Look at the Kate Burley COVID party - the whistleblowers apparently sent the photos to The Sun who decided against publishing the story 🤔

There is something about that Lady that I really dislike. Her interview style sucks and she thinks she is super-smart with her style.

Certainly made me smile when she took the wrap. Let's also hope the Love Islander gets a year in a Barbados jail too - it'll make her time in the "Love Island villa prison" seem like a walk in the park.

My predictions

* Vaccine roll out will be slower than expected due to various hitches, and conspiracy theorists not taking in, so covid goes down, but not anywhere near enough for life to get back to normal
* Donald Trump will commit suicide after coming face to face with the legal consequences of his actions, and the collapse of his business empire which will be revealed as a massive fraud propped up by dubious loans
* Brexit will not go away.

I did not expect the queues through Kent with brexit, because few hauliers sent trucks. But already I have customers having massive problems sending stuff from UK to EU. One got all his stuff returned by DPD because a missing zero from the EORI number. Until DPD stopped shipping totally. I have others who found that their stuff got charged customs tariffs, because much of the clothing they sell is not 40% UK and so the EU considers it non UK and charges the prevailing rate of duty for whatever country it came from. Therefore at present it is only economic to ship big high value orders to the EU, the paperwork and proof of origin for small consumer and small business orders or one or two items will basically stop, unless there is a new deal with more lenient rules. Bigger companies will just set up in the EU, so they import direct. Small vendors won't be able to, so they will just give up the EU business.

The current deal isn't viable long term because the UK had to basically agree to change nothing to get what little access it had, but still faces huge non-tariff barriers to access. So it will either realize no benefit and walk away totally, or more likely, keep talking and have to make more concessions. Likely end point is single market deal, with all that goes with it.

Shelves still nice and full here in the EU though!

Who could have guessed, introducing trade friction (where none existed before) with your largest trading partner might not be a great idea. I'm curious how Brexiters who banged on about Project Fear are adjusting to reality. Perhaps through absolute denial (the John Redwood approach).

Vaccine roll out looks like a good shout. I think I'd add in some sort of added piece around lots more poor people dying first, before getting access to a vaccine.
Shit the bed, Martyrdom for Trump. It's a really interesting shout, he'd die knowing the shitstorm he'd leave behind and the conspiracy theorists wouldn't ever need to buy viagra.

Couldn't give a shit about Brexit just yet to be quite honest. The costs of Covid are going to be more significant in the near future than anything Brexit can throw up.

On the plus side, fish (albeit the stuff Brits generally don't like to eat) is going to be cheap. Really cheap.

Much healthier and could do a thing or two to combat the obesity crisis, which is a prime factor behind the massive surge in hospitalisation. Something like 80% of hospitalised COVID patients are classified obese.

No, this is true. I'd probably find a way to meat them half way though.

Maybe they could throw a lobster and a couple of langoustines into these £30 food hampers for disadvantaged children that apparently have £5 of actual food in them.
