Twitter for iPad : It’s far worse than the hypocrisy of one who’s campaigns have riled against elites treating the masses as fools. It’s the danger for us all of Govt treating its own rules for beating the pandemic so lightly. Why must we comply in the national interest now? theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

Android : A good example of why “anti-Zionism is not antisemitism” is a platitudinous truism with almost no explanatory value. Slogans like the one on this banner have nothing to do with support for Palestinian rights and everything to do with the conspiracy theory that Jews run the world. twitter.com/gabriel_pogrun…

Android : There is no excuse for the anti-Semitic language in statements from Irans leadership. Israel has an undeniable right to peace and security, and denying it hurts all the people of the region.

iPhone : How are workers being affected by the coronavirus pandemic? How should employers respond?

And what are unions and the Labour Party doing to improve support?

Join us on Wednesday for a Facebook LIVE with Barbara Plant and Dr Rosena Allin-Khan to discuss 👇

iPhone : This was a test of the Prime Minister and he has failed it.

It is an insult to sacrifices made by the British people that Boris Johnson has chosen to take no action against Dominic Cummings.

iPhone : Praying for the Prime Minister’s swift recovery tonight. @GSTTNHS has some of the finest medical staff in the world, and he couldnt be in safer hands. bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-52…

Twitter Web App : Boris Johnson wrote to every household in country at taxpayer’s expense instructing:

“We are giving one simple instruction - you must stay at home. You should not meet friends or relatives who do not live in your home.”

So one rule for his elite friends, another for rest of us.

Twitter Web App : Very happy to reconfirm, as I have done before and will do again at meetings already scheduled and confirmed, that EalingCouncil will be exploring a standing Design Review Panel, as well as Community Review Panels as part of the review of our Local Plan. Thanks for the emails👍

Twitter for iPad : It is widely believed that Tony Blair avoided being seen to back candidates he really wanted to be General Secretary because that would simply focus opposition on the wrong candidate. Beware unattributed briefings on the eve of shortlisting!

thetimes.co.uk/article/blair-…

Twitter Web App : Those who hate Cummings will regard that as a car crash. Those who admire him will see his explanations as entirely reasonable. Each side will regard the other as mad, possibly contemptible. This is the reality of echo chambers in a digital world #cummingsPRESSconference

Android : ▶️ THE JEWISH TELEGRAPH IS NOW AVAILABLE AS AN E-EDITION ◀️

You can read all four editions of the Jewish Telegraph, before it hits the shops, from 4am UK time on the day it is published.

TweetDeck : .Keir Starmer must stop overseeing abuses of human rights The confidentiality insisted on by @uklabour complaints team are an abuse of human rights and harassment and abuse of process. Giving out Samaritans phone# is admission of abuse. by Mike Cushman jewishvoiceforlabour.org.uk/article/starme…

iPhone : Assume nobody has forgotten Labour’s new general secretary is being appointed tomorrow! NEC sources say it’s left pick Byron Taylor (former TULO officer) vs leadership fave David Evans (former assistant gen sec). Details in LabourList morning email... my.labourlist.org/page/s/sign-up…

Android : Trip to Barnard Castle makes no sense and is unlawful. Earlier dilemma faced by Cummings family faced by other families - parent/s get ill, might be childcare problems. Cummings not exceptional. Had to do their best, with help from volunteers and state. Not a reasonable excuse.

iPhone : #DominicCummings, after trashing his own Govt guidance and taking for mugs those who made huge sacrifices, is doubling down on his story and extending this farce, because he knows the PM is spineless and can’t sack him.

One rule for the Govt elite and another for the rest of us!

Twitter Web App : The UK that has now the highest rate of confirmed deaths from #COVID19 worldwide.

[Link to the source: ourworldindata.org/coronavirus-da…]

iPhone : NEW: Prof Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance left No 10 at approx 1820.

Earlier we were told they would be appearing with the PM at the daily press conference.

Why did they turn up for the presser and then leave?

Have asked No 10 for comment.

Twitter Web App : Cannot get my head around writing quite so much about superforecasting and prediction and risk and then doing this very basic forecasting failure of scrubbing out your mistakes rather than learning from them. twitter.com/faisalislam/st…

Twitter Web App : Car showrooms opening on the 1st June. Good news for anyone who needs an eye test

Android : COVID19 has exposed the fragility in our society and deep flaws in our economy – like the number of people in low-paid, insecure work.

