I’ve awoken from a terrible dream…

While the United Kingdom seems to be undergoing some kind of mass delusion/extreme crisis of faith (breaking news: she’s still dead! Rumours are that she will remain so!! Hold on for our next breaking news!!!)…

…Where were we? A mass delusion in which topical mots du jour include ‘$12 million’ (or was it £12 million?), ‘civil sexual-assault case’, ‘paedophile Prince’, ‘no sweat’, ‘Pizza Express Guildford’, ‘sent to Siberia’, ‘borderline senility?’, ‘abdication?’ and so on, whose origin date of 15 February is a day short of 7 months old (sample Daily Mirror headline 16 February: ‘Royal Sex Scandal: Andrew Does £12m Deal To Halt Sex Claim’)…

…People may be relieved to know that Al-Jazeera is still running a news service on freeview on channel 235 (well, it is on my TV). Latest report: political legitimacy in Iraq! It’s almost as if I’ve awoken from a terrible dream…

(And we’re still speculating so hard about whether or not there’ll be another series of Succession? 😉 )

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