iPhone : At last. Have been genuinely confused about #Cricket (not the rules, I broadly get those). Thought it would be one of the sports most suited to social distancing.…

iPhone : On pubs opening from 6am....this is not allowing pubs to open earlier but stopping them opening at midnight tonight (which is when the rest of the legislation takes effect) to avoid overnight parties. Pubs can only open under the terms of their licence.

iPhone : At any given time between 14 and 27 June 2020, we estimate that an average 0.04% of people not in care homes, hospitals or other institutional settings in England would test positive for #COVID19.

This equates to an average of 25,000 people in England

iPhone : China threatens 'strangulation' of #hongkong's freedoms says Dominic Raab and govt will give holders of British overseas passports 5 years limited leave to remain in UK and can then apply for settled status and ultimately citizenship -'with no quotas'

iPhone : PM says new national security law in Hong Kong is a “clear and serious violation” of the Joint Declaration by China. #china #HongKong

iPhone : Build better and build greener, but also build faster, says the prime minister on changes to the planning system. The associated press release says the govt will make it easier for disused shops to be turned into homes. That’s where lots of the promised new homes will come from.

iPhone : Some very familiar promises in today’s speech - build more homes, sort social care, improve vocational training, increase productivity. Ambition is clear, can Boris Johnson deliver? #NewDeal?
