In which Quentin Letts spekes his branes on Any Questions:

“… but also, to me, they’ve become instruments of control [groans] and I find them slightly sinister [more groans] … I think there is something to do with thought control about this [more groans and a solitary clap] … I think there is an element of officialdom trying to put out a message by forcing us to wear a mask rather than the simple health science”.

The idea that masks are a pathology of control is so pathetically limited. Control is a fact of society, especially in a pandemic. Saying the mask is just about seeing how high we'll jump is like saying the Giant Baatard Villain is so evil he'll TEAR UP YOUR NECTAR POINTS, rather than, I dunno, kill a load of people. If you're going down this path at the fucking least go whole hog and say vaccines are alien serum injectors or something.

This is the same mask that for much of the year has not been compulsory, right? The same mask that people who don't wear rarely get punished, right? Get in the fucking sea you fucking child.

Total lack of imagination, classic case of 'read a few Wikipedia pages and have an overdeveloped sense of self, here's my worldview'.

If you take it to further logical steps, then wearing any clothing at all in public is a form of "submission". And I'd like to see those rat-lickers try and practice that at this time of year.

If you live in society, you accept limitations on your freedom in return for social harmony.

As Terry Pratchett said, natural is sitting in a tree waiting for your dinner to die.

And back to Rod Hull, can't help noticing that Emu quite often attacked certain areas of the anatomy. Which in retrospect, is a bit unsettling.

Billy Connolly of course had the best response when they were both on Parkinson. As Emu lunged, he grabbed the bird and said to Rod, "Try that again, and I'll break his neck and your arm."

Andrew Neil's turning into the new Alan Sked. Seeing his project usurped by Fargle and any standards or intellectual pretensions ousted in favour of populist junk.

I've seen a few people say that, with 20:20 hindsight and enough time elapsed for the suspension of disbelief to wear off.

I can imagine this will be used as justification for... something.

Almost 70 medics who attended a large Christmas party in southern Spain have since tested positive for Covid-19, authorities say.

Most of the 68 infected are doctors and nurses working in the intensive care unit at Málaga's regional hospital.
