Some really rubbish decisions.

python - No module named pkg_resources - Stack Overflow |
None of these worked.

What I ended up doing was:

<code class="language-bash">
curl -O
python3 --user
rm ~/.local/bin/pip # so the distro pip for Python 2.7 takes precedence

PEP 518 -- Specifying Minimum Build System Requirements for Python Projects |
This PEP specifies how Python software packages should specify what build dependencies they have in order to execute their chosen build system. As part of this specification, a new configuration file is introduced for software packages to use to specify their build dependencies (with the expectation that the same configuration file will be used for future configuration details).

This PEP attempts to rectify the situation by specifying a way to list the minimal dependencies of the build system of a project in a declarative fashion in a specific file. This allows a project to list what build dependencies it has to go from e.g. source checkout to wheel, while not falling into the catch-22 trap that a has where tooling can't infer what a project needs to build itself. Implementing this PEP will allow projects to specify what build system they depend on upfront so that tools like pip can make sure that they are installed in order to run the build system to build the project.

To provide more context and motivation for this PEP, think of the (rough) steps required to produce a built artifact for a project:

1. The source checkout of the project.
2. Installation of the build system.
3. Execute the build system.

This PEP covers step #2. PEP 517 covers step #3, including how to have the build system dynamically specify more dependencies that the build system requires to perform its job. The purpose of this PEP though, is to specify the minimal set of requirements for the build system to simply begin execution.

Mentally ill people more at risk of losing benefits, study shows | Society | The Guardian
The findings are based on government data about 327,000 people with either type of health condition who switched from receiving DLA to personal independence payments (PIP) between April 2013 and October 2016.

The findings raise fresh questions over whether people who are struggling with mental ill health are at a disadvantage when they have to negotiate the benefits system.
