Yes, that kind of thing is telling. A total lack of empathy or understanding of the world is no barrier to the higher offices of state - indeed, even being sacked as Patel and Williamson were isn't.

At some point the electoral dividend of endless culture war bullsh1t will reduce considerably but it's far too tempting for this lot to just fall back on it.

The regular, quarterly I think, whole company events are far better WFH. I can mess around on the internet or wander round the flat whilst being bored rather than having to sit still and behave. Don't get the free breakfast this way though.

I think we're heading towards a 3 days in 2 WFH split as well, that despite one senior manager being very keen to see a full return to the office. Within that the expectation would be that there are core days for the wider team I work in (20 or so in London) and remote the rest of the time, we're already used to dealing with a Singapore office so that provides enough flexibility for most people I think whilst retaining plenty of overlap with other people.

This is energy trading, BP set the benchmark a few months back with a clear flexible option so we, and others, will follow that. I suspect BP are big enough to see big savings in office space by that approach but I don't see that having as great an impact for smaller entities.

There's an FT piece on Bezos's Blue Origin rocket here:

Paywalled I'm afraid but sharing for anyone who can read it. Still more hype than substance compared to Musk at the moment but the direction is the same.

In other space news, I see Nasa has extended the mission profile of the Mars helicopter as the trials have proved so successful.

WARD RELEASED. (n/t)
at 16:16 5 May 2021

I don't think anyone (maybe PL?) expected us to have Chambers as the other full back, the two of them were good in an attacking team until the team wasn't. It really was notable that SW was fit again, at Peterborough he looked like he was running in slow motion.

Judge I still think did ok overall, just that, as you suggest, he was brought in to have a much greater impact and only did that in the first few weeks back in Spring 2019.

Ward started the season well, came back from injury too soon and then got covid. It's perhaps not surprising that his impact has been so limited.

He was playing fairly well in his last few matches though, nowhere near enough to be worth keeping but clearly he was properly fit again,.

14 more matches than Villa over the run in. Shame we didn't lose that cup tie really.

Aside from everything else, already mentioned, I saw this yesterday (thread) which is worth reading. This is probably a factor too:





One other thing, the media obsess about the constituencies where electoral preferences have shifted structurally against Labour but ignore those where the same has happened against the Tories. It's still seeing national politics through a very specific filter.

It is very good, both on the immediate state of the team but also the wider state of the club. I think too often fans only judge the club on what they can see on the pitch but it has been clear for a long time that ME ran too much down behind the scenes which has had a detrimental impact on the whole club - it's as much a reason why we are facing a third season in the third division as Lambert.

I like Kieron's obvious enthusiasm and love for the club, I hope he can stay involved with the first team in a meaningful way. Not sure I want him to tie himself to Cook though, KD could be at the club a lot longer.

Yes, definitely. That was not the same as Rochdale away or MK Dons at home

A bit better second half, two early balls put us in good positions.

Think it's telling that Cook kept the same team on for 90 minutes, it was clearly more like what he wants. Just need to make far better use of the ball more consistently.

Yes, Atkins mentioned bravery on the ball a couple of times. That cautiousness has been conditioned into these players and it takes time to change that.

Add a bit of confidence and familiarity to this approach, plus a few new players, and it looks a lot better.

He needs to improve his final ball though, really good tonight up until that point and then it gets a bit wayward.

We're a bit off in our decision making, both in over-playing from the back and taking too long in attacking positions, but much more sense of a gameplay than in lots of recent games. Shrewsbury are a typical Cotteril team, cynical out of possession but some good players - Norburn & Vela - and they break quickly.
