Do we still do the “📣 Personal News! 📣” thing? Anyway, here’s some personal news: so because I’m a masochist, I’m writing another book 💃
"In this book, Hadley will tell the story of her illness and recovery, how it felt to spiral downwards, slowly then quickly, becoming suddenly unreachable to those who loved her most", @4thEstateBooks bags @HadleyFreeman's memoir. More here: bit.ly/30RZ0E4

Oh Andre Leon Talley - this is such sad news. Interviewing him was one of the joys of my career. No one was like Andre, lived like Andre or gave quotes like Andre: “I scorched the earth with my talent and I let my light shine” theguardian.com/fashion/2020…

Boris, there’s a text on your phone from a woman “I don’t know her, it was a wrong number” She says you met up at her place “It was to discuss work” She says she loves you “Just a casual term of endearment” She sent a photo of you two shagging “I refer this matter to Sue Grey”

I have never seen anything more British than MPs solemnly harrumphing that, absolutely, it's wrong to mention the royal family in the House of Commons

We stayed in touch afterwards and it was always exciting to see his name in my inbox. Certainly no one wrote emails like Andre. He was generous, self-mocking and utterly delightful. I adored him and enthused in his word tapestry

The state of this from Crispin Blunt MP. How *dare* a women - shock, horror! - ignore his “counsel” to shut up and continue to participate in a contentious public debate?! Great reporting from @jo_bartosch unherd.com/2022/01/inside-th…

Boris Johnson saying no one told him the Downing Street gathering was against the rules is a new level of dissociation, almost like he’s spent two years watching someone else be prime minister and is now scratching his head about the decisions they’ve taken.

Wonderfully written by @Dannythefink. It seems extremely unlikely that we'll ever know for sure who betrayed the Frank family. But investigations like this are valuable because they emphasise that wartime narratives were sometimes grey and not just simple black and white
.@Dannythefink reflects on the tragedy of the Frank family as a new book, published this week, delves into the riddle of who revealed their hiding place to the Nazis thetimes.co.uk/article/searc…

Fucking right on, Trevor Phillips *salutes*
Trevor Phillips shares his experience during lockdown, when one of his daughters was very ill. She died not long after the funeral of Prince Philip, when it is alleged that those working for the govt met despite COVID rules. #Phillips trib.al/mp2Z2d3
