      The timing and regularity of these logs being rolled under Boris is at best highly suspicious. I firmly believe that it is a determined plot and that we are being lied to and manipulated by powerful anti-brexit, anti-conservative shady groups, not excluding the NHS, Police, Home office, civil service etc… and all with the help of the BBC!

      I would have thought there was enough smoke and mirrors now to call for a full government inquiry when the dust settles.

    Inspiration for Thick Ange?


    Claudia Webbe: MP made threat to send nudes of woman, court hears.

    Michelle Merritt and threatened her with acid
    An MP threatened to send naked pictures of a woman to her family because she was jealous of her friendship with her partner, a court has heard.

    Claudia Webbe, 56, also allegedly used a misogynistic insult against Michelle Merritt and threatened her with acid.

    Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard Ms Webbe, who is an independent MP for Leicester East after being suspended by the Labour Party, was in a relationship with Lester Thomas at the time.

    She denies one charge of harassment.

    The threats were made during 16 phone calls between 1 September 2018 and 26 April last year, the court heard.

    “The reason for the harassment would appear to be the fact that Michelle Merritt was friends with Lester Thomas and this was an issue for the defendant Claudia Webbe,” prosecutor Susannah Stevens said.

    She said Ms Webbe made a string of short silent phone calls from a withheld number to Ms Merritt, who told the court she had known Mr Thomas for more than 15 years and was “good friends” with him, having previously dated.

    ‘Should be acid’
    Ms Merritt, giving evidence from behind a screen, said: “There was a pattern that whenever I had even met with Lester Thomas, if we had gone out for a drink or something, there would be a phone call.

    “When you are being called and no-one answers, it’s unnerving, especially as a woman who lives alone.”

    The court heard the harassment “escalated” on Mother’s Day, 31 March 2019, when the MP asked Ms Merritt about her relationship with Mr Thomas.

    Ms Merritt said Ms Webbe told her she was “Lester’s girlfriend” and then “really started shouting, ‘Why are you contacting Lester?'”

    “She was very, very angry at me. It was loud,” Ms Merritt added.

    The 59-year-old said Ms Webbe used a misogynistic insult, adding Ms Merritt “should be acid”.

    “She confirmed she knew where I lived and would send pictures and videos to my daughters,” Ms Merritt said.

    Ms Webbe – who entered the Commons in December 2019 and worked as a councillor in Islington between 2010 and 2018 – denies making any such threats.

    Ms Merritt told the court she called police, saying: “I have been threatened by a public figure with acid over the phone.”

    Ms Webbe was warned by officers in April 2019, but magistrates heard claims she continued to make further calls to the complainant – who recorded one after ringing her back on 25 April last year.

    In the call, played in court, Ms Webbe is heard repeatedly telling Ms Merritt to “get out of my relationship”, adding “I have seen all of your naked pictures. I will show them all of your pictures”.

    Paul Hynes QC, representing Ms Webbe, suggested his client contacted Ms Merritt to tell her she and Mr Thomas should not be breaking Covid-19 lockdown regulations together from the end of March.

    However, the complainant said Ms Webbe did not ask her about breaking lockdown rules.

    Mr Hynes said: “You have conducted a little campaign against Ms Webbe, haven’t you, because for whatever reason you didn’t like the fact she was in a relationship with Lester Thomas?”

    “You are incorrect,” Ms Merritt said.

    The trial continues.

    Weirdly, the BBC no less report another triumph for the public sector.

    On the instructions of North Yorkshire council, a road contractor has just painted ‘School Keep Clear’ and Zig Zag markings outside a school, according to the contract he has with the council.

    Slight problem. The school closed in 2003 and is now converted into housing. Residents have lost their parking spaces.

    No doubt the roads committee will be meeting to remedy the situation at some point in the next several months, if the green eco fanatics do not get to them first and accuse the council of ‘promoting car use’ if they do anything sensible.

    You really cannot make it up.


  5. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    Did you know that petrol has an expiry date, I didn’t.

    There’s a post on Facebook which says that because of covid a lot less petrol was sold over the last year and a half and that this ‘shortage’ has been manufactured to get the petrol that has been held in stock used up before it expires.

    I looked it up and depending on how it’s stored it can degrade within a few months.

    The Facebook poster said the suppliers are shifting this petrol onto the users rather than having to dispose of it.

