I am now at an age where I feel that everything I do or say is a rehearsal for my eventual transformation into one of the Golden Girls. Judging from certain reactions I am morphing into Sophia.

Watch a debate with a guy who looks like he goes to bed in his clothes talk about populism or a three hour lunch with wine? The 'Begrimed Barbour' ( AKA Steve)  is showing up in my Facebook page regarding something called the Munk debates.

The problem with getting away from it all or fleeing the rat race is you will have to go somewhere that is thirty years behind. Where to go when the world ends? I chose the Village and its rustic charm, and on the whole there is a certain allure to not being part of the daily grind but forgot I would have to suffer the occasional run-in with someone who thinks they have just invented private enterprise. You know, 'rugby shirt wearing capitalist, just discovered Thatcher, seeks similar prepared to work under duress.' 
I received an odd thing on my Facebook page today. It was an invitation to watch the Frum versus Bannon debate. I'm reminded of PG Wodehouse from the Girl In Blue,

“It was one of the dullest speeches I ever heard. The Agee woman told us for three quarters of an hour how she came to write her beastly book, when a simple apology was all that was required.”

Aaron Banks. He is shitting himself isn't he? Did you see him on the Andrew Marr show? His mouth was as dry as one of Farage's crusty old Union Jack socks.Somehow he doesn't strike me as the generous type. More a second hand dealer in ideas.  He'll be fine though. He must be loaded if he can afford to donate millions. He can piss off whenever he likes, to Bermuda, Belize, leaving you to it. It's not any old fool who can pull a stunt like this. 
A while ago I wrote 'who needs an education system when you've got the Daily Mail?' ( also, democracy when you've got Murdoch, and a cuisine when you've got brown sauce). Well the DM has had a funny turn. 360 degrees. Yes, hysterical. It recently informed its readers how to get to the People's Vote march and now tells them Arron Banks has undermined democracy. The DM usually serves as the only cardiovascular exercise its readers get so this shift in thinking will do them the world of good!

Today I have watched British and Dutch political talk shows and in conclusion I have to say the Dutch have an intellect that is sadly missing on British TV nowadays. Where did it go? Why do British people have to listen to bullshit from the likes of Arron Banks, Katie Hopkins, Farage, Choudray, Robinson, O'Neill and all the others who seem to have carved a niche for themselves just by being shit stirrers, wind up/bullshit merchants and gobshites?
