This is mendacious rubbish for loads people on UC. For many, if they earn £200 a week, they will have to earn £67 a week more to make up for the £20 loss; and for someone currently not working at all, the figure will be £54. That's how the system works https://twitter.com/BBCBreakfast/status/1437311587988221952

some good news this morning; Mexico’s Supreme Court has voted to decriminalise abortion. https://www.npr.org/2021/09/07/1034925270/mexico-abortion-decriminalized-supreme-court

a beautiful clip. What a huge loss. Rest in peace, Michael K. Williams.

If you don’t know, you better ask somebody. His name was Michael K. Williams. He shared with me his secret fears then stepped out into his acting with true courage, acting in the face of fear, not in the absence of it. It took me years to learn what Michael had in abundance.

Nearly 20 years later, as the founder of the only all-girls boarding school in Afghanistan, I’m burning my students’ records not to erase them, but to protect them and their families.

I'm sorry to have to announce that our friend @DawnHFoster has passed away at home suddenly, aged 34. An elegant writer and eloquent commentator, Dawn effortlessly mastered a media mainstream loath to admit outsider perspectives.

Midnight in Withington. Quiet, peaceful, powerful.

great report on how thousands of videos of Uyghurs denying abuses against their community are showing up on Twitter and YouTube, as part of an elaborate influence campaign by Chinese officials to counter reports of human rights violations https://www.propublica.org/article/how-china-uses-youtube-and-twitter-to-spread-its-propaganda-version-of-life-for-uyghurs-in-xinjiang

I’m in shock. That building was my office for years. Now gone in an Israeli air attack. The BBC and AP also had offices there, but most of the floors were residential. So many more families are homeless in Gaza tonight. https://twitter.com/StefanieDekker/status/1393541536755986445
