This is true - Labour is beginning to split like an amoeba dividing before our eyes. https://twitter.com/Peston/status/1097625739447468033
Love how the news has union leaders condemning MPs exiting the Brexit-enabling Corbyn cult, soon followed by union leaders condemning Honda leaving Swindon. Simon Jack really good (as usual) on this: UK-Japan relationship of the past 30 years is broken.
Also this podcast interviewing the screenwriter for “arrival” is 👌🏼 https://podtail.com/en/podcast/the-q-a-with-jeff-goldsmith/arrival-q-a/
I’m reading “story of your life” upon which the movie “Arrival” was based - reminds me of how much I enjoyed that film! Also cool to see the small changes they made in writing the book for the big screen https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Story_of_Your_Life
 
the whole of that book of short stories is amazing. I loved the superintelligence one.

Highly recommend @Josh_H work showing how House of Commons has become a four-party system. (Served @theoverspill readers well today.). Worth a follow for those into graphics visuals (ahem @SophieWarnes ). https://twitter.com/Josh_H/status/1096401209223774208
