Exactly! This isn't at all sustainable and it should never have come to this.

Judicial reviews (JRs) are an important way for citizens and civil society to hold government to account. Now the UK govt has ordered a review of JRs, ostensibly to assess whether the balance is right. Here's more on the review h/t:

Ronke is amazing. You should definitely buy this (even if you don't have that media interview lines up yet).

Are you nervous? I am. The call for evidence closed on the 19th of Oct, the review & report will take a while but now is the time to start organizing, deepening your understanding and making noise (incl writing to your MP). Would love to hear and thoughts.

The review will focus on: "on how well or effectively judicial review balances the legitimate interest in citizens being able to challenge the lawfulness of executive action with the role of the executive in carrying on the business of government, both locally and centrally”

This is worth following & making noise about. Any restrictions on or loss of access to, judicial review (JR) would be a heavy blow to *all* of us. Government accountability is central to a well functioning society. JR are one of the remaining levers available for doing that.

Nicely put by . I always think about this (the reductionism) and how boring reading papers and even emails is going to become as the effect of algorithmically-driven text prompts has more fully filtered through.

Accountability is important. That's why Nigerians continue to ask these questions

Imagine a situation in which a governor requesting the army send in soldiers to shoot lawful protesters in his own state, is a plausible scenario. Just imagine.

There may well be other things happening behind the scenes and if there are I hope it comes out and wrongs are righted but it's hard for me to be full-throated in support of Özil.

whose treatment of the Kurdish minority in (and near) Turkey has been awful; not that Erdogan's autocratic tendencies start or end there. Özil isn't being played but he remains on his very lucrative £350K/week contract with Arsenal which is pretty good for a footballer his age

Like many ethnic minority players, he's subject to a level of press criticism that white players aren't and racism is a factor in that. Having said that, while Özil has indeed spoken up on the treatment of Uighur muslims he's also been uncritical in his support for Erdogan...

Abeba Birhane is speaking so much sense.

This is true at both the state and federal level (and it trickles down to more local leadership too).

The Nigerian govt has nothing but contempt for its citizens. This is the governor of Lagos state (where the took place) admitting on CNN that indeed the army was involved in the attack on peaceful protesters, having originally denied it to local media

This is really poor framing by the documentary makers. And it's unjustifiable in 2020 given all the work that various advocacy groups have done to highlight why this sort of framing is problematic. Do better, BBC.

If you're going to use quote marks, could you please update your tweet to accurately reflect what actually said? It was the Nigerian police force that she said was created by colonialists not SARS.
