She fulfills the basic requirements for the post, she's no threat to Boris.

He's spot on.
"It’s time to ask whether Boris Johnson is up to the job"
I think we all know the answer to that. He's not quite as bad as
Theresa May
but he's no Churchill as some more deluded journos liked to portray him. He's
not even a John Major - at least the latter knew his own mind even if most
decisions he made were usually wrong.

BBC's poster child on the evening news was a lady who was 8yrs old on VE day.



Don't despair.

It's only another 11 years to the 75th anniversary of Suez.


Who is going to want to commemorate our defeat by the Americans?


Well Roland for a start; if it gives him the chance of being a poster child
on the TV.

Its pretty obvious he's rather miffed at missing out on VE Day.

That's all very interesting I'm sure. However I was merely pointing out that
whether or not the carriages were nice and empty as they were in your case,
would presumably depend on the time of day your journey was made. So that
without any such information, your otherwise helpful suggestion that others
might care to follow your example, is of very little use I'm afraid.


I went into town about 12.30 and came back around 2.30. At one point I
literally had an entire piccadilly line train to myself apart from the

driver.
It was quite bizarre.



Thanks. Although with everything closed, presumably, it would probably
be quite frustrating walking around with nowhere to go except maybe
the odd supermarket. Maybe Sainsburys on TCR or Tesco in Googe St
frinstance.


I was taking pictures of the lockdown plus having an nice walk through the
backstreets of the west end and mayfair.

Got that one, I've rebooted the computer so maybe it was a glitch.

What *would* be useful at any time, would be the ability to take
pictures of streets, buildings, etc. without the intrusive presence
of parked cars everywhere. Along with too much street furniture, about
which nothing can be done of course. Traffic (and pedestrians) can be
largely avoided by starting at 5.a.m. in summer time; although that
then presents the problem of having all the trees in full leaf.

Are you stating categorically that if given the chance of being a
poster child, you would in all circumstances refuse ?
