Just love those posters carried by the marchers - Tangerine WankMaggot- I nearly fell out of my high-chair when I saw that.
Re: scones. Ages ago I was in a caff somewhere in Cornwall, and a tweedy old boy nearby ordered a cream tea. He picked up one of the scones and pressed it. Stale, obviously. So he called the waitress over and said in a plummy voice, "Is this the Scone of Stone?" No, she didn't get it. But he got the pronunciation of 'scone' correct. 'Scon' an dweadful middle-clarse affectation.
A 'tweedy' old boy, who was cognisant of the stone of scone? Sounds like a real class warrior.
If he had a mate called John he wound no doubt have pronounced his name 'Joan'.
If, as seems increasingly likely, Putin is controlling Trump, are we actually looking at the early stages of a coup detat?
To me, the most worrying moment in Helsinki was when the reporter asked Putin if he had dirt on Donald and Putin chuckled. He chuckled. Putin then made some vague deflection, that was no real answer, but in his Mona Lisa smirk you could read his mind: "I'm former K.G.B. and Trump is Trump. The hotels in Russia are bugged. Of course I have dirt on him."
