'Lynch calmly responded: “There is plenty of money in the country, it’s just a matter of whether you want to get some of it and distribute it more equitably.” '

'The UK currently ranks as the world’s sixth largest economy, while wealth inequality remains high and continues to rise, with the top 10% of the UK population owning a staggering 57% of wealth in 2021. This compares to the bottom 50% owning less than 5% of the wealth.'

@davidallengreen whilst I'll be glad to get rid of the current lot, I'm afraid of what's to come.

Listening to these animations hurts. Painful reminders of what has been lived so far, and what is to come.

You could have been observing my life. The animations resonate so strongly, it's painful.

"Abandoned, forgotten about..."
"The move from job to no job... friends to no friend... this is my life now and it's not going to stop after 18 years."
"People tell me to look after myself first but I don't have time."
"I was 12 stone and now I'm 19 and I didn't notice it happen..."
"I had hobbies..."
"... I have to fight or beg for everything..."

No doubt familiar to far too many parents. #SEN #ASD

@anathema_device I confess complete ignorance of the intricacies of Australian politics, but what an utterly STUPID thing to say!

@Wen I know. Wes Streeting gives me the 'heebie jeebies'. And as for Starmer... Pffft...

The last decade and more have been diabolical, but who on earth can imagine what's to come?

It's terrifying.

I'm old enough to remember things being different. I pity those who can't...

@Wen yes indeed, but I can't just roll over without protest.

I thought I'd tag it onto our 'conversation' so that it might be seen by those who thought it relevant. I should have commented though, rather than just lazily posting.

I've not been well for a few weeks now and have felt dizzy and 'odd' all day, so forgive me. 'Fuzzy brains' should keep away from the keyboard!

Go well. ✊🏻

Starmer says he's a socialist...

How much alone time vs socializing do you need?

For me there are a few people who are usually equalizing, and I can just be around them, so I won't count that. But generally, I find about 3 times a week, I'm game for socializing. A day in between to rest is usually nice, but the larger the gathering or if we go somewhere particularly noisy or I'm meeting new people that involves more effort, and my social battery empties sooner. I'm very curious where everyone else falls on this!

@RickiTarr the pandemic has changed what would have been my response to this question.

I care for someone who is terrified of COVID and we lived like hermits for almost 4 years. This has had an impact on our mental health and also changed my personality.

I've gone from being a gregarious creature to being exhausted by interaction. The person for whom I care said as an ASD person she'd been "in training for this all her life" yet still struggled at times. It hasn't changed her personality tho'.

Where do the BBC find these people to interview?

(Residents of the East Worthing and Shoreham seat.)

"They've helped us more than anybody... Tried to help the poorer rather than the richer..."

"He's been there through everything for us... I'd be so gutted. I just want Conservative."

So say two people on their way to a foodbank through their missing teeth.

EH!

Brainwashed.

I don't know which planet they're living on!

@mkwadee I meant that particular 'cats in a boxes' cartoon. Excuse my warped attempt at 'humour'.(Of course I scrolled through more of your timeline... just in case you were secretly a UKIP supporter or had other distasteful predilections.) 😹 😹 😹

Have a lovely day Khurram. ✊🏻

@anathema_device I read a piece about this soldier, Hugh Thompson Jnr, recently.

I tried to imagine what it must have felt like for him to stand up for his principles as he did, whilst the 'sheep' around him were mercilessly killing.

What an amazing human, him and those few who supported him.

@dan613 @patrickworld 😂 😂 😂

Thank you guys. I needed something to make me smile.

The 'news' is dire. The people supposedly in control have lost their sanity... so having something to make me chuckle is precious, amid the frustration that I can't fix the world (Ukraine, Palestine, Syria, Sudan et al... and don't get me started on the mess that is the UK though of course that's self-inflicted.)

Have a great day both of you. Keep safe.

Jana is singing the song of her people to a bloody enormous cockroach up on the apex of our pitched ceiling. Even super tall husband can’t lift her that high. The only hope is that she will persuade cockroach fren to come down so she can take him to supper 😄

    @Skepticat oh my goodness!

    I can't imagine how an American feels, looking at this. But as a British person... 'Shocked' doesn't begin to cover it.

    However, I well understand the loneliness of being the 'black sheep'. Sending warm wishes from 'across the pond'... 🤗

    @Skepticat I know it's hard. I always felt like the cuckoo in the nest, didn't belong.

    I think I've been looking for unconditional love ever since. And thinking I've found it in all the wrong places! (In other words, I've had a disastrous love life!)

    From what I've seen of your posts (I cannot say "toots" 🥴 ) it seems you have done better. I do hope so! 🤗
