Some Brexit realities slowly starting to sink in then
at 14:49 9 Jul 2020

I don't know if people have been following the last couple of days events around the NI/GB border, but it doesn't make for reassuring reading.

We've gone from the baseless claims of Boris last year:
'No checks on goods from NI to UK, says PM'
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-50430815

To this, released today:
'Up to £25m to help firms prepare for 'Irish Sea border''
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-53346971

It's even dawned on Liz Truss that things aren't going too well.
'Leaked Liz Truss letter warns that Boris Johnson's Brexit border plans risk smuggling, legal challenge, and global reputational damage'

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.

Petty annoyances
at 18:03 21 Jun 2020

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.

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.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52723101

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)?

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

Interesting to read, so no complaints here. Although a minor point; shouldn’t the picks be based on positions players normally played in? I may be self wooshing here, but regarding Johno’s picks, wasn’t Treacle a left back for us, Venus a CB, Magic a box-to-box MF not DF and Scowie not an AMC?
