Manchester bombing


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.


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



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”.


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