The impact of Brexit on the travel industry has been "absolutely massive, which goes way beyond the Covid impact," says @SimonCalder at today's live evidence session, covering: 1. Major staff shortages 2. Lack of information from Government over new travel rules 3. New red tape

Why the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill is the wrong way to solve the problem....
We have a world class music industry, but instead of helping it to thrive the Government’s Brexit deal has made life more difficult for our musicians, performers and all the people who help them to tour. It’s time for the Home Office sort this out. twitter.com/BestForBritain…
“The Beatles famously made their name in Europe and it’s on tour that many musicians gain the formative experiences and audiences they need to take off," says @pimlicat. bestforbritain.org/tough_gig_45_d…

Is it any wonder that according to HMRC, the number of UK businesses exporting goods to the EU has fallen by an astonishing 33 per cent - down from 27,321 in 2020 to 18,357 in 2021 ? twitter.com/cabinetofficeu…

As Britain faces its worst heatwave warning ever, it beggars belief that leadership candidates are tripping over each other to dump climate commitments. The Conservative party is completely detached from reality and the British people.

Apparently the NHS is going to be taking £30bn out of their budget as waiting lists reach record highs. And looking forward to finding out which Tory MP will agree to be the Defence Secretary whose main job is shrinking the army yet again. Simply not serious. twitter.com/AdamBienkov/st…

Making Brexit boring. New post on my Brexit & Beyond Blog. Years ago, on Monday, Starmer broke his Brexit silence. Brexit will still be with us when Johnson goes, so what should be made of Starmer's proposals, and how might Johnson's demise affect them? chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2022/07/making…

I’ve always said no rules were broken when I was in Durham.   The police have completed their investigation and agreed: there is no case to answer.   For me, this was always a matter of principle. Honesty and integrity matter. You will always get that from me.

@AntonSpisak adds “When I was part of the negotiating scene as a civil servant, it was clear to everyone that the consequences we are seeing right now, both political consequences and economic consequences, would be the results of the arrangements proposed by the current PM.” 13/

ok, thread on interim/ acting/ caretaker PMs/ governments. TL;DR: there are rules. But, yet again, its based on convention.

3. After 12 years, we desperately need a fresh start with a different government. #Labour
2. Conservative MPs knew exactly what Boris Johnson was like when they backed him for the leadership originally, so they will continue to bear a heavy responsibility for this whole terrible mess.
1. The PM’s resignation has been inevitable for some time, but he has done huge damage not only to the Conservative party but also to Britain’s standing in the world.

Indeed, which is why our democracy is so precious and why so many Tory MPs are finally, if belatedly, standing up against the man who has sought to subvert its very foundations. twitter.com/BBCJLandale/st…
While the end of the Prime Minister’s term of office seems imminent, we have been debating his profoundly mistaken decision to cut the UK’s aid budget and abolish DFID. It was criticised from all sides and it is one of many reasons why his departure cannot come soon enough.
Great turnout at today’s House of Commons event in support of the new Leeds Children’s Hospital and Adult Hospital Building. We’re ready to go and all we need is for the Treasury to give us the money to start work ! @julianhartley1 @LeedsHospitals @Leeds_Childrens @RishiSunak
So sad and awful. All our thoughts are with those grieving for the terrible loss of such a young life. twitter.com/SkyNews/status…

A very clear take on the impact of Brexit on food security and the cost of living from @scotfoodjames: "Brexit has made absolutely nothing better and it's made a lot of things worse," citing: - Weaker pound - Extra costs for businesses - Labour market shortages - New red tape

Providing yet more proof that Ministers are making the wrong choices for our economy these figures underline both the absence of a serious plan to accelerate exports & just how poor a deal ⁦@BorisJohnson⁩ negotiated with the EU; our key trade partner ft.com/content/a31b4b…
