Bin bag packing is so great. Can just seal the bag and chuck it wherever you want

It's amber or yellow, definitely not orange. Has too much association with protestant unionism, so is explicitly not the colour used

Fundamentally this is why I find Trump's attacks on the FBI/DOJ by far the most sinister thing he does. Without the rule of law, all else is possible.

Seems to display a stunning lack of regard for the fact that the breakdown of the rule of law is a key characteristic of dictatorships. They don't *need* laws to do what they do. They just need power.

Obviously you can add Dutch to the list of legal systems the Holocaust was definitely not legal under if you really wish. The essential point remains

One of those days when you remember that Brexit was originally a slightly tongue-in-cheek riff off Grexit.

So as a little side fact whilst waiting for next result. The LD victory here means they become the main opposition group. This is despite winning *no seats* at when the council was contested. All their seats are through by-elections where they hadnโ€™t even stood in 2015.

Spoke to a somebody studying law at university who has โ€™s disease - she said she takes oil and last resort smokes it to stop muscle pain; as well as helping her to sleep & eat - she told me to not reveal her name. UK drug policy is silencing people needing help.
