@ThreeWomen_ I don’t pin the responsibility of this government on the whole British people, no more than I would blame all Americans for Trump, all Israelis for Netanyahu, all Brazilians for Bolsonaro, all Russians for Putin, or all Indians for Modi
It’s quite amazing how the reputation of Britain in almost every sphere, from politics to medicine, has been trashed in four short years.
@ProtestantAve @andrewsbowie I’ve been checking these charts for weeks. And they don’t include our world beating ‘excess deaths’ — a better metric. If you enjoy burying your head in the sand, I suggest ostrich farming
“The UK now has more daily deaths from Covid than the rest of the entire EU put together.”

‘Wash our Hands’ is going to be Government Ministers mantra when it comes to the public inquiry into the UK’s ‘world beating’ catastrophic response to Coronavirus

Good to see published version of my analysis of Johnson's (Not So) Great (Not So) New Brexit (Ain't Really Done Yet) Deal. Inspired by HRH Cummings I's new decree on research ethics, I hope it's not too immodest of me to draw your attention to another trifling discovery of mine:
Gov: we're lying
Public: we know you're lying
Gov: we know you know we're lying, but we really couldn't care less
This isn't just some random slap in the face. It's another arrogant exaltation of raw power in a constitutional system with few checks on those happy to abuse it.
Basic view of friends watching us from outside: UK democracy already looking battered, but now... Cummings as King, Johnson as Royal Footstool, a Cabinet of Jesters, population as serfs & cannon-fodder. In that, but only that, sense: Cummings' situation is indeed "exceptional"?
Time for a quick loo break - responsibly, legally and with integrity.
Attention, all law students!
Apparently, we've been getting it wrong all these years / decades / centuries.
The *real* answer to the question, "is it legal?", *actually* is:
"Make up your own minds"
Boris Johnson said it, so it must be true.

Great Britain has become the laughing stock around the World. We are the butt of jokes and the envy of none. It is time to remove the Charlatans, cheats & liars.
