Good lordy, lord - is there really a conspiracy theory that denies the existence of Finland, I mean I’ve been there. Visited Santa Claus and everything. Although admittedly I am a deep state cultural Marxist Illuminati lizard, so perhaps you should doubt me…

Quoted @Renew_Democracy

“Democracy is the worst form of gov't, except for all the others.” It doesn’t come without warts & rough edges. But they should be celebrated & smoothed out, because it’s all we've got. What does democracy mean to you? Join us and @stephenfry for the #RenewDemocracy challenge!

A few burbling words trying to pin down what democracy means to me ... I'm sure you've got something better, but perhaps you agree that whatever it means, it's worth saving #renewdemocracy

This quiz claims to predict your age, height and birth sign. I got: “We reckon you’re a teenager and are 5’1”. You’re also a Leo.” Hmm. I suppose it could be wronger, but not much via @ExCoPlatform

My beloved country. Tweet about a political cataclysm across the water… a few hundred likes. Tweet about After Eight mints … EXPLOSION. Imagine if I’d posted something about Percy Pigs or Hob Nobs…

You know Christmas is truly over when your fingers riffle through a box of After Eights and all the little envelopes are empty. Every single one … *sob*

A lockdown treat! Who, amid the misery and the cold, would not want to hear @stephenfry bring a touch of the Aegean to @TheRestHistory? Here is talking about his trilogy of books on Greek myths.

My Shakespeare quote of the day popped up just now

PROSPERO: Do not infest your mind with beating on
The strangeness of this business.

I’m afraid on this occasion I just can’t comply. My infested mind is very much beating on the strangeness of this business … oy...

Quoted @Renew_Democracy

Don't look away.

This isn't normal.

This isn't democracy.

This is a failed coup.

Despite Georgia, Trump claims he will "never concede" and calls more thugs to arms. Meanwhile lickspittle Republicans prepare to thrust another spear into the side of an already wounded democracy. But there's always something that can be done – #NilDesperandum

A treat for you: @alexander_olly on fire in this scene from Ep 2, as is @russelldavies63's script. BTW, it was written and the production wrapped BEFORE the world had heard of COVID. Any parallels are ....

My friend @pettore found this – foreign travel by desktop. Rather delightful.

Visit the world while at home
Just click on the city in the list on the right to see what that city is like.
Pick the city of your choice from the list in the upper left.

Amazon, you don't really know me as well as you think you do. I know I'm a mug, but when this (certainly fine) book (a war diary by John Guest) can be found elsewhere for $17.50, even I will baulk at topping up Mr Bezos's bank balance to much an extent. Bother someone else please
