What’s the best from here? We can’t have beaten a national leader, surely (even if it is only Drakeford).
|Watching Bart tonight|
at 18:31 30 Jun 2020
He's having a mare. Butterfingers all game and it looks like he just scored an own goal (rebound off the bar from a free kick).
|Anyone following Johnson's briefing?|
at 17:56 23 Jun 2020
Load of meaningless waffle from what I can see.
Whitty and Valance are back though, and adding a welcome cautionary note to Johnson's jingoism. Johnson also seems to have painted himself into a corner wanting people to both go out and interact, whilst simultaneously not. He's aiming for the positive and bullish, but it's not landing very well for me.
I don't think we'll miss these.

I was going to make this about neighbours, as that’s my example. But I’m guessing (hoping!) I’m not alone and people are harbouring all sorts of pointless grievances.
Mine: how ridiculously tidy most of the neighbours gardens are, making me feel like a right slob (and ours isn’t bad, just a few weeds). We’re in comfortable suburbia, surrounded by retirees with new BMWs or small Toyotas on the drive and lawns they seem to cut with scissors. All paint work gets a freshen up each year and even their tubs and hanging baskets are colour coordinated with house colour/cars, you name it. They’ve had a non-stop stream of gardeners and various workmen all through lockdown.
Drives me up the wall.

I'm enjoying these. Here's Matt Hancock on the 'diversity of thought'. I hadn't seen the original interview - it's quite an incredible attempt at a defence, almost Barnard Castle-esque.

From commie remoaner twitter, but probably the best one I've seen. Enjoy. Apologies for the swearing on a family site, but there's more in the tweet than in the song.
|The Government is getting this wrong pt 20,725 and twelvty thousands|
at 18:05 19 May 2020
For anyone following the latest update of the Govt's response to Covid-19:
I guess if you come out swinging blaming the scientists, like Suffolk's own Theresa Coffee did this morning, you're going to get a bit of kick back...
(Angela McClean is Chief Scientific Adviser for the MoD. These daily updates are fascinating, but sadly only for getting an idea of the politics going on rather than anything useful for keeping us safe).
|Removing the need for quarantine with "air bridges'|
at 16:28 19 May 2020
There's a proposal to spare visitors from countries with low Covid infections from having to follow the proposed quarantine measures.
What am I missing here? The country specifically mentioned who might be up for this is America - what? And presumably this would be mutual, so why would anyone else open their borders to us when we're up there with America as the biggest hit countries (so far)?
|Anyone still washing their post or shopping|
at 18:10 13 May 2020
more than themselves?
When will this end? Everything that comes into our place gets washed down straight away with hot soapy water. Took at least an hour to do our last big shop. Madness.

So we know Gav's been furloughed and I hope he's doing well, keeping safe and enjoying the down time.
But you'd think he'd have taken the chance to come on here as one of us normal plebs, wade into a few political debates and generally make Phil's life hell, wouldn't you? I probably would
|Vodka can't go off, can it?|
at 19:30 3 May 2020
Just found this in the cupboard. No idea where it came from or when (but it's been there a while). It's got a 06/08/18 date stamp on it. Bound to be alright isn't it? Desperate times and all that.
