markerSelective Greeting
A ski resort in Switzerland has amended its "Welcome to Verbier" sign with the addition of "Unless You Are Britisch". The new strain of the Chinese plague, which was detected in Britain first only because our nerds are doing variety checks, has got the Swiss really spooked. Even though it is all over the place.

boneheadmarkerNothing changes
Local councils are cutting budgets for essential services like road gritting and care of the elderly & children in order to continue to spend on the usual trivia such as climate change impact confections & carbon reduction scams.

marker A new shop is opening in Romiley's central Precinct, replacing the photographic business which gave up. Another barbershop to go with the half dozen or so already not trading due to plague restrictions. Wonderful business plan.

markerBound to be a hell of a lot more in reality
The quango which hands out legal aid to the unworthy has self-guestimated that it wasted £20 MILLION of taxpayers' cash in the last financial year. No members of the Legal Aid Authority, however, have been sacked, demoted or reduced in pay grade.

markerNaked Self-Interest
The priest in charge of a church @ Whitby has upset the local tourism industry by handing out leaflets rubbishing the vital Dracula Connection and plugging St. Hilda instead.

bulletQ: How can you be classed as black even if you have no ancestral connection with Africa and you don't want to be put in this category?
bulletA: Be a member of the National Education Union, which wants schools to be kept closed and unoccupied members to be kept on full pay, and which makes blackness a compulsory choice on political grounds.

SNP logomarkerRank dishonesty in politics
An independent nation @ the heart of the EbloodyU?
Or a small client country on the fringes living off the charity of Germans and Hollanders?

Far Queue symbol The teaching unions and their Labour party cronies are being accused of trying to embed a new epidemic of education poverty.

National polls have revealed that the number of likely plague vaccine refusers is just 8%. Which means that rounding them up and isolating them in a tent encampment surrounded by armed guards on Dartmoor is still a practical proposition.

bulletQ: How much extra time off do you get if you have to work one lousy day extra, which may be WFH?
bulletA: If you're an MP, a week off.

bulletQ: What do you get if you vote to leave the EbloodyU?
bulletA: Burrocraps trough-scoffing for 1,600 and some days.

Knee of Grace President MacRon of France has promised that there will be no 'unjustifiable delays' in arranging plague vaccinations for his customers. Translation: The usual suspects will get them first and the usual obstructionism will keep the peasants at the back of the queue.

tick symbol Heavy goods vehicles are flooding through the Channel Tunnel now that the French have put an end to their gratuitous obstructionism. The Chunnel operators seem to be quite optimistic that there won't be a permanent bottleneck due to Brexit.
   The Britisch boycott of everything French, except for Crême de Cassis, continues.

bullet New migrants entering Britain from the EbloodyU will not be able to claim benefits here until 2026, which gives us a bit of a break.

arrow headmarker The EbloodyU's nightmare has become reality. Countries like Switzerland are using our Brexit deal as a starting point for future negotions on trade with the dead hand of Eurocrazy. And they are specifying that Bollocks to Barnier does not come within 200 miles of the meetings.

marker There is enuff plague vaccine in the UK for our immediate needs but there are lotz of other ways to slow down or sabotage the national immunization programme.

Various vaccines, which cost taxpayers over £10 million, were wasted last year due to NHS staff in England not putting them in a fridge, leaving fridge doors open or switching fridges off. Which doesn't give us much confidence for the campaign to come against the Chinese plague.

Far Queue symbol Professor Gloom-Whilty is cheering us up with promises that vaccine shortages will sabotage the anti-plague vaccination campaign.

Kerching! In order to raise maximum fine revenue from cameras on motorways, the Transport Department and Police England are working hard on software which will allow tailgaters to be identified and issued with a fixed penalty ticket automatically.

bulletQ: Are the people who question the way NHS burrocraps are handling the plague vaccination campaign out of the same box as anti-vaxxers?
bulletA: Actually, it's the burrocraps who obstruct recruitment of vaccination volunteers and cock up the supply of vaccines who are serving the anti-vaxx cause mightily.

hello!marker The teenage president of Canada, J. Trudeau, has been forced to sack the Viceroy, whom he appointed on a whim in 2017. Canadian former astronaut J. Payette stands accused of swearing @ wonks and creating a house of horrors @ her official residence in Ottawa, the nation's capital, as those who view CFL home matches featuring the Redblacks are constantly reminded.
   HM The Queen is reported not to be looking forward to Trudeau's next candidate with any enthusiasm. Especially if it's Prince Hairy, who seems to be in favour with Trudeau.

markerFocus on the Important People?
Scary CarriePresident Boris is going to fix one of his women problems by filling his Cabinet with females at the next reshuffle. The other problem will be harder to fix.
   The woman in charge of the Commons equalities committee is complaining that the government is failing to engage with one-half of the electorate by not putting female ministers on TV in political shows.
   But if women won't watch blokes, it's only fair to expect men not to watch women on TV. Thus one-half of the population will remain disengaged. But the woman in charge of the committee doesn't seem bothered by this.

markerReckless ambition
The SNP regime in Scotland has decided to waste English taxpayers' money on an independence referendum of no significance just 7 years after the one that was supposed to be it for a generation.
   Wee Beesom is hoping to stage her event after the Scottish Parliament elections in May.
reader comment“Let us hope someone reminds the Scots that an independent Scotland won't meet the basic conditions for joining the EU, as Wee Bee is pretending it could, and living standards there will be halved if they make Wee Bee their president and lose subsidies from England. But if our Scittish friends okay with that, bye-eeee!” Helvet Puzig

Far Queue symbol The management of the Royal Britisch Legion is in trouble for blowing £100K of donations given for the support & welfare of former members of the armed services on a new logo designed especially for the tiny screen of a pocket phone.
   That said, the new logo is very good. But it's definitely not worth a hundred grand.

markerNot impressed
The universal victim culture is still going strong. Despite gorbal warming and last year being claimed as one of the hottest in the whole history of The Universe, we're being told that some places in the south of England had their greatest snowfall for two years.
   Two bloody years! What sort of time-scale is that for claiming any sort of weather record? Sheer bloody victimhood/mopery.

A professor, who is part of Jabberwoky, the government's advisory panel on vaccination & immunization, reckons that the BMA's complaints are fake news based on premature opionionation.

markerOfficial! Australia's handling of locko & quarantine is dystopian. This description is expected to travel around the world and be applied to the governments of other nations @ least as quickly as the Chinese plague was spread.

Lies, damned lies & von Leyen
Far Queue symbolThe source of the problem is that the EbloodyU placed its order for the Oxford vaccine 3 months after the British government's order but it expects to take delivery right away despite being at the back of the queue.
   Typical EbloodyU. Queues don't Xist if the EFU isn't at the front of them.
   Further, the EbloodyU has been dragging its feet over approving the Oxo vaxo for use on its customers, but that hasn't stopped it trying to hi-jack all production of it in Britain.

Below the line mission statement: Some of the above is true.
   We are constantly exposed to dodgy conclusions drawn from dodgy data by the 'experts', especially those found in the world of politics and especially those at the Treasury and in opposition.
