Yes, that's exactly what I mean, a metaphor for independence from the UK not just on paper, but in our mindset too.

I had always been holding myself back from criticising Musk on this news thinking that he had a good intention but the more he talk/tweet about this, the more I see (as many had said) he just want a publicity for his brand. why this guy, a billionaire doing this is beyond my understanding. Why he want to have a fight with the real expert in...Cave diving and mapping on the subject related to .... cave diving and mapping?!!!

This one is so ugly, if you read a twitter from him which was deleted but not before someone (of cause) call him out in which he claims an experienced cave diver British man, Vern Unsworth a "pedo", or pedophile !!!

Mr. Vern Unsworth was "the first" experienced cave diver and mapper on the site providing the Thais with his expertise and "suggested that the Thai government needed to invite expert divers from other countries to help" which they listen.

If I was a shareholder, I'd urge Musk to concentrate on Tesla actually showing profits, instead of slagging off at rescue efforts that don't need his interfering publicity stunts.

I think the Navy SEALs would have a suggestion as to where he could put his minisubmarine!

There was a 38cm gap where a person couldn't even fit through with an oxygen cylinder.

The boys were sedated and so weak they couldn't walk the bits above water, they were carried on stretchers.

I am guessing and ONLY GUESSING there was a private conversation that we are not privy to that led to this horrible tweeting. How it became the main focus is sad.

I'd say you're right.

In the meantime, Musk had to fight recently to keep his cronies on his own board.

just saw video reporting that all of the members of the " wild boars " have been released from the hospital

they appear to be in some type of press conference with the rescuers ( ? )

That is *exactly* what Vern Unsworth suggested Musk could do. Hence the ensuing vitriolic twitter storm.

History has shown that Vern was right, and Elon has just today (finally) formally apologised.

Meanwhile, Harry is back at work. I just missed crossing paths at lunchtime today. There was a (delicious) carrot cake in the tea room with "Hero Harry" written into the icing

I imagine that there is a line to buy him ( and the other rescuers ) a drink

alcoholic or non alcoholic it doesn't matter
