Vive the difference


The recent cringe-worthy visit of the First Man to France demonstrated the qualities of Gallic behaviour. Larger than life, self-satisfied and fundamentally hypocritical. Excusez-moi? Did you say those adjectives describe their No. One Visitor? Oh, yes, I hadn’t noticed. By all accounts the French populace were less than impressed.

Meanwhile, back in the real world (London) his demands for a ‘better reception’ when he deigns to grace us with his ineffable presence, were met with a straightforward, ‘Well, you know the British press’. So he should not hold his presidential breathe.

Says it all really.

    The Gronk in Chief struggles to grasp reality. It’s the curse having had a coterie of sycophants for his entire life. His followers are almost as delusional as Corbynites. I say “almost” only because Trump at least expects people to work for their living.

    Paradoxically French presidents are frequently challenged in the altitude department – needing to big up on the diplomatic stage.

    …While Don the One is getting antsy about the opinion polls which of course are wrong.

    Janus: The only thing saving Don the One is that the opposition are apparently committed to self-destruction. Had the Republicans sent anyone else they’d be miles ahead of where they stand now. Instead, they are stuck with a man who is apparently committed to saving the opposition from itself by turning himself into a buoy.

    CT, your use of the strangely pronounced ‘buoy’ is new to me. I can guess what it means but pls help.

    Janus: He’s floating somewhere miles from reality. The opposition hold onto him and in doing so don’t sink entirely.

    Meantime, here I am in sunny, breezy Sussex, to the sound of children celebrating the end of school until September – blissfully unaware of Le Continent not so far away. Bonnes vacances, mes amis et autres!

    Janus: Please enjoy your holiday! The Continent will sort itself out, it always does — even if that involves lots of bollocks and the occasional decapitation.
