Hong Kong activists turned away in bid for refuge at U.S. Consulate, advocacy group says https://t.co/5HxmUk8Woj

It’s esp frustrating when you’re food shopping with children, as you feel you’re putting them at risk in a way you’re not doing with yourself (since they don’t wear masks).

Quoted @GranadaReports

Supermarkets including Tesco have failed to make stores "Covid-safe" by not enforcing the use of masks, Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham has said. Mr Burnham wants local government to have powers to close stores which are not implementing measures. https://t.co/deG4oZjSHR

Glad a politician has spoken out on this. Was very disappointed to find over half the customers at my busy local mini @Tesco were not wearing masks & were still allowed in. Only I, 1yo + 7yo maintained a 2m distance. It’s government mandated, so please have staff enforce it! https://t.co/1yAM0pv5j8

Comic Relief says it has ended the era of ‘white saviours’. Lenny Henry says that ‘African people want to tell their own stories’. I just hope white support and generosity doesn’t end too.

Some of the replies to this are dispiriting: https://t.co/x8BaOQ748C

Religion, faith & belief should be strong enough to be withstand criticism & satire. There are other serious harms that are happening against Muslims and none of these states - inc. muslim diaspora - are doing anything substantive to improve the lives of Muslims globally.

Rohingya are displaced. Uighurs are interned in camps. Muslim heads of states - and communities - would do better to look inwards and improve the way they treat their own Muslim citizens, advocate for other Muslims, and set the standard for western states to follow.

Quoted @ImranKhanPTI

My letter to leaders of Muslim states to act collectively to counter the growing Islamophobia in non-Muslim states esp Western states causing increasing concern amongst Muslims the world over. https://t.co/OFuaKGu2c1

There is significant repression of & violence against Christian citizens of Pakistan, as well as women, girls & children. Saudi Arabia is starving & killing Muslims in Yemen. Sri Lanka is oppressing Muslims. India is oppressing Muslims in the biggest exercise of statelessness. https://t.co/cPdkfzFoXB

(It wasn’t because he’s a snowflake. Spoiler: the incident led to cascading levels of overt public racism towards indigenous people. It marked a really ugly turning point - one of many - in Australia’s history, public consciousness & its treatment of Indigenous people).

Saw this doco being raved about in Australia & loved it when it aired on the BBC. The story of Indigenous footballer Adam Goodes + his retirement from the sport after a teen spectator yelled racist slurs at a match. The Australian Dream: https://t.co/9X7fBA8XM6 via @bbciplayer

Ecstatic to finally see British East Asians, their lives and their stories on British TV. The BBC have a 3-part documentary series called ‘Being British East Asian: Sex, Beauty & Bodies’ https://t.co/UN4WZGHmrI via @bbciplayer

It’s easier for a white person to vote from space than for an African American or Latino to vote in their home zip code in the United States. https://t.co/8u0q776vmb

Putting it another way, we only needed to spend less than £13m rather than the £708m we have spent. And if that's not odd, look at who we've spent that £708m with...

But let's be generous to Government and take the highest of those three prices, £24.28. At that unit price, £708m buys you just over 29m coveralls. Which is quite a lot more than the 533,000 we've used.

Well, it's rather difficult to tell. If you add together the eleven biggest contracts for coveralls - and I'll return to these below - you can see we've spent a total of £708m on them. But Government has done a very careful job of redacting the per unit price.

Experimental data shows that during the pandemic we have used 533,000 coveralls using the emergency procurement procedure that bypasses all normal governance controls. But how many have we purchased? https://t.co/x1i0A9kFZL https://t.co/YsBicZujxm

We need to talk about isolation suits - also known as "coveralls". THREAD

Is having someone come over to your home with windows opens really any different to being stuck on a bus or tube with 15 other people for an hour?
