Diary Conceit - Trump in the Papers Again

#1 Post by FranktheFrank » 16 Oct 2019, 18:09

“The American suspect in a crash that killed a British teenager
no longer has diplomatic immunity after returning home,
the British Foreign Office has said.”
BBC News 13 October 2019

The parents of the late Harry Dunn meet Mr Trump,
the newscaster reads out the information mournfully
as if a crime has been committed by the Dunn’s.
My newspaper has been pressed with a warm iron,
I pick it up to read the same information. Why can’t
the British drive on the right like everyone else.
