Review of 2018?

Really?

UK politics has been dominated by brexit, or rather the non-event of brexit. Simply watching a parade of vacuous Tory idiots spouting inanities  until the stupidity of their positions becomes obvious and they either resign or be sacked and replaced by the next in line to say more or less the same thing. We have barely advanced in 12 months; it was all BS then and it's BS now.

US? Trump, it was BS at the start of the year and it's all BS now. Mueller may or may not deliver us from evil but I have no confidence that the US legal or political systems are robust enough to do anything about it.

Democracies are failing to deliver because inequality and poverty are just too convenient for the people who wield the real power.

And meanwhile climate change is turning into a runaway train.

So a review of 2018? Really?
