    Trump

    Yeah, just been looking at Romney's twitter... the number of people defending the utterly indefensible is crazy. Re Graham, probably the 70s thing was a mistake... he's still an absolutely massive cunt though.

    Dickens

    I never had Great Expectations for Dickens but Our Mutual Friend - you know, Oliver! - told me to try the musical instead and that was fine.

    Trump

    I love that Lindsay Graham (or was it Moscow Mitch?) said that it's right that he should be released, after all it was a non-violent crime and he's in his seventies. For starters that rule has never applied to countless people whose lives have been ruined by custodial sentence, and for a second...

    Trump

    And now he's commuted Stone's sentence so he won't spend time in jail, completely blatant banana republic level corruption from the president. Again.

    Trump

    Another thing often discussed is how the last few big elections and votes in the US and UK have confounded the pollsters and predictors. I'm just going by the fact that - simplistically - electorate is made up of Trump's base that will never waver, Dems who will never vote for him and a number...

    Trump

    I hope he's wrong. The methodology does give me some hope.... It's an interesting idea to model based on how enthusiastic people are about a candidate at first I guess. Thing is, that will surely be disrupted if there are strong enough unusual circumstances during the incumbent's term. Given...

    I keep reading that the track and trace thing that doesn't work cost 20 billion pounds, that's £20,000,000,000 - can that be right?

    Dinner of the Day.

    Girlfriend back from France, she made mussels for lunch in a sauce of cream, wine, parsley, onions etc and this posh French butter that she got addicted to on her trip. Lovely. We're trying to move to a model of bigger lunch and smaller dinners... tricky one for me cos it involves getting up...

    In fact I reckon if you're sitting on a tube there are as many as 7 seats within 2m of you... imagine if it's crowded and you're standing. Could be ten or twenty people within a couple of metres. If you travel for an hour (as I used to) then potentially could be four lots of twenty, that's 80...

    Sounds kinda low... depends how sociable you are I guess. If you do a half hour tube journey to work every day then it could easily be more than ten a day simply on your journeys if there is no social distancing.

    Is that negligible? How many people do you get close enough to risk being infected by in London in a day? A week? Also some hots spots I presume.
