Purveyor of Bollocks to the Crowned Heads of Europe

I've just waved goodbye to the very large man in the very small car as he set off for Bexhill via the New Forest. He looks vulnerable in a mini made by the British, not the Germans.
Five minutes later, he sent a text saying he was coming straight back - forgot some vital dental equipment which he needs on Monday, back in Bremerhaven - so I waved goodbye for second time. I always miss him for a few days after he has stayed, but I did not expect to see him again so soon. We vowed to meet up in the pub in half an hour, but I don't think that will happen.
Every possible weapon is now being used against Trump, and a couple of women who say they were groped by him about 40 years ago have been pulled out of retirement. I wonder why they have left it so long into the campaign - maybe because they did not think he would get so far either.
Normally, America sneezes and we catch a cold, but in this case we began opening historical sexual offence cases against celebrities long before the U.S. We did so to sell newspapers (or make money from them) but - with the exception of Bill Cosby - the U.S. is doing it for a purpose. A very important purpose. They are trying to save the world from destruction, and you can't get much more important than that.
It is a shame that we cannot afford to stop Russia from killing children in Syria without causing the end of the world as well.
