The news on the Prime Minister is better. He has been released from intensive care back to a general ward, and it is to be hoped that the improvement will continue and he will be able to return to his duties, though that should definitely not be too soon. I had at one time a very mixed opinion of Boris Johnson, acknowledging his intelligence, ability and definite measure of charisma, as well as general good nature, but at the same time feeling he was all too often immature and even schoolboyish in some of his remarks and behaviour.

But since deciding to become serious about challenging to become Conservative leader and hence premier, then winning national election in his own right, he has raised his game a long way. He is the country's elected and chosen leader and though there are other undoubted talents in the Government there is no one who has the confidence of the nation in the way he does. So his recovery and return to full-time duties is a very important matter nationally as well as for himself, family and friends.

Not everyone agrees, in the last few days a Labour mayor in Derbyshire was suspended by the party then sacked from her job for saying on social media that he deserved to get ill. And today a senior official in the ridiculously militant RMT crossed the line even for them and was suspended for doing worse yet. But there is no doubt that the country as a whole is very much behind the Prime Minister they elected, I think even most of those who didn't actually elect him.

That's at least a glimmer of some good news there about the improvement in health of the UK Prime Minister. Even if I did not share his views universally I fully respect the job to wit he has done. Those who wish ill of him in the current time clearly show no nous nor tact, nor situational awareness, this coming from the side that preaches the most about tolerance are in this time found out to be without tolerance or good manners.

In further good news, the Prime Minister has now been released from hospital. However, he will be returning neither to his duties nor to Downing Street for the time being, but will instead recuperate at Chequers, a Buckinghamshire mansion used by incumbent premiers as a country residence.

Her Majesty the Queen reaches the grand age of 94 years old today. Normally there would be gun salutes and other ceremonies to mark the occasion, but for obvious reasons they have all been cancelled. I wish Her Majesty a very happy birthday in any case, as I'm sure we all do, and hope we can look forward to future birthdays being properly marked by public ceremony.
