brain damage

As a brain damage sufferer/survivor, I’ve observed the same symptoms in Dominic Raab. The slowness of speech and the occasional sense that he has no idea what he’s actually saying. My heart bleeds for him – but it does raise the question: should he be Foreign Secretary? Esher and Walton, of which he is the MP, would of course vote in a brain-damaged man as long as he was a Tory. But still…

I wonder if they play rugby at Dr Challoner’s Grammar School, of which he is an alumnus? (Along with Roger Moore – I could see Raab fancying himself as James Bond material.) He DEFINITELY was a boxing blue at Oxford and captained the karate club there. Brain damage? That might explain how the son of a Jewish Czech, who came over in 1938, has allied himself with the pro-Brexit wing of the party. A man for whom the racist chant ‘send him back’ could have been invented. (Like Javid and Patel, as it happens.)

As Jodie Foster says in Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore: WEIRD!

I had a stroke on July 26th, 2013. I was a screenwriter. Don’t do that anymore. But have found another way to write.