    This seems far fetched but if you follow the money it makes some sense.
    If I find the Facebook comment I’ll copy it onto here.

    You can make your own minds up but in these times when men have a cervix who’s to say what’s right, Humpty Dumpty?

    • MarkyMark says:

      According to the RAC, petrol generally has a shelf life of around six months if it is stored properly. That means in a tightly sealed container at 20 degrees. At higher temperatures it degrades more quickly, for instance at 30 degrees it will last for just three months.6 hours ago


  6. Sluff says:

    Isn’t it amazing that for nearly 9 months after Brexit the petrol stations have been re-filled with no observable issues, and ditto the supermarkets except for a few products now and then.

    So….have all the lorry drivers suddenly disappeared?
    Where have they suddenly gone?
    It sounds like a case of ‘Independent of Brexit’ and not ‘because of Brexit’ to me.

    Which of course is definitely NOT the message the BBC want to give us.


    • Scroblene says:

      Petrol companies get their legs over gullible Beeboids, tell them anything, Beeboids make one phone-call to a more gullible politician, politician panics, tells Beeb to agree to tell the nation that there’s a ‘shortage’, petrol companies get rid of excess stock (from the covids), job done!

    BBC swamp nonsense

    A shadow labour minister has resigned . The letter to Starmer is brutal in its denounciation . So the BBC accepts another stadow labour minister .

    The brief of the Labour shadow minister was

    1 – I haven’t read the letter
    2 – call the resigned one a nice chap
    3 – be a nice chap – be chummy
    4 – say sir Starmer is a nice chap
    5 – be surprised at the resignation because he was on board and was also a nice chap

    Who really cares – but it gives a good sense of how the BBC treats its favourite socialist party …. Popcorn …

    New idea for a BBC daytime series -‘ get that petrol’

    2 teams with cars nearly out of petrol have to find a petrol tanker and follow it to a petrol station – then queue jump to fill up before the end of the show …and survive ..

      Easy to see how JO’bsworth was too thick even for the bbc.

        One would need a special talent to determine which drivers in a queue were seeking to buy petrol that they didn’t need.

    He said that while people have the right to write books others disagree with, companies should not profit from “extreme hate content” and making offensive books available to buy gave them “dangerous” legitimacy.

    Calling on the retailers to remove the titles from their sites, Hope Not Hate was joined by MPs including Labour’s Ruth Smeeth, who said that extremist, hate-filled books had no place on the booksellers’ websites.



    • Wild Bill says:

      So who decides which books we arent allowed to read, isnt this 1984?


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        ‘1984’, ‘Fahrenheit 451’, or a little bit of both?

        Am sure we’ll see book burnings before this insanity is over.

        ‘Hope Not Hate’ is such an Orwellian name, isn’t it? Reminds me of the ‘Ministry of Love’.

    • Rich says:

      Apparently Fed he’s “from Eastbourne, East Sussex”. An ” Eastbourne man” according to most of the main news outlets that my search engine points me towards when I stick in his most un-East Sussex sounding name. Only suspected of being “originally from Eastern Europe” one outlet suggests.
      The bBbc? He’s just “a man” to them of course.

      “Eastbourne man” my arse, stop effin’ insulting our intelligence.

      He’s an Albanian EX- Dominos Pizza delivery driver, note the ex, of no value to our society whatsoever, another pos from a Muslim-majority crime-ridden shithole, here only to leach off us.

      He shouldn’t be here at all, under any circumstances, but because our politicians and their posing pals are so pathetically weak, an innocent girl, well-respected and contributing positively to the society in which she lived, is now dead. And because there are so many more like him now roaming this country our wives and our sisters and our daughters no longer feel safe to walk many of our streets, day or night.

      And it feels that wasteful and senseless murders like this are just going to happen more and more and more and there’s nothing that we can really do about it.


    • taffman says:

      When is our Home Secretary going to put the safety and lives of the people of Great Britain first ?
      Its time she went.


      • Rich says:


        I don’t think it makes any difference who the Home Secretary is.

        I live in the town in which I was born in Northern Ireland. I have known people who have been murdered and those who have lost murdered loved ones, I have had friends lose parents, targeted by terrorists because of the career they chose, and have a close friend who lost a couple of limbs and two colleagues when the patrol car he was in was blown to bits. Every day our local news showed the aftermath of bombs and the names and faces of innocent victims. As children and as teenagers I and most of the rest of my generation here thought nothing of it. We were obviously to a large extent desensitized to it all, it was just the way things were. Instinctively we knew where we could and couldn’t go, and what and what not to say. And to who. We knew everyone, where they lived, what their family backgrounds were and what church they belonged to. As long as we knew where we were and who we were with, despite the madness around us, we felt safe. We were able to keep ourselves safe.

