Really like the “stop the tape” ✋explainer style approach @bbcradioulster are using to deconstruct Liz Truss’ speech on the Protocol today. Very effective.

We're hearing that some people are experiencing delays in getting an Irish passport, but is it the same for those applying for British passports too? If you have experienced delays in either applying for or renewing a British passport, BBC Newsline would like to hear from you.

LGBTQ people should be visible, accepted and unapologetically authentic in all corners of our society, but unfortunately there is still work to do to make that reality. Massive respect for Jake for refusing to hide who he is. His courage will help others 🙌🏳️‍🌈

Naomi’s anger is palpable and I feel every syllable of what she said.
"While this is a sad day for Northern Ireland, it is a shameful day for the DUP" Alliance Party leader Naomi Long criticises members of the DUP for taking their salaries but refusing "to take their seats and do the work to earn it" bbc.in/3FMwibs

Not sure if a windswept selfie with a tractor is compulsory when you visit the @balmoralshow, but here’s mine anyway. Enjoyable morning spent chatting to folks at the @pcsp_LCC stand. Plenty of useful info on rural crime prevention and some great freebies for the kids 😊

Just watch today as the DUP MLA’s all sign in to make sure they get paid. Once they’re secure, watch what they think of all of you,me & everyone else who wants delivery on our health service, cost of living, education, jobs. #noshame #embarrassing
BREAKING: Sir Jeffrey Donaldson says his party won't nominate an Assembly speaker today as newly elected MLAs gather at Stormont. He tells the Newsletter that the Irish Sea border must go. The DUP's move means the Assembly now won't be able to function.

People are dying waiting for ambulances and the DUP’s top priority is doubling down on the political crisis they created. It’s honestly shameful and shameless.

Just in case this needs repeating ⬇️
Repeat after me, Alliance are neither a Unionist or Nationalist party and will designate as such. The SDLP are a nationalist party and will designate as such.

To say that @CarryduffColts is an asset to our community is an understatement. Really grateful for everything they do and will continue to support however I can to deliver the facilities the club and the community needs.
This club has already become a hub in the community yet there is so much that could be done to provide Carryduff with the facilities it deserves." belfastlive.co.uk/news/belfa…
