The New Hope?

It is done now, and Barrack Obama has been installed as the latest American President.

The whole world seems to be celebrating over this fact, and he does seem to offer some hope. My only fear is that he will turn out to be like Tony the Phoney Blair and just be a good orator while leaving the running of the country to a bunch of malevolent incompetents who ruin the place. At least he does not seemingly have his own equivalent of Gordon Brown to wreck everything, but I would not mind betting Hilary Clinton will turn out to be a disaster. This could be his plan, of course, to make sure she can never run for President. If so, hats off to him.

I sincerely hope I am wrong in all these suppositions, but I have more than a sneaking suspicion that I am not!

Serves him right

I see Boris Johnson. Mayor of London,  got done for not paying his congestion charge. Serves him right for not abolishing it the moment he came to power!!
