Looks like in an effort to out fox the Europeans on their Galileo Satellite effort we some how bought the wrong sort of satellite capabilities in OneWeb.

Even funnier, the UK has already spent more than a billion quid on Galileo!

Yes. Boris truly has form.

The whole situation seems to parallel the issue of water cannons and bridges when Boris was London Mayor!

How about a slogan on a bus - Ditch Boris and save £350m a week for our NHS.

Boris was only given a poke at being Foriegn Secretary due to his positioning over BREXIT. Had that gone a few % the other way he would have been in the wilderness for ever more.

He was poor in that role so as PM he is proving to be a disaster. I fear his worst ****-ups are yet to come.

And the white elephant Routemaster bus replacement, hugely expensive, gloomy inside, inadequate aircon and you can't open the windows unlike on the old buses, big reduction in capacity relative to a standard double decker, and even though they are hybrids they actually produce more air pollution than a standard diesel bus because they are constantly switching the diesel engine on and off instead of more efficiently running it at a constant speed.
