I really don’t understand….

28 Feb
  1. Why a 52/48 referendum close call (with 28% not voting) shows that Brexit means Brexit and the Will of the People is unequivocally in favour of death by a thousand cuts over the next many, many, many years.
  2. Why a man on the tube today squeezed his spots and wiped the unpleasant seepage on the seat cushion.
  3. Donald Trump.
  4. UKIP.
  5. Why a mistake on a card at an awards show is the first item on each national news channel.
  6. Why school pupils need to manipulate complicated sine and cosine equations for GCSE but struggle with their times tables and can’t add 231 and 345 in their heads.
  7. Why there is so much bellyaching about poor soccer refereeing decisions, yet the world’s richest game won’t use the technology available as all other high profile sports do.
  8. Why Leicester players get a brilliant and nice man sacked and then start to try.
  9. Why four people having a meal together in Pizza Express  (Trafalgar Square) sat in silence staring at their iPhones.
  10. Opera.

That’s enough brain-ache for one day.

    Hi Sorro Nine out of ten is pretty good, I think… ‘Opera’ too big a group to dismiss, IMHO. Even I can think of lots of exceptions… By the way, I really enjoy the distinctive Sorro style, with ‘the big issues’ mixed in with your Hogarth-like ‘scenes from daily life’… Fond regards Trots x

      Thanks Trotty. I bunged Opera in to make up the 10 for the day. I enjoyed Pretty Woman and managed to smile at Pirates of Penzance at the ENO last week. B was in raptures of course. They had subtitles flashing across the proscenium arch which was a bit of a cheat but made the show manageable. Vaudeville, really, not opera…but clever despite the spirit of Brian Rix crossed with Bertie Wooster making it all rather silly. Opera is far more serious, of course. Some poignant moments in La Traviata but, Opera is, for the most part, strange and, of course, hijacked by the wing-collar classes. Belinda is at Sleeping Beauty tonight (live streaming at cinema). I have decided to do an in-depth study of Holby City.

    Loved it Sorro, seepage haunting my coffee and croisant here at Mardi Gras!

      Thanks Rich. Envious of Mardi Gras. It’s a cold and wet Shrove Tuesday here..

    Don’t start me on No 8. Sat behind Ranieri’s dug out in Seville and he really, REALLY cared! The following day when he was sacked, I lost all interest in football. 50 years of my life following a team and a sport that I just don’t get any more. As with so many other things these days, it’s all about the money……….which is applicable to all of your points, bar number two, which is just rude! xx
