After a big political day time for PB NightHawks

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020

What with the LAB party defamation case moves and PMQs its been another big political day. One thing’s for sure the response by Corbyn to the party’s settlement of the libel action doesn’t mean the antisemitism row is going away.

Join tonight’s late night political conversation

Even if you have never posted on PB why not change that tonight and get involved. There is a lot going on and a lot to talk about.

Time for the PB Nighthawks Cafe – the place for late night political conversation

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

For me the big US development has been the growing opposition from senior figures in the military to Trump’s approach to dealing with the demos following the police murder on an unarmed black man in Minnesota.

Quite where this goes I don’t know but what an environment for WH2020

Welcome to tonight’s PB NightHawks

The big betting move in the last few hours has been on Amy Klobuchar who is to be vetted by the Biden campaign as a possible VP. I’m not sure how significant this is because there have been reports of other potential VP choices also being examined.

Certainly Klobuchar has a lot going to her.

Tonight in the PB Nighthawks cafe as things edge back ever so slowly to normality with real cafes now able to sell coffee

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

For me the big new of the day is that a local riverside cafe has opened for takeaway sales of coffee and I’m looking forward to joining the socially distanced queue in the morning. You can’t sit down, of course, but there are plenty of park benches nearby. This is one step back to normality.

Meanwhile there’s a good New York Times podcast which focuses on Britain’s individual approach to dealing with the crisis called “Boris Johnson’s change of heart”. It is interesting to hear an overseas view of the Boris/Dom strategy.

Time for the PB Nighthawks Cafe where the political conversation can continue

Wednesday, May 13th, 2020

As ever at the moment politics are dominated by the continuing crisis and, of course, as its a Wednesday night time to reflect on the day’s PMQs. What is clear that Boris is facing a much more formidable opposition leader than Corbyn and he’s yet to get his measure. The PM’s position is not helped by the UK coronavirus comparisons with other nations.

Have a good night.
