Is it sexist to be concerned about the poor women?
at 08:01 25 Feb 2020

I feel a particular outrage about the way these vulnerable (due to the economics of the workplace as well as being put down socially) people have had their lives worsened and shortened since George Osborne and his successors came to the Treasury, more so than I do about men in the same position.

It's not just an English thing either (although no doubt the SNP say they have had their hands tied by Westminster):

Damn right I've got the blues
at 10:27 24 Feb 2020

As emotional support I doubt whether many would disagree that music is more reliable than football and I know we have a few blueshounds drop into TWTD from time to time so I thought I would recommend this watch. I f anyone has a couple of hours to spare in the next week:

If you do miss it I also noticed quite a few other programmes featuring venerable blues musicians on the Arena strand, but this one has Jack Black from The White Stripes using a sewing machine.

[edit] Meant to add that it is amazing to me that the amplifier has only been around on this Earth for less than one hundred and ten years. And the programme dates from 2016, missed it first time around but glad I caught it now.

So, XR, there's mud in your...errr...bank
at 18:17 17 Feb 2020

Digging up a university lawn in Cambridge and then carting the mud in wheelbarras to the nearest branch of Barclays is less extreme than trying to stop the city but does it help or hinder the cause?

It is to do with Trinity turning a farm in Trimley St. Mary into a lorry park for Felixstowe Port.

I'm not saying that Lambert should get the push, but...
at 16:50 13 Feb 2020

What if Joe Royle could be persuaded to take him out on the lash tomorrow night, get him into the most positive of 'they score five, fine, we'll score six' moods. Then deposit the squad in a freshly dug earthen tunnel, actually make them dig it, and at ten to three on Saturday Royle drops Lambert off at the ground and Lambert goes to the mouth of the tunnel to start his team talk with 'Come on lads, we can win this'...

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
at 07:51 31 Jan 2020

Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

For the few of us who are keeping an eye on Iranian affairs

https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/mystification-qassem-soleimani-2001260

With the usual caveat about where Al Jazeera's sympathies might lie I still found this an illuminating background piece to recent events.

As an aside, I was surprised to see an apparent joint effort by Putin and Merkel towards repatriation of the remains of those who lost their lives in the Ukrainian airliner reported here in Japan, not sure that got much coverage in the United Kingdom.
