If I wrote a blog every day, I could fill it with stuff about Trump and about Brexit. But I don’t, and I try to avoid these two subjects for a variety of reasons.
It is more than a year since Mr Trump was elected President of the USA. No surprise to me, actually. I said at the time that the wall (remember that?) would be his downfall, because it was never going to be built, and it is a real, physical, tangible thing that even the stupidest people in the USA can understand. Trump was going to start on the building of the beautiful wall immediately, but here we are nearly a year since he was inaugurated and, nothing.
But, it has constantly gone from bad to worse for Mr T. There have been so many things that have been truly shocking about Trump, his staff and his family, too many to list, and why go over the old ground? But he is still there, and I, for one, do not want him to go. He is just too entertaining.
Brexit, Britain leaving the EU, is just a shambles. Mrs May is incompetent at best, and her Brexit minister David Davis is a smarmy man who just lies through his teeth. Here is a most recent example.
Has any progress been made? Very little, as far as we can tell, except the UK politicians like going over to the continent, presumably because the food is so nice.
Given all this incompetence, what do we have on the news here? Prince Harry (his real name is Henry but maybe that’s too hard) is getting married to an American actress (never heard of her). Mr Trump is not to be invited to the wedding, I guess. For several days the other week, all the wars, famine, destruction and nastiness of life stopped because the happy couple were walking in a garden.
It’s the Princess Diana legacy, except she was never ever ‘Princess Diana’. She was Lady Diana Spencer, married and became Princess of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, and Countess of Chester. Then she divorced and became Diana, Princess of Wales as a courtesy title.
Not that any of it matters…
