Jacob Rees-Mogg says MP’s should continue to refuse to wear masks in the Commons because they “know each other”. Wow, and here’s us thinking the virus only goes after people we don’t know. Thank God for arm chair epidemiologist Rees-Mogg.pic.twitter.com/xluioUeeuG

"We need to pass it." - Well said
On Friday, assisted dying will be debated in Westminster for the first time in 6 years.
The potential of this Bill to transform all our lives and deaths for the better is colossal.
