Top line of this story is that a firm with links to Gove and Cummings got a £840K Covid-19 contract without open tender. But as is often the case, it is the *details* further down that deserve most scrutiny here. https://t.co/YvjVggbv1g
It is now becoming ridiculous https://t.co/3l5M2IWvtO

I did not know who else had signed that letter. I thought I was endorsing a well meaning, if vague, message against internet shaming. I did know Chomsky, Steinem, and Atwood were in, and I thought, good company. The consequences are mine to bear. I am so sorry.
I signed the Harpers letter because there were lots of people who also signed the Harpers letter whose views I disagreed with. I thought that was the point of the Harpers letter. https://t.co/ozFsAmXq9R
This is the biggest political story for some time and it’s depressing that the source didn’t feel comfortable giving it to a British newspaper. The Sydney Morning Herald is not I need hardly add owned by Murdoch. https://t.co/WYmplVmruv
"In 1981, LEGOs were simple and gender-neutral, and the creativity of the child produced the message. In 2014, it’s the reverse: the toy delivers a message to the child, and this message is weirdly about gender.” As a 70s child, 2010s parent: exactly this. https://t.co/c5QyLCWneN
My God, this presidency... "President Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa in late June, along with large protests that accompanied it, 'likely contributed' to a dramatic surge in new coronavirus cases, Tulsa Health Director Dr. Bruce Dart said Wednesday." https://t.co/DI2eKqNCSa
NEW - the PM has authorised a “compensation payment” of almost £250k into Mark Sedwill’s pension pot. https://t.co/F0NF25DKYm

In Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS. The Dems think it would be bad for them politically if U.S. schools open before the November Election, but is important for the children & families. May cut off funding if not open!

When 3 parties stand for a constituency under First Past the Post, a seat can be won with just over 33% of the votes. When 4 parties stand, it's 25%. 5 parties, 20%... This is how we end up with Parliaments that don't reflect how the people voted. #ChangeTheVotingSystem https://t.co/bXYlSn5SWd
UK's voting system is corrupt & anti-democratic, when Boris Johnson wins 56% of the seats with less than 44% of the votes. https://t.co/e03ErD3DaY
What an extraordinary story. Bad luck, Facebook. The company-wide effort to brush the grossly distorted elections of 2016 under the carpet just hit a setback. 3.5 years on, a massive $308k influence operation affiliated with *Roger Stone* is unmasked... https://t.co/4MP4cFf0I7
My bit on prime minister Boris Johnson being a big man and blaming care home workers https://t.co/azhXZQOYrR
