This is the husband of teacher Eva Mireles, who contacted him on his phone from her classroom while he was on-scene to say that she’d been shot and was dying. 1/2 #txlege #Uvalde

My god. And I always wonder why British people get sucked into this nonsense. Yes people say all kinds of rubbish, but this level of conspiratorial fantasy is so completely jarring with what’s acceptable on TV in the UK.…

Good things about rain in the summer: - You can run without fear of killing yourself through overheating - Air quality is really good. AQI was 6 this morning. Six!

the new yeezys look like a Great British Baking Show challenge gone terribly wrong, like lemon tarts that were meant to look like sneakers suddenly collapsed in the middle and they just brought this to the judging table and cried

Sigh. Although notable that Omi and others don't appear to be pushing for new restrictions, relying on people to continue to be sensible (although unclear if that will be enough given the ways these numbers are rising). Border reopening starts to look more precarious for sure.…
Japan's former prime minister Shinzo Abe will cast a long shadow over the country's politics. Thanks to @PaulJNadeau and @drpersuasion for talking to me about his legacy:…

I get the interest in the Unification Church, but my strong suspicion is that understanding the assassin's motivations from the context of his economic situation - where is mother's donations could have been devastating to his finances - will tell you more about modern Japan

My theory for why the UK is lagging behind other G7 countries is because they're obsessed with grey squirrels. Major issues are going unaddressed as the nation dedicates all its energy to this battle with the grey squirrels.…

Tokyo right now: Prime Minister Kishida giving presser, as a hearse arrives to transport former prime minister Abe's body from his home to Zojoji temple for a wake, and the Unification Church speaks on reports the suspected assassin's mother was a member
Unification Church has a press conference at 2pm in Tokyo but only for pre-approved Japanese press. Will we see the dam break on the self-censorship after this?

Maybe with the exception of Komeito, which did its usual thing, the numbers seem relatively subdued for all? The LDP was closer to the lower end of the expected range, not close to an absolute majority of its own. Ishin's performance was good but below expectations.…

Polls are now open in Japan for upper house elections, which are taking place just two days after the assassination of former prime minister Shinzo Abe.
"Security was lax. It exposed, I think, how #Japan was complacent in thinking everything is safe here" Undeterred by afternoon downpours, a stream of mourners kept crowding a makeshift memorial to pay respect to exPM Abe My @AFP report from the scene

Looks like 3.9 mag, 10km depth in Kanagawa, no tsunami warning. Short sharp shake in Tokyo. Let's hope that's it for the night?…
Cool, an earthquake, that's all we need.
Incredible props to @AFP's team on the ground in Nara, @TomohiroOsaki @fong_fifi and @atishpatel who worked through the night and went right back to it this morning from the scene of Abe's assassination.…

It’s pretty ironic that after years of trying to get people to pay attention to what’s happening in Japan and resigning myself to that fact that it’s a niche box, the moment comes when everyone’s interested and I’m completely lost for trying explain any meaning

As a former employee of the LDP, someone once heavily involved in Japanese campaigns, and a years-long researcher on Japanese politics who’s written extensively on Abe and more, anyone telling you that they know exactly what Abe’s assassination means is full of shit.

Unbelievable day for @AFP's Japan team, on the ground in Nara and Tokyo. If we're quiet on Twitter it's because we're frantically filing for our clients around the world.…
11 hours on and still utterly flabbergasted.
I am deeply shocked and saddened by the passing of former PM ABE Shinzo. It was my honor to have served in the cabinet of this great leader.
