The gift that keeps on giving…

“In his epic poems Homer often refers to nectar as the drink of the gods and which other substance as their food?”

Gerald is absolutely right - the UK should offer to take 30,000 refugees from the EU annually. In return France should take back all those who currently cross the channel. A proper refugee coalition would allow countries to burden share + help those most in need The Rest Is Politics

Till then: 🇫🇷🇬🇧🇪🇺 should show how democracies CAN stop irregular migration without violating human rights (& with no need for Rwanda).

- 🇫🇷 to offer quickly to take back all who cross channel after day x

- 🇬🇧 to offer to resettle 30,000 refugees from EU per year

That’s incorrect, badly so, check the data. NHS needs 3% a year to keep up with older population, new tech etc, but only got 1% after 2010 - better than most depts, but not enough. NHS held up well under pressure - even in Covid catastrophe. Getting harder now: exhausted staff

No sympathy expected for MPs - but if - as everyone insists - it is such a cushy over-paid and idle profession why are so many MPs, who had careers ahead of them, leaving politics?

Amazing thread - illustrating why Politics has become such a toxic profession - and why so few people - presumably including those attacking Sajid Javid below - actually want to become a politician themselves.

The Rest Is Politics Rory Stewart ALASTAIR CAMPBELL Helen Clark Great listening to Helen Clark, she has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Once opposed to electoral reform Helen is now firmly in favour. Produced a better, fairer New Zealand democracy. The UK needs to catch up now!

One of the greatest pieces of art ever made. Just look at those details. Imagine being someone standing at St John´s Church in Ghent on 6 May 1432 when it is revealed.
