    Did “Flatten the Curve” influence NS to get-her-finger-out and engage in some decisive action all those months ago? I, for one, wouldn’t be surprised. Don’t stop now, Lorna!

    After watching Channel 4’s Dispatches on the USAmerican food import horrors we can expect after the British government cave in on their trade deal, I expect starving the UK masses is part of the required softening-up process. Their shitburgers may poison, infect, sterilize and even kill you (think of it as an exciting new lottery game), but at least you’ll not be starving.

    I once read a few years ago of a msp, once claim ,a food allowance, of £600 pound for a weekend ,this was at his second homes address, that is only used at the weekend I never found. Out if he had claims for his home address to receive a food allowance ,yet they can vote for free. Dinners. For themselves.