        And now, nearing fifty and with three teenage daughters, I believe that I did actually feel safer then than I do now. I knew what the unwritten rules were then, that not to follow them could be fatal, I knew who could and who couldn’t be trusted. Not anymore.

        Immigration from Eastern Europe has changed my hometown completely in a little over ten years, and not for the better. I fear this damage cannot be made good. It has, implausible and ridiculous as it may sound, made it a more dangerous place. Obvious groups of ill-mannered and vocal young men crowd together in their ethnic groups in the parks and main shopping areas and feral children skip school to shoplift and run through traffic. Levels of petty crime, burglary, anti-social behaviour, car crime and motoring offences, domestic violence and sexual assault have all shot up, and alcohol related crime and violence is through the roof. Rural crimes like sheep-stealing have become big business. Sex trafficking and child exploitation amongst certain communities is now an issue, as is prostitution. The types of crimes and social issues that we thought we had evolved through as a society now appear commonplace.

        I believe that my daughters would have been safer growing up here during “the Troubles” than they are growing up here now. That sounds crazy I know but I honestly think they would of been. Who is Home Secretary won’t change that.


        • Rob in Cheshire says:


          Sounds like you have got the Roma living amongst you. They are, as Thick Angie would say, “scum”.

          They come to the UK because they get short shrift from the police in Romania, Hungary, Slovakia et al. If they step out of line there they get a dose of PC Stick. Over here, the Common Purpose police chiefs treat them with kid gloves. They cannot believe their luck. If they had any sense they would behave decently in a country which treats them decently, but that would take a level of intelligence they do not possess.

  20. pugnazious says:

    ‘When Churchill became prime minister in May 1940 he described the BBC as “the enemy within the gates, doing more harm than good”. ‘

    From the Telegraph….it’s the ‘new normal’ as imposed upon you…with much, much more to come….and yet where’s the scrutiny…where’s the questions…where’s the democracy….or don’t they trust us to agree to the green dictatorship?…….the BBC’s proud boast, and its oft voiced justification for its own existence, is that it holds ‘Power to account’….

    ‘ Holding power to account.

    That’s a broad theme and at one level it’s a statement of the obvious – it’s what journalists do.

    It is the journalists’ job to hold power to account – to shine light in dark places. ‘

    And yet…not at all during covid…the government has been allowed to impose some of the most draconian and illiberal and, many would say, unnecessary restrictions upon us without a murmur of complaint or challenge from the BBC and the same failure, wilful failure, to challenge the radical and extreme green policies is being enacted before our eyes as green policies pump up the price of power and create havoc in our transport system…and just as Biden and Co didn’t give a damn about Russian hacking of US fuel systems Boris and the BBC have no concern about the massive damage being done here…the real agenda is always to ‘save the planet’ [and in the BBC’s case always a chance to falsely blame Brexit for something]…and if we are forced off the roads and forced to buy less as fuel and energy is so expensive then good…..

    ‘A messianic recipe for saving the world which is so apocalyptic that it must not be delayed ‘

    ‘Maybe this is it. Tumultuous turning points in history are often scarcely noted as they happen because the changes are so incremental and mundane that they do not seem to be much more than little local difficulties. But perhaps we are living through the dying moments of what will one day be seen as a golden age of mass prosperity and individual freedom that is destined to become mythic in the eyes of later generations. What are the tiny steps that might be harbingers of this great collapse of the Age of Affluence with its expectations of self-determination and mobility? Has your energy supplier doubled your charges, or gone bust and handed you over to one of the small number of monopolistic corporations that will now control delivery of the most essential commodity in modern life? Well, you say, that could just be a consequence of global gas shortages. But hasn’t the running down of gas supplies been a deliberate climate policy, without any proper thought being given to how inadequate the alternatives to gas might be? (Windmills are useless when the wind doesn’t blow. Who knew?) Isn’t the Government now preparing to decree, in unprecedented statutory detail, precisely how you will be permitted to access the essential life-sustaining heating and fuel that your household requires? And will this effectively mean that the supply will take so much of your income that your consumption (and hence your lifestyle choices) will have to be sharply reduced? Is the government quite deliberately proposing to make what have become the standards of living that ordinary people expect, so expensive and problematic that they will, once again, become the province of the rich and powerful?

