“You can claim your air passenger duty back from the airline if you miss your flight but it's probably not worth the bother. All airlines are obligated to issue this refund, but most also charge a fee which costs more than the refund you’ll receive.”

#MickMulvaney on Twitter: “Cheney’s closing is stunning: they think they have evidence of witness tampering and obstruction of justice. There is an old maxim: it’s never the crime, it’s always the coverup. Things went very badly for the former President today. My guess is that it will get worse from here” / Twitter

A rat abandoning the sinking ship?

Let's talk a little about the hot subject of the week: #Twitter.

It's obvious why Elon Musk wants to buy it -- he's a raging attention vampire who wants to install himself as Twitter's permanent Main Character.

But it takes two to tango. You can't buy a company unless the people who own it are willing to sell it to you.

So why are Twitter's current owners willing to sell? Let's pop the hood on the company's financials and try to find out. (🧵)

What I don’t get about the #US is that you have elections for posts like police commissioners (we don’t in the UK) but at the top of it all you have an unelected and therefore unaccountable cabal of only nine individuals who never have to report to any authority and are there until they die. I thought that only happened in totalitarian states like the Soviet Union or China.
