Twitter Web App : My good friend and colleague Richard Burgon has been relentless in campaigning for #ZeroCovid

Delighted he will be joining us this Sunday. You can too. twitter.com/ZeroCovidNow1/…

iPhone : The UK has the lowest level of sick pay & the lowest level of unemployment benefit in the OECD.

If we're trying to bring infections down, increasing sick pay to match living wage, keeping the £20 uplift to Universal Credit & extending eligibility for both would be a good start.

Twitter Web App : However you look at it, this represents a colossal failure of the British state, once the world’s leader in hygiene and public health

Twitter Web App : Scandalous

Reports that the vaccine supply is to be cut in half for large swathes of Northern England next week, Yorkshire & the North East, is absolutely appalling and without justification.

A point I put to Matt Hancock in the HoC just now!

Twitter Web App : This is a global pandemic

Only global co-operation, willingness to learn from each and pooled resources can defeat it twitter.com/DrEricDing/sta…

Twitter Web App : It’s completely crazy that Priti Patel is blaming our problems on non-compliance. We didn’t get into this situation because a few people had house parties.

Generally, compliance is really good. If we want to bring R down further we should tighten the rules.

Stop blaming us.

Twitter Web App : The Prime Minister of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Boris Johnson, has met with NO families of the Covid Victims, NONE of the 80,000+

He refused to listen to their experiences & their learning

He has chosen to not look behind the numbers or the graphs

Our invitation stands

iPhone : Remember when the Tories told us #COVID19 doesn't spread in schools?

The data shows teachers are nearly 2x more likely to catch it with staff at special schools 7x more likely to get it.

Prioritising teachers & other key workers for phase 2 vaccinations is critical.
