Oh look, another reason never ever ever ever to vote for the Tories.

Seriously. You might as well put the X on your own eyes.

Well now. This is what taking back control means. Control over our borders. Control over our money. Control over our democracy. And someone IS taking back control, and it might be the Russians. Too bad no one has thought about writing a report about it.

Truly shocking pictures from Venice, from South Yorkshire, from California, from South Africa, from Sydney ... What does it take to get real serious action on climate change?@ExtinctionR

We recently launched a ‘Centre for Poetry and Poetics’ in Cambridge’s English Faculty, here’s the website for it:

This is in fact my dream 2020. “They will ruin 2020 with two referendums, they will ruin the economy with out-of-control debt, they will put taxes up for everyone &, instead of an Australian points system, we’ll have uncontrolled & unlimited immigration.””

Today I’ve been in the UK for 10 years, 1 month, 2 weeks, 3 days. Yesterday I found out that the @UKHomeOffice decided to refuse my application for Indefinite Leave to Remain. Thread for details but basically #HostileEnvironment
