What a flaming cheek!

Having screwed up his job in this country, Broon has been floating around the third world this week trying to drum up more work for sweatshops to produce consumer goods for fat idle westerners that the poverty-stricken Chinese and Indian workers who make them couldn't aspire to buy in a million years. Oh yes, and he wants to flog off bits of our country to any third world slave driver who has become tired of exploiting his poorer compatriots and now wants a safe place to invest his loot.

None of which is the point of this post. The above paragraph is just politics in the global economy. The sewer stinks, shooting one rat isn't going to solve the problem. My objection is this.

STATE VISIT indeed! Broon is the Prime Minister - arguably the worst ever, but even the best one never made a state visit anywhere. A state visit is made by a head of state, ie Her Majesty. Thank God, we are not yet a republic. Broon is not President, nor would he ever be. OK, it may just be that it has come from an American news source which didn't know any better, but it makes my blood boil. Unlike the current weather. Right. I'm off to bed.
