This just in- 'Democratic Republic of Congo: The Forgotten Tragedy' from @AlexCrawfordSky & @SkyNews WINS the #News #Award! "I hope this highlights that there is evil, but there is also inspiration sometimes among people in the most desperate of circumstances"

Whatever your views on @RoryStewartUK, you can't deny he's working his absolute socks off with his campaign. Media rounds this morning, after meeting Afghan President, he's in hustings with political journos, now at a rally in London. Meanwhile, Boris Johnson.. #WheresBoris

Quoted @bbc5live

“We still don’t know from Boris Johnson himself, whether he has five children or six… Why can’t he be more transparent?” Supporter @JohnnyMercerUK tells @EmmaBarnett why Mr Johnson is “well within his rights“ not to talk about his private life, even though he wants to be PM.

This is not my Mary Whitehouse moment. I don’t give two hoots if Johnson has 56 kids. What I care about is why can’t he be honest about something so simple? As a judge ruled re his extramarital child in 2013 - this is a public interest matter when judging fitness for high office

I’ve spent some time talking to Brussels folk about the @Conservatives leadership contest. Officials won’t interfere & so won’t speak on the record. But from my conversations their views tally with well-respected insiders who can talk to @SkyNews - pointed words in this thread

The courage of these protesters is real and commendable. They face genuine reprisals by Chinese authorities - 30 years almost to the day after China killed its own people in Tiananmen. Keep watching. This is a remarkable time. #HongKongProtests

So that bill delay didn’t exactly take the wind out of #HongKong’s anti-extradition protest movement... #China

As the Tory leadership contenders talk to @SophyRidgeSky and @AndrewMarr9.... a reminder in this thread 👇 that it’s important at least to hear what Brussels thinks of their promises and pledges on #Brexit - full details in last tweet.

EXCLUSIVE: A Chinese-owned firm is making circuit boards for US & UK #F35 jets. Exception PCB is based in Britain but owned by Shenzhen Fastprint in China. @LockheedMartin says it's not aware of other Chinese-owned suppliers "at this time" in supply chain.

Quoted @allisonpearson

Media bias is real and glaring and should be called out. Let’s hear them make personal attacks on thrice-married, weirdo Marxist anti-Semite Corbyn. It’s always attacks on the “extremist” right - ie millions, probably the majority, of people.

Unlike you print hacks tv journalists like @BethRigby and @bbclaurak are bound by regulators to be impartial. You know that very well. So, stop playing to your crowd and if you have a serious complaint take it to the regulators @ofcom If you don't then button it.

Still on the Irish border question - the most intractable of brexit issues - @sajidjavid told @SophyRidgeSky he can use money to solve the conundrum. 

He will pay @LeoVaradkar to help fund ‘alternative arrangements’ to avoid a hard border. 

What do the EU insiders make of that.

Brilliant update from @Stone_SkyNews on possible EU reactions to some of the different #Brexit solutions presented by candidates to become the next leader of the Conservative party and thereby the next UK PM #eudk

BREAK: Matt Hancock has just told me he’s withdrawing from the race. He says the first round of voting shows party wants a leader for the ‘here & now’ rather than from next generation. Won’t say who he’s going to back. Thinking over weekend. My interview on @SkyNews now. Tune in

Katie Hopkins goes on Israeli show to talk about her "documentary" about Jews leaving France "because of Muslims" - clearly expecting an easy ride - and gets absolutely ripped to shreds by host and guest @ktHopkins

Stop what you are doing and watch this. It is wonderful and delicate and very very moving. By ⁦@BrunoBoelpaep⁩ in the BBC’s Brussels bureau Euthanasia: 'I don’t feel like I’m killing the patient’ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-48626544 …

This is indeed very powerful and thought-provoking. Huge respect to the people in the film who allowed @BrunoBoelpaep to tell their stories.

In 2018 @BorisJohnson supported leaders debates (“as many as possible” in fact) so the ball is now in his court. The other six contenders have written an open letter stressing their commitment to take part 👉 http://news.sky.com/story/boris-johnson-under-pressure-to-debate-in-tory-leadership-hustings-11741507 …
