Well who is really bothered; The British government?

Get over your obsession. How many new cases of Covid in the Netherlands today?
You see you have not got a clue. You are so fucking thick you cannot understand anything. It is not about official numbers but what happens to them. A case is just that a case, someone who got tested. Big deal. How many end up in hospital? Or in IC. Really pathetic.

Scot and rainbow, please confine your arguments to the issues themselves rather than indulging yourselves in personal attacks.

Brexit: barristers question selection of legal team leading UK drive to override deal
Critics say advice should have been sought from lawyers without views on EU debate

The government is facing increasing scrutiny over its decision to use “committed Brexiteer” lawyers to provide advice on the legality of breaching the EU withdrawal agreement.

On Saturday, the attorney general, Suella Braverman QC, who chaired the annual general meeting of the Bar Council that represents barristers in England and Wales, faced repeated criticism over her role as the government’s chief legal adviser, according to those present.

Jessica Simor QC, the vice-chair of the council’s EU law committee, asked Braverman why “in the light of the extremely serious matters at issue, such advice [was not] sought from Treasury counsel, Sir James Eadie QC?”

Instead, she said, an opinion was sought from Guglielmo Verdirame QC, a professor of law at King’s College London, Richard Ekins, a professor of law and constitutional government at Oxford University, and Richard Howell, a barrister at Brick Court chambers in London.

The involvement of Verdirame, Ekins and Howell in advising the government was first revealed by the Guardian.

No! I am Spartacus.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Boris called XR an "organised criminal gang" for peacefully picketing a newspaper distribution warehouse, but if you use the powers of state to enact a law that allows you to break the law you're a patriot, apparently.

That's disgraceful! :lay:

Based on my experience of XR in Oz, it's just so wrong to use the term "organised"!

It is disgraceful Jim. But it keeps the conversation focused on the presumed low-character of activists, even as it was leaked today that the UK armed forces are drawing up contingency plans for a possible 3.5°C rise in global temperatures by 2050.

Tory cronies are squeezing the UK on everything.

'Alternative to Irish backstop' consultant in line for £200m contract
Exclusive: Shanker Singham was one of key experts involved in non-government Alternative Arrangements Commission

A consultant who had a leading role in the campaign for an alternative to Theresa May’s Irish border “backstop” is in the running for all or part of a £200m government contract related to the post-Brexit checks down the Irish Sea.

Shanker Singham, one of the main proponents of the so-called “alternative arrangements” for the Irish border, is understood to have teamed up with the customs expert Robert Hardy and the technology company Fujitsu for the Trader Support Service (TSS) contract.

The contract, the first of the Brexit spoils in Northern Ireland, was put out to tender in the summer with the appointment announced in time for implementation in September.

Deloitte and the Institute of Export are also believed to have been involved in bids. None of the parties would comment because they are in a legally binding “standstill” period under government procurement rules.

Johnson once again makes a famous U-turn.

Brexit: Boris Johnson makes fresh concession to Tory rebels
Parliament will be asked to override withdrawal agreement only if Northern Ireland protocol is undermined, says No 10

Downing Street has clarified that it would ask parliament to support using powers to override parts of the Brexit withdrawal agreement only if the EU undermines the “fundamental purpose” of the Northern Ireland protocol.

Boris Johnson brokered a deal with Conservative rebels on Wednesday to see off a potential party revolt, agreeing to grant MPs a vote before invoking powers in the UK internal market bill that would break international law by breaching the EU withdrawal agreement.

In a fresh concession to rebels, No 10 published a policy paper on Thursday setting out the circumstances in which it would use the powers, as well as confirming that the government would also seek to use the dispute resolution mechanisms in the withdrawal agreement at the same time.

The government’s deal with backbenchers, a group of whom were supporting senior Tory MP Sir Bob Neill’s amendment to give parliament a veto over use of the measures in the bill, came on Wednesday hours after the resignation of Lord Keen, the UK government’s law officer for Scotland

Well Johnson needs a Trump win:

Angry Tory MPs reject Joe Biden's comments on UK-EU Brexit talks
Trade deal with US not possible if UK undermines Good Friday agreement, Democrats say


Conservative MPs have reacted angrily to an intervention by Joe Biden, the US Democratic presidential candidate, in the UK Brexit talks, accusing him of ignorance of the Northern Ireland peace process.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Biden warned the UK there would be no US-UK free trade agreement if the Brexit talks ended with the Good Friday agreement being undermined. He tweeted: “We can’t allow the Good Friday agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit.

“Any trade deal between the US and UK must be contingent upon respect for the agreement and preventing the return of a hard border. Period.”

His intervention was welcomed by Richard Neal, the chairman of Congress’s ways and means committee.

The backlash was led by the former cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith, who told the Times: “We don’t need lectures on the Northern Ireland peace deal from Mr Biden. If I were him I would worry more about the need for a peace deal in the US to stop the killing and rioting before lecturing other sovereign nations.”
As if IDS has room to talk.
