The UK has spent more money fighting Covid-19 than almost all comparable countries but still languishes towards the bottom of league tables of economic performance in 2020 and deaths caused by the virus, according to research.

The actual problem for the Trump campaign is that the judges - three of them - did understand its legal arguments.

The PA Supreme Court dismisses the case brought by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election. This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in.

THREAD: I just spent 3 days with frontline workers at hospitals in a part of Appalachia where hospitalizations have more than doubled in the last month. But hospital staff say many in their hard-hit communities still don’t believe COVID is real. Misinformation is rampant.

I’ve read some utter tosh on the state of the UK public finances in the last few days. Here's an attempt to correct some of the biggest misunderstandings. Most importantly, government debt does not have to be ‘repaid’, only serviced... (1/19)

This is completely wrong *even on its own terms*. The report says that GDP will be 13% down on last December. It does *not* say that the new restrictions will cut GDP by 13%.

Good evening all, hope you've had a good day today! Rather murky and dull here today, got out for a walk but no photos. Ill leave you with this, I liked the sunlight on the horses face as he looks towards it, wondered what he was thinking :)

The evidence for a 'rigged' election is so preposterous as of late that it's difficult to argue that any series of reforms would have avoided this mess
