markerPragmatic move
As winter down under ends, the Australian government is considering opening Banzai Beach, where there will be no lifeguards and no marshals to enforce smart spacing, and trippers will be required to quarantine @ home for 14 days after a visit at their own risk.

bulletQ: How do you shed the job of EbloodyU trade commissioner?
bulletA: Go home to Ireland and play golf, and don't quarantine when you get back to Bruxelles, Belgien.

tick symbol The former Aussie PM, who's going to be Britain's trade guy post-Brexit, seems well qualified for the gig. He's upset all of the right Those People for a start. Should do a grand job.

bulletQ: How does Norway get a free trade deal with China?
bulletA: By agreeing not to give any more Nobel Peace Prizes to Chinese dissenters.

markerDe-evolution progresses . . .
More and more people aged 60 & over are climbing Mount Everest. Which suggests that whatever it is that is making such wonks out of snoflakes can also deprive oldies of any good sense they might have garnered during life's trek.

bulletQ: How do they tackle the Chinese Plague in Germany?
bulletA: By holding demos against it in Berlin. The same thing is also going on in neighbouring Switzerland.

markerFroth & bubble
Wee Burney First Meenister is planning to use the crisis caused by the Chinese plague as a vehicle for addressing the many deep-seated challenges that Scotland faces.
   No. 1 on her list should be the challenge of making the country self-sufficient and not reliant on handouts from English taxpayers. This is a vital pre-condition if she is ever to promote herself to the status of Wee First President.

markerReality bites
The Labour party in Scotland has realized that Scexit from the UK would lead to turbo-charged austerity there. Nothing like a dose of opposition for confronting politicians with the realities of reality.

markerThe end of country life as we kno it
Farming is heading for Xtinction, especially in Scotland, the Xperts reckon. The combination of the Chinese plague, Brexit and gorbal warming is creating a slump in confidence, which is leaving farm workers unable to get out of bed in the morning.
   The only hope for the nation's food supply now is hydroponic farming on an industrial scale near cities—reducing the length of the transport chain—to produce grain and vegetables in sufficient quantities. And trade deals with Australia, Denmark and New Zealand to top up depleted supplies of meats of all descriptions.

bulletQ: You teach @ a university and you don't want to go back to work because you like being paid to lounge about a home—what do you do?
bulletA: Confect a scare story about reopening universities causing a Chinese plague avalanche due to clottish students putting themselves about and forgetting safe spacing because they're too drunk or drugged up to know what day it is.

markerLost era
laughing manThe Fast Show retrospective on the Gold Chanel at the bank holiday weekend; and eternally On Demand; served as a reminder that it was possible to create a first-rate TV comedy show without diversity as late as the mid-1990s. These days, there would be a token white bloke in the cast; a real miserable bugger; who would also be the token bloke.
reader comment“Seeing ancient clips from The Fast Show underlines the merits of focussing on the material—rather than attempting to include every minority and gang in the cast for virtue's sake and producing something which is mostly crap.” Emma Luvvy

Far Queue symbol We seem to have done a good job of upsetting the French, who are now in the process of trying to collapse the Brexit trade talks because we won't let them fish in our waters as of right and subscribe to rules made in Brussels with no consultation.

marker A good way to skive off school these days is get yourself sent home for joke coughing.

markerbullet Up to 90% of the people diagnosed as having a case of the Chinese plague might not be carrying enough of the virus to infect other people, the Xperts are now telling us. Which means that the testing that's being done; or not done, in some cases; is largely cosmetic and a waste of time and taxpayer's cash.

Sandwich bar companies are shedding staff by the thousand because people are skiving at home instead of going to work in cities and buying sandwiches.
   At the other end of the business, companies which create the materials to go into sandwiches are closing down their production facilities due to outbreaks of the Chinese plague.
   Result? There are no people to make sandwiches, nothing to go in them anyway and no one buying them. A perfect balance.

For the benefit of anyone wondering why shrinkologist S. Freud's private and office rooms have been opened to the public in Vienna without furniture—it's not to prevent people with the Chinese plague from parking on it and contaminating it. The real reason is that Freud took all of his stuff all with him when he moved to London when World War II hotted up and the organizers are too mean to replace it.

Taxing the demand for handy plastic bags is being touted as Saving The Planet. But let us not forget that the UK is just one of 192 nation states (at the last count). Which means that the argument for carbon dioxide emissions applies here. Reducing ours to zero makes bugger all difference if no bugger else does the same. Same with plastic bags.

Scottish health board managers, who sent untested patients back to care homes, ignoring an instruction from the Health Minister that they should first have had 2 negative test results for the Chinese plague, could face manslaughter charges over deaths from the plague in those care homes.

UNKerching!
Following President Trump's lead, President Boris is cutting off some of the World Health Organization's pocket money until it comes up with the truth about the origin of the Chinese plague. Which will be rather difficult as the WHO is in China's hip pocket.

markerPresident Trump's candidate for the vacancy in the US Supreme Court is a mere slip of a girl who's only 48 years old. Which means she'll have job security until 2059, if she lasts as long as the previous incumbent.

Passengers in taxis might be required to wear face masks but passengers in chauffeur-driven limos aren't.

markerHearts not bleeding
The lawyers who confect bogus claims of torture and murder by British troops abroad are trying to claim that the Defence Sec.'s legal limitations on their practices amounts of legalizing torture & murder rather than impoverishing crooked lawyers. Good luck with that.

The high death tolls from the Chinese plague in Sweden and the UK are being blamed on the Revenge of The Universe. Both countries have been successful in reducing winter flu deaths in the last few years and the people dying of the Chinese plague are mainly flu dodgers.
   Alternatively, letting flu run rampant protects any survivors from the Chinese plague. Pick any view you like and there will be Xperts available to support it.

Sir Kreepy Steamer will be making a grovelling apology to the nation for pretending that he has the answers to absolutely everything. Preferably, on both knees.

reader comment“You have to start wondering about the agenda of pundits who moan that the government was saying "Do this" a month ago, when things were different, and it is now saying "Do that" because circumstances have changed. Is it just 'look at me' attention-seeking or are they getting something more for their services?” Bigard Lasfeme

reader comment“What is the point of fining a hospital trust £1,600 plus £10,965 for legal stuff for killing a customer? That's £12,565 that the trust won't be able to spend on treating customers and paying staff. How does that benefit the surviving and future customers?” Mridian Canape

All Those People who claim that the pyramids were built with slave labour; possibly, to sabotage tourism to Egypt; have clearly never seen the TV programmes telling us that they were built by artisans, who made a good living out of the job and were allowed to create their own, much more modest tombs nearby.

Below the line mission statement: Some of the above is true.
   We are constantly exposed to dodgy conclusions drawn from dodgy data by the 'experts', especially those found in the world of politics and especially those at the Treasury and in opposition. Some of us civilians at BFN like to join in to let them know that anyone can do it and we ain't impressed by their efforts.
