The Crazy Years, UK edition. At least America has some company now.

Time to move this off the COVID thread, I think. The citizen journalism being prompted is too good not to post though.

Russ with his excellent "This Week in Tory" sums things up better than I could attempt to:

It has at least been nice to see that our generally craven and corrupt tabloid press do in fact have a limit.

The Moving to Scotland guy is another fine source of non-bullshit op-eds.



Also he's an SF author apparently, so he's going in the bucket with Doctorow, Stross and Banks I guess.

A friend of mine was telling me a story passed along from someone who lives in Durham not far from Barnard Castle.

Apparently the local lord once hid in the castle instead of going out to battle and thus the phrase "a bit of Barney Castle" became local lingo describing "a shitty excuse", which is Just Perfect.

Annnd today we're fucking over the student nurses that risked their lives and careers to step up to the health crisis, because of course we are.


Jeremy Hunt probably isn't a new name to many readers, but he knows damn well this is 100% in character for his government and has done a huge amount during his career to make it this way.

Apparently the UK government is using Brexit legislation to allow them to pass new laws without a vote in parliament.

Legal experts are finding the legislation impossible to judge the constitutionality of, because it basically amounts to that note Ron Swanson wrote himself that says "I can do what I want".
