In a Time of Colossal..

My alter ego has been having a twitter conversation with a friend over the fallout from that press briefing and the one that followed yesterday. Eventually conversation turned to a discussion of leadership and elections. Wanting to avoid the usual suspects – Lloyd George and Churchill – I proffered Gladstone and Disraeli; Attlee and Salisbury, […]

Just When You Think The Apocalypse Can’t Get Any Stranger…

Dawn comes early. I sit here at 4am listening to the cuckoo heralding the start of a brand new day and I wonder what it will bring. Before I go any further, this is not a post about the rights and wrongs surrounding Dominic Cummings. It is a post reflecting on the reaction to a […]
