Am watching the plucky Aussies attempt to overcome a bunch of technically superior Danes, appreciating the hopes and aspirations of so many are wrapped up in the outcome. It’s a game…people take life too seriously. Neighbourhood activists, for instance, have a coach booked to take them to London for this weekend’s ‘March for a People’s Vote’. By activists I mean the sort of dipsticks that post selfies of themselves arm-in-arm with that dog-turd A.C. Grayling (similar age group and alma mater). They’re very much the minority around here, albeit a vocal and influential one. So much so our whore of an MP has consistently rebelled against the government line in an effort to maintain her cosy sinecure. Entertaining stuff that it is, it doesn’t keep me awake at night.
