This is what Sky News thinks is a "hilarious quiz question" about the people who run the country 🤬

"Which former PM was seen vomiting behind the Speaker’s chair after three bottles of port?"

More to the matter than meets the eye (or Falter presented it)

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2024/apr/22/initial-story-about-openly-jewish-incident-not-full-picture-says-ex-senior-met-officer

Falter claims was discriminated against because he was a Jewish man in the vicinity of a pro-Palestinian demonstration.

But a longer version of the same exchange has since emerged on Sky News, showing the officer explaining that his concern was that he had seen Falter acting in a way that led him to believe he was trying to provoke a confrontation with marchers.

"The Moomin family was hibernating in the drawing room as they were wont to do. They had been sleeping for a few months already and were going to keep it up until spring. A sweet sleep had rocked them through what felt like a single long summer afternoon. Now all at once a cold draught disturbed Moomintroll's dreams.
'Mamma, wake up,' Moomintroll said anxiously. 'Something's on. They call it Christmas.'"

@fkamiah17's #MoominMonday toots today feature a lot of Moominmamma and it reminds me that I still want to get a tattoo of this, but I'm not sure WHERE I want it.

@fkamiah17@toot.wales avatar

@grrrr_shark That's a tricky one, and I wouldn't dream of giving advice! The presence of Moominmamma a lot today is quite by chance - I've got all the books on a table by my desk and just pick one up and open it at random to choose what I'm going to post.
I've just learned about this though, so of course I had to buy it 😁

"The others were on the jetty, putting the luggage on board. The storm lantern swayed to and fro, and the silhouette of the jetty and the bath-house looked like a long spiky dragon in the evening sky. She could hear Little My laughing, and behind her the cries of the night-birds still awake in the forest.
"It's so beautiful and strange!" said Moominmamma to herself. 'I wonder if Pappa will mind if I take a little nap in the boat.'"

I'm not one of those short memory people who will laud and praise Speaker Johnson. He blocked aid to Ukraine for six months. He's no hero.

@capnthommo The University has made some terrible decisions about speakers lately. I imagine it's something to do with the senior faculty.

"Moominpappa walked down the garden to have a look at his crystal ball.
Dusk was rising from the ground, as it usually did, gathering in under the trees. Round the crystal ball was a little more light. There it stood, reflecting the whole garden, looking very beautiful on its coral pedestal. It was Moominpappa's very own magic ball of shining blue glass, the centre of the garden, of the valley, and of the whole world."

@capnthommo Perfectly nice movie right up until the last two minutes. "OK, holiday's over, say goodbye Billy". (Farmer stoves otter's head in with a shovel in the distance).
Yeah, I love all that 70s British folk horror weirdness like Susan Cooper and Alan Garner. Those stories really hold up. They gave me a love of folklore and horror that stayed with me to this day.
OMG Threads. The only thing more traumatic than Watership Down.

Daily today is a - gorse in the background, blackthorn in the foreground. Every autumn I come up here to pick sloes from the blackthorns for sloe gin. Must decant last year’s production…

I wish there was smellovision - the gorse is astonishing, a coconut overload. As though the trees had smeared themselves in suntan lotion.

@KateCelyn Oh, is that what those things are? They grow in the little wood behind my back fence and I could never quite figure them out.
New project for the autumn 🥳 🥂
