NEW: Boris Johnson has watered down the ministerial code - allowing ministers to break the rules without resigning - and blocked a bid to give his ethics advisor the power to investigate him… mirror.co.uk/news/politics/b…

Beyond the despicable disrespect #Partygate has revealed… the alchohol habits encouraged at number 10 explains the total lack of cohesive plans, vision or just plain clarity of this Government.

Boris Johnson has today rewritten his own foreword to the ministerial code, removing all reference to honesty, integrity, transparency and accountability. He is downgrading standards and debasing the principles of public life before our very eyes. 👁 mirror.co.uk/news/politics/b…

This is so powerful. Well done to the reporter who would not be browbeaten and kept on asking the right question. Why are mass school shootings an American problem?
"Why only in America?" US Senator Ted Cruz walks away from @Stone_SkyNews after being asked if "this is the moment to reform gun laws" trib.al/nmOJAT8 #TedCruz #America #Texasshooting #gunlaws

Or we could talk about school funding still being below what it was in 2010; or the crumbling school estate; or the 70% rise in childcare costs since 2009; or the housing crisis; 2 year waits for court cases... Which one would they like to discuss?

EXCL: @ITVNews has obtained pictures of Boris Johnson drinking at a No10 party during lockdown in November 2020. The photos cast fresh doubt on the PM's repeated claims he was unaware of rule-breaking in No10 during the pandemic. See all images here: itv.com/news/2022-05-23/excl…

NEW: No 10 tell me Sue Gray had photos of Lee Cain's leaving party and they believe they are very similar to the ones we've obtained. Sue Gray passed all her evidence to the Met, which again raises the question of why police didn't fine the PM given what the pics show.

So am I right? Katherine Birbalsingh thinks that pupils should read Shakespeare and pupils should read widely including the works of Black writers? Is that it?

John was a lovely man. A great trade unionist. He lived life to the full with cancer. He will rest in peace.
Today we say goodbye to our colleague John Andrews. John was a caring, thoughtful and generous man always concerned about the welfare of others. A stalwart trade unionist, proud Dad, loyal husband and a wonderful friend. He will be missed by many. Rest in power Brother
