It’s quite amazing.
There are so many top stories in the news at the moment that are dominating the airwaves, the Interwebs and half a rainforest of print. There is Trump and his impending inaugeration. There is Brexit. And here on home turf there is some shennanigans up in Norn Iron that is apparently leading to an election.
The Doom Merchants are having a field day with all of this. The sky is about to fall on our heads. Nuclear war is to occur within the next four minutes [according to that shower of idiots over in Avaaz]. We are going to see customs posts again on the border, complete with machine gun towers and barbed wire. There is going to be war in Europe, America and Norn Iron.
So what’s so amazing?
I have nothing to say about any of it. I find it all so tedious and boring. I am tired of the headlines and the bodylines and the footnotes. I really couldn’t give a flying fuck about any of it. There is a possible reason for this, as I have just noticed from typing the above – it all concerns politics. If someone [possibly Trump?] nuked the White House, the EU headquarters, the British Parliament and Stormont would it make much difference to the man in the street? It’s an interesting hypothesis? It would certainly solve a lot of problems?
In the meantime, I have much more important things to attend to. I have pressing matters that need my attention so I don’t have time for all this political crap.
For a start, I have to nip down to the village as a matter of extreme urgency.
My library books are due back today.
