We’ve only the boss’s word that he didn’t know

The then-International Development Secretary Piggi Patel claimed that Bloody Stupid Johnson knew all about the meetings beforehand but AIUI changed he story when the latter denied it.  Tess of the d'Underheads apparently found out about it from the media, and was Not Amused.  It a sane world such behaviour would see the perp not only hounded out of office but deselected by their constituency party and chased up a tree which is then set on fire but the Tories have not so much rewritten the rule book as cast it aside with great force.

Isn't it funny how those defenders of private business insist privately-owned businesses should allow any old idiot to post any old crap on privately-owned social media platforms, as the rights of the owners of said social media platforms don't actually stretch to being allowed to stop any old idiot posting any old crap on their privately-owned platforms?

Don't worry, where the wingnuts of USAnia lead BRITAIN will likely follow.  So-called “Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport” Oliver Dowden has been sticking his oar in lately with a bunch of storm-inna-teacup twattery about “woke culture” and the alleged “controversy” about The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust changing its name to The Churchill Fellowship.  This, apparently, constitutes “airbrush[ing] Sir Winston Churchill from its public profile”, as if:
  • It happened yesterday rather than two years ago, and
  • the “Churchill” part of the new name now refers to the town in Canada with the polar BEARS, the East London estate agents or cinema's famous Siggi Churchill*
Oliver Dowden: Super-Twat.

There are some genuine (and nuanced) questions about the value of COVID vaccination in the younger age groups – however, I don't think either of those two individuals are interested in that.

Yeah, the JCVI twice advised that.  But now they have changed their minds.  Once, people thought the earth was flat.

will those be the ones that have been exercising the minds of Mr Whitty and the COVID committee and have caused them to not quite agree on the issue in the last month or two? One assumes that if they are now agreeing, they have reached political and medical positions that are sufficiently aligned for a recommendation to be forthcoming.

Head teachers have been threatened with legal action if they take an active part in England's pupil Covid-vaccination programme starting next week.

Lawyers for Liberty and a "group of concerned parents" warned school staff could be held liable for any jab-related death or injury.

Well, they might have agreed to disagree, but that's the consensus they've agreed. I think it's fine to debate that, no medical intervention is purely binary, there are pros and cons.

Of course, those two individuals are supremely unconcerned with that, it's just the usual cheap point-scoring with their credulous followers on social media.

'Lawyers for Liberty'...  a opaque pressure group which is lacks any basic transparency or accountability.  It has no relationship with the (transparent and accountable) group, Liberty.

Appears to be little more than a bunch of crowd-funding ambulance chasers.

There are an awful lot of qualified statements in that article and the additionally linked articles it mostly seems to be written with the primary intention of winding up gammons.

Twobthings come to mind:

1:  a speed limit is a maximum and not a designated speed, and

2:  the faster you go the longer it takes to stop and the less time you have to take avoiding action.

Seems to me that driving within the speed limit and the capabilities of both car and driver would be a far better and safer approach.  Problem is, almost every driver thinks that they are infallible and overly talented but also that every other driver is a talentless, incompetent fool.  It's easy for me to make this observation as a non-driver.
