Has Drakeford adopted the latest UK travel list and rules? I can't seem to find anything to confirm either way, half term will be here soon.

Pull your troops out after 20 years of attempted westernisation and leave the Taliban to deal with those who were westernised.

Inflamatory Journalism

As a remain voter with friends who are of settled status I find this type of headline and journalism distasteful. Some left wing journalists are guilty of the behaviour they complain about in others.

I found this one annoying, feels like a patchwork of stories, quotes and numbers that could be drawn from many UK cities, also throw in a bit of Brexit, and it rather uses Adam Romain's worthwhile story.

Patrisse Cullors buys $1.4M home near Malibu

Last month the New York Post reported that Ms Cullors - a self-described Marxist - had bought a $1.4m luxury home in Topanga Canyon, near Malibu, and owned three other homes, including a custom ranch in Georgia.

Nice to see that Facebook banned posts about this.

at 11:43 20 May 2021

In Wales, Covid-19 was the 18th leading cause of death in April, accounting for 35 deaths, or 1.4% of the total.

The leading cause of death in England and Wales in April was ischaemic heart diseases, followed by dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

The overall mortality rate was 851.2 deaths per 100,000 people in England and 920.0 deaths per 100,000 people in Wales - both the lowest mortality rate for the month of April since the ONS data time series began in 2001.

Non-Scientific Scientists
at 11:29 20 May 2021

There's a small number of scientists who keep cropping up in the media, often they speculate with insufficient evidence to support their position. He's an example where he's quoted as saying 'I think so'.

In my early scientific training the clear difference between fact and assumption was drummed into me, assumption is to be avoided


Prof Andrew Hayward, an infectious disease expert at University College London who advises the government, tells BBC Breakfast he is “very concerned” about the spread of the B1.617.2 variant first identified in India and “more generalised” measures may be needed.

Asked if the UK is at the start of a third wave of infections, he says: “I think so.”

Data has no meaning except in context, this ONS data gives more context to the isolated data we are fed by the media.

The ONS data was posted on 28 Nov so you may need to scroll down.

BBC Headline Was False Today
at 22:37 17 Apr 2020

Someone has taken the BBC for a ride today, their headline feature was not verified. This was run on the Web, TV and Radio all morning.

We pay £3.7 Billion and they can't verify their sources. It would take a 1 minute phone call to verify this source.
