Who owns him, and is therefore saving him from administration?

Or have I misunderstood?

Turns his massive intellect to matters of criminal justice

'Matt Hancock told the Daily Mail people were entitled to enjoy themselves at pubs, but added that people who start fights or cause other disorder "could end up behind bars if you break the law".

Is this news to him?

But this was recommended to me yesterday. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read. You can decide if all the details are true or not.

The central message is clearly spot on though.




You need to read the whole 'thread', as the twitters call it.

Johnny Mandel RIP
at 09:55 1 Jul 2020

Aged 94. A prolific composer, mainly of film music, he wrote the theme tune for M*A*S*H, 'Suicide Is Painless'

The words to 'Suicide Is Painless' were written by Michael Altman, who was fourteen years old at the time, and the son of the film's director Robert Altman. The lyrics took him five minutes to write. Robert Altman observed ruefully that his son earned more from those lyrics than he did from the film.

Last night's Panorama

On the debacle of the UK's testing programme was very interesting.

The much vaunted 25,000 contact tracers are being paid to sit at home. They have between them contacted (and the figures are in the public domain) some 15,000 people. That's less than one each. The remaining approx 100,000 people contacted were reached by the existing teams (numbering some 800) of public health officials.

And this is all 'world beating' remember?

The drive-in testing centres (run by that fine company Deloittes) are staffed entirely by low-paid, half-trained recruits with no medical experience. There are no doctors or nurses on site.

Addendum

And they interviewed this chap

Now that The Rolling Stones are stopping trumpy-wumpy from using their songs at his rally, what should he go for as his next anthem?

How about Mr President, have pity on the working man by Randy Newman? It includes the line
'maybe you're a cheat, maybe you're a liar, maybe you've just lost your mind'

Any other suggestions?
