This is a bit of a quandary isn't it?

Do we go for natural fibre that degrades pretty quickly and then you have to retie up all your roses, or artificial fibre that lasts longer but isn't sustainable. i can see why there's so much discussion about it.

er, stop Labour’s mishandling of the economy and oversight of the cost of living crisis, whilst also supporting workers who are seeing real wages falling (I wonder if that’s linked to the cost of living crisis 🤔).



Not a bloody clue have they? No ideas other than constantly campaigning and inventing conflict.

World Cup for the rich
at 20:27 9 Jun 2022

5% ticket share for fans of each team. 90% of tickets going to corporate ***** and VIPs. So Wales have an allocation of 2,000(ish) tickets, for example. For the first WC finals they’ve been to since 1958. Anyone know what England have got and anyone trying to go?

How many itinerant workers died for this again? Thousands wasn’t it? It all seems utterly obscene, utterly corrupt and should have been cancelled as soon as the FIFA top dogs got pulled up for corruption.

Labour's (non) position on Europe
at 12:35 8 Jun 2022

Good grief, this is a painful watch from Cooper. A complete reticence to acknowledge a problem, let alone address it. The responses wouldn't sound out of place coming from an ERG Tory.

The elephant in the room isn't getting any smaller is it? At some point Labour have got to decide what they stand for. For too long on this issue (under Corbyn & Starmer), they've tried to hedge their bets on Europe and I wonder how much support they've lost as a result. Surely it must be getting to the point where Brexit is safer ground - polls show <20% think it's going well and even the majority of Tory and leave voters don't think it's going well.

Pizza ovens
at 23:07 26 May 2022

They seem to be all the rage for lefty bumfest types with more money than sense. Are the commercial options worth it? I keep getting spammed ads from Ooni (pic below), but you’re looking at ~£500 for a 16” multi fuel oven. Cooking in a couple of minutes sounds good, but otherwise Domino’s sounds a better bet! Anyone built their own, any hints, tips, etc?

Have we done the Grenfell latest yet?
at 20:55 18 May 2022

Government promised to enact the recommendations of the independent enquiry, but have now rolled back on the recommendation that there should be bespoke evacuation plans for disabled residents. Nearly half the disabled residents of Grenfell lost their lives.

Reasons cited include: “the Home Office said it has decided it is not proportionate or practical to introduce the plan, citing problems such as the costs to landlords.”

I know a lot of people are fed up with Govt bashing and it all gets lost in the noise, but just think about this for a second. Think about what it says about their attitude towards the vulnerable and who they’re more interested in keeping happy.

Not an invitation.

Good Jennings cartoon in the Gurniad about Zahawi’s refusal to look at legislating against physical abuse of children. Why would he refuse to go there? Scotland and Wales have both outlawed physical punishment. Seems a no brainer to me.

It’s good football at most levels, never mind L1. Of course we have to score more, but the foundations are obviously there. It’s far more entertaining that watch our efforts in recent years to string 3 passes together.

Holiday plans this year?
at 20:18 6 Apr 2022

What are people up to?

After the last couple of years of not doing much or staying local(ish), we’re taking the plunge and planning a week in the Picos de Europa in northern Spain and then a week with the Mrs’ sister and family at a villa in the French Pyrenees. I’m not sure how that’s all going to work out with Covid, but we’re driving down to avoid public transport and people. Can’t wait tbh, it’s been too long.

Otherwise it’s North Wales for Easter and half term as we’ve still got to clear out my dad’s place. Not a pleasant job but got to be done, so we’re going to use it as a base while we’ve got it. The one benefit of Covid is it’s reminded us that you don’t have to travel far. We had a cracking holiday in N Wales last summer.

Cost of living survival kit

90 ideas to save a few bob, collated by Martin Lewis' team. Some of these tips may help people stretch their cash a bit further as the cost of living crisis bites.

It's quite amazing what this guy does - I often use his guides to pick products or change suppliers.

We’re all in it together

Driving home tonight I heard on the radio that 4 Welsh AMS had been exonerated of having alcohol in a tea room when Wales had an alcohol ban at the height of the wave before Xmas. Apparently their behaviour might not have been according to the spirit of the law, but they were cleared of any wrong-doing.

The company who provided the drinks were fined for breaking the law.

Where do you even go with that? I haven’t mentioned the party(ies) involved as it’s irrelevant (and they didn’t mention it on the news item so I don’t know!).

Where did it all go wrong?

Talking of covers, life these days has been reduced to watching Bridgerton and trying to work out the covers. FFS, I’m sure I used to have more fun than this .

Anyway, here was tonight’s conundrum - took me a while, but once they hit the chorus it’s easy. Mrs Swanners didn’t have a clue, so I’m feeling stupidly smug. Apparent Bridgerton covers are a thing 🤷‍♂️ (Someone shoot me).
