By far the most accurate:
Hi @jk_rowling. We're both Wyedean School survivors and I'll forgive you for not coming to open our library if you give this thread a like. x

P.s. Andy Voyce - who claims he is Dudley Dursley and went to school with you - says hi
Some contenders that didn’t make the cut:
Problematic Hungarian Hagrid
I guess we need a Harry Potter

Despite him being the worst character

Here’s me aged 11, it’ll have to do

Absolute slap in the face to @Eurostar as Boris Johnson heads to Brussels by plane
*and the climate, obvz

Reminder that Eurostar is in trouble. Massively scaled back services because of travel restrictions and pure lack of demand. It's on the ropes. Doubt Boris cares
'Oh the 8 o'clock train was too early for him, wah'
Get stuffed

🌱 Latest raft of #EUCO conclusions include the 55% emissions target. LOADS of language on member states being at different starting points, having the exclusive right to decide on energy mixes and preserving competitiveness
If there's a budget compromise, there will be a climate deal. (neck on block time). There was just about enough for a deal in October and enough massaging has been done now for it to get over the line if the MFF/RoL are sorted
ETS expansion, carbon border tax and a green finance bond standard also get a look-in. These are in-depth conclusions, not just a "the Council agrees to 55%."
Evidence tat it's going/gone mainstream (imho)

#EUCO preparation list:

- Look up 'fudge' in the Hungarian and Polish dictionaries;
- Decide whether this is a red wine or hard spirits occasion;
- Download plenty of pictures of leaders for no particular reason, mind your own business 👀
*it's 'koholmány' and 'banialuki' apparently
You're a multilingual lot.
1) are those two translations good?
2) any decent words for 'crap compromise' that also has a culinary double-meaning in your languages?

🚂 Big night-train news. New services linking Vienna, Zurich, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Barcelona and more due to start launching in late 2021. More details on @EURACTIV euractiv.com/section/railwa…
FAO of downcast Brits: "The UK will be linked to the network at Brussels and Paris by the cross-Channel Eurostar - should it survive a period of immense uncertainty triggered by the pandemic and Brexit - as trains need to be specially designed to run through the undersea tunnel."

So with China aiming for carbon-neutrality by 2060, there’s a number of things to unpack here 1./ euractiv.com/section/energy…
It vindicates EU policy decisions on its own 2050 net-zero pledge. Back in 2018, the Commission was torn between 80%-90% emission cuts and going all in on net-zero euractiv.com/section/climat…
More progressive officials won that battle, arguing that the likes of China, India would be unlikely to be spurred into action by a policy that closely resembled business as usual
