This is My England, And Yours: Reclaiming Englishness
@peterjukes @Daisybelll Back in 2019 over 250 UK companies were thinking of moving to the Netherlands and other EU countries...How many have since left the UK.
The field of exit strategies appears to be:
1) Vaccinate the elderly, open up in February (“focussed protection”)
2) Vaccinate all at risk, open up after Easter, allow COVID to be endemic in the young (“endemic”)
3) maximal suppression, vaccinate all and eliminate COVID
What are our options to exit the UK pandemic?
Compared to 2020, we have new tools (vaccines) and we have new challenges (mutation)?
We also have a years worth of international experience to look at.
So what’s the best way out?

Oh, and since my fondness for strong women is for some reason in my timeline, here’s my mother - adopted, orphaned by 18, had five kids, adopted a sixth, and brought us all up with very little help from any men https://twitter.com/mdg1122/status/1353396165610504192
Loved re-reading this moving beautifully written article by @peterjukes “quintessential thing about England: it’s not an ethnicity, it’s a culture – an incredibly wide and varied culture” with “an outward-looking fascination other cultures and countries” #bylinetimes https://twitter.com/bylinetimes/status/1353365369348526081

I'm not a needy wee person. So maybe I just don't get it. But the way the right wing UK press salivate (or more) over the Biden-Johnson phone call strikes me as... er... desperately insecure, if not embarassingly pathetic?!
Drip drip drip: Brexit problems, damage, loss. As we said many times: not so much a sudden armageddon; instead 10,000 slow and painful wounds. Every one of which HMG will make up excuses [lies] about / Brexit Loons will blame on their Deep State-Remain Traitor-EUSSR conspiracy.
"Business secretary confirms post-Brexit review of UK workers rights". Having spent months denouncing "bullying" EU for demanding "unreasonable" safeguards against "ridiculous" allegations of UK deregulation. Those level playing field powers might be needed sooner than we thought
So Boris Johnson now believes political debate should be "kind and civil". Does that mean he'll apologise to the many vulnerable social groups & minorities he mocked and vilified over the years? To say nothing of the xenophobic abuse his lie-fuelled Leave campaign has provoked?
UK Government was warned about exactly this problem over & over & over again. They deliberately and consciously chose to do nothing. This isn't some unfortunate error. This is "hostile environment continued". How these bstrds sleep at night is beyond me.
NHS worker stuck in Kenya as settled status documents are rejected
Officials at Nairobi airport say Home Office documents issued to Doreen Kathambi are not valid
UK fishing, we were told = among biggest supporters of Leave & greatest beneficiaries of Johnson's Brexit. So if UK fishing now feels royally fkd by Leave lies & Tory betrayal, just imagine how rest of us feel treated after years of Leave contempt & Tory extremism. Unity at last.
Thanks @FIDE2021 & @EulawLive for including me in this super discussion. Pity not to be in The Hague, of course, but hopefully I'll be back again in the glorious NL, to see my good EU colleagues & friends, ASAP.
Our third Podcast @FIDE2021 conversation is now available, with @mdouganlpool, Michal Bobek and @AnnaWallerman discussing current issues of EU law enforcement in national courts. Don't miss it at @EulawLive, on Spotify and also in our website here https://eulawlive.com/podcast/fide-conversation-on-eu-law-and-national-courts-with-michal-bobek-michael-dougan-and-anna-wallerman/ #eulaw
Just as former SAGE members formed an independent group to hold government to account. Why can't we form a group so large we can't be ignored. Our own independent alternative government so to speak. Just a stupid late night thought! Or is it?
Should the choice Proportional representation be taken out of the hands of the political parties?
Everyone that expects politicians & a political resolve to this problem need to think outside the box. It is clear over the last 5 years politics has failed us all with dire consequences. Politicians need to work for us, as they are meant to, but we need to step up too.
Vorsprung durch Brexit! Multi Billionaires press control by vermin that don't even pay UK tax. This needs to be tackled too.
They finally did it. They blamed Germany for Brexit. The circle of life is complete.
This corrupt government have not just blighted our lives with their cronyism, deception & deceit, they have brought death, misery & ruin.
This political landscape failed us all. It is time for us to make a difference. It won't be easy, but it has to be done. #CorruptToriesOut
