Wasps can recognize faces. So are very intelligent! They sting when they feel threatened, so don’t start waving your arms at them! If they are drunk from supping fermenting fruit, just step away! nationalgeographic.com/cultu… via @NatGeo

Thanks to the Mail for doing what the BBC could not bring itself to do: recognising that it was @GoodLawProject that exposed Bethell's use of private emails (and Johnson's falsehoods about it).

Govt is controlling output of information so that British people are kept in the dark about the reality of what Brexit is doing to businesses. Our food system has been severely kneecapped by Brexit/Covid, leaving us in worst of health to withstand looming gas/fertiliser crisis.
BBC News cut this business woman’s criticism of Brexit… …so BylineTV went to Stockport to show what the BBC wouldn’t.

"Mental health" has been weaponised, and is now being used to justify the abandonment of all caution in the face of a virus that's killing us at the rate of 73,365 per year. "Mental health" in contemporary Britain has come to mean denial of reality. "Mental health" is deadly.

Conservatives don't build things, they carve them up and sell them off or close them down. If the Tories wanted to build back better, they could have started when they took office in 2010. Instead they've delivered 11 years of ever-worsening hunger, poverty, division and despair.

Sad to hear that Clive Sinclair has died. The ZX81 was my introduction to computing and I loved it! Started out with a 1k version and eventually saved up for a 16k ram pack - thank you Clive !
