Paying less to teachers & nurses outside London “is no longer my policy” say Liz Truss but profiteering by oil companies still is. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/liz-truss-never-proposed-paying-public-sector-workers-less-outside-london-brandon-lewis_uk_62ea1761e4b0c55016153dd7

Will the BT CEO work even harder with his £850,000 pay increase to £3,5m than ten doctors?
If he gave key workers half the £700 million dividend (of £2billion pandemic profit) they’d get £9000 instead of a £1500 real pay cut. Watch:-

Imagine what we could have done with the money, to pay Belgium 55 times the average electricity price to avert a blackout, had we invested in renewables earlier. https://www.energylivenews.com/2022/07/26/uk-bought-electricity-from-belgium-at-record-prices-last-week-to-keep-the-lights-on/

From 2015 the Tories choked off renewable energy - knowing onshore wind is popular, nuclear expensive and fossil fuel insecure & catastrophic - making a problem into an energy crisis https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/may/10/challenge-conservatives-energy-priorities-cuts-renewables

To get a stronger economy, better paid jobs & tackle the cost of living crisis we need faster export growth but ⁦@BorisJohnson⁩ ‘s poorly negotiatedEU deal is holding businesses back.

Conservative leadership contest: the proposed tax cuts are big but aren't the answer to the cost of living crisis. Just 15% of gains from scrapping the NICs rise go to poorest half of households, who are most affected by rising energy bills, while 28% of gains go to richest 5% 🧵

Chickens after 2 years in congested space have no feathers & stop laying, but bought for £1 by Summit Good farm, after a few weeks, recover their feathers & lay again:)
Surely they should be sent to Ruanda!

You remember when Trump said he’d build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it?

You remember how we thought he was a colossal bell for it?

And just look at Suella Braverman…

Our Attorney General no less

Telling us it was project fear

And though her lies have been exposed

And billions lost

Not only did she not apologise nor face consequences…

She ran for f*cking PM.

1) Watch Geraint Davies nail it

2) Observe the behaviour, heckling and hand actions from the Tory benches

3) Grimace as Boris Johnson ignores the very real and serious question and talks utter shite yet again

Our politics is in the bin.

Johnson refuses to help 3.7 million people on student loans facing 7% interest rates from September choosing instead to let his city friends make money out of the crisis #PMQs

"Will he help 3.7m people on student loans since this government took power, who face 7% interest rates this September as well as inflation on heating and eating and rent?

"Or will he help his city friends making money out of this crisis?"
