Tuesday Tale Spin

It is beginning to get rough out there.  Today, 2nd March The Telegraph carried an article by Tim Stanley titled "Tomorrow Belongs To Trump", which to most simply means that he is on his way to nomination as the Republic Candidate.

Thos with long memories  would recall the 1972 film "Cabaret" starring Liza Minnelli and Michael York set in Germany in the 1930's.  There is a scene in a rural Gasthaus where a young man sings a political anthem "Tomorrow Belongs To Me".

The Youtube clip lasts three minutes but says it all for the period.  Just how it applies to Trump in the second decade of the 21st Century is another matter entirely.  The words "cheap shot" come to mind.  I am not a fan of Mr. Trump but that is another story.

Meanwhile the media is full of our David Cameron's plan to centralise and control membership of the Conservative Party, seeing off all those nuisance locals who have their own ideas about his Grand Projects and Europe.

Yesterday, I mentioned the repeat of the "Yes Minister" series, as it happens the fourth in the first series is titled "Big Brother" and is about Hacker's idea to create a National Integrated Data Base with the names etc. of each and all on it, it will be Tuesday 9th March when it is screened.

I have this vision of a very young Cameron being plonked in front of the new colour telly with a bag of sweets while his parents shove off into the next room for a quiet bottle or two leaving David to watch Prime Minister Heath fool us, along with others, about Europe just being a trade association.

Cameron is becoming a second Heath in a number of ways and if so it is a matter of concern.  I recall the shambles that he left behind him that Wilson could not cope with and led to James Callaghan trying to plug the gaps without much success.

What is a worry is his increasing liking for the "cheap shot" and the easy untruth before moving on quickly to another subject.


  1. "Cameron is becoming a second Heath in a number of ways"

    Three day week here we come.

  2. I tackled a Cruz supporter the other day for telling porkies, gave him the data from Trump's mouth, he went quiet for the day, then next day was back with exactly the same guff.
