agbuckley: Mind-bogglingly bad pol-econ interview of Lucy Powell on R4PM just now. 1. "Assume tax cuts for the rich = growth; why does Labour hate growth?" 2. "Assume banker's bonuses make everyone wealthier, but increase inequality. Both by unspecified amounts: what's Labour policy?"

LBC: Labour MP Lucy Powell says that borrowing for tax cuts is the “worse type of borrowing you can do”, as Liz Truss admits this policy will initially benefit the rich more than the poor.

NickTimiraos: Jay Powell ditched his original Jackson Hole speech last month after markets turned excessively optimistic about an inflation turnaround and Fed pivot. The one he delivered was shorter and nuance-free. Inside the “single mandate” central bank:

PinkNews: Labour MP Lucy Powell sparks fierce debate after wearing 'never kissed a Tory' t-shirt to Pride

beatleebum: set it up (2018) 7/10 glen powell is so mouth wateringly gorgeous in this i do not care at all about the rest, it was prob decent for a romcom (i do not watch those), also lucy liu is the coolest woman ever

PinkNews: Labour MP Lucy Powell sparks fierce debate after wearing 'never kissed a Tory' t-shirt to Pride

RajwinderSPal: One of my few red lines never crossed. In fairness, a Tory potential date would undoubtedly have also been repelled by a gobby, opinionated Leftie. But no Leftie ever got out of bed thinking of victimising ppl & making the world a even bigger shit hole.

Independent: 'Like Lucy Powell, I couldn’t date a Tory – politics is too important'

whotdech: lucy powell has definitely kissed a tory or two

BenDunnell: The thing that annoys me about this isn’t so much the message. It’s the fact that Lucy Powell is pissing about like this when she’s 47 and a shadow minister. She should have gone, “No, I’m a grown adult. I’m not putting that on.”

thetimes: Lucy Powell, the shadow culture secretary, attended a Pride rally in Manchester on Saturday in a red T-shirt designed by LGBT+ Labour. The slogan “never kissed a Tory” dates back to 2008

JoeVinson: If you’re angry about a light-hearted t-shirt that’s been in use for 15+ years to fundraise for LGBT+ candidates, just wait until you hear the Tories’ track record on LGBT+ equality. In the meantime, you can buy a t-shirt here:

Pridewest: Labour MP Lucy Powell sparks fierce debate after wearing ‘never kissed a Tory’ t-shirt to Pride

jam3sEForsyth: Who would want to kiss Lucy Powell anyway?

David__Osland: The Daily Mail has criticised Labour MP Lucy Powell for wearing a 'Never Kissed a Tory' T-shirt. This is the newspaper that ran the headline 'Labour must kill vampire Jezza'.

farje: The tories and their for-rent journalists, cheerleaders and sycophants have their knickers in a twist because of this photo of Labour MP Lucy Powell’s T-shirt worn during Manchester’s Pride parade. Tory hypocritical bigots hysterically shouting ‘tolerance, tolerance!’. Hilarious!

Michael09910592: 'Enough political interference!' Labour says it will protect BBC from 'Tory cronyism'

MirrorPolitics: Lucy Powell, MP for Manchester Central, was one of thousands of people who attended Manchester Pride yesterday

mthompson_dr: How many times am I going to see a “funny” remark about Lucy Powell’s ‘never kisses a Tory’ T-shirt. She wants to wear it, yes it’s ridiculous, it’s a free country, the jokes are obvious, it’s not a “hate” crime…. ….let it go. I’m a Tory btw.

Leveller44: Headline Observer "Labour: We will protect the BBC's independence"! We're in the middle of a catastrophic C of L,Energy & Water Pollution crisis, all Starmer & Lucy Powell can come up with is protecting a Tory Establishment organisation,which helped create the situation we're in!

MattCarr55: Tories...playing the victim because of Lucy Powell's t-shirt is precisely the reason why it's impossible to have the slightest respect for them. That, and the fact they wrecked the country and seem to care more about the t-shirt than the millions slipping into poverty.

resolutereader: Lucy Powell is my MP, I voted for her, I disagree with many of her politics, but I applaud her sentiments here. We remember Section28, and we remember their bigotry. Never kissed a Tory. Never will.

Berna_Rossa: Good for Lucy Powell!

obsolete__units: Watch closely and you’ll see Lucy Powell making a sharp exit as soon as she thinks the photo’s been taken

newcomradedelta: I have a T-shirt that says "Never Kissed a Lucy Powell"

Mr_W_Carpenter: Lucy Powell brilliantly demonstrating that Labour have MP's of stunningly low calibre.

elliot_gregs: When you boil it down to the basics Lucy Powell's tweet shows they've learnt nothing from 2019 and from the deservedly visceral hatred and fear people have of Corbyn.

Sewn_apart: Also if there's one decent tory ever its Tracey Crouch. Not as tall as Peter but genuinely decent. Lucy Powell as the shadow. Oh. My. Fkn. Decades Such a vile wastewoman there shows what Labour really think of culture. They'd sell it so far down the river

RichardHytner: Ed Miliband, 'Ed stone' gaffe-prone Lucy Powell and Neil Kinnock supporting Andy Burnham's leadership bid. He must be thrilled about that.

Boadice37198367: James Not=so=Cleverly. Not Lucy Powell. WYTF would ANYONE want to kiss Tory filth.

mps_edits: Lucy Powell Wikipedia article edited anonymously

LukeSt_K: I’m really not sure the upset in the replies. Are there any Tories who want to kiss Lucy Powell?

PerfecWagnerite: There are a number of reasons to find Lucy Powell offensive - remember her charming repeated "oh my God!" disappointment when her own party did surprisingly well in the 2017 election - but this is not one of them.

YorksPudding: Why is this newbie MP so desperate for a kiss from Lucy Powell?

BenObeseJecty: Good to see Lucy Powell wearing the “Never Kissed A Tory” t-shirt as part of Labour’s new campaign where their MPs reveal their biggest regrets.

KeirWillow: If Lucy Powell, the wettest M.P. in parliament is beyond the pale, then the next stop is a military junta

elliot_gregs: I’ve been told that picking up on Lucy Powell’s t-shirt is “doing the work of GBNews” and struggling to see how that’s so different to the narrative about smearing Corbyn by recognising that the papers we don’t like were the only ones willing to tackle his antisemitism etc.

BaneNook: Under no circumstances should you be going to bat for Lucy Powell MP

greendrive1246: Poor old Keir Starmer, he struggles not to look wooden whilst trying to stay woke. When there’s any glimmer of hope you can always rely on his stupid MPs to ensure Labour stay in the sidings indefinitely. This weekends leading low wattage light bulb seems to be Lucy Powell.

British_AOC: Lucy Powell is the British AOC!

thesiriusreport: Powell claims fighting inflation is unconditional, presumably until the entire economic and financial sysyem implodes. It no longer matters what course of action is taken, all roads lead to the same destination.

CountDeadWomen: 27 January 2022: Lucy Powell, 21, was found dead at home Birmingham. Her partner, Gregory Duhamel, 47, smothered her before killing himself.

Poem of the day

Robert Service Poem
The Sunshine Seeks My Little Room
 by Robert Service

The sunshine seeks my little room
To tell me Paris streets are gay;
That children cry the lily bloom
All up and down the leafy way;
That half the town is mad with May,
With flame of flag and boom of bell:
For Carnival is King to-day;
So pen and page, awhile farewell.
