|What are Turkey playing at?|

Sweden, perhaps the most inoffensive, measured and reasonable nation which has ever existed, a "hatchery for terrorists"?
Time Putin apologists and authoritarian regime based Turkey got the boot from Nato, if that is necessary to get Finland and Sweden in.

Why should russia play at neutral venues? Remove them from all competitions.

On my local village FB group today someone posted "Anyone had a black guy in a high vis jacket knock on their door today?"
Now, there have been some burglaries and dodgy callers recently so I understand immediately why information is being shared about an unusual caller. I equally understand the discomfort that many immediately feel on reading a description like that.
The reply was "Just a man in high vis would have done." To which the OP replied "I was being descriptive. If it was a white guy I would haev said white" and has now had 3 uppies.
I don't believe for a second that she would have said "white". Equally though, it is a useful descriptive, as I am aware of only one black family in the village and not being a white person in this particular village is therefore a very obvious descriptor.

At a corner, we need to see what is going on in the box. Not a shot of the taker, suddenly sweeping out when its too late to see whats happening.

Today's headline, adn the interpretation of it by most (including on here) is not the right one though.
He was clearly not saying "I didnt know because noone told me" when he denied that anyone had told him the event would breach rules.
He was responding specifically to the allegation that Cummings had raised it. Which may or may not be true.
Most people have jumped on it saying "but he made the rules, how can he comlpain he wasnt told". He wasnt complaining that. Lets hang him (metaphorically) for the right crimes eh?

I jokingly suggested them having seen the size of them on youtube, and having issues with a big neigbourhood persian attacking our 3 moggies.
Daughter now wont shutup about getting one. I am unconvinced of the practicalities...
|I suspect the booster rollout may not be entirely succesful|

Got a message saying I can now book.
Checked for appointments local to where I work. Only 4 options came up. Each of them 20 miles away in another city.
I checked near home. Only one option. A pharmacy 6 miles away. I booked that. Earliest appointment is 30 December. Having booked, a screen came up saying that if I did not have a vulnerable person's referral letter, or proof of being a healthcare worker then, if I had booked a booster, I would not be allowed to have it.
I assume that is a remnant from the previous regime, and that it will be fine but still... It will put many off.

And have little time for people endlessly trying to point out perceived bias in their reporting.
However, for the second time this week, they are talking about the "take up" of vaccinations amounts 12-15s as if the issue is that people are not havign vaccinations, rather than one of supply. That seems in keeping with the government line, but not with many people's experiences. I wonder what it is based on? Take up is apparently about 18%. Many of the 82% won't have been offered one....
