Couldn't agree with you more David. She gets a succession of top jobs with no qualifications whatsoever except who she is related to. See Private Eye Ad Infinitum.

The Ig Nobel Prize for Medical Education has been awarded to:
Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil, Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom, Narendra Modi of India, Andrés Manuel López Obrador of Mexico, Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus, Donald Trump of the USA, Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, Vladimir Putin of Russia, and Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow of Turkmenistan, for using the Covid-19 viral pandemic to teach the world that politicians can have a more immediate effect on life and death than scientists and doctors can.

She's a McKinsey alumnus which explains a lot I think. I see they've given the job to KPMG for six months now. We're saved. . . :smile:

From the Obituary notice for Harold Evans on the BBC website.

He was passionate about newspaper journalism to the end, saying in his 2009 memoirs My Paper Chase: "It's endlessly fascinating to me how the tumult of the world can be made comprehensible by the orderly calibration of values within the discipline of the printed page."

A wonderful man. I'd recommend his book, 'Pictures on a Page' here's one for £9 on Biblio. LINK. It's become the bible on the subject.

Unknown origin, but via Rod Liddle in the Spectator

Boris Johnson wants to have been Prime Minister, but he doesn't want to be Prime Minister :smile: .

I'm very fond of the Prince of Wales later Edward VII 's quote 'All men are equal on and below the turf', and have inflicted it upon you in the past. I always thought there was a lot of truth in it.

Rather spookily - and very pleasingly - next week it will be conclusively proved beyond all doubt. I'll tell you about it one day. . . :smile: .

Trump speaking to thousands of supporters, many not wearing masks, at his Florida rally. I'm glad I wasn't there...

" Ian Trenholm (Chair of the Care Quality Commission) said Covid risked turning inequalities in England’s health services from “faultlines into chasms” as the CQC published its annual State of Care report on hospitals, GPs and care services. The report reveals serious problems with mental health, maternity services and emergency care before the pandemic, and says these areas must not be allowed to fall further behind.

“Murphys law of economic policy”: Economists have the least influence on policy where they know the most and are most agreed; they have the most influence on policy where they know the least and disagree most vehemently.

From a BBC report today on Trump and climate change. Trump is taking the US back to the 1900s and earlier. The orange knob on the universe is also the reverse button...
Over the past three years, researchers at Columbia University in New York have tracked more than 160 significant roll-backs of environmental regulations. These cover everything from car fuel standards, to methane emissions, to light bulbs.
