The under the breath griping in the second clip is just characteristically shit.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Could go on any number of threads, given the levels of govt incompetence on display here

I like it. What is it?

So we are now, finally, closing borders. A mere 9 months after we should have done. And a few weeks after travel companies have reported large upswing in bookings for spring breaks. Fucking clowns.

I don't want to sail in this ship of fools. As Nik Kershaw once sang.

But you're still sending your deadly BRITISH mutation to kill the rest of us.

Kent mutation, Musta. Kent.

(In any event the choice to close country A’s borders to travellers from country B is always a matter for A. But whatever)

Just got off a call with some friends in Spain who were very happy to take my suggestion to call it the English Flu now the variant is in Madrid.

Let's not get regional: as ever, the problem is the English.

Headline from the BBC News website "East West and Northumberland rail lines get £794m boost", with Transport Secretary Grant Shapps stating "These investments would return these routes "to their former glory" and was part of the government's "levelling up" agenda".
The detail shows a slightly different angle on "levelling up" as £760m from the £794m total will be used to connect those two industrial rust belt towns of Oxford and Cambridge, with £34m being allocated to the North East.

My practice does loads of rail and transport work and my idiot Surrey Tory Brexit keeps bleating on about focusing on the Northern Powerhouse bollocks to get new work. I’ve tried telling him time and again that this government will never spend money in the North and it’s all bullshit smoke and mirrors, but he won’t have it.

Don't blame them. I'd like to secede from union with Essex and Kent.

Not really UK Politics perhaps, but I feel sick after reading that a billionaire who enslaved UK workers in sweatshop is taking over the Debenham's brand with the loss pf 12k jobs.

Depressing.
