Unbelievable-but-true. There is a warpness about these things. If it were Saudi Arabia maybe I wouldn't have worried about it. But this is England. A terribly bad portent. I sense that "Western" countries (and that includes the USA) are all imbibing the same acid-laced Kook-Aid. It would be hilarious except that it is so dangerous.

I hope you win whatever legal hoops you have to jump through. But I sense the dyke has broken. Putin; The Iranians; even the Chinese are laughing with glee as the "Western Alliance" skids into absurdity. It's one thing for great empires to lapse and disappear. But This is a coat of a different color. Basically it is self-hatred. Masochism. Decades ago I was a patriotic young man protesting the Vietnam War at the Mall in DC. 1967 I was shocked. The sarcasm of most of the protestors. And clearly the vast majority of protesters were far more involved in weed than protesting. I am left with an eerie feeling. And now I know what it meant. That was "the tipping point" for America. Of course the "tipping point" of a great Empire is not recognized until many decades later. USA: Requiesquat in Pace.
