CCRC refers more Shrewsbury pickets to the Court of Appeal https://www.shrewsbury24campaign.org.uk/2020/05/ccrc-refers-more-shrewsbury-pickets-to-the-court-of-appeal/
The idea that we can retrospectively change the law to suit the Prime Minister’s mate is a nonsensical embarrassment - also from BBC News earlier
Made up for Ricky and the @Shrewsbury24C but this has been a Herculean task to get here, so many have died over the years, it’s taken decades of struggle to clear the injustice that happened all those years ago. I wish you all good luck at the appeal. https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2020/may/26/ricky-tomlinsons-criminal-convictions-to-be-re-examined
The most uncomfortable I’ve seen an Englishman in a press conference since a 7-0 defeat in Barcelona
Weakest reply so far from Mr Cummings: I was worried my eyesight had been hampered by Covid and not good enough to drive back to London. So I put the wife and kid in the car for a 30-mile test drive to Barnard Castle.
I'm going to drive to the Lakes to test eyesight coz I can't believe what I have just witnessed. Johnson is a bumbling mess and his unwillingness to take any responsibility for Cummings behaviour shows how weak he his. Grow a pair and sack him!
Our postal and telecom members have delivered to and kept the internet running for every house in the UK so people could stay in and stay connected #CumGate is a kick in the teeth to every key worker in the country. The Tories mask has slipped and let’s never forget that.
As one of those involved in SPI-B, the Government advisory group on behavioural science, I can say that in a few short minutes tonight, Boris Johnson has trashed all the advice we have given on how to build trust and secure adherence to the measures necessary to control COVID-19.
RT if you agree. Hi @JamesDalyMP will you condemn the behaviour of Cummings for ignoring the govt advice to stay at home. Why is it one rule for him and another for the rest of us? It’s an insult to everyone who has obeyed the rules. What will you say about it? Don’t hide away.
Well says it all really does it!!!!
29.9k followers hey 🧐 give this a RT and let’s hit 30,000 followers for all our members this bank holiday weekend 🥳

Imagine being the Mirror & Guardian/Observer; breaking last night’s Cummings story (HUGE) then sitting on the second story about him breaking lockdown x2 for an entire day & not releasing it until every single senior Tory has made an absolute tit of themselves defending him. WOW!
Unfortunately we’ve lost quite a few followers today because we condemned Dominic Cumming’s actions. But for us, the health of our colleagues and the population they serve is more important than anything else. So please RT and follow if you remain right behind us. Thank you x
My whole family went into isolation for 2 weeks when I had symptoms including my sons who both have respiratory health concerns. I didn’t send them to my parents despite being petrified I’d pass it on to them. He was wrong to travel & you are wrong to undermine your own advice.
I love my Dad who lives hundreds of miles away in the North East. I, my wife and his Grandson have stuck to the rules of stay at home, save lives, protect the #NHS If government Ministers were left speechless when #SAGE advisor Neil Ferguson broke the rules why not Dom. #Resign
#TheCWU members at Wigan DO have been through a very stressful and worrying time - so how fantastic was it too see them turn out in massive numbers to show their appreciation for NHS staff at their local hospital. 👏👏👏👏 #keyworkers #CWUandProud @safkhan00 @gillyismyhero
We need to talk about making workplaces safe. 🟠 4 in 5 think returning will put family at risk 🟠 Almost 95% are worried about catching coronavirus 🟠 Over 60% uncomfortable about being pressured back 🟠 Just 18% think their workplace will be safe

Give Cummings a break. Lockdown rules are just for the little people.
The coronavirus crisis in care homes is a national scandal - and senior health officials have asked firefighters to help halt the spread of infection The government may have let down care home staff and residents, but firefighters won't #coronavirusuk https://www.fbu.org.uk/news/2020/05/22/covid-19-firefighters-called-help-stem-spread-infection-care-homes
The BBC’s political editor is now doing rebuttal on behalf of the government’s chief spin doctor. Welcome to our completely healthy normal functioning democracy!

No 10 prepares to launch new ‘track and trace’ app, in latest effort to locate Boris Johnson.

I hope you can help me get this message across to the British public.
I have called on the government to provide certainty around police funding for Lancashire. The people of Lancashire will expect that their police service is not short-changed & that money spent responding to coronavirus is replaced in full by gov’t. https://www.lep.co.uk/news/politics/police-and-crime-commissioner-clive-grunshaw-calls-certainty-over-police-funding-cost-coronavirus-nears-ps1m-2859806
