Tories shoot themselves in the foot (again)
at 18:08 24 Feb 2024

After the Labour fiasco in Rochdale, 30p Lee Anderson has popped up and will nab the upcoming headlines

So easy for Labour:

1. Former deputy PM loses the whip for being racist in an interview on GB News
2. Between the interview and losing the whip the ONLY Tory MPs to be openly critical were Javid and Ghuni - such an own goal
3. Over the next few days, others will come out and criticise, highlighting the problem further
4. Anderson will probably defect to Reform, taking Tory votes with him
5. Tories will have to pretend to be nastier to try and get those votes back
6. Labour benefit in all areas.

Accessing a GP
at 10:18 6 Feb 2024

I probably jinxed myself after in conversation in work last week it came up that I hadn’t has a day off sick for over 15 years…

Cue a miserable weekend, culminating with me trying to see a GP first thing yesterday. I’ve been left wondering if many are having similar issues.

I’ve been registered with my local surgery for 11 years and fortunately have never had to contact them so this is all new to me.

I rang at 8am and waited about 20 mins to speak to a receptionist. She took down my symptoms as a triage and said a doctor would ring me back.

Doctor rang back at 3 and said he needed to see me but couldn’t that day. I could be seen first thing today but it would be at a sister surgery in the next town over.

Went there, saw some kind of practitioner who could diagnose but not prescribe. Said I needed antibiotics so he’d do a note for a doctor who would contact a pharmacy with the prescription.

I’ve now had to drive home, sit here festering until this afternoon when I have to get back in the car and drive to a pharmacy to pick up the pills.

I suppose my question is, is this normal? Seems nuts to me.

Gym playlist.
at 18:54 14 Nov 2023

After ending up quite flabby around the edges I started hitting the gym about three months ago.

It’s gone pretty well but I’m bored of my music choices.

Any suggestions for good songs to do cardio to?

TIA

Looks like the Manchester leg is being scrapped, on top of it not ending in Euston or Birmingham New Street.

So we’ll have a train running from QPR to just outside Birmingham City centre, with the time made up lost by having to get to these stations.

It’s going to cost 2 Liz Truss budgets.

Well done to all those picking up results today.

There’s an argument to say they’ve been the most disrupted cohort, so they should be applauded for their efforts 👏

£107 million made on Caicedo in two years on top of the massive deals from last year.

How on earth are they managing to do this so consistently?!

Great (but depressing) piece this, largely about the justice system and policing but goes further.

Qatar to bid for Rugby League World Cup

This would be an odd one. Despite Rugby League being played by the hardest of the hard, it's an incredibly progressive and inclusive sport (over here anyway).

I can't see the UK teams having any truck with Qatar.

English council elections

Looks increasingly like the Tories will lose over a thousand seats which would be worse than the number they put out as the worst case scenario and for expectation managment.

This follows an equally poor performance in 2019. There is a difference between the two in that Labour aslo perfomed pretty poorly in 2019.

I reckon this is partly due to Starmer replacing Corbyn but more that not being able to afford your weekly shop or get a GP appointment is more important to people than childish woke culture wars and being nasty to immigrants.
