Perhaps we develop a #TrackBorisApp - you know, for when he's off on a free holiday, avoiding PMQs, with another woman...

Thread re school meal vouchers, but relevant elsewhere.

That does not mean this specific error was designed in. It means there was not enough money for testing, for helplines, for decent servers, designers & developers. It's structural. The end user has little power, and won't be listened to or believed.

Who would have thought a decade of penny pinching in so many areas might have a real effect, eh?

I know its her home turf and everything, but she has had an excellent crisis.

(and btw whilst Starmer's own responses can and in certain cases should be criticised, some seem to expect him to do everything - there is actually this thing called delegating)

Oops!

Quote:
The scientist whose advice prompted Boris Johnson to lock down Britain resigned from his Government advisory position on Tuesday night as The Telegraph can reveal he broke social distancing rules to meet his married lover.

Professor Neil Ferguson allowed the woman to visit him at home during the lockdown while lecturing the public on the need for strict social distancing in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus. The woman lives with her husband and their children in another house.

So let's see
A junior shadow Labour health minister can brazenly weaponise a global pandemic to basically say us Tories have blood on our hands but the Health Secretary asking her to adopt the more level-headed approach of the shadow Labour health Secretary is an outrage...

6:44 PM - 5 May 2020


Quite right.

It's not as if the Tories brazenly weaponised a global financial crisis is it...oh wait...yes, yes they did. For the last 10 years.

Apologise if I'm upgrading the weaponising here, but what happened was that an MP who is also currently practicing as a doctor putting herself at significantly greater personal risk than the health secretary, was told by the non-practicing health secretary to be more professional.

We might properly also speculate on tory ministerial and prime ministerial responses to women, and to non-white women.

Trump is rolling the dice on allowing the virus to have the field and seeing what happens, and presumably blaming people for choosing unemployment if they won't go back to work, rather than try to run his country for the benefit of the wellbeing of the people in it in the manner of virtually every other leader in the world (our present country's company excepted, obviously) because he thinks encouraging more people to die is where the votes are.

It’s where his votes are.

Hopefully they’re dwindling by the day.
