Maybe Trump is a fool after all.

The US strike on a Syrian airfield with 59 cruise missiles is an act of unparalleled stupidity. The strike was in retaliation for a Sarin Gas  attack on Syrian civilians allegedly by Assad’s military. Naturally there is ‘incontrovertible’ proof  that the Syrian army is responsible.

Personally I doubt that either Assad or the Russians are stupid enough to use poison gas and as Sarin isn’t difficult to manufacture there is a better than even chance that a rebel  faction had something to do with it in order to elicit exactly this kind of response from the dumb Yanks.

Naturally the UK is tagging along behind the US wagging its tail  like some pathetic lap dog.

The day Britain lost its soul: How decimalisation signalled the demise of a proudly independent nation

By Dominic Sandbrook 31st January 2011

Although we all have money worries, especially at a time of such economic ­austerity, few of us ever spare a thought for the coins that jangle in our pockets. We take them for granted; usually we ­barely even bother to look at them.

Abingdon

To Abingdon this afternoon for Mrs J to buy some material at Masons one of the  apparently decreasing number of  haberdashers and shops selling material. Anyway whilst Mrs J did her shopping I had a coffee in the Square where I took this picture .

In a quiet way Abingdon is an attractive little town like Wallingford,Thame and a few other places around here. I think the reason is that they have never been wildly prosperous and didn’t suffer a precipitous post industrial decline.
