Is this finally Trump’s Nixon moment and the smoking gun?
Surely the Bolton book revelation is the ball that knocked his middle stump for six? I’ll be damned if he is not out with this one.
Sorry about the cricket analogies, but I’m rather partial to following the old game these days. Been listening to the South African Test. It’s just a shame they cut the Johnathan Agnew commentary from the coverage.
Because that man is sublime. The most wonderful and delightful sports presenter out there. His sonorous tones are a Cotswold landscape on a spring day. He is sprung rhythm, fresh, endearing, humble and kind. He is wise and insightful and clear minded.
I’d chuck him in the Commons any day. Imagine someone like Aggers in there? What a blessing and a relief to us all it would be.
He is the antithesis of that ghastly bloke across the pond. That irksome, slippery, floppy, smug, loathsome, ghastly bag of tricks of a human being at the centre of the circus that is American politics.
But enough of that. For as Rabbie says:
‘Then let us pray that come it may,
As come it will for a’that,
That Sense and Worth o’er the earth,
Shall bear the gree, an’ a’ ‘that’
Apart from these thoughts nothing much is afoot. The students are back and I take it the in-word at the moment is ‘literally’?
Because I can’t walk past a group of them without hearing one using it and with such emphasis. Well I suppose it’s better than ‘sweet’ or ‘grizly’ or ‘honestly’.
Anyway, ‘minerality’ is the big word in wine at the moment, by all accounts. Except no one can really explain what they mean by it. They got a bunch ( forgive me) of wine buffs together including that Oz Clarke chap, but they were at a complete loss to agree on it. Someone said it was just a metaphor.
He listen guys, I’m at pains already to get any of the subtleties of a wine masters’ description without you guys beginning to throw in metaphors too!
Elsewhere in the world our restaurant is going through a personality crisis. There are many things on the table at the moment, it’s just a pity none of them is food.
Unfortunately we are still closed.
We should resolve matters in the next week.
But don’t hold your breath.
