How accurate is the statement that history doesn’t repeat itself but instead, it rhymes? Becuase haven’t we seen this distraction before, in 2011? Days before the United States led a team of coalition troops into Iran and killed Osama Bin Laden.
With today’s headlines and the number one Google Trend being the engagement of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry of Wales, my senses are raised.
Questions have been swirling around as to why Prince Harry would marry a divorcee, clearly, the Star* (my opinion) of the hit the USA- television show Suits, would not be a proper match for a Prince, right?
Wrong! Because just like George W. Bush, who was led into the White House swinging by Papi’s (George H.W. Bush) left hand and Dick Chaney’s right side, so too is this marriage, a clear diversion.
That being, my bullshit reader tells me the timing of this engagement is somewhat on cue to distract people away from the quagmire that has become the Brexit negotiations.
The Independent’s Ms. Rachael Revesz writes today in an article entitled, ‘Brexit is UK’s Vietnam as’ no one wants to say it’s not going well,’ says LSE Professor,’ Conor Gearty.
Mr. Gearty writes in an LSE blog post, Happy Brexit? ,
“Brexit strikes me as our Vietnam. Everybody rational knows it is – how can I put it politely? – not going well. But no one with authority seems able to say so.”
