Part of getting older is that you stop believing in make-believe. That’s why rational adults no longer believe in:
- Santa Claus.
- The Easter Bunny.
- The idea of President ‘America First’ Trump giving us a beneficial trade deal.
It’s childish to think Trump will give us a trade deal that’s only a bit worse. His entire shtick throughout his long and inglorious career has been to screw everyone close to him. And yet:
Off The Perch called President Trump to ask him about the future trade deal. We didn’t think he’d speak to us. And yet:
Is this another one of those prank callers? Good – I’ve got some words to bigly.
For starters – can you believe these Brits? I told them they’d get a good trade deal if they didn’t cross me and kept me amused. You know what they did to keep me happy? They sent me a shaved, talking polar bear called Boris Johnson.
I DON’T LIKE POLAR BEARS! I LIKE REGULAR BEARS!
These Brits are really taking me for a ride. Unbelievable! Can you imagine treating someone so unfairly?
I myself am very fair. And I think they’ll thank me when I turn their awful excuse for a country into a golf course.
When we played Nigel Farage a recording of this diatribe, the former UKIP leader smiled and pointed at an image of the pound’s falling value. We asked him if this meant he was somehow profiting from the UK’s failure, but he dismissed that as a conspiracy theory.
And yet he does look pretty much exactly like a lizard.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
