The pandemic has exacerbated long-standing inequalities and the government must tackle this head on. It's an honour to be working alongside Doreen on this.

Cummings said he has evidence proving he was in London on 19 April and the PM said he has seen it. The public have a right to know whether the PM’s chief advisor made a second lockdown-breaching trip to Durham, and Cummings should produce this evidence.

Dominic Cummings’ reckless disdain for the laws he helped create undermined the public’s trust in vital public health measures during a deadly pandemic. And yet Boris Johnson is so beholden to him he’s still in post. This is no way to run a country.

Victims of crime are being let down by delays to justice. Court closures, cuts and reductions in sitting days created the backlog, but coronavirus has made it worse. The government needs to stop dithering and roll out Nightingale courts.

The Government must stop dithering over its roll out of Nightingale Courts. We urgently need more capacity to deal with the immediate crisis. The Conservatives must also promise to make no new plans to close more courts while in government.

The Tories’ disastrous sell-off of courts has created a situation where dangerous offenders could now be released onto the streets. This could threaten public safety and is another insult to victims who are being denied justice by endless delays.

One month for the government to fix the test-and-trace system. Now is the time to make hard choices to prevent a catastrophic second wave.

There but for the grace of God. I pray I never have to hold one of my sons so tight, calming him down whilst seeking a makeshift shelter. Terribly moving.

Thank you for taking this down now but given the item has been on sale since March what systems do you have in place for reviewing descriptions and not allowing offensive terms to be posted in the first place? This is not the first time.

Just buying brown brogues tonight leads to this racist micro aggression. Is it 2020 or 1720? Please ⁦⁦⁩ take it down.

Solidarity - this abuse is absolutely unacceptable. It’s right that the police look into this and clear that social media companies need to do far more, although, knowing David as I do, anyone who thinks they can silence him with vile racism couldn’t be more wrong.

Cross-party consensus can feel rare in British politics. But we are united on this. You need to get so much faster at stamping out racist threats and abuse.

13+ hours later, the police are investigating and Mikolaos Nichaloliakos’ tweet calling me a ‘monkey boy’ and making threats about ‘hanging’ are still live. tell me racist abuse is not welcome on your platform. You need to get so much faster at removing hate.
