    How many newspapers are reporting on the empty shelves in France? You'd think the DM would be all over that if it were true, or even if it weren't.

    It's all over social media...

    Seriously, this is just something heard, not proven. But, it makes sense that if you're selling chemicals you don't want the extra hassle of sending them through customs barriers, and when you anticipate those barriers coming up, you're going to start looking for other customers.

    Like chlorine I guess. Doesn't Germany have a big chemical industry? I'm pretty sure they aren't being made here, or someone would have thought to fucking prioritise not having raw sewage in our rivers over something a bit less critical.

And I doubt it's really that high a number as a million. And most of those people never took it up because it's a shit job with shit hours with shit social life, and you might be replaced by a self-driving lorry in ten years anyways. £30k a year doesn't make that all worthwhile to most people, especially if you've left the UK and to come back you have to jump through all sorts of hoops or face Cruela Patel's firing squad.

    #StoolBrittania now trending lol.

    So the Tories seem to have figured out which way the wind was blowing on this, and voted for the amendment to stop the free flow of shit into waterways. The question now is where are the businesses going to get the chemicals to comply?

    Are we finally about to see the back of Boris "You leave 'im alone, 'e's doin' 'is best!" Johnson?

    DM turning on a Tory PM can't be a good sign for him.

    We already spoke about this. Low sample size, doesn't give any indication of the demographic breakdown of those polled. Worthless.

    Yesterday - Pakistani cricketer opening up about racist abuse he suffered when playing for Yorkshire, complaining about institutional racism within cricket.

    Today - same cricketer apologising for anti-Semitic tweets.

    Fucking hilarious.

    The more I see this kind of thing (people going back ten years to when the person was a teenager), the more smug I feel about deciding to not do any social media.

    Does make me wonder though. If I don't like somebody at work, I can now just go back through their posts and get them fired for something they said when they were 18.

    I mean... depends on the employer and what they did.
    Just make sure that not only your own online presence is squeaky clean, but that all your friends at the time didn't post anything that could be incriminating on you enough to get yourself fired.
    You can find any pattern you want to any level of precision you want, if you're prepared to ignore enough data.

    I usually have sympathy for people who get pulled up on historical tweets and comments, but in this case, where he's publicly crying, literally, about historical racism, I can't help but see the funny side.

    Yeah, someone obviously wanted to play gotcha with the guy. I'm just glad social media and/or mobile phones with cameras weren't around when I was 18, saying and doing stupid shit nearly every day.

    Step 1. Leave EU, making it harder to send refugees back to EU countries.

    Step 2. Complain EU isn't cooperating enough on refugees.

    https://twitter.com/hendopolis/statu...71605356437504

    Missed a few steps in-between there, like sending jetskis out to deter refugee boats (the idea here that it's hard to rescue a dozen drowning people on one jetski), make plans to use a wave machine to push refugee dinghies back to France, pass a law making it illegal to rescue drowning people if you know they're refugees, and of course the classic try to pass a law where anyone responsible for drowning a refugee is immune from prosecution.

    Today on "Boris": Boris attends a get together with his old newspaper chums, and gets asked about married life, to which he cracks that he's experiencing "buyer's remorse." The quote gets repeated in the New European, after which Boris' Director of Communications calls the NE and threatens to sue them. TLDR: They tell him to fuck off and the next day the PM's office reports that they deny the story but don't intend to sue (which is pretty much tantamount to admitting it's true and there's no basis for suing).

    Well played, Team Boris.
