America is reeling from its worst school shooting since Sandy Hook in 2012. Nineteen children, aged between seven and 10, and two adults were killed by a lone gunman at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. “Why are we willing to live with this carnage?” said Joe Biden in an emotional speech. Sue Gray’s Partygate report, which slates the “failures of leadership and judgement” in No 10, has finally been published in full. The 37-page document details Downing Street staffers being sick, getting into a fight and sneering at a security guard who asked them to stop partying. The BBC has apologised for broadcasting messages reading “Manchester United are rubbish” and “Weather rain everywhere” on its news channel ticker yesterday. The gaffe was blamed on a trainee who accidentally published practice news alerts.
