The big sporting news of the day is that Simon Yates won a stage for the second time in this year’s Tour. He survived the breakaway and attacked up the climb to the Prat d’Albis. Julian Alaphilippe retains yellow but cracked and lost time. Geraint Thomas had a good day, Thibot Pinot is looking super strong, and Kruijswijk, Bernal and Buchmann are all still there. This is shaping up to be a great race, mainly because there’s no one outstanding GC contender.

What do you think proper, response, or not ?

The Iranians rub salt into Britain’s wounds by releasing a video showing the ease of capturing a British Tanker.

To Boldly Go, one small step at a time.

Echoes of our past, the seeds of our future.

There is no greater nor more deserving challenge then the Exploration of Space. NOTHING can benefit mankind  more than our pushing our boundaries and our knowledge in the exploration of Heaven.

I’d suggest “hijacked” is more appropriate –

A pro-Brexit activist has admitted to public order offences after calling MP Anna Soubry a Nazi outside Parliament.

James Goddard, 30, from Altrincham, Greater Manchester, pleaded guilty to causing alarm and distress using threatening or abusive language.

If it’s now illegal to call someone a Nazi then the Left has been denied most of its platform.

Trailblazers we are.

Let’s be clear: removing stigma around a normal bodily function should be celebrated. Proposals to end the tampon tax, distribution of free sanitary products, better education for boys as well as girls, and the introduction of menstrual leave are all positive moves towards ensuring women are not held back by their periods […]

Menstruation can, however, exacerbate incapacitating physical or mental health problems including endometriosis and depression.

There was a time when women couldn’t do important stuff, because their hormones sent them mad every month. Or that’s what sexist old throwbacks thought. That idea was shouted down and society got on board with/was hectored into thinking differently. Now The Guardian is telling us that women need time off work each month because their hormones are sending them mad.

Well done to Darren Grimes, the patriot persecuted by a corrupt Electoral Commission. His “crime” was to be a Brexiteer and to campaign, very effectively, for his country to once again be sovereign, independent and self-governing.

The Electoral Commission fined him £20,000 and spaffed half a million up the wall chasing him through the courts after he ticked the wrong box on a form. (Darren Grimes had to crowdfund his defence.) Today he won his case. The EC lost totally and completely. So well done to a fine young man. Well done to him for campaigning for his beliefs, for not backing down, and for exposing how corrupt the Remain establishment is.
