Dive In


The visible stonework, wooden door, and the stainless-steel door hinges and coat hook on the back of that door... all looked quite familiar. It appeared that the camera was mounted on the ledge or ridge on the wall just above the back of the toilet.

That’s what an opposition party leader in Canada said—while calling out a member of the ruling Liberal party—who was caught attending a parliamentary debate… from a toilet stall! Shafqat Ali has apologised and promised to “never to repeat this error.” Well, we guess it is still better than watching porn in the Parliament—which seems to be a global affliction these days (see: Karnataka, the UK).


Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team looks at why the South loves to hate on Hindi—and why India is so crap at meeting the needs of the differently abled. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
