... Maybe she'll Come Back My Way One Day and I can Listen Next Time...

Hey! It is very good to listen and to hear the ideas of other people.

Even if different ideas cannot be agreed with, it is still very good to listen, without interrupting, so that those other ideas are understood so that they can be compared.


There are always fun and often good new things to learn!

Good article. Could fit in several threads, but best here I think.
Bombastic world leaders come and – as we have seen in the US – go. Our elected representatives argue and bicker over pandemic policies that change with alarming speed. Repeated U-turns have seen this Government run in circles.
Throughout it all, the Queen has remained a dignified, unifying beacon of hope. When she spoke to us in April and gave us the assurance that "we will meet again", her quiet conviction was balm to the nation's soul.

Geoffrey Robertson QC - also representing the parents - earlier said the FCDO "tacitly accepted the Sacoolas family's departure from the UK".
He referred to a text message sent to a US embassy official on 14 September 2019 - a day before Mrs Sacoolas and her family left for the USA.
The message read: "I think that now the decision has been taken not to waive (immunity), there's not much mileage in us asking you to keep the family here.
"It's obviously not us approving of their departure but I think you should be able to put them on the next flight out."
In written submissions, the FCDO's barrister Sir James Eadie QC said "Mrs Sacoolas automatically had diplomatic immunity as the spouse of the administrative and technical staff of the US mission".

Department of "You couldn't make it up".

12 November 2020:
UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said of Wednesday's move to remove the four lawmakers: "Beijing's imposition of new rules to disqualify elected legislators in Hong Kong constitutes a clear breach of the legally binding Sino-British Joint Declaration.

10 November 2020:
The Internal Market Bill contains measures that overrule parts of the UK's Brexit agreement with the EU.

Peers voted overwhelmingly to remove a section of the bill that would allow ministers to break international law - by 433 votes to 165.
Peers also voted to remove another clause, allowing ministers to override parts of the Brexit withdrawal agreement relating to Northern Ireland, by 407 votes to 148. Other clauses in the controversial section of the bill were removed without a vote.
A government spokesman said in a statement: "We will retable these clauses when the bill returns to the Commons.

"We've been consistently clear that the clauses represent a legal safety net to protect the integrity of the UK's internal market and the huge gains of the peace process.

Politician speak with forked tongue? Who'da thunk it.

2020 sure is highlighting many issues.

He described the system as not "fit for purpose", adding: "We need an independent process that's not relying upon a prime minister making a political judgement rather than judging based on the evidence."

All that is wrong with politics today.
"At 83 years of age, I'm not going to be dictated to in this way."
It's a conspiracy, for sure
Expect others to obey & respect their "political correct" laws while ignoring them themselves.
Ring any bells in 2020?

The only time those that go to DC worry about you is when they want your vote. It's 22½ months before any of them care again.

Both parties better vote for the new 5,593-page tax and spending bill in both houses before the end of the day, or you'll be getting $0.00 and DC will close.
