Copy of DM I have sent to those members of the Cabinet who follow me and who have not yet blocked me. It is sent to Matt Hancock but could apply to them all ...

Very pleased to unveil the sheet music of the tune I wrote in memory of a great friend of ours, George Mackie, who died during lockdown and whose funeral his many many friends could not attend because - guess what - the majority of people are upstanding law-abiding citizens with a sense of regard for the safety of others and a belief that whatever you think of the government of the day society only works if we at least obey the law and listen to government instructions in a crisis. Another close friend died at the start of lockdown, Syd Young. He was more than a friend to me, he was a mentor and someone who helped me at the lowest point of my life and many times thereafter. It hurt not to be able to attend his funeral, which only his wife and three children could go to. But again, in common with hundreds of others who wanted to be there, I obeyed the government guidelines. Just as I am continuing to do in not going to see the latest addition to our family up north. The fact that @borisjohnson and his nodding dog ministers with their cut and paste tweets for Durham Dom cannot seem to understand the outrage their arrogance has unleashed is unfathomable. People might understand it if they saw a Prime Minister and a government at least competent and on top of things. But they don’t. They are a PM more interesting in saving Cummings than saving the country. I for one won’t rest till they are gone. RIP Syd RIP George - at least you don’t have to see the utter shit show this shower of charlatans have made of the country ...

Introducing you to the latest work of the excellent political artist Kaya Mar ...

For those of you interested in the utter shit show that is @borisjohnsonuk trying to hang onto his friend Durham Dom here is a useful aide-memoire so you know who were the super spineless who did as ordered and cut and paste the pathetic defence of Durham Dom. Then the mere spineless who retweeted someone else. Then Shapps who debased himself at the press briefing. And then a few others whose names most people don’t know but some of whom may have shown some spine. Or perhaps they are being held in reserve for the second wave when the first set or lies falls apart and a new set has to be invented. This is what happens when venality meets total incompetence. ...