This crisis gives us the opportunity to create a society that is fairer, more equal and more secure for all. Grazia UK

Android : Dominic Cummings wife Mary Wakefield was born on April 12th 1975. The same day as he drove to Barnard Castle to double check his eyesight. Which is a weird coincidence you might say. shorturl.at/fryE0

iPhone : In welsh we don’t say ‘you’re my best friend’, we say ‘mae hi’n un rheol i’r llywodraeth a ffrindiau Boris Johnson, ac un rheol arall i rheini sydd heb a ystad yng Nghogledd Lloegr’, and I think it’s beautiful 🥰🥺

iPhone : In these dark times, it gives me vicarious pleasure that my friend Beth Rigby causes such anguish for the minuscule cult of spiked. Its forerunner mag libelled honest journalists for exposing the truth about Serb war crimes, and is no more. twitter.com/tom_slater_/st…

TweetDeck : Unilateral annexation of West Bank territory is a moral crisis, a security nightmare and a breaking point in our communitys relationship with Israel.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews must speak up for whats right and oppose annexation before its too late.

iPhone : Protests in Idlib today along the M4 highway under the title The flood of Return demanding that the regime withdraw from areas captured during the last offensive so hundreds of thousands could return home.

Twitter Web App : We remember the four victims of this attack; Dominique Sabrier Z”L, Alexandre Strens Z”L, Miriam Riva Z”L and Emmanuel Riva Z”L. May their memories be a blessing

iPhone : Christina Walker Hi Christina - I’m sorry to hear that and I hope you and your children are ok.
I’m just saying I don’t think people should be shouted at in the street or have protests at their house.

iPhone : Lots of hope and talk by some that the story will pass. V few stories make it through the noise. The totalising nature of pandemic means that it feels like this one has. As a result, it could have a unique potency and potential to wound. The polls will be the next crucial thing.

Android : Check out the comments 🤦‍♂️
German reunification & European peace & prosperity are among the greatest legacies of the century of American hegemony now coming to a close. The investment of folks like Truman, Kennan, Kennedy, Reagan, Holbrooke, Clinton, Obama: torched. twitter.com/drandreasnick/…

Twitter for iPad : It used to be thought that eating carrots help eyesight because there are no rabbits with glasses, but from today anyone who has eyesight issues is advised to go to Barnard Castle for natural healing

iPhone : Cummings says he isnt speaking on behalf of the Prime Minister or Government. Why on earth is he giving a statement from Number 10 Downing Streets Rose Garden then? Further evidence of trying to take us all for fools.

iPhone : The PM should be less concerned about saving Dominic Cummings and more concerned about saving our precious council services instead.

His Govt’s cuts and the pandemic have had a devastating impact on Luton Council’s budget. Pls sign & share change.org/p/boris-johnso… #Luton

iPhone : India Knight Judy Astley Didn’t think tonight’s very good but perhaps that’s because David and Josh deeply boring characters. But tomorrow night Tracy is back - can’t wait! And the Blessed Harrison. So it might improve. #thearchers

Android : Completed thread on the introduction of Section 28 - 32 years ago today.

In the years between 1983 and 1987, the number of people in Britain believing that homosexuality is ‘always wrong’ rose from 50% to 64%

Twitter Web App : As Boris Johnson says: “People will have to make their minds up.”

It comes down to this: there will be many people who stuck to lockdown rules, didnt see family, go out for drives, risk taking infection into work - irrespective of circumstances.

How do they feel right now? twitter.com/danbloom1/stat…

iPhone : The one rule of scandals involving prime ministers’ family members and senior advisers is that they are always useful to divert attention from something the prime minister has done or is doing

TweetDeck : Who drives to test their eyesight for an even longer drive?!

Absolute madness.

If you fear your eyesight is impacted - you do not drive. End of.

Twitter Web App : Piers Morgan Hi Piers,

Please talk to our local GP Dr Hina Ansari, former Chair of the Croydon NHS Commissioning Group. NHS bosses have left her hung out to dry. A local GP died due to COVID19 last night - the first GP in the country (I think). Please talk to Dr Hina Ansari 07540 295 786

iPhone : Am told they’ll be a meeting opposition figures tomorrow, from SNP, Labour, Lib Dems, DUP, Plaid Cymru, SDLP, Greens, and Alliance Party “to discuss the next steps in holding Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings to account.”

Rabbi Rene Pfertzel says in his beautiful sermon for #LJBiennial2020 Shacharit

Android : I condemn in the strongest possible terms the call by the Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei.ir to fight #Israel. This is a threat to international peace and security. The security of Israel is of paramount importance and the EU will stand at its side.

Android : Donate juicy, healthy and colourful fruit arrangements bursting with vitamins to our devoted NHS staff in hospitals, care homes and vulnerable people all over the country. bit.ly/3egasOp

Twitter for iPad : Not a kid . . . but as one I traveled down South with my dad on a bus tour. . . yes we were poor. At a bus stop I came across a water fountain with a sign whites only not long thereafter a lawn sign that said no niggers, Jews or dogs. Till the day I die I will not forget.
