Fao Tiptree Blue. Prince Phillip's legacy
at 08:43 10 Apr 2021

Just got asked by a poster if my view of P.P. would change if I aware of his introducing gift aid.

Couple of points. Firstly, yeah, I hadn't known that and that does sound like a good thing that benefited lots of charities. On a human level that sounds like a very good thing he achieved.

But that doesn't change his role, within an institution of privilege and what it represents. I won't be dothing my cap to him. My dislike of the royals is based on what they represent, not who they are.

And I stand by my point that people should be able to criticise his conduct if they chose. Why ever not?

The small bit on TV I watched on him was borderline stomach churning, making him out to be some super human hero. People of course are welcome to believe that propoganda if they chose. Other's are welcome to challenge it.

Seems to me quite a few monarchists are srruggling with the fact that an awful lot of people recognise the coverage for a 99 year old man is utterly ridiculous.

Trying to track down an album. Bought it before but managed to lose the CD - think I left it in an old car.

Checked on Spotify - can't see it on there.

Called "Back 2 Mapetla" by Gurash (South African artist) released in 2005.

Album cover and one of the songs on the link here:-

When the army/police are using live bullets to shoot protesters, then I think a line has been crossed. To stand by and do nothing is to condone and accept these actions....

Vaccine passports for pubs etc.
at 09:59 2 Apr 2021

An eminent virologist was on the BBC this morning taking apart the scientific argument for "green passports". The gist of his position was that they would give people a false sense of security and so lead to people being "off guard" and so the spread of the virus would increase in pubs etc.

He conceded that the arguments for passports were largely economic, namely that they would encourage otherwise reluctant people to go to hospitality venues, who might otherwise not.

Anyone reconsidering their position, given his clear position that their introduction would increase not decrease the rate of infections?

So in the past 48 hours

We've been told that structural racism isn't a problem in the UK, that the Met police's refusal to facilitate a safe vigil and subsequently arresting women at a vigil is hunky dory and nothing at all to do with the inappropriate pressure from the Home Secretary, and Boris having an affair with a woman whilst simultaneously directing public money her way is "acting with honesty and integrity".

What next?

First glimpsed the west coast of Scotland last autumn, truly stunning. Fair to say it lacks lots of accommodation options which is partly what makes it so wonderful, the isolation (bar a million and 1 campervans)
