This is one of my all-time favourite photos, taken at her 90th birthday when she was still able to leave her wonderful care home for visits. I’ve just taught her about selfies here... My heart goes out to all the families suffering right now. 💔

This is a heartbreaking but important thread from . Having watched my grandmother’s decline with dementia, I can’t imagine what life would be for her if she was still alive right now. We need to do so much better for our care homes, for patients and for staff.

Good snappy read, & it's hard to argue with this (⬇️). As with advice, is no time to be letting go of hard won gains, or relaxing governance standards, & may be time - eg property tax, excluding tax haven firms from public proc - to ratchet things up.

The utter, utter state of this. If it’s possible for a civic space to be sacred, the Lincoln Memorial is as close as it gets. It is literally a monument to freedom & emancipation for black people in the US & around the world. It’s where MLK Jr gave his ‘I have a dream’ speech.

‘Africa is doing great with COVID’ takes are as problematic as the ‘Africa is hopeless’ takes. They lack nuance, downplay complexity, still operate within the Western gaze. They also lack humility, we still have so much to learn about this crisis.

I've long found ways to explain complex issues to my kids in ways they can understand and relate to, which given the state of things right now means I'm explaining a lot lately. On this story...I've got nothing. I literally can't explain this.
