Doing It All Over Again

Listening to a debate in the British Parliament today, and apparently the Kool-Aid is flowing across the Pond. The Conservatives are all for sucking up to Trump to get a trade deal. Even willing to, as one lovely Scotsman put it, "Pimp out the Queen." The Liberals objecting to Trumps racism, misogyny, cruelty, ignorance and general distastefulness also mention that he has refused to meet with Prince Charles. Charles is England's Al Gore on the issue of climate change.
As in this country the Conservatives spit out the word Liberal with the usual venom of a Party that defends self interest over the common good. Self righteous and self serving as they are, someone should remind them that Chamberlain was a Conservative. For as much as the stink of humanity learns from the past, one could say of history, as the Bard said of life, "it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
