.@jimmycarr 's new book is obviously funny- but it’s also spectacularly generous & wise. I wish I'd read it when I was a teenager, I've made sure my kids have read it now, & if I could, I'd put it on the school curriculum. Most surprisingly, it's also touching. twitter.com/jimmycarr/stat…
Delighted to share the news that Mulaqat (Sandstorm), directed by Seemab Gul @SeemabG1 and produced by Abid Aziz Merchant @abidazizmerchan, has been selected in this year's Orizzonti Short Films Competition at the 78th Venice Film Festival @la_Biennale
Why do we put up with motorbikes so loud that when they pass through a city at night, they might wake thousands?
That, during the day, cut through our thoughts and grate on our nerves?
For the pleasure of a few, the peace of many is shattered.
And God knows we need peace.

My kids are “being raised in the lap of the Jews,” announced @MaryamNSharif today.
I left Pakistan in 2004 after a decade of antisemitic attacks by the media & politicians (& weekly death threats & protests outside my house). But still it continues images.dawn.com/news/1188041
🤷♂️ The thing about the £37bn Dido Harding 'spaffed' on Test and Trace - a sum larger than Gordon Brown has estimated it would cost to vaccinate the whole world - is that (I believe) we still have no idea where all the money went. 🤷♂theguardian.com/commentisfree/…xD
I don't care who said it.
"What is it about (current political) parties that give choices like Johnson versus Corbyn? And what is it about Whitehall that promotes so many senior people who are so out of their depth?"
Whoever issued the directive (@MattHancock ?) to wilfully deceive the public about testing & PPE numbers needs to publicly apologise.
It’s outrageous. Testing directly relates to life and death, how we control the virus & how we safely exit the lockdown. twitter.com/Jemima_Khan/st…
Wow. After @MattHancock is caught out directly contradicting the official advice on his own government website, the website is edited.
The messaging from the government during this crisis has been a shambles & the dishonesty is staggering. twitter.com/Jemima_Khan/st…
This is beyond parody. The gov reportedly counting saliva & nasal samples taken from the same patient as 2 tests, to artificially swell testing numbers & mislead the public (after already being caught counting gloves individually to increase PPE figures) theguardian.com/world/2020/may…
I remember years ago being in Saudi Arabia and an elderly woman in an abaya & niqab was lamenting the fact that when she went out she was followed & harassed by young men. The only way to get rid of them was to take her face covering OFF.
The problem is not how women dress!
If I were PM for a day I would ban boarding schools for under 13s. Untold damage has been done to countless young boys at those institutions where astonishing cruelty and abuse was the norm. google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theg…
