So what is it that the world appears to be ruled by pygmies? There's only one strong leader that's uniting his country ATM and that's Putin. Whether you like/dislike Thatcher/Blair/Merkel or whoever, they were world class people who believed in what they were doing.

All the current lot seem to believe in is following the next focus group.

Or in the case of our clown, he's afraid of his own shadow let alone not do what his latest wife tells him to do, plus of course his chums with ready cash and his backbenchers who are almost paralysing him. A bit like Major and the b*st*rds!

Well, I think there is a match here! And guess who pays for the salaries and, more important, for the mistakes? No news so far from our former Ministre de la Santé, she was moking at people wearing a mask saying it was useless and that we had a lot in stock just in case. She should at least apologize and give her money earnings back.

This virus in a worldwide sanitary crisis and the politics know nothing about it but they legistate! Incredible but true. Something is rotten.

Yes, mainly the various country "Leaders" don't have a clue, Putin not included as he is in a class of his own. I thought that if a country causes most of countries a problem, then that country should pay reparation for what they have caused?

Are we wandering in to politics, here? By God we are!

If your country is invaded by an enemy, it makes sense to put aside differences and stand together to fight the invader, in this case Covid. What do we do today? Bicker over tactics, and expect nothing in life to change. I doubt if any past leader could have done any better than the current lot, It is difficult to fight a domestic war at the same time as an invasion.
We are a sorry excuse for a Nation.

Watching the TV I see a young woman from Love Island has made a lot of money and thinks anyone can do it. She has been "piled on" for saying this. Personally I think she has a point since without ambition we would never improve. Where she misses the point is that success should not always be measured in terms of money. Having a family and a nice home could be seen as success. Likewise enjoying your job could be seen as success. But in this world of instant gratification, all people see is money and then become jealous of those who have become rich. It's fair to say that reality TV is as much to blame but that is really just a new revenue stream for those who want to become "stars".

Reality TV has created a new monster. On the Who wants to be a successful musician? type of shows they all appear to want to win, but only because that should make them rich & famous. Unfortunately The Apprentice seems to be attracting the same sort of contestants (not that I watch any of these types of show anymore).

I do get a lot of sponsorship requests/applications to join the team with no money, along the lines of "if you don't pay for my hobby I'll have to give up on my dream." The kid normally has no talent, no application, but has watched lots of "Karaoke Star" TV shows.

Sorry chum, this is real life. We all have to accept dreams are just that. Unfortunately the Karaoke Stars just encourage not working for your dream, expecting someone else to fund it.

That's not fair. I'm no Corbyn lover but "cometh the hour, cometh the man." Who knows what could have happened? We can't indulge in "whataboutery"
