After the exit pole and the manifestation of Conservatives in the Blyth Valley we we are all trying to make sense of it all. Not only out of our beloved Europe - our fellow tribes people, our major trading partner, our scientific research co-respondent, but we have 5 and perhaps even 10 years of this… Continue reading UK Election of Boris

Trump news at 2am
I'm up at 2am for some reason. As I write up the adventurous day to commemorate Heligoland and an unusual gathering of Kelletts that is not a funeral, I catch up on breaking news, which being international, is thankfully not the politicing of Brexit, but rather the 'larger than life', rainbow colourful, and sad at… Continue reading Trump news at 2am

Trump – October reflections
The surprise of Trump - October/November 2016 Jill Lepore The election of 2016 will not be remembered for anything beautiful. Injury, fear, blame, hatred. An election gone wrong. Politics believes factions natural. Robust discussion. Madison. Formation of Republicaions and Federalists. We are all republicans we are all federalists, assuming the 1964 parties began to diverge, … Continue reading Trump – October reflections
