    AldiLidl were selling pet tipis just before Christmas, so I bought one. It took a couple of days and some applications of cat nip, but she bloody loves it. Even tho it’s maybe a wee bit too small for her.

    Not sure the Stamford Hill community would go to such lengths, they’d probably have a nice brazier or something on the pavement.

    Anyway, here’s the Home Secretary this afternoon, transcribed verbatim, when asked why the UK has such an appalling death rate from Covid:

    Was just going to say that. The ultra-orthodox around there (just up the road from work) are a law unto themselves in certain ways. They won’t take any notice of a mere orthodox rabbi, not when you take your laws directly from God himself. We’ve had some of the local community come into my shop without masks and when asked to put one on they seem flabbergasted, as though it hadn’t occurred to them. So I just don’t let them in.

    Lovely people generally, but a tad eccentric.

    Fucking hell. I was right, it’s more a cult. It’s all too easy to say Americans are mental, but Jesus....

    Got this from my friend last night in response to my post about the Great Awakening website. She’s born and bred in Las Vegas, has lived here for 20 years. Her mother and stepfather have gone full-on Trumpian batshit, and they’re not even on speaking terms now.

    “I just can't because, as you know, it all hits too close to home which makes me want to burst into tears and hire a deprogrammer.”

    I don’t think they realise how close to fascism they are; it seems more like a cult to my eyes. Reading some of the stuff on that site really brings home how deep some of these people buy into it. Christ knows how they come back from that.

    Cheap land innit? Developers can drain it, put a rudimentary drainage system in place, build houses and hope that no-one looks at the small print. It’s been going on for years. All you can do about it is bring it to people’s attention and hope no-one falls for it.
