‘Very quietly, apparently while hoping that no-one was watching, the Home Office has used a ministerial power to directly overrule Parliament. It is unprecedented. It's the kind of thing no previous government would have ever dreamed of doing.’ link.news.inews.co.uk/view/63aa9c68d… This goes way beyond corruption.

“Johnson is… the most accomplished liar in public life - perhaps the best liar ever to serve as Prime Minister.”

Rory Stewart

“He has mastered the use of error, omission, exaggeration, diminution, equivocation and flat denial. He has perfected casuistry, circumlocution, false equivalence and false analogy.”

He came from Eton, had a thirst for profit
He studied Greek at an Oxford College
That's where lies
Caught his eye
He told us all that he was special
Said one day he’d be king of the world and boss of the UK
Then in just a few years time he had… Ruled all the common people
Lied and cheated the common people too
Fooled lots of common people
Fooled lots of common people
Like you
Oh what else could we do
All his lies, just who knew?

All you UK citizens who are also Irish citizens or could apply to be so, do you realise that this awful nationality and borders bill that government is about to try and make law has the potential to remove your citizenship should the Home Secretary decide to? Everyone who qualifies or could be made to seem as if they qualify for a second citizenship could have their UK citizenship removed at the whim of the Home Secretary.

Apparently you are a citizen if the Home Secretary says so and not by right.

Liz Truss must apologise and repeal this misspent public money. She should then resign or be fired. Liz Truss has misspent public money. Guess what, a government department lied about it.

The latest @ONS weekly data shows 8.1% of year 7-11 have tested +ve for COVID. Yes, schools are hubs of infection. We have made them so: no masks, bubbles, rapid testing, etc. To say they are not is & was bizarre. Why on earth have PHE persisted with this crap theory? 1/2 It is no coincidence that this number is so extraordinarily high. It didn’t need to be this way. These kids could have all been vaccinated at least once by now. They could be protected by mask-wearing, improved ventilation, etc. But none of that is true. This is a scandal. 2/2

I think it is time to demand an apology of those promoting this wibble. Rational scientists, no not you anti-vaxx for adolescents asshats, need to speak up, do so loudly, demand apologies and that this nonsense pre-print be removed. Now will be soon enough.

‘The government and its senior officials claim Covid should be regarded as similar to influenza and that we have to “learn to live with it”.’

This is a ‘plan’ to allow them to ignore COVID and do next to nothing, as now. theguardian.com/commentisfree/… ‘The delay in vaccinating young people is all the more surprising given that the government and their advisers have put all of their eggs into the vaccination basket.’

Sumption is talking nonsense on radio 4. He is denying most COVID deaths are from COVID. He is making the nonsense argument that most people die with COVID. This is an utter falsehood. He should never be interviewed again, since when he is interviewed it misinforms the public. Approximately 90% of people with COVID on their death certificates (>150,000 people) have it identified as the underlying cause of death. For comparison, the equivalent for flu is approx 10%.

Unfreedom Day

Stop all the clocks, put away your smartphone,
Unfreedom day is coming, more grieving must be borne,
Who will silence the fools and muffle the spin?
Bring out the coffins, untruth did win. The many liars love their lying,
But the truth is clear, 'Our Country is Dead'.
“Keep the lies simple, repeat, they’ll accept”.
The Leave liars won, all has been wrecked.

Bugger logic, apparently. That Nissan staying, after receiving £61million in 2019 and £100million or so in 2021 onwards from UK government & an £80million spend by Sunderland council on infrastructure, is portrayed as some sort of Leave victory does indeed bugger logic. If my numbers are right, and assuming there is not additional government funding hidden, that’s about £40K per job we have spent to keep Nissan in Sunderland. I am not an economist but I think it fair to say that that is bad economics for the UK. Good for Nissan though.

There is a long list of times that Mr Johnson has spoken to the Commons and presented ‘facts’ which were not and are still uncorrected. He has very clearly broken the ministerial code which explicitly states that ‘errors’ should be corrected at the earliest moment. A selection of Mr Johnson’s untruths are here. There are many more.
Surely he has broken the ministerial code and should go. How could he not have? These are not corrected. They are wrong. He should have corrected himself to Parliament.

UK government accused of distorting findings of judicial review inquiry

“I would have more confidence in the government’s consultation if, in its eagerness to use the panel’s conclusions as a springboard, it had not begun by mischaracterising them.” theguardian.com/law/2021/mar/1… ‘The minister’s foreword to the consultation claims that the panel identified a growing tendency for the courts to review the merits of decisions, and to replace the reasoning of decision-makers with their own.’

UK applies to join trans-Pacific trade group ft.com/content/000afd… via @financialtimes ‘Britain’s application to join a trade group in the Pacific while ending free trade with the EU — Brexit has spawned vast amounts of trade red tape and border controls — is one of the apparent paradoxes of UK trade policy.’

It’s not a paradox. It’s stupid.

COVID is airborne. Don’t go inside unless there is no alternative. If you work from an office, should you be?

Government, a business declaring itself safe because it has spaced its employees out more than before and has hand gel is insufficient.
