I do hope Clara Ponsati gets the right decision today, although after the Bayoh case I am not as confident.

"What's come over Neil?" you ask, Hacka. Indeed, and I heard "Chrome Dome" Robinson having a right go at that bumptious little Weasel The Govester yesterday too. I think Old Tory Peter Oborne's withering fire on Beeb journos in particular for repeating Cummins' unattributed press releases without examination may be having some effect.

The LibDems seem to think other parties should stand aside for them in tight seats but not the other way around. A cynic would suggest Jaow Swensoan is doing favours for Boris in the hope of some payback after a hung parliament result in the GE. Coalition dreams and lovely limos? Surely not Cleggism all over again? But they wouldn't...they couldn't...could they?

It's a terrible thing, cynicism.

Careful now Tinto.

Boris has a word for that sort of behaviour, and I thought you only stared at trees 🤣

Someone should tell Miles Briggs 😛

New A&E figs have just been published. Bad news for UK govt (&patients). A&E target performance the worst ever. The target is 95% of patients to be seen within 4 hours. October 2019: 83.6% September 2019: 85.2% October 2018: 89.1% The 95% standard was last met in July 2015.
