    I read an article where Sweden's Anders Tegnell, when asked why Sweden had a disproportionately higher death rate than its neighbours, answered that some countries were just ahead of others in the course of the epidemic.
    Those backwards neighbours with their tiny death rates .... just trying to catch up with Sweden, who are leading the way as usual.

    Could work if you remain nebulous about it;
    There is another kind of pensioner, not you, who is draining the purse. You know which kind. Just vote for me and let me deal with it. I'll make sure to look after your interests, really, you've got no reason to worry about this.

    Very good link.
    So my immediate impression is a fiscal conservative at heart, the rest of his policies are just humming along to whichever knee jerk right wing cause can keep him in power. No need to really read the paperwork, no real passion or independent thought on the matter.

    The fiscal conservative, upper class thing seems to run deep with him though. The sense that the people currently enjoying affluent lives are the only ones worth investing in, as proven by their success. The rest are lost causes that need to be kept in check less they drain our resources even further.

    Growth opportunities exist, but only where we cut red tape for existing businesses. Let's not be childish and invest tax money in people/infrastructure/research etc.

    Coincidentally, a bit of well managed pruning could be the best way to lessen the impact of the next forest fire.

    Yeah, I generally avoid reading the wiki entries for living people.

    Can any one post a decent link or two to give me an idea of this Raab chap? Never got a clear impression of what kind of person he is.

    I wish him a full recovery. So that he can live to see to what extent he fucked up.

    I'd say build sheds or buy fake eyelashes as you would otherwise. It still helps to pay someone's bills.
    Be prepared to wait longer than usual for your stuff to turn up.
