Have a choice to Fly or Drive to the Alps in January. Part of me is thinking weather and time wise flying will be easier and quicker but....I kinda like the idea of driving but it looks like it's going to be 15 to 18 hours.
Anyone driven to around the Blanc/ Velan area at all during that time of year? Any advice, suggestions, stop offs etc etc etc
Covering the East Indian Company...worth a read if this is anyones cup of tea!
I'd forgotten just how much it controlled, everything from a private army larger than many at the time and controlling around 50% of global trade.....all from offices in London with around 20 to 30 staff!!!
"And Farah? What this decision means is all of his greatest achievements on the track were delivered under the tutelage of a coach who has been exposed as a cheat and a doper. That doesn't mean Farah cheated; there is no evidence he did. His judgement, though, will come under intense scrutiny."
Turgid first half...poor passing and a yard off the pace.
Garbutts free kick was a highlight but frankly we were pretty awful. Lambert recognised a back 3 wasnt working and was right to change it.
Not sure whether it's the early goal or the change in formation but the second half was so much better. More purpose and far better use of the ball. Chalk and cheese really.
Keys goal was sublime. Nolan was Johnny on the spot.
For me though....Jackson was MoM....he played so well. Poached his goal.....worked his socks off....linked up well....his cross for Judge was superb and in the dying embers of the 2nd half the his work in the corner beating 2 defenders to a ball and then holding them off summed up his day.
Cracking result...super 2nd half and still barely in 3rd gear.
So, today the Court decided, unanimously, that the proroguing of Parliament was within the purview of the Courts(regardless of the subsequent ruling it being illegal).
It sets a very clear precedent. That Courts can intervene where, before, they could not.
Is there a dark/ flip side to this? Parliament and Governments have a degree of freedom that others do not, for various (sometimes good) reasons. Whilst I welcome the outcome today - in the long term is there any reason why this would not be a good situation (in that Courts can now be involved in this going forward)?
I'm not talking about the legality of Johnson's proroguing but the fact it's now within the purview of the Courts.
