Dominic Cummings advised Sir Keir Starmer to campaign harder on crime as he launched a two-pronged Twitter attack on Labour and the Tories following Friday's election results. Mr Cummings, chief adviser to Boris Johnson until December last year, took Sir Keir to task over his focus on "media reality" and the "babble" of journalists. "We have a Number 10 and Opposition who see their job as Media Entertainment Service and neither knows how to do this better than TB/Mandy [Tony Blair and Peter Mandelson]," he wrote. "Neither will try to be… a government." Attacking Sir Keir, whom he described as "bad", Mr Cummings also claimed he did not know who the shadow chancellor was until he googled it on Wednesday. "She [Anneliese Dodds] never touched my consciousness in a year," he said, adding that there was "zero impact of any Labour economic message of any kind".

A sixth-grade girl in Idaho opened fire on her classmates Thursday, wounding two fellow students and a school staff member.Local police said the girl was later disarmed by a teacher at Rigby Middle School, more than 200 miles east of Boise, and held until authorities arrived.The girl's name and exact age were not immediately released.Jefferson School District Superintendent Chad Martin says students were immediately sent home with their parents and that classes would be cancelled the following day."We train very frequently with the sheriff and also on our own for situations, I don't think we can ever fully be prepared, but I feel like our staff reacted and our students reacted in the best possible way for the best possible outcome. We will obviously take time over the next days and weeks to re-evaluate and see where we can continue to improve."Several law enforcement agencies are investigating the shooting, which erupted shortly after 9 am local time.Depending on the outcome of the investigation, Jefferson County prosecutor Mark Taylor said charges against the girl could include three counts of attempted murder.Medical staff said none of the gunshot wounds were life-threatening.The school staff member is being treated and released for his injury, while the two students are being kept overnight for observation.Idaho Governor Brad Little issued a brief statement shortly after the shooting, writing that he was "staying updated on the situation" and thanking school leaders and law enforcement for their efforts.

The Libyan coastguard has prompted uproar after it opened fire on Italian fishermen, wounding a skipper, from a patrol vessel donated by the Italian government. Italian MPs condemned the attack on Thursday and reacted with fury to the revelation that the vessel had been donated by Rome to Libya to help intercept migrants trying to reach southern Europe from the Libyan coast. Italy is one of several EU countries that have given the Libyans training and equipment in efforts to staunch the flow of thousands of asylum seekers and economic migrants crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa.

Conservatives say McConnell is battling the Democrats' voting rights bill with 'Supreme Court fight' fervor
Florida on Thursday joined Georgia in enacting a sweeping Republican election law that constricts voting rights in the state, and Texas, which already had some of the most stringent voting laws in the country, is on the cusp of joining them. Democrats were not able to stop the new voting laws in the country's biggest red states, but House Democrats passed their own countervailing national voting rights legislation, the "For the People Act" or HR1, in March, and Senate Democrats are working on their own version, S1. When Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that "100 percent of my focus is on stopping this new administration," these voting reform bills might have been what he had in mind. McConnell has publicly and privately conveyed his fervent opposition to the legislation. But "what's different, conservatives say, is his personal level of commitment behind-the-scenes to educate activists on just how damaging the legislation would be to the future electoral prospects of Republicans," McClatchy D.C. reports. "So many times the conservative movement only works with McConnell when it's a Supreme Court nomination, or a Supreme Court fight," Jessica Anderson, executive director of Heritage Action, tells McClatchy. "And so we've been trying to change that with HR 1 and S1 and really make this fight similar and more akin to a Supreme Court fight, where it's like an all-hands-on-deck effort." As the Senate prepares to mark up the legislation in the Rules & Administration Committee next week, "some progressives have warned that McConnell is taking the legislation more seriously than even Democrats are," McClatchy reports. "At the moment, McConnell looks to hold the advantage," with moderate Democrats "fretting about the sheer size of the bill" and Republicans confident Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) will side with them in the 50-50 Senate.
