"We want to thank everyone who is not indifferent to us. We could not even imagine that so many people would help us in such a difficult moment. Thank you very much, we will never forget this."
They have been talking to their local military who are getting uneasy about a possible Russian attempt to take the city. Having seen the way that civilians get treated, they are looking to relocate very soon, now that they have funds to enable this.
Met police announced that they were going to commence an investigation into parties and illegal gatherings in 10 Downing St on 25th Jan
And the publication of the full report by Sue Gray has to wait for the Met investigation to conclude
It has taken the Met more than a fortnight to announce that they will be sending questionnaires to the suspects in No 10, hopefully commencing next week. The recipients will have a full week to confer and polish their responses, a less than ideal way to get to the truth of the matter
16 bloody days to get this far, with a minimum of a further 14 days before the evidence is gathered and then however long to process and review said data
I think this is utterly unacceptable, the Met have known about these parties for an age, they decline to act on the information until the very last possible moment before the Gray report and then take more than a fortnight to even think about contacting the possible offenders
I rather hoped that the suspects would have been interviewed under caution within a couple of days of the announcement of the Met investigation, bearing in mind that this is a very high profile case with enormous public interest. The suspects should have had no chance to confer and work on their stories together, let alone a week to finesse their answers
This Met investigation is proceeding at the pace of an arthritic snail with gout and no one seems overly fussed by it's glacial rate of progress
All aboard for BBQ at my estate in glorious North Gloucestershire
Weather forecast looks fair, camping area looks a picture and the Staff have started the preparations for the event, slaughtering the fatted lentils and making the dressing for the Quinoa. ( Animal products also available)
Warm welcome to all, cold drinks, hot food and wonderful conversation about all things ITFC and beyond
