Trump in London (& out of It)

Reflections on American president Donald Trump’s visit to the UK and how he was based in London but spent less time there than his blow-up effigy!  Along the way you’ll encounter everything from A to Zen: airborne food mixers, buddleia, parts of London inspired (or owned) by the monarch, lots of things in north west London or north west of London and a Zen Buddhist anecdote.

Another in Adrian’s occasional monologue strand, Letter from London, written by him.

Top Secret: Brexit Briefing

When a young Royston Lewis-Davidson (not his real name)  looked out over the playing fields of Eaton, he can’t have imagined his future career would come to this. Now a senior civil servant at the Department for Exiting the EU, he finds it challenging to hear some of the more ‘out there’ ideas relating to borders, cakes and fish.

From an unusual part of London’s Whitehall operation, he candidly gives his views on how the Brexit process is going.
