It's like those investigative reports on convicted serial killers, where they dredge up old photos... :tea:

I have watched "Unsolved Mysteries" on Netflix. It's a documentary series with unsolved murder cases. They present the full case really carefully by showing what happened in what order, what evidence was found, and so on.

But then suddenly there is one episode where you have people saying they were allegedly kidnapped by aliens...

Higher education in the UK is morally bankrupt. I’m taking my family and my research millions, and I’m off
After 25 years I feel Britain has broken my trust. I’m one of many academics who now see their future in Europe
You cant blame them.

Covid-19 has exposed the reality of Britain: poverty, insecurity and inequality
Only a fairer society can lay the foundations for economic recovery, and build resilience to future crises

After the catastrophe of the past eight months, a new political consensus seems to be emerging. The government has to get a tighter grip of the country and the crisis we are facing. Taking back control now means that Boris Johnson must change his management style. Instead of remaining an aloof chairman of his government, he must become its hands-on chief executive.

Ministers need to discover misplaced competence – from the reopening of schools to securing a Brexit deal (or preparing for no deal), and from reigniting a beleaguered economy to supporting the tens of thousands of people who will lose their jobs when the furlough scheme ends. And Covid-19 will have to be kept in check through a judicious mix of personal hygiene measures, physical distancing, mask-wearing, testing, quarantine and targeted short-term lockdowns.

But none of these measures recognise the true scale of the social pathology underlying Britain’s national crisis. They do not constitute a strategy for national revival, or offer a long-term vision for our nation. And they do not deliver any prospect for hope and regeneration, let alone the promise of “levelling up” the country.
A no-deal Brexit will not help.

I'll let the guessing game run for another 24 hours, or so. First correct answer wins 20 internets, second gets 10 and all subsequent ones win 5. You can guess as many times as you like, but only your first on each photo can win internets.

Perv wins 20 internets. I am second from the left, front row in the first photo.
Sean Hayden wins 20 internets. I am third from the right, second row in the second photo.

With that it's back to the regular program - Scot Dutchy's yammerfest about the UK.
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

Of course you are. I just looked for a young David Gilmour.

The escalating delinquency of Boris Johnson and his gang of blue anarchists
What kind of Tory government jeopardises the union and tears up the rule of law?

For people who present themselves as super-patriots, Boris Johnson and his coterie at Number 10 have a craze for despoiling everything that the world once regarded as the best of British. The independence of the judiciary, the success of the BBC, the impartiality of the civil service and the authority of parliament - all have been bricked and bottled by the blue anarchists. When the Tory leader tried his prorogation stunt last autumn, he was even prepared to taint the position of the Queen by giving her illegal advice. Now their delinquency has escalated to explicitly tearing up the rule of law. That foundation stone of British democracy and lodestar of our country’s international reputation, the principle that once had no more passionate champion than the Conservative party, is no longer safe from them.
Indeed.
