💯💯💯 I don't know how it happened, and I'm sure we did nothing to deserve them, but these generations of young people are amazing and it's a privilege to know and work with them.

One Year… One single year.
This is @GretaThunberg at age 15, alone outside the Swedish Parliament about a year ago, in August 2018, holding the first school climate strike.
Only a year ago.
She’s not alone anymore.

It's not complicated. If the executive really did abuse his power to push a foreign government to knock out his political rival before the next election, that's either too much for you or nothing ever will be. Don't need a statutory citation. We're a free republic or we're not.

Every time Trump breaks a window, Republicans in Congress obediently sweep up the glass. An overriding lesson of his 3 years is that one party, even w/control of one chamber, cannot uphold democratic norms on its own. It takes both parties (& courts) or there is no constraint https://t.co/Zr6fEQC1G6

Labour has finally managed to think up something as mad as the Tories kicking out 21 of their most senior MPs: abolish their rebellious deputy leader, on the eve of a pre-election party conference. Brexit is smashing Britain’s two parties of Government to pieces.
