    Just read somewhere that Razzell has refused to come off the bench.

    Has Hancock just announced tests for symptomatic under 5s? Didn't Cummings claim his 4 year old tested negative for C19?

    Re the Meg Hillier question: he said he had seen the evidence that showed allegations to be false and then declined to trouble the Cabinet Secretary with it. Obviously lying / making it up as he went along. But what physical evidence is there? I can only think of the Cummings statement that his diary or photos on his phone showed that he didn't return again to Durham on April 19? Cummings was quick to seize a personal (?) phone of a Javid aide who was marched out of Downing Street. Can nobody seize his phone to check his locations over the relevant period.

    Slight diversion but among the comments on the Maitlis intro on Newsnight is

    Maitlis not messing about on her intro there.

    There is running now in the fact that he definitely (provably) lied yesterday in saying that he had written about pandemic prep in his blog last year. It has now been shown that he added that bit the day after he came back from Durham.

    As someone on Twitter said, how mad must the ideas that were discarded have been for a 60 mile drive to test your eyesight to emerge as the winner?

    It may be a pity that so much was already out about Barnard Castle. He's had 48 hours to retro-fit his story to dovetail "perfectly" with the sighting(s). Stinks. Is this really the bloke everybody is terrified of?

    There appears to be no actual evidence that the child is autistic. He might be but a rumour and a deleted tweet are all that got it in a loop and trending.

    David Allen Green is not having the childcare line. Reckons it was retro-fitted to where the explanation then was. There is the quote from "inside Downing Street" that "the kid is the trump card"

    It would have been outside of his quarantine period but still covered by STAY AT HOME. Which is one reason why journalists should ask one very precisely worded question. Asking if he broke quarantine to visit BC invites a denial which would be sustainable. Johnson is reported to be taking today’s briefing. Media need to hunt in a pack if so and certainly need to put Sam Coates and Gary Gibbon up.

    As if Johnson was ever going to answer Gary Gibbons question and actually shut him down.

    Jenrick injured in warm up and Johnson comes off the bench. Heavy traffic means "briefing" put back to 1700.

    Jenrick being sent over the top today. They really are taking the píss.

    There is absolutely no humility from them, is there? (I know it's not a word they would be familiar with). They could have said that it was a serious misjudgment and misreading of the rules and got Cummings to issue a suitably abject apology and "given him a second chance" as he was only doing what he thought was best for his family blah blah. There is not the slightest intention to admit to the smallest of errors, never mind policies that have killed thousands. But no, even those ministers who must despise him are getting tweets written for them. One of our "edgier" posters occasionally throws in a description of the behaviour of some people in far off lands that apply more especially to this horrendous government - SAVAGES. Nye Bevan was right.

    Journalists at briefing actually showing up so far. Iain Watson and Sam Coates going after them about Cummings.

    It’s outrageous the way these “briefings” have been used to have a daily party political broadcast. Shapes is just boasting about new dual carriageways. edit: Tommo just beat me to it

    Hurrah, it's inevitably Patel on the lectern to explain quarantine rules. We must isolate for fourteen million and thirty five days, three thousand four hundred and seventeen.

    Remarkable performance really. Landed with Eustace passing everything across and a couple of awkward questions (Andy Bell (?) of C5 goes for it) she clearly would have happily flounced off while telling Eustace to f*** off over her shoulder.
