Too Hot

Ugh! It is 31°C in here and I can’t be bothered to slag off Brexit again.

People say it is like 1976 but I remember 1976; All the crayons melted into one big blob of wax¹ at my primary school. The government melted too, but the comparison does not feel right. Jim Callaghan was a decent person who did his best in an impossible situation where the rules had been rewritten so that he simply wasn’t allowed to win. Theresa May may feel that she too is “in an impossible situation where the rules have been rewritten so that she simply isn’t allowed to win” although that would suggest a greater level of self-awareness than she has shown previously. Besides, the comparison breaks down at “decent person”. It is the difference between trying to do the right thing for the country in the face of impossible odds and just trying to paper over the cracks and hang on for another few weeks in the face of impossible odds.

Anyway, I can’t be bothered to slag off Brexit today so I suggest you all go and read Marina Hyde in the Guardian instead. She always knows what is going on.

¹ – Fun fact: That blob of melted wax is now Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
