(a typically inept bureaucrat) today published an open letter suggesting a possible bureaucratic treaty sometime in the distant future for dealing with any future pandemics – aka for the moment it is bureaucratic “war”
Any positive action by signatories on dealing cohesively to ensure equitable distribution of medications right now? Absolute mularky.
Ensuring there is no price gouging etc is easily done. Around $200billion to vaccinate entire planet vs trillions in tax payer funds being diverted and way too many lives lost.
Politics not something ever think about – but gosh there are some inept ones around at the moment.

While in farmers markets in the hunter valley today, a bus arrived and the welcoming, warm and genuine huge smiles from everyone made our day completely. A great reminder that inept bureaucrats (including those that destroy decades of trade in under two years) are mostly irrelevant – people matter the most.
Heartland of great food.

A culture genuinely deeply admired by many others.
alphabet are mucking around with software again (and worse) in lots of places.

Irrelevant but am very much over fudged creepy corp gossip. Each happily in committed relationships. And it is not about individuals.
No one speaks on my behalf.
