A growing number of parties

Scores of suspects

Hundreds of witnesses

Hours of CCTV footage

Pages of notes & visitor logs

Thousands of email chains

It is absurd to expect Sue Gray to complete this investigation into her seniors in a week

This should be a @metpoliceuk matter
This was Kit Malthouse on 6 December👇

He starts by saying no rules were broken at the No.10 party & finishes by saying he doesn’t know if there was an event

@kitmalthouse has been glued to @BorisJohnson’s side since before he was mayor of London.
An inquiry into illegal gatherings is one thing, but many of the BIG questions are still to be even asked, like:

“Which Minister authoritised sending people from hospitals to care homes without testing?”

I broke the #CareHomeScandal on 13/5/20 but am still waiting for an answer
On 19 March 2020, every NHS & Foundation Trust received this letter👇together with Hospital Discharge Requirements “which set out action which must be taken immediately” - i.e. to send patients to care homes

Was this authoritised by a govt Minister?

If so, which one?
The PM attempted to blame care homes

“They didn't follow procedures"

They did

He attempted to blame the science

“We didn't know about asymptomatic transmission”

We did

He blames anyone & never accepts responsibility for his actions

That’s his plan!

On 13/3/20, @Telegraph ran this piece by Bobby Friedman:

“Anyone questioning the govt's COVID strategy is not only wrong, they're a danger to us all"

From the early days of the #COVID19 pandemic, the heat was being turned up on those journalists who were trying to do their jobs Image
“Forget the myths. Follow the money”

Following the money is key to good journalism

It means not being distracted by the army of “dead cats” scattered across the landscape, but focusing on the REAL motivations driving those who make decisions #THREAD👇

1/. “Everything I know about morality & the obligations of men I owe to football” (Camus)

Football teaches us about team work & camaraderie, courage & fair play but most importantly it teaches us that some things are more important than winning #AFCON2021
2/. The lessons offered by football extend beyond our individual & collective behaviours

Just as FIFA sets the rules of the game on the pitch, so bodies such as the UN, set out rules on the world stage through a framework of intn'l law #AfricaCupOfNations
3/. Just as the rules of football ensure fairness on the pitch, so human rights ensure fairness around the world

Footballers should be free to express themselves on the pitch in the same way we should all be free to express our views & beliefs. #AFCON2021

1/. In 1898, Mbuya Nehanda & Sekuru Kaguvi who led a rebellion against British colonizers in what is now Zimbabwe, were hanged

Their heads & those of other rebel leaders were cut off, taken to Britain & displayed as war trophies

124 years on, their heads are in the @NHM_London
2/. “And they call us ‘savages’!”

Mbuya Nehanda & Sekuru Kaguvi were involved in the Ndebele-Shona revolt against the Cecil Rhodes’ British South Africa Company after the company introduced a hut tax

Discussions around repatriation began in 2014
3/. Today we went to the Natural History Museum to see if we could get the director, Doug Gurr & curator @NatHistGirl to agree to send the skulls of Nehanda & Kaguvi back to Zimbabwe were they can be buried with the respect & reverence they deserve.
