Cynical man that I am, I wonder if the Windrush Scandal coming to light a week before local elections ....

I can understand the cynicism, just not the faith in the current government's competence.  Let's face it, if you got an invite from them to an all night drinking session at your local brewery, you'd make sure you took a hell of a lot of booze with you, wouldn't you? (Actually, I'd be more likely to tell them where to go but that's another story).

This Windrush debacle has been my first forced, sad admission that the BBC has fallen a long way from what it should be doing. Every day another story about Corbyn & Anti-semitism allegations is pinned to the UK News front page, but they've sidelined Windrush into minor articles that never get stuck to the main pages and repeat the governments (exposed) lies from the first couple of days.

If it wasn't for Channel 4 et al, they'd have been able to kick this into the bushes like everything else.

Used to think the BBC was only slightly guilty and its bias ultimately balanced out, but last few years have been something else. The omnishambles carries on and on without mention, even where it prominently causes scandalous harm and distress for no reason other than more omnishambles and xenophobia.

No wonder people keep voting Tory.

Jings, that Fox and Friends 'interview' was something to behold.  If some septuagenarian with a badly dyed combover started ranting like that on the bus, I'd get off several stops early. How could anyone want that incoherent crank as their First Citizen?

On the plus side, by publicly stating that Cohen wasn’t his lawyer and that they only had a ‘business relationship’, he’s just completely torpedoed any thought of invoking attorney/client privilege in his dealings with Trump.

Cynical man that I am, I wonder if the Windrush Scandal coming to light a week before local elections in which the Tories will be heavily reliant upon a core base of racists is just a coincidence or actual design.

and the whole sex-district thing was awkward (Jessica Rabbit cosplay included) in what was otherwise a kids' film.

I would argue so was Valerian's serial sexual harassment of co-workers, for which he is ultimately rewarded.

True, but like I said, very retro tone, of which this is a large part.

Yeah, Valerian was much better than I thought with some very inventive stuff in it. Luc Besson is infuriating. For Me, Subway remains his masterpiece.
