No LOL's for me in last night's Crace, but still a good one --
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/co ... -141635694

First one today --

" Andy Netherwood, a former RAF pilot and defence commentator, said: “The issue is project creep. If it really is an all-over shiny paint scheme then it’s starting to look – operationally and politically – much more like Air Force One for Boris.”

Air Force One for Boris? RAF plane for VIPs gets a union jack makeover
The prime minister’s plane, also used by royalty, is getting a new paint job costing £100,000 plus

Lovely image of peacock butterfly caterpillars you posted on last night's thread.
Lightening took out our Internet connection for some hours and I was unable to see it or say goodnight to everyone.

Quote:
In the Commons Matt Hancock, the health secretary, said it was not true that student nurses were being made redundant.
But students are finding that their paid placements are ending early.
Quote:
Thousands of student nurses recruited to work on the front line against Covid-19 have been told their placements will be cut short, plunging some of them into financial despair.

Some of us left jobs for this. Many of us have children and families to care for.

The student nurse thing is rubbish isn't it, small change for the govt to pay them for 6 months as they were told. Summer school meals all over again.


I've just read through Sparrow's PMQs coverage, the 'as it happened' part suggested Johnson was as rubbish as ever, but AS verdict was that BJ's schools line was effective.
Quote:
That was Boris Johnson’s best performance at PMQs against Sir Keir Starmer so far. ......
today Johnson sounded like someone who had found a chink in Starmer’s armour, and he exploited it reasonably successfully.

Dear me.

Am knackered. I spent the last 3 months working about 14 hours a day (sometimes from 2 am sometimes to 2 am depending). The thing I was working on went pretty well, but I’m now reporting on it, and my brain really doesn’t care.

Off the desk by the end of the week and then my brain can come out of hiding.

:rock:

I liked the bit after 12.08.50 when Starmer suggested they swop places !
I’d been risking distant thunder earlier … when just after the LD question there was an ear-splitter right overhead . Butter dish and smartphone went flying as I disconnected all cables going into the computer . Butter right side up, fer a change .
Veg and calf market in town today, with no distancing in the crowd, but everyone going into the mairie put on a mask.

Yes, many will have seen that as an effective answer to Johnson's bluster I suspect.

On reflection, it wouldn't surprise me if the Sparrow is really quite impressed with Starmer and just making sure he doesn't let it show. ;)

AK --- and you were joking ? With this shower of shit any rational solutions/actions go out of the window. Half-asleep I heard on the radio that "personal communications, local contacting " was the New Thing , and texts etc was too impersonal/frightening . So YES, it's not impossible that the World-beating App disappears from the public domain , and consciousness !

Meanwhile ................ the Truss is 'negotiating' an ISDS stitch-up of UK society and economy i

Without having read the article I guess the reasoning is:

Link Aid to Trade
What do you need to get Trade?
A fucking great big luxury yacht!
Sorted.

Of course it is blindingly obvious, the "Combined Operations" (TM1944) approach !
