Do you have a Conservative MP? Did you write to them about partygate - and did they promise to get back to you after Sue Gray's report? I would love to see any replies that have been sent to constituents *AFTER* the report. My email is in my bio.

Boris Johnson says we should all now "move on". I disagree entirely. Who's with me?

Same, school staff room was off limits, had to stay within class bubble, no socialising with colleagues, staff meetings on zoom and everyone stuck to the rules

Personally I don’t accept that « people in Downing Street «  worked exceptionally hard compared to the millions of essential workers and others who worked throughout the pandemic.

Word of the day is 'misken' (15th century): to refuse to recognise something by pretending it's not happening.

This stuff is doing my head in now. How can it be right to say goodbye to colleagues but not dying relatives?
The PM says some events identified in Sue Gray's report were held for the purpose of "saying goodbye to valued colleagues". He adds that "some people will think it was wrong even to do that" but "I respectfully disagree." Live: trib.al/DkRY0kS 📺 Sky 501 and YouTube

I am full of admiration for @AngelaRayner . Punch, humour , humanity. She nails it here:
Women in politics face sexism and misogyny every day - and I’m no different. This morning’s is the latest dose of gutter journalism courtesy of @MoS_Politics 🧵👇🏻1/9

I stand accused of a “ploy” to “distract” the helpless PM - by being a woman, having legs and wearing clothes. I am conspiring to “put him off his stride”. The rest I won’t repeat - but you get the picture. 2/9

I love how we need a committee to decide if Boris Johnson misled Parliament when he was filmed doing it and we all watched it live.

They just can’t get it into their thick heads that it’s not about them and their parties, it’s about the huge, tragic sacrifices that so many made while they were doing it.
