The key point from my piece for @SkyNews - the Government must take responsibility for sorting the chaos on our railways. Grayling must stop passing the buck. #OneNorth @henrimurison @yorkshirepost @OpinionYP

The Parliamentary press gallery has lost its electricity (again), so I fully expect the Sue Gray report to arrive in the next 10 minutes

A 12-year-old girl was among those stopped during a road safety operation in Wakefield last week. She was using a quad bike on a road with no insurance or licence. Read more at: westyorkshire.police.uk/news…

This is why I keep saying this party stuff really does matter. It's not about cake and booze, it's about the fact the PM cannot be trusted. If he isn't honest about this he won't be honest about other things + they could be (in the Aghanistan case were) matters of life + death.

A timeless tweet from @yorkshirepost coverage of #LoanCharge. 'How is any of this justice? It's the same for any nurse or doctor who has saved a life.'
A #loancharge victim (forces veteran) has told me: " How is any of this justice. It's the same for any nurse or a doctor who has saved a life. If we knew this was wrong or there would be a charge against these loans, not a single person would have taken up on these schemes."

Number 10’s spokesman has previously promised to publish report in full. Odd that we’re being told there’s still a decision to be made by the PM about what’s published 👀
Latest on Sue Gray report: + Her report will be all events not a “split” one, so it won’t just be non-police ones. + There is then the decision re what gets made publicly available: the whole thing OR just a summary of findings. + SG expects whole thing to be published 1/2

Cracking picture. When I met Johnson I asked him when does he get time to walk his dog and he said very early in the morning when nobody is up. Guess this photographer was up before him 🤣👍

Still much uncertainty but fwiw am told by WH sources that Gray report will “100%” be handed over today. Also told that Gray has already briefed No10 on contents and that “it’s not good news.” Doesn’t mean we’ll see it today, of course, nor exactly what we’ll see when we do.

A bit late to the party on this but better late than never right? A few weeks ago we went above the #cloudinversion on #burleymoor and had the most incredible view. The climate up there was totally different too - warm, still and sunny

It's interesting the different strategies being employed by Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak to Partygate. Truss being the conspicuous loyalist. Rishi being conspicuous by his absence.

When even the former Tory Transport Secretary says the rail plan for the North isn’t good enough you know you’re in trouble. Bus funding halved, trains scrapped, powers taken by central government - we deserve so much better than this. yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/pol…

Profumo didn't resign because he had an affair. He resigned because he lied to Parliament. If our leaders with their nuclear arsenal, their power to imprison, tax & regulate us are lying to us- then that is no democracy It's not about cake or sex. It's about law & power
