A week is a long time in politics and the spread of Black Lives Matter mayhem to the UK has left the lockdown in tatters.  We could probably now add more than another dozen MPs to this meme, originally posted on Sunday 31 May.  Barry Gardiner, Dawn Butler, Bell Ribeiro-AddyTaiwo Owatemi and Nadia Whittome are among the Labour MPs who have directly participated in the protests in recent days.  Their enthusiasm to abandon the lockdown to jump on a bandwagon of hate leaves their campaign against Dominic Cummings all but dead.  They no longer have any moral high ground with regards to the lockdown.  However, with the Brexit extension deadline looming at the end of the month there may well be further lines of attack in the coming weeks.
