    We had to set some rules for the data that we spit out for our clients. The first and most important one got christened 'the prime directive'.

    I was the only person who had no idea where that came from.

      It's going to make zero difference to the election, but the NYTimes has a really impressive piece on the sprawling swap of corruption Trump wallows in: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...ies-swamp.html

        Donnie drifting quite appreciably in the last 36 hours. Now 3.35 on BF with Biden 1.4.

        Signs the GOP are giving up on him too. Could be quite the enjoyable run-in over the next three weeks as the Trump implosion goes nuclear. He was never going to go quietly was he....

          Starting to feel a little optimistic but the stakes are so high and the electorate so incredibly dumb that I won't relax until the inauguration is done and dusted.

          Do people believe that he actually has beaten covid or have things not been quite as they have been presented over the last week?

            For anyone with Play Music or Spotify, listen to a track called 'Let me let you down' by The Teskey Brothers.

            Don't Google them, don't look for it on YouTube, play it, enjoy it, then Google them.

            Been listening to that track for the last week or two. Got around to googling them last night and my head asploded.

                Best mates daughter (21) tested positive , both he and the mrs have flu like symptoms getting tested tomorrow. Reckons theyre over the worst of it but they're only symptomatic since Friday. From what I have read it can deteriorate rapidly though and that often happens after the first week when people think they're grand.

                  He seems to be having a busier more energetic schedule post covid than Sleepy Joe ever had.

                    Yes, he's really turning things around.

                                        The number of patients with Covid-19 in intensive care has increased by half in the space of a week.

                                        There were 30 virus patients in ICU this morning, according to the Government’s data hub, down one from yesterday but up 10 on a week ago.

                                        Hospitalisations are up 80 per cent over the past week, to 221 this morning from 120 a week ago.

                                              I heard Trump wanted to wear a superman vest under his shirt and reveal it on the White House balcony. Imagine the flood of sperm in Dennys trousers . Insert South Park pic.

                                                  I checked and indeed her book has it. Has the DoE invented a new word?

This induces a certain scepticism in females as to my knowledge in this area.
