Now searching for a way to send Amazon a complaint. Not easy on its website. Their "chat" bot is useless.

Probably Contact Us on https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html but that's as far as I get as everything behind requires a log in.

Okay Professor.
You've earned the title as you know more of the logistics industry than I who spent 45 years in the industry.
More than happy to kowtow to the better man.

BTW
Are you aware of a device that fits in one;s hand called a mobile phone?
Are you also aware that ALL security doors have a "trade" button? (well, all the ones I delivered to had them)

Yes, but it's too boring. Alternative form - "Who will be last one standing?"

A PM that looses so many ministers in one go really should get out of the door in a controlled manner before someone chucks them out without opening it first.

Bet Fred still posting long odds on him leaving Downing Street this year. (Admittedly this was posted prior to PMQs today.)

Could be worse. The whole cabinet could step down, stay on demissionary for the duration of a year and continue with all the people who stepped down in between over other things, continuing on different posts. That's our government.

A lot of people would pay good money to see him thrown out of the door without opening it first!

Edit: A group of ministers including the chief whip are about to meet with the PM telling him to resign.

Personally I'd go for something a lot further up a building than a door......

The BBC News Channel is keeping a running score of resignations on their 'breaking news' strapline. 33 as I type. 36.

Defenestration.
A few years ago one of my fellow mods over at CPDN boards expressed concern at someone's listed occupation being "defenestration."

It turns out he was replacing windows on computers with Linux.

Or of course he might mean a (failed?) metal band from the early naughties:
Defenestration were a UK nu metal band from 1999 to 2004, based in the Northamptonshire town of Kettering.
