Boris Johnson’s upbeat new report on race says Britain is a “model for other white-majority countries.” Critics see a whitewash and a ploy to draw the left into a culture war. W/⁦@_StephenCastlehttps://t.co/v3PWsZp59S

Will pandemic kill UK's high-speed rail? Crossrail "would free up space on the current, creaking rail network, much of it dating from the 19th century, and it has the support of Boris Johnson. Jobs R also at stake." est at 30,000 via @_StephenCastle https://t.co/tPg6OMrX05

Supporters think it's a green alternative to cars and planes. Protest groups say it destroys the environment. But has the pandemic and a shift to homeworking tilted the argument against HS2, Britain's high speed rail link? https://t.co/6Is0nNjJOJ

The UK’s vaccine success has revived Boris Johnson’s fortunes. His allies hope the stark contrast with the EU’s failings will do something harder: vindicate Brexit. W/⁦@_StephenCastlehttps://t.co/mswzXlfYpo

A year after European leaders first locked down their countries, clashes between police and protesters are becoming commonplace. It’s raising deeper questions about the role of the police. W/⁦@_StephenCastlehttps://t.co/UnxBxTaR2a