    Perhaps you think it fanciful to talk of the end of an era in terms of fuel bills or private transport. But what is significant about these deprivations is their inexorable direction and the callousness with which they are proposed. Boris Johnson, doing his bizarre Marie Antoinette impersonation at the UN, seemed to have no understanding whatever of the hardship that his unthought-out, uncosted, unaccountable gallop to a green heaven would impose on huge swathes of the population who had come to think of themselves as free agents in an economically advanced, liberal society. There is a very serious misalignment here between what are still (just) the political assumptions on which we understand our modern governing priorities to rest, and what is coming to be taken as an incontrovertible truth that cannot be resisted: a messianic recipe for saving the world which is so apocalyptic that it must not be delayed or mitigated even by what was once our most sacred social principle – that governments should not enact measures which will inevitably damage the quality of life of people who are already disadvantaged. In other words, policies which disproportionately hurt the less well-off.

    The chief objective of twentieth century democracy was to equalise the living conditions and economic opportunities of entire populations. Whatever your view of the urgency of climate change, it is critically important to recognise that many of the steps now being proposed (in some cases, enshrined in law) to deal with what is considered to be a global emergency are designed precisely to reverse that progress. The quite explicit message, not only of the lunatics who block motorways but of the wider environmental movement, is that too many people can now afford too much. This is the real force of the new incarnation of anti-capitalism: far too great a proportion of the population can now spend money in ways that are potentially dangerous to the environment, and it is free market economics which made this possible. The “planet” (always spoken of as if it were a sentient being in danger of “dying”) is suffering the consequences of their self-indulgence and profligacy. Answer: make sure, by strategy or edict, that either they are unable to afford their irresponsible behaviour or are actually banned from doing so. Make no mistake, this is the moral core of the militant environmental cause: there is too much wealth, too much “waste”, too much choice and too many people living too long. (Since the pandemic cut a swathe through the elderly population of the West, they have gone rather quiet on this last point.)

    A damaging confusion at the heart of this doctrine is the role that capitalism and the industrial revolution – its twin evil in the eyes of the environment lobby – played in the lives of the great mass of the population. The current version of Marxist mythology casts them as being the joint causes of the victimisation of the poor. Marx himself did not see it this simplistically: he understood that industrialisation not only created more diversified wealth (which was previously tied to the ownership of land) but liberated the rural population from what was effectively agrarian serfdom. But that message does not suit the self-flagellating version of the fable which seems in a rather inchoate way to long for some purer form of existence, not just pre-industrial but even pre-agricultural, at one with the Earth (in its role as spiritual companion) and Nature (whose own ruthless imperatives are never explored). This odd mix of childlike sentimentality and economic illiteracy makes no room for the obvious truth: that industrialisation and market economics transformed the nasty, brutal and short lives of most people into something that at least approached the comfort and security that were once the sole property of those who were the inheritors of privilege. This is the quite shamelessly blatant refrain of the most aggressive elements of the climate change lobby. Insulate Britain says, in no uncertain terms, that it is happy to prevent people from pursuing their livelihoods since commerce itself is the enemy. You may well believe that climate change is urgent enough to justify virtually any step that is taken to address it. But be quite sure about what you are endorsing and the sacrifices it will involve – for you and for people less well off than you. This campaign, as it stands, is opposed to mass prosperity, to self-determination and ultimately to social equality. Gas bills are just the start.

    And irony that the BBC notes the problem….of an unaccountable, unscrutinized government but fails to note that not only has Parliament been sidelined but most of the media has as well…the BBC surrendering its right to shine light into the darkness and do what journalists are supposed to do…ask questions that challenge the governemnt and make them justify their actions…especially those that are so draconian and harsh.


  21. JimS says:

    A question not being asked:

    What does Insulate Britain propose to insulate Britain with?

    Some suggestions, thermal blocks made from pulverised fuel ash, (need to burn coal), vapour check-polyurethane, (need to smelt aluminium and process oil), glass fibre, (need to dig up sand, heat it up and spin it out), rockwool, need to quarry rock, smash it up and spin it out or wool, (need to farm masses of methane-belching sheep, shave and spin. Seems to be a lot of energy needed before the savings kick in.

