A really excellent article from Robert Magowan in the @[email protected]:
"[bullshit jobs] generate a desire for “compensation” through more intense, high-carbon leisure: short-lived thrills and spills such as weekends away."
Ah, @[email protected] are an excellent antidote to 2020.
For full clarity here 🤦🏻♂️:
💷 FDR's new deal involved a total spend of about £600bn in today's money, not 5
🏫 NAO said it would cost £6.7 billion to "to return all school buildings to satisfactory or better condition". Johnson's plan offers £1bn

That's why I was searching his name in the first place.
@gerowen Same, I searched this anonymously without ever using Google – so this is entirely based on my geography. Someone else in the UK brought this to my attention as they were seeing the same thing.
@lo That these are the most popular searches from where I'm searching here in the UK stinks of racism to me. I suspect very few people made similar searches to this when a white newspaper vendor was killed by police in London in 2009.
