In Britain – what some might call, ahem, the Mainland – there are garages where they ain’t got no more petrol – pubs with no beer, you might say. Shelves in supermarkets are increasingly bare. Is this a consequence of Covid, or a consequence of Brexit? Or neither, or both?
Over 100,000 children in the south are waiting to have ear tests, eye tests – there is a massive backlog owing to Covid. This may have a terrible effect on their development. Can anything be done?
Angela Rayner, deputy leader of the British Labour Party, has allegedly called B Johnson’s cabinet ‘scum’. Should she have used that word? Is political discourse coarsening?
The rate of death from Covid in the North is twice, three times that in the south. How come? Incompetence? Or is the anti-vax lobby bigger and bolder in this political backwater?
And finally : is Sir Keir Starmer a real person or a card-board cut-out?
