    Thai cave rescue:

    Media are reporting the first of the boys are out. At least two, possibly three have been rescued.

    The Thai authorities have 13 medical teams and helicopters on standby to transport them 50 miles to hospital on their rescue. That is one medical team and one helicopter for the 12 boys and their coach.

      Sorry, should have noted the time on the above, it was around 1315 BST (British Summer Time)

      And now reports are half the boys are out. 1417 BST

    Guardian is reporting four boys rescued, other media are reporting six. Hard to know as media have been kept away from the area.

    Wow, the PDT is a very sad individual to downtick posts about the rescue of children.

    Seriously, whoever you are you need to look at yourself and what you are telling the world by downticking posts reporting the progress of this rescue. If I thought you weren’t a coward I would ask you to explain what you have against these children being rescued, but being the coward you are I know you wouldn’t be willing to justify your position.

      Just the one wanker I suspect, Missy. Given the time of day it happens, possibly a sexsomniac.

      I happened last night after I had gone to bed so just catching up on it this morning.

      Apparently letters are being sent to the Conservatives Chairman, and it was reported they need 48 to trigger a vote of no confidence in the PM.

      This afternoon she will address the Commons, and then the 1922 Committee which will be the indicator on how this will go. It was reported over the weekend that the 1922 Committee has a legal opinion that contradicts the PM’s stately made on her proposed EU deal.

        For those who may be interested Jacob Eees Migh will be doing a half hour on breakfast radio this morning on LBC. It is a regular spot he does every two weeks taking questions from listeners.

        This morning’s phone in should be interesting as he is one of the leading Brexiteers in Parliament and a member of the 1922 Cimmittee, as well as the chair of the Brexit select committee.

        Also this morning it is reported that JRM is willling to bring down the PM over this.

        It is on LBC (LBC.co.uk) at 9am BST (8pm NZ time).

          Sorry for the typo, phone did auto correct. In future I will refer to the honourable gentleman as JRM.

    One of the latest victims of Novichok poisoning has died. This is now a murder investigation led by the Counter terrorism police.

      Russians again?…

      • Gezza

         /  July 9, 2018

        No, I think she means the UK counter terrorism police.

          is this guy one of them… Jacob Eees Migh?

             /  July 9, 2018

            I don’t think so. That looks like it might be a typographical misspellng of Jacob Rees Mogg.

            Why do you ask? Have you seen that name published in connection with being a member of the UK counter terrorism police?

    I waited to post on the Chequers statement until the PM had addressed the 1922 Committee today, (I still will wait to do a comprehensive posting), however in light of last night’s events it should be noted that there has been a lot of anger from Conservative members on social media.
