Prince Charles needs to step up!
While Prince Charles is unlikely to make a public statement over Jerusalem being promoted as Israel’s capital by Trump it’s highly unlikely he would give royal approval and both the Turkish and Russian Presidents have denounced Trump’s declaration thereby ruling themselves out as contenders for the Antichrist.
It would make a good sketch for a comedy writer but sadly try convincing 50 million evangelicals that they’re totally wrong … remember these are the lot who voted Trump into power in the first place.
Hamas has said Trump’s actions have opened the gates of Hell and, for once, Christian evangelicals probably agree with them!

Around 3.67 million years ago one of our ancestors was running around when she slipped and plunged down a narrow shaft in the Sterkfontein Caves north of Johannesburg.
I don’t know if she was even missed at the time but today the world’s media has propelled Little Foot into the spotlight after scientists spent 20 years excavating and cleaning her bones to put on show.
Artist Andy Warhol once said “everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes” and it seems Little Foot’s moment has arrived.
Senator Al Franken has finally announced his resignation and become the highest-ranking US politician to quit in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct.
He follows a long line of powerful men who have influenced Hollywood, Silicon Valley, the media and politics. Speaking on the Senate floor, after announcing his decision to go, he said: “All women deserve to be heard and their experiences taken seriously.”Well all I can say is don’t let the door bang you on the way out, Al!
I love the English language and see it constantly being attacked by millennials who are obsessed with communicating by emojis. So you can imagine my joy on hearing plans to introduce a “frowning pile of poo” emoji have been flushed away.
According to my man in Silicon Valley, the ‘poo’ symbol was being floated for 2018, but failed to impress the Unicode Consortium that pushes out a central list of emoji so that they show up properly on different devices.
Frankly, I was shocked. Not because I felt any attachment for a pile of electronic excrement, but that such a consortium exists for no other reason than to curate the standard list of emoji.
