Paperback LIVING BETTER out now. The bookshops are open again and the best bookstores are among the best places on earth! So even if you don’t buy mine do visit a bookshop (OK, get mine too .... and if you already got it in Hardback get PPB for a friend)
What we are witnessing is the UK's equivalent of the storming of the Capitol. Johnson should no longer be PM and everybody bar a few fanatics knows it, but (with the Met's assistance) an outrageous attempt is being made to keep him in office. 1/4

UK democracy RIP
No one will accept a Westminster cover-up.
If the UK government refuses to publish the full unredacted report it will prove, yet again, that Westminster is utterly corrupt and broken beyond repair.
It won't save Boris Johnson's skin. It will only add to the calls for him to go.
Britain’s openness to dirty money is a national security problem and a diplomatic embarrassment. We can’t stand up to Russian aggression abroad while facilitating corruption at home.
The government’s stubborn refusal to act is inexcusable.
The Sue Gray report is irrelevant.
The problem with Johnson is Johnson. Either Conservative MPs remove him for his continual lying or they don’t. If they don’t, the Nolan norms are broken; Westminster politics is broken; UK politics is resolutely Trumpian.
