    Boris Johnson

    Fortunately I think his recent separation from Lady Macbeth has put paid to any ambition in that direction

    That was 2016

    Boris Johnson

    One of the reasons he did not stand in 2016 was that he felt he would not have sufficient support amongst the parliamentary Conservative party. Those who allowed his name to go on the ballot in 2019 took a cynical approach but he probably does not have a vast amount of support amongst his colleagues.

    Ideas and possibilities 2022

    As someone who worked for British Coal in its dying days. Scargill was both right and wrong but in someway being such a divisive figure made Margaret Thatcher's job easier. You only have to look at the way the UDM and Roy Lynk (on my DDP team) were betrayed to see what she really thought.

    Famous celebrity births , pregnancies and babies

    My brother is 8 years older than me. He did his degree when the grants were at the highest real term levels. I did mine in the last year before student loans were introduced. My father who grew up during the war encouraged us to continue our education because that option was denied him. We have struggled financially but I feel for my daughter's generation. I think the UK will be worse my eldest sister moved to Germany last year to be close to her daughter.

    Doctor Who

    The era looks fantastic but the stories and scripts feel unpolished and CC is the worst culprit I feel he is in need of a good script editor to tell him when something needs more work. S12 was an improvement on S11 but still needs work to be back where it should be.

    For some reason Donald Sutherland has been on my radar for a while. Did he have a health scare a while back?
