Tesla CEO claims he should be allowed to exit $44b Twitter takeover deal following whistleblower’s claim of security flaws

Elon Musk has accused Twitter of fraud, claiming they concealed serious data security flaws.

On Thursday, the billionaire’s legal team publicly released updated court filings.

According to the amended court filing, Musk says these new updates should allow him to put an end to his $44 billion deal to buy the company.

Prior to this update, Musk argued that the reason for him wishing to pull out if the takeover deal was due to the misrepresented number of spam accounts on Twitter.

Twitter on the other hand argued Musk used bots as a scapegoat to get out of the deal after a market decline.

Eurostar boss says peak trains are empty because of post-Brexit passport delays

You can perhaps understand why British residents are becoming increasingly frustrated by Brexit.

During peak hour in London, Eurostar trains are running across the Channel with hundreds of empty places.

Around 350 of 900 seats are normally left unsold on the first services between London, Paris and Brussels despite “huge demand”.
