A nation can be built on Pasties but not on Marmite and Penguins (despite loving Penguins (animal and biscuit)).

Plus don't most Strayans fucking hate Marmite and toss it off over Vegemite? That's like getting Devon & Cornwall to agree on the Jam/Cream - Cream/Jam debate.

Asked if he would take the knee himself Mr Raab replied he would only take the knee for two people, "the Queen and the Mrs when I asked her to marry me".

'The Mrs', he is such a man of the people geezer isn't he.

TBF he was talking to the Waitrose Hatey Cockpins when he made the comment so he would have been taking the tone expected on her show.

This isn't going away, been a long time since we had a proper high level planning scandal.

She is a walking disaster. Beggars belief that she is allowed to continue to be a perpetual car crash.

Not really a surprise, one only has to look at this forum and elsewhere to get the understanding that for many the government can still do absolutely no wrong at all, whatever happens.

This is very worrying - govt are proposing to abolish trial by jury, under the pretext of a backlog caused by COVID, but actually caused by a decade of austerity:

Irrespective of what the backlog was caused by, trial by jury has underpinned our justice system for centuries. It's a hallmark of a free society, it's abolition is a step toward authoritarianism.

Thing is at the moment knowledge of the legal system is rather low and opinions seem rather hawkish and hardline.

Its been noticeable after the tragic and shitty events of the weekend up here that literally every story in the local media, when provided on social media after a while descends into a grotty wank fest about who can be the more hardline and aggressive about the need for corporal punishment and retribution against the perpetrator.
