And boy, haven't the motorists' organisations collective gobs been flapping over that one, especially the suggestion that Sunak might put another 5p on a litre of fuel to help pay for his largesse.

And this won't go down well in Vero Beach:

Capita to close over a third of offices permanently

There is however a down-side to this: it could affect pension funds.

Cities that prioritise public transport, cycling and walking inconvenience private motorists.
Cities that prioritise private vehicles kill cyclists and peds.

I'm a particular fan of his warbling about the obese in mobility scooters during an article that is an extended outbreak of petulance over the prospect of having to get out of the car and move about a bit.

The trouble is, he wants someone even more right wing.

Well, say what you like about that nice Mr Mussolini, at least he made the trains run on time...
Funnily enough, so did everyone working from home. Turns out that if you get rid of passengers, and station dwell times, it is easy to hit targets.

Say what you like about Alex...

Boo, lefties. Nothing against the genuine anti-racists, nothing wrong with genuine eco-protesters, but...

As ever, real message is "shut up and go away".

Laying into Johnson, but can't quite bring himself to go all out. Anyway, apparently it's now all the fault of the caahncil.

Looks like he is talking bollocks again.
Avon and Somerset nicked people innocently having a barbecue, yet stood back and watched, without making a single arrest, as rowdy BLM protesters toppled a statue of Edward Colston and chucked it into Bristol harbour.
When I googled people arrested for having a barbecue in Somerset. There were about 30 links none of which had evidence to support the claim and one of the links was actually to Littlejohn's article.

He also repeated this claim.
During lockdown proper, it was the smaller police forces who pursued alleged transgressors with the most aggressive zeal. Who can forget Derbyshire sending up drones to spy on walkers in the Peak District?
As I pointed out at the time it wasn't walkers they were spying on but people going out climbing. And also the publicity the force received actually meant that the message that people should stay away from the Peaks got across to thousands of people thanks to all the free publicity guaranteed by articles appearing in the press.

Quite a few papers have ridiculed the role of wardens but surely air aid wardens in the second world war played a key role in savings thousands of life so why are journalists mocking such a role?

Because they're cunts?

Because they understand 1970s sitcoms better than they understand their history.
Probably true. Hodges the Chief Warden in Dad's Army has been defining the image of air raid wardens - "put that bloomin' light out! " for decades. Largely due to the enduring popularity of the show. Who'd have thought Warden Hodges would have been a beacon for bigotry ?

My Grandfather who was in a reserved occupation during the war, served as an ARP Warden. On 20th January 1945 a V2 rocket dropped across the road from where he, my Grandmother, Mother, and Uncle lived. Perhaps Mr Littlejohn would have a slightly different view of what they did if he had spent 12 hours digging friends and neighbours out of the rubble.