    Another suggestion: People could live in warmer countries, not cold places like the UK – Depopulate now!

    Well what a surprise. They have charged a man with the murder of Sabina Nessa but it’s not even the headline article. Just a sub article destined to quickly slip into regions.

    This is everything they tell us about the arrest:
    ‘Koci Selamaj, 36, was arrested in Eastbourne, East Sussex, on Sunday.’
    No mention that he is Eastern European.

    They will be very disappointed that he is an immigrant and not an English whitey after their initial excitement from the CCTV footage that he might be.

          2. Liberals have a policy of low expectation when it comes to foreign people. Liberal racism works on the principle that coloured people are little more than children, who are only capable of criminal and deviant behaviour and have to be pandered to ‘because they don’t know any better’.

    The unfortunate murder of Sabina Nessa has dominated the news pages of the BBC over the last week with outcrys from various women’s groups condeming males as misogynist.
    Now that the identity of the accused is known there appears to be a tailing off of interest in the case.
    No prizes for guessing why this must be.

    The dream of a White Male English murderer has been ripped from the BBC and the special interest groups who will now drop the story as if it hadn’t ever happened.

    No questions will be asked as to how this person happened to be living in the UK.

    Sabina Nessa you no longer serve the needs of the anti White English Male obsessed BBC , so rest in peace young lady and at least your name will not be used to further support the hatred for one section of our diverse society supported and endorsed by the for left and funded by the BBC.

    RIP Sabina Nessa

      What it shows is that these people don’t care one bit about the person who died.

      The odd thing is that I think these people actually do believe they DID care. And now their motive for caring is gone, they will move on to the next one without a shred of remorse or shame.

    We are living in grim times. Over the last fortnight we have had very discouraging election results. Firstly Justin Trudeau won the Canadian election. The populist party didn’t win a seat. The we get the result from the German general election where the AfD dropped from third placed party to fifth! In the two state elections things were not any better. Berlin saw the AfD lose twelve seats, while in Meclkenburg-Vorpommern it managed to just retain it’s second ranking but lost four seats. In Upper Austria the FPO (Freedom Party) in the regional parliament barely managed to hang on to it’s second place losing seven seats.

    Where oh where did that momentum go? Remember back in 2016 and thereabouts?
    Here’s some nostalgia for you. We had such hopes.


    • LynetteO says:

      Change of subject. An example of how the BBC can write the truth out of history was shown today when the BBC repeated the well established myth yet again – that on this day Alexander Fleming discovered the penicillin mould by accident. In fact it was a German Jew Ernst Chain and an Australian Dr Howard Florey who discovered penicillin . But the British establishment at the time attributed it to Alexander Fleming an Oxford graduate and one of “theirs”and this lie has become a fact . I haven’t heard or seen it challenged for many years now.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Completely agree. The flame of true democracy still burns in Eastern Europe, they know its true value after Nazis and communism. In the West we no longer appreciate the huge benefits we have derived from capitalism tempered by liberal democracy, nor do we understand how vulnerable such a way of organising society is and the need for it to be defended from enemies both internal and external.
      I’m afraid people have been seduced by bread and circuses and by the time they wake up it will be too late to wrest back the levers of control or to resist the march of our enemies.
      THIS POST was supposed to be a reply to Yasser above.


    • Fedup2 says:

      You write as though you assume the elections were fair – that votes were made properly and counted honestly . The US has shown that it can be fiddled quite easily – courtesy of like minded MSM and fixed IT systems – with a bit of help from foreign enemies if needed …

      It will be interesting if a non approved party ever wins an election again – discounting those few countries with non approved governments ( eg Hungary ) ..

      Justin and chums have been pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into a constipated media in Canada that *utterly misrepresents* what is happening and fawns nauseatingly over literally anything that the Liberal Party does

      I wondered about this so I used the wonders of the Internet to listen/watch streams of major radio stations and some TV.

      – if one survived on that diet of “news” and commentary, it’s understandable that you wouldn’t recognise what the People’s Party were saying.

  34. Fedup2 says:

    The daughter of a dead Labour Party leader doesn’t sound happy today . She conducted a very aggressive interview with the chair of the parliamentary transport committee of the ‘fuel panic ‘ .

    She was quick to blame Brexit but unfortunately whoever researched said red Tory MP failed to mention he was a remainer traitor and admitted such .

