I found this quite upsetting today. In Sao Paulo every 5 minutes they have a funeral then the next mourners have 5 minutes for their loved one. Then on to the next. How awful 😞

She also said on This Morning that the timing of the pregnancy was disgraceful, when queried by Philip Schofield she said 9 months ago the country was in the grips of Brexit and he should have been more aware of his responsibilities.

Obviously not taking into account that it's his partners first child, she felt that Boris should not have pursued his and his partners wish to have a family. 

Knowing Street Porters record and views on children she comes across as a bitter old women.

Yet another "celebrity" journalist trying to make a name for herself during this terrible time.

I was referring in particular to the headline in the article which suggests that a female PM would be judged quite differently if she put it about like Boris has done.  Slapper, slag, etc would be the order of the day by a lot of people..

True, there are some idiots about, but then again Boris gets slated constantly about his personal life, including his relationships and his children. One morning of congratulations does not change that.

 

It's also not all bad when it comes to female leaders:

Saw a funny tweet earlier but can't seem to find it again now. Apparently Col Tom had said that Boris is going a good job. Queue Carole Cadwalladr claiming that £25m of money raised for the NHS is from Russia and Ash Sarkar dismissing him as another old white male. David Lammy calling him a white supremacist.

None of that happened.

What did happen is your mate Farage broke the lockdown rules travelling 100 miles for non essential travel.

Are you fact checking jokes now?

Captain Tom did praise the performance of Boris Johnson yesterday according to quotes in the Daily Mirror.

 

A lot of broadcasters are hardly providing essential services. If you apply your rules to Farage you should apply them to everyone.

Turns out this NHS procurement manager could find PPE;

He could find so much PPE he started a company 2 weeks ago to privately sell it.

Scumbag. Don't think you'll find many people who wouldn't want to see him prosecuted if possible. 

The people taking financial advantage of this are real scum. When it was kicking off in March there were loads of pondlife selling hand sanitizer on ebay for outrageous prices. 20 quid for a 50ml bottle. One in particular I emailed to inform that they were a cnut responded gloatingly about the money made. Suspect she didn't feel that way two days later after deleting her account after I had forwarded the ad and her companies house details to trading standards.

One thing that made me smile amid all the bad news.....

A host of big names gathered together to raise money for charity.... hosted by the BBC....... but didn't raise as much as an old hero walking around his garden with a Zimmer frame. 

"This is NHS to captain Tom..... you've really made the grade....

I'm surprised someone hasn't doctored the Bowie classic in tribute to the guy.

But all those supposed big names in the shadow of an ordinary mortal brought a smile to an old sceptics face.
