They might want to kick those numbers down the road another year. Hong Kong had 42 Covid cases yesterday, the UK had 47,525. I don't see any large volume of HKers rushing to the UK until they get that under control in 2022 - 2023.

Mike Nichols is one of my favourite directors. Virginia Woolf was his first movie, and it walked away with 5 Oscars. Then he followed it up with The Graduate and Catch-22. Incredible output at the start of a career.

That's 68 years of Giuliani at $20,000 a day, 365 days a year. Lawyers are expensive but $500M goes a very long way on legal fees. At least long enough to keep appeals running until Trump dies before he makes it to the inside of a jail cell.
