"What does he say to the thousands of doctors, nurses, care workers, the emergency services, cleaners, security staff and indeed civil servants?" @StephenFarryMP asks the PM how he can try to rationalise the Downing Street parties whilst so many suffered.

Sue Gray Report details a culture of entitlement in No 10. PM excuses today are disingenuous & not credible. Other staff were working long hours during Covid without flouting the rules & families across country were making sacrifices. PM has broken ministerial code & must resign

I don’t care how many grovelling apologies he makes, how much spin they try, what financial packages are suddenly brought forward - I will never ever forget the stories of ordinary people & their heartache, ones like this. @BorisJohnson is a disgrace. bbc.com/news/uk-england-lond…

My privilege to be present tonight at the ceremony at which @ANBorough granted the honour of Freedom of the Borough to NI Hospice. A worthy and well deserved honour, very fitting that this coincides with the 21st anniversary of the Children's Hospice at Horizon House in our area.

It will need to be robust enough to ensure that agreement on appointments of Commissioners, schemes, etc. cannot be held up by FM/dFM … anyone hold out much hope of that?!

This is an appalling Bill on Legacy which is being rammed through Parliament over the heads of the people of NI, especially victims. It has no legitimacy. It breaches Art 2 of ECHR and is unworkable.
This Legacy Bill is deeply flawed and unworkable. It is at odds with justice and reconciliation. In snuffing out the prospect for genuine investigations, the Government risks retraumatisimg victims.

Work is not supposed to be fun! Anyone who knows me, knows how much I loved working with #CTAUK1. Lovely to put the transport world to rights with Noeleen Lynch today. #CommunityTransport #InclusiveTransport #RuralTransport

Thankfully no one was injured. This community has suffered huge loss during our troubled history. I’ve no idea why anyone would leave a device like that at a roadside where it could cause devastation & destruction. Huge thanks @PSNINMDown & colleagues for making this device safe.
The device has been declared viable and has been taken away for further examination. armaghi.com/news/south-armag…

The Government briefed NI parties and victims' groups on the Legacy Bill last week - only after publication. This Bill is unlawful, unworkable, and intentionally goes against the will of the people of Northern Ireland.

Damning stuff. Strongly suggests that Boris Johnson has lied, and specifically has misled Parliament. This is a resigning matter. Also major questions for Met regarding quality of their investigation.
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…

"There's nothing there really that's proactive to help the family. It's all for the parents to do," says @Kelmba on why we need the Education Authority to take a more active role in helping kids find school places.

Another Monday, another day of the Assembly being down. But that doesn't stop our Alliance MLAs getting on with working for you. We want delivery, the DUP want deadlock. #StopTheirSalaries
