iPhone : I was born in Hungary and I am a Roma!

I am a Hungarian national and have Roma ethnicity!

I can be both Hungarian and Roma at the same time and no #farright can take that away from me! #TiredofRacism #TiredOfRacists #HungarianFarRight #ZeroTolerance #EnoughIsEnough #GoToBed twitter.com/errctweets/sta…

iPhone : SAGE adviser Prof John Edmunds told a science media briefing 8k new infections a day (as calculated by ONS) was “a very high incidence” level - “many of us would prefer to see incidence down to lower levels before we relax measures - lifting the lockdown is a political decision”

iPhone : The historical parallel is with May 1940, 80 years ago

National crisis and a Tory PM incapable of dealing with it

Only Neville Chamberlain was a far more impressive politician than Boris Johnson

iPhone : Sure Roy Greenslade, Hadley Freeman writes well

But we must always assess her jounalistic merit knowing she was a leading McCarthyite tirelessly lying about and smearing and finally destroying a decent Socialist who was NOT repeat NOT antisemitic (but did care about Palestinians) twitter.com/greenslader/st…

Twitter Web App : Well done our intrepid journalists!

But WHERE have you BEEN?

You were mute on Austerity

You barely complained when LYING became routine for politicians

You gleefully smeared and lied about Mr Corbyn

You KNEW AGES AGO Johnson was unfit but - well - you were mute again...

Twitter Web App : Johnson will go (after Cummings) because there's a split in the elite

Enough of the elite know that Johnson is UNFIT(like Chamberlain was in 1940) and must be replaced, for the sake of the country, the Tory Party itself and THEIR sake

He'll be replaced by someone more competent

iPhone : Quite chilling to see a co-operative CNN journalist get arrested live on TV

Twitter Web App : State schools should reopen for all children ONLY WHEN
1. Private schools, like Eton, reopen
2. MPs are back crowded together on the benches at Westminster
3. Lords and Ladies are back crowded together in the House of Lords

IS THERE A PLAUSIBLE COUNTER-ARGUMENT?

Twitter Web App : But I’ve no spade to follow men like them.

Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests.
I’ll dig with it.

THE END

Twitter Web App : Nicking and slicing neatly, heaving sods
Over his shoulder, going down and down
For the good turf. Digging.

The cold smell of potato mould, the squelch and slap
Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
Through living roots awaken in my head.

Twitter Web App : By God, the old man could handle a spade.
Just like his old man.

My grandfather cut more turf in a day
Than any other man on Toner’s bog.
Once I carried him milk in a bottle
Corked sloppily with paper. He straightened up
To drink it, then fell to right away

Twitter Web App : The coarse boot nestled on the lug, the shaft
Against the inside knee was levered firmly.
He rooted out tall tops, buried the bright edge deep
To scatter new potatoes that we picked,
Loving their cool hardness in our hands.

3/?

Twitter Web App : Till his straining rump among the flowerbeds
Bends low, comes up twenty years away
Stooping in rhythm through potato drills
Where he was digging.

DIGGING BY SEAMUS HEANEY

Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests; snug as a gun.

Under my window, a clean rasping sound
When the spade sinks into gravelly ground:
My father, digging. I look down
