The film clip the RNLI put out yesterday is very powerful
at 08:06 29 Jul 2021

Picking a culture war fight with brave volunteers who save lives is going to be about as a successful as the one with a very likeable England football team.

Barney Ronay on sport and pressure is well worth reading today
at 08:43 28 Jul 2021

The pertinent part is that social media makes it increasingly difficult for people in the public eye to switch off, something that the last 18 months of restrictions has probably made worse:

A bit careless from England, Roy especially when cruising, but some excellent bowling from Pakistan.

David Conn's piece on the government's failing culture war is good
at 07:48 16 Jul 2021

It is failing because it's so laughable, and the Labour leader is Keir Starmer not Jeremey Corbyn now, but it is still doing an awful lot of damage to the country.

Global Britain - part 562
at 18:50 13 Jul 2021

Despite a sizeable Tory rebellion the UK has decided to make savings from the world's poor in the face of a global pandemic. A larger rebellion headed off by promises of ministerial jobs from Johnson which, astonishingly, MPs believed.

Andrew Mitchell can explain better than I can why this is a bad thing:



But, also, things like international aid boost the country's prestige and image internationally, far more so than a (non-)royal yacht.

Look, this was never going to be an easy win
at 22:00 11 Jul 2021

At least we have extra time, balance of play that half we might be slightly fortunate with that.

Looked a penalty on Sterling though, knee in back of the leg. Got the balance on the decision mid-week, not tonight. It happens.

It's been alright so far
at 20:57 11 Jul 2021

Cracking goal at the end of a superb move, more cagey since and certainly isn't over nor even close.

England are playing very well but Italy have nearly got through on a couple of occasions. We can't afford a 10-15 minute spell of being out of the game against them like against Germany or Denmark.

Another goal would definitely help....
