. Going to try to do something nice/kind/uplifting everyday.
The news story here, which the BBC for some inexplicable reason have buried in the article, is that 88% of Tory ads were found to misleading, compared to 0% for Labour.
The Tories are objectively running a campaign of lies bbc.co.uk/news/amp/techn…
