Forty five days. Just over six weeks in office and she resigned as Prime Minister. Political watchers say this is simply a sign that British democracy is working. Food for thought. And some humour too.

Truss's error was honesty, she dared to articulate what Brexit really means for the ideologues that pushed it. Johnson firm grasp of the UK’s toff-pleb relationship, and obvs his basic chicanery, means he will never do such a thing #Truss #BorisJohnson

A gentle reminder of the critical relevance of verified news and journalists. And some potentially dangerous news on Elon Musk’s plan to cut Twitter’s headcount down. Connect the dots.

SCOOP: Elon Musk told investors he planned to cut 75% of Twitter’s workforce, gutting to a skeleton staff of 2,000. Also, Peter Thiel and Reid Hoffman passed on the Twitter deal. Via me @faizsays @GerritD @jeremybmerrill https://t.co/epoiv3pArV

The festival is here. Almost. A long weekend too. And the debates around fireworks are as fiery as ever. But there is enough goodness in the air to make up for all the negativity.

The mercurial West Indies team has lost its magic. Along with their exit from the World Cup a bit of charm of the game has gone. The first big surprise. There must be many more in store.

You know T20 format is increasing its foothold in teams when former champions/big teams are not qualifying for World Cups . It only used to happen in Football. Give these teams more exposure and matches and we might see 15-16 good T20 teams in future.#ICCT20WorldCup

As we usher in the festival of lights, the women and people of Iran are still waging a war on the ruling establishment of the country. If there was a fight against the odds, this defines it. Let us spare a moment to pray for peace across the world. Let there be light.
Renaming the street of the Iranian Embassy to ‘Mahsa Amini Street’ would be a fitting way to memorialise the young woman who has inspired so many, in Iran and across the world.

I paid a special visit to the Iranian consulate to send a message to the Iranian regime. 😏 The whole world has seen the true colors of this evil regime. We stand with the people of #Iran in their pursuit of regime change. #Mahsa_Amini#مهسا_امینی #OpIran #MahsaAmini pic.twitter.com/5HdyjZyhF4