    Also – he had the numbers for the shortage of drivers in EU countries which screwed her .

    Then she said ‘but they are not having a fuel crisis ‘ – ‘yes – says MP – but they are not talking about it ‘ – which is as near to criticism of the BBC that you get these days ….

    …I’m still trying to guess what ‘shortage’ the BBC is going to concoct or incite next ….fireworks? Poppy sellers ? Something Christmassy ? … they do like ‘things rotting in the field ‘because of Brexit …

      And they finish it with:
      ‘And in a speech littered with references to his “comrades”, welcomed with a warm reception, he seemed to have achieved his repentance.’

    TOADY Watch #1 – Meet Andy McDonald, Secretary of State for Resigning & Silly Statements in the next Labour Government

    He’s the new HERO of the Labour movement because he wants the Police to be more visible on the streets of the UK to bring an end to anti-social behaviour. Oh and he resigned from Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet after Sucker broke his leadership contest ‘pledges’, not least over minimum wage.

    If the Police are not visible enough with their bulky stab-proof vests with bodycams, bulging pepper sprays and radios or when wearing hi-viz jackets, I assume the new Labour Lefty Hero will spend Police budgets on changing their uniforms to a rainbow colour. He proposes spending just over a quarter of a million pounds on making Police more visible on the streets of the UK.

    Nick Robinson scoffs at this small sum because it is less than his annual salary.

      • Up2snuff says:

        Fed, I think maybe McDonald will spend lots of taxpayer money to have more ‘targets’ for the Police which they will then avoid walking the beat in order to (on overtime, naturally) fill in bits of paper to send to the Home Office reporting that they have failed to meet expectations – again – and will need yet more money from the taxpayer.

        Pardon my synicism but …. I think I know the way of the (Labour) world.


    • Up2snuff says:

      On reflection, I think Andy McDonald new Labour Lefty Hero said he would spend £280,000,000 on more and more visible Police on the streets of the UK.

      Nick Robinson still scoffed at this sum because he knew it was smaller than the amount paid to Chief Constables in their salaries and also less than the total pay and remuneration package of top BBC presenters like himself and the BBC Board’s executives.

    More key than we imagined

    No more pizza for me, thanks, I have to watch my waistline

    After our politicians and media have so predictably already trotted out one familiar tired old cure-all trope: ‘Army called up to tackle UK’s fuel crisis‘ (‘i’) (I thought the military already did that job for us in Iraq? – but I digress) – so now we get another tedious media go-to trope: ‘Priority at pumps for key workers in plan to ease crisis‘ (Telegraph)

    This is where the majority of the UK population find out we just aren’t considered “key” enough.

    Or, as we learned in lockdown, we form a mass of second class apparent non-key workers who fall ouside of the public sector and are regarded as somewhat dispensible: ‘Let all key workers fill up first‘ – the Mirror casting the net, or if you will, opening that red silk rope outside the exclusive club, as wide as they dare with the phrase “all key workers”. We get a further definition of this elite group from the Mirror: ‘Calls to give critical staff priority‘ – makes sense, I guess, critical one imagines has a similar linguistic root as the word crisis.

    Of course we all know who these key workers are and it’s certainly not the bloke in the little kiosk by the station who also does shoe repairs: ‘Fuel buying frenzy puts health services at risk, doctors warn‘ (FT) – health services plural? Come on FT, let’s call a spade a spade, and eventually, quoting the doctors union the BMA we invoke the Holy Name of the Deity: ‘“As pumps run dry there is a real risk that NHS staff won’t be able to do their jobs”‘ – Watch this space – teachers unions tomorrow on why State schools will have to close unless Miss gets priority to fill up her Mini.

    I should have thought absolute priority at the pumps ought to go the HGV drivers. Perhaps the Daily Star also noticed which group of workers are more key than we imagined? ‘Truckers “treated like lepers”‘ – dare we play the mental game of general strike and think about which group of workers we might really miss first?

    The Star today further cautions us that all the adulation and reverence and 8 o’clock claps and priority given to jump the queue in supermarkets and discounts at shops and dictatorial powers of public health officials – that all may just have gone to their heads: ‘In slightly troubling medical news, boffins claim we’re all at risk of diabetes if we can’t fit into the same size trousers we could aged 21

    Don’t worry, the likelihood of a promise of a home visit or even random call to come into the surgery to actually see in person your GP for some Cinderella-like test fitting into a pair of your old vintage flared jeans is all still a pretty remote pipe dream.

