Am I the only one sick of hearing "We have to respect the referendum result"? Such a cowardly thing to say. It conveniently avoids facing the fact it was a marginal and nationally divisive result on an ill-defined question won by a campaign of misinformation and illegality.

If it makes you uncomfortable then that's a good. It's saying there are some shit men who are bullies and there are the men who do the right thing. If this feels like an attack then you know which one you are. It's not an attack on men. It's asking the shit ones to be better

Once again, I'm very much okay with this shift in cultural standards.

"Be a good human" is getting ever-more commercially viable. I'm down with a future where it's cool to be protective and proactive at making the world better. https://t.co/iYsGxBQ9QF

Can stars jump on the #10YearChallenge too? Supernova remnant Cassiopeia A has gotten more beautiful over time, in my eyes. About 11,000 light years away, #NASA @chandraxray images of Cas A show an expanding shell of hot gas produced by the explosion. pic.twitter.com/xoKbNtbz0v

- that I should get back in the kitchen

When this is over and those who shafted us - Farage, Rees-Mogg, Boris, Cameron, Davis, Gove, May, Redwood and Co - are exposed for the criminal damage they have done to our country, remember one person did the right thing: John Bercow. He defended our Parliamentary democracy.
