Hootsuite Inc. : By rushing to reopen schools, the Government risks another surge in the #Covid19 infection rate.

We can afford to wait until the infection rate comes down.

We can’t afford another serious spike in infections.

iPhone : Two week’s sick pay:

🇬🇧UK £191.70

What you’d get if you lived in:

🇦🇹Austria £651
🇩🇪Germany £651
🇧🇪Belgium £605
🇸🇪Sweden £417
🇪🇸Spain £273

Statutory sick pay in the UK isn’t enough to live on while self-isolating.

For NHS Test and Trace to work, we need decent #SickPayForAll

Android : “I can’t breathe” George Floyd’s last words. These were also the words last spoken by Eric Garner, another unarmed African-American murdered by the police. Here in the UK we too have no immunity from this type of state sanctioned racism #BlackLivesMatter tribunemag.co.uk/2020/05/its-ti…

iPhone : The Government's decision to impose austerity on Londoners is wrong.

With families already hit hard by #coronavirus, many will be pushed into poverty if they have to pay for their children's travel as well.

iPhone : British society post #coronavirus is a potential tinder box. All the issues that led to the disturbances in the U.S. about the death of George Floyd exist here #blacklivesmatter

Android : What a week for our country: a govt with no moral compass. Workers face the sack as furlough winds down; Cummings drives coach and horses through lockdown; where is promised world beating track and trace?; scientific community now dubious; no. of deaths far too high.

iPhone : Solidarity with the family, friends and community of George Floyd and those taking a stand against police violence across the world.

We must eradicate the systemic injustice of racism in law enforcement, wherever it exists #BlackLivesMatter

Android : Tragic that case of much loved wife and mother #BellyMujinga, who died after spat on on duty at Victoria station being closed

With over half London MPs I’m demanding that PM extends same lump sum for frontline NHS who die fighting #Covid_19 to transport workers in same circs twitter.com/bbclondonnews/…

Twitter Web App : If the Tories want young Londoners to go to school on Monday they should reverse their disgraceful plan to scrap free travel for under 18s. Punishing working class families across London in the middle of a pandemic like this is simply wrong.

Hootsuite Inc. : Today marks 50 years since the passing of Labour's #EqualPayAct

On current trend, it's going to be another 50 before we close the #GenderPayGap

Twitter Web App : Pleased to add my name to this letter calling for the Chancellor to extend #coronavirus business support measures to help events caterers.

The cost of this would be nothing compared to the cost of bankrupt businesses, unemployed workers and lost tax revenue.

Twitter Web App : "The U-turn on the health surcharge is a great result... Unfortunately, it comes against the gloomy backdrop of the government pushing ahead with more anti-migrant policy."

iPhone : Top ten European countries with the highest #GenderPayGap

1 🇪🇪 22.7%
2 🇩🇪 20.9%
3 🇨🇿 20.1%
4 🇬🇧 19.9%
5 🇦🇹 19.6%
6 🇸🇰 19.4%
7 🇨🇭 17%
8 🇫🇮 16.3%
9 🇵🇹 16.2%
10 🇫🇷 15.5%

Labour’s #EqualPayAct was a big achievement but we’re still a long way off genuine gender parity #EqualPay50
