Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
Power corrupts, a truism.
That power could cause such hubris,rank condescension, and just plain appallingly bad manners boggles the mind, on both sides of the Atlantic.
The Anglo disease in all its horrible blowback, making governments go mad within their own halls.
If someone told me May was being paid to throw sand in every gearbox imaginable, it would ring truer than any other explanation.
Likewise with the Trumpephant, demolishing American institutions like a Gleeful Reaper from within its most exalted position of power.
It's all a bit Burning Man...
