1/30/17 ftf, wren

I don’t have a lot of to-dos today, but J will be back to work, so it feels as if I should have at least a little structure.  My plan is to read and nap, devote about two hours to work stuff (I’m actually making good progress on the annual budget), and do some walking at the rec center.

What’s the press over the pond saying about Teresa May’s meeting with the big Cheeto?  Lots of eyebrows are being raised over here about how they held hands when walking out of the meeting.  I think she was probably glad to at know the whereabouts of his hands…

I’m also curious to know if there’s any discussion about Putin being behind the Brexit movement?

  1. I’m not following the politics very closely – too depressing! Certainly there’s concern. Not so much linking Putin with Brexit, although I do remember a comment from a while back, about how it must suit him to have Europe so destabilized.

  2. I think the reaction here was that Theresa May did all right, but then just after she left, the orange one introduced the Muslim ban which has put the cat among the pigeons. Tricky to respond diplomatically to that. I don’t think anyone thinks Putin was behind Brexit – the UK has a long history of ambivalence towards the EU – but yes, no doubt he is pleased about it.
