Top work from the DCMS today
at 13:42 17 Apr 2019

In announcing that Cameron's delayed - and no doubt very effective - porn block will start in July managed to do this:

"Unfortunately for the governmentโ€™s attempts to calm fears on the privacy issue, the news was announced by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport in an email that exposed the contact details of almost 300 recipients. DCMS was also responsible for implementing the new GDPR laws in the UK, which mandate large financial penalties for breaches that expose personal data."

Just a reminder that today is the 30th anniversary of Hillsborough

Please take a moment to remember that 96 people went to watch a football match, something most of us do many times a year.

The Turnstile Blues interview with Max from Blue Action is online now
at 10:55 15 Apr 2019

They have definitely been one highlight of a very disappointing season:

Although, we did think that Max's response to being asked about calling Delia Smith a whore merited a further response:

So, who else is going to Brentford today then?

Another chance to enjoy terracing at this level and some good pubs in the vicinity plus it can't be a more miserable experience than the previous two trips to Griffin Park.

John Harris has gone and talked to people in Tory constituencies

It's worth reading, a lot reads across to Ipswich as well I think, and doesn't say much for the state of the nation after nine years of Tory rule:

Peter Oborne on the state of Brexit is something everyone interested should read
at 17:55 7 Apr 2019

He sets out exactly why leaving at the moment is deeply problematic for the UK. He remains a Brexiter at heart but sees enormous economic damage to the entire UK is the only feasible result from where we are now.

Yes, it doesn't really matter but Saturday evenings are a lot better after a win.

Be nice to get another one or two so it's not an alien concept for next season.

Not sure on the providence of the data but this is a Times journalist so I presume the full detail is in the paper.



I know it's nothing surprising but it should still be pointed out.

Marina Hyde's description of Mark Francois here is apt

"Mark Francois is the Westminster equivalent of one of those zoo chimps, probably driven mad by confinement, who furiously masturbate in front of tourists."
