iPhone : Be the change. As a long-standing member of the Law Reform Committee I can tell you that ideas 💡 make things happen. I’ve seen it. twitter.com/king_barrister…

Twitter Web App : Eye opening. Work available for £1 per hour for those in immigration detention. twitter.com/labour_blog/st…

iPhone : Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg will publish plans for how MPs will vote in parliament ahead of the return of MPs tomorrow.

The plan - being finalised this AM - is apparently for MPs to form a kilometer-long queue in order to vote (THREAD)

iPhone : This makes me very sad. Guide dogs are not trained in social distancing so people need to not be selfish and assist by getting out of their way. A few seconds out of your day. twitter.com/blinddad_uk/st…

iPhone : Very frustrating to see a politician talking as though SSP is some sort of protection against lost wages. £95 per week is well below the minimum wage rate. If healthy people are being asked to stay away from work we should surely come up with a proper way of compensating them. twitter.com/SkyNews/status…

Mocking them as scared for their own sake is a cheap shot that misses.

Twitter Web App : Thoughts. This is a sub-optimal example of case management? bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/…

Less about the point in the appeal and more about the correspondence between the parties and the ET.


iPhone : I rewrote the Kier Starmer ‘man of the people?’ story with the same information and assumption as the MoS but a different spin to show how editorial position shapes how we read the facts.

Twitter Web App : Daniel Barnett In a breach of contract claim advanced in the County Court, wouldn't the employer potentially be liable for all of the damages arising from the breach of contract? e.g. charges.
