Divert Mr Trump Away from UK

Hello

It may be a thought to divert Mr Trump’s plane away from Heathrow and send him to Scotland. However, that would be to miss seeing the giant caricature balloon of himself.

Also, if he utters the word ‘football’, a word sacred to the English,, even if we eventually lost, he will whip up distaste from a whole nation.  When we react to a national event, we are just as passionate as Mr. Trump.

So he laid into Angela Merkel’s  German government today. She looked like she was trying not to laugh.  Mr Trump must have got the wrong end of the stick. She dismissed his remarks, but gently as you would to a child in a paddy.

Time to put up those screens. We won’t be talking Trump; we’ll be celebrating the English team who gave us a semi-final to watch. It is the first time in 28 years and it seems that there will be a possible runner-up match on Saturday. Let them win something beyond memories and our supporters in Russia will thank them.

Congratulations to England; we loved it, but we lost it. Let’s keep cheering for them until Sunday. Of course then will be the culmination of Wimbledon and the ultimate in channel-hopping.

Have an exciting weekend.

Footballers Will Unite Against Terrorism

Hello, I’m back after a prolonged absence, but I owe it to my grandmothers who inspired the name for this site: Lucy Woodward and Louise (known as Lou to Grandad) Stokes.

You see, some crazy person attacked a football bus, Dortmund.  Have they never heard of football fans?  About 75% of adult men in the UK have some connection with football. To the terrorists, don’t even think about it.  They would find you and after that, who knows?

The other moot point is that they young men on the bus were made to play the next day, which seems so uncaring as to be incredible.  The coach of the other team had been Dortmund’s coach.  He said (in the Times, football section 14 April 2017) that he had seen delayed shock in the eyes of the young men he had coached.  Somebody got it wrong.  There is not bowing to terrorism and mental upset caused by such an incident. I hope that Dortmund’s coaches can make them strong again and get them some security. You would have fans competing for the honour.

See you next week, all being well as Grandma Lucy used to say to me.
