the comment on the acn plant was not necessary, but neither was it incorrect. it was just an aside, in parentheses. however, it is your sole focus.

but I am glad to know that you also think zorg was being a weasel.

the brexit dirty protest in cell block z goes on.

how many nobel prize winners are there and how likely are they to be unhappy where they are or want to move to the uk anyway? it's not really much of thing. as far science nobels go, there have only been 22 women winners in history. no black people, apparently. I'm not suggesting science isn't important, but....

they've got a scheme for oscar winners, too, you know.

interesting discussion on the government / civil service approach to science re the pandemic on today, incidentally. the government is generally absolutely shit. brexit not mentioned, but.... they're just ignorant.
Not just Nobel Prize winners and Oscars. Bit of a surprise nobody from the following list applied surely?

Someone do a tale of the tape.

Must have missed those brexit benefits.

Waiting for the Lambo drivers to turn up once they've got the pallets off their lorries.

To be fair you really really really have missed out on the Brexit benefits.

Just listening to you makes me wish i'd voted remain.
