My daughter's test result has just come back negative (22hr turn around).

What a huge relief. The modern world has indeed changed. I hope it is for the better.

I gather that Radio 4 was going to rename Today in Politics to Todays U Turn, but on reflection have gone for the altogether snappier Toadies U Turn.

How many more times can Bozo do the following:

- Reset
- Take Control
- Take Back Control
- Recalibrate
- Clear the air
- Send a clear message
- etc etc

In terms of the 'Whose Bunker most resembles Adolph's in 1945' competition between Boris and Donald, Donald is leading because he at least has mindless lackies in his. Boris only has Princess No Nuts.

Populism is bumping up against reality.

Whatever they do next, one can be pretty sure it'll be "robust," like all their other failures.
