Happy Monday!

We start the week by doing the weekly shopping with James and Toby – without masks, of course.

According to the government today is “Happy Monday,” with a limited return to outdoor sport and tea in the garden with the neighbors. But that’s always “the variants” lurking around the corner… lurking like a balloon animal stuffed with walnuts coming after your puppy. (That story has a better ending than Freddie the Hammersmith seal.)

The Free Speech Union is on the case of the Batley Grammar School teacher that was suspended for sharing the Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoons with his students, especially after he was doxxed by a charity. Then they comment on the Sunday Mirror story about the PM’s alleged affair with an American when he was Mayor of London.

In the “Culture Corner” we continue with the Arthurian trilogy of Bernard Cornwell and on telly Toby is watching The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+). Meanwhile, musical notation has become… (wait for it…) racist.

Opening sound is from the PM’s press conference on “Happy Monday.”
