Sajid Javid says we need to pay £20 for a GP appointment and £66 to go to A&E as a way to solve the NHS funding crisis. He’s wrong because there are so many better options in my new report on funding the NHS. A thread…..

Snow Bros Nick & Tom is a bargain on the Switch store atm. Certainly more reliable than my boot PCB. Lots of arcade fun for £2.69 #NintendoSwitch

Hmmm. I just had a bizarre experience, involving a global news organisation and a trillion dollar corporation. (I got caught in the middle, so... owch.) It’s not the sort of experience the people involved usually talk about in public… so I think I’ll talk about it in public. 🧵

My first film of 2023 was The Banshees of Inisherin. Funny and sad with lots of depth. I really enjoyed it.
