Good morning.

Shocked by this I was, really...

I know the type of person the govt wanted on their race commission because with my deep knowledge of senior black UK talent, I was asked by No 10 to recommend people for it. None of mine got in and No 10 later admitted they considered only people with a particular mindset on race
2:08 PM · Apr 1, 2021 from Bromley, London·Twitter for iPhone


I heard a former Met superintendent on Today earlier - sounds like the consultation process was a shambles, some of the people he was on a Zoom call with shouldn't have been there and were removed, and the two commissioner started arguing amongst themselves. And again, he mentioned the lack of diversity of thought in the whole thing.

lolol boris johnson was asked why people in hartlepool should vote tory and he said because we spent £3.5m on the local hospital. turns out he was referring to a hospital in a different constituency and hartlepool’s hospital lost its a&e department to tory cuts

Labour candidate Paul Williams had a rant about this as well.

I'd be very, very surprised if you could find anyone in Hartlepool who didn't know Johnson was lying, because the local hospital has been in the news for years. As North Tees, where the 3.5m went, is showing its age, local NHS had a plan to build a 'super-hospital' and close both North Tees and H'pool General, they never got funding for it and as you can imagine it was very controversial indeed.

They know he was lying and a good number of them will vote tory anyway, that's where we are.

I'm slightly more optimistic, people will surely be more bothered when Johnson's lies affect them personally rather than just other "undeserving" people.

Good stuff from Marina Hyde.

The culture war is a box of matches the UK government can't help playing with

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... ace-report

Quote:
But this is where we are. Every time some cabinet minister rushes eagerly to the frontline of the culture wars, they are espousing a politics indistinguishable from that of a preposterous tit having a midlife crisis. Yet still they rush. It is beginning to feel as if the government wants a culture war more than anything.


and look what popped up earlier...

The flying of the Union flag should be compulsory for all schools. If any pupils and teachers have concerns about this then surely they can be “educated” about what the flag actually represents. Flag of United Kingdom belongs to every single British person.

Here's that former Met officer I heard this morning.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/ ... -babu-says

Quote:
“It was a Fawlty Towers-like experience. We were told it was going to be ex-BAME police officers. I turned up and it was youth workers … a whole hotchpotch of individuals,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

“We raised concerns that we ex-police officers talked about and then they stopped the meeting [and] got rid of some people who were not supposed to be on there.”


Total shambles.

Get the coronavirus vaccination as soon as you can.
I've had some achy and feverish side effects from the vaccine as well as a sore arm but I'm much better now.

I hadn't realised Friday (yesterday) was a holiday and that lack of attention of mine caused problems in the citizen household

Good, very good

I booked my shot early Sunday morning and was in and out of a nearly deserted area within ten minutes. I don't go out so it's not likely I'd caught the virus from someone. I was uncomfortable for several days, aches, chills, on/off fever but nothing to make me afraid of having the second one.

It turns out Sir Robbie Gibb - former No10 head of comms under Theresa May - had a significant role advising on the media strategy for the race report launch. It was done pro-bono.

One source says there’s now a “blame game” underway in government about “why it landed so badly”.

That report really is the gift that carries on giving...

@LukeLJB
In the Sewell report, sandwiched between ‘Class B Drug’ and ‘EBacc’, is a new definition of ‘Cultural Capital’.

Like Ofsted’s definition, it is wrong. CC, if it exists, is a mechanism that inhibits ‘social mobility’.

It’s also lifted - verbatim - from Wikipedia


:D

Did they rush this report out to draw attention from anything else?

This seems to be in front of a paywall right now.

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/c80f ... dca4d38c8a

Worth reading - Jeremy Haywood does not come across well in this.

Paying suppliers quicker is really easy - you just stick their payment terms into the master data onto your system, do a payment run and it picks up all invoices that are due for payment! You don't actually need anything else to get in the way.

Oh dear...

Race report boss wanted schools to teach 'the truth' about modern Britain

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/ ... rn-britain

Quote:
The chairman of the controversial review of racial disparities drew up plans to introduce a new compulsory school subject to teach children “the truth” about modern Britain, the Observer has been told.

Tony Sewell suggested that an official textbook would be deployed in all schools as part of the new course. According to sources involved in the discussions, he said that the idea had been successfully deployed in Russia.

Her Tweet is so batshit crazy it got a response from Kevin Sorbo! She's hit the big time!

"Mrs Morrissey, as an executive director of the Foreign Office how have you furthered the interests of the United Kingdom this week?"

"Well, I got a response on Twitter from someone who used to play Hercules on TV in the 90's who recently got publicly humiliated by Xena Warrior Princess after he claimed Antifa were storming the Capitol Building and became a laughing stock."

"I see, jolly good, here's £50,000, you'll get another 50 grand if you can say something so unutterably stupid it gets a response from Rudy Jiuliani."

It turns out Sir Robbie Gibb - former No10 head of comms under Theresa May - had a significant role advising on the media strategy for the race report launch. It was done pro-bono.

One source says there’s now a “blame game” underway in government about “why it landed so badly”.

I wonder if they've considered "it's all lies"?


Ah yes, it was definitely both clumsy and cynical enough to be him.

Two of the eggs behaved themselves, the shells cracked a bit on the way down the hill and after scraping a bit of dirt off I was able to eat them. The other one divested itself of its shell entirely on the way down, bounced off a hummock and flew into a child's pushchair whereupon it burst into pieces. Fortunately the child's mother was a good sort and we had a laugh about it. You're supposed to roll eggs on Easter Monday but it's meant to be freezing tomorrow so sod that.

Thanks for all the posts. The political ones are great, but the SGO’s egg roll calamity wins the day :-)

I helped a bloke who lives upstairs yesterday with a drinks cabinet he'd got from somewhere which still had some bottles in it. One was an unopened bottle of Taylor's 'crusted' Port from 1973. I told him it was probably worth a bit of money so not to open it but he's payed no attention and has just been round in a very merry mood offering me a glass. It was extremely tasty and probably the most expensive drink I've ever had. For free.

I wonder if I should tell him.
