Rob Little’s Blog – musings of an English / British Tour Guide where I not only vent about things that “get my goat” but, also, publish lovely photos and eccentric stories about “this Sceptered Isle”!

To give praise where praise is due I’m beginning to come round to The President’s way of thinking…..
Tuesday, 27th November 2018

Although, generally, I flout interventions in British affairs by foreign politicians, I must say I laud the comments made by President Trump that, while, hardly profound, were absolutely true. Indeed Britain cannot negotiate any trade agreements with the USA based on the current agreement with the EU and it is a great agreement for the EU (and a crap one for us Brits). Thank you Mr President!

Meanwhile, former Conservative cabinet minister Sir Michael Fallon describes the Mrs May’s “Deal” as “doomed” and “the worst of all worlds” – pretty unequivocal for a previously loyal and restrained gent!

🎵“There may be trouble ahead”…..🎶

Mrs May is not a “natural” when it comes to Facing the music and dancing.

“Sabbatical……”
Monday, 26th November 2018

7:30am this morning

If any of my little band of followers have noticed I’ve gone quiet over the past few days it’s because I’m having a sort of “sabbatical” in my beloved Dartmouth.

I must say this mornings dawn, above, is a little more hopeful than in the past few days of rain and wind but this, I think, is the eye of the storm as there is much more stormy weather on its way!

We Brits don’t celebrate Thanksgiving…..
Thursday, 22nd November 2018

We Brits don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but ever since I have been in this business I have sort of hoped to be in the middle of a tour so I could invite people into my house and attempt to celebrate with them and make it feel like home.

Sadly its never happened…..maybe one day !

Hi to all my past and future friends and fellow travelers – have a great Thanksgiving !!

Remember Christmas is coming !

Lock HER up ?? Is what’s good for the goose what’s good for the gander…..?
Tuesday, 20th November 2018

I suppose now that Ivanka Trump has been found out sending hundreds of official emails through a private server, it is now inevitable that she is set on a course for incarceration??

Fox News Sunday – Chris Wallace was combative…..almost…..
Sunday, 18th November 2018

He asked all the right questions, stood together with CNN and the rest of the “fake press” but if it had been a British interview there’d have been some tough backup questions.

At around 7 minutes in, Wallace barely hides exasperation when he said “The idea that you call us the enemy of the people…..we’re all together…..when you call CNN and The New York Times….we’re in solidarity Sir…..”

The whole clip is worth watching.

How utterly awful that the President forgot the name of the town destroyed by fire and called it “Pleasure”…..

How utterly awful that the President forgot the name of the town destroyed by fire and called it “Pleasure”…..instead of “Paradise”.

Quite how he could make such a mistake, one cannot imagine but I feel sorry to the people counting on his support and empathy.

I also feel sorry for the President – a very embarrassing and painful moment for him no doubt. Perhaps a reaction to the shock of what he saw around him.

Malmesbury…..one of my favourite towns, by drone with a low autumnal sun……
Saturday, 17th November 2018

Just seemed like a nice afternoon for a flight…..

Malmesbury is a beautiful little town.

Our thoughts go out to all those lost in the fires in California…..

With, now, over 1000 people missing; this unprecedented event shocks the world.

The destruction of an entire town is something we cannot begin to understand here.

RIP to all those who have lost their lives and our heartfelt sorrow to those who have lost family and whose appear on our screens every night surviving in tents and just wanting to go home…..

One hopes the authorities can do something quickly to relieve the conditions these poor people are enduring.
