3.59pm “‘Eehhh….Atencion!…Que esta pasando?…No. no, por Dios…no…no…el ad esta un fake risiblo’,” begins Mac Millings. “Best MBMer strop ever. Even I knew it was a fake, and I’m the grade of idiot who almost emailed in with a pun about how you didn’t spot it because, last night, you snored your way past Adsasham Station. Almost.”
4.55pm It finishes Arsenal 0-0 Sunderland. That’s a desperate result for Arsenal – their third 0-0 in a row, for which they are booed off – but a great one for Sunderland, who are surely far too good to get dragged into a relegation scrap.
Last week the US released new unemployment figures which suggest that the pace of recovery from the coronavirus recession is slowing. And over the weekend Donald Trump said he was looking to curb the US’s economic relationship with China, an announcement that could herald more trade disputes ahead.
4.29pm “The omens were never exactly good from the start,” says Spencer Vignes. “Middlesbrough had fired seven blanks in their last eight league games. As for Wigan? Well they hadn’t scored from open play in five matches. The result? Still no goals at the Riverside with over an hour played. But, hey, at least the weather is still mild.”
What should you do? You can steal food from supermarkets but the rotting corpses on the floor of Sainsbury’s will be fetid fonts of infection. And if you try to sit out the plague in your home, you could burn or drown. After a lightning strike, fires will begin and they will not stop. And if you live in London, the Thames barrier will fail without electricity and the low-lying areas of the city will flood.
Local media reported on Tuesday that Suga was poised to confirm rumours that he intended to join the race to succeed Abe as president of the ruling Liberal Democratic party (LDP) – a position that would automatically make him prime minister.
“This has been a very difficult decision – which has caused us great pain – because we understand perfectly the importance [of the events] for Chile and for the world,” Chile’s centre-right president said.
4.44pm So Stoke, who were six points behind Portsmouth ten minutes ago, are now only three goals behind them. They also, if they win, go above Tottenham who – and you’ll like this – would go fourth from bottom.
Miguel Crispi, a sociologist and founder of the Chilean political party Democratic Revolution, said: “The cancellation of #COP25 is very bad news. It was a great opportunity to debate the climate crisis. This means the government is assuming that they can’t guarantee public order from now until December – and that is also worrying.”
“Typically, bubbles are unwound when the Fed takes away the punch bowl. Obviously, this is very unlikely to happen anytime soon,” Wolfe Research strategist Chris Senyek wrote on Tuesday. “However, this bubble can still be unwound by sustained economic disappointments.”
But those concessions appear not to have been enough. Daily street marches continue to call for Piñera’s resignation. Schools and offices are functioning sporadically. Lines at supermarkets have eased but little remains of the routine that just two weeks ago led Piñera to declare Chile an “oasis” in an increasingly volatile region.
Kishida, the LDP’s policy chief, is said to be Abe’s chosen successor, but has not polled well among voters. The finance minister and deputy prime minister, Taro Aso, has reportedly ruled himself out, while the foreign minister, loba negra descargar gratis Toshimitsu Motegi, and defence minister, Taro Kono, have yet to decide whether to run.
Ishiba defeated Abe in the first round of an LDP presidential election in 2012 thanks to strong grassroots support, but lost in the second round when only MPs could vote. He lost heavily to Abe in a 2018 party leadership contest.
I am an urban girl. I have no skills except whingeing and bingeing. I can barely open a packet of Hobnobs without an explosive device. But, unlike you, doomed and dying reader, I have decided to prepare for The End, and I am prepared to share the life-saving knowledge I will accrue. This is your cut-out-and-keep guide to the apocalypse. Put it in a drawer. One day you may need it.
Apologies, incidentally, to anybody who was on the 2239 train from Victoria to Faversham last night and endured me snoring my way past my stop and onto Faversham, where I found out all the trains had done one and I needed to get a £40 taxi. Another triumphant Friday night for the Bobmeister!
4.31pm “It’s funny how Wilson thought the pause in that obviously-a-fugazi commentary was what made it great,” begins Mac Millings. “A bit like the pause Giresse made before his assist in your recent Joy of Six. Hate to break it to you, Bobbie, but that one’s bogus, too, put together just to fool you, on the film set next to the one they used for the moon landing. Your whole life is a fraud.” Thank God for that. Can I start again now?
Chile protesters: ‘We are subjugated by the rich. It’s time for that to end’ Read moreSebastián Piñera made the announcement on Wednesday morning, telling reporters Chile would no longer be able to host November’s Apec trade summit and the COP25 UN climate conference the following month.
