Morning all.

Twitter is having a lot of fun with JRM's picture of his kids. I particularly like this one.

Labour seem to have hit the ground running in their return to Westminster, which is nice.

Wow, this is outrageous.

When people - and you know the type - talk about how regulations need to be relaxed even further, this is the type of thing they would love.

Soooo...when you advertise for "weirdos and misfits, have a guess at what you get?

Cummings recruit sacked after suggesting police use 'live rounds' on BLM protesters

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... protesters

Quote:
A data specialist recruited to the civil service following Dominic Cummings’ call for “weirdos and misfits” to work for the UK government was sacked recently after posting on social media that police should use live rounds against Black Lives Matter demonstrators, the Guardian can reveal.

The data architect appointed to a senior role in the Cabinet Office after applying through a scheme unveiled by Boris Johnson’s chief adviser was dismissed in July after colleagues discovered his Twitter post and reported it to senior managers.

It is the second known departure of a government recruit hired under the project set up by Cummings, to tempt an “unusual set of people” into senior government roles. Both departures involved recruits who publicly expressed sentiments viewed as racist


:roll:
