    Congrats Jen! Best wishes on the Pulitzer, and another well done reality check with our President. I can hear him now: “Jen Sorensen – Loser”

    Indeed, dear Lizzy. Brexit is a right-wing coup. What more needs to be said? As a gay rights supporter I have already been labelled a terrorist, so you’d better have nothing more to do with me.

    There is, I believe, a small uninhabited rock in the south Pacific where I might be content provided I don’t mind being pecked to death by albatrosses.

    It’s the post-Trump trauma that most makes me unmotivated to move to the US. When he goes, the government will be in the hands of the fundamentalists à la Handmaid’s Tale. Then it will become just like Chechnya today, I imagine.
    Never thought I’d quote the Daily Mail in a supportive context but times have changed, as Bob once sang. I wasn’t Jewish, so they didn’t come for me.

    Good luck with the Involution. I just hope it doesn’t lead to general support for Trump as a way of side-stepping his punitive wrath. It’s beginning to look an awful lot like the 1930s again to me, Lizzy. All that Madame Blavatsky mysticism and Crowleyian magic just seemed to melt away in the face of fascism.

        You’d be most welcome, Lizzy. I just hope the food doesn’t run out. Bearing in mind The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, I don’t think I could bring myself to eat albatross.

        Thanks for posting the link, Amy. If any organisation can bring this frightening development into focus, Amnesty can. Germany went down this hideous pathway under Hitler and it’s a fair bet that once these death camps have become established it won’t just be gay men who are taken there.

          Yep you start by picking on one group and then cast the net wider. Mind you, probably by now a good few political dissidents have found a home there.

          There should be international outrage at this. I guess it must be at a premium.

    Yes dear Amy, hopefully what Eric is imagining on what will happen with the upcoming August Full Moon Eclipse will finally reveal who the real loser is. Walt Whitman’s claimed we contradict ourselves, but what we are witnessing is something way different. As Len mentioned the Civil War is yet to end, and another generation is wounded by it.
