Trump finds Brexit’s pastures not quite as green as predicted

It has been a gloomy festive period on the sunlit uplands of sovereign Britain, as new post-Brexit customs controls caused added disruption at our borders and a leading UK cheese supplier called Boris Johnson’s oven-ready trade deal with the EU the “biggest disaster any government has ever negotiated”.

There was sad news too for one Scottish business owner, who revealed
in a financial disclosure document that Brexit had hit him with higher prices
“from additional freight and import duty charges” and lower availability of staff “with lack of access to European staff for businesses in general resulting in greater demand for individuals previously available”. Meanwhile, the ongoing supply chain crisis was blamed for “reducing deliveries and availability of certain product lines.”

Who was this unlucky entrepreneur? Presidential grifter and election
crybaby Donald J Trump, whose golf courses at Turnberry and Balmedie lost
a combined £7m in 2020.

That’s the same Trump, of course, who once called himself “Mr Brexit”, who formed his own gruesome twosome with nicotine-stained man-frog Nigel Farage and who hailed the 2016 referendum vote by claiming, “I think it’s a fantastic thing… they took back their country; that’s a great thing.”

He later predicted that Brexit would allow the UK to “take back their
monetary”, that a full break-up of the European Union “looks like it’s on its
way”, that his administration would shortly sign a trade deal with Britain
that would be “one of the advantages of Brexit” and that Boris Johnson “would do a very good job as prime minister. I think he would be excellent”.

The Trump family’s losses in were confirmed in accounts signed by the
former president’s son Eric, who recently assured Americans that
allegations of collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign
could be discounted because his family were not “smart enough” to do it. “’We didn’t know what the hell we were doing,” he added. Which explains a lot about Trump and Brexit, as well as Trump and everything else…

There is nothing wrong with Critical Race Theory… except the name

The term should never have escaped the halls of academe. But, a more appropriate name for it would be the truth.
