Gong show

Cartoon politicians like Farage and Trump are the pacifiers of the working man and woman.

Mr Trump is on a victory tour, first stop in my hometown of Cincinnati. It’s only a matter of time before he starts pinning military medals on his suit jacket.

Mr Trump’s election was a global 9/11. He could very well turn the US into a Verbrecherstaat.

In psychoanalytic terms, he’s a psychical infant.

Infantile psyche + Twitter = global clown show. This is the quality of entertainment the Deplorables crave.

There’s no way back to the economic and cultural insulation of the Shire. As Marx wrote long ago, the cheap commodities of the bourgeoisie have battered down all Chinese walls. Brexit and Trump walls will fare no better.
