    Well, Freddie, You Probably Couldn't See For The Lights But You Were Staring Straight At Me.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Meanwhile, the UK‘s new Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth affairs cannot even hold a telephone properly.

    Might be a good negotiation tactic though, when having to deal with Vladimir Putin:

    The BBC had a list of approval ratings from Conservative Party members for each cabinet member yesterday.

    Weirdly, Liz Truss had the highest approval rate. Johnson and Patel were somewhere in the middle, Sunak was second, and Raab was bottom.

    I've no idea why Truss is so highly thought of amongst the membership. She seems extremely forgettable.

    Especially because her surname sounds like 'trust', which is the last word you'd associate with the Conservative Party.

    Might be a good negotiation tactic though, when having to deal with Vladimir Putin:

    1. I assume that the "golden pole" is for an oversize union flag
    2. Where is the portrait of the Queen?

    Default A week in politics

    Boris Palmer, the Green Party Bürgermeister of the city of Tübingen (Just south of Stuttgart) has an aggressive new policy for deterring car use in the town; it is so controversial, he’s even made the Guardian:

    (Tübingen is a beautiful old city, full of lovely, compact roads, so I can see where he’s coming from to be honest).
