Notes On Contemporary Politics

1. I have it on what seems to be the best authority that the Russians had nothing to do with hacking the US election but- what the hell- people will believe what they want to believe.

2. Funny how  "fake news" is always what the other side puts out.

3. The word "fascist" should be struck from the political lectionary. Fascism was a political movement of the inter-war years.  Calling  a modern politician a fascist is just another way of living in the past and avoiding engagement with what's really going on.

5. Boris Johnson said some truthful things about Saudi Arabia and was dumped on by his boss- which tells you all you need to know about the bred-in-the-bone wickedness of government.
