COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

“Can Harry and Meghan make Britain whole again?”

Is the author serious?

A loopy young man who has never done a worthwhile thing in his life and a ferociously ambitious American woman – and why else would she even consider marrying the loopy prince? – are going to make a country, any country, “whole again”?

And we have this, “…she symbolises an America far better than Trump’s.”

Yes, but so what? Trump’s America is real, and it ain’t going away even if he does. Trailer parks, shot-gun racks, bellies over the belt, televangelists, gated communities, violent police…

What on earth does symbolizing matter, even if I were to agree with the author about what she symbolizes?

Santa symbolizes generosity and kindness, but does that help our condition?
