    Hi BS,

      1. Clampers Outside

        Two lads with ppe masks taking a type of trolley out a door of some place with a purple welcome sign by the door.

          Bedding removal at Clondalkin Towers Direct Provision Centre. My error. Sorry, Clampers and all.

    A flag at “half mast” isn’t usually half-way down the pole.
    The original idea was to leave enough room for the flag of death above your flag – it is one flag-height below the top of the pole.
