It’s amazing how with the death of Michael Jackson time seems to have stopped. People have stopped starving to death in Africa, there are no wars, no threats to world peace, no environmental disasters, no companies announcing mass redundancies, entire nations are no longer financially crippled and global warming is no longer a threat to the future of our planet. Phew. Thank goodness for that then.
As my husband said this morning whilst watching Sky News:
‘We’ve had fifteen minutes of Michael Jackson, 15 seconds of British detainees being released in Iran, 10 seconds on the policing of the G20 summit and 5 minutes of Wimbledon.’
It’s good to know we have our priorities right.
