Angry_Voice: Remember when Corbyn pledged not to raise tax on anyone earning under £80k per year, but the British public rejected it out of hand? Then Sunak raised National Insurance on millions earning under £80k, while allowing the mega-rich to keep the NI loophole that lets them pay less!

John_Howieson: Gold is such an ugly metal, and a surfeit of it like that shows Trumpian conceit and lack of taste. Maybe, in the days when ordinary folks' lives were full of greys and browns, gold impressed some (not Robert Burns!), but nowadays we have neon lighting, and gold just looks tacky.

Poem of the day

Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey Poem
In A Silence
 by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey

Heart to heart!
And the stillness of night and the moonlight, like hushed breathing
Silently, stealthily moving across thy hair!

O womanly face!
Tender and strong and lucent with infinite feeling,
Shrinking with startled joy, like wind-struck water,
And yet so frank, so unashamed of love!
