Twitter Web App : "You can tell by the grammar and spelling." Another fabulous dispatch on the tribes of modern England. twitter.com/elliott_kime/s…

Twitter Web App : By me and Cal Flyn for this week's The Economist on the challenge some of Britain's prettiest places face in protecting lives and livelihoods

Twitter Web App : "They need us to focus on their needs and not a political ding-dong on what a political adviser may or may not have done." Reminiscent of the "stop the arguments" strain of the 2019 Tory campaign.

Twitter Web App : It's not Dominic Cummings who has muddied the public's understanding of the lockdown -- but his critics, suggests Boris Johnson. “When they hear nothing but politicians squabbling and bickering it’s no wonder that they wonder feel confused and bewildered.”

Twitter Web App : A short piece in The Economist on the Maximator signals-intelligence alliance between Denmark, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands and France. Formed in the 1970s, active today—and described in public for the first time last month. economist.com/europe/2020/05…

Twitter Web App : Henry Mance Jim Waterson The partic damage is that so much of his role in government rests on the idea that he has unusually good insights on AI, research funding, organisational theory, etc, which has mostly rested on the blog...

Twitter Web App : For a pair whose political success lay in hearing acutely suburban England's resentment of shifty, unsackable political elites, it has been a remarkably tone-deaf weekend. economist.com/britain/2020/0…

Twitter Web App : A really interesting counterpoint to Britain's experience. Japan has seen just 784 deaths, but the government is still regarded as having mishandled the crisis economist.com/asia/2020/05/2…

Twitter Web App : Cummings: “The rules *necessitate* that your exercise judgement. If you look at the actual official rules on the NHS website, you can’t do anything but exercise judgement.. there is no regulation covering what I found myself in on Friday night.”
