    Things about to really heat in up Canada so- trucker’s convoy on the move for weekend protest. Estimated 50 000 trucks rolling into Ottawa and staying until all vaccine mandates are removed.

    Trudeau has called the truckers terrorists and instructed gofundme to block access to the funds raised- $4.7 million.

    Popcorn time.

    lol g’wan the paper of record with that lead story!

    with the usual [insert whenever there’s hassles] puff piece about the millionbillion jobs the Govt/IDA are gonna potentially “generate”

    so don’t you worry your lil heads about:
    – your Govt’s nonperformance on the bread and butter stuff
    – the inflation “generalised cost of living increases” that’s on yer backs
    – the house you’ll never ever own
    – the at least 250 drugged kids in Kerry and the shredded missing paperwork
    – all that waffle out of Varadker on wfh matters or those abused women who filleted Coveney so publicly yesterday or the Russian boats that are parking up over the undersea cables and the gas lines
    etc. etc.

    ‘cos everything is awesome!

      Sure they’ll do comparisons with 2020 to make it easy to spin.

      60,000 increase new Jobseekers Allowance / Jobseekers benefits over an eight week period up to April 24th 2020. (That’s not the PUP either – it’s actual job losses in that 8 weeks.) How many more were lost in the following months to end of 2020. Yep, they’ll spin the return to work as ‘new’ jobs.

    Today sees a return of our old hashtag friend #despitebrexit as a report finds nine in ten major financial services firms plan to establish or boost operations in the City of London.
    Nearly 90pc of major financial services firms said they will either seek to set up shop in Britain or boost their current operations, according to a report by EY.
    The survey found that investor confidence in the UK financial services sector was at an all-time high, having risen significantly in recent months as pandemic restrictions recede and Brexit fears fail to materialise.
    Before the 2016 referendum, finance chiefs warned that as many as 232,000 jobs in the City would be lost. However, a mass exodus of finance jobs out of London has failed to materialise.
    According to the Daily Telegraph the EY report also found that sentiment around planned investment into UK financial services has risen significantly in recent months as Britain becomes one of the first countries in Europe to relax pandemic restrictions.
    Another report also published today revealed that Britain’s success in developing Covid-19 vaccines and mutation-tracking kits lured more foreign backers to the UK last year, driving investment in the country’s biotechs to record-breaking highs.
    Industry chiefs said the UK’s industry was entering its “golden age” after figures from the BioIndustry Association (BIA) showed biotech and life sciences companies secured £4.5bn in public and private fundraisings in 2021 – a 60pc spike on the prior year.
    Marvellous news and all down to the leadership of Boris.
    Give the poor man a drink to celebrate.

        It’s behind a paywall.
        I’m going to take a stab in the dark here and guess you don’t pay for news …

        1. GiggidyGoo

          Don’t need to. The article free for 24 hrs if you supply your email address.
          Do try and keep up.

          1. TenPin Terry

            Actually any article behind the paywall is free with any email address.
            Let’s call a spade a spade …

          2. GiggidyGoo

            So you pay for news when you don’t have to? Clever boy.
            Yep. What do you call your spade – ‘spade’? Keep digging.

      I coached you yesterday Charger. The busy periods are in the evening – you have to allow for trucks getting loaded. Do try and keep up. 6 km queue last evening if you looked at the same cameras.

      Stick with your fellow idiot, Robert Kimbell who gave us this type of advice when he saw the queues

      “This is why companies in Britain should ship their goods to the EU rather than have them transported on lorries by road. Probably quicker and better for the environment too.”

      My oh my. Such a level of intelligence. Maybe worth calling Time on him?

      1. TenPin Terry

        So what you’re saying is that a busy port gets busy at busy times.
        And even busier when there’s more freight than expected ( bloomin’ Brexit ), ferries are out of service for annual repairs and there’s road works.
        But other than that 6kms tailbacks are perfectly normal say port authorities.
        And currently the Channel Tunnel is running smoothly without any delays.
        Thanks for clearing that up.I was losing sleep over it …

        Ah – you’re learning. Lame response still though. No-one said that the current queues were all day long., nor did I say anything about when there’s more freight than expected.

        The queues happen for freight going through Dover. Who mentioned the Channel Tunnel? The Channel Tunnel is Folkestone.

        Do try to keep up

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Same as yesterday then – when you’ve run out of road, post a link.
            I don’t mind coaching you though. You can forward on my coaching to your partner in thickness, Robert Kimbell if you like.
            ROFL!

          2. TenPin Terry

            It’s certainly clear the truckers around Dover haven’t run out of road today …
            Back of the net !

    In media news all Sun sub-editors and art desk staff in Scotland and Ireland are to made redundant with their work (story editing , headline writing and page design) to be switched to London.
    Go woke, go broke.
