Friday Links: May ends in June

Happy Friday!

Well May is going to stop being the Prime Minister in June and Boris Johnson has announced that he’s going to run for the leadership of the Tory Party. Folks, you know your country is completely fucked when Boris Johnson stands a chance of running the country. For the last three years, I’ve been embarrassed and that’s about to get worse….

Here are this week’s links

Grand Parc, Bordeaux review – a rush of light, air and views When you look at the photos, you wonder what the point is, but when you watch the video, you realise what a transformation increasing the living area of a flat by 3.8 meters and adding light and outdoor space makes to how you live in a flat. I’m so impressed…

The polls are clear – Labour’s Brexit tactics are failing spectacularly. Fish or cut bait, Corbyn needs to accept a policy he doesn’t personally support because his party does or he needs to resign. Anything else just leaves this Tory mess in place.

Richer Sounds founder hands over control of hi-fi and TV firm to staff. Actually doing what you said you were going to do, well done!

We froze the salaries of 20 executives – and it improved the lives of 500 employees.

Don’t talk about ‘food poverty’ – it’s just poverty

The GOP Has Its Final Anti-Abortion Victory in Sight. It’s the blatant subversion of the ideals they claim America is founded on that I can’t quite get my head around….

Coming soon: the great universal credit deception

Russia Has Americans’ Weaknesses All Figured Out

How Istanbul’s mayoral elections are shaping the future of Erdoğan’s Turkey

James Brokenshire can talk his ovens down all he likes, but there will still be four of them, not two

A vegetarian has a beef with Tesco’s labelling. This is hilarious. Complains that he has been eating a beef product for a couple of months, finds out that it’s been years because he didn’t realise that collegen is derived from animals…..

The Supreme Court’s Worst Decision of My Tenure. One of the things that fascinates me about humans, is how we can take the same text and interpret it in vastly different ways. I happen to believe that a plain text reading of the 2nd Amendment, would support the ownership of firearms only if the owners were part of a militia but that is my interpretation.

Farage calls for private health firms to ‘relieve burden on NHS’. I’m just going to say it again, Farage is an untrustworthy liar, he’s not in it for principle, he’s in it to try and get richer. He’ll do that by making life miserable for the working class he claims to speak for. He’s never been on your side and it’s always someone else’s fault. He’s lazy, work-shy (go and have a look at his attendance at the EU Parliament) and only interested in his own consequence. Don’t fall for this nonsense.

Sexual abuse charities need money – but not from Tommy Robinson

North-east England is not ablaze with Brexit – it’s just a symbol
