He eventually decided it would be worse if he cancelled so went ahead anyway.

I almost didn't start this thread, but then I read the title.

Inspired by some senior civil servant.

A sentence I never thought I'd write.

This is a BYOB thread. The sun's out. Somewhere. I imagine.

Bring on the drones.

Mine's a double.

I will miss the daily comedy of Bozo when he's gone.

(Albeit, like Trump, not so funny on closer analysis)

Yep. Not sure if any of the understudies are really up to the job.

I think Fishy Rishi has unfinished business. Maybe a cameo turn from the Trusser before he grabs the mic.

Stalking horses? Maybe a desperate class-of-2019 newbie with delusions of grandeur will serve as first sacrifice? Presumably there are shedloads of such creatures. Do any of them have names? or personalities?

Hopefully one of them will go for it, then get cold feet, then decide it would be worse if they cancelled so go ahead anyway. Future assured in the upcoming Gove-athon.

What is this, the haven FF thread? I could or should have cancelled my trip abroad on 9/3/2020 but it was long awaited, much anticipated by others and travel bought and paid for. So I went ahead.

Due back on 30/3/2020 but fliggts got cancelled and I was still there on 20/5/2020 when everywhere, but every where was locked down.

Today I received an unspecific offer of a refund.

That's the kind of thing.

Along with HS2, where, as is obvious, He eventually decided it would be worse if he cancelled so went ahead anyway.

Where "went ahead" = perhaps, maybe, possibly doing a few bits with cardboard and string, sometime in the next three decades.
