    In an article in today’s Oz (sorry I can’t find a link to it – paywalled anyway), the Ukrainian ambassador is asking for more money. Is critical of Aussies enjoying this holiday time while Ukrainians are dying. Talks about what will happen to the western world if Ukraine loses the war.

    And now this same ambassador is allowed to dictate the rules of a sports event? How is it that politicians and officials are accepting that?

    kaysee, I understand it is Cockney rhyming slang. Like “china plate” for “mate”.

    Thanks, Eyrie. And Shy Ted.

    I can’t remember seeing this phrase used, even in British novels (of the past or present) or websites. There are other words used as euphemisms to replace the word “died”.

    I’ve picked this particular term because of its meaning. How does it fit in today, anywhere? East-End Cockney land or elsewhere? How would someone who has lost a family member or friend feel when their loved one is said to be “brown bread”? In the story I linked to, the widow was upset to find that term used for her husband.

    Its usage may not bother others. Just my misgivings…..

    I posted the tweet in the Covid Response thread. Here is the article related to it.

    BOMBSHELL – Pandemic of the vaccinated

    UPDATE: 11/1-2023: Turns out that the people in the covid cult got very triggered by this article and the Australian data that shows how useless the mRNA shots are. Some people (including doctors!) are claiming that I ignored the fact that 97.4% of the population is vaccinated, therefore they claim it would only be natural that the majority of the hospitalized were vaccinated.

    Dr. Vernon Coleman:

    Twelve things doctors know but won’t tell you

    Antidepressants don’t usually work. And yet millions of people take them.

    Any patient in hospital who has a bed sore was incompetently nursed.

    Most practising doctors stop learning when they leave medical school. So if your doctor qualified ten years ago the chances are high that his knowledge is ten years out of date. Just about everything doctors learn after qualifying is fed to them by drug companies.

    Many medical journals are bent. They allow drug companies to suppress inconvenient results and they receive huge amounts of money in drug company advertising.

    Benzodiazepine tranquillisers are far more addictive and difficult to kick than heroin or cocaine. (It is now exactly 50 years since I first revealed the truth about tranquilliser addiction and other problems. Many doctors still prescribe these wretched pills for too long.)

    The medical establishment has absolutely no interest in the welfare of patients but is interested in promoting drug company products and obtaining bigger salaries and fees for doctors.

    Doctors prescribe the same doses of drugs for 25 stone men as they do for seven stone women. That’s just stupid.

    Older patients should be given smaller doses of most drugs. But doctors don’t bother to do this. Actually, most doctors probably don’t even know they should do this.

    It is deadly dangerous to try to diagnose patients without seeing them. But these days lazy doctors do this all the time – constantly making massive, lethal errors.

    One in six patients in hospital is there because they have been made ill by doctors.

    Four out of ten patients who are given a prescription drug develop side effects – sometimes lethal ones.

    There is now no such thing as medical confidentiality. Doctors share information they are given with vast numbers of people.

    According to the 75-year-old German prelate, the Pope has messed up everything from his green policy and outreach to Islam to his bid to take advice from rank-and-file Catholics. But his biggest frustration is what he describes as his decade-long shift away from talking about God.

    Why an absence of A-listers at Davos
    is not just deep trouble for the World Economic Forum, but for globalisation too

    There are plenty of A-list delegates coming to the forum this year, from German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to US climate envoy John Kerry, not to mention the business mainstays like JP Morgan chief executive Jamie Dimon and, of course, Bill Gates.

    But the guestlist this time around looks considerably less heavyweight than usual.

    There is no US president, no UK prime minister and even Emmanuel Macron is giving the meeting the cold shoulder – little wonder given these nations, and so many others, are battling a cost of living crisis back home.

    “Brown Bread” is a jocular & irreverent way of saying someone has passed on. You wouldn’t use it for formal occasions or for people close to you. I feel sure it predates the 1960’s but because of its origins as a part of a ‘cryptolect’ (a secretive language), there’d be few written records of its use or frequency.

    Prostitutes flock to Davos to meet demand

    The annual Davos summit is attended by prime ministers and presidents, high-ranking officials, academics, and top media and business moguls, including those belonging to the world’s richest and most controversial organizations, such as BlackRock, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Google.

    The managing director of an escort service from the village of Aargau, about a two-hour drive from Davos, told Bild on Tuesday that the demand for call girls is high at every annual WEF summit in Davos, and this year is no exception. She shared to the Swiss newspaper 20 Minutes that her escort “service,” which is legal in Switzerland, has received 11 reservations and 25 inquiries, and expects many more this week.

