    War on obesity:

    “CAMILLA CAVENDISH: David Cameron was fat too – but now Boris Johnson’s near death can change the shape of Britain”

    THIS is most important in the fight against the pandemic: stop eating-out-of-boredom. Set yourself a weight target. Bring your BMI-index back in the green realm, like 20-25. Walk every day at least 10,000 steps (more than 1 hour), do regular exercises. And get used to showers with one minute of cold ending.

    Good news from the right-wing scene in Germany and AfD: moderate prof. Meuthen managed to throw out extreme-nationalist Kalbitz.

    There is a good chance that the extreme-right “Fluegel” (“Wing”) will be thrown out of the party. The Wing was under investigation of the federal Verfassungsschutz agency. The Wing was in favor of Dexit and halting the Energiewende (renewable energy transition). The AfD had most support in the less political correct East of Germany. AfD will now be more attractive for West-Germans and become an electable right-wing party. In West-Germany the electorate is 4.5 times as big as in the East.

    “Brexit trade talks stall as Michel Barnier warns EU won’t ‘bargain away our values for the benefit of the British economy’ while the UK accuses Brussels of taking ‘ideological approach'”

    Brexit going nowhere. Let’s stop the madness and part with no-deal. Britain wants to be member of the globalist Anglosphere, not of white Europe. Strange choice, but we need to respect that implicit English death wish.

    In Britain, white fashion models no longer need to apply:

    “2nd agricultural exporter in the world”

    Thanks to Corona does the Netherlands have way too much food: potatoes, meat, fish, asparagus, vegetables, everything. Like 1 million ton of potatoes.

    Potential destination: biomass.
