Beyond satire: has Boris Johnson found another way to delay release of the ‘Russia Report’?

Chris Grayling: how can this become chair of an intelligence committee? He’s practically drooling in the photograph.

We are being asked to believe that the long-awaited report on Russian influence in UK politics could soon be released after Boris Johnson announced his nominations for the Parliamentary committee responsible for it.

But how can Parliament approve those nominations when he has nominated legendary dunderhead Chris Grayling to chair the committee?

Grayling is quite possibly the stupidest human being ever to infest the Palace of Westminster. His blunders are legendary and installing him as chair of a committee with the word “intelligence” in its title would be a contradiction in terms.

Even if this imbecile is cleared to chair the committee by Parliament, there is no guarantee that he won’t conform to his character and either lose the document that’s causing Boris Johnson so much concern – or destroy it.

Needless to say, Twitter has greeted the situation with both horror and hilarity:

Still, it is possible to see light at the end of the tunnel…

Do you believe Downing Street’s story that the Russia report may soon be published?

Parliament’s committee responsible for publishing the report on Russian interference in UK politics may be reconvened “imminently” – according to Downing Street sources.

Do you believe that?

Or do you think that, even if it happens, it’s only because Boris Johnson has found another way to delay the report – or hide what it says?

According to the BBC, the government is denying that Johnson has stalled the process:

A source close to the process has told me they are hopeful the committee will be confirmed by Downing Street “imminently”.

That would remove the most significant obstacle to the Russia report being published and means it could happen soon.

Number 10, meanwhile, has denied deliberately stalling the process.

The PM’s spokesman said the government wanted to get the committee up and running as soon as circumstances allowed.

But the spokesman said the last few months has seen an unprecedented situation in government and Parliament.

So the Covid crisis has made Johnson so busy he hasn’t had time to restore this vital organisation that could release damning information?

What’s he been busy doing? Changing nappies?

Apparently so. But while This Writer approves of equality in the parenting process, as prime minister, Johnson has a responsibility to the nation.

He seems to have forgotten that. But did you anything different from him?

The coronavirus is NOT A GAME: kids who play ‘Russian roulette’ by licking things could die

It’s a common enough situation in playgrounds across the world.

One kid, who fancies him- or herself as an Alpha, challenges others to do something really stupid to prove themselves in some silly way – usually involving outsmarting the nearest responsible adult.

They might make a show of doing it themselves (although it’s more likely they’ll pretend, because they aren’t stupid enough to do something they’re telling other youngsters to do).

Children often come to harm because of these silly challenges – and almost always get into trouble with the authorities.

The coronavirus has brought us a new wrinkle on this old scam – a version of Russian roulette in which kids challenge each other to lick surfaces that may or may not be infected.

How stupid would you have to be, to risk infection and possible death like that?

How desperate for acceptance into somebody else’s gang?

The craze seems to have its origin with Missouri idiot Cody Pfister, who took a video of himself licking items at his local Walmart store and posted it on the social media.

It isn’t clear whether he was saying he didn’t have the coronavirus and nor did the products, or whether he was saying he did – and was deliberately infecting the packaging on these items so other people would get it too.

As a result, local police said they had been contacted with complaints from the Netherlands, Ireland and the UK.

That’s right: people here who have seen the video have been copying it – most likely with the kind of challenge described above.

There is so much wrong with this, it’s enough to make your head spin.

Firstly, if you have children, they are supposed to be in lockdown. That means they don’t mix with other people’s kids.

So how are they being challenged to do this damned stupid thing?

Secondly, licking items on shop shelves – or elsewhere (I know of other examples but won’t be giving anybody ideas by mentioning them here) – is a filthy thing to do in its own right.

Your kids could catch any number of diseases by doing it, and end up putting a huge extra strain on the National Health Service.

Finally, coronavirus is a mass killer. Sure, children have been shown to be more resilient than some others – unless they have underlying or hidden vulnerabilities. Then they’re as likely to die as an 80-year-old with respiratory disease.

If you’re a parent and you’ve been letting your kids play with others, or haven’t been monitoring what they’ve seen on the Internet, or simply don’t know what they’ve been doing, it might be time for a serious talk.

It’s up to you, of course.

But if you don’t, you could be putting any number of other people at risk of touching infected surfaces, the NHS at risk of extra strain it doesn’t need, and your own child at risk of death.
