Well, it looks a bit of common sense has finally broken out in this country. Let's all be thankful for small mercies. I'm referring to the large march that was planned for Dublin city centre this afternoon in support of Black Lives Matter. Under pressure from politicians and the cops and, one would hope, many of their own supporters, it was decided that with the not-so-small matter of lockdown restrictions still in place, it might be better to do your protesting from home.
There hasn't been much to laugh about for the last few months, but the news that Boris Johnson's widely loathed chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, had been busted for breaking lockdown rules not once, not twice, but allegedly three times certainly brought a grim grin to many people's faces.
