As most of the world recovers from the shock of Donald Trump’s victory, I find myself in Canary Wharf, London, this afternoon, ahead of a work assignment over here next week. People are going about their Saturday shopping in the nearby plush shopping centre
I’m going to be honest and say that I saw this one coming, and have just pocketed the sweet little early Christmas bonus from a once in a lifetime flutter, into my bank account earlier this afternoon.
Darkness and beauty of a 21st century kind, perhaps one could say.
But I don’t think it will be the doom and gloom Presidency for the USA many are scared of. Already Trump’s rhetoric post-victory is changing and it was very biased pro-Democrat media which fooled almost everyone in the UK into believing Hillary would win.
Canary Wharf is gearing up for Christmas already and this year expect to see Santa bringing a greater strengthening of the so-called ‘special relationship’ with the USA next year, in a post-Brexit Britain, in fact facilitated by Trump, rather than enhindered by his promotion to the Presidency. These are indeed fascinating historic times, and this week will be remembered for many years to come, as the week a certain Trump reverberated around the world.
