By George and all the Saints, did you get that crash bang wallop last night, Gaffer?!

I would have slept through it but for Fluffbun grabbing hold of my nether regions and panting and yelping, something that doesn't happen very often these days and I thought my luck had changed but no, it instead was the Mother and Father of thunderstorms.

Was it a Shakespearean portend of Boris's arrival and all that's in store for dear old Blighty?

“Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! Rage! Blow!
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
Till you have drenched our teeples, drowned the cocks!
You sulphurour and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Strike flat the thick rotundity o' the world!
Crack nature's molds, all germens spill at once
That make ingrateful man!” - King Lear

“Now I will believe that there are unicorns...” - The Tempest

SoD

SoD, I was out there in the middle of the night on our communal lawn shaking my fists at the heavens and projecting at full volume Lear's lines to the heavens.

Alas, I don't think the heavens were too impressed and the neighbours definitely not!

Most of our overpaid mannequins in the main stream media have developed the narrative BoJo is what Trump has called "Britain Trump". It's probably because misery loves company and it's banal enough not to separate whatever viewers they still have from the advertisements. Johnson is an intelligent man who enjoys acting like a clown and Trump is a clown who actually believes he's an intelligent man. Where they're most alike is being unpredictable. Good luck, y'all.

Bob, your clown seems to think that former presidents were clowns for doing trade deals that were not in the interest of the USA. Those countries are now renegotiating those former deals.
