The holiday chain Pontins used a list of Irish second names, headed 'Undesirable Guests', to bar guests from a Travelling community background. 'We do not want these guests on our parks', wrote the management. Let's look at the names. (Thread) https://t.co/MkKWu9MuX6

As the pandemic deepens and lockdowns spread, Europeans are saving more and growing increasingly pessimistic about the future, a Reuters analysis of data shows. Only one country bucks the trend: Sweden https://t.co/E7RDCoQzhp by @johnodonnell21 and @OvaskaOvaska

I have watched a lot of the press conferences over the last year. Some have been immensely useful, others not so much. Surely they could find time to have just one dedicated to non-COVID health conditions. It would send a strong signal and I think it could really help.

Just going through Wirecard documents. The amount of mumbo jumbo is just incredible. In December 2019, with the help of McKinsey, they claimed that the "Wirecard ecosystem" would "truly distrupt the full coffee supply chain" https://t.co/pA2nJe26Zn

As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome. Noam Chomsky

A majority of foreign-born Germans and their offspring now support center-right parties, a development showing how decades of immigration into Europe has transformed the continent’s demographics and is reshaping politics in unexpected ways. My @WSJ report https://t.co/jDRwiDciWY
