The govt’s outsourcing of #COVID19 contracts must be the biggest transfer of public funds into the pockets of friends of the regime since the privatisations in Russia

Good news about Nita Clarke, though it does raise the question of why she was ever proposed for such a role in the first place.

Question that came up in my latest YouGov survey - "how do you prefer to pronounce David Bowie's name?". Wonder what use they think *that* information can be put to :?:

If you pronounce it like the knife you have redneck American tendencies?

So let's try and get something going then?

There have been some Labour front bench resignations after the vote on the "spycops" bill, for a start.......

Sky TV news is reporting that the Speaker has announced that, owing to London now being Tier 2, from Saturday, the sale of alcohol will be banned in the House of Commons. (Sorry, I have no more details.)

I've just stumbled across that information and ran as fast as I could back here to give my opinion. I strongly approve of the Speaker's action.

Long before the pandemic I wrote that I didn't think it'd bother Tory government much if most of us fell off the face the earth.

I continue to reflect on maskgate and would be curious to see the venn diagram of people who consider having to wear a mask a violation of their privacy, and people who thought it was fine to ban burkas.

What's your guess at what it would show?

I would anticipate some overlap. But then again I don't see having to wear eg: clothes in public a violation of my privacy either. Which brings to mind a chap I once saw walking though a busy square in Barcelona wearing nothing but boots and rucksack.

We can all thoroughly approve of this without more details.

His current work visa expires in December. Please read the entire article. I'm unable to summarise it adequately at the moment. His CV19 symptoms are unusual but not unprecedented.

It is, though I wasn't as concerned as some because he has taken lengthy breaks from here before.
