More Chaos

I suggested in a comment a day or so back that Boris Johnson might not ask the Queen to give her assent to the legislation the Remainers rushed through Parliament on Wednesday to tie his hands. I wasn’t sure whether he could do that, but I’ve found at least one person saying (13minutes 45 seconds) that he could do exactly that.

So I now think that’s what will very likely happen.

With luck, Parliament will then be suspended/prorogued for 5 weeks, and we can forget about it all for a while.

Meanwhile, BBC reports:

Hurricane Dorian: Bahamas death toll expected to be ‘staggering’

According to the Bahamas Tribune, the official death toll has risen from 5 to 30.

According to the Sun:

“The public needs to prepare for unimaginable information about the death toll and the human suffering”…

On social media thousands are still listed as missing as British and American rescue teams hunt through the rubble for survivors.

People are also using websites such as DorianPeopleSearch.com, which currently lists the names of more than 5,500 missing people.

    O/T The madness continues… While reviewing the news today, I saw that the City of Redondo Beach (near Los Angeles) in the process of instituting extreme restrictions on smoking throughout the entire city. The local newspaper report sums it up: Redondo Beach extends smoking ban to all public places and will institute retail tobacco license permit” http://tbrnews.com/news/redondo-beach-extends-smoking-ban-to-all-public-places-and/article_f761837e-d034-11e9-a237-d33e01410539.html

    The news summary states:

    1) The Redondo Beach City Council this week unanimously approved a citywide smoking ban in public places — with certain exceptions for designated areas, residential properties and moving vehicles.
    2) The council, by a vote of 3-2, also chose to implement a local tobacco retail permit for the 44 licensed sellers of tobacco products in the city. The city also moved to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarette products.

    Another vote is needed to finalize the law. The mayor seems to think his having lung cancer justified the draconian restriction, even though there is no valid data showing second hand smoke leads to cancer—especially outdoors. But, the antismoker propaganda has replaced actual empirical evidence and prohibitionists keep on marching toward their totalitarian paradise.
