Wild conspiracy theories used to be a bit of fun, not the fucking mainstay of public political thinking as reality fails to coddle people's prejudices and egos enough for their liking. Western society is overrun by self entitled complacent whining imbeciles.
Part of me wonders if it might be better if he did win the presidency. Chances are he would do nothing as he lacks the competency or real interest to concern himself with policy. There'd be a massive bun fight and chaos in US politics and the thing would devolve into a discredited shambles by the next election. Clearing the air might be better than letting the public mindset that's lead to the rise of Trump fester and grow. Trump, a vain spiteful self serving egostist, worries me a lot less than his supporters who actively embrace this hateful irrational nonsense.
Having been away for a while hadn't realised how good Cal had got. Great time.
9.8miles on/off-road in 1hr16. Nice to get some miles done and leg was alright. Haven't mucked it up again. Better when it warms up. Got that nice post run serenity which haven't felt in a while.
So how's it all working out? The pound's not looking too clever; rate of inflation, food and fuel look set to rise. Parliamentary scrutiny out of favour - I vaguely remember something about the importance of the sovereignty of parliament to make the decisions vital to our national interest. Nothing constructive actually happened yet beyond talk of hard Brexit, whatever the hell that is. Exclusion from the single market I guess. I'm sure it will all be fine.
Happy birthday Swittle.
Having a real topsy turvy time. Slowly trying to get back from injury. Stamina, distance and pace all a bit erratic, to be expected. Yesterday decided to put in a steady pace longer run to get back some endurance. 2 miles in turned my ankle. Exactly the same thing that lead to the ligament tear. Public place otherwise I would have been shouting industrial strength expletives. Jogged home. Remains to be seen what the knock on effect is , but ankle's not good which will load extra strain back on the damaged ligament if I run. Bollocks.
