A really excellent article from Robert Magowan in the @[email protected]:

"[bullshit jobs] generate a desire for β€œcompensation” through more intense, high-carbon leisure: short-lived thrills and spills such as weekends away."


One is an insane psychopath who seems to take pleasure from the deaths of others, the other is Michael Myers from the Halloween films.

I never thought I'd say this, but can I hear more from Theresa please?

For full clarity here πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ:
πŸ’· FDR's new deal involved a total spend of about Β£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
🌳 FDR planted 3bn trees, not 30mn (most of which are already planned and were in the Conservative Party's manifesto – so not news)

Anyone with any understanding of behavioural psychology could see this was inevitable after Tuesday's briefing. @[email protected]'s nuances were obviously going to be ignored, and to say measures will be eased on a future date is read as "now". πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ theguardian.com/world/2020/jun

'...shortly before Marcus Rashford was born to a single mother who he idolises for her tireless work and sacrifices, Boris Johnson was writing that single mothers were producing a generation of "ill-raised, ignorant, aggressive and illegitimate children".' theguardian.com/commentisfree/

It's open to interpretation, and I understand why you would want to come to that conclusion. But I'm afraid I think you're wrong. I would point to the examples of some people in more "progressive" countries who aren't seeing this sort of thing.

As I've explained elsewhere, I don't use Google and wasn't logged in when I did this. This is the result of an anonymous search and friends elsewhere in the UK have confirmed that they see the same.

I don't use Google, these are the results I see when I use it anonymously in the UK. A friend in another part of the UK sees the same.
@feld @GidiKroon

@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.

@feld @jasper @GidiKroon I don't think Google should censor this by the way. I'm just depressed to have it confirmed that – at least here in the UK – I'm surrounded by racists.

@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.
