Trevor Noah is right - there are "people saying that Indians are going to take over Great Britain*" but they are mainly in his native South Africa and my native Bulgaria, as well as in other marginal countries in the West Indies and elsewhere around the world.
Brits themselves have always dreamt for Indians taking over Great Britain, knowing them to be of an older, richer culture of more class/cast- division and soffisticatoin.
Yet, Brits are not crossed with you dear Noah, they know what it is like to have to deliver every single day for money. Hence, they forgive you and suggest that South Africa should be also run by Indians. Preferably billionaires.
On its front page, this same edition of The Times, features a lengthy, icon style portrait of Putin en lieu of the question "What should we do with Putin?"
I will tell you what : We go and fight him in Ukrain. Not later, not after but NOW.
This is what we shoud do so that the worst-looking man in the whole universe does't mock our relatively decent looking Liz Truss. Nor anybody else for the matter. For we all know what happens when small, funny, talantless men become cocky and with a higher self-estime than necessary solely at the back of (which means because of) our good manners. Because we insist to remain civilised and polite in the face of rudeness instead of giving them a good smack up their snub-stupid nose.
Go and fight Putin now. In body and weapon. In person. In Ukrain. Rather sooner than later.
Based on The Times of Friday 28 October
PS I've said it in my main article "Rebel Rebel" today and I'll repeat it with pleasure: Putin hasn't given himself to self-inflicted confinement. Regardless of the fact that the October Revolution for one, and his Soviet Union for two has caused not less trouble to the world than capitalisme, slaveism and whatever have you ism.
IT IS NOT THE TIME TO BE INTROVERT
And never forget : whilst SOMETHING is ideology, anti-SOMETHING is never an ideology. That's why communism failed - it never became more than anti-capitalism.
IT IS NOT THE TIME TO GIVE YOURSELF TO SELF CONFINEMENT OR SOUlSEARCHING. Actually, YOU CAN SOULSEARCH WHILE IN OFFENSE.
Why am I writing so much about Persia? Because there now, there are so many people paying a very high personal price for their rights and freedoms. There. Not here.
* Otherwise Noah is right, there is nothing more demeaning the authority of GB around the world than letting "an Indian" to lead. They even perceive him as the head of state or say "at the throne" as if Rishi, not Charles, inherited HM the diseased queen. Haha previously known as the game of Russian Telephone.
