Re: Great pics...great captions?

This somehow missed out the price labels - at least £1,000 each.

Re: Brexit consequences

BoJo's latest ploy emerged just after Chris Grey's latest blog message was posted... from BBC News: Talks between the UK and EU over a post-Brexit trade agreement are "over", Downing Street has said. No 10 argued there was "no point" in discussions continuing next week unless the EU was prepared to ...

It was a really world-beating cake, Matt, and furthermore you still had it even after you'd eaten it! :hat

Re: The Conspiracy Chart

You did better than I did, Matt: there are quite a few which are meaningless to me. I have to take issue with one, though - Nazis on the Moon. Anyone who has seen that classic documentary film, Iron Sky , knows that's true! :thumb (my review of it, from my blog: https://sciencefictionfantasy.blogspo...

Re: "Trump Secretly Mocks His Christian Supporters."

No surprise.

I don't think that his base cares about his religious beliefs, or anything much else, as long as he stacks the Supreme Court with right-wing Christians who will vote for what they want.

Re: Anti-COVID sentiment

There is a serious debate to be held about striking an acceptable balance between suppressing Covid-19 (eliminating it being probably beyond reach) and sustaining the economy, i.e. the livelihoods of large numbers of people. I think that we will have to learn to "live with it" to some extent, which ...

The octopus

An extract from a review of a TV programme by Hugo Rifkind made me laugh out loud, if rather ruefully (too close to the truth, I suspect): Honestly, is there anything weirder than an octopus? ....They have no parents to teach them the octopus basics (eggs), and they often live only about a year, and...

BBC obituaries

The BBC displays some puzzling priorities when it notes the deaths of supposedly very well-known people in the news headlines. At the beginning of the year they made a big fuss over US basketball player Kobe Bryant (of whom probably 99.9% of the population - including me - had never heard). And this...

Re: Brexit consequences

Chris Grey is particularly scathing this week about the Internal Market Bill (IMB): https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com In short, there’s no reason to think that the EU is minded to punish the UK in this way, even if it was it couldn’t, even if it could the UK has no need to break international...

Re: New COVID rules

BoJo seems to be getting worse. His love of announcing grand projects ("world-beating", inevitably) followed by taking his eye off the ball and ignoring the problems involved in the detailed implementation of these, has surely reached a peak over Covid testing. His wild promise to spend a sum of mon...
