But then again, when is it ever a great day for politics? As you will have guessed already, I am about to launch into a massive moan and groan over what has occurred politically in the past 24 hours, and equally you will not be surprised to learn that I haven't actually witnessed or read much about either events. So far, so typical elderly, pyjama-clad blogger slumped before his spittle-specked computer screen!
First, there was 'The Donald' in full-on, foghorn style at his press 'conference'. I place commas round the word 'conference' because that word implies a two-way, verbal intercourse which, from the very few minutes I watched, was anything but! Instead, he bellowed and honked away to his heart's content in a totally pointless vanity exercise. What was the point? What did he achieve? Zilch is the only fair answer, except possibly, the inner contentment to be derived from what my old Ma used to call, "Opening your mouth and letting your belly rumble!" Oh well, at least none of us are surprised given the nature of his election campaign. Alas, we must simply stick to the only strategy when contemplating politicians, ignore what they say but watch like a hawk what they do. And in this particular case, we must cling to our old mantra - ABH, er, that's Anyone But Hillary!
Closer to home, well, my home anyway, today we witnessed the return of Lazarus, aka: Tony Blair. How this born-again, lying liar has the effrontery to prate at the British people he deceived so slickly I do not know! But there he was on my TV screen this morning for as long as it took me to find the 'do-flicker-thingie' and zap him into nothingness. I have just discovered that 'The Speccie' has published the full text of his speech over The Coffee House. Read it if you dare (I didn't!) but make sure to shower carefully afterwards. Needless to say he was announcing yet another campaign to overcome the will of the majority of the British people to leave the EU as expressed fairly and honestly in a referendum. The only good thing to be derived from his effort is that given the deep distaste most people have for him, it is actually a positive imperative for people not only to redouble our efforts to leave but also, it may well convince even more 'Remoaners' to think again.
