"The Prime Minister has also made his position extremely clear and while many people might want Dominic Cummings to go, if the police do not view the issue as worth investigating further then it would undermine all those holding positions in the public sector if Mr Cummings was sacked due the media pressure surrounding this incident."
Maybe I'm missing the point but is that not a load of cobblers? I've been sacked from a job before for failures, yet it didn't require a police investigation... Likewise, many of those who have been sacked for a breach of conduct haven't needed one - in most cases, it is down to the employer*
I realise the DC is over now and there are bigger things to deal with but this just seems like a really poorly thought out defence from Derek 'yes man' Thomas MP.
*of course there are tribunals etc

Seen a few people doing this on Twitter and YouTube... quite an interesting challenge that takes a lot of mental gymnastics to fit everyone in

|ITV care homes story|
at 20:43 28 May 2020
Has this been discussed? Care homes are for the elderly or those with ongoing health conditions, so residents will be in the highest risk category. Whose idea was that to dispatch Covid patients who hadn't been tested into this environment? That has to be a massive factor in our tragically high care home death rate. Hancock has to go after this - Johnson should too but we know that won't happen yet.

What a load of nonsense. Nothing she said was inaccurate
Dominic Cummings broke the rules - FACT
He's made many people feel they can flout the rules - FACT, the police have said people have used Cummings as an excuse when being told off for breaking the rules
Public mood is anger at Cummings - FACT, literally all opinion polls have a large majority for him to resign, or at least apologise
As Mr O'Brien says, you cannot balance fact with fiction.

Can we store all the gems into one place? Here’s my first offering...
Can’t help thinking that Cummings could have beaten up one of the journalists and he’d still claim to be on the right side of history

|Apparently only 3 backbenchers are defending him to the hilt|

Incredible that in a WhatsApp group containing some of the most obnoxious people to walk into parliament, only 3 are willing to bat for DC. Not surprising that 2 of those are IDS and Sheryl "I'm glad we have foodbanks in Cornwall" Murray though.
How many of the rest are still willing to speak out is another matter.

Here's my contribution for what it's worth. Many of the MPs who've broken rank so far have done so off the back of constituent emails, so I'd encourage as many people to complain as possible.

One person who "predictably lambasted Dominic Cummings" used to be in the Communist Party!!! I assume they're also denouncing their support for Brexit as we speak because Clare Fox was a Brexit Party MEP and used to be in the Communist Party

I’ve done a few more bits for my blog, including one about the twitter scandal yesterday. I know I should’ve put it in another thread but we’re all allowed a bit of attention seeking sometimes

Not sure I've ever seen a lower blow from any elected representative. She's clearly using an out of context clip of Starmer talking about and condemning previous actions in the grooming gangs scandal and presenting it as if he's advocating them.
Edit: As the coward has now protected her tweets, a link to what she retweeted is below.
Imagine being so rattled that you're willing to twist a story about abused children to make a party political point.
Here's the full video:
