Last of the sun. The sun setting. Setting on a dangerously messed up country.
Thought for the day.
A member of the UK Government resigned yesterday over broken promises. His description of the Government is enlightening bearing in mind that these things are usually framed in very polite and respectful language. Respectfully he described Boris Johnson’s Government as a “Cesspit” and “the most distrustful and awful environment” he had ever worked in.
My mind goes back to the brilliant tweet one brave official released from the official UK Government Civil Service account.
“Arrogant and offensive. Can you imagine having to work for these truth twisters…..”
Remember back when BBC News was a respected, independent agency. A highly respected BBC journalist (Eddie Mair) interviewed Johnson before he became our leader. An interview that the BBC has buried. It ended with the respected journalist concluding
“Making up quotes., lying to your party leader, wanting to be part of someone being physically assualted – you’re a nasty piece of work, aren’t you“
And people still will vote for them….
Staggering and frightening.
