Not quite sure where to start. Politics are pointless. As much as they make me sick to my stomach, it seems as if Labour are destined to win a working majority. The Tories have seemingly lost the will to survive. Sunak might be PM in name, but it’s clear that Jeremy Berkshire is the de facto PM. The man looks utterly deranged. Germany is sleep-walking into crisis. Merkel was over-rated. Germany declined drastically under her 16-year-rule. The current government are doing even worse. I won’t even mention the Sub-Canadian Entity. It is scarcely worth a mention. I simply feel bad for the many decent people who live there.
The World Cup is on, I hear. Japan are out so I don’t care. They did well, though.
I’m rather busy with my own life. I thought that I was done with a two-year Castilian programme. I decided, at the last minute, to extend it by the equivalent of a third year. It will involve literature from Mediaeval Spain to contemporary Latin America.
After several delays, I will leave for Europe again in April. Viking-type chum encouraged me to give Denmark a go. I think I will. Worst case scenario, I end up in Luebeck which is a beautiful city which I quite like — even if it is full of Germans.

The big question is whether this crazy politics is random or planned that way. I suspect the latter.
Gaz: I see it as a combination of the two. On one hand, politics are devolving. They have been devolving for some time. On the other hand, far too many strange things are happening in a coordinated manner.
The way that I see it is that there are definitely forces acting with bad faith towards West European ethnicity and cuture, spefically the Christian element of that culture. They have caused enough disruption to allow the chaos to take on a life of its own. The West is in a death spiral from which it cannot escape without truly drastic and probably very unpleasant action being taken.
