Officials close to inquiry said to have been shocked by some claims including individuals being physically sick before meetings, regularly in tears and, in more than one case, left feeling suicidal by alleged behaviour.

I think the other scandal here is this: William Shawcross, the Commissioner of Public Appointments 😳

Public surprised that some get tax deals and others not arises from the illusion that HMRC/ tax administrations main aim is to stop tax evasion. It is not. The main aim is to maximise tax revenue collections, and minimise enforcement costs. It's not the same.

The Labour Files released months ago. Why are British mainstream media outlets only reaching out to me now? Do you know Starmer’s mate, Baroness Ruth Smeeth? The CEO of the “Index on Censorship” AND Director of “Hope Not Hate,” isn’t who you think she is. #HalimaFiles

Here are the first 8 minutes of the new BBC documentary that Modi has banned. Watch it. Share it. Spread the word. Modi was “directly responsible” for the Gujarat pogrom of 2002 & Modi / BJP / RSS continue their atrocities against Muslims today.

#Zahawi update: his lawyers have written to me, denying that HMRC investigated him under COP 9, the procedure for investigating fraud. Since they are in such a helpful mood, I'm optimistic they'll answer some further questions. Full correspondence below:

We need to export Democracy & Freedom there 🇺🇸 🇬🇧 🛩️ 💣
This tweet is unavailable
This is what you call covering for your friends. Trying to play ignorant. Press better not let this issue go
This is embarrassing… James Cleverly basically saying Zahawi owed tax because he was a successful businessman Prick
Remarkable lack of curiosity from James Cleverly - another Govt minister conveniently choosing “not to know” about status of Nadhim Zahawi’s tax affairs & seems to suggest there should be different rules for super wealthy in business - they just don’t get it #BBCLauraK

Bet he doesn’t even know if tax due is negotiable or even disputable
I think the government is going to have to do a bit better than this… theguardian.com/politics/202…
Brexit Dividends & Sunlit Uplands they were all scrapping over

The internet never forgets. Here’s the BBC documentary that YouTube banned showing Modi’s direct role in the Gujarat pogrom of 2002. Modi is a war criminal & should be shunned by the world. drive.google.com/file/d/1CM4…

Was given centre position but keeps drifting towards right wing
honest to god think this is the funniest politics related video in years. starmer just sort of aimlessly wandering around, getting stuck in and randomly kicking in the vague direction of the ball before pursuing at a glacial pace, as the ref(?) demands the kids pass him the ball

You know this tweet had to be approved by the CC and head of comms. Probably reviewed and rewritten a few times
Following the circulation of a video on social media showing an individual failing to wear a seat belt while a passenger in a moving car in Lancashire we have today (Friday, Jan 20) issued a 42-year-old man from London with a conditional offer of fixed penalty.
Following the BBC documentary that aired this week, the Foreign Office must come clean about what it knew about the Gujarat Massacre.

Man trying trying to redeem himself and the last deed he can find is from 2021. I’m following this guy for shits & giggles 😂
In 2021 Tank the Terrier, ran off & was put in the rescue. His owner had no car or money to get him back. £170 cost in total which I raised. I also fetched Tank, he was a nuisance in the car. Got there in the nick of time as he was about to have his bits off. Hankies ready 👇👇
