Latest updates: No 10 says investigation will only be launched ‘if there was any evidence’ to support the claims, despite calls from Labour and Tory MPsBlackmail allegations need to be investigated, says Kwasi KwartengTruss says Johnson doing ‘fantastic job’ but avoids leadership questionGlobal coronavirus updates – liveNo 10 has insisted the inquiry being carried out by senior official Sue Gray into gatherings across Whitehall during Covid-19 restrictions is independent.Gray’s investigation has consistently been described as “independent” despite her being a senior civil servant.A spokesman for the prime minister said:It is for that inquiry, that team, to establish the facts, we’ve said before ... it’s an independent investigation team, I think we’ve set that out from the start.I was campaigning for a range of different things for my constituents, particularly my constituents will remember my campaign on link road.There were some very dicey votes for the government and I was campaigning to receive government funding, and of course one of the tactics used to make sure I fell into line on some of the Brexit rebellions was to threaten the withholding of money to pay for an investigation into whether or not this link road would have been built.

Biden’s administration is in shambles. It’s not entirely his fault | Osita Nwanevu
While Biden has made mistakes, his biggest obstacles – such as electoral biases built into the US system – are not his doingA year into his term, the Biden administration is in shambles. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s support for the legislative filibuster has killed the Democratic voting rights push. Biden’s Build Back Better plan, a massive reconciliation package containing initiatives on issues from climate change to childcare is, for now, dead in the water; Manchin and Sinema will determine whether any of its provisions survive in attenuated form.Immigration reform and healthcare reform, both central to Democratic intra-party debates during the 2020 primaries, have fallen entirely off the radar. The US supreme court may overturn Roe v Wade in the coming months. The latest wave of the coronavirus pandemic is still ravaging the country thanks not only to Covid denialists and vaccine skeptics on the right, but an administration that has struggled to keep its pledges on easy access to tests. Abroad, Biden’s courageous withdrawal from Afghanistan ⁠– a kept promise even the president’s harshest critics on the left were willing to give him credit for ⁠– has been marred by economic sanctions that have left 23 million Afghans without enough to eat, and the media is already itching to blame Biden for a Russian invasion of Ukraine.Osita Nwanevu is a Guardian US columnist Continue reading...
