Well, it begins next week, actually, once this boring-snoring Summer holiday season ends. Perhaps the most fascinating matter of interest between now and Christmas will be how 'St. Theresa of May' steers the ship of state. Early indications are good but, of course, 'there's many a slip 'twixt cup and lip'. The first, and therefor cautious, impression is that she is a woman who knows where she wants to go and how to get there. It may be that her chosen course might not be agreeable to everyone but if she steers with care and competence and drive then that is "A Good Thing" in itself.
Of course, she will be aided immensely by Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition who, instead of holding her to account, appear to be totally distracted by what can only be described as student politics. Having chosen one elderly dementia-sufferer to compete for the leadership, they have now chosen a childish retard to oppose him. What a choice! And, of course, once the choice is made, "There will be blood", not Tory blood but Labour blood. Still, it's not all bad, after all, red is their favourite colour!
Meanwhile, 'over there', they are about to start the final laps of the 'Presidential Grand Prix'. Trump, of course, suffers from the fact that he steers the car whilst facing backwards but is somewhat assisted by his opponent who veers from side to side depending on how much the latest 'zillionaire' deposits in the Clinton Foundation! The result will be a massive crash whichever one of them wins. 'Still 'n' all', as they say 'over there', those nice Chinese will be eager to help pick up the pieces!
And talking of crashes, those of a ghoul-like nature, can watch with delight and fascination as that man-made construct, the European (dis)Union, disintegrates under the pressure of - and given its origins I do love this phrase - 'it's own internal contradictions'. There is nothing to compete with the folly of men dazzled with 'Big Ideas'.
So, plenty to look forward to and of course you will be able to read all about it here at D&N!
