USA had a similar pair of bad choices last time and it looks like they will again.

Looking forward immensely to our holiday in Kernow - we are going on the Friday, a day early to miss traffic, and will not go to bed until 12.01that night. We are taking most of our food so not to go shopping in the local Tescos,keeping away from the locals. We have clear consciences, so do not listen to key-board warriors who spout rubbish. Most of those only want their 10 minutes of fame. Bon voyage !!.

Yes, you will also see I implored voters on this forum not to vote for the antisemitic far left Corbyn.

It was not a case of one of the other though. A small majority, hung parliament, minority government or coalition would all have been better. Which ever of the Corbyn or Johnson won, at least any of the options listed there would have kept them in check and held them to account.

My giving one the men unfit for office a huge majority was a failure of the British electorate and the results are shown now.

I am impressed with Keir S as one would be for a former Director of Public Prosecution.
He had an excellent PMQs on Wednesday. Boris will forced to up his game.
He is moving the Labour Party back to centre ground where they will be once again a threat to win a future GE.
Getting rid of Rebecca Wrong-Bailey will do his prestige no harm.

Whether he remains in situ to claim the crown of PM remains to be seen.
Neil Kinnock brought the party back from the left wing lunacy of the Michael Foot era, but lost a GE and never made PM.
I suspect it might be same with KS.

It all depends on the next year. A second spike of Covid and resulting measures and/or a disastrous impact of no trade deal with the EU and next year might be even harder for Boris than this current one. However, no second spike, an economic recovery and a good trade agreement and Boris may cruise to victory in 2024.

I did warn you, I'm still going and after my visit to Aldi's I put my thoughts into words.

JUST LUV A DUK, THE VIRUS STILL HERE

Marcus the Duck is confused, with this change to rainy weather
He waddles about in his Wellies, and really at the end of his tether
Confused by the puddles of water, as he looks for his ponds and lakes
He runs around quite scared, and forced to put on his brakes
-
In a similar way I’m concerned, with my first visit to a food store
With my face masks’ in place, I sanitise my hands at the shop door
The place has arrows and lines, the checkouts protecting your face
The shop has really worked hard, to make customer feel real safe
-
After sanitising my hands once more, I sit in my car and contemplate
I found that people are ignoring, those rules that perhaps they hate
Nobody was using the hand cleaning, and only one lady was masked
Distancing just didn’t happen, regardless in what we were asked
-
They think that the Stroud is so safe, the virus won’t happen here
But looks what happened in Leicester, a lock-down returns, oh dear!
Just try to think of others, the elderly and those with ill health
So hide your face from others and protect their lives and yourself

I think there must be a subliminal message hidden somewhere in poem! ;)
Again excellent LM, well done.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
