Questions No-one Asked Today – 30-7-21

As usual, journos questioning Glass-Jaw Gladys and Zombie Bureaucrat Chant managed to prove themselves both craven and stupid. Just one of these questions would have been nice.

If Only An Organisation Existed

If only a framework existed for political action that could provide guidance and focus to the thousands of people who know something is going horribly wrong

The Real Covid Problem is the Media

Journos describing the policy failure over Covid never call out the real problem - the media itself, and its stupid and craven journos.
