Almost £12.5m. I'm an individual who fails to get involved in all the hysteria over apparent good deeds (most nowadays are turned into Look At Me and what I did) but what the Major has achieved is so cool. Incredible achievement.

Now almost £13.8 million raised by CAPTAIN Tom (Major Tom, spinning in his tin can, is someone quite different, mmm a-hard-days-night-george-10).

Raising £12m+ got him promoted. Seemed only fair.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8One of the absolute best niche rock stories. Sums up the personalities of both Frank and Bowie so well.

Less than 48 hours after £5 million... less than a week after he appeared on BBC Breakfast on Good Friday looking to raise £1000 for our NHS heroes...

Don't think the only thing he'll be getting from the Queen this year will be a 100th birthday card... A knighthood in the Birthday Honours list I think will be no surprise...

And though he did his 100th lap/length this morning, with a socially distanced honour guard from his former regiment, he's said he's keeping going so long as people are giving... and, feck, are they are giving!!!!

It's a mural that was on Oxford Street in 2012, @CakeMaestor, by Mr Brainwash, a collaborator of Banksy's. Not sure permission is needed to download a copy, and AG couldn't give it. Doubt she asked permission. ahdn_john_08_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10

I'm sure it will get answers of reducing graffiti and art is subjective but why is a boring blank wall a better option than a colourful piece of art? 

Seems a bizarre move.

It was originally part of Mr. Brainwash's art show at a former Post Office sorting office, on the outside wall of the building, so it was probably just a case of the owners cleaning the space should the next show they put in the space wanted to use the outside wall for something similar.

Captain/Mayor Tom is up to almost £25m raised

Little hasn't been said yet on how incredible it is.

You'd be surprised. Over here in my country the current talk around is how Captain Tom managed to raise so much money for the frontliner effort. Some lads over at the Malaysian subreddit were joking about the possibility of a Malaysian version of the fundraiser.

Side note: The new coronavirus cases have dropped significantly, from 128 cases three days ago to around 50 today. Granted, tomorrow the government's planning to do mass checking on foreigners, but it seems that infections among locals are dropping, with several districts becoming 'green zones'. Good luck to the rest of the world, and hopefully we don't lose another legend like John Prine.

Okay, little bit of politics, after just watching a show from around the world supporting the messages coming from the World Health Organisation, a part of the United Nations, I was disgusted by President Trump's suspending US funding to the organisation afterwards - the same President Trump who a few weeks ago was praising China for how open they were being cuts funding in the middle of a crisis of WHO for somehow being dishonest.

I watched his latest bunch of lies press conference earlier, and it doesn't get any better. He spews attack lines on the Democrats, accusing them of being political, while bringing up a long-proposed strengthening of gun laws in Virginia as something to do with COVID-19!!!

Just how political can you get? Attacking (and defunding in the midst of a crisis) a UN organisation (long been against the UN); attacking Virginia for passing gun laws that have nothing to do with this; attacking Democrat states but all the Republican states are getting it right; praising those Republicans who protest against his lockdown rules in Democrat states.

Political games at their most obscene at a time of international crisis.

He's called it the Huwan Virus in the past, and the China Virus; I've no doubt, if he thought he could get away with it, he'd be calling it the Democrat Virus. This is man who spent (wasted) weeks calling it fake news and a hoax.

Sometimes obvious truths need stating as a charlatan and trickster tries to deceive with his smoke and mirrors.
