Starting from somewhere

I am not sure what I am going to do with this blog, probably use it to learn more about WordPress, but in so doing I hope to share a few thoughts and maybe make some sense of this world, which has taken a major turn towards the bizarre over the past year or so. As I sit here tapping away on my broken laptop keyboard, I am listening to a news source, the stories from which only a year or so ago would have been considered unthinkable, lunatic. The condition of the NHS is the least extraordinary; the trend has been around for a long time and it is just the fact that no one has bothered to grab a hold of the problem that we find ourselves in the mess we do today. But for the country to be facing Brexit and America to have a president more suited to an episode of the Muppets is something completely different. We live in interesting times and it would be incredible if we could travel in time to see what the history books make of the situation.
