Delighted to share our paper on the diagnosis of respiratory tract infection using @nanopore metagenomics published today in @NatureBiotech. Big congrats to all the team! The review process was helpful and has led to improvements compared to the preprint

Tim, do you genuinely want people to believe you are this stupid, or do you just see your own reputation as necessary collateral in the culture war?

Quoted @IronsideSam

Absolutely! The Union is no longer fit for purpose! It serves ONE country - England! That is not the fault of the English, it is the Tory or Labour propaganda machine! WHY don't we move WM up to Edinburgh for the next 300+yrs, reduce English MP's to 59. A SCOTTISH PM! Any takers?

Yeah, why don't we reduce English MPs to 59 and see how they like it! What's that? It's about population size? Scottish voters currently have more representation in Parliament per head than English ones? But.. but... FREEDOM!

This is fine. I’d pay for a cruse down the Mississippi on this.

Data earlier this year showed that 99.4% of the population consumed a product of animal origin over a 4 week period. So while many self-report as vegan, the stats tell a different story.

This is scary - these are the people who will be choosing our next PM: - 40% want limits on the number of people of Muslims entering UK - 45% believe far right conspiracy theory that "there are areas in Britain in which non-Muslims are not able to enter"
