It is probably not necessary to tell you this, Steve, but I’ll hardly respond to your great Trumpophobic series in the coming weeks. I’ll just tap 50 times every time I’ve been entertained by your magnificent nonsense that is so true. The reason: I put my iPad away most of the time, to make time for reading great books. At the moment I am deeply moved by the masterwork of Annie Proulx: Barkskins. Always have loved her novels, every one of them, but this is the summit of writing. After that I will board on Yuval Noah Harari’s ‘Sapiens’ and ‘Homo Deus’.

With kind regards, your true, faithful but ever more confused fan.
