Always look on the bright side
Like many I switch on the morning news and immediately turn it off again. If it’s not the EU facing an existential migrant crisis, NHS stealth taxes, or the usual bleeding hearts, it is more knavish tricks designed to wreck Brexit. Am embarrassed to admit I chuckled over the story of a man being crushed to death by his own mother’s coffin after trying to push it up a bamboo ladder at her funeral. Brought back memories. Thank god for the World Cup, which, touch wood, appears to be going well – perhaps I was a bit hasty in my criticism of the hosts. Of course England haven’t played yet, though all of us are hardwired for disappointment.
