    Where do you live again? It was still summer when they arrived. And as I've pointed out many, many people live outside cities that they commute to for work. There are a slew of decent-sized cities all close by MV.

    Just more excuse making for the hyper-hypocrites.

    DeSantis — whose presidential ambitions emit a stench akin to Limburger rotting in an old sock — is gushing with own-the-libs bluster, vowing to keep shoving migrants in the faces of elite liberals everywhere. But the ones truly getting “owned” by this farce are right-wing voters and Florida taxpayers. The more information that comes out, the clearer this will become.
    - WaPo - dirty money as usual!

    That's very 'woke' of you, but - just like 'political correctness' - these things tend to be taken to extremes.

    Looking at the evidence provided by H_A, so far there is no indication of either.

    "censored and controlled", or simply reined in?

    I'd need to see the context, and I really don't care about it that much, so I'll disengage.

    What do you think?

    You must have missed the news. Under Truss all that wokeism is going to be censored and controlled.

    She also made some unfortunate gaffes that caused offence to British Jews during her leadership campaign.
    I wouldn't recommend holding your breath in anticipation.
