Purely coincidently, I just read today that here in Myanmar so far this year 6 people have died with covid and 62 people have died from Lightning strikes, though I don't know how many of them also had covid.

It's quite obvious that Dpedin feels that Starmer is allowing Boris to build himself up so that he can use it against him. That's what the expression "give him enough rope" is referring to and I'm a little surprised that you don't understand this; are you another who left school at 14?
That's not a good look rinkals
Fair enough.

It's difficult to tell if Bimbo is genuinely ignorant or feigning it in order to willfully misunderstand a point.
Difficut to tell if you really are the pompously arrogant master of bored patronising conceit, or just feigning it.
No, I'm pompously arrogant, I'm afraid. Particularly when in your presence, as a matter of fact.

Sorry. :(

Genuine question - is anyone actually listnening to Boris anymore about family, BBQ's and social distancing, etc

There was a noticeable change of mood when the Cummings thing happened. I could see it in my village almost immediately after that whole debacle.

I know we are supposed to be taking advice from Sturgeon, but the Durham trip really undermined anything she wanted to do

They did an extensive poll on this, 7% of the population said they’d been affected by the Cummings issue when asked directly.

they obviously didn't poll up here - the field by the river in our village was rammed with family and friends BBQing - and the amount of cars blocking up the little road leading to the field was an indication that they weren't local to the area.

Oh I’m sure you recognised something “different “ I’d be amazed if that wasn’t true. Why didn’t the police close down the illegal activity in your village if it was illegal?

I'd like to be sticking two fingers up to Boris for his appalling behaviour in not firing Cummings but it's tricky to do that without risking someone I care about. I do know a number of local families started their own lifting of lockdown to varying extents in the week Cummings was more in the headlines as a disgrace, but they were likely getting very bored by then and might have been about to start ignoring the rules anyway.

There are actual studies now showing the position taken by Boris in not firing Cummings is so full of shit it's why we ran out of toilet paper, true story.

This was an urgent question which The Speaker granted. Jenrick was in the House today so could have answered it himself but chose to send a junior minister who didn't even attend the dinner in question. Makes him look like the sh it he appers to be.
Secretary's of state make statements and take questions on a regular basis but not like PMQ's on a fixed weekly basis
Jenrick by his own admission is sailing very close the wind in the legality of his decision on the planning application and is due in front of the Communities Select Committee next week, he can't bottle out of that one

Is this urgent questions? If so they're directed at a specific member of government, but it's up to government who responds.

Increasingly we've seen more junior ministers responding to UQs, maybe 70-80% of the time these days it's not the senior minister, though I strongly recall under Bercow the number of UQs granted went up more than a little bit. If he was actually there today and wouldn't have had to leave his office to get down there it's more than a bit pathetic, there is something in having to leave your schedule to rush at the beck and call of the speaker being counter productive

There isn't a weekly allotted time for the questioning of individual ministers as there is with PMQs, but every week government department have to front up on a rota basis to answer questions in parliament. Most questions have to be submitted in advance, but in sessions which allow a topical question minsters can be called on to answer to anything they have a responsibility for after working through the advance questions

Who decides whether a question is urgent, and why?
If an urgent or important matter arises which an MP believes requires an immediate answer from a government minister, they may apply to ask an urgent question.

MPs may request that the Speaker considers their application for an Urgent Question each day. Applications for urgent questions must be submitted to the Speaker to receive an oral answer on the same day. The deadlines for application to the Speaker's Office are as follows:

Monday - 11.30am
Tuesday and Wednesday - 10am
Thursday - 8.15am
Friday - 8.30am
If the Speaker is satisfied that the question is urgent and of public importance it is then granted. Urgent Questions are asked straight after Question Time on Monday to Thursday, or at 11am on a sitting Friday and may be repeated in the House of Lords.

The relevant Government Minister has to come to the Chamber to explain what the Government is doing on the issue raised. The Minister will then usually take questions on the subject from MPs. The Department is also asked to provide a backgroud briefing on the issue for the Speaker and declare any relevant interests.

Is this okay in your book? Simple yes/no will do.
No. Not at all, obviously.

Another entitled c unt
Do senior ministers usually get 'called' into parliament, or does he usually have an allotted time for questions, like the PM?
Is this urgent questions? If so they're directed at a specific member of government, but it's up to government who responds.

Increasingly we've seen more junior ministers responding to UQs, maybe 70-80% of the time these days it's not the senior minister, though I strongly recall under Bercow the number of UQs granted went up more than a little bit. If he was actually there today and wouldn't have had to leave his office to get down there it's more than a bit pathetic, there is something in having to leave your schedule to rush at the beck and call of the speaker being counter productive

There isn't a weekly allotted time for the questioning of individual ministers as there is with PMQs, but every week government department have to front up on a rota basis to answer questions in parliament. Most questions have to be submitted in advance, but in sessions which allow a topical question minsters can be called on to answer to anything they have a responsibility for after working through the advance questions
:thumbup: cheers

Who decides whether a question is urgent, and why?
If an urgent or important matter arises which an MP believes requires an immediate answer from a government minister, they may apply to ask an urgent question.

MPs may request that the Speaker considers their application for an Urgent Question each day. Applications for urgent questions must be submitted to the Speaker to receive an oral answer on the same day. The deadlines for application to the Speaker's Office are as follows:

Monday - 11.30am
Tuesday and Wednesday - 10am
Thursday - 8.15am
Friday - 8.30am
If the Speaker is satisfied that the question is urgent and of public importance it is then granted. Urgent Questions are asked straight after Question Time on Monday to Thursday, or at 11am on a sitting Friday and may be repeated in the House of Lords.

The relevant Government Minister has to come to the Chamber to explain what the Government is doing on the issue raised. The Minister will then usually take questions on the subject from MPs. The Department is also asked to provide a backgroud briefing on the issue for the Speaker and declare any relevant interests.

How is that Colonel Blimp? This is a fucking nonsense, people need to set their own risk parameters and let everyone else just get on with it. By all accounts London hasn’t really done lockdown at all.
