Basically is Big Brother set in a Spanish villa and more geared towards relationships. I've been watching it, to be honest. Yes, it's trash but meh, I sometimes enjoy this sort of light entertainment while at the same time completely understand why others would have absolutely no interest in it. Each to their own, Quite why some people get so angry about it, I don't know. They aren't forced to watch it. That said it should absolutely not be anywhere near the top of list of topics the BBC News reports on!
Indeed we're not forced to watch it, but that doesn't stop news editors reporting it like it's Nixon in China.

Ramming it down our throats - as some light say in a different context.

I can remember Love Island from donkeys years ago. I thought it failed.

Brexit: Did Dominic Raab warn of no-deal during referendum campaign?
After days looking through the archives, we have not been able to find any other clear examples of Mr Raab talking about the possibility of a no-deal exit before the referendum on 23 June 2016. Channel 4 News and The Guardian both came to the same conclusion.

As we strive for a better deal with the EU, we need to view that relationship in the context of our wider vision for the UK after Brexit. Fifteen years ago, when I was posted as a Foreign Office lawyer to The Hague, I remember my counterparts from Japan, Australia, South Korea and Brazil lamenting the introverted perspective of the EU and the UK – at the expense of the rest of the world.
Pants on fire again. I like how he says this is 15 years ago as get out clause if anyone questions his claims.

Also, slight issue there: they weren't in it. We were. I thought rational self interest was a good thing for a Tory...

A terrible, terrible thought suddenly struck me this afternoon. I think there is a chance we may be only 5 weeks away from this utter clown being PM, as he's "First Secretary of State" at point of dissolution, which makes him the de facto Deputy PM. It relies on the following;

- Tories win the election / are the largest party after an election and attempt to form a minority Government
- Boris Johnson loses his seat

Neither of those strike me as unrealistic outcomes TBH.

Dominic Raab was called a "coward" by the friends and family of Harry Dunn as they were left outside of a hustings in his constituency.

The 19-year-old died in a crash in Northamptonshire in August that led to the suspect leaving the UK claiming diplomatic immunity.

His family had hoped to put pressure on the foreign secretary who attended the event at a packed church in Surrey.

A member of staff at the church said they were kept out due to fire safety.

The Conservative Party has been approached for comment.

Did the Tories have a competition to see who could come up with the most lame excuse for not letting the Dunns in?
