0


Was there anything more infuriating this week than the sight of eco-warrior Zoe Jones in tears when she learned that a man had not reached his dying father’s bedside in time to tell him to review because of the roadblock of his protest group?

Extinction Rebellion stuck to a tub on one of Bristol’s busiest roads, so its 14-mile drive, typically a 30-minute ride, took three hours.

As she listened to the man’s heartbreaking phone call explaining what happened to a local radio show, tears rolled down Zoe’s face. Yet she was unrepentant.

Was there anything more infuriating this week than the sight of eco-warrior Zoe Jones in tears when she learned that a man had not reached his dying father’s bedside in time to tell him to review because of the roadblock of his protest group?

That’s right, she apologized. “We are incredibly sorry,” she said, “We didn’t want our protest to affect your life in this way.

But then, in the same breath, she insisted that they were “doing the right thing”. His emotion resembled crocodile tears to me. Either that or she’s terribly naive.

Regardless of the intolerable disruption of workers’ lives, police and politicians have been warning for months that Extinction Rebellion protests could result in deaths as paramedics, medics, firefighters and police cars stranded in traffic. .

Ms Jones says she has to protest because of the “climate emergency” – but what about people who are suffering from real emergencies?

The movement is in fact deeply subversive. They believe this gives them not only moral superiority but also the freedom to do what they want.

Former Met Police Counter Terrorism Command chief Richard Walton calls out the extremist group and says he is trying to break democracy and the state.

The founder of Extinction Rebellion, Roger Hallam, himself said, chilling: “We are going to force governments to act. And if they don’t, we will overthrow them and create a suitable democracy. . . and yes, some may die in the process.

Who does he think he is? What gives it the right to decide what type of democracy is suitable for its purpose?

Of course, the younger generation is welcome to protest global warming and force politicians to act. But their real concerns are being hijacked by a group of manipulative extremists and anarchists.

That’s why your tears don’t wash away, I’m afraid Zoe. Not while your group is prepared to prevent a son from seeing his dying father, and to inflict misery and even death on him, for his cause.

Thank goodness we don’t have a Donald Trump in power in this country, or he might have told our Barbados-born English cricketer star Jofra Archer to “go home” too. And we would have lost the World Cup.

Jane challenges FaceApp aging

Lots of fun as celebrities post photos of themselves via the new FaceApp that ages them decades – just like 68-year-old Jane Seymour steps out to mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.

What a lesson in natural beauty is the ex-Bond Girl – she says she owes it to a strict regimen of washing the face in very cold water, exfoliating and using a good moisturizer.

Thank goodness she stuck to it – or maybe she ended up looking like this image created by FaceApp, based on a photo of a young Jane!

Thursday nights with a bottle of Blue Nun will never be the same after the last episode of Andrew Neil’s This Week, the best satirical TV show that has graced our screens for decades.

I’ll even miss my old nemesis Michael Portillo – we fell out when I was working for William Hague and I’ve always regretted it.

Sometimes the Beeb is really crazy.

Coleen has a big bottle

Enjoying a girls’ weekend in Ibiza away from her four sons and stray husband Wayne, Coleen Rooney was in such a cast that she tried to open a bottle of wine with her teeth.

There is something adorable about Col curves, gorgeous in a pink bikini showing off a little mom’s tummy – a tribute to her four pregnancies.

She truly is a glorious role model for new moms – and fully deserves her break from caring for five minors.

The icing on Mr H’s cake

Baker Paul Hollywood, 53, and the 19-year-old marriage of his wife Alexandra, 55, were dissolved by the court in less than a minute due to her adultery.

The couple appear to have reached a private financial settlement for the £ 8million they accumulated while they were together.

Considering that most women are half that, let’s hope Paul’s bartender girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam, 24, is worth millions. No soggy bottoms out there – only his.

The Apollo 11 50th anniversary cover was thrilling and I discovered something new: Toy Story hero Buzz Lightyear was inspired by the second man on the moon, uh, Buzz Aldrin. It only took me 24 years to fix this problem.

It is absurd that Meg and Harry’s garden plans at Frogmore Cottage have been declared a matter of national security. It’s still not clear how much we’ll have to shell out, but they’ve budgeted £ 20,000 for the plants. They can surely afford their own rhododendrons.

Ahead of her episode of Who Do You Think You Are ?, Kate Winslet said she would have been “upset and disgusted” if she had learned that there was an inherited wealth in her family. It was Kate who was educated privately with a fortune of £ 35million.

Westminster Wars

Some compare Boris Johnson’s campaign girlfriend Carrie Symonds to Meghan Markle – a breath of fresh air modernizing to blow through the stuffy old Tory Party. Great too.

And at almost half her age, Carrie, 31, will likely want a baby Borises soon. What joy.

Although he must divorce his second wife Marina before officially welcoming the third Mrs. BoJo.

And settle it with his children. Downing Street is about to get more colorful than Coronation Street.

Labor Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer is in a rush to become a leader if Corbyn does the honorable thing and falls on his pruning shears.

How can we take seriously a man who looks slightly more cheerful than Lurch, the Addams family valet and named after a drink popular in the 80s? Kir Royales in every way for the Tories if he succeeds.

Without a hint of self-awareness or irony, Ms May delivered her final speech as Prime Minister, warning Boris Johnson that his populism would leave the Tories in the “jumper” of history.

She called for “compromise” – this from a prime minister whose leadership was defined by his total absence of it.

Heartwarming news that Billy Connolly returns to our TV screens with a three-part travel series that left the stand-up due to his Parkinson’s disease.

A new start for Billy and a message of hope to all who have the disease – that even at 76, there is still life in The Big Yin.

Spare Lily a thought

Currently playing an angel in the TV series Good Omens, Michael Sheen, 50, announces that his partner Anna Lundberg, 25, is expecting “a little angel of their own.”

His months-old girlfriend is already proudly displaying her obvious baby bump. Still, think about her daughter Lily, who at 20 is only five years younger than her new lover.

She has already had to endure the forays of her mother Kate Beckinsale with men half her age. Talk about selfish parents.
