'All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.'

Neil just came emerged from the garage with these! Now having a Covid-compliant launch party, ie, new mug of tea. Dogs assuming role of jaded critics who’d rather be at home. https://t.co/EZRv9pur81
The Ickabog is published today, complete with STUNNING pictures created by young illustrators around the world! I’m donating my royalties to my charitable Trust, Volant, to help medical and frontline charities support vulnerable groups impacted by Covid-19. https://t.co/RKTUidveMS
We couldn't have done it without you! You're all AMAZING!
DELIGHTED to say that the wonderful @stephenfry has read the audiobook of #TheIckabog, which will be available tomorrow!

#TheIckabog will be available to buy on November 10. My royalties will be donated to medical and frontline charities supporting those worst affected by Covid-19. 2/2
Just received my first published copy of #TheIckabog! The winners’ illustrations bring the story alive even more beautifully than I’d imagined. Thank you to EVERYONE who sent in pictures. You reminded me just how much I love writing for young people. 1/2 https://t.co/hsDdZO3PUf
This is also an opportunity to express my gratitude once more to the thousands of people who’ve sent me personal emails and letters of support. I’m trying to respond to all of them, so please forgive me if I haven’t yet got to yours! 3/X
(though believe me, I’m EXTREMELY grateful on that level), but because the signatories are showing solidarity with all the women who’re currently speaking up for their own rights and facing threats of violence and even death in return. 2/3
My weekend was heavy (in the very best sense!) on family and light on reading the news, so I only realised this morning that this letter appeared in the Sunday Times yesterday. I'm profoundly grateful to all the signatories, not only on a personal level, 1/3 https://t.co/4j7B2RGhoV
If you are (or know) a witch who wants one of these, don't buy from cynical chancers. I got my T-shirt from @Wild_Womyn #supportwomenrunbusinesses
Sometimes a T-shirt just speaks to you...

RT @antidependancy2: I am a 6'2 former forward. If I announce I identify as a girl, stonewall says its OK for me to smash full tilt into a female fly half who weighs 4 or 5 stone less than me. When she has a life changing spinal injury because of it, thats fine, because no ones feelings got hurt.... https://t.co/L3u4zvU9EC

The answer to a frequently asked question on my timeline: which country's illustrations will be in which edition?
Once again, congratulations to all the children & young people whose illustrations will feature in the published books - you produced masterpieces! #TheIckabog https://t.co/Fip6HtP8Be
To all the lovely people who’ve wished me happy birthday, thank you so much and look at my surprise birthday cake! https://t.co/cgkohO7Hs0
The writers of this letter are just two of a growing number of whistleblowers. The bleak truth is that if and when the scandal does erupt, nobody currently cheering this movement on will be able to credibly claim ‘we couldn’t have known’. https://t.co/8ughoMKCun 4/4
Since speaking up about gender identity theory, I’ve received thousands of emails – more than I’ve ever had on a single subject. Many have come from professionals working in medicine, education and social work. All are concerned about the effects on vulnerable young people. 3/4
