Jesus you're miserable, take a happy pill.

Brexit only recently came into effect, get a grip.

i mean if you live in the UK the '£350 million' jokes got old about 2 years ago, dilbert.

it's slightly cringe watching you plug facebook memes in 2020.

that's 'multiculturalism' like the fucking carthaginians and romans were 'multiculturalism', dilbert.

the term has absolutely no meaning the way you use it. 'races shouldn't mix'. china delenda est!!!

here's your fortnightly dose of the LRB. ferdinand mount on boris johnson's first 6 months. pretty withering stuff -- especially coming from a figure like mount!

the UK govt have been dragging their feet on an incredibly damaging 'russia report'. boris suffered a major defeat this week after he tried to cook the appointment process for the senior UK intelligence committee in charge of this sort of thing, by nominating a floating turd (chris grayling) to be its chairman. by some hook and crook the parliamentarians managed to give the post to someone else -- another major defeat for BoJo's project. hopefully we can now hope to see some very damning stuff about russia by the end of the year.

in the meantime, it's clear that they've tried to interfere in our elections as much as in the USA.

What were the demographics of European COVID victims? In the U.S., minorities especially poor ones seem to be getting the brunt of it. I don't think COVID is racist but I assume low wage and essential workers are mostly minority and have the highest exposure. Were poor white Europeans the major victim over there?

re: boris' performance

I remember some amount of celebration from Republicans here in the states about BoJo's victorious run because he comes from the "conservative party." The magical word.

"Ya wanna be careful if you mess with Boris!" Strong figure indeed.

This correlates with rates of chronic illness in general. Greater exposure is one factor, but also consider the factors that make minorities at greater risk for chronic and degenerative illness: access to decent food, healthcare, and of course generational trauma/suppression of historical identity- most clearly seen on Native American reservations.

Russia has been playing the long game.

Here its exploded in the wog communities, they have low paid grubby jobs, cramped housing and won't change their behaviour - third-generation greeks/italians/lebanese still won't change.

Anecdotally we went to a greek restaurant and the dumb fat greek owner grabbed, hugged and kissed every guest she knew and tried to hug us - four months into a pandemic.

I haven't been to a restaurant since at least November. Four months into 2020, you'd have had to drag me kicking and screaming.

no, it was far more dangerous for black and middle eastern minorities here. mostly correlates with poverty and hence poor living standards and chronic illness.

air pollution was a big part, too. people living in congested urban neighbourhoods had much worse death statistics.

They also work contact jobs more often. Plus the community seems either oblivious or ignorant of the whole thing. As soon as I enter the immigrant neighbourhoods here it's as if there never was any covid.

The bulk of the community transmission in Australia has been caused by ethnic groups refusing to abide by govt guidelines or legislation.
Its as if they're stupid or something.
