Repairing the Damage

The two Beasts from the East last month gave the tides enough muscle to wreck Filey Bay beaches and damage man-made structures. Here is Herring Hill, photographed a week ago.

Transcore men were on the case today.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe concrete jumble in the middle distance is to the left of my shadow in the photograph below. You can see how much sand has been scoured away by the variation in colour at the base of the two relict pillboxes. The ridges and furrows of pebbles and gravel are a sight to behold. It may, however, only take a couple of tides to bring all the lost sand back. The sea works in mysterious ways.

The damage done to the credibility of the United Kingdom by the present government may take a lot longer to repair. May, Johnson et al continue to double down on the Skripal farrago and the BBC’s well-spring of useful idiots trotted out to make unsubstantiated claims of Russian guilt is showing no sign of running dry. Jeremy Corbyn must be wondering why “calling for the utilization of proper channels of international law before attributing blame” (source)  makes him an instant traitor.

Maybe The Phantom Poisoner will be proven, eventually, to have Russian connections. But the British Government doesn’t have the proof yet, otherwise it would have presented it to the world already.

Thank goodness for the antidote to poisonous Tory hate speech offered by Maria Zakharova.
