100,000 Newborn Babies Set To Have Their DNA Fully Decoded

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the FT.

This sub-heading gives a few more details.

Genomics England programme aims to extend the number of treatable conditions detected to about 200.

I am coeliac and I do wish, I had been diagnosed at birth.

But more importantly, my youngest son, who would have been fifty this year, might still be here.

He was probably coeliac and worked as a sound engineer in the music business.

He lived the rock-and-roll lifestyle on a diet of ciggies, Subways and high strength cannabis.

He probably had an immune system, with all the strength of a plastic colander.

Consequently, he died at 37 of pancreatic cancer.

Macron Refused To Take Russian Covid Test

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

These are the first four paragraphs.

French President Emmanuel Macron refused a Russian Covid test ahead of his meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin has confirmed.

The test required a health protocol that was unacceptable and did not fit with the French leader’s schedule, a French source told the BBC.

It follows reports that Mr Macron refused the PCR test over fears the Russians would get hold of his DNA.

The leaders subsequently held a socially-distanced meeting on Monday.

The article is accompanied by an hilarious picture of the two leaders at each end of a long marble table, which is crying out for a caption like Who Isn’t Using Lifebuoy?

Seriously though, if the Russians wanted Macron’s DNA, there are ways.

  • Send his water glass or coffee cup to a lab.
  • Make sure Macron uses a special toilet that collects his pee, poo and toilet paper.
  • It might even be possible to collect it off the marble table.

I suspect that the Russians have collected Macron’s fingerprints from the table for some nefarious purposes.
