Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
A certain man once lost a diamond cuff-link in the wide blue sea, and twenty years later, on the exact day, a Friday apparently, he was eating a large fish - but there was no diamond inside. That’s what I like about coincidence.

All Our Yesterdays: Day 181
20.01.20. The Independent:
“UK government plan to ditch EU regulations means British firms could be locked out of Europe..."
Needless to say, Johnson’s government refused to listen and promised us that trade would continue as normal.
But wait, what about the firms who have halted trade between the UK and the EU because of increased border controls and tariffs? What about the ‘catastrophic’ effect of the increased bureaucracy on the fishing industry? What about the empty food shelves in Northern Ireland?
All easily explained.
The delay experienced at by hauliers at EU ports is due to "bungling officials".
The Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, is 'not convinced' the collapse of UK fishing businesses is due to Brexit.
And only yesterday this was the excuse for food shortages in Northern Ireland.
“Chaos spreads to meat industry as government blames empty shelves on Covid.”
I am surprised it has taken 20 days before Johnson’s government decided they could blame the deficiencies of his Brexit Deal on Covid. I wonder what other Brexit disasters they will pin on Covid?
