Does Johnson even know how many "Ministers of Children and Families" he even has? ;)
This place is not a place of honor, no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here, nothing valued is here.
What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us.
This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.

Laura Lady Kenny DBE, as she is apparently now styled, won her 5 Olympic gold medals in the open Olympics, not the Paralympics.

Not sure if I can provide anything more insightful than glee and a general sense of joy when a particularly vicious barb lands.

I liked that line. And criticising those staying on as the charge of the lightweight brigade, which is having his cake and eating it.

Stinking shits, more than sinking ships; but it's a good line nonetheless

At first glance, I'm not really sure what the value of BTL is for stories like this, but I was taken by this one

Spoilered as it's long
Spoiler:
My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!

I didn't see Johnson sacking someone who hadn't *publicly* called for his resignation.
