Two months into 2017… and it seems that 2016 was not so bad after all!
Ok; 2016 was weird. Politically, economically, and personally. There was Brexit, a crazy US Election, and Middle Eastern wars intensifying to terribly ends. Not to forget, all the celebrity treasures that crossed over to the other side, including Alan Rickman, David Bowie, and Carrie Fisher.
It was one bad thing after another. On Channel 4’s The Last Leg, 2016 was given the annual ‘Dick of The Year’ award.
But as 2017 is unfolding, things aren’t going much better. Namely most of the terrible things are pointing towards America, due to Donald J. Trump being the “President” of the United States. There’s already been a bunch of protests around the world in relation to his swearing-in, the Muslim Travel Ban, and the repeal of women’s abortion rights.*
With France and Romania currently flaring up with political issues, and Britain having had backed themselves into a hard corner with Brexit, the future does not look bright. The war in Syria still rages on, while Trump stirs up mayhem with his tweets and executive orders.
The jury is out, 2017, the jury is out…
