I smell a RAT! ...

 

Just been scanning a few pics of McCartney as I was wondering why he was showing so little of his face during his clot-shot.

 

I'm not convinced that that is really him in the photo ...

Look at these 2 images, in particular the length of his sideburns ...

The clot-shot image doesn't look to be the same man to me. What do you think?

 

 

 

The neck in the clot-shot belongs to a much younger man

'don't worry, we will bail you all out with universal basic income payments from the state. All you have to do is have a digital ID card, from the state, that has your up-to-date vaccine status on it and you can carry on paying your rent and buying your groceries'

It's pretty much the same here: can't evict non-payers even if they've been getting their rent money from UC and keeping it. But here ban on evictions is basically continuing (and it used to take 5-6 months to evict a non-payer or cannabis farmer before this) and it can take a year or more to get rid of someone.

Nah, gotta be tall people - after all, when you sit down in a pub or cafe it flies over your head - only need a mask when you stand up - gotta be riskier for tall people. You know it makes sense

He certainly is.

To think I once had time for the bastard.

I blush thinking about it.

 

About 15 or so years ago, I was listening to his radio show when it used to be on Friday and Saturday nights.  I'd enjoy sitting up listening to it.  What jolted me out of it was that he used to ridicule people who rang in and complained about immigration.  I didn't agree with what they were saying, but I disliked the way he was treating them and it started me off thinking.  It's a petty/trivial thing, but it's one of the things that broke down my previous naivety (as it then was).  I suppose I should thank him.

50 years ago, this would have been good fodder for a Monty Python skit, so absurd is the premise. But here we are, in the 21st century, surrounded by technological miracles that we could only dream about in the 1960s. And people believe that tall/short people are in more danger of catching a virus. Makes me want to weep.
