It’s going to take a while to fully process the fact that a small bunch of Whitehall/Westminster apparatchiks have had the material to destroy the Prime Minister, but only if a small bunch of newspaper editors were in the right mood

The Djokovic thing is just a mass referendum on which evil one considers most serious lately: libertarianism amok or state power.

Disappointed but not surprised to see little to no comment in Sunday papers on biggest bill passed this week [Compare the national and international outrage, rightly so over CAA in India].What does this say about Britain, its media and indeed its people?

Disappointing Indian silence on Biden’s exclusion of Bangladesh from democracy summit while Pakistan was cravenly invited. About time India showed the courage to speak for its friends.

Global Times is ridiculous, but it is Chinese state-owned media. We can’t toss it as a joke when it oozes ugly schadenfreude over the death of Gen & Mrs Rawat, others in the cash. Just days after our government bent over backwards to back China on Winter Olympics.
