Flipping through the major newspapers this morning and not finding any profiles of Biden voters in diners who felt left behind these past few years and are excited for the new governing majority. Why is that?
This article is raising its head again. Once more we need to stress that this will only apply to SOME UK nationals who can combine statuses. It is not FoM, these are limited mobility rights subject to strict criteria which some people can access... https://twitter.com/BritishInEurope/status/1291767673966264321

Love this. The percentage of people in France who want to take the Covid vaccine is growing steadily.

Two quotes from today’s Observer struck me. The first is from Andrew Rawnsley’s comment piece:

Yeah, you know a thing or two about professionally prepared provocation, right? https://twitter.com/RussianEmbassy/status/1353338151893409794
Hypocrites continue to inflate the fake #Navalny case to interfere into internal affairs of our country. This is a professionally prepared provocation, encouraged by embassies of Western countries, including US Embassy in Moscow.
