Bungle, Her Majesty's Government is playing Jack the Lad to an adoring domestic gallery, but it's really not cricket to renege on plural international agreements. Blighty PLC is suffering enough already, don'tcha think?

Sika deer and River Avon: examples of 'touch everything, understand nothing' language.

What would have kept the deer population in check in the past... ?

I think I've just solved Kanto's feral bosozoku problem. Let them ride and predate, consume and consummate.

"The increase of yezo sika deer is said to be linked to global warming," said Oikawa

Dwell too much on those words and you'll be culling humans first.

As a keen cyclist with a love of the sensual, I say Toshihiro wins the internet.

I'm inspired to dig out my mountain bike and head for the trails. Thanks!

Prevention beats cure.

Wahhabism and state terrorism must be tackled at source.

Blair/Bush's criminal enterprise must never be repeated.

Well the UK medical chief says to not wear one so I won't

Lamentable dearth of critical thinking in this comment.

The message is wash your hands frequently and your mask daily.

Posted in: I couldn’t care less about the worst ranking. I would like local residents to be proud of Ibaraki and speak out about its wonderfulness. See in context

Ibaraki has its moments. There's the cosmopolitan Tsukuba science city, great cycling around Kasumigaura and up to Mt. Tsukuba, and that surf at comparatively uncongested beaches (population density is low for Kanto).

It's let down by its people though, who can be a sour lot.

On the way back everyone in the car cheered when we crossed the border into Tokyo.

Alfie, Ibaraki doesn't border Tokyo. Are you sure you weren't crossing the Tone going into Chiba?

Otherwise you were dissing Saitama or Chiba, like smug metropolitans.

Any real crime statistics to back that up?

Despite the existence of a National Police Agency, our police are hopeless at gathering, collating and analysing data. How else could we justify the continued wholesale prioritisation of motor vehicles over pedestrians everywhere?

How dare you question the government's wisdom‼️

We will sell the horses' oats so that we can not only bolt the stable doors, but concrete them up, too.

Posted in: Irish foreign minister warns of breakdown in EU-UK relations See in context

In sustaining their fantasy of Britain as hapless victim of the big, bad, bullying EU, Northern Ireland has political utility to Her Majesty's Government for the first time in its 100 year existence.

However, its business and farming communities predominantly welcome the opportunities that the Northern Ireland Protocol bring them (with free access to both the EU and UK markets). Anti-NIP protests are tiny.

It's an issue only for those politicians whose fevered support for Brexit (rejected by the majority of the region) was fed by their own brand of Project Fear - the inevitable greening culturally, socially and politically of the place in the slow but inevitable demographic shift to greater Irish identity and eventual all-island unity.

With May 2022 elections for the devolved NI assembly projected to deliver a Sinn Féin First Minister, greater existential challenges loom for the region's role in the UK, especially with such a culturally, economically and socially attractive alternative on its doorstep.

If Boris or Frostie were true unionists they'd think twice about making Northern Ireland a political football.

A devout evangelical Christian friend of mine recently texted to explain why he was not getting the COVID-19 vaccine. “Jesus went around healing lepers and touched them without fear of getting leprosy,” he said.
