Useless pillocks

The BBC News channel was at it again last night, repeating the same pair of lines about a possible delay to unlocking over and over and over and over and over again. Mindlessly.
    Maybe it’s time to hang someone to encourage les autres.

Only unimportant stuff affected?

Apparently, the internet crashed last Tuesday. Can’t say I noticed anything strange going on and I was using it most of the morning and early afternoon.

Dosh down the drain

It would be interesting to know how much the current kneeling campaign is costing the footballing industry in lost sponsorship from the gambling firms, which are seeing a drop in business because people are not watching wonks play and not seeing all the gambling adverts.

Include me out

Will I be celebrating Parents Who Have Not Given Birth’s Day a week on Sunday? It’s unlikely.

Not so special

A special relationship in which the US tells the UK what we can and can’t do is not one we should be encouraging. And it’s up to the PM to make that perfectly crystal clear to President Biden as many times as it takes for the message to penetrate.

Westminster Dunce

The reason why Andrew Mitchell is an ex-minister (Cons.) is clear. The Treasury said restoring the cut of £4 billion/year in the foreign aid budget would put 1p on income tax. Mitchell, who was cancelled by the police-confected Plebgate shambles, complained that the 1p would raise £6 billion.
    He’s obviously too thick to get the fact that income tax is so many whole pence in the pound with no fractions or decimal points. Or just too full of himself to be bothered.

Mental, or what!

The Mental Case, series 1, episode 21 – Patrick Jane decides a woman isn’t a real doctor because she has legible handwriting and social skills! You’d think a skilled confidence trickster could do a lot better than that.
