Our latest trip is nearly over.
We catch our flight home from our trip to Menorca tomorrow morning. It's been ok but a bit windy. I found out about an Admiral Byng when I was here. When we get home from this trip we need to start preparing for our actual holiday to Costa Rica next February. Just think, by then all the kerfuffle about Brexit will be...

Another great money saving tip:
Don't waste money on an alarm clock that you might forget to set.

Instead, buy a house where the mail is delivered at the time you want to get up. The neighbourhood dogs will then serenade you to joyful wakefulness when the postman arrives.

So why not select all public office holders in a similar way? Have some qualifying criteria and randomly select from among the eligible. Of course, the hard part is agreeing the criteria but it can't be impossible. Serving in Parliament or on a local council or whatever would then become a public duty rather than a...

Is China a communist country?
It claims communism
It has a nice communist flag
It has a "people's" army

Of course, the hard part is agreeing the criteria but it can't be impossible. Serving in Parliament or on a local council or whatever would then become a public duty rather than a prize to be contested between those who crave power for its own sake. The career politicians would thus be relegated to the position of trying to influence the office holders but have no actual power, just as lawyers can't deliver a verdict but instead have to convince those who can.

Boris is now following Trump's lead in claiming that he didn't say something that he said, even though video footage of the statement is still on line.

2 days ago, in Rotherham, Boris was confronted about his statement made live on LBC back in March where he said that money spent on historical child abuse cases was "spaffed up against the wall". Boris claimed that isn't what he said. But, it clearly is.

What is the point of such a stupid lie? Does he really think people are incapable of looking at the original footage?

I believe the hangman's noose is a perfectly reasonable punishment and should be used for the worst of Britain's criminals.

What's your opinion?
