Downing Street press office needs to sort out a picture sooner rather than later of Boris Johnson in his hospital bed reading official papers to reassure those sceptical that it is ‘business as usual.’

@DemonZindod  It’s disturbing. America is generally speaking more practical about these things: regular health bulletins, and, when the president is incapacitated, a temporary transition of power.

A random mother taking her children to a park and keeping a safe distance from others after being cooped up in a flat for a week does not deserve our abuse. Let us reserve that for people who profited from events like these and enabled them.

Just when we need some light in this darkness the most. Please keep buying responsible newspapers.

RIP a very classy actress, fun to be around and very politically astute. A @LibDems  supporter, I believe.

@4lbion  When I di @LibDemse , I should like - if anyone is interested - that people know what my political beliefs were. I met Honor and it was politics she wanted to talk about, not acting.

So Raab chaired today’s COBRA meeting without any reference or deferral to the PM at all. He’s therefore in charge.

@jacksoo6now  We remain a democracy and we did not vote for Raab to be prime minister. I accept this is an exceptional situation, but we have at least a right to be informed who is running the country.

I ask @BBCr4today : is it normal to interview the loser in a by election? Why is Farage on AGAIN? Please retweet if you’d like an answer.

The Sunday Telegraph reports there was a pandemic trial run, it was found the NHS would be overwhelmed, no extra funding was forthcoming to put this right and it was hushed up. The NHS didn’t fail the test: those in government did.

The right, proper and honourable thing for @BorisJohnson  to do is to resign now. He’s disgraced his office. Do please retweet if you agree.

Every single one of us in journalism was aware Johnson wasn’t a fit and proper person to be prime minister. He worked in our trade and we’d got to know him only too well. And yet too many of us wrote this sort of crap because it was what our non-dom owners wanted.

Please retweet if you think @DailyMailUK  should sack Michael Gove’s wife for this incendiary and irresponsible tweet

Do please retweet if the BBC’s handling of Brexit has made you bitterly resentful of the licence fee and determined to see it scrapped.

I don’t regard @BorisJohnson  as prime minister. He doesn’t represent me or the nation’s interests in any way at all. Retweet if you agree.

Retweet please if you think it’s time John Humphrys made way now for a younger and more objective journalist on @BBCr4today .
