Coming up: the most extraordinary thread I’ve ever written. On how we blew over £150m and Andrew Mills (a Government adviser) seems to have made a fortune.

But let’s start with introductions. THREAD /1
Remember when the Tories endlessly praised a 100-year-old for dragging himself around a garden to raise £32million and then spent £150million buying 50 million unusable masks from an offshore banker with no history of supplying medical equipment
Spoiler: they were the wrong kind of masks.

The problem with this government isn’t just that it is grossly grossly corrupt. It is also grossly grossly incompetent

The second is that, apparently, Government was prepared to enter into a £252m contract – the largest we have yet seen for the purchase of PPE – with a £100 company owned by an adviser to Liz Truss (although, see above, you’re not allowed to know that anymore). /10 pic.twitter.com/OH3NsrArTN
The new *daily* allowance for peers in the House of Lords is £323. The *monthly* allowance for a single person under 25 on Universal Credit is £342.72.

  • Arsenal firing 55 staff when we're owned by a multi-billionaire, have just made £££ by winning the FA Cup & qualifying for Europe, & pay Mesut Ozil £350k-a-week to sit on his arse, is morally indefensible & not what I expect from a club with our heritage. Shameful decision.

  • This Nottingham building was finished 6 years ago; flats appear to have been sold with 125 year leases? but already cracks in concrete cladding and I see a temporary roof appear. I worry about the quality of modern construction and a timebomb for leasehold property.
