Two things happened this week that really proved that the world has moved on. The first was the first speech that Hillary Clinton made after her defeat. I haven’t got a clue what she was saying but she is now in the heading of forever being an also ran. We will never know whether she would or would not have been a great President and we have all moved on.
The second thing was the visit of President Obama to Europe for a NATO summit. Usually something like this would have been the main news but it was regulated to the middle order – almost under the heading of ‘…and in other news…’. This is a shame but he really is so last year because he no longer is the future. He will still have unimaginable power at his disposal until 20th of January next year but the world is now turning to a new sun. I can’t believe that I am about to write this but Donald Trump and all that entails is the future whether we like it or not. I somehow don’t think that Frau Merkel will be so starry eyed about him at the next NATO summit. Nor should any of us be.
