"DC is enmired in ritual agony about government over-reach and fiscal irresponsibility. These are red herrings. The tale is a familiar one: medium-sized proposals get watered down by big lobbyists. Is it a surprise voters are so cynical?" My column. https://t.co/fsWzeda8We

There's no excuse for this. Thankyou Republicans. Thankyou "freedom". https://t.co/R0xuJYdVqx

Thinking of hosting a summit for nice people to which I’ll also invite some total wankers

In last few days, Putin has severed ties with NATO, said he won’t appear at G20 summit or Glasgow’s COP-26 and won’t release new gas supplies to ease Europe’s crunch. These signals are ominous.

"Donald Trump will be remembered in death as he was in life: A hateful, broken, man who always chose himself over his country.” Hard to quibble here with @ProjectLincoln (in response to Trump on Colin Powell's passing).

Was in London last week and startled to see most people on the Tube and other crowded indoor spaces not wearing masks. America has no monopoly on idiotic misapplications of "freedom". https://t.co/QXzkKgfyal

Really saddened to hear of Colin Powell's death from Covid complications. Had no idea he was sick.

“…you have to take seriously the worry of some women that if requirements for a recognised change of gender are almost completely removed, some men who are not genuinely trans will take advantage.” Brenda Hale, Britain’s first female Supreme Court head: https://t.co/LkmGkA0dmU

Could somebody please define “late stage capitalism” for me? Pretty sure I find the phrase annoying but happy to be corrected.

Oxford University Press kills off “To Kill a democracy” - a book on Indian illiberalism to avoid offending Narendra Modi, which perfectly illustrates the point of the book…https://t.co/kGaCvT65XD

They do. My personal view is that both Malpass and Georgieva should go and both jobs should be released from US-Europe stranglehold. Which is unlikely to happen.. https://t.co/u5DpKJ70r9

"US conservatives used to admire Orban from a distance. Now they want to emulate him from close-up. The reasons for Orban’s ascent in Republican eyes offers a road map on how the party plans to change America”. Me on Orban’s useful idiots... https://t.co/puy8frTPd6

“Joe Biden’s real opponents are special interests…we are witnessing a familiar tale: medium-sized proposals get watered down by big lobbyists. Is it any surprise voters are so cynical?” Very good essay on the fate of Build Back Better ⁦@EdwardGLucehttps://t.co/UeQEa1JC48

Those hoping to hear the US will open up to UK and EU travellers on Nov 1, news is not great. Official with knowledge has told me it’s “increasing unlikely that it will happen in early November.” All sorts of issues apparently. See this thread #LoveIsNotTourism

The Trump administration's ill-conceived deal with the Taliban continues to damage US national security. Now, the Taliban is using the agreement to protect al Qaeda. The infuriating details from @thomasjoscelyn. https://t.co/Jfrz2lZVqn

A lot of people call themselves reporters/journalists, but don't conduct interviews (except of other journalists), don't pull court documents or other government records and don't go witness things firsthand. Talking about other people's reporting doesn't make you a reporter.

One in four of the people who died from Covid-19 in the world yesterday did so in the United States.

BTW, however smoking hot today's takes on Germany may be, nothing will ever beat this @afneil effort from four years ago about the election that produced another tedious grand coalition being Germany's biggest political crisis since the 1940s. Vintage stuff.
