Just catching up on the full Boris interview with . God save us from him. He’s not remotely charming, just full of detail-dodging bluster. He clearly has no mastery of the facts despite having been in the cabinet. Hunt was infinitely more credible

Confident in my ability to properly tennis, I take the court. I smile at my opponent. Serena does not return the gesture. She'd be prettier if she did, I think. She serves. The ball passes cleanly through my skull, killing me instantly

were you two at the same school fete, or is my twitter timeline just having a very bottle tombola sort of day?

On the plus side, sounds like you have a very enlightened garden centre. Our local Homebase sells off half its stock half-price, apparently unaware it just needs deadheading and watering 🤷‍♀️

We gave people apparently bee-friendly wildflower seeds at our wedding... the results we’ve seen so far resemble 3ft-tall weeds... 😕

Three years after the Hampton-Alexander Review, it’s unacceptable that four FTSE 350 firms still have no women on their boards. Shame on them! Action to remedy the lack of gender diversity in the boardroom is long overdue.

Not forgetting long-standing conflict of interest concerns re: interconnectors... In this case I think the key is that they “flexed” Black Start & changed course of action specifically to complete the coal-free 24 hours. Should that goal have featured in decision-making at all?

It may well be they didn’t breach licence, but they certainly took the allegations seriously & as I understand it are not best pleased with the email that said “Please ensure that no coal runs before 00:00” & the fact this advice was codenamed in an apparent reference to Twitter.

Very reasonably priced paywalls 😉 And yes that’s their argument - they say they did not breach a licence condition as they could meet Black Start other ways. They do acknowledge having deliberately delayed the coal plant start-up to hit the 24-hour record

Hi - as it hopefully explains lower down the article, this issue related to Black Start. They didn’t run something instead of coal but they did delay running the coal plant, which they had received advice to warm for Black Start purposes.

Actually, that would make government better - not worse. Imagine if more people in power spent years of their lives actually working for a living. We’d probably have healthcare and living wages by now.

Whistleblower accuses National Grid of putting media management before licence obligations in order to deliver on a social media prediction of the first coal-free day since the industrial revolution.

Ofwat said Southern's board was indeed "potentially unaware" of what was going on, but heavily criticised how the company was run: Southern "did not take the steps that we would expect a diligent & reasonable company to take" and had "failings in corporate culture & governance".
