Manchester bombing


#1

Campaigning for the GE has been suspended given the bombing last night, and we should also respect that. I’ve made sure we don’t have anything scheduled on social media.


#2

I can confirm that nothing is scheduled. Should we draft a post of condolences?


#3

Agreed.

I’m always torn on letters of condolence, as I think they often seem like a way to just grab attention from tragedy. I’ll just be staying quiet, personally.

I think we can react a little later, but there’s no need to “grab the news cycle”.


#4

Yeah, maybe just something short like: ‘Our thoughts are with the families affected by the tragedy in Manchester on Monday evening.’
