One Minute News Nov 7th 2022

You never need to look too hard for news that makes you want to call Donald Trumps make up artist and say ‘STOP IT’

We had our old friend Elon Musk finally deciding he did want Twitter after all. Once he’d signed on the bottom line he decided he would quietly work with the management and staff to work a fair plan to turn the $3.5 million losses per day into a healthy profit. Or, maybe he didn’t.

Nope, People manager of the year, Elon, swaggered into Twitter headquarters trying to do his way of comedy carrying a………….kitchen sink.

He then decided 3 weeks before thanksgiving to sack loads of people by simply denying them access to their work email accounts. Wow Elon, great work.

He then decided famous people would have to pay eight dollars a month for the privilege of having their ‘blue tick’ to which writer Stephen King allegedly replied ‘he should be paying me…..’ 🤣

He’s now announced all parody accounts will have to state they are parody accounts or they will be banned. why doesn’t Elon give parody accounts with large following a silver tick. Oh no, because then they’d have to charge them eight dollars a month. He’s missing the point….. part of Twitter’s attraction is a lot of the humour, wit and stories are provided by ordinary people……for free. Yes…..Elon….even the popular parody accounts are provided free of charge with thousands being entertained by funny people spending time creating entertainment….for free. I’d think twice before throwing any more kitchen sinks about or you’ll be on your own in the Twitterverse…….

The other big event this week is COP27. The UK is apparently the chair of this at the moment and, our new King, was allegedly keen to go. Our new Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, wasn’t. He wanted to stay home and work out how he could build a growing wealthy economy using some Gorilla tape and a smashed kitchen sink. In the end the King decided to have his own ‘COP 27 the Royal version’ inviting 200 dignitaries to his palace, while Rishi was cajoled into going. 🙄🙄🙄

To show you how seriously the UK government are taking climate change, Suella Braverman, the new Home Secretary, who’d like nothing better than seeing a picture of a plane taking off to Rwanda full of immigrants, travelled to the immigration centre by bicycle, nope, sorry, I meant an electric Uber……oops got it wrong again. Nope, Braverman travelled there in a military Chinook helicopter which costs £3500 an hour to fly.

….and these people are in charge…… what hope for us all 🤣🤣🤣

Apparently 15,000 or more people will arrive in Egypt for Cop 27. To hear most of them are travelling there by e-bike is heartening for the world. I cynically thought they’d be flying there. Well done the climate changers………🙄

To finish off I’m going off piste and recommending a book I bought. Phil Rosenthal presents Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix. We’re on series 6 now and it always brings a smile to my face. Cooking, travel and some funny people. Phil’s brought a book out. It’s great….. there….Elon….I might have helped sell someone else’s book for free using my little blog. You should look into it…..🤭🤭🤭
