Last quote by Zoe Williams

The public sector was fragmented. But pay freezes and cuts to services have finally brought it together. When the prime minister raises the terror threat level to critical, as Theresa May did for 48 hours after Friday’s London tube bombing, you think you know what that means. And in some ways, you do. It means another attack is considered “imminent”; it means that, when an attack comes, police response times are futuristically fast – it was eight minutes from the first call to the emergency services during the London Bridge attack to all three terrorists having been fatally shot by police. Yet the inner workings of the critical threat level are less obvious, because one assumes it means extra police officers. In fact, it means existing police officers working longer hours and having their days off cancelled. This is a hot-button issue on Twitter, as the Metropolitan police federation points this out, and people with Twitter handles such as Gooner123 tell them to count themselves lucky they never served a tour in Afghanistan. Yet the public services can no longer be pitted against each other, as a way to neutralise or suffocate their complaints against the government.feedback

Keir Starmer’s intervention has brought this period to an end. So an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman all walk into a pub. Then the Englishman wants to leave for no reason, and they all have to. My kid told me that joke. Between laconic Brexiteries and a whole new constellation of insults around the name and concept of Donald Trump, I have reluctantly concluded that I preferred life when children at primary school had less political awareness. Didn’t dream about the third world war. Didn’t do roleplays where one of them is a wall and the other a Mexican. Things just felt a bit more stable.”.
