  1. Just a note — I think many Europeans get skewed interpretations of US politics, and it may be because the journalists they hear from don’t understand it. The thought that Ivanka was running for the Senate was one such interpretation. She dispelled such rumors openly to Rubio. However, there are rumblings that Don Trump, Jr is running for governor of New York, and that is probably more credible. Caitlyn Jenner is thinking of running for governor of California.

  2. I was thinking about the way modern women are keeping their maiden names when they get married. I always thought it was odd that after a divorce, American women have to ask permission from a judge to revert back to their maiden name. You would have thought as it is their name on the birth certificate they wouldn’t need to. And if a judge refuses permission do they have the right to change it by deed poll? I may be mistaken but it doesn’t seem to be a problem here in the UK.

  3. “Taiwan worrying about war threat” 1st October 2020 by Marjorie

    “China flanks Taiwan with military exercises in air and sea”, cnn article “https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/07/asia/china-taiwan-military-surrounded-intl-hnk-scli-ml/index.html”

    Looking back on your post from last fall, it seems PRC is doing a lot of sabre-rattling, even pulling out the sabre and flashing it about…to see who blinks first? (The US or Taiwan). Tho your blog posting suggests President Xi will be facing internal challenges t he next few years. So the war-mongering by US arms salesmen and politicians may come to naught, in the end?

  4. Hello Marjorie. Rutger Bregman is back in the public eye with the 60 Minutes segment. I see that you had a look at hime once before.

  5. Marjorie,

    I understand that France and the UK have a love / hate relationship, but Macron’s behaviour seems way over the top. As you live in France, what do you think? And is he likely to be elected next time around?

  6. Marjorie, just been reading about the horror show that is Matt Gaetz. You wrote in 2019, “2021 looks a definite downer with depressing Solar Arcs and loss-making Pluto transits to a career midpoint.” It looks Plutonic indeed with a tidal wave of allegations involving and sex trafficking of minors. Do you think this is the end for Gaetz?

  7. Hi Marjorie,

    Is it a case of ‘time’s up’ for the likes of Jair Bolsonaro? Rodrigo Duerte?

    Thank you for this wonderful site.
