Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to the Covid Enquiry we go to hear what Vallance and Whitty had to endure during the pandemic. Spoiler alert - incompetence, idiocy and disrespect mainly. We also find out they were burdened with a PM who didn't understand the science and thought if people died it was 'OK' if they'd had a 'good innings.' Lovely.
But first, Jemma and Marina are thrilled that The Exploding Heads' catchphrase 'Love to the family Colin' is catching on. Hear an extraordinary caller who was so aerated about immigrants he was positively yelling at Tom Swarbrick on LBC. Then Jemma also encountered yet another 'Colin' on Jeremy Vine. 'Love to the family....love to the family' was the only worthy response. Funny how it's always 'foreigners' these 'types' get so worked up about.
Which brings us to Rwanda- ie the most unworkable, costly, morally dubious idea ever to have been deemed unlawful multiple times. The latest ruling by the Supreme Court is in and when Sunak binned Braverman he had the perfect opportunity to bin the policy off with her. But no, Dr Death (as he's being referred to on X due to his ill advised Eat Out to Help Out policy) is standing by it, doubling down and trying to change the law in order to change fact.
On a lighter note, Cliff Richard, went on This Morning and told the world that he didn't get photographed with Elvis because he'd put on weight. At times like this Twitter can be fun.
