    Bowater Russell is NOT the Mayor of London at all, he is the mayor of the City of London, which is not a democratic body. Hes chosen from among members of the financial elite. This toff swans the world, like his predecessors, getting lots of false attention, yet is virtually unknown in London itself. Yet another example of the elite-dominated financial metropolis. I do so hope that the whole edifice collapses in the wake of Brexit.

    Did you not read the article?

    “The Lord Mayor of London remains a non-politically-affiliated function focused on financial developments, which is not to be mistaken for that of the directly-elected Mayor of London.”

    Acting “in his capacity of ambassador for the UK’s financial and professional services industry”.

    Everyone in “the City” or “the square mile” will know who he is, as will everyone he went to talk to.

    Pytangua is just 'another' piece of crap floating around in the MP waters....polluting wherever the current takes it.......highly biased, misinformed and uninformed.
    He presumes, from the depths of his ignorance, that if he hasn't heard of someone, or something, then no one has....

    Easy to see the irrational hate and jealousy oozing through his pores.....
    Sounds a bit like 'you-know-who'...

    'you-know-who' (now AKA “Full O’ Shit”, inspired choice of yours that was, so, fitting) is posting links to drubbings you gave him 5 years ago, it is very noticeable how his faculties have deteriorated in the meantime.

    I trust all is well with you and yours, although the news from Brazil does not sound good, stay safe my friend.

    The situation of the pandemic here, is going from bad to worse.....and even after 10 days of a relative lockdown (the mayor's office clumped together 10 future holidays to try to keep people at home), the numbers of cases and deaths are on the rise......the authorities are well aware that a 99% lockdown is necessary, but don't have the balls to implement it
    ...meanwhile, the clandestine parties, and social gatherings in the slums, with virtually no one using a mask, carry on....the virus is spreading quicker than they can fight it, so unless they take drastic measures - such as, to identify all the party goers / make them pay for treatment if they become infected / need medical attention - it's not going to get any better until most people are vaccinated.

    “Full O' Shit” is so thick, he still hasn't realized that when he posts the same ole s#!t over and over again, it doesn't bother me....he's learned nothing....not even that over the last year I have been criticizing Brazil's president....considered by many, a right-wing wannabe dictator, or a 'fascist' as “Full O'Shit” would say...he still idolizes 9-fingers, the corrupt ex-inmate, in the same way he i“doll”izes Long Dong.

    Here we had a strict lockdown for 3 months and vaccinated half the population meantime, now we are slowly coming out of lockdown hopefully for the last time, for now.

    Without vaccination it will simply come back when any lockdown is lifted, harsher lockdowns are required to even contain these new more highly transmissible variants.

    It doesn’t sound good for Brazil, you have had your shots, and most vaccines seem to be very effective at preventing hospitalisation. Isolate yourself as much as possible and ride out the storm, it may take a while though.

    As for the “party goers”, well Darwin wasn’t just talking about the past.

    As for “Full O’ Shit”, looking at the link he posted, to the drubbing you gave him some 5 years ago, it seem you are very much correct in your assessment, that the already stupid fool is rapidly losing the limited mental capacity he had.

    Once he argued and shouted at you for an entire thread when you we not even posting there. Repeats himself endlessly and does not seem to understand what he has said, never mind what anybody else says.

    Oh well, that is his problem.

    Stay well my friend.

    As of last night, during the previous 24 hours, over 4,000 deaths due to Covid-19 were reported.

    And Bolsonaro insists on ignoring that social distancing and vaccines are the only solutions......he carries on with his fixation on hidroxychloroquine, despite ample proof that it makes no difference ; the idiot is probably basing himself on the fact that some survivors actually took it as the only those, all I can say, is that, if they hadn't taken it, they would have survived anyway....
    His stubborness is where he meets Full O' Shit......both prefer to ignore proof, even when rubbed in their faces, and to spread fake news.

    Stay safe !
