An urgent appeal to the UK government - seize the means of food distribution


During this grave national emergency (which will surely get worse) it's wrong to leave something as important as food distribution to companies whose first motivation is profit after all their executives get bonuses based on profit.
Supermarkets are lapping it up, they're making a fortune, they love us to panic buy.
So Mr Johnson. Act now, seize the means of food distribution, give households (& relate to number occupants) a grocery spending limit and a single delivery or collection slot per week. Close the big stores* to walk ins to allow the staff to focus on deliveries and collections.
Oh, and implement price controls on key items.

* leave the small convenience stores alone (defined as the ones that can open longer on a Sunday) they can continue to provide a good local service for local walk ins.

More than 50,000 additional deaths and Stanley is flogging a book !! Outrageous

On Sky News this morning we had: Stanley Johnson re-launching his book "The Virus".



As the body count mounts (now one of the highest in the world) at the incompetent hands of a government led by his hopeless son Boris, Stanley is now trying to make a few quid out of his book.
"It's got a new cover" he chortled.

All proceeds to the the NHS ?

What do you think ?

This is unbelievable !

As evidenced below, the government have given a £250m+ contract for PPE to a small investment strategy company, they were the only bidder for the contract ! 

How the hell did this happen ?


According to Tenders Electronic Daily (TED the journal of EU procurement) The Department of Health have awarded a contract have awarded a £252,500,000 (!!) contract for the supply of PPE. The contract was awarded on price and Ayanda Capital were the only bidder.

According to Companies House the last filed unaudited accounts ending 31 December 2019 stated that the average number of employees was 5 and fixed assets were £2.9m

According to https://www.ayandacapital.com they are a family office focused on a broad investment strategy, PPE isn't mentioned.

Priti is back - "I am leading..." just when we thought things couldn't get any worse !

Back in February Priti Patel, Home Secretary (aaarrgghh !!), repeatedly vowed to tackle "counter-terrorism offenders" following a shocking knife attack in Streatham. 

Since then her profile has been very low, I'm glad to say. 

Until yesterday that is....

According to the Daily Mail website, 9/4/2020:

Ms Patel, who has not been seen or heard in public since March 23, said in an unexpected radio interview this evening that police must not act in a 'heavy-handed' manner during the coronavirus lockdown. 

This on the same day that Downing Street said Britain was at a 'critical juncture' in the battle to curb the spread of the disease and with good weather forecast for the long weekend.

According to the Daily Mail, in the same article, she also stated  " .... what I would say is that I speak to the police every day, in fact I am leading operational calls every single day with our blue light family"

Really ? Leading operational calls every single day ? Can th…
