iPhone : Watching #C4Debate, hearing so many pledges about righting wrongs and so many promises about tackling injustice, makes me wish that these men had been in government so they could have had a chance to implement them

Oh, wait .....

TweetDeck : Will we hear anything other than Brexit in the #Toryleadership debate on Channel 4 News tonight?

When are candidates going to address the #ClimateBreakdown?

A week in and there is near silence on the biggest issue facing us all

iPhone : “Their crime was to help the wrong kind of human beings - those wearing the wrong colour skin, believing in the wrong God, possessing the wrong passport or no passport at all”.

Powerful piece from Kenan Malik on this moral obscenity - Pia Klemp is a hero not a criminal twitter.com/kenanmalik/sta…

iPhone : Huge congratulations David for all you’ve done - fantastic result at last - wishing you, your mum and your family all the very very best after all you’ve been through 💚 twitter.com/david_challen/…

iPhone : Really great to catch up & inspiring to hear of groups coming together to build community homes! Will raise issues of Leasehold reform & ongoing funding via Community Housing Fund with minister, & get back to you #Brighton twitter.com/bahclt/status/…

We urgently need a strong regulator to protect everyone in rented homes

iPhone : The Green New Deal is making waves across Europe, and we have a historic obligation to make it a reality.

Twitter Web App : So a serial liar, racist and one of most incompetent ministers ever leads the poll in the #Toryleadership contest

Conservative MPs should hang their heads in shame

iPhone : So sorry I couldn’t make it, and glad it was such a success!
Thank you so much for all you do to make our city a better place - carers are unsung heroes and need and deserve all our support 🙂#CarersWeek #Brighton twitter.com/brightoncarers…

iPhone : Refugees who have found safety in UK want to learn English

Government says they want them to learn - but then cuts the funding for classes & support

Everyone seeking refuge here should have chance to learn English

Twitter Web App : Jan 2019 - Australia suffers yet more record high temperatures and extreme drought
