About to go on @bbc5live  to discuss Eid and lockdown and our message. Which feels even more important after Cumming’s actions. #lockdown  #EidMubarak 

There has been a devastating plane crash in Pakistan and some are posting photos of children, lists of the dead, crash debris and audio of the pilot’s last words. Including some British media. If you were a relative how would you feel? It’s only been a few hours...

Meanwhile in Holland...Dutch official advice to single people: find a sex buddy for lockdown....

If Cummings doesn’t resign, it means on reflection that the government have felt the risk of more people dying as a result of them copying his actions is worth taking, over the risk of he losing his job. That’s it.

What is very sad is that this political malaise of monumental lies and law breaking is bringing down some of the most promising new politicians. Rarely do some come along that at first appear to unite many. @RishiSunak  today you’ve blown it.

Did @MaajidNawaz  realise one of his last callers was former international cricketer @MontyPanesar  ? @lbc 

Cummings & Boris Johnson are putting all of our lives at risk, allowing more people to spread this killer virus. Doesn’t that make them responsible? “If Cummings can I can!” is what we will all hear now.

I have just watched a clip of a white man @bbcquestiontime  last night saying the racism accusations were “all getting a bit boring now”. If I went on TV and said that about homophobic, anti-semitic or sexual harassment allegations I’d never work again. That’s privilege for you.

My friends Dad is dying alone in a Spanish hospital. She is allowed nowhere near. She’s waiting for the inevitable call. Even if you think you’re ok you may spread it to your elders or someone else. PLEASE THINK AND STOP GOING TO PUBS, GYMS, CLUBS. PLEASE #COVID19 

I’ve been working in media for 26 years. Never been interviewed by @thesundaytimes  . Few series of a BBC1 sitcom, documentaries, etc. This guy acts but finds fame by saying something racist & regressive to people like me and he gets on the front cover. Camilla really? Privilege.

My deepest condolences to the family of 13 yr old Ismail Mohamed Abdulwahab from Brixton. It’s just unthinkable to imagine your son dying alone like he did. No u/l conditions. The greatest tribute we can pay is allowing him to be our heroic saviour by protecting others. #COVID19 

To some of those ‘patriots’ flag waving today, you know who you are. If you don’t remember the millions of Indian & African soldiers who fought for Britain against the fascists in WW2 then you haven’t defeated the facism in your mind. #VEDay 

It’s been tough for Carrie yes, but I find it hard to see how her text messages to Boris Johnson is a bigger news story than the life of just one of the 987 fellow Britons and loved ones who died yesterday. We have turned the dying into statistics before they are even buried.

Anti Covid protesters in Hyde Park. They want their freedom. While people are dying. Lunatics. Are they free to sign a form to say they won’t need treatment if they become ill?

Days like this I’m ashamed to be associated with the British Media. In the past, terror attack coverage has focussed on the terror, the victims, the childrenThis morning the focus is on an angelic blonde blue eyed young boy.When have we ever called a terrorist angelic? Shameful.

Really impressed by New Zealand PM ⁦⁩ - this is such a powerful image to send out. Meeting members of the Muslim community and already talking of changing gun laws too. Swift, strong leadership. We stand together.
