Good morning.

Sometimes you get the right people on your side but at other times...

Shaun Bailey Retweeted

@Stefan_Boscia
Former Met Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson has come out today to back Shaun Bailey's mayoral campaign. He says Sadiq Khan has not been a mayor "who owns the problem [of violent crime], shows leadership and supports our police".

Ah yes, Sir Paul Stephenson who had to resign as Met Chief during the phone hacking scandal due to his links with Neil Wallis...and the timing after yesterday...

:D

This means, as far as No 10 are concerned, Hoyle will not get his clarification. This is an unexpected twist. At PMQs, Johnson said Starmer "voted against the document in question", after Starmer had just waved a copy of the NHS budget, and made no mention of Queen's speech.

Matt Hancock claims there are no plans to shut schools due to #COVID19

This is a contradictory from previous statements. If strict isolation rules are applied, schools would be forced into difficult decisions, impossible staff planning & chaotic closures.

We really should have learned to mistrust the phrase "no plans to" by now.

Completely underestimated the scale of the issues thrown up by Brexit - who, us? never!

And this is not good news for the anti-Woke brigade...

We have found no grounds for regulatory action against the National Trust. However, we welcome the charity’s ongoing commitment to learning lessons and taking into account diverse opinions within its membership and society.

So, Labour are running on increasing nurses wages in the local elections, but have rowed back on the 5% increase they had in the last election(?). They really are spectacularly useless.

But being in the last manifesto makes it automatically bad, apparently.

Fortunately for Labour (if not actual health workers) it seems Sunak is sticking to his guns - claiming the planned figure is "proportionate, fair and reasonable".

So that's us all told :D

All going swimmingly.

Of all of the Labour NECs I have attended today’s was the most depressing.

The motion to recall conference was refused, no vote taken.

When @LauraPidcock
questioned how this could be explained to members Margaret Beckett called her a “silly cow”.

Truly shocking.

Beckett is no angel himself, however. I certainly hope that Steve Turner succeeds McCluskey rather than him.

Tbf, it's hard to see what anyone can run on in the locals, given the current state of LA finances.

We'll issue a section 114 notice 6 months later than the other lot?

Interesting choice of headline in the G

UK forced to delay checks on imports from EU by six months

Makes it sound like an Act of God, rather than carelessness.

I'm shocked, shocked that the tedious right wing buffoon who runs Save Our Statues took a dim view of the outcome of the CC investigation!

Who regulates the regulators?

Earlier we had Bristol Police praised for their bystander "policing" & now we have

Fascinating in some ways to see someone so convinced in his own knowledge that it never occurs to him that maybe he might be wrong...people like this won't ever be satisfied.

The use of "long march" (a phrase based on a widespread Gramsci misquote) tells its own story really.