    The Times purports to care for our physical health: ‘How to stay fit after you’ve hit 40‘ but in fact targets our mental anxieties: ‘Long Covid? Don’t ignore the symptoms

    A feature somewhat at odds with: ‘Commuting is good for your mind – and waistline‘ (Times)

    The BBC tells us: ‘Sabina Nessa: Man charged with teacher’s murder‘ – and our sensitive cat whiskers begin to twitch as we sense something may be amiss in the BBC report. Man charged… tell us something we don’t know. We read on beyond the headline and discover: ‘Koci Selamaj, 36, was arrested in Eastbourne, East Sussex, on Sunday‘ – that will be one of the Sussex Selamajs. Allegedly.

    The Daily Mail tells us he’s a pizza delivery man by trade. So he’s not a key worker. Whereas I reckon as a primary school teacher she would have qualified as key. Although the Mail’s pic of her looks more like some 15-year-old social media influencer than a teacher. The juxtaposition of her soft focus heavily made up pouting pic beside his bullet-headed rather swathy mug shot has me calling the Mail’s presentation salacious. I tend to side with the feminists on this issue of media purience. Although they will focus simply on the BBC headline “man”. Eventually we’ll find out if there’s any lax immigration rules angle.

    The Daily Mirror has a royal scandal exclusive: ‘I’ll testify against Andrew’s pizza alibi‘ – and for those conspiracy theorists who notice there’s pizzas everywhere and insist the media hide their plots in plain sight just to rub our noses in their evil control of the messaging, Google reassures us ““Pizzagate” is a debunked conspiracy theory that went viral during the 2016 United States presidential election cycle. It has been extensively discredited

    Nothing to worry about there then.

    The Guardian presents us with a classic front page. There’s the Brexit bashing headline: ‘Brexit to blame for UK’s fuel crisis, says frontrunner to succeed Merkel‘ – never mind rule from Brussels, the Gruan would presumably have our laws made from Berlin. ‘“Olaf Scholz is right… We are now facing up to the reality of Brexit” Anna Soubry. Former Tory business minister‘ and bitter hasbeen.

    And then in the Guardian following the Brexit doom and gloom it’s suddenly all rainbows and unicorns with Labour: ‘Green shoots. Labour vows £28bn a year to tackle climate crisis‘ meanwhile there’s a bit of a kerfuffle in Labour ranks over a proposed: ‘£15-an-hour minimum wage‘ – by the time Labour get a turn in power inflation will make £15 look like chicken feed, you’ll be tipping the pizza delivery boy a £20 and as for £28bn government spending that’s already a mere Boris bagatelle.

    Rather than being prosecuted Lapsley was just quietly moved back to the Foreign Office.
    To this day, the MOD and Foreign Office carry on the same farcical cover-up plan and are yet to admit publicly that Lapsley was the person responsible or even explain their actions.

    Lapsley has now resumed his commentary on twitter.
    … the most troubling part of his twitter output is the number of times he endorses messages about UK participation in EU military integration schemes, which he has done with retweets, comments and ‘likes’.
    As Lapsley himself knows all too well, participation in these EU schemes such as EU Permanent Structured Cooperation and the European Defence Fund, requires the alignment and even surrender of UK political policy powers to those of the EU.

    I was waiting for some mention of Christ – Jesus – christianity – but none of these words were used –

        Scrobie, I remember when the Toronto Blessing was on the go back in the 1990s, that Holy Trinity Brompton and its clergy used to be occasionally found on the front page of the Times, Telegraph or Guardian.

        Musing on the thought of the good Canon Winkett and St James Piccadilly reminded me that in ‘the good old days’ ie. pre-Pandemic, when I would occasionally walk past that church when in central London, it always reminded me of the Lord Jesus Christ – in that, at least, St James was fulfilling part of its task! – and His visits to the Temple in Jerusalem, two visits in particular are brought to mind. 😉

    Moving dangerous goods by road is governed by international regulations and is strictly policed. Most European countries are signed up to ADR. Each country that complies with ADR implements specific safety measures through its own national legislation.
    ADR ensures that any dangerous goods transported by road can cross international borders freely if the goods, vehicles and drivers comply with its rules.
    ADR has been in force since 1968 and is administered by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). It’s updated every 2 years to take account of technological advances.
