Dominic Cummings says he drove to Barnard Castle to test his eyesight]Dominic Cummings says he drove to Barnard Castle to test his eyesight

Cummings tested his eyesight on innocent co-drivers and their families to make sure he can safely drive his own family. Can I test Remdesivir on his children, because I'm planning to use it on my cat if she gets corona?

I think that Boris is pining for the old days when Jeremy was Labour leader. Keir Starmer is a different ball game.,

"Diners are to be given a £10-a-meal government discount to eat in restaurants this August, while VAT on the hospitality sector will be slashed from 20% to 5% until next January, chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced."
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/p ... 07876.html

I wonder if this is their line of though: 1 in 4 adults in the UK struggles more or less to afford food, giving the desperate ones restaurant vouchers will increasing the infection rate in this group, and will slightly reduce the deficit which almost doubled from Covid-benefits (it's now £60 mln, afaik).

Well, when you have a god to fear, you are supposed to do whatever you’re supposed to do. Whether his name is Demonic, Dominic, Boris or Donald. Killing people is just the cost of fearing your god.

"The Archbishop of Canterbury was criticised for banning priests from entering their own churches during the lockdown. He replied by saying that “praying in church buildings … could not be considered an essential service”"

I think the guy is an atheist?

"The future prime minister argued that the imposition of the ban was "not about cruelty" but "a Marxian attack" by the Labour government on the upper class."

This is his big wide harse. Tip. This is the threelipoleum boyne grouching down in the living detch. This is aninimyskilling inglis, this is a scotcher grey, this is a davy, stoop-ing.
