As the fireworks mirrored the colours of the EU flag, London's New Year's Eve display had a special message for Europe: "London is open". pic.twitter.com/K7VUekQGtK

Brexiters: “You Remainers are such snowflakes!”
Also Brexiters: “SADIQ KHAN MADE AN EU FLAG OUT OF FIREWORKS AND I’M ABSOLUTELY FUCKING FURIOUS!!” https://t.co/tZWX73cZnI

I’m outraged that @SadiqKhan did this last night in front of the world! How dare he, who does he think he is!!!
Sorry ‘Sadiq’ but Brexit is happening & there’s no amount of EU inspired fireworks that will stop it! BREXIT MEANS BREXIT! pic.twitter.com/92Vbb1rXtR

Jerry Falwell Jr. claims “anything" Trump does is “going to be what’s best for this country” and he “can’t imagine him doing anything that’s not good for the country.”
Who in their right mind thinks *any human being* is always right? Does Falwell believe Trump is Christ reborn? https://t.co/6udZ9G2ber

A good piece on the true nature of the Christian right. I'd just add that many of us have known for years that morality was never the issue; it was always about white patriarchy 1/ https://t.co/Ardu21wLK6

The Trump presidency is really just a political pyramid scheme. Those riding the wave spin false tales of success and achievement. But when they cash out or watch it all crash down (whichever comes first), they act like the innocent victims of a con artist who led them astray. https://t.co/02FDF6fXV9

Analysis: A central question remains unanswered: What did FBI officials know in the summer of 2016 that dissuaded them from telling Donald Trump they were investigating his top aides? https://t.co/breEqYWkYt

Paul Whelan will be traded for Butina, don't you think? Him being a Trump supporter just makes him even less of a spy against Russia and more of a tool for both Trump and Putin to get what they want from the US, Butina. https://t.co/eYtyBUdTZU

Thoughtful piece by @martinwolf_ on why China’s continued eco rise not to be assumed. Slowing would raise issues for Party legitimacy, internal stability and possibly raise temptation to satisfy public frustration w more assertive foreign policy. https://t.co/DnxTsjZfZ6

13 hours in, so far this is NOTHING like Blade Runner.

Ahem. Blade Runner takes place in *November* of 2019. Cool your jets, everybody. We have a full eleven months to develop replicants and flying cars and stuff.
