We're All In the Same Boat... Since Lockdown, some people keep saying this, but then i thought, we may be in a boat of sorts, but some are in their own Yacht, some stuck on Cruse Ship & some in a Dingy.. so it does not make sense..Any others??
What are the main challenges facing the new government? You mean apart from a total lack of political nous and knowledge of the real world? The central problem is the lack of true radicalism. When this country was great, we didn't have the welfare state, a National Health Service or free education. What we did have was an empire, no income tax and a fucking big navy. You don't need a PhD to work it out, do you?

"Unprecedented times" or, as the woman who makes the PA announcements in my local Asda likes to say; "unpresidented times".
I'd like think that in doing this, she's making a surreptitious mordant comment on the current state of American democracy and the current incumbent of a role often described as 'leader of the free world'.
