Dominic Raab won’t approve but I did indeed go the opera last week (it cost me £62).

Tom Eisner, a working-class lad from Buxton near where I grew up kindly invited me. He’s been playing violin at Glyndebourne for 36 years.

Never let anyone tell you you’re not good enough. 🎻

At least half a dozen Tory MPs are talking about defecting to Labour, according to Labour insiders. Westminster was full of speculation that a defection could take place at PMQ's two weeks ago.

While it did not happen, the recent by-elections are thought to be a new trigger

Oslo Pride has been cancelled because of a terrorist attack on a gay bar. This is why Pride is still important and definitely a protest.

Thinking of everyone in Norway touched by this tragedy 🇳🇴 🌈

Bus companies must hold their nerve.

It can’t be right that after almost 2 years of support from us & govt, companies withdraw unprofitable services.

We’re ready to transform the network with BSIP money early 2023.

I urge bus companies - do the right thing & stay the course
