OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!

NO, IT’S NOT A JOKE

Trumpy Bear can be yours for only $19,95 (Plus shipping and handling, whatever “handling” might be!). Or so it would seem until you look at the website (linked above).

In the small print at the bottom of the page, it points out that there are two payments of $19,95 plus $6,95 S&H. So the top line price far from being $19,95, is actually $46.85!

A tad overpriced for this tacky piece of tat, wouldn’t you say?

Now, when you stop vomiting, can I just point out that you could get a handsome bear with an orangy brown coat, and stick a duster on his head for a good deal less, as Munguin did with his mate Scruffy Bear.

Alternatively, President Trump-Biscuit is still hanging around Munguin Towers… And he was only 85p!

HISTORY?

Sheesh!

SO WHAT’S HAPPENING ‘OVER THERE’?

Sometimes you reflect on the utter embarrassment that is the warring Westminster government, and the opposition that, well, I dunno about you, but does anyone, much less them, have an idea what their Brexit policy is?

You know perfectly well that people all over Europe and the rest of the world (in as much as they give a stuff about what’s happening here), are choking themselves laughing at the mess that mighty Britannia has got itself in.

But, there’s always the comfort that the insignificant May and her hapless squabbling friends… well, no, not friends… more, well, enemies, are no marks on the international ridicule scale, compared with the orange-faced muppet in the Gold House.

He is, quite simply, incomparable.

Enjoy, as Seth and his team takes a “Closer Look” some of the more ridiculous moments in the last few days…

IT’S NOT ONLY IN THE UK THAT NO ONE’S LISTENING

So, old Tess addressed the United Nations General Assembly today and almost no one showed up. There were obviously doing stovies and corned beef in the canteen, or something!

Yesterday President Macron drew a far larger crowd and, of course, the place was full to bursting when Coco the Clown appeared doing his Rocket Man act. But then everyone loves a comic as top of the bill.

OK, no one else, except maybe Putin or Xi is going to draw a crowd like that. I’m not sure what they were expecting… maybe a mix between Miss World and The Apprentice, but they came along to hear what he had to say, because however mad he is, he is the POTUS and however ridiculous his statements, what he says counts for something.

It is a mark of how unimportant Britain is that President Mahmoud Abas of Palestine got a bigger crowd than Mayhem.  Simply no one is interested in what Britain thinks.

I know May has made a big thing of this speech she is giving in Florence (why Florence… taking advantage of the free travel while she’s still got a job?) on Friday. I’m just wondering if anyone will turn up!

Many people in the UK could be relatively unaware of what is happening in Catalonia given that the BBC seems determined to give it as little coverage as possible. I had the car radio on the way home tonight and the ‘PM’ show on Radio 4 had sent a reporter off to India to find out about how some company there is making saris just like Mother Theresa wore (you know, the nun, not the prime ministerial joke). In the time I was listening not a word was said about democracy being trampled under a jackboot in a European country.

The take over of the government of Catalonia by the Spanish seems to be of little import to Britain, deserving of even less coverage than the daily killing of kids in Yemen (ya know, using British bombs).

Munguin just wanted to say that we support the Catalonians wholeheartedly as they have done for us. We wish them well in these dreadful times and we find their spirit and courage to be inspiring. We really hope they get their vote out in the referendum without violence and that Spain will come to its senses and accept that being a democratic country means that you have to allow democracy.

In the long term, you cannot hold on to something that does not wish to be held.
