the interminable horror show that is the american Presidential election is at long-last coming to an end – and the nightmare may be about to begin
for though political pundits and the media analysts are predicting a Clinton win – despite the narrowing poll gap between the two candidates – I am not so sure
arseholes are often cute enough to know their views are ‘socially unacceptable’ and mask their real views from pollsters when asked, so Trump’s support may be greater than the polls would have us believe
I hope not, but I fear the USA is about to put this man – https://goo.gl/photos/HSujqBiMZch6bJx7A – a man with the attention span of a toddler, prone to temper tantrums at the least slight, and the temperament of a spoilt child, in charge of the codes that could launch a nuclear war
I wish I wasn’t an atheist so I could pray for divine intervention to ensure Trump doesn’t triumph but all I can do is cross my fingers!

So, to recap. Trump will go on trial in November accused of racketeering, and again in December accused of child rape. He is a sexual predator, hasn’t released his tax returns, and has used his foundation’s money to pay his legal fees. He has abused the family of a war hero and… oh, but let’s talk about some emails Hillary didn’t send from someone else’s computer, that weren’t a crime anyway, because that’s how to choose a president. Come on, America. Focus. (Salman Rushdie)

one of the benefits of being retired is having time on my hands to write ‘proper’ blog posts rather than the quick one or two lines I dash off before rushing to work
i have a post in my draft folder, for instance, I have been working on for the last couple of days about the tory toff who is standing for election as the new Mayor of London and his playing the islamophobic card (he is a jew, his main opponent is a muslim) and accusing his muslim rival’s party of being anti semitic, in a cynical ploy to capture the votes of the sizeable jewish community in London
but, fuck it, the man’s an arsehole – forget my carefully crafted post, judge for yourself . . .

the UK votes on Thursday to elect a new government
this is an opportunity to shape the future of the UK – to vote for the party whose policies you favour over the alternatives on offer
of course, if you live in England, I would prefer you vote for the Labour party – and if in Scotland, the SNP 😆
but regardless of your political allegiance, if you have a vote – then bloody use it, ‘cos folk died to get you the right to cast a vote !
