As the government in London announce a four day festival of royal nonsense next year to celebrate 70 years of Lizzy, a survey of young people has shown that more people are in favour of a republic than want a monarchy. No wonder… look at the state of that in the lum hat!
Mr Kwarteng was asked whether he would advise people struggling to pay their fuel bills to wear another woolly jumper and pair of socks.
“It’s up to people – it’s amazing how different people’s cold thresholds can be very different,” he said.
“Some people feel comfortable wrapped up in lots of different clothes, others wear relatively little.
“I think people should be sensible. I think people should do what they feel comfortable.”
The Business Secretary was unable to guarantee there will be no interruptions to gas supply this winter.
Wasn’t it Edwina Currie, back in the day, who said that old people who were cold should wear woolly hats?
Oh, how we laughed.
(Mind you she also said that good Christian people didn’t get AIDS. Regrettably, she forbore to pontificate upon whether or not these good Christian slept with a married prime minister…although to be fair, that was before she was found out).
Interesting article about job losses in the UK following Brexit. The one that particularly caught my eye was AstraZeneca moving to a €300 million facility in Dublin.
You may remember the hapless Annie Wells criticising our government for calling the vaccine AstraZeneca (weird when you consider that that is its name).
She insisted that it was called OXFORD AstraZeneca, emphasising the Britishness of it all.
Somewhat embarrassingly, she was bombarded with tweets showing photographs of boxes of the vaccine with no mention of Oxford.
Maybe Ms Wells will now start calling it Dublin AstraZeneca?
