Things John Major did. (There was also the Cones Hotline, which you could call if you badly needed to talk to a cone.) https://twitter.com/Stniuk/status/1141000980621864960

Whereas Theresa May had to escort Trump around as her “leaving office” present. https://twitter.com/kentindell/status/1140993965304553472
Ah yes, this would explain why John Major gets low marks with the current Tory Party infestation. https://twitter.com/daviddlow/status/1140992212295135232
Tfw you realise that the Americans who designed Facebook's cryptocurrency live in a world where contactless payments basically aren't a thing

This is bizarre. I was no fan of Major at the time, but in retrospect he got historically important stuff done - such as beginning negotiations with the IRA, which led to the GFA. I mean, Hague?? Duncan-Smith, who they dumped so fast?? https://twitter.com/YouGov/status/1140885388912996353

Just interviewed @ValtteriBottas for Abloy (one of his sponsors). A talkative Finn? A talkative F1 driver?? But he is. Also knows where the camera is for selfies.

I think No.3 is a racing certainty within 10 years because the backstop will be implacable; Johnson would be willing to have an “Irish Sea” border and screw the DUP. https://twitter.com/APHClarkson/status/1140888065239597056
Crazy for Apple to have a display stand that costs one-fifth what the display does. TVs are different, obviously.

What the headline wants to say is all-male writing *rooms* which is a different thing entirely. A team (of two!) might write a TV series, but shows like Have I Got News have a “room” of people pitching in jokes for links etc. https://twitter.com/OliBarrett/status/1140848879803523072

I am surprised that none of the Tory rivals have suggested Boris Johnson is frit, given the way that word rings down the years from Thatcher (to Michael Foot - or maybe Denis Healey - when she was PM, at a PMQs). https://twitter.com/twlldun/status/1140586620032311296
