Dido Harding - with a budget of a staggering £12 billion delivers a broken track & trace phone app.

Please let that number sink in ~ £12 billion 😳

Just think of what good that money could have done to improve the NHS or subsidise struggling businesses.

£12 billion :shock: :shock: :shock:

More hand waving from Johnson in the press conference. I think it is good that schools etc are remaining open but I fear that a month's lockdown with them open won't be enough. It took three months of lockdown with schools closed in spring but this is winter and the stamina challenged population is getting weary of complying.

Lockdown won't be ending 2 December.

Funny how if there's an inch of snow they have to close schools, but in the middle of a deadly pandemic they insist on keeping them open.

It's easy to pick holes in johnsons covid policies. But I thank fuck it ain't me making desions and it ain't a labour government.

There only 1 way out of this.

He's managed to do all the right things, at all the wrong times.

It's a high price to pay to kick out the Tories, though.

I think they will ditch him before the next GE, but the damage is probably already done.

I think he wil go well before he is pushed and most likely sooner than later.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

He was given the job to bumble, burble mumble and mither his way through delivering Brexit. Nobody predicted the pandemic and he is simply not equipped to deal with it. He can't cope fully with one major task, let alone two major disasters. Even his own MPs say he's "not a details man," while the rest of us are often not quite so kind. He can't cope with long briefs and refuses to read them, and by "long briefs" I mean anything over one side of foolscap - double spaced, obviously. If it's longer than that he just sends it back, unread. Cummings has actually instructed people not to send him anything longer than one page, no matter what the subject, if they actually expect him to read it.

What do our PM and a tortoise on top of a fence post have in common?

#1 - You know neither of them could have got there on their own
#2 - Neither of them belongs there.
#3 - They have no idea what to do now that they're there.
#4 - They are both elevated above their ability to function.
#5 - You can't imagine who actually thought it was a good idea to put either of them there in the first place.

Put my tortoises in hibernation a few weeks ago. Wish someone could do the same with Johnson. :lol:

In today's media mad world it's no surprise to see a "personality" chosen to front a political party and I could live with that if they had a first class cabinet to actually carry out the job of running of the country but his cabinet is the worst I can recall. They really are clueless, I mean Liz Truss as your secretary of trade, Hancock in charge of anything, I could go on, one by one but individually and collectively they are a useless bunch of fuckwits and the damage caused by their inability to do their jobs will still be felt in 2030s 😕
