  • Commented on Cough Cough
    At the end of the day people were warned about what boris johnson and dominic cummings were like; the liar and the crook if you will. But people still voted for them Because he stood for something - Brexit, and...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    According to D.J Trump, the Transition to Greatness has started, ahead of schedule!!! (Narrator: He's wrong. On multiple levels.) Depends - next year could indeed be one of the greatest ever if he loses in November (perhaps someone should suggest...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    For both the Boris election and the previous one, almost exactly the same number of people turned out to vote at all, and almost exactly the same proportion of them voted Tory. Such a wonderful word "almost" 1.2% seems such...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Of course, 20 years later we now have turnstiles - somewhere along the way the innumerate fear of cheaters overcame the rational. They also help to give the illusion of better safety, which is important to certain segments of society...

    Does that mean he stole the drink driving/drug test results (evidence) from the dying officers when he fled the scene? Search online reveals "ice" is the/a name for crystal meth in Australia, so I guess the answer is no -...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    There's a subtle difference between a charge for "wasting official time" and a charge for "telling relevant officials of an emergency". I'm sorry that's not obvious to you. I'm sorry that you chose to cherry pick the beginning of the...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Further trouble for Boris - at least one poll has his numbers dropping dramatically (and he is dragging the government numbers down with him and Cummings). With Starmer's numbers going up it could be an interesting time for political intrigue....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Or, to translate, the lock downs and restriction worked well enough that we didn't(*) overwhelm the health care system, thus some can now come out and claim the cure was worse than the disease. I suspect the people of northern...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    One cannot avoid placing a considerable amount of blame on the British electoral system, It's easy to say it's the systems fault, or the voters fault, because that way those who created the mess can escape the blame. The British...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Again on tactics what they did this afternoon should have been what they did at the start while now it risks appearing to be a self serving reinvention of events. Also digging in with attacking the press for forcing him...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    They seem to have now moved to blaming it all on remoaners I suspect it will amuse many that the Daily Mail is now a mouthpiece for remoeners. https://www.bbc.com/news/blogs/the_papers...

    Outside the USA the cops or fire brigade don't turn up and say "that will be $XXX", why is the ambulance different? Sadly not true. In Ontario an Ambulance is not free - it is $45 if medically necessary...

    What can I do? She's in an assisted living situation, a cottage in a facility which has locked down all access except for family, but that won't do any good when he wants to bring himself, his wife, and his...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    This phrase, sell off the NHS to the Americans" gets tossed around a lot here. Would someone eliminate my guesses as to what people in the UK mean by this? Not in the UK, but. The various American health care...

    You are of the opinion that BoZo is merely a puppet for some seriously unpleasant righjt-wing, if not actually fascist people? Not Gove, obviously, because he's even more incompetent, but whom do you suspect of this... Not a puppet as...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    It's a real limitation of voluntary quarantine efforts; the ~third of the population who isn't responsible won't. Partially true, but the bigger problem is that chronic case of leaders ignoring the rules they are implementing - they need to lead...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    And I suspect that just like then we're going to see a large uptick in cases in a week or two. It will be interesting to see if there is given that it was all outdoors and no opportunities to...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Will we crash out completely, or will BoZo swerve? My suspicion - Boris no longer has the authority to swerve. Boris is the proverbial dead man walking at this point - his illness provided the opportunity for opponents both in...

    So Biden's accuser has been dropped as a client by her (now previous) lawyer. https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1263854296895897600...

    In Canada we're facing the same thing as the UK — arguments that our food safety standards must be changed because they are acting as a trade barrier to American companies. It's been happening for years, and it's got worse...

    And I don't see why any trade deal between the U.K. and the U.S. couldn't specifically specify that ONLY non-hormone & non-antibiotic dairy and beef can be exported to the U.K. But why would the US (and more specifically the...

    Since the lock down I've tried to bake bread a few times. Pretty dismal results but will keep trying now that I've found some oldish recipes for how to make a sourdough starter. I have also recently started making bread,...

    Anyone have any suggestions for how to enrich/modify regular AP wheat flour into 'bread flour'? Wheat Gluten, comes in various names depending where you are. In Canada called gluten flour and available at Bulk Barn. This discusses briefly: https://www.seriouseats.com/2020/05/vital-wheat-gluten-bread-flour-hack.html...

    Also: IIRC, the "ultra-heat treated" (UHT) milk sold in the UK is what the US refers to as pasteurized; pasteurized milk in the UK is heated to a lower temperature and isn't as long-term stable, but tastes better. Search online...

    And if someone in the US says "oh, but we have it...", kindly point to one national chain of stores - supermarkets, quick stops, anywhere. Well, I'm not in the US, but does Walmart count? https://www.walmart.com/ip/Parmalat-Shelf-Stable-UHT-Whole-Milk-1-Qt/151857624 Robert: We used to...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I REALLY fail to understand how US voters consistently vote against thier own interests in health, when a clear, working set of models is openly visible around the planet. I don't understand why people continue to start smoking when the...

    Oh, and Obama and Biden not liking it? Please, let's not forget former Dem Sen Max "never met a campaign contribution from a medical insurance company (Aetna, and another, for example) that I didn't like","Single payer is off the table"...

    What I want to ask Biden, question #1: when, not if, the Orange Thing-packed Supreme Court of the US kills the ACA, what is he going to do, on day 1 of his presidency, to replace it, that will cover...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    BCC - multi-party Parliaments are common and every decade or so a new Party shows up along with one or two 'Independents'. This means and re-inforces the belief and reality that any candidate can and sometimes does win, that it...

    It's almost as if the Ontario Conservatives want to see public education fail… Not to dismiss that, but their more immediate problem is parents venting their frustration at the government for their kids not being in school, and not getting...
