The last time the UK went into recession, the books were 'balanced*' on the shoulders of the poorest, the most vulnerable, the elderly, childrens centres, people with disabilities, women's refuges. 120,000 disabled people died. 1.2m people a year have ended up using foodbanks.

4 cases in Auckland and it's back to Level 3. Over 1000 a day in the UK, and it's carry on opening up the schools with no mask policy. The Tories don't care about lives.

He's Trump's Spiro Agnew. Before Nixon could resign, Agnew had to go. Otherwise he'd become president. Fortunately Agnew was also corrupt, so went first. Enter Gerald Ford

There should be a norm of 50-50 m-f, unless a college/uni is overwhelmingly male or female. And, there should be a reasonable representation of overseas students, given how many Chinese were at my daughter's graduation at in January.

Would be good if the production team were to impose a rule that teams should reflect the university in terms of gender and ethnicity. No more all-white, all-male teams.

I think they're more than a bit of card that's been through an HP printer. You know, encrypted chips, contactless readers, that sort of thing.
