    I was watching UK police talking/persuading people who were out on Brighton beach and other places just sitting to go home.

    Weird, don’t understand what they don’t just scream at them and get the pepper spray out. Much more effective!

    So if what I read elsewhere is right, the police had some BBQ gathering in the police station, then a few of those leaving drunkenly assaulted others? So much for social distancing.

    Meanwhile, looks increasingly likely that others will draw the conclusion that protection of freedoms has to take place at the ballot boxes or on the streets, not at the courts.

    And some still say the judiciary is independent...

    I mean, this is still a memorable example:

    Recruitment numbers are down and attrition is up, because of "fake news".

    Seems like quite a number couldn’t stay in good conscience or take the strain after all...
