NEW: I’m not sure people appreciate quite how bad the Covid situation is in Hong Kong, nor what might be around the corner. First, an astonishing chart. After keeping Covid at bay for two years, Omicron has hit HK and New Zealand, but the outcomes could not be more different.

Devastating piece. Devastating. The anxious generation — what’s bothering Britain’s schoolchildren? “most fragile, inadequately prepared and unhappy group of Year 13 students ever to collect A-level results.”

If you think Nuñez looks good now, just wait until he discovers he's allowed to shoot normally as well

Energy crisis could become a Poll Tax moment. Tory leadership contest happening in a parallel universe. @MartinSLewis is right. (My latest column for @thetimes )

Next week The Guardian will probably publish another article about levels of climate anxiety. Taking no responsibility for the fact that their (false) headlines are making this much worse. Experts do not think that climate meltdown can't be stopped.

*Slightly mind-boggling* scoop: new building is getting blocked in west London because the electricity grid is at capacity. There may not be a fix for A DECADE or more. 🤯 w/ @sjhmorris

Something from me on how the north east is trying to replace coal and shipbuilding with green jobs, despite multiple obstacles…while levelling up remains largely absent from the Tory leadership debate

EXCL: This is the NHS as you’ve never seen it. 19 patients crammed on trolleys in corridors unable to get into a full A&E. 92 year-old May has been stuck on hers for 3 days. Outside, ambulances queue, delayed getting to other calls. Patients have died waiting. #ITVTonight
