A lot of US Republicans who were, until a few hours ago, complaining that President Biden was not fit to hold office for another four years seem pretty miffed that he not only agrees with them but has also bowed out of the contest.

RT by @AlexKane221b: My fellow Democrats, I have decided not to accept the nomination and to focus all my energies on my duties as President for the remainder of my term. My very first decision as the party nominee in 2020 was to pick Kamala Harris as my Vice President. And it’s been the best decision I’ve made. Today I want to offer my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year. Democrats — it’s time to come together and beat Trump. Let’s do this.

Three for Sunday. Two enjoyable quirks and a British sci/fi classic Yesterday: 10.30pm BBC1. I’ve never liked the Beatles but Boyle has fun with this Pit: 10.50pm Legend Xtra. Still works Last: 11.50pm BBC2. A road trip involving a funeral. Very impressive directorial debut

She’s right about ‘cranks’—although they’re not all centrist. Let’s be honest, how cranky is someone who wins as a Conservative on July 4 and then hints at jumping to Reform on July 20? Did she only summon the courage of her convictions when she realised she wouldn’t be leader?

I started the film recommendations during Covid (as a guide for people who had more time to watch films) and a lot of people still seem to value it. And I’m still toying with the idea for monthly screenings on a big screen for some of the classics across all genres.

Another two crackers for another wet Saturday How: 3pm BBC2. One of the greatest westerns, as well as one of cinema’s best ‘epics’. Day: 6pm Great Action channel. I was thinking about this when I heard about Trump. 50 years on and it remains one of the best.

Seven years ago today. Time really does fly—and it has been a fabulous time, too. I used to think I never wanted children and now I can’t imagine life without them (even if they constantly disturb my writing process, interrupt occasional interviews and dismiss my brilliant puns).

I presume there’ll be a proper run of his films fairly soon, but this is a great wet-the-appetite reminder of how much fun the wonderful Sutherland could be on a film set. It’s mostly nonsense, but hugely enjoyable nonsense. On tonight-Thursday-at 8pm on BBC4

I didn’t know there was a Ukelele band (is that the right description) in Belfast. Can’t play or sing a note of anything but I’ve always liked the ukelele. I’ve a vague memory of my Dad telling me his dad and granddad played them.

Thank you. When I joined Twitter 12 years ago I decided mine wouldn’t be a ‘shouty’ place. It is a vehicle for my columns/commentary, and also a place I hope is welcoming to all because I value insights and inputs. We can always learn from others if civility is key to exchange

Two very good political films if you’re stuck inside this afternoon, both on Film4 Animal: 1.05pm First full-length British animation and it tells the story very well King’s: 4.40pm Superb version of a superb book. Of its time—but still relevant (as is Animal Farm)

I like this. The plot seems terribly old-fashioned now, but that’s because so many have ‘borrowed’ it down the years. Not my favourite Christie, but pretty darn close. On tonight-Wednesday-at 10.10pm on @TalkingPicsTV (still my favourite film channel)

I agree. Support for political/electoral unionism isn’t the entirety of the pro-Union base (but the two need to start understanding each other much better). And there is a section of nationalism which banks everything on ‘inevitability’.
