    In mafia terms the Royal Family is going to the mattresses.
    My money is that Prince Andrew is first to be whacked, followed by Meghan Markel
    What a gift for the producers of the Crown as the royals are busy writing the scripts for future series themselves.

    Virgil Caine reacted to The Grey Man in Epstein   
    A man known for getting his own way and acting impulsively, historically.
    His PR man jumps ship a few weeks ago, presumably not just against the interview but asking for what gain to HRH and if it backfires on his watch as valued PR man hes for the high jump. Ruined for ever more and blamed for letting it happen..
    The distraction line holds. What better way to whisper horrors of what may come in to such a loose cannon? Just press the on button and away he goes. Played like a fiddle.
    Now look over there...

    I have a suspicion that it is the MBA 'cargo cult'.
    There's all the talk of management idols and techniques and stuff; the approach appears to be to copy all of the 'visible' characteristics of successful management -- words, champions, structures, book-learnt leaders, etc -- but to not actually get the bit about successful management where there's got to actually be management that understands the business, actually works and is ultimately successful.  Over and over again they fail, not understanding why their state of the art structures don't seem to work, and usually end up blaming the floor-staff for being crap or not following directions -- when all along they're doing the equivalent of making a perfect facsimile of a short wave radio out of bamboo and string, and not understanding why the new gods don't bring them their ambrosia.

    Top tip to royals caught up in this sort of event is to to take religious orders and enter a Trappist monastery not appear on Saturday night TV.

    Virgil Caine reacted to swiss_democracy_for_all in Most Underrated / Overrated cuisine   
    Those that say Froggie food is overrated have probably just not experienced it at it’s best, they’ve gone downhill as a cuisine country at an astonishing rate since the 70s. Now it’s not that easy to get a good French meal in France if you’re a tourist and don’t know where to look, and on top of that  they ruin the cuisines of other cultures because they can’t and won’t cope with anything spicy. 
    When I first tasted the home cooking of traditional French home-maker housewives who didn’t have another job and shopped more or less daily for fresh produce in local markets, then crafted this into superb meals, I was dumbstruck by how well they ate compared to the pretty awful British food of the same era in the 70s. That French world has gone, and those ladies didn’t teach their skills to their daughters. At the same time Brit food has improved rapidly, it started with the TV chefs like Keith Floyd. 
    Other cuisines - German and Dutch food is shite IMO except for the herring things. No-one deserves to eat the croquette balls of meat-flavored slime that the Dutch are fond of eating in their work canteens. 
    Thai (in Thailand) is one of the best. Sicilian too. Argentinian but only for the best meat.

    That has been the basis of English Fire Regulations for centuries and a lesson that has had to be constantly relearned.

    The rule is to build so fires could not spread quickly.  Escape procedures cannot compensate for that simple principle being ignored.

    Bolton is in the North so the fire may as well be in Ulan Bator as far as the metropolitan BBC is concerned.
    Anyway it appears that the choice of new build property in the U.K. now is either something covered in firelighters that burns more intensely than a booster on a Saturn 5 rocket or a dwelling on a flood plain that disappears underwater if there is more than a weeks rain.

    Timeline on Bolton News includes a video shows burning debris from the exterior falling onto the floors and the street below which was exactly what happened at Grenfell.
