Slapped down: David Cameron faces hostility in TV interrogation

Best laugh I've had all week. Sample:

Quote

...

The thing was, Dave insisted, the whole problem was that our economy was just too damn successful. If only we had been in recession, then nobody would have come and everything would have been hunky-dory. If he had been guilty of anything, it was of being too brilliant a prime minister. But since the economy was so magnificent, we may as well make the best of it and not do anything stupid like leaving the EU. Dave punched the air. He had got off immigration and on to his strong card: Project Fear.

Islam wasn’t having any of it, though. “You’ve broken your manifesto promises on immigration.” “I think you’ll find they were only manifesto ambitions, so I haven’t technically broken anything,” Dave replied.

...

So, now we know: Turkey's joining the EU in year 3000 is only an "ambition".  When it actually bribes its way in  - as Dave is ever burrowing hard to facilitate - in eighteen months time, it won't be (another) Dodgy Dave broken promise, it will simply be a cruelly dashed ambition.  :D

You can practically see the brain working there. Before every single phrase he's thinking how are these next few words going to affect my place in history.

Like Cameron - yesterday's man!

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