    In the October 2022 version of the FAA Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners, the FAA quietly widened the EKG parameters beyond the normal range (from a PR max of .2 to unlimited). And they didn’t widen the range by a little. They widened it by a lot. It was done after the vaccine rollout…..

    The Steering Committee selections will have to be approved by a vote from the entire House Republican conference, which “typically approves the Steering Committee’s recommendations,” according to The Hill.

    Some of you may be aware that there are community radio stations. There is one where volunteers read articles and stories from some of the daily newspapers as well as some magazines, from here and around the world.

    This is the one I listen to – Radio 2RPH – while I am busy with some tasks and chores. I have the radio on and it lets me multi-task. I do stuff that I have to and also listen to the daily Australian newspaper: front page headline stories and some other items inside the paper. Also the Editorials.

    Monday–Friday: 11.30 am – 12.40 pm AEST
    Saturday: 12.15 – 1.30 pm

    I don’t have the time for other papers and magazines, but this gives me a roundup of the main stories in the news. If some article sounds like BS/fake, I check it later when I am able to. That is why I am able to mention here some news items, even though I don’t have the paper or online access.

    There is so much happening in the country and world and it gets hard to keep up or read everything. I don’t watch the idiot box or rely on MSM for the real news. But the radio is good because it is possible to keep doing various tasks – especially manual ones – and get information at the same time.

    Maybe, some of you want to check this and can then share here what you learn. I think this may be available on radio, only in NSW. There may be similar stations in other states. But of course it is also available online.

    As the “rebel Alliance” said at the end, they. were running out of things to ask for. The new appointees to the House Judiciary Committee include Gaetz, Biggs, Roy, Bishop, Spartz & Massie from the 20 rebels.

    While Chip Roy was the front man for the dissidents, he gave credit to the brains trust that formulated their strategy, including Russ Vought, President Trump’s White House Office of Management & Budget director and current leader of the ultra-conservative Centre for Renewing America who put forward a playbook in November.

    Vought was one of the first to publicly identify the election returns as an opportunity for his side. A smaller Republican majority made McCarthy more, not less, beholden to demands of those on his right flank. A determined voting bloc could extract concessions in exchange for their votes or scuttle his bid for speaker altogether. Less than 24 hours after the midterms, Vought tweeted that the House Freedom Caucus, a loose coalition of hardline conservatives, “was made for this moment.”

    Republicans have 222 seats in the House. McCarthy could only lose four and still become speaker. If a handful held out, Vought wrote as midterm results were still being tabulated, they could force the Republican leader’s hand and “insist on a paradigm shift.”

    A run-and-gun playbook was published online two days later. “House conservatives will not need a majority to prevail. They merely need to block & veto until they get an acceptable candidate,” he wrote in a lengthy Twitter thread, arguing that McCarthy amounted to “a peace-time leader” unfit for the current moment when the right was “in a cold civil war” and what was needed was to seize conflict “by the throat.”

    “The fundamentals present a cartel-busting vote, and all you need is a few members to go public,” Vought concluded. He tagged Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Bob Good of Virginia, and Chip Roy of Texas as members who would be willing go for the jugular. He was right.

    A senior congressional staffer involved in the struggle called Vought’s group “the earliest and most public advocate of a determined negotiating position against McCarthy” and credited them for making “an early investment that paid off in a transformative set of rules.”

    Wowser health nannies gone wild:

    It should always be Dry January, according to new guidelines on alcohol consumption released in Canada, concluding no amount of alcohol is safe and having any more than two drinks a week is risky. 

    The report by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) marks a big shift from its previous guidelines in 2011, which recommended no more than 15 drinks for men and 10 drinks for women per week to reduce long-term health risks. 

    They’re also dramatically different to current Australian guidelines, which say healthy men and women should drink no more than 10 standard drinks a week. 

    The CCSA has also called for health warning labels that include cancer risks to be placed on alcohol containers, and there have been similar calls for the same to happen in Australia. 

    The scientific basis is … non-existent when confounding factors are included. It’s like the nonsense they peddle that if a pregnant woman has a glass of wine with dinner, she is practically dooming her child to foetal alcohol syndrome. In which case, the entire population of (non Muslim) France would have FAS.

    The concept of moderation is alien to these fanatics.
