We've just spent a very productive hour de-Christmas-ing the house, taking the decorations down. For some reason the bit I always enjoy the most is packing all of the old Baubles way in a box and putting them back in the attic until next time.
Happy New Year everyone (yes Bob, that includes you!)

I just hope I will still have some baubles, when it is all over.

Thanks Jrac, much appreciated. 10 days to go.

Had my itn C licence renowal this morning, worked a treat (well, almost…), took only two hours to be able to load it from the website, will receive the plastic card by post. Not bad at all. Price 585 € with basic insurance and annual club fee (mandatory but could have chosen a cheaper one). No doubt this service is improved.

Nowt to do with motorsport - but I've just watched the last of the BBC dramatisation of the Stephen Port murder case, and then the factual investigation into just how badly the Barking and Dagenham Police handled the whole investigation.......or lack thereof.....


I don't think I'm closely in touch with my inner gay feelings, but I have to say I feel incredibly annoyed that so far none of the police who quite happily shrugged off a series of almost identical deaths as "not suspicious", and refused to engage with concerned friends and relatives, have been disciplined, although many were found to have had "failings"......


Ah well, no doubt "lessons will be learned"

Lancs, you've hit the nail on the head here. "Quid custodiet custodiens."

No one in a position of responsibility ever accepts responsibility. No disciplinary action, no resignation. It's been endemic through society up to and including governmental level for years.

When I was still serving in PJHQ, the National military HQ, we used to have to do “after action reports” for all incidents, operations and exercise. We purposely changed the section of the report from “Lessons Learnt” to “Lesson Identified” on the basis that we usually identified the lessons needing to be learnt, but very rarely actually learnt them.

Exactly what we're doing here, in fact not doing, with the virus. Two years ago, the prez said "its a war", now we know we are ready to have at least one Waterloo per week if not a day…

I think our little 'prez' is at war with just about everybody at the moment, whether it is the skiing industry after banning ritish visitors without warning, provocatively flying a German flag over the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, ot hurling abuse at a large part of the population!

He sure wants to get re-elected!

Unfortunately, John, I think he will be re-elected. Opposition parties are almost nothing atm… Pauvre France.

I know very little about Macron/ French politics, but he can’t be worse than Johnson, surely?
