    Even the people usually wheeled out to defend the policy can’t. Except for Cleverley, y’now the one that called Stockton on Tees a s******e.

    I would assume that Mrs Sunak wants her children settled in their new schools in America by the Autumn term. A winter election would have been far too disruptive. I have to hand it to him, though; he certainly wrong footed the people in his party that were plotting to oust him.

    Hunt is equally as loathsome, it’s just that he looks like a human being. I’ll never forget the first time I noticed Loathsome: it was at the Brexit debate where she kept saying ‘asamother’ and I kept asking myself ‘ why does she keep saying that’. Ruth Davidson wiped the floor with both she and Johnson and yet they were the ones that got rapturous applause. What a bunch. They give us Brexit and then they b****r off….

    According to TRIP’s it’s Sunak that is given a list of things that he has to say. I would imagine that Starmers time as a barrister (?) means that he has had to think on his feet.

    It’s almost as if he wants to lose so he can resign and go to America….

    Given that the current Chancellor, when health secretary, totally ignored the findings of Operation Cygnus, we do know that we currently have a government that will put the economy before people’s lives ( and the state of the NHS).

    I would imagine that there would be far fewer people voting because even more people would have died. Imo

    But a euthanised horse can’t be used for anything can it?

    For some reason, when pondering on the decision to retire Corach I think back to another highly intelligent horse, Golden Miller, who took a dislike to Aintree and, after winning one National never ran well there again, supposedly because of being put off at a jump one year by the flash from a photographers camera.

    I hadn’t realised just how many races Corach Rambler had actually won. And Nationals and Gold Cups take a lot out of a horse. I guess that, at Punchestown Derek realised that the horse had lost the confidence that had made him so good.

    Quelle Farce: that was my initial reaction. They’ve lost a few good horses recently. And, although I’m not implying that it is the main reason, they’ve gained a lot of new horses and owners due Corach Ramblers success and if anything tragic happened to him it wouldn’t be good for the yard. All I could think about during the National after I’d heard that he’d fallen riderless at the second fence was whether or not he was ok so I’m relieved that he’s retired in one piece.

    I’m still worrying about the horse I saw that was put into a horse ambulance at Kelso last week.

    Thankfully I’d just left the room but I heard my partner shout out ‘oh no’. No disrespect to Hispanic but at first I thought it was Summerghand and my heart sank. And then a horse comes down in a later race. What is going on? My son asked me to take my horse mad granddaughter racing and I refused even though t would have been a flat meeting. And yet, years ago I used to take my daughter and her friends to Uttoxeter. Maybe we’re just more knowledgeable about these fatalities now.

    Well done. It was a real grower, that song. I’ll listen to France again and try to like it….I’m glad the UK got no points in the public vote. I’m no prude but I found the performance totally distasteful.

    I hated the French song: thought it was dire. Didn’t like Portugal either. Glad that the UK are doing so badly.

    I don’t know what to think or feel any more. I can’t defend it with my non racing friends.
