Today’s Oblique Strategy bought to me by Eno and Schmidt is…
Is it Finished?
After 10 months of this shit, some of them sedate, some hysterical, some busy, some with a dearth of work, some with more than they can shake a stick at, some easy, some tough, some happy, some sad, some mourning, some haven’t seen their grandchildren, some haven’t seen their parents, some haven’t been outside. It came to the point today when I turned on the radio and a scientist was talking about a 90% successful vaccine and the general feeling of bewilderment, disbelief and definitely optimism as the collective populous maybe thought the same as the children whispered,
“Is it Finished?”
Trump is on his way out, as so may be the pox, what other shit thing is losing stamina I wonder? Could we possibly see the end of Brexit as suddenly people see sense and the whole thing is called off and everyone gives everyone else a socially distanced pat on the back (there’s a phrase which we’ll be glad to see the back of but will be hard to shake). As we carry Nigel Farage down the beach and throw him into the sea, he who gives Tweed a bad name amongst many other things.
Let’s cross our fingers and toes and hope for the holy trinity of an arse kicking; Trump, Covid and The Johnson-Brexit (or any Brexit).
