The New World Order
Well, the cataclysmic events across the pond have just reinforced my view that , on the whole, 2016 has been a terrible year...one of the worst ever. Granted,it may pale in comparison to war breaking out in Europe, the atomic bomb being dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or the day Kennedy was assassinated, however, it is,undeniably the most saddening and scary set of events in recent years.
Emboldened by a bombastic buffoon, (Sorry Boris !), the alternative right (yes, that very politically correct term for a bunch of single celled, protoplasmic,knuckle dragging morons),there is an unsettling rise in intolerance in the States as well as Europe. When you get congratulatory messages and offers of support from the likes of LePen in France, and the ex leader of a radical religious group (otherwise known as the KKK), I'm guessing that if you have a shred of decency about you, you might consider the rhetoric used over the last twelve months.
