The amount of racism on Twitter regarding the possible #leicesterlockdown is shocking. As someone born and bred in this city, it fucking disgusts me. This city is proud of its diverse culture and heritage and I am too.

I haven't commented publicly on the situation with Dominic Cummings as I have waited to hear the full details. I welcome the statement to clarify matters, but there remains aspects of the explanation which I have trouble with. As a result I have resigned as a government Minister. pic.twitter.com/6yXLyMzItJ
Dominic Cummings does not want people sharing this clip of him, so make sure you don't share it. "The public is basically correct – Tory MPs largely do not care about poor people." "They don't care about the NHS – and the public has cottoned on" pic.twitter.com/rDaiigQYWu
PM’s mess of a statement has caused more confusion than clarity, creating worrying uncertainty about the return to work & how safety will be assured, opening up divisions between the UK’s nations and displaying a complete lack of clarity about what activities are now allowable.

Many of our members are deeply concerned about the risks of a second-spike in COVID-19 cases. That's why we're clear that until case numbers are much lower, we should not consider reopening schools – good to see our concerns making front page news today https://t.co/x6QjnL5AAS
