All the week's best political tweets in one handy location.

The Leveson inquiry

@mrstevenallen - Enjoying the hacking enquiry with Hugh Grant, Steve Coogan, Sienna Miller, Sheryl Gascoigne & Max Mosley. When do we get to vote one off?

@EvanHD - Schools should sit their children down to watch the #Leveson testimony. It's a) gripping and b) would help them understand what they read.

@psmith - Can someone explain to Leveson enquiry that refute means disprove not deny.

@richardpbacon - Elle Macpherson effectively had her non-alcoholic business advisor sectioned in a grade A psychiatric facility for alcoholics. #YouWhat?

@politics_co_uk – Hugh Grant defines press attitude to celebrity coverage: "You sold me your milk, you slut."

@benarchibald - Max Moseley describes Paul Dacre's comment on 'unimaginable depravity' as a poor reflection on Dacre's imagination. Brilliant.

Public sector pension strikes

@ianvisits - If strikes costs jobs, then so does Christmas Day. Oliver Cromwell was right to ban it!

@politibat - Cameron calling teacher strikes illegitimate because of only 25% turnout. He became PM with 23.5% of the public vote. Hmm.

@ns_mehdihasan - "Most" public sector workers "did not vote for" strikes, says PM. But "most" people in this country didn't vote for him to be PM

@LouiseMensch - A nurse retiring on £34k moves *up* from £17k pension to £22k pension - and still the strikes. That's irresponsible.

@DocHackenbush - Remember kids, Royal Wedding = Patriotic Day Off Work/School. Strike Action = END OF ALL LIFE AS WE KNOW IT. #nov30

Question Time

@alexmassie - CEO of Sainsbury's earns in a year what Carlos Tevez is paid in two months. Outrageous! #bbcqt

@fleetstreetfox - NOTW did not close because readers abandoned it but because it's advertisers did. It's final edition had a massive sale. Sorry. #bbcqt

@jw_smith - I hope someone in the audience shouts "citation needed" whenever Jimmy Wales says something. #bbcqt

@DIMBLEBOT - DIMBLEFACT: "WALES" DOES NOT KNOW OF A USEFUL AND RAPID WAY TO LOOK UP INFORMATION ON A TOPICAL SUBJECT #BBCQT
