80 Years Ago on this day, September 26, 1940, WALTER BENJAMIN ended his life. Benjamin’s notebook in which he wrote down all the books he read since he was 18.

Replying to @TomTugendhat
The app requires newer iPhones than version 6, so useless for people like me.

And he knew how to lay his hands on any of these books.

Dominic Raab hasn’t even read the Good Friday Agreement. His excuse? ‘It’s not a novel’. No. It’s not even a novella. It’s 35 pages. More of a short story, really. Except it’s not a story - it’s real, with real world consequences that affect lives. Oh, and it’s HIS JOB.

Stanley Crouch, pugilist critic and jazz advocate, had a tough go of it the last several years, and especially the last several months. But if you ever got to know him, even just a little, a part of you believed nothing would ever take him down. Alas, today was the day.

It is astonishing that Johnson has mismanaged Brexit to such an extent that he’s united the US and the EU against him.

This is hot stuff! Speaking truth to power. Even if you are not a Brit, it’s a pleasure to watch.

This appointment is important because it embodies the penetration of fascism deep into the liberal state. Really appalling. I know there’s too much to protest, but even if you are not a Brit, help us fight this.

Since the new tracing programme in the UK is in the hands of the person who failed before, I am Tweeting the successful app developed by Columbia University. Rather than fail further, the UK should mimic it.
