Election Leaflets
at 19:15 11 Nov 2019

Only Lib-dem and Greens have come through my door.
I haven't seen the Tories or Labour leafets but here's an interesting observation from Jim Pickard of the FT.

Election leaflet stats so far:

- Out of 865 Labour leaflets & newsletters only 62 feature Corbyn’s picture. (JC by contrast features on 322 out of 760 Tory leaflets).

The Tories fear of Corbyn getting into no 10 is rather obssessive methinks.

Doing the Recycle
at 10:42 4 Nov 2019

this morning at 7am and I happened upon the next door neighbour who was doing the same. I glanced at his black bin that contains the glass and it was chocker-block full of whiskey/vodka/wine bottles.
"Nice party?" I enquired, trying to engage in some smalltalk.
"Thats 6 weeks worth - I only put it out when it's full"
I smiled.
"I'm not a piss-head"
"How's the wife?" changing the subject.
"Neither is she"
Sheesh - some people really are grouchy in the morning (especially if they've had a few the night before).

The Fracking Hell
at 01:05 2 Nov 2019

is over. The government have accepted the science and banned fracking - sort of. The door is still open if the Fracking companies can come up with the science that says its safe and won't cause earth tremors but that is unlikely to happen.

Bulgaria to play behind closed doors
at 18:41 29 Oct 2019

Apologies for an unfashionable football thread (sic).

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50212951

I think that's fair and the Bulgarian FA probably saw that coming.
They were already being penalised for racist behaviour in a previous game when they played England.
If Bulgaria have such a problem with furriners why on earth are they about to join the Schengen area.

And in other news....
at 13:41 10 Oct 2019

2 things caught my eye.
1. Irish MP Joan Collins (no really) has told the Irish parliament "Yous just really don't give a f***". She's apologised for her language but I think she got her point across.
2. Greta Thunberg accused of "never working a day in her life". This from a Brexiter who obviously supports child labour.

Johnsons speech to conference
at 21:56 2 Oct 2019

Part of his speech included this.

"But remember, it was only a few years ago when people were saying that solar power would never work in cloudy old Britain and that wind turbines wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding."

Who would say such a thing?
That would be in an article written by Johnson in July 2013.
