Hi Peter, one of the many things I love about living in France is that I’m now apolitical. I just don’t care anymore, I’m free. I’ve dual nationality, British and Irish (a London accent brought it’s own challenges in 1960s Dublin). I’ve spent a fair amount of time in both countries and elsewhere. For example when I lived in South Africa, after the ANC took over, a wonderful country with great people but it was obvious that corruption was the number one growth industry and I got all worked up about that. Later I lived in the Middle East running IBM’s M/E Services business and had the misfortune to travel often to Saudi, a horrible dictatorship supported by the US. I got worked up about that too. Now, retired, I just don’t care anymore what Cameron or his friends do (though Boris Johnson always gives me a laugh). I don’t care what the sneaky, sly halfwits running Ireland do and I certainly don’t give a fiddlers what the French do, it’s their business IMO. I’ll go with the flow or move on.
Having said all that, I’m enjoying the US primaries. IMO the US needs and deserves Trump. We need to lance the US Boil.
