@cathyby @Simon4NDorset @CommonsNIAC spent some time on the issue that UK government’s justification for the NI Protocol Bill would be undermined unless they have a guarantee from Sinn Fein as well as DUP they will both participate in the NI Executive if it is enacted @sylviademars

One other thing. If a Prime Minister with a majority of almost 80 bowled up to the palace only half-way through their term, with a parliamentary standards committee hot on their heels, and asked for an election I think the Queen might have something to say about it.

Amb @AdrianGONeill with @PlayhouseDerry following the staging of ‘The Crack In Everything’ in Westminster.

Drawing from all sides of the community, the play tells the stories of 6 families who experienced the killing of a child during the Troubles.

An interesting opening to the NI Affairs Ctte in which Prof Alan Boyle says the Protocol Bill doesn’t breach international law because of Art 16. But he is ‘aghast’ that HMG is citing necessity which amounts to an admission of a beach.

A really thought provoking production which came to Parliament yesterday delivered with skill and sensitivity. Huge thanks to ⁦@columeastwood⁩ for arranging. Food for thought as we begin the Committee Stage of Legacy Bill today

It suggests a majority in favour of the protocol. On the central question ‘The Protocol is a on balance good thing for NI’ it is 53% agree, 37% disagree, 10% neutral/ don’t know.

That’s the highest percentage for ‘Agree’ in this series:

March 2021 AGREE 43% DISAGREE 44%
June 2021 AGREE 43% DISAGREE 48%
October 21 AGREE 52% DISAGREE 41%
Feb 22 AGREE 50% DISAGREE 41%

The Mayor, Cllr Colin Stevens presented a Certificate of Appreciation to caretaker, John Scott this evening with today being 20 years since the start of his employment! Cllr Stevens congratulated John on this special anniversary and thanked him for his commitment and hard work.

Hats off to @theresa_may for speaking out on the NI Protocol bill, arguing the bill "is not legal under international law", "it will not achieve its aims" as it won't get the EU to change its stance, and it "diminishes the UK's standing in the world". Says she won't support it.

"I do not welcome this bill," says former prime minister Theresa May on the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill

She says the bill is not "legal under international law"

Conservative MP Simon Hoare says that if a Labour government were planning to break international law as the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill does they would all accuse them of "not being fit for government."

"For a Tory to have to point this out to fellow Tories is shameful."

A party fit for a Queen @BFTC_Blandford- Community rallies to give Annie Dennett, 108, the royal garden party she missed out on: 👑👑🥰https://www.itv.com/news/meridian/2022-06-26/dorsets-oldest-woman-too-poorly-to-travel-gets-royal-garden-party-at-108

A very special Armed Forces Day for me with the ‘public’ handover of the office of the Branch President from Mr Gyan Tamang.

I would like to say thank you to everyone for attending the Service including the Mayor of Blandford, Cllr Colin Stevens and North Dorset MP Simon Hoare.

A fanfare fit for Dorset’s oldest resident, Annie Dennett, played beautifully by Geordie Thomson, flanked by Standard Bearers and Mace Bearers. @BFBSBlandford @BLANDFORDRBL

What a joy to join Nan Dennett my oldest constituent who’s 109 next month to celebrate with her daughters, ⁦@BFTC_Blandford, Deputy Lord Lieutenant, & many from across Blandford who came together for a wonderful garden party. What a time she’s lived through. Happy Birthday!

Good to see work progressing at Blandford Forum Parish Church. Will be wonderful to see the building restored to former glories and continuing its ministry at the heart of the community ⁦@chrisbeaumont_⁩ ⁦@BlandfordCofE⁩ ⁦@BFTC_Blandford⁩

Super Armed Forces Day service at Blandford Royal British Legion ⁦@PoppyLegion⁩ Great to see former President Gyan Tamang receive his Legion Gold Badge
