@RussInCheshire I'm so sorry to hear about your mum. I must say, you're being remarkably stoic about it. I dare say you're in bits inside. Be kind to yourself. πŸ˜‡

Meanwhile, don't worry about #TheWeekInTory. I've made some notes for you...
@RussInCheshire To start off #TheWeekInTory, some good news β€”possibly because it's got nothing to do with Tories.

19AUG20: The 1st polar bear to be born in UK for 2yrs will move from its Scottish home to an English Park.

Hmm. That might make a good metaphor for something more political...
@RussInCheshire 1.#WorldHumanitarianDay began tragically when the body of a 16yr-old Sudanese refugee trying to cross the Channel with a friend in a dinghy rowed by shovels washed up on a French beach.

2.Priti Patel responded with invective against criminal gangs, bypassing compassion & concern

@carolecadwalla Trying to research Role of Information Commission (IC) @ICOnews & inherent contradictions of "Independent" regulatory body given powers of State?
Does this look like a covert threat to IC here!??
NB: New appointees in DCMS + Cabinet Office now control IC!? Image

A large group of people goes to a restaurant and places their orders. The food comes, and despite protestations that the portions are both miserly and incorrect, the management insists that this is all they’re getting. The people are hungry, so they eat it.
Just as they’re finishing their meals, the management returns and says that they had in fact been given the wrong food. Therefore, to make amends, they would now be given the right food, but this time in supersized portions.
The older members of the group, who belong to the landed gentry, are experts in gluttony. They not only tuck in but also steal their neighbours' food. The victims protest to the management who claim helplessness but wink conspiratorially at the gluttons.

At the heart of the #examshambles is a double disgrace; one, the social and racial profiling that led to the conclusion that only "good schools" (white, well-off) get good results, and two, the conclusion that people who challenge that prejudice shouldn't get the chance to try.
If you examine that belief, you'll see that this leads directly to the idea that certain groups of people (poor, working-class) might as well not go to school at all.
And why, do you ask, would a Government built on lies, propanda and the weaponization of ignorance prefer an uneducated electorate?
Because it keeps them in power.
Because uneducated people are easier to handle.
