The national days of most post-colonial states celebrate independence FROM the colonial overlord, usually after a violent struggle. Australia actually celebrates the BEGINNING of colonisation as its national day. Do any other post-colonial peoples do this? #auspol #january26

Root could end his career on 50+. His batting in this test and last has been superb. Back-to-back centuries in Sri Lanka a great achievement. #SLvsENG #SrivsEng #SriLanka #Root

You have to go back to Wally Hammond, who averaged more than 58, to find an England player who both scored a lot of runs and had a 50+ average. Was that England’s last truly great batsman?

Genuine question: Why do none of England’s highest run scorers average 50+? Highest run scorers for India, Australia, WI, Pakistan and South Africa all average more than 50. None of England’s top 10 test run scorers have done so. Why? #SrivsEng #SLvsENG2021 https://t.co/wcWpJGzp2l

Richard Flanagan: ‘Art was something that happened elsewhere’ https://t.co/4jG6aeiFBq

Booker Prize-winner Richard Flanagan on Oxford, where dons called him convict and told him Australia had no culture: “These were people who thought women were slime, who thought black people were apes. These were people who didn’t think they were the master race, they knew it.” https://t.co/G5YFFUHfSH

Educators around world seek exam-based learning axed https://t.co/GAoTVQtZKv

Will we be less in thrall to high/secondary school exams after covid? At least 2 yrs of kids will have graduated without them and the world will go on. “Survey after survey says creativity, critical-thinking and communications are what we need. Exams don’t assess those things.” https://t.co/mKm8onYVS0
