Trump and the decline and fall of the West

10 Nov

Not all things that happen in Britain take place in America first. Just sometimes, the transatlantic jetstream of history is reversed.Such was case last night with the election of Donald Trump. It defied the collective wisdom of the great and the good. It shocked. It blindsided. It made a nonsense of politicians who styled themselves as adults, inhabiting a space several floors above the gutter discourse of an upstart populist. The reputation of a whole tribe of hangers on – mass data pedlars, pollsters, pundits, the media, anyone and everyone you trusted for their insight – collapsed with them. They would have been better off watching The Simpsons.
